"This veteran battle-scholar seeks out groups of friendly troops to fight behind and boost with his Life Aura, and assumes the form of a tower on defense. Attacking, he can walk over walls or fly high, and can make nearby troops immune to damage once his Eternal Tome ability is unlocked!"
Obtaining the Grand Warden King
The Grand Warden is unlocked when you build the Grand Warden Altar. The altar costs 6,000,000 Elixir and a Town Hall level 11 is required.
Grand Warden Gameplay
He is not inspired by any regular troops, instead, he is a support Hero that becomes extremely important as you level him up.
Being a support Hero, he usually follows regular troops and targets the same defenses they are attacking. Regardless of the configuration (Ground or Air) he can always go over walls.
He is a long range, single target unit that targets ground/air troops and features 2 exclusive abilities: Life Aura and Eternal Tome.
This is the only Home Village hero that is upgraded with regular Elixir and not Dark Elixir.
Life Aura Ability (Passive)
The Grand Warden automatically creates a life aura to all near-by troops. This ability doesn't have to be activated, it works all the time as long as the Warden is alive.
This Aura gives additional health to all troops inside of its range. If a troop leaves the area, it loses the aura.
The amount of health increased depends on the level os the Grand Warden. However, there is a cap of how much health it can increase on each unit. For this reason, he is most effective with moderate health troops such as Balloons, Miners and Giants.
Eternal Tome Ability (Active)
This ability must be manually activated (just as the abilities from the other Heroes) and creates a protective shield.
All near-by troops will be completely protected from damage for a few seconds. This is extremely useful when huge damage is about to happen: Giant Bombs, Eagle Artillery and Giga Tesla bomb.
Grand Warden on Defense
The Grand Warden will defend your village when attacked. However, he works on different from the other Heroes: when the enemy starts the attack, he will run towards his altar and transform himself on a defense building.
This change makes him target of troops that can only attack defense buildings, such as Giants, Golems and Hog Riders.
