The first spell one will encounter in Clash of Clans is the lightning spell. It is used to target an area of the enemy base destroying all the buildings and troops within the radius. The damage vary according the to level.
When someone reached town hall 7 and unlocked the dragon on the barracks, three lighting spells will guarantee him or her to win an easy 3-stars during clan wars. The lightning spell potions are deployed to one of the air defenses of the opponents leaving only one air defense on the base. That situation will give an army of nine to ten dragons to completely destroy the base.
As the player reaches beyond town hall 7, lighting spells seems to be a bit cheeky. Sometimes it is useless. Traditionally, high level players reserve a lighting spell to kill the troops inside the clan castle instantly. But when the poison spell arrived, the need of the lightning spell as a crowd control seems to be gone to oblivion.
Still, the developers of the game managed to improve the spell to level 7. Level 6 upgrade of the spell moves down to TH 9. The update also notes that the damage of level 5 and level 6 lightning spells are boosted.
Another interesting feature added to the spell is the precise accuracy of its bolt patterns. According to some reviews, because the pattern is improved, more damage is deal. However, 2 level 7 lightning spells cannot still destroy a level 10 air defense. Players are still doubtful whether the new upgrade for the lightning spell is a major factor that changes the gameplay.
