"This colossal menace soaks up huge amounts of damage and bashes everything in his path. He guards his territory fiercely when defending, and can launch into a devastating rage when attacking once his Iron Fist ability is unlocked!"

  • Summary
    • The Barbarian King Altar is basically an Army Camp/Laboratory for the Barbarian King. When he isn't engaged in battle, the Barbarian King can be seen pacing around the Altar, or sleeping on top of it to regenerate health or set to Sleep.
    • You need a free Builder and 10,000 Dark Elixir to build the Altar. Once the Altar has been placed, the Barbarian King is summoned immediately. The placement of the Altar is instantaneous and no additional resources are required to summon the Barbarian King.
    • If you wish to see the Barbarian King's targeting range, tap either on him or on his Altar.

  • Trivia
    • It was added with the 10th January 2013 Hero update. 
    • Although the Altar itself can not be upgraded, the Barbarian King can be upgraded to level 75.
    • The Builder has his own animation for upgrading the Heroes. He forms some gold in a furnace near the Altar, and hits it with his hammer on an anvil, despite the altar being made of stone.
    • There are a few bones on the Altar, along with a sword.
    • The Altar itself can be destroyed with one Lightning Spell that is at least level 5, because of its low hitpoints.
