Dart Goblin Basic Details, Combos and Strategy

  • Rare – his rare status will make him not too difficult to obtain for Free-To-Play players
  • 3 elixir - Dart Goblin will cost 3 elixir to deploy
  • 1 sec deploy time – this is 2 ½ times faster than spear goblins
  • 6.5 tile range – this is the same range as the Royale Giant meaning he can attack a tower at just one block in front of the bridge. It also means it can effectively combat any defensive structures like bomb and inferno tower without taking any damage.
  • Doesn’t die to zap – this gives him a slight edge over troops like the spear goblins.
  • 400 Tower Damage – if left unattended, dart goblin will chip upward 400 damage before he dies.
  • Arrow and Log Counter – dart goblin doesn’t die to zap but is destroyed by arrows or the log. The log will likely be the best counter as it may throw some chip damage at your opponent’s tower at the same time.
  • Fast Chip Cycle Decks – the Dart Goblin will be a good addition to these kinds of decks.
  • Ice Demon Combo – this is a great partner for the dart goblin. If not countered, the two can deal 1,000 damage to a tower.
  • Defends against slower moving ground troops – Because of his range, the Dart Goblin can take out troops like Mega Minion, Knight or Balloon from a distance if aided by a tower. He can keep Balloon from hitting tower, but there will still be death damage.
