Troop has a significant role in assisting the army to defeat the enemies. Every troop is equipped with unique skills and characteristics. You should learn about the characteristics of each troop so that you know how to use them in the best combination. The following are the 5 best troops in Clash of Clans.
Dragon is able to attack both ground and air units. It can carry out short-range splash damage. They do not target specifically on anything during the attack. However, it will shift its attention to the enemy troops when it becomes aware of them. The dragon will attack the nearest structure after the enemy troops are defeated. It takes twelve dragons to form the best troop in Clash of Clans. Dragons are often deployed with the goal to obtain trophies. They can also be deployed in a war.
P.E.K.K.A. is equipped with the most powerful armor in Elixir based troops. It can carry out the most damage compared to other normal troops. P.E.K.K.A is depicted as a knight in shiny silver armor with two pink horns on the head and arm. P.E.K.K.A is more powerful than a barbarian king. If you deploy a P.E.K.K.A, it will launch its attacks on the nearest building. They will leave the building they are attacking if they or a friendly troop get attacked by an enemy. You can position some units that attack air to protect it.
Wizard is depicted as a magician that wears a hooded cloak with a golden buckle belt on the waist. Wizard can release fireballs or balls of energy that can affect the enemy with high damage. They are equipped with enough health to endure a couple of splash damage attacks. Because Wizard has low hitpoint, you must combine it with another troop. For example, you can deploy giants and healers along with the wizard when you want to destroy the buildings quickly. Both giants and barbarians are suitable to act as the meat shield.
Valkyrie is a fierce woman warrior with red hair and carries a double-bladed axe. She wears a loin cloth and matching boots. Valkyrie can do an extensive damage on heroes and barbarian king. She will get in between 2 buildings and damage 2 buildings at a time. You can put the Valkyrie near the Barbarian King when in a war. Valkyrie will take the initiative to move on to another target after destroying an enemy. You can use the woman warrior as a substitute for P.E.K.K.A. because she is stronger and faster.
- Hog Rider
Hog Rider is a dark-skinned man with mohawk hairstyle and carries a big Warhammer. He is called Hog Rider because he rides on a large flying hog to travel to places. Hog Rider has the ability to jump over a wall no matter how high it is. In a battle, he will put his priority on defensive structures even when under attack. Clan Castle is not a defense to the Hog Rider. Hog Rider has almost the same level of health as a Giant but he can move faster and do more damage. Hog Rider is best used for drawing out Clan Castle troops since they can jump over walls easily and reach the center.
