Earthquake Boots
"Causes a powerful earthquake which destroys Walls and damages Buildings"


  • The Earthquake Boots is a piece of Common Hero Equipment for the Barbarian King. It is unlocked when the Blacksmith is completed, requiring Town Hall level 8.
  • The Earthquake Boots enables the Barbarian King to create an earthquake when using his ability. This earthquake instantly destroys Walls and does significant damage to buildings proportional to their maximum hitpoints. A small amount of additional damage, independent of unit hitpoints, is dealt to all ground units in the radius (including troops).
    • The earthquake caused by Earthquake Boots is able to damage resource storages.
  • The Earthquake Boots' effects are reduced against buildings that have already been hit by one or more Earthquake Spells, with the damage reduction dependent on the number of Earthquake Spells already used and scaled similarly. The reverse is also true: Earthquake Spells will have reduced effects against buildings that have been damaged by the Earthquake Boots.
  • In addition to the ability, the Earthquake Boots also increases the damage per second and maximum hitpoints of the Barbarian King when equipped.


Offensive Strategy

  • This can help by breaking compartments for the king and charging in to them; it one-shots any level wall, and cripples anything in its radius. When paired with the Giant Gauntlet, it can destroy entire compartments of key defenses.
  • Sometimes, the ability might allow an early Town Hall weapon activation due to the earthquake, and since it has a larger radius then the Earthquake Spell, many players can activate the weapon early, so be careful.
  • The Earthquake Boots' wall-breaking ability works better on tight bases with lots of compartments than on bases with fewer compartments. However, it should be noted that opening access to a large number of compartments may not always be desirable, and so one's attack plan must factor what the Barbarian King expects to do with this ability.
  • The bonus damage can help tackle small Ground CC troops, and can help destroy the skeletons from the Skeleton Traps.
  • This can also weaken strong defenses in Lower Town Halls, because the damage taken by buildings is greater than Earthquake spells at the lower levels.
  • At higher levels, where bases generally grow larger, getting value out of the ability gets increasingly difficult as the ability's AoE does not grow, meaning that the ability affects a relatively smaller area of the base.

Defensive Strategy

  • Placing separate layers of Walls 7 tiles apart prevents Earthquake Boots from destroying both layers at once if the King is behind both layers. As mentioned above, having fewer compartments in the wall layout reduces the possible value from the ability.
  • Avoid putting powerful buildings together: A Good ability might wipe a lot of these building's HP, which means a lot of value overall from this ability!
