Rage Vial
"Casts Rage on the Barbarian King"

Summary

  • The Rage Vial is a piece of Hero Equipment for the Barbarian King. It is one of the two Hero Equipment that he starts with, the other being the Barbarian Puppet.
  • The Rage Vial enrages the Barbarian King when he uses his ability. During this rage, the Barbarian King deals extra damage and moves faster.
  • In addition to the ability, the Rage Vial grants additional damage per second to the Barbarian King, and increases the amount of health he recovers when using the ability.

Strategies

Offensive Strategy

  • The Rage Vial is the most effective means of increasing the Barbarian King's damage, since the Rage Spell has halved effects on him, meaning that it can only grant a 90% damage increase at best (the Grand Warden's Rage Gem has an even lower damage increase).
  • The Rage Vial is also the most effective means of boosting his speed since the Haste Spell's speed buff is likewise halved on him.
  • Combining the Rage Vial with the Vampstache can be useful to maximise the damage dealt during the ability, since the Barbarian King's attack speed is passively increased while equipping the Vampstache. However, a situationally more effective equipment to do this with is the Giant Gauntlet, which allows the King to do considerable area damage, hitting multiple targets at once.
  • Pairing the Rage Vial with Earthquake Boots is a potentially viable strategy, since the earthquake will destroy Walls when the ability is used, possibly opening up a compartment for the Barbarian King to charge through.
  • The Rage Vial Pairs Brilliantly with the Giant Gauntlet: The damage reduction as well as the High Damage increase and the Splash, makes the Barbarian king a very strong attacker, and can tear down compartments with ease, as well as being extremely effective tackling high-DPS compartments.

Defensive Strategy

  • Separate key defenses into separate compartments to minimise the possibility of the Barbarian King wreaking havoc during the ability. Due to his very fast movement speed and high damage during the ability, it is a likelihood that entire compartments can be destroyed single-handedly by the King.
  • Defending troops, Heroes and Skeleton Traps can be an effective means of stalling the Barbarian King; even though he can cut through them very quickly, some of the ability duration will be lost in doing so. However, Barbarian Kings equipping the Giant Gauntlet may defeat them quicker due to its AoE damage.

Equipment Migration

When the Hero Equipment update was released, players' starting Hero Equipment was leveled up for free, without requiring the appropriate Blacksmith level, so that Heroes' capabilities remained roughly the same before and after the update. The level of Hero Equipment obtained from this process depended on the player's Hero level, and is archived in this table below.

History

Date Description
December 12, 2023 Added the Rage Vial, separated from the original Iron Fist ability of the Barbarian King.
February 27, 2024 Movement speed is now written as a movement speed increase, and is now considered a buff instead of overwriting the Barbarian King's movement speed, stacking as buffs do (i.e. best buff is used) instead of stacking fully.
