Bloons Wiki
The more bloons there are, the more damage it does!
~ Official BTD6 description

Avatar of Wrath is the final upgrade of Path 3 for the Druid. It allows the Druid to attack twice as fast, attack slightly further, deal +3 damage, and, most importantly, deals more damage the higher the RBE count there are on screen. Both higher quantities of bloons and bloons with higher HP will cause the Avatar of Wrath to trigger higher damage.

Initially, the Avatar of Wrath gains +3 damage, 200% attack speed and +5 range, for a total for 4 damage, 0.55 reload speed and 50 range. In addition, the Avatar of Wrath attack gains +1 damage for every 3000 RBE on screen, up to a maximum of +30 damage at 90,000 RBE. When given Heart of Thunder, the lightning bolts will work similarly, but these will gain a much smaller damage scaling, +1 damage for every 6000 RBE on screen, up to +15 damage at 90,000 RBE.

It costs $38,250 on Easy, $45,000 on Medium, $48,600 on Hard, and $54,000 on Impoppable.

Description[]

Avatar of Wrath represents wrath at its fullest. It becomes very, very red, from head to toe almost fully in red clothing, with full black for its wolf hood and black cape. Its druidic cloak, thick wristbands, and entire sleeves become red. The wolf hood becomes much more ferocious in appearance. On the official portrait, the Avatar of Wrath appears to be standing on a rock and screaming at the top of its voice while expressing extreme wrath with a flaming red aura.

Visually, the Avatar of Wrath appears to have three stages of wrath. It throws black bolts at its initial stage, red bolts at its second stage, orange bolts at its third stage, and at its final stage of wrath, it throws golden bolts.

The chart below shows how much RBE is needed to reach each visual stage of 'wrath'. Note that even when the Avatar of Wrath has reached the 4th tier of wrath, it is still able to increase its damage as it has not reached its actual cap (which is +30 damage at 90000 RBE).

Strategies[]

Summary[]

Avatar of Wrath is extremely powerful when buffed and supported with the right combinations of towers, but is very weak on its own and tends to fail if certain towers interfere with the defense. It depends a suitable combination of support towers in order to become capable of single-handedly wiping out Rounds 81-100 with ease. Like the description for the Avatar of Wrath upgrade, "The more bloons there are, the more damage it does!", it is most effective when there is more bloon health in the round. Certain types of support towers may actually worsen its performance overall, and as such those towers should be avoided if utilizing the Avatar of Wrath to the max.

The Avatar of Wrath becomes very powerful when supported by increased pierce and increased attack speed. When supported by a high-level Obyn Greenfoot, 5 nearby Poplusts, and a Stronger Stimulant Alchemist, it is able to shred Round 98 with ease on most maps. Avatar of Wrath requires Monkey Intelligence Bureau to pop Leads, which would allow it to wipe out DDT rounds too if supported by slows such as MOAB Glue or Bloon Sabotage.

However, it becomes much weaker when using support towers that reduce HP of incoming bloons such as Unstable Concoction or Shattering Shells. Because those support towers drop total HP of bloons on screen, they will weaken the damage of each Avatar of Wrath thorn, which in turn do more harm than good for the defense. Unstable Concoction in particular may produce large swarms of Super Ceramics from exploded blimps, which may cause the entire defense to become overwhelmed.

Tips[]

  • It is recommended to have 5 Poplust Druids around the Avatar since they will increase attack speed by 15% each, granting up to an additional 75% attack speed.
  • Level 2+ Obyn Greenfoot is recommended for the extra pierce as the whole Path 3 does not gain any pierce buff and hitting more bloons with a powerful bolt is very important for group MOAB-class bloons popping power.
  • Permanent Brew is also recommended as it shoots too quickly, with extra pierce, range, attack speed and damage buff each bolts gets even stronger. Stronger Stimulant is still decent with Avatar of Wrath, however.
  • With pierce buff from other sources, it is better to get Thorn Swarm, without them it is better to get Hard Thorns. With Hard Thorns, Avatar of Wrath can potentially hit up to 10 bloons per throw, but Thorn Swarm benefits much more from other buffs.
  • The Heart of Thunder upgrade is affected by the special increased damage scaling at only half the rate of its thorns. Heart of Thunder can also act as a slight boost for the built-in Druid of Wrath attack speed scaling mechanics. It packs a chunk of grouped damage in exchange for worse single-target damage.
  • The ramping damage is based on the RBE on the screen, not the actual number of bloons. This means that strong singular bloons will have the same effect as many weaker bloons with an equal RBE.
  • The power it gains allows the Druid to tear through rushes of Ceramics or Rainbows as eventually, especially if there are multiple ZOMGs or a BAD on the screen, it gains enough damage to instantly destroy them.
  • Even if granted camo detection, such as having a nearby Radar Scanner, the thorns cannot pop lead bloons or DDTs without getting Hard Thorns crosspath or obtaining external lead-popping buffs, such as from a MIB, Acidic Mixture Dip, or Level 4+ Gwendolin) for assistance.

Version History[]

On initial release, it was among the strongest Tier 5's at its time, especially with 0-1-5. As strategies become more developed by various buffs to more powerful options such as Apache Prime and Sky Shredder, Avatar of Wrath's role in the meta began to fade. However, Avatar of Wrath + Poplust + Obyn strategies remain popular among newer players and is one of the most efficient options on easier maps.

That being said, Avatar of Wrath received one buff to its weaker 2-0-5 crosspath, giving that path some superior grouped bloon value over single-target value.

27.0
[...] Also by popular demand Avatar of Wrath’s 205 crosspath will now benefit from improved Lightning damage proportional to the RBE of Bloons on screen similar to the main thorns.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff 2-0-5 Avatar of Wrath's lightning bolts now are affected by a weaker version of the damage-scaling buff. Lightning Bolts from Avatar of Wrath now deal +1 damage for every 6000 RBE on screen, up to +15 damage.

Trivia[]

  • A red, electrical aura will appear around the Avatar depending on how much RBE is on the screen and what 'stage' it is at.
  • It appears to shoot black and red lightning bolts rather than thorns along with throwing off electricity when at full 'wrath'.
  • A single BAD can trigger the final stage of wrath, since its RBE is 55,760 (+18 Damage) regardless of per-round health ramping. However, it doesn't deal max damage until 90,000 RBE.
  • Ignoring Sniper Monkeys, a 0-2-5 Avatar of Wrath is the most expensive tower in the game where all projectiles have 1 pierce by default.
