Strategy #1; Close Attack
Troop Composition: 3s2p1mh

  • Choose attack vector with most Mana Portals
  • Drop dragon as distraction
  • Drop all troops tightly packed & apply Wolfpack to all troops
  • Use Chilling Howl on splash damage defenses such as Spell Tower, Catapult, and Arrow Launcher
  • Give preference to covering defenses but apply to front line troops simultaneously if you can
  • If you find yourself with lots of mana use Bloodthirst otherwise keep applying Howl
  • Win… easy huh?
