Yesterday we got a glimpse of the Grand Warden, the new hero coming in the Clash of Clans (Free) Town Hall 11 Update. However, we only got to see him do his thing on offense; today, we also got to see him on defense. The Warden turns into a statue when he goes into defense as you can see in the video below. As you should know by now, the Grand Warden can go into air or ground mode, and he’ll turn into a statue in both modes. When he turns into a statue, his Life aura will buff the Heroes, the Clan Castle troops, and the Skeleton Trap skeletons around him, which should help strengthen your villages’ defenses considerably. Add to the passive buff (and to the Eternal Tome invincibility aura) the Warden’s own long-range attack, and you can see how he should be an important defense factor. The video also shows him defending on ground mode and his transition from patrol to statue mode.
So, what do you think of the Grand Warden now that we’ve seen all his abilities on both defense and offense? From what I’ve seen and read, most people think he’ll be a pretty substantial threat, but it’s hard to know how everything will work since even in this video we don’t really see him in a fully upgraded Town Hall 11 village. We might get another sneak peek (slightly unclear whether we’ll get another one tomorrow), and it’s likely (but far from certain) that we’ll get the update this week. I’ll keep you informed the moment we have more info about the release day.
