At Town Hall 7, you probably meet the first dark troop — the minions. We are not talking about a stupid yellow creature but a small terror on the skies.
Honestly, there is nothing very spectacular about the minions. They are the weakest object on the air — easily obliterated by an air bomb. They are like archers with wings on a gargoyle mask. I don’t even use them often.
Some players mix them with a dragon raid. Most of the clashers though use minions as a necessary component of a LAVALOONION (Lava Hounds + Balloons + Minions) attack. In in powerful type of attack, minions acts as cleaners of the remaining neutral buildings since Balloons and Lava Hounds prioritizes defenses. However, during the advent of the Air Sweeper, minions became unpopular during air raids. LAVALOONION attacks used to be the ultimate three star assault against a TH 10 war base.
In fairness, despite the lowly reputation of the minion, it still prevail as one of the disposable and annoying troop on the air. It can be used to clear out air mines. And now, their latest look is so bad ass. I must admit that the design aced it in mixing the right contrast combination of purple and orange.
Comparing it to the previous versions:
- Level 1 = 35 Damage per second : 55 HP
- Level 2 = 38 Damage per second : 60 HP
- Level 3 = 42 Damage per second : 66 HP
- Level 4 = 46 Damage per second : 72 HP
- Level 5 = 50 Damage per second : 78 HP
- Level 6 = 54 Damage per second : 84 HP
- Level 7 = 57 Damage per second : 90 HP
