~ Wizard Lord Phoenix upgrade description
  • The Wizard Lord's ability while active
  • Wizard Lord official artwork
  • Wizard Lord Phoenix as a monkey
  • Wizard Lord Phoenix as a phoenix
  • Wizard Lord Phoenix from behind
  • Disappearing original Phoenix while transforming to Wizard Lord Phoenix
  • Wizard Lord Phoenix’s new permanent Phoenix, Version 11.0 update additon

The Wizard Lord Phoenix is a Path 2, Tier 5 upgrade for the Wizard Monkey. Along with a permanent phoenix while  its ability is inactive, the Wizard Lord Phoenix upgrade buffs the new Summon Phoenix ability with increased popping power, the ability to pop Purple Bloons, and in addition to the normal phoenix flame attack (with significantly faster projectile speed), the phoenix spews out 8 fireballs at 45° angles. Interestingly, instead of summoning another Phoenix, the Wizard Lord himself merges with the Phoenix so while the Wizard Lord Phoenix is active, the monkey will not be able to attack. While the ability is active, a carved flame rune is left where the Wizard was. Costs $51,000 on Easy, $60,000 on Medium, $64,800 on Hard, and $72,000 on Impoppable.

TipsEdit

  • Upgrading Wizard Lord Phoenix to 2/5/0 or 0/5/2 will make no difference to the Wizard Lord Phoenix ability, as the abilities are not affected by crosspaths. However, 0/5/2 is generally better because this takes advantage of the improved 50 pierce (opposed to 4 pierce) of the original non-ability Dragon's Breath attacks to damage Camo Bloons.

TriviaEdit

  • Despite being named after the Wizard Lord, he doesn't bear many resemblances to the original one in BTD5.
  • Before the 2.0.0 update, another Wizard Lord Phoenix could have been placed and upgraded while the other was in phoenix form making many clones of the phoenix itself.
  • Attempting to move this with the Support Chinook while it is still transformed will cause a game crash.
    • This was fixed on Version. 3.0 (?)
  • There is a bug where building a building on High Finance would destroy the active Wizard Lord Phoenix's phoenix form.
  • when the basic Phoenix attacks while in influence of a Homeland defense, using the Wizard Lord ability spawns 2 Wizard Lord Phoenixes.
