dont forget, the lightning spell does area damage dealing small damage to all buildings around
That is indeed true, but:
How is that relevant to how many lightning spells it takes destroy a level 8 air defense?
You realize this thread is over seven months old, correct? Why are you adding to it?
i think what he means is that not all 1,170 damage will be focused on that one air defense point where you tapped. it will be slightly distributed to other buildings on the side. it will take 3 lvl 5 lightning spells to get rid of a maxed out air defense.
In my experience that's not the case. The point at which you click your lightning spell will indeed receive the full damage of the spell, so assuming you click the dead center of the air defense, 3 level 4 spells should be sufficient. If you are off by even a little bit, you probably won't destroy it.
Apologies for necro but didnt want to start whole new thread for same thing...Why fail? • Target: Level 5 (990hp)• Used 3 Lightning spells, Level 3 (360 damage = 1080)• I zoomed all the way in to ensure dead center contact, even keptmy eye on the landing graphic and they landed right on the missile• I waited 1 sec in between hits to ensure no possible wasted overlap Not sure what other variables there could be???
I'm been destroying tons of AD with lightnings (for dragon rush) and 3 level4 spells ALWAYS did the job. There is no need for pause between the spells - you can do a tripple-click to drop them all within half a second. Also, no need for zooming, if you hit within the 3x3 AD area it will be destroyed (tested up to level 6 ADs).
