Heroes:After update!

Fellow clashers,

After the recent update, much has changed including new tesla's, pekka's and an improvement to the jump spell. The most important however, is the change to the heroes. Both the king and the queen have been updated, updates which will greatly change the way that many of us attack.

The main change is the inability to lure them to a corner. Before, most experienced attackers would lure both heroes and the clan castle to a corner where they can be dealt with quietly, before unleashing your army. However, after the new update, instead of the heroes themselves having a large "notice" area, they now have a static smaller area that is based upon their plinth. They will also return back into that area if they wander too far, meaning luring to the corner is now impossible. In theory, heroes that are placed centrally now can be just as effective, if not more effective than a clan castle. Although a clan castle filled with wizards can be devastating to an attacker, most experienced attackers will lure them before attacking. Since the heroes cannot be lured far, they will either choose to ignore them and hope they do not cause too much damage, or merely skip you. Although, placing them centrally has its downsides. If you are as active as myself in farming that gold, then they will be constantly being used to attack, therefore may not be alive to defend most of the time. If they are placed centrally, then it is basically two "dead" squares, in the sense that they are useless when being attacked. Another downside is that they will only be much more effective against certain armies. Hog and balloon attacks will fear central heroes, although any variation of the GoWi or other attacks will be better equipped to deal with your heroes.

The second change is the change to their abilities. The king is now known as the "tank" whereas the queen is the "damage". Their abilities are now more powerful, summoning more units, but there is another change that allows them to be used much more effectively in battle. The king, when the ability is active, now does less damage, but recovers health, allowing him to be a greater tank to your fellow troops. The queen, when her ability is active, still goes invisible, but also recovers health and gains a massive damage increase. Both these changes will allow you to use them effectively during battle and could be the difference.

I didn't feel the need to touch upon any of the other updates as most are self explanatory. Stronger pekkas, stronger teslas, weaker multi-infernos and a stronger jump spell which is useless to most attackers anyway.

Comment below with any questions or tips below,

Thanks

    Jump spells aren't important? They are key in GoWiWi and GoWiPe!

    This isn't really a guide, and I don't understand the purpose of it being here. You could have just gone to the Clash of Clans forums and read the Sneak Peek thread. Or you could have started Clash of Clans, and went to the news section, located in settings... There's also a bunch of YouTubers explaining the Sneak Peeks as well... Not trying to hate or anything but I just don't think this guide is helpful. Thank you for taking the time out to make this guide none-the-less. :)

    someone obviously doesn't use the jump spell if they wright it off so easily, for it much improved and a big asset on the battle field now as you can use it to get troops to go directly for the heroes and in most cases they are then right by the town hall

    @fatninja it depends on his level of course but at lvl25 he regains 1063 health which is a bit more than what they took away but yes waiting till last minute may not be the most effective way to use his ability.

    I just thought i should point out that the king does not recover very much health so do not wait until the last minute to use his ability anyways that is all :)
