Skeleton

Skeleton

Overview[]

"At least we don't have to worry about feeding them."

While they shouldn’t require food, they still take up one space in the Hatchery. Skeletons can be useful as cannon fodder, taking the brunt of room damage or triggering Spring Traps, Boulder Traps, and Chicken Bomb Traps to save your more valuable minions. They are a skeleton after all, I am sure they don’t mind Keeper!

Notes[]

  • Cheap to build and they move fast
  • Best when used in a group. Good at taking out defensive rooms that use a single-target attacks
  • Effective for triggering and wasting Spring Traps and Chicken Bombs
  • Very weak vs Boulder Traps, though good for triggering them on purpose
  • Immune to Poison Traps and Bile Demons attacks
  • Good for taking out Vampires as they cannot be life drained or converted
  • A max of 40 can be summoned, possibly to prevent performance issues if a player could spawn 115 of them
  • Necromancers will raise skeletons from the graves of fallen living minions, friend or foe. Sir Cophogus can also do this between levels 35 and 40
  • The level of raised Skeletons by necromancers and Sir Cophogus are the same level as what you have trained them to
  • Skeletons are often good for killing immortals that don’t have AOE attacks, avoid Horny and Swampus as they have large AOE attacks
