Guards Card is the new Epic Card in Clash Royale, that’s why I decided to make a small page to give you the basic information as well as tips for using it! Thanks Orange Juice for sharing these tips!
Clash Royale Guards
Guards are beefed up Skeletons and you can find them in Royal Arena. Each Guard has a shield, which is pretty similar to Dark Prince’s Shield. That shield always can tank the first hit no matter how much damage it is. However, underneath that shield, they are very similar to Skeletons in damage, health and movement speed.
The Guard can tank a lot of shots from hard hitters. Pulling an unsupported P.E.K.K.A actually prevents her from even touching your Tower. P.E.K.K.A needs to attack each Skeleton twice. That’s an insane positive Elixir trade. Against an opponent using Hog Zap, the Zap won’t be able to 1 shot the Guards.
Guards can be also used to counter Sparky. By using their shield, Guards can survive the first shoot from the Sparky and destroy it before it hits the second time.
They don’t work well against splash damaging units. Conversely, on your side of the river, with good surround technique, the Guards will destroy the splash units and survive for a counter push. Read more about this trick at here!
The Fire Spirits are perfect for taking out the Guards. The first Spirit does massive damage to the shield and the second Spirit knocks down the shield and the third one goes in for the fatality.
Damage per second
Okay so that’s all I can say about the Guards so far. I hope you can level them up and use them soon! Don’t hesitate to share If you have any advice guys!
