Basic Info

Kobold Trick is a Second-Era spell for the Frost faction. This spell repairs a building instantly when cast upon it, which is far more powerful than it seems.

Because the only source of permanent power loss is through the destruction of a Power Well or Monument, this spell is extremely useful in Player vs Player; where maintaining the survival of your Wells and Monuments is a key aspect of gameplay.

Ability Info

Card Icon Autocast
Repair Building

Instantly repairs a friendly building for 850 / 900 / 1000 / 1100. Reuseable every 10 seconds.

This ability is incredibly useful for any player who orients around buildings. But is also a must-have for anyone running a frost orb in PvP. Being able to instantly restore a huge chunk of hitpoints, often a full health restoration; is impeccable to sustaining your Wells and Monuments when being sieged by the opposing skylord(s).

Tips & Tactics

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 Shield Building and Glacier Shell Card Icon Glacier Shell. Both of which emphasize defending buildings.


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.


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 Eruption or Enforcer Card Icon 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.
