How Lightning Spells Actually Work

Undoubtedly, Lightning Spells are a big part of Clash of Clans as we use them everyday. We use them most for cleaning Clan troops and ravaging Air Defenses but do you know how it actually works? Most players though that It was random, but no…

By understanding how actually they works, you will know when is the best time to use them, how to place them and take their best advantages in your attacks!

We can bring maximum 5 Lightning Spells and 1 Dark Spell into an attack. Every time we drop a lightning spell Lightning Spell, there are 6 lightings in total hit the ground and they have certain patterns. These screenshots will show you how they work:

Note: The first bolt always hit the spot where you drop the spell.

LIGHTNING SPELL PATTERNS

It is not really hard to remember these strike patterns. By remembering them, you can know what is the best place to drop the Lightning Spell. If you use the Lightning Spell as the first drop, it will have pattern like the first screenshot. If you use it as the second spell (Assuming you used the Healing Spell at first), it will be like the second screenshot…

From now, you will never miss a single Clan Castle troop again and by taking this advantage, you can easily take out more than 1 Air Defense.
