Zap is an amazing spell card. Find out how to use it to its full potential.

Overview:

Zap used to be an underrated card in Clash Royale. However, it has since become one of the great spell cards to support the Hog Rider, defend your lane from Minion Horde and the two Princes. Another use of Zap is to stop Sparky's time-of-attack, one of the newest cards in the roster.

Zap can be used in other ways too, but its strength relies on the timing of the user whether it is going to be used to its full potential or not. Here are some tips to utilize his uses to its full potential.

Zap is amazing on stopping low HP units. If you manage to encounter those units listed above, use Zap to stop them before they deal any damage to your tower. Minion Horde will not get killed instantly, but with the right timing and placement of zap, the crown tower will do the rest in disposing them.

There are a lot of combos you can do with the Zap spell. He is best used with Hog Rider especially if you want to clutch a match in overtime. Zap maybe able to stun the counter troops letting the Hog Rider hit the tower for the win. Zap can also damage the tower with less than a hundred damage. This may be small but it is quite significant when the tower is below 300 health and you are trying to push with a Hog Rider.

Royal Giant and Wizard will also be a good combo to use Zap spell to support them. If you are encountering a Minion Horde as the opponent's defensive unit, you can zap them before they deal heavy damage to your Royal Giant. Of course, Wizard should kill them once they are zapped. Same goes with Barbarians, but Wizard may take a little bit more time to dispose of them.
