Patch Updates affecting Giant Skeleton

patch release date description
Jul 4, 2016 - 13 months ago Getting to the enemy’s tower is quite challenging for the Giant Skeleton - as it should be - but at least with this change he’ll be one-shotting Goblins on the way.
Feb 29, 2016 - 17 months ago Hitpoints increased by 11%, bomb timer increased to 3 seconds (from 1 second) - Giant Skeleton can be the ultimate nullifier, as he's primarily used on defense to halt a push in its tracks. Adding a couple of seconds to his death bomb's fuse will make positioning your defending troops to escape the blast radius a possibility now.
