Splinterlands | Javelin Thrower Challenge

Splinterlands | Javelin Thrower Challenge

By costanza | costanza | 16 May 2020

Another edition of the Share Your Battle Challenge and this week the Javelin Thrower is card is highlighted.


The Javelin Thrower is an old rare Earth summoner class reward card that has been fully printed so the only way you can own it is if you buy it off the market. I collected quite a few back in the day and own 30 of them including one at level 5. I currently have 21 of them leased out to players who signed up with my affiliate and 9 more available. It is quite a good card in both the early levels where 2 range damage is hard to come by and a great counter against the powerful armor ability. At the higher levels, it has the dodge ability making it suitable for the last position even though it remains vulnerable with limited health.


The card forms a great combo with the Mushroom Seer in matches where there is an Armored Up rule. It is one of those cards that doesn't need a specific ruleset in order to be useful and the game I played had the 'No Sneak / No Snipe' Rules.


I tend to play this rule with max healing for the 1st Card which leaves it vulnerable if the opponent uses the affliction ability. If not, it's almost always a clear win which was the case in this match. I put the self-healing Flesh Golem in the first spot followed by the Golden Furious Chicken as a way to protect the healing Wood Nymph and the Javelin Thrower in last position. The opponent simply had not enough firepower to break through my healing while the 3 damage from the Javelin Thrower was good enough to break the Shield Ability of his Level 3 Lord Arianthus. Overall a clear win, the 2 Extra health from the Earth Summoner & Strengthen ability also helped.
