Possibly the biggest update that Supercell has ever made in Clash of Clans history will most likely be occurring December 10th. Supercell released their final sneak peak at the December or Holiday update on their forum and said, "And that's it, them sneak peeks are over. We aim to go live on Dec 10th- remember, always subject to change..." And so, the warning has gone out to put Town Halls inside of walls by the 10th- a good sign that the roll out of the new upgrade is on its way! This is the latest information on the Clash of Clans December or Holiday Update Release Date with the Third Hero Grand Warden, Town Hall 11, and Eagle Artillery.
The weekend sneak peeks have brought out the introduction of the third hero- who will be called "Grand Warden." The Grand Warden is a magical wizard who can do the same features as the Healers and Wizards, and he can either be set to walk, or set to fly. While set to Ground, he wanders with the other ground troops. When set to fly, he will be able to fly with the dragons and balloons over the walls, and will then only get attacked by Air Defenses, but not Cannons.
The new Hero will be available only after Town Hall 11. The good news for this hero is that he will be able to be bought and upgraded with regular elixir, and not dark elixir like the other two heroes. He will be expensive at 6 million Elixir, but worth it with his abilities. At a fully maxed level 20, he can do 110 Damage per second, but will only have 2000 Hitpoints- which is low compared to other troops and the other Heroes.
What he DOES have is two abilities. He has a Life Aura which is a passive ability (protection), and it is active as long as he is on the battlefield. His Aura is an orange circle around him. Not only does it protect him, but it also gives all troops inside his circle extra health (like the Healers do). It will only protect them as long as they stay within the area where the Aura is active, or until the Grand Warden dies. His active ability is called the Grand Warden Eternal Tome. It can be activated like the other abilities to make all troops within its range invincible from all damage. This can be helpful in situations like attacking higher level bases with multi-target Inferno Towers.
The final Sneak Peek revealed today was the new Eagle Artillery (again, exclusive to the new Town Hall 11). It was revealed on ClashCon, but Supercell has since improved upon the animation, and has given new details. At ClashCon, they showed the Eagle Artillery shooting a single yellow blast of fire, and in their sneak peek today, it rains burning meteors.
The Eagle Artillery will be activated after a certain amount of troops get deployed. It locks into a target and shoots the burning meteors. The lock follows the troop until the projectile is in the air. There is a large area of splash damage.
