Notes & Strategies

Kobold Trick is a spell best used when its healing is put to full effect. Try to avoid using it until the amount of hitpoints dips below what the spell will restore, as to ensure the power is not used falsely.

Beware the cooldown, as during that time your buildings are vulnerable to burst damage.

Kobold Trick pairs well with Shield Building Card Icon.png Shield Building and Glacier Shell Card Icon.png Glacier Shell. Both of which emphasize defending buildings.

Campaign PvE

Kobold Trick is heavily playstyle dependant but can also be influenced by the map. Typically defensive maps are best to use this one since buildings usually accompany that.

Random PvE

Kobold Trick is usually not needed in rPvE since buildings are not of a major concern. It can be useful in situations where your wells and orbs come under attack, but usually its uncommon to see.


Kobold Trick is a must-have card for any player running a frost orb. Against many destructive burst damage sources like Eruption Card Icon.png Eruption or Enforcer Card Icon.png Enforcer, keeping your buildings hitpoints above certain thresholds is all but a necessity to avoid an irredeemable power loss. Additionally, this spell allows you to delay and hold off an attack longer; letting you regroup your forces to counterattack.

Because it only requires one frost orb, many popular splash decks can incorporate it into their gameplay.


  • Instantly restores health to buildings on-demand.

Kobold Trick can be a critical asset in the defense of Power Wells and Monuments, as many players utilize heavy burst damage tactics to down a well or monument.

  • Costs only 50 power.

Kobold trick is dirt cheap, making it easy to spam.


  • Kobold Trick is ineffective against T3 units.

In T3, where creatures with the capacity to annihilate structures come into play, such as Juggernaut Card Icon.png Juggernaut, and Giant Slayer Card Icon.png Giant Slayer, this spell loses a great deal of effectiveness. It simply cannot keep up.
