Freeze Your Foes: Introducing the Ice Flak Tower!


#1

The Ice Flak Cannon is the third tower in the Flak tower series that harnesses the power of elemental energy. Here is a FAQ for this new and powerful tower.

 

ICE FLAK TOWER FAQ

 

  • When will I see this tower in my game?

We are releasing the Ice Flak Tower today (January 30th) in time for the Fortification event that begins Wednesday. The Ice Flak Tower unlocks at level 55. You can find it in your Build Menu when constructing a new tower.
 

  • What does the Ice Flak Tower do?

The Ice Flak Tower has the longest attack range and deals a moderate amount of elemental damage. The Ice Flak Tower has the highest attack rate out of all Elemental Flak Towers and fires once per second. The Supershot will prevent any Dragon hit by it from using abilities for a short time.

Supershot will not prevent or disable passives.

Supershot disables your current active ability.

 

  • How does it interact with Dragon abilities?

As it is an elemental tower, it has the same interactions similar to the Dark Flak and Fire Flak cannons.

  • It can be blocked by Crystalline Shield.
  • It cannot be inverted.
  • It can be absorbed by Elemental Barrier.

 

  • Will there be more Flak Towers?

Yes! The engineers inside the Builder Hut are hard at work building more defensive towers to protect your island.
 

  • How many Ice Flak Towers can I build?

  • Level 55: 1
  • Level 60: 2
  • Level 70: 3
  • Level 80: 4
  • Level 85: 5
  • Level 90: 6
  • Level 95: 8

 

  • How many can I build on an island?

You can only build one Ice Flak Cannon per island. You can, however, build other Flak type towers on the same island.
 

  • Will building these towers count towards the Fortification Event?

Of course!

What the flak happen?
Buffing the Elemental Ice Flaks
#2

im excited for the Poison flak. guess its a Ballista 2.0 then :heart_eyes::smiling_imp:


#3

@PGCrisis please confirm if the spell and ability debuff is also blocked by elemental barrier and crystalline shield. Also, will it block equipped spells or only spells that are innate to the dragon?

Edit: also does debuff duration increase with tower level? How long is the debuff duration? We need to know all this stuff!!


#4

When it says longest attack range, does that mean it has a range longer than 70? Invincibility Shield negates effects, so if Crystalline Shield blocks it, I’d assume Invinc would too? I thought that the dragon still gets stunned with Crystalline Shield, though :thinking: may have to poke an invader base to check.

And are all flaks meant to be treated as a projectile for both regular and super?


#5

Definitely gets stunned with elemental barrier.


#6

So you turn the corner and equip elemental barrier. Ice flak fires so now your shield is gone. But you can’t reshield because it also blocks the use of your abilities. Cue dark flak supershots. Now you’re dead.

If that’s how this works it’s now a combination of mage and cannon supershot. Aka essential defence tower.


#7

Yeah, that’s what’s throwing me off, haha, because the effect is set to be for all blue/red/white spells.


#8

Comparing this table to the dark flak chart in the other post, looks like this tower does almost exactly the same damage as the dark flak!? @PGCrisis please post dark flak and ice flak damage side by side


#9

If you could credit some embers for all that we spent on dark flak that you trashed that’d be great :+1: Even with only having 1 flak tower I don’t have enough for a second (and I’m embarrassingly active).


#10

Will you be increasing elemental ember drops? @PGCrisis

Right now when I get 125 embers from gold chest and it says “Epic!” all excitedly with an exclamation mark a piece of me dies inside. Three flaks in the game and embers are rarer than hens teeth. Look at the table above you posted and check the elemental prices. Will we see an increased amount in drops rather than the measly 125 embers?

Cheers


#11

So… does this disable cloak? Timeshift?
Sometimes we still get hit while cloaked or in timeshift, would we uncloak AND be unable to cast spells?


#12


Please say this just hasn’t been updated


#13

Probably not.


#14

This gets better and better by the screen shot. Smdh


#15

Coming soon: Sheep flak.

Normal attack: Shoots a sheep at your dragon, distracting him for three seconds while he gobbles it up.
Supershot: The tower shoots a sheep that reminds your dragon of his favorite childhood meal, causing him to intellectually regress. Dragon permanently loses one level for each level of the tower.

Naturally because this is a sheep flak tower, it uses elemental embers and gold to upgrade.


#16

So three flaks meet up on an island.

A great warrior says he can easily take down three towers. Fire flak laughs and turns his great roar of flame into a patheric meow.

A mighty sorccer says that his magic shall turn the island to ruble. The ice flak sneezes and all that comes from the sorcerer is a puff of smoke.

An epic hunter says that he is smarter than the other two and will outwit the island. He sneaks upon it to get a shot. As he is aiming his death blow his cloak slips away and all three flaks greet him with joy.

The great dragons go to nurse their wounds… and realize… they had no clue what the last two towers on the island even were…

Seriously who thought this was a good idea??


#17

ICE FLAK
Build it.
Maxed it.
Enjoy it.
(…after a few months…
WIND FLAK COMES then …
PG: lets nerf ICE Flak to promote Wind Flak
And the cycle continues.
:joy::joy::joy:

:man_shrugging:

Just sayin…


#18

Disables active spells?

That’s dumb already we have useless towers we cannot use because they don’t compare.

But now why even have cannon towers?
Cannon towers served a purpose with breaking shields especially white spells such as Elemental barrier!!

But now why not just replace with a more powerful, longer range tower that virtually does the exact same thing! If it disables current spells it would break all shields and barriers while also taking away other spells.

Hopefully I’m wrong but I think this tower is going to put a ton of cannons in storage :roll_eyes:


#19

Not just cannon my friend.


#20

I wasn’t even thinking about blue mages :rage:
Yep those won’t be needed near as much either…Red I could still see for simply stealing the rage.

The damn blue mage is solely for freezing the dragons spell “Silencing” or stopping An active spell…Wtf?

Why not just have a powerful long range tower that does the exact same thing!!! Should have just called it the blue mage flak tower :joy:

I love additions to the base and I’m all about strong bases but I don’t think this tower was very thought out!
