The Archer Queen is a Hero inspired by the regular Archer, but she is bigger, stronger, more powerful, and with a slightly bigger range.
Just as Archers, she is a ranged troop that uses a bow to hit ground and air targets. However, her range is bigger than a regular Archer: 5 tiles instead of 3.5.
Even though she shoots 3 arrows at a time, she makes single damage, capable of hitting a single target at a time.
During battles, the Archer Queen works similarly to a regular Archer. Without a preferred target, she will always target the closest building. If an enemy Hero or Clan Castle troop approaches, she will stop attacking the current defense and will attack the troop.
Special Ability: Royal Cloak
Her special ability Royal Cloak is unlocked on level 5. The Royal Cloak increases the damage output, recovers health, summons Archers and makes the Queen "invisible" for a short period of time. All perks, including the invisibility time, increases as you level up your Queen.
The invisibility perk prevents defenses from aiming at the Queen for a few seconds, being is extremely useful against single target Inferno Tower. If the Inferno targets the Queen, using the ability will force the Inferno to target a different troop.
However, being invisible doesn't prevent the Queen from taking damage from splash damage defenses that target near-by troops. If the Eagle Artillery by coincidence aims another troop close from her, she will take damage even with the Royal Cloak activated. She also triggers Giant Bombs and takes damage from them while using the Royal Cloak.
The Archer Queen is unlocked when you build the Archer Queen Altar. The Altar costs 40.000 Dark Elixir and requires a Town Hall level 9.
Like all other heroes, she is not upgraded on the Laboratory. Instead, she must be upgraded by leveling up her Altar with a Builder.
This hero currently has 80 levels and uses Dark Elixir to be upgraded.
Upgrading will increase her hit points, damage per second, and regeneration time.
Every 5 levels of upgrades will also improve her special ability, increasing health recovery, damage, the number of summoned units, and ability time.
