The Dart Goblin has one fastest load-times In Clash Royale, meaning he can lock onto a new target very fast. When left alone, he can deal 400 damage to the Arena Tower. When at 1-shot HP, he still can do 200 damage (2 hits) to the Arena Tower If left alone.

Dart Goblin has an insane attack range, which is just a bit shorter than the Princess, 6.5 tiles, which is similar to the Royal Giant. He can outrange most Towers in Clash Royale, including the Inferno Tower.

At Tournament Standards, he has exact same HP as the Princess. He doesn’t die to Zap but Arrows and The Log.

On defense, with the help of the Arena Tower and his insane attack speed, he can easily deal with these cards: Mega Minion, Skeleton Army, Balloon, Knight, Valkyrie, Musketeer, Fire Spirits, Ice Wizard, Minions, Bomber, Guards, Witch, Mini P.E.K.K.A, Lumberjack, Wizard, Electro Wizard, Sparky.

He is also excellent against Graveyard. If your opponent uses Ice Golem to soak damage for the Graveyard, use your Ice Golem too to distract all of the Skeletons while your Dart Goblin is picking them up one by one.


Dart Goblin + Ice Golem is going to be one of the best combos to deal with Elite Barbarians. Use Ice Golem to kite Elite Barbarians to the opposite lane while your Dart Goblin is hitting them hardly in front of the King’s Tower. If your opponent sends in a huge Elite Barbarians push, you should take a look at this guide for more details!

Dart Goblin is so good in chip cycle deck. Ice Spirit + Dart Goblin can easily deal 1000 damage to the Tower. This is so devastating combo so you will need to react asap If you get attacked by it. However, this combo is very easy to counter.

Ice Spirit is the best counter to Dart Goblin. He tanks 2 hits from the Dart Goblin and freezes it for 1.5s.

Since Dart Goblin can 1 hit Fire Spirit, he is also a great Furnace killer. If your opponent places the Furnace in a bad spot, your Dart Goblin can easily take it out from your side.

Thus, consider place your defensive building 5 tiles from the river.

If your opponent places his defensive Tower 4 tiles from the river, place your Dart Goblin like the gif below so It won’t get hit by the Tower:

However, you will want to place your Dart Goblin like this to bypass the Tesla and hit the Tower:

Tombstone is probably going to vanish from the meta since Dart Goblin + Ice Golem is enough to deal with tons of popular pushes.
