Barbarian King Basic Information

Made available once you build the Barbarian King Altar for 10,000 Dark Elixir, this dominant unit is actually immortal and regenerates health whenever defeated or injured in a fight. The time it takes him to recover depends on the health lost. Obtained at Level 5, the Barbarian King special ability is called Iron Fist. This allows the unit to recover some health, summon Barbarians, and increases his speed and damage.

(In-Game Description)

“The Barbarian King is the toughest and meanest barbarian in all the realm, whose appetite for Dark Elixir has caused him to grow to a giant size. He can attack enemy villages or guard your village.”

Note: Barbarian King’s Iron Fist does not stack with Rage Spell and does affect nearby Barbarians.

Barbarian King Sleep & Guard Modes

The Barbarian King can also be set to two modes: “Sleep” or “Guard”. The former lets him recover help while ignoring enemy attacks while the latter sets him to attack any attackers that come near the Altar.

Barbarian King Levels

Dark Elixir is required for all Barbarian King upgrades. With each increased level this unit does more damage and has more hit points, but it also takes more time to regenerate. The Barbarian King also gains the Iron Fist ability at Level 5. This ability becomes more effective every 5 levels: Level 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40.
