Poplust... [insert more info]

On the upgrade portrait, the Poplust clearly expresses intense wrath. The monkey's pupils glow red and yellow, as do its eyelids. Both hands are glowing red and forcing out dark grey thorns. The monkey also appears to experience recoil from the intense wrath.

Strategy[]

Summary[]

A group of 6 or more (since they cannot buff themselves) Poplust Druids with Thorn Swarm can dish out a lot of damage in combination with previous upgrades, and are especially proficient at thinning out tight Bloon rushes. When deployed with a level 18 Obyn Greenfoot, all Druids of Wrath begin the round with 200 pops which effectively doubles their base attack speed. This is further improved with Obyn's boosts to Druids at level 2 and Magic Monkeys at level 11; increasing their range and pierce. All the Druids can also be boosted by Alchemist's Berserker Brew and Stronger Stimulant with increased attack speed, range, pierce and damage; with eight thorns each dealing more than two layers of damage, the tower is able to dish out a significant amount of damage quickly and consistently.

Alternatively, the player may opt to crosspath with the top path. Heart of Thunder is affected by the attack speed buffs, providing incredible popping power but less layer damage potential.

Tips[]

  • Poplust should be paired with other Druids in order to make the most of the buff. Unlike Shinobi Tactics, Poplust cannot buff itself.
  • The best crosspath for Poplust should be taken from what would be the best for Druid of Wrath.
  • Any Druid in range of a Poplust will receive its buff. This means, for example, a Superstorm or Spirit of the Forest can be greatly improved when surrounded by Poplusts.

Trivia[]

  • "Poplust" is a reference to the term "bloodlust".
  • This upgrade is very similar to Shinobi Tactics in that it buffs the pierce and attack speed of all of the same monkeys of its kind (Poplust can only buff other Druids and Shinobi Tactics can only buff other Ninja Monkeys).
    • Unlike Poplust, Shinobi Tactics can buff itself and stacks 20 times.
