Is the Ice Spirit giving you trouble in defending from a push? Here are some ways to prevent it from freezing your units!

Overview:

Ice Spirit is one of the newest cards in Clash Royale alongside with the announcement of the new Frozen Peak Arena. It is probably the most valuable card right now. It only costs 1 elixir to deploy in the field. It is also a common card so you can easily level the Ice Spirit up.

Here are some tips to counter the Ice Spirit and prevent him from doing massive damage in a match.

Strength:

Ice Spirit's strength is probably its freeze time. It can freeze anything for 2 seconds. It will be a great choice as a support and also as a replacement for Zap. You can also use it even if its level 1 since leveling it up only increases his damage and hitpoints. However, its main use is its freeze time. You do not have to bother leveling him up unless you really have to. Also, Zap cannot stop him if both are at the same level.

How to Counter:

Using Spell Cards:

Zap The Log Arrows Fireball

These are the most effective spell cards to use against an Ice Spirit. Although, the advantage will be over the opponent because it is a trade of 1 elixir (Ice Spirit) and 2,3, or 4 (Zap,The Log,Arrows, Fireball). On the other hand, it will be advantageous to use if he is trying to create a push along with Ice Spirit.

Zap cannot kill it when they are both level 7 or level 8, though. Keep that in mind.

Using low HP units as baits:

Skeletons Spear Goblins Goblins Fire Spirits

Ice Spirit can be dangerous when it hits your main counter for a tank like Hog Rider, Golem, Giant, or Royal Giant. By using the units above, you can easily waste the Ice Spirit while deploying other units like Barbarians or Minion Horde to stop the push.

Using ranged units/buildings with AOE damage:

Princess Bowler Baby Dragon Bomber

Witch Wizard Ice Wizard Bomb Tower

Ice Spirit has low hitpoints. Using ranged units with AOE damage can kill it before it makes any attacks. Plus, you could create a counter push with most of these troops so you do not have to worry about losing the advantage over the amount of elixirs.

Bomb Tower can also be a good defensive building that utilizes Ice Spirit since its AOE damage is pretty good. Also, most tanks can easily be distracted when you place it right.
