Skeleton Spell Explained

The Skeleton Spell spawns several Skeletons over time on the battlefield.

Skeletons are fast, low health troops that don't have a preferred target. They will always attack the closest building.

Skeletons, like the Bats, no longer trigger traps.

This spell uses one housing space, just as all Dark Elixir spells.

Stacking Skeleton Spells

Stacking Skeletons Spells is possible commonly used.

Using many Skeleton Spells at the same time increases the spawning rate of Skeletons. Since it has a housing space of only one, you can replace two Rage Spells with four Skeleton Spells and flood the battlefield with many, many Skeletons.

Upgrading Skeleton Spells

Upgrading the Skeleton Spell only increases the number of Skeletons spawned.

The damage and health of the Skeletons remain the same.

How to Use the Skeleton Spell

This spell can be deployed on any part of the map, so it's possible to drop on the top of a single-target Inferno Tower to create a distraction. However, Freeze Spell can do a better job at this.

When using troops that target defenses only - especially Hog Riders - the Skeleton Spell can be used to lure and kill some defense troops, such as skeletons from traps, and distract the Barbarian King and Archer Queen.

When using mass Balloons or mass Hog Riders - attacks that target defenses only - the Skeleton Spell can be used to destroy the buildings left behind.
