clash royale shocktober

October 2019 update! Wondering what’s new? New classic decks, Shocktober, new card Elixir Golem, many balance changes and more are waiting for you!

With the October update, the new season will begin. The new season, of course, means new feasts visually. However, I would say that a few new features have been added to the game. Especially for players who prefer to buy Pass Royale, these features will be very useful. There are interesting things in terms of balance changes.

New Card: Elixir Golem

A new card has been added to the game. Its functions looks a bit like a Golem card. A card that can be costly even if the cost of use seems low. Therefore, it is possible to say that those who make the moves correctly will get an advantage. Below you can see the features of this card. Check out this YouTube video to watch Elixir Golem’s introduction video.

Balance Changes (October 2019)

I don’t know what they want from Snowball. I think it’s completely ineffective now. Witch balance was quite interesting. I think there will be an increase in use. Wall Breakers was absolutely necessary because it did not seem very handy at cost. I’m pretty indecisive about Hunter, Fisherman and Night Witch balance changes.

  • Witch (Balance)
    • Damage: +220%
    • Hit Points: -12%
    • Hit Speed: -40%
    • Splash: -45%
    • Spawning Skeleton Amount: 3 -> 4
    • Skeleton Spawn Time: 5s -> 7s
    • Spawning Skeletons Upon Death: 3 -> 0
  • Night Witch (Buff)
    • Spawning Skeletons Upon Death: 2 -> 4
  • Wall Breakers (Buff)
    • Elixir: 3 -> 2
    • Damage: -10%
    • Mass: +100%
  • Hunter (Buff)
    • Damage: +2%
  • Fisherman (Nerf)
    • Damage: -6%
    • Hit Points: -5%
  • Snowball (Nerf)
    • Knock Back: -17%

New Classic Decks (October 2019)

If you follow my shares, the new classic decks will look familiar to you. We will now use them in classic deck matches in Clan Wars collection day. I’d say the decks are pretty good. For more information on classic decks, see the Classic Decks (October 2019) section. There you can find some more details about the decks.

  • Pigs on Parade – 3.4 Average Elixir
  • Ram Rushers – 3.1 Average Elixir
    • Win Condition: Ram Rider
  • Prince Bait – 3.8 Average Elixir
  • Fishin’ for Loons – 3.3 Average Elixir
  • Cold Dead Hands – 3.8 Average Elixir
  • Golem Beatdown – 4.3 Average Elixir

I hope you like the October 2019 update. I suggest you take a good look at the balance changes before entering the ladder games. Before you start collecting cards for Clan Wars, I recommend you to learn more about classic decks. I hope it’s a season where you’ve won plenty of trophies and plenty of prizes. Have fun!
