Clash of Clans Goblin King

Goblins are the first troops that are shown as invaders at Town hall level 1. According to clash of clans fan fiction, these goblins were sent by the goblin king to attack your village.

The story of the goblin king was shared on supercell forums where it went viral. Ever since then fans are demanding a goblin king character in the Clash of Clans universe. Supercell is yet to formally introduce a goblin king.

However, during the 2020 Halloween update, COC specifically launched a Goblin king skin for the barbarian king. It was available to purchase for 1500 gems. Many clashes of clans players bought the skin and shared the visuals of Goblin king on youtube, Reddit, and quora.

As of now, there is no Goblin king skin available but we are hoping that Supercell will include this character from COC folklore in their goblin missions.

Goblin Donation – As Defending Castle Troop

Goblins are among the worst defending troops in Clash of clans. The main purpose of these pesky creatures is to loot resources. They are neither made for defending your village nor for attacking enemy troops.

Do not donate goblins in clan castles, especially during clan war leagues. A max-level clan castle can hold 45 units of troops. However, 45 goblins can be easily wiped out with one poison spell even before they reach enemy units.

Donating Goblin – As Attacking Castle Troop

If you want to take goblins on the attack as your clan castle unit then you have to follow certain rules. This can help you win atleast 1 star.

First of all, prefer sneaky goblins over goblins as sneaky goblins have higher DPS and they stay hidden for four seconds.

Secondly, take a sneaky goblin in a siege machine that can launch them at the center of the base. This way the sneaky goblins will directly attack the town hall and before any defense reacts they would have already done their job.

So if you are unsure of getting any star against a higher level town hall then follow the strategy above and you will be guaranteed to get one star.

Which Spell Should I Use with Goblins?

Easy – JUMP Spell. Sneaky Goblin and Jump spell is made for each other. The jump spell will help the sneaky goblin to destroy storages that are well protected beyond walls.

Best Attack Strategy and Army Composition For Clash of Clans Goblin

I have mentioned it before – There is no alternative to a mass goblin attack.

You will be wasting your goblin if you are using it in any other way. Your goal should be clear – i.e. to loot millions of gold, elixir, and dark elixir in one hour.

Therefore without any second thought, create a mass sneaky goblin army with jump spells and see your storage getting filled in no time.
