GrandWarden Altar info.png

"This veteran battle-scholar seeks out groups of friendly troops to fight behind and boost with his Life Aura and assumes the form of a tower on defense. Attacking, he can walk over walls or fly high, and can make nearby troops immune to damage once his Eternal Tome ability is unlocked!"

  • Summary
    • The Grand Warden Altar is basically a Barracks/Army Camp/Laboratory for the Grand Warden. When he isn't engaging in a battle, the Grand Warden can be seen pacing around his Altar or sleeping on top of it to regenerate health.
    • If you wish to see the Grand Warden's targeting range, tap either on him or on his Altar.
    • You need a free Builder and at least 6,000,000 Elixir to build the Altar. Doing so immediately summons the Grand Warden and enables him to be used at level 1.
    • When under attack, the Grand Warden will quickly return to his altar and turn to a statue that functions as a defense but with his life aura still in effect to friendly Heroes and Clan Castle troops.

  • Trivia
    • It was added with the 10th December 2015 Town Hall 11 update, and confirmed at Clash-Con 2015 on October 24th.
    • It is the only Hero Altar to be purchased with regular Elixir.
    • The Builder has his own animation for upgrading the Heroes' altars. 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.
    • If you drop a Lightning Spell on the Altar that has the Grand Warden on defense (even without deploying any Troops), the Grand Warden will turn into a statue before the Lightning hits and takes the Lightning Spell's damage (this is true even if the Grand Warden has not visibly reached his altar). Since the statue takes the Grand Warden's hitpoints, it can't be destroyed with a single Lightning Spell.
      • If the Grand Warden is not on defense (sleep mode, upgrading or regenerating), Lightning Spells can easily be used to destroy the Altar. If the Lightning Spell is upgraded to level 5 or higher, only one will be required to destroy it; two Lightning Spells are required otherwise.
      • Because the Grand Warden statue behaves like a building, the Warden cannot be damaged by Poison Spells, unlike the Barbarian King, Archer Queen and Royal Champion. It can instead be damaged by Earthquake Spells.
    • The appearance of the Grand Warden's statue does not vary with his skins.
    • By simply tapping the Altar, you are able to view the Grand Warden's DPS, HP, Life Aura ability, upgrade cost, and Ability duration.
    • The Altar is emblazoned with a shield, representing that the Grand Warden is a support troop that shields your main kill force.
    • This Hero Altar has only one layer vertically, just like the Royal Champion's.
    • In the same update that changed the Grand Warden into a 3D model, the altar changed in appearance. Most notably, the shield is turned 90 degrees to the left, and the the groove surrounding the middle is removed.
    • The altar is treated as a Defensive Building if the Grand Warden is able to defend and turns into a statue. Troops with favourite targets as defensive buildings such as Balloons or the Royal Champion will also prioritize the altar.
