I play around the 5k level and have neglected upgrading zap past L11. I play against majority max decks so a L13 zap is not going to one shot goblin barrel or minion hoard.
As far as I can tell, L11 zap does all the desired interactions.
When paired with max ice spirit, it kills max minions / goblins. When paired with max skeleton barrel, it kills max minions / goblins. When paired with tornado, it kills max minions / goblins. It takes enough damage off minions so level 13 king tower (or even spear goblins) only needs 1 shot to finish them off.
As far as I can tell, the only real benefit is extra tower chip damage, and extra damage if zapping something like barbarians.
This doesn’t seem convincing enough reason to me to upgrade compared to the value I get upgrading other cards.
Are there any interactions I’m overlooking that would benefit from having max zap vs max decks?
