Skeleton (1 Elixir Cost)
- 1 elixir Skeletons are rarely used, but can be very powerful if used effectively. They are essentially used for only 1 purpose: to distract troops away from the tower. When playing 1 elixir skeletons, you should almost always do so on defense in the middle of your side of the arena. Watch out for splash damage from Wizards, Bombers, and Baby Dragons as they will one-shot your skeletons. Skeletons are also a great counter for Prince if played in the right place as they will distract him for a while and deal enough damage for your tower to take him out quickly. They can also be used in a pinch to deal damage to a Hog Rider. Unless there are a lot of other juicy troops around the Skeletons, it’s usually not worth it to waste an Arrows or Fireball on them.
