Wall Breakers

  • Wall Breakers will now be able to use Jump Spell
  • Wall Breakers AI has been improved for greater target consistency and reduces the chance of them attacking different Wall segments when deployed.
  • Some attack damage has been shifted to the Wall Breakers death damage to make them more predictable and viable, assuming max Laboratory level for your respective Town Hall level:
    • 1x Raged Wall Breaker will destroy a Wall.
    • 2x Wall Breakers will destroy up to a level 9 Wall (TH9 and below).
    • 3x Wall Breakers will destroy a level 10+ Wall (TH9 and up).
    • 6x Wall Breakers can destroy a level 10+ Wall (TH9 and up) if they die in proximity.
  • Please refer to the table below for the updated Wall Breaker damage stats. NOTE: All damage versus Walls have a 40x damage multiplier.

Inferno Dragon

  • Inferno Dragon’s beam will no longer heat up while flying; however, the charge-up time for higher damage levels has been reduced.

Siege Barracks

  • To give Wizards a little bit of breathing room and comply with international Clash labor laws, the Level 4 Siege Barracks Wizards have been reduced from 12 to 11.

Electro Dragon

  • Electro Dragon’s chain lightning will now prefer targets with the highest hit points if multiple targets are equidistant.

Super Archer

  • Super Archer will no longer miss targets within 0.1 tiles of her.

Flying Unit AI

  • Improved the AI for all flying units by not forcing them to retarget when a Hidden Tesla appears when their current target is better.
