“ Deals high damage to a small area. Looks really awesome doing it. Reduced damage to Crown Towers.”
The Rocket is unlocked from the Builders Workshop and incinerates units in a small area. It has a long travel time which can make it hard to use.
Strategies for the Rocket
The Rocket is the ultimate risk/ reward spell. While can take care of beefy supports like the Witch or Executioner, it’s long travel time makes it so that you need to predict where units are going after you fire it.
At high-level play, the Rocket can also be used to take towers if one is able to play good enough defense. This strategy is usually reserved in certain decks and requires one to be extremely confident in their ability to defend.
However, if you are able to make a large positive trade again your opponent’s win condition it can be smart to send out a Rocket if you don’t have a good play. You need to be sure that your opponent won’t be able to rush you after this, so make sure you see their whole deck.
Best Rocket Decks
The Rocket does excellent against decks that aren’t able to get consistent damage, which gives you plenty of time for you to whittle their tower down. Quick cycle decks with cards like Hog Rider and Miner can be tough.
