Clash of Clans will soon be getting the brand new Skeleton Spell, which is a new dark spell allowing players to spawn Skeletons anywhere they like. You can use it once you hit Town Hall 9 and it costs one Dark Elixir. It can be levelled all the way up to level 4, and with each upgrade, you’ll see an increase in the number of skeletons.

To get the Skeleton Spell, you’ll need a Level 4 Dark Factory, and it does what it says on the tin: summoning skeletons to do your bidding. As Orange Juice Gaming says in his video below, it’s a spell best suited to luring out enemy troops. They also don’t trigger traps, which is nifty, and will no doubt factor into your strategy when using this spell.

Design & Trend is of the opinion that the skeletons can be “fun for trolling those stuck on lower Town Hall levels”. They aren’t all that effective at demolishing buildings by themselves, but can make excellent diversions. The Skeleton Update will be added to Clash of Clans in the upcoming May Update, which, needless to say, is coming out in May. Are you excited for it? Let us know in the comments below.
