Gameplay

Clash of Clans | Home Village | Heroes | Barbarian King | Main Attack

The Barbarian King is a Hero inspired by the regular Barbarian, but he is bigger, stronger and has a special ability called Iron Fist.

During battles, the Barbarian King works just like a regular Barbarian. He is a melee troop and uses his sword to attack, does single damage and can target only ground units.

Without a preferred target, he will always target the closest building. If an enemy Hero or Clan Castle troop approaches, he will stop attacking the current defense and will attack that troop.

Special Ability: Iron Fist

Clash of Clans | Home Village | Heroes | Barbarian King | Iron Fist Ability
King with his Iron Fist activated

His special ability is called Iron Fist and can be unlocked on level 5. Iron Fist works similar to a Rage spell, but with even more perks: it partially heals him, summons up to 36 regular Barbarians and increases speed and damage.

This ability always lasts for 10 seconds and doesn't change as you upgrade your Hero.

Please note that Iron First can't be stacked with the Rage Spell. The Hero will be affected by the most beneficial perks of each.

Unlocking

The Barbarian King is unlocked when you build the Barbarian King Altar. The Altar costs 10.000 Dark Elixir and a Town Hall level 7 is required.

Upgrading

Like all other heroes, he is not upgraded on the Laboratory. Instead, he must be upgraded by leveling-up his Altar with a Builder.

This hero currently has 80 levels and uses Dark Elixir to be upgraded.

Upgrading will increase his hitpoints, damage per second and regeneration time.

Every 5 levels of upgrades will also improve his special ability, increasing the health recovery, damage, speed boost and the number of summoned units.

Free Skin / Gold Pass Giveaway

Every month when a new season starts, we have a giveaway on Twitter! In this promotion we always give a few free skins / Gold Passes to our followers. If you want to participate follow us on @HouseofClashers.
