Angry Birds Epic Star Reef Castle Walkthrough

Below is our walkthrough for Angry Birds Epic Star Reef Castle. This is an incredible 5-wave castle, meaning our video is over 8 minutes long (sorry). Our strategy is as follows. In wave one, the magician pig cause the most disruption, so take him out as quickly as possible. For wave two, immediately use the Rage Chili via Bomb, then target the lightning pig before he gets too powerful. At the start of wave three, again feed Bomb the Rage Chili and focus from largest to smallest pigs. Same pattern repeats for the fourth wave, and then notice in the final wave that Wizpig heals when he does damage. It is key to stun him as many times as possible.

Completing this level will retrieve the 3rd stolen Egg!

Note: Completing this level also retrieves the Blue key! There are many places you may venture now: Eastern Cobalt Plateaus Level 5, Banjo Bayou (back near Pirate Coast), or continue chronologically to Bamboo Forest (near Great Cliffs).

If you have a different strategy for completing this level feel free to leave a comment below. Be sure to check out the rest of our Angry Birds epic walkthroughs here.

This is undeniably a most difficult level i’ve been through….on the third wave, the big wizard healing pig did different than in this video…in which it heals its 2 comrade..making its difficult to kill them…then they keep spawning new pig…the white bird dispel abilities really is really based on luck…:)..
I end up finishing this level with only bluebird..with the white bird died on fourth wave…

By UltSuper

Thanks alot…. only through of your guide I was able to complete the level with all the 3 birds with approx. 70% health each…. This was really hard and the last time i tried i reached Wizpig and then all the 3 birds died in single hit…. You made this level alot easier!

@AMSlimfordy @BirdLeader — It appears that the only way to carry enough health through the first 4 waves is to disable the magician in the first attack. It is not clear to me how this happens, or what the probability is. There are clearly purple down arrows on the magician, but even with them, he sometimes does not lose a turn. What is it that causes him to lose a turn, so he takes 3 turns instead of 2 before he attacks?

@mvnla2 I’m not really sure what your question is.

Cannoneer (Bomb)’s attack is called Cover Fire. It deals 3x (low) damage and lowers target attack power by -20% for 2 turns. Reduced attack power is indicated by down-arrows on the target.

@AMslimfordy — Thanks for the response. I wasn’t sure how to describe it. If you look at the video carefully, after the first bird attack the magician advances and yells, but it doesn’t count as a turn (there is no partially filled blue bar over his head). This gives the birds an extra turn, which allow them to take him out before he attacks. This is not what usually happens for me. The first time he advances, his turn bar starts filling up. I think it has happened every time except once, when of course, I made a stupid mistake. I didn’t hold tap on bomb long enough, and he self-activated. Gaah! I guess the moral of that story is that you shouldn’t constantly be checking your birds’ health.

@mvnla2 His first turn uses the “increase attack power” ability, nearly always in my experience.

@AMSlimfordy — Almost never in mine. : (
However, I did figure out how to leave the 1st level with close to 100% health for all birds. You just need to get rid of the magician, and then don’t kill all the pigs until you are at 100% health. Best to target blues with bomb, and either blues or bomb with blues.
Now if I could just get through the other levels.
Somehow, even though I am using exactly the same birds with the same equipment (even though it seems that I might have better equipment for bomb) the health of the pigs doesn’t always decrease as quickly as in the video.

I am still haveing trouble getting through this one. I have the same gear(some better;I have legendary items). I am at level 12. I have done exactly what is done in the video. But my birds still die. I don’t know what to do.

I ment level 11! Not level 12

By †amer

i guess it only works for level 11 below, i tried it and i can’t it looks like it becomes a bit more difficult when you have higher level, though i’m only 12.

Feed the red chilli to blues.

By santhosh

We can use samurai, rainbird & druid.

What do you mean we can use samurai, rainbird & druid? can they stun the boss? What weapons or head piece do I need?


Rank: Flinger with 30 points
By santhosh0809 (@santhosh0809)

We can use samurai with duck hammer, rainbird with star wand and druid with that green colour comb.

By PorkSoupMaker

I have equipments:
Princess Matilda
Cannoneer Bomb
& Rouge Blues
So my strategy is : first attack with matilda and because of her royal order, enemies will attack only bomb
Then activate bombs and blues ‘ supportive abilities on bomb. When enemies attack, they ‘ll attack only bomb.
That is best combination for me. I ‘m stuck on wave 5 – WizPig so my strategy wont work

By len

The reason that people are getting one shotted by wizpig is that he is doing double damage from his buff. You have to time your blue bird stun/ chili pepper to happen between the wizpig buff (always happened for his first attack for me) and his lightning strike. Since his lightning strike takes two turns, that gives you a two turn window.

Does this level get harder if I level up?

@ammutt-22 I believe so. But the basic strategy remains the same.

I retried this castle at lvl 13 and somehow made it to 4th wave. Then all of my birds died because of those naughty pigs

By A

I used Red (Paladin), White (Princess) & Black (Pirate). I am only Level 10.

Got to Wizpig easily. Use black to boost attack (& attack when he can), use white to attack (and cause them all to attack paladin) & white to heal paladin & use paladin to attack always (he regains his lost health).

Can’t kill wizpig though, he one shots white & black.

By A

I retried using Red (Paladin), White (Princess) & Blue (Rogues).

Just keep attacking with Red (will heal whoever is lowest health), use White to heal Red, use Blue to attack & use Cupcake Treat (to force all enemies to target Red).

When you get to Wizpig @ the end, use Blue’s Rage Chili ability on him, attack with Red, heal with White.

I was still only level 10 & it worked well. 3 stars.

anyone got a good bird combo for me in this level? i have every bird class so far and i want trickster blues to get to the end for wizpig, along with that can you tell me what to do with that bird combo for each seperate wave?

By Daniel

helped the first time like a charm, with three stars, but not hitting the treasure box. Now trzing for two days to do the same, but not really able to replicate. Even secong group kill my birds :( dont know whats wrong

By Daniel

in fact: first episode: magician is no longer doing the boost charge but immediately goes for loading his rain of fire. So its impossible to kill him before he strikes. That makes my birds need healing sooner, turning attacks into healing and loosing time. Also in third episode its like fifty fifty which unit starts to call for backup. If I hit the wrong one, I cant than make it in time to kill it before it calls for help. And than its a circle with no end… :( When I make it through first three episodes, its almost ok.


I disagree that the higher your level, the harder it is. The trick is to downgrade (gasp!) your birds’ hats to the hats you see in the walkthrough. I followed the walkthrough and got 3 stars. Thanks to kids that play lower levels for fun, I’m a Level 16 and just now reached this castle.
Thanks so much for the assistance!! Great video.

How to downgrade?

There is no downgrading.
