Grand Warden Info

"The Grand Warden is a powerful master of magic who supports your attacking troops with blasts from his magic staff. He can walk over walls or fly high with air troops so can help any attacking army. On defense he turns into a powerful tower."

Summary

  • The Grand Warden is a single target unit unlocked at Town Hall level 11. He is the third hero in the game, being weak in physical strength and self-defense due to his low health and relatively low damage, but he makes up for it with his long range and supporting abilities.
  • He is automatically summoned once the Grand Warden Altar is constructed, which costs 1,000,000 Elixir. Uniquely for Heroes in the Home Village, he is upgraded with Elixir instead of Dark Elixir.
  • He can be set to Air or Ground mode; he flies in Air Mode and walks in Ground Mode.
    • He can bypass Walls regardless of the mode he is set to; however, he will attack a Wall if the majority of your nearby housing space is doing so as well.
  • Like the other heroes, the Grand Warden only needs to be summoned once, but he will have to spend some time regenerating his health if he is damaged when attacking an enemy village. If you attack a village while their Grand Warden is still regenerating, the Altar will be empty and the Grand Warden will not defend.
    • Like other Heroes, he is not upgraded in the Laboratory but rather upgraded with a Builder.
  • Hero regeneration in the Home Village uses an "extra life" system: when fully regenerated, the Grand Warden has two "life bars", each with health equal to his maximum hitpoints. The first life bar is represented by the bar visible next to the Warden's level, with the second (the "extra life") represented by a heart placed at the end of the first life bar, with a "+1" when it is full.
    • Any damage taken by the Grand Warden when attacking is first subtracted from the extra life bar, with the regular life bar only being reduced when the extra life bar is fully depleted. If the Grand Warden is defeated, a full life bar will be depleted; in particular, if the extra life bar is full when this occurs, it will be completely depleted without affecting the regular life bar. If the Grand Warden is damaged or defeated when defending, the life bars will be completely unaffected.
    • Both the regular life bar and the extra life regenerate at the same rate, with the regular life bar regenerating fully before the extra life bar regenerates. The regeneration time listed in-game is the time taken for one of the two life bars to regenerate, meaning the time taken to regenerate both life bars after both have been emptied is twice the regeneration time.
    • For the Warden to participate in battle, the regular life bar must be full. If the regular life bar is not full after a battle, the Grand Warden will have to sleep for a period to regenerate the regular life bar before he can be used for battle, proportional to the amount of missing health on the regular life bar.
    • Hero regeneration after a Multiplayer Battle starts as soon as the player starts to search for a Multiplayer opponent. So, if the player spent some time searching for an opponent to attack before completing an attack, part of the regeneration will be completed by the time the player returns to their village. However, if the player cancels the attack by pressing "End Battle" before completing an attack, the regeneration will be reset. This effect is more noticeable in the highest leagues below legend where a significant amount of time can be spent searching for such opponents.
  • As a Hero, the Grand Warden has an ability that can be used once per battle which allows him to regenerate some of his health, and the amount increases at every fifth level. The Hero Equipments that he wields may add additional effects to the ability or a unique passive effect, on top of various passive stats increase.
    • When unlocked, he starts with the Eternal Tome and Life Gem.
      • Eternal Tome grants the ability to make all attacking units in his radius invincible for a short period of time. It does not have any passive stat increase.
      • Life Gem passively increases the health and max health of other attacking units within his radius by a percentage of their max health up to a cap. It gives a passive increase to damage and max health.
  • Upgrading the Blacksmith to level 4 and 6 unlocks the Rage Gem and Healing Tome respectively.
      • Rage Gem passively increases the damage or healing of other attacking units within his radius by a percentage. It gives a passive increase to damage and attack speed.
      • Healing Tome grants the ability periodic healing to himself and all units within his radius and a vastly increased health regeneration. It gives a passive increase to max health.
    • Additionally, there are Epic rarity equipment which can be purchased with event medals during certain events or gem with the Trader when available.
      • Fireball grants the ability to throw a fireball at the nearest defense, dealing massive damage within a large radius. It gives a passive increase to damage.
  • If the ability has not been used before the Grand Warden is about to be defeated, it will by default automatically activate. However, this feature can be toggled off in the settings (by turning off "Automatically use Hero Abilities on KO").
    • This ability can still activate even if the Warden would be one-shot by an attack (such as by a Seeking Air Mine); the Warden will activate his ability and survive with 1 hitpoint.
  • When defending an enemy attack, he will turn into a statue and cast attacks on units in his range. If he is damaged or destroyed on defense, he does not need to regenerate health afterwards.
  • The Grand Warden will attack the building being attacked by the highest number/troop space troop and will continue to attack that building until it is destroyed.

Strategies

Offensive Strategy

  • The four Home Village Heroes serve different roles in raids. The Barbarian King is the tank specialist, while the Archer Queen is the damage specialist, the Grand Warden is the support specialist and the Royal Champion is the defense specialist.
  • Because of the Grand Warden's low health and low damage, he is more suited to support than leading an attack. Have tank units such as Giants, Golems or the Barbarian King to keep him safe from defenses. The Grand Warden can help them in return with his passive abilities.
  • Use the Grand Warden in Air Mode if you are using an air attack so he does not take damage from ground defenses (as they are not distracted by other troops) and Ground Mode when using a ground army as he will not be targeted by the Air Defenses.
    • Only set him to Air Mode if you are using an air attack, as, without distraction troops, he can easily be killed or otherwise heavily damaged by Air Defenses and Seeking Air Mines.
    • If using the Air Mode Warden alone (as a niche to evade heavy ground defenses, for example), it is recommended to deploy Balloons near the Warden to distract any Seeking Air Mines and make sure that none of the traps will hit the Warden. Relative level Seeking Air Mines will kill the Grand Warden, unless he is at least level 37 for Town Hall 12 when the Seeking Air Mine is at level 3, or level 49 for Town Hall 13 when the trap is level 4. However, be careful of level 5 Seeking Air Mines, as they will defeat him instantly at any level!
      • However, a level 6 Seeking Air Mine leaves the level 40 Grand Warden with the maxed out Life Gem and Healing Tome with 30 exactly hitpoints remaining.
  • Use the Eternal Tome ability near the core so your troops can get through the core, where the most damage usually is. Against a level 5 Giga Tesla or a Giga Inferno, it may be useful to save the ability specifically for the explosion when the Town Hall is destroyed, as it does severe damage.
    • Alternatively, it can be better to use it early, such as if high damaging defenses are situated nearer the outside of a base, or when your main army is able to split up.
  • The Grand Warden goes where other troops go, so he does not need funneling. However, the other troops need to be funneled.
  • He will follow the troop with the highest housing space or the largest mass of troops, so bunching up troops with the Grand Warden is crucial to getting the most out of his abilities.
    • However, do not bunch them up too tightly, as his aura is large and the troops will take a lot of splash damage from other defenses if they are too bunched up.
  • When equipped, the Grand Warden's Life Gem is most effective on troops with moderate amounts of health, such as the Balloon or Miner. He will be able to grant a sizable health increase to these troops that is close to the maximum increase allowed by his ability (or if this increase is the maximum allowed, then the health increase is still significant on these troops). The Life Gem is significantly less effective on low-hitpoint troops such as Minions, as they only gain a tiny proportion of health from his Life Gem. It is also somewhat limiting to high-hitpoint troops such as the Golem, as its health increase is well over the maximum allowed. Additionally, since they already have high hitpoints themselves, the extra hitpoints are usually not necessary.
    • When using high-hitpoint troops, it is best to use the Apprentice Warden instead of the Life Gem, since the Apprentice Warden does not have any health limit cap, which can increase bigger troops' health significantly, and the Life Gem will be replaced by either the Rage Gem, Healing Tome or Fireball.
  • The Grand Warden has the longest range of any troop or hero in the game. He can outrange the Wizard Tower, Bomb Tower, Archer Tower on Fast Attack mode, or Hidden Tesla.
    • The Super Archer has a projectile range of 12, but its targeting range is only 6.
  • If the Grand Warden is positioned correctly, he can defeat an enemy Barbarian King and even an Archer Queen without being attacked. In the case of an Archer Queen, it is substantially harder to pull off, as she has a larger attack radius, has a faster movement speed, and can attack from far away unlike the King.
  • When upgraded to a high level, the Grand Warden can be used with Healers to perform a Warden Walk, which is similar to a Queen Walk in terms of utility. Compared to a Queen Walk, his longer range allows him to snipe buildings from a longer distance, meaning that the Warden Walk is generally safer, but his lower damage output means it will take longer to create an effective funnel or destroy the targeted buildings.
    • If the Grand Warden has the Rage Gem, he will be able to destroy buildings faster, making Warden Walks faster.
    • His AI (which makes him follow troops if they are close enough) can be exploited to help funnel him in a particular direction, which can be useful for the objectives of the Warden Walk. For example, deploying a few Balloons against a defense can coerce him to follow the Balloons in attacking that defense. You can also do this to convert a Warden Walk into a smash-style attack (which will be supported by the Warden and Healers) by simply deploying your main force in the path of the walk.
    • When set to Air Mode, if you see a Seeking Air Mine coming towards the Grand Warden, activate his Eternal Tome ability if you still have it. If you react quickly enough, he will be able to avoid all damage; failing to do so will mean severe damage, and in most cases automatically trigger the ability anyway (if the "Automatically use Hero Abilities on KO" setting is turned on), but the Warden will be reduced to 1 HP and be extremely vulnerable, leaving you at a disadvantage, especially if he does not have the Eternal Tome equipped.
  • The Grand Warden has many viable Pet choices that work well with him.
    • The Electro Owl is an excellent fit for the Grand Warden, especially if using air mode. Not only does the Owl provide additional damage that nearly matches his own, the Owl is the only aerial Pet that can accompany the Warden without him being knocked out, thus behaving like an extra troop to protect him. In ground mode, the Owl's additional damage can greatly speed up Warden Walks, and unlike grounded Pets, does not risk pulling the Healers away from the Warden.
    • The Poison Lizard is an alternative for damage at Town Hall 15, with its DPS being focused on a single target, as opposed to the Owl; it can also assist the Warden against enemy troops.
    • For additional support utility, Frosty can be paired with the Warden to slow defenses down. The Warden often being in the backline combines with Frosty's targeting AI to keep Frosty himself in the backlines, which enhances his survivability as compared to pairing him with other Heroes.
    • The Unicorn can heal the Warden effectively, including during a Warden Walk, due to it being able to keep pace with the Warden easily. Although most often paired with the Archer Queen, the Unicorn's pairing with the Warden can be considered if the Queen should be unavailable or require a different Pet.
    • The Diggy can be used to stun defenses when the army targets them, increasing the chances of a successful attack, but only if the main army he follows targets the defenses, especially Root Riders.
  • There are many good Hero Equipment options for the Grand Warden.
    • Eternal Tome and Healing Tome (or Double Tome) for some guaranteed healing during the invincibility, best used on Super Hog Riders and Root Riders.
    • Eternal Tome and Rage Gem allows lots of units to deal high damage against the core of the base, especially when using a Smash-style attack.
    • Eternal Tome and Fireball for high destruction and invincibility used for Super Archer Blimps.
    • Rage Gem and Healing Tome can get high damage and healing at the same time, increasing survivability and damage potential, but lacks the invincibility.
    • Rage Gem and Fireball to go all in for damage, used for Warden Charges.

Defensive Strategy

  • To defend against an enemy Grand Warden, make sure you set your Inferno Towers to multi-target, as he is often behind other troops so few defenses can hit him. At high levels, Scattershots can be particularly effective due to their knack for damaging units behind the primary target.
  • Placing the Grand Warden near the other Heroes and the Clan Castle will be quite beneficial for defense, as the heroes and Clan Castle troops will have a great hitpoint increase.
  • The Grand Warden in defense mode will not be targeted by a Headhunter, due to him being considered a defensive building. It does make him vulnerable to troops that prioritise defenses.

    • Removed the Life Aura from the defensive Warden.
    • Added the health recovery for the Grand Warden. (Before the Th16 update, he did not have any.)
    • Reduced upgrade costs and times across all pre-existing levels (except for level 1):
      • Levels 2-7 and 56-65 received cost reductions.
      • Levels 8-55 received both time and cost reductions.
    • Added Hero Equipment for the Grand Warden, separating his abilities into the Life Gem and the Eternal Tome.
      • Because the Life Gem grants passive stat boosts, the Grand Warden's damage per second and hitpoints were reduced at all levels. The level of Life Gem and Eternal Tome given to players varied depending on the Grand Warden level they had at the time of the update.

Hero Skins

Skin Availability

Below is a table that lists all Hero skins for the Grand Warden and the month in which they were available, in chronological order. Skins are divided into three classes:

  • Gold denotes a skin that was featured as a Gold Pass skin in Season Challenges.
    • All Hero Skins from the Gold Pass since April 2023 have been available as the first reward on the Gold track.
    • Prior to this, they have all been the last reward on the Gold track unless specified.
    • All Gold skins are available permanently for purchase at a price of 1,500 Gems exactly a year after the skin was originally offered in the Gold Pass.
  • Standard and Legendary denotes skins not available from the Gold Pass that were available only through a special offer or event.
    • Unless otherwise stated in the notes, these skins' special offers were available in the season listed, and cost the equivalent of $3.99 USD for Standard skins, or $9.99 USD for Legendary skins. The notes section may also include additional context of an offer.

Key for highlighted entries:

  • Entries that are highlighted denote that the skin is available in the current Season Challenges season.
  • Entries marked with a Coathanger Coathanger denote a Standard or Legendary skin that is permanently available for re-purchase in the cosmetics tab at the original price when the skin was originally offered.

Trivia

  • Before he had a 3D skin, his book resembled a Book of Everything.
  • The tip of Clockwork Warden's staff looks similar to a level 7 Laboratory that is from the top and level 7 Hidden Tesla from the top.
  • The Gladiator Warden skin looks to be based off of the Roman king of the gods and god of lightning, Jupiter.
  • The Pirate Warden skin is based of off the Barbary pirates according to a post by Darian, the Supercell community manager.
  • If the Grand Warden is defeated while wearing the Pirate skin, there will be parrots spinning on his head instead of stars like other Heroes.
  • The Jungle Warden skin was added after the Epic Jungle Scenery was added that featured a Jungle Warden statue.
  • The Grand Warden is the last Hero to have a Winter-themed skin which is the Warden of the North skin.
  • The Warden of the North skin is the only Hero skin which its hero name (Warden) is on the front but not on the back (like "Ice Queen").
  • Although the Party Warden appears in the 9th Clashiverary loading screen, he does not seem to appear in the 9th Clashiversary Scenery.
  • The Grand Warden's Jungle Warden skin appears to not have any hair, or even a face, whatsoever when viewed from behind.
  • Before Hero Skins were added, the Grand Warden had a different appearance as well as an upgrade difference. He had less facial hair, antlers and a different book cover.
    • Initially, he had purple facial hair. He wore white and purple robes along with a short cape. His eyes were of different color, one was white with a little pupil and the other was a normal one with a blue iris. There was a gold trim on his collar at the neck and he wore a white crown-like decoration on his head. He also held a thick book and a long wooden staff with a magical crystal held on top.
    • At level 10, his white antler crown became golden.
    • Before the Grand Warden was converted into a 3D model, the Grand Warden's book and staff switched arms when he changed direction. When the Grand Warden fell in battle, he dropped his staff but held on to his book.
  • The Grand Warden of the versions before the update of June 2019 bore a great resemblance to the late television host, Li Yong.
    • Because of this, he is commonly called "(Li) Yong King" among Chinese players.
    • In January 2016, shortly after the Town Hall 11 update, a show "Clash of Clans Players' Ceremony" was held in Beijing, China, with Li Yong as the main host due to this resemblance.

      His book after the update

  • After the update on June 2019, his book cover has a gem instead of the Book of Everything cover.

Comparisons

  • He is the only unit in the game that can be changed to an air or ground unit.
  • He is the only unit in the entire game that can behave as both a troop (attacking) and a building (defending). Thus, the following interactions occur on defense:
    • It is only possible to destroy his Altar with a single Lightning Spell only if he is not guarding (and thus his Altar will be empty.)
    • Consequently, he is the only Hero to be damaged by Earthquake Spells and not by Poison Spells when defending.
    • He is the only Hero to not display his Hero Skin whenever he is defending.
  • The Grand Warden is one of the few units that can be healed by a Healer while attacking an Air Defense without the Air Defense being able to attack the Healer. The others units capable of doing this are the Archer Queen and the Super Archer.
  • He is the only Hero that can be killed in one hit by a trap (when in Air Mode via a Seeking Air Mine, due to his low amount of HP and the high damage from the trap).
  • The Grand Warden is one of the five troops partly associated with Wizards, including the Super Wizard, Ice Wizard, Party Wizard, and Electrofire Wizard.
  • The Grand Warden is one of the 13 units to appear in a Scenery, the others being the Barbarian, Goblin, Balloon, Hog Rider, Barbarian King, P.E.K.K.A, Baby Dragon, Skeleton, Archer Queen, Dragon Rider, Cannon Cart, and Party Wizard. In his case, he appears in the Pirate Scenery (as Clockwork Warden), and the Epic Jungle Scenery (as Jungle Warden).
  • He is the only Hero that appears to be based on more than one unit, particularly the Healer and the Wizard, because of his use of magic and ability to heal friendly units.
  • The Grand Warden is one of the seven units that can bypass Walls, the other ones being the Royal Champion, Headhunter, Hog Rider, Super Hog Rider, and Apprentice Warden. The Grand Warden may still attack them directly (some air units, such as the Balloon, are able to damage Walls indirectly through splash damage when attacking another target).
  • The Grand Warden is the only Hero currently able to equip two passive Hero Equipment, if he equips both the Life Gem and the Rage Gem.
  • Since the addition of the Hog Rider Puppet, the Grand Warden is the only Hero that cannot summon any units to aid him in battle.
