    Strategy Guide

    War Cannon
    Description - This terrifying siege weapon slowly blasts away enemy Towers from a great distance, even able to outrange them!

    Strategy Guide - War Cannons are a challenge for even the most seasoned of players. They're best paired with a long-range hero such as Ember however, both will be vulnerable to airborne attacks, so always keep that in mind. War Cannons are special units with the second highest range, which is only beaten by Ember's extended range, making the War Cannon perfect for taking down towers. They also have huge health and damage, but the flip-side to all that health and damage is that they are slow and expensive, but worth every drop of Elixir.

    Due to its slow speed, War Cannons will need supporting units to offer cover while it makes its way toward its target. Strong use of spell support is a good tactic to use with spells like Spikes, Blast, Plague, Freeze, Regeneration, Dragon Flame and Frenzy all being extremely useful. Frenzy, in particular, is best used to support your War Cannon as not only will it boost your War Cannon's Movement Speed and DPS, but it will also give the same boost to any supporting units offering cover fire to Your War Cannon.

    Strengths
    - It's very long range allows the War Cannon to stay out of reach of enemy towers allowing it to attack from afar.
    - Having such high health allows for the War Cannon to reach its intended target as long as it's well protected by supporting units such as the Hunting Party or Sharpshooter. Keeping this tactic in mind a good strategy is to drop the War Cannon near your own Hero Castle to allow yourself time to build up enough Elixir to deploy supporting units.
    - The War Cannon has one of the highest DPS making it one of the best units for tackling Tower and Hero Castles. However, this comes at a cost in movement speed, to counter this weakness a good option is to deploy another slow moving unit such as the Corrupted Knight who will keep pace with the War Cannon and attack any enemy units sent in to attack the War Cannon.

    Weakness
    - War Cannons can´t protect themselves and need support to survive.
    - Their high cost makes it difficult to send in supporting units until your Elixir has partially recharged.
    - Another downside to their slow movement speed is that this gives your enemy plenty of time to counter them, so always try and keep a Blast spell handy.

      Fun Warning:
      -War Cannons are a challenge for even an expert player; best paired with a long range hero, but both are vulnerable to airborne attacks.

      Summary:
      -War cannons are high health, slow speed, long range units; with very slow but high damage units that only attack towers.

      Strength:
      -Very long range allows the War Cannon to stay out of range of enemy towers.
      -Massive health pool allows for the war cannon to endure repetitive bombardments.
      -The perfect long range distraction.

      Weakness:
      -Units
      -Giblin Air Force
      -Valkyrie
      -Warg Pack
      -Goblin Horde
      *Anything that can, together, cause massive damage.

      Hero Abilities:
      -Volley
      -Reserection

      Spells:
      -Plague
      -Spikes
      -Blast
      -Dragon Flame


      Strategy:
      -Strong use of spell support since all units will break support formation and are easily exploitable. Spike Trap, Blast, Plague, Freeze, Healing, Dragon Flame, and Frenzy are all useful. Frenzy is best used to support your War Cannon with units, while boosting the War Cannons movement speed or attack speed.

        I have a love hate with the war cannon and this illustrates exactly why, with the right support and timing it is lethal, without it, it’s a waste of 7 mana.
