If i were to advice a lower level than mine, I wouldnt suggest building a lightning tower or leveling it.
Cannon tower : breaks shields rating 9/10
So if in case blues are sanded and enemy dragon used extra spell invs shield, cannon is a good turninf poiint IMO.
Archer tower : dps wise, proper runing ; rating 9/10
Storm : makes dps towers not first targets ; rating 10/10
Ice turret : provides extra def , instant dps , tanky ; 10/10 (tho im seeing most drags getting ice resist now) i still feel like ice turret’s dps and ss still a good threat for flyers.
Fire turret : slow DPS, gives an instant damage , gives a good scare u might get 2/3 or 1/2 hp shotted , (applicable when ur dragon tier is leveled with the tower) . SS i still find it very useful . Tower tanky. RATING 8/10 cuz oftenly it wont get to the point itll shoot, not if SS is triggered ofc.
Darkflak , fireflak old and new: 10/10 still best in DPS for me , and tanky ofc
I dont know how to rate lightning, MAYBE if they change SS of lightning to “boost aspd of near towers” then perhaps they’ll be back in the scene.
