Angry Birds Epic - How To Beat Golden Pig And Collect Lucky Coins
We shared some of our best tips to win battles in any situation in Angry Bird Epic. Today we're going to share some of our best strategies for consistently beating the daily Golden Clouds challenge. If you're new to the game, take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our pig guide for some tips on how to defeat some of Angry Birds Epic's most heinous pigs.
Know your enemy strengths and weaknesses
There are many ways to take on the pigs in Angry Bird Epic, but in order to get three stars and increase your chance of getting more loot, you'll need skills and strategy. Knowing your enemies' weaknesses is the best way to make the most of your birds' abilities.
The Golden Pig has a decent amount of health and weakens your Rage Chili meter with every successful attack. Each attack does 145 HP damage, and his special attack does double damage with a 20 percent chance to stun for one turn. These are signs that you could possibly be in for a long battle, so choose birds with staying power.
Keeping the battle short and sweet
As you progress in the game and enter the daily Golden Clouds challenge for free Lucky Coins, it's best to avoid a long battle that would prevent you from maximizing loot. Selecting the right team combination for the job is key in making this battle a successful one.
Picking the right team for the mission
The team we use regularly that ensures a three star victory consists of Red Bird, Matilda and Black Bomb. Having a balance of defense, Health regeneration and Strength is the perfect combination for withstanding Golden Pig's attacks.
Don't be afraid to stack power-ups and negative effects
Stacking power-ups is the best way to keep your team in the game. You'll find yourself in situations where you can't avoid damage from an enemy pig.
Bomb's Pummel attack does serious damage in combination with his ARRR! power-up. Matilda's Thorny Vine attack deals damage over time for three rounds, and her regrowth will offer an immediate health increase when Golden Pig lays down the attack.
Guardian Red Bird's Aura of Fortitude will protect the flock, and his Dragon Strike will take his HP down even further with its triple attack. Using power-ups and negative effects in combination with a good attack strategy will make the battle easier and shorter.
How do you determine what strategy to use on Golden Pig in Angry Birds Epic?
Knowing what strategy to deploy against the pigs is determined by your abilities. Class, Weapons and Off-handed items directly affect what abilities are available. Experimentation with different Class, Weapons and Off-handed items to compliment your birds' primary and secondary abilities is the only way to learn what works on various Pig Bosses. In the case of Golden Pig, you have to follow a specific strategy to take him out.
Since you're the first to attack, start with Bomb's ARRR! power-up to increase team attack power.
Benefiting from Bomb's power-up and Druid Matilda's Thorny Vine attack will see increased initial attack damage and continue to do additional damage for the next three rounds.
Also benefiting from Bomb's power-up, Samurai Red Bird's attack will see increased initial attack damage, and Dragon Strike will hit Golden Pig three times in one turn.
You're off to a good start before Golden Pig even lays down his first attack. He'll receive damage from Matilda's Thorny Vine attack and most likely target Red Bird. Use Matilda's Regrowth to answer any damage dealt.
Continue to attack for three turns with Bomb and Red Bird to further whittle dow his HP. When the status effects wear off on Golden Pig, restart with the offensive strategy and repeat the steps until he's finished.
If you've followed these steps, you'll beat Golden Pig with three stars and receive maximum loot, as well as your daily Lucky Coins reward.
