Clash of Clans has added a plethora of new characters to help players improve their attacking strategy, and spells are an important component of that strategy for assisting troops in battle. There are 12 spells in total, separated into two categories: Elixir and Dark Elixir.
The Bat Spell, a Dark Elixir spell, is one of the most popular and powerful out of these 12 spells. It complements any offensive tactic and is best used by units with strong DPS.
Unleash the Bats in Clash of Clans
The in-game description of the Bat Spell is:
"Summon an army of Bats anywhere on the battlefield! Deploy aerial reinforcements wherever you need them most. Bats do not trigger traps."
The Bat Spell is the 5th and final Dark Spell that can be obtained at level 5 Dark Spell Factory and requires a level 10 Town Hall. When you use this spell, it gradually summons a number of Bats onto the battlefield. Bats distract defenses, allowing other troops to attack.
Bats favor defensive structures above all other targets, and will avoid all enemy buildings and troops to attack defenses. This is true even if heroes, enemy's Clan Castle troops, or Skeleton Trap skeletons are attacking them.
Bat spells are best against single-target inferno towers, Archer towers, Eagle Artillery, and other single-target defenses, because they can easily distract such defenses and therefore allow other troops to clear the remaining base. Players should use at least 5 Bat spells to attack and distract enemy defense buildings.
