How to get Clash Royale Gold faster

Undoubtedly Gold is the most important thing in Clash of Royale since you can do everything with it. So How to get Clash Royale Gold faster easily

Clash Royale Gold

In Clash Royale, you can earn Gold by:
  • Opening Chests.
  • Donating Cards.
Firstly, the easiest way to earn Gold in game is opening Wooden Chest, Silver Chest, Golden Chest and Crown Chest. Attempt to open them whenever you can by playing a few battles in game everyday to take all that easy and sweet money.

Donating is the second way to earn Gold in game. Some players think it’s stupid to give the hard-earned cards away. Yes, it’s pretty hard to get them but you can get XP and 5 Gold for every donated common card and 50 Gold for every Rare. The Gold is not taken from the player getting the card from you. It’s  just like you are selling cards but the buyers don’t have to pay. You can donate in total 60 cards everyday, that’s 300 Gold everyday and 2100 Gold every week (or even 4200 Gold every week If you usually donate Rares). By donating, you can buy 1-2 Epic Card from the Store everyweek! That’s very crazy If you don’t want to get that free epic because It’s much harder to get those cards than the donated ones.

Also, as long as you keep requesting cards, you can always take your cards back, so why not give them away, right? You can request 3 times everyday and 10 common cards at a time. I usually keep requesting Barbarians and donating them whenever I can because most players use Barbarians.

How to play and counter Clash Royale Cards

How to play and counter Clash Royale Cards ?  I’m not the best player so everything I shared in this guide could be not really right. However, I would share with all you guys how I play and counter every card in Clash Royale. This guide is based on vm88’s tips (thank you man).
How to play and counter every Card in Clash Royale 

Clash Royale Archers
Archers are quite slow in Clash Royale, they deal a decent amount of damage and are pretty beefy for a ranged unit with only 3 Elixir cost. A single Fireball can take them down but It’s not worth it If you can’t take down them and some other troops (or deal damage to the opponent tower) at the same time.
Most of the time, you don’t want to use the Fireball on Archers by themselves unless it’s extremely necessary.
Baby Dragon, Wizard and Bomber (troops which deal splash damage) can take Archers down quickly and survive with some HP.
Clash Royale Arrows
Arrows is one of the most popular cards in Clash Royale as it can 1 hit a lot of swarm troops such as Goblins, Spear Goblins, Minions, Goblin Barrel and Skeletons (from Skeleton Army, Tombstone, Skeletons and Witch).
In most cases, you can get an Elixir advantage when you use the Arrows on those swarms.
If you want to effectively counter the Arrows, the only way is to try to bait it out before deploying your main swarms. One of my favorite trick is to throw the Goblin Barrel towards the enemy tower, most of the time, my opponent will immediately use the Arrows, after that, I just simply plop down my cheap swarms (Goblins, Minions,…).
Clash Royale Baby Dragon
Baby Dragon
The Baby Dragon is one of the best cards in Clash Royale for sure. He is a flying tanker which deals splash damage and kills plenty of troops in just 1-2 attacks. He is extremely versatile on both offense and defense.
Definitely the Musketeer is the best single card you may want to trade with the Baby Dragon. If not, don’t simply drop your Spear Goblins or Minions, you should wait until he is locked on a high HP troop/tower and then use them as he can kill them in just 1-2 hits.
Tesla and Inferno Tower works pretty well against Baby Dragon (but I think it’s not worth it to drop down a defensive building card in order to deal with only one Baby Dragon.
The downside of Baby Dragon is that he can’t deal much damage to the Tower. That’s why sometime you should just sacrifice some HP of your Tower to save Elixir.
Clash Royale Bomber
Like the Arrows, in Clash Royale, Bomber can be effectively used to get positive Elixir trades Vs. swarms, Barbarians,… especially when you play him behind a building/tower or a high HP tanker.
If your opponent drops Bomber behind a Tower, it’s worth it to Fireball him and also deal damage to the Tower at the same time. That’s a great trade!
If your opponent plays Bomber after a tanker and pushing onto your side, drop a single troop which has decent damage (Knight for example) behind him to easily take him out.
If Bomber is attacking your Tower, he can deal a lot of damage. However, you should let your Tower deals with him If it is locked onto him as well.
Clash Royale fireball
The Fireball is pretty similar to the Arrows above but it deals a bit more damage in a smaller radius.
Obviously Fireball can 1-hit every troop the Arrows can.
You can also use it to 1-hit Bomber, low level Wizards, Musketeers. It can also be able to bring Wizards, Barbarians Musketeers and Witches to the red HP bar.
The easiest way to bait out the Fireball is to drop your Barbarians.
Clash Royale Giant
Giant is a handsome tanker (as known as a massive meat shield). He targets only buildings.
Although he can deal a good amount of damage to the Towers, he is often used to soak damage and protect small ranged troops behind.
Sometimes I use him on defense to distract the enemy troops away from your Towers and defensive troops.
In order to counter the Giant, you can simply use high damage swarms such as Minion Horde, Barbarians… on top of Giant. Use defensive building card such as Tesla, Cannon,… If you have to buy more time. You can easily stop him from attacking your Tower and also deal a decent amount of damage to him with these cards.
When you face a Giant push, I strongly recommend you use Arrows/Fireball on the supporting troops behind him and use other cards to deal with him. If they are not available, you should wait until they push to your side then drop your troops on the top of those supporting troops. Be careful when you drop swarm troops such as Spear Goblins or Minion Horde onto splash damaging troops such as Wizards, Baby Dragon or Bomber.
Clash Royale Knight
Knight is a pretty cheap card which has decent HP, nice damage and is a ground melee troop.
It’s pretty easy to counter the Knight but he can deal a decent amount of damage to your Tower If he gets left unchecked.
You can effectively use air troops to deal with him without getting hit as he is melee troop and targets only ground units.
If you have to use a ranged troop to deal with him, make sure you place it far enough so he can’t attack your troop before taking a lot of damage.
Clash Royale Mini P.E.K.K.A

Mini P.E.K.K.A
Mini P.E.K.K.A is a glass cannon melee troop which has pretty low HP but a lot of damage. “She” is a melee troop, which can targets only ground units.
You should use her when you have another high HP troop to tank damage otherwise she will die quickly.
To deal with Mini P.E.K.K.A, you can use cheap ground swarms such as Goblins, Skeletons,…
Clash Royale MusketeerMusketeer
She is a ranged troop who can deal a lot of damage when protected or left alone.
You should protect your Musketeer with a high HP troop/tower to soak damage for her.
If the opponent drops a Cannon, just simply use your Musketeer since her can outrange it without getting a single hit.
To counter the Musketeer in Clash Royale, you can either use a Fireball or Lightning Spell on her and the Tower. Otherwise, you can wait until she crosses over to your side and drop cheap cards right onto her (Goblins, Knight, Barbarians,… are the great choices for this).
Clash Royale Prince
Here you go, one of the best cards in Clash Royale. Obviously he has brought a lot of more difficulty to new players than all other cards. However, you can easily counter him. He has a pretty nice HP, fast movement speed. He has a special ability which helps him run faster and gain 2x the damage on the targeted unit.
On defense, once he is dropped, you need to react quickly because of his incredible movement speed. The key to deal with him is to use cheap ground swarms such as Goblins, Spear Goblins, Skeletons,… And these troops can deal a decent amount of damage to him and buy more time so your Towers can hit him longer. You should also drop your troops in the middle of your arena in order to lure him there, he will take a lot of damage while running and also getting attacked by both Towers. Never use a single troop to stop him since he can 1-hit most of them.
Clash Royale Skeleton Army
Skeleton Army
Skeleton Army is mostly used on defense. Skeleton Army is extremely useful at dealing with big threats as they can quickly surround them and deal a lot of damage.
This card can be easily countered by Arrows, Fireball, Wizard, Baby Dragon, Bomber,… (all cards that deal splash damage), that’s why we rarely use them on offense.
Before using the Skeleton Army, make sure your opponent doesn’t have the Arrow or any other splash damaging spell card on his hand otherwise it will be a big waste.
Clash Royale Witch
The Witch summons a certain amount of Skeletons, she deals a relatively low amount of splash damage. Also, her HP is pretty low, that’s why she can be killed by Lightning and some other spell cards.
My favorite way to counter the Witch is to use Lightning to deal damage to both her and the Tower. She will be killed by the Lightning regardless. Also, you can use Fireball and leave her with a small amount of HP. Otherwise, you can simply drop a card (Knight for example) right onto her when she crosses over your arena.
As I said above, If you has a Witch, never place her next to your Tower in order to prevent the opponent from damaging both of her and your Tower.


Clash Royale Goblin
This card summons 3 small Goblins that have nice damage but low HP. However, If you leave them unchecked, they will definitely a decent amount of damage to your troops and towers.
You can Fireball, Arrows,.. to 1 hit them but I recommend doing this If you can also other troops at the same time. Otherwise, most troops can be used to deal with them.
Clash Royale Spear Goblins
Spear Goblins
Definitely Spear Goblins is one of the most useful cards in Clash Royale.
This card spawns 3 fast ranged Goblins that can deal nice damage but has pretty low HP.
You shouldn’t use only Spear Goblins since lots of troops can 1 hit them, unless you want to use them at starting, when the Elixir bar hits 10 (You can place them on the bridge so they can deal hundreds damage to the enemy Towers). It’s recommended to have a tanky protecting them.
If your opponent groups them with other swarm troops such as Goblins, Minions, Skeletons,… It’s worth it to throw an Arrows card on them, or maybe even a Fireball If there are some Archers and Barbarians.
Wizard and Baby Dragon are extremely effective at dealing with them since they can 1 hit them anytime.
If the opponent use only Spear Goblins to deal some damage to your Tower, it’s better to just do nothing and let your Tower dealing with them.
Clash Royale Goblin Hut
Goblin Hut
The Goblin Hut spawns a Spear Goblin after a decent time. This card is usually used to apply constant pressure to a lane and launch a massive push later.
If your opponent drops the Goblin Hut on one lane and starts attacking on the other one, it’s better to just ignore the Goblin Huts since it can’t do much damage to your Tower (just a few hundred damage).
If the opponent places some Huts on 1 side and try to launch a big push, you can use either Fireball, Rocket or Lightning on those Hut and also try to deal damage to the enemy Tower at the same time.
Poison is also very great to deal with Hut Deck.
Clash Royale Goblin Barrel
Goblin Barrel
This is another pretty popular card in Clash Royale. Not only new players but also many top players are using Goblin Barrel a lot as his card can deal a ton of damage to tower If left unchecked.
Most of the time, players throw this card onto the enemy tower. You can easily drop the Arrows on top of your Tower when the Barrel has crossed the river. But you should take care about this. Sometimes the opponent wants to bait your Arrows out with Goblin Barrel. Make sure you opponent doesn’t have any swarm before using your Arrows.
As I said above, one of my favorite strategy to bait out the Arrows is to drop Goblin Barrel right on top of the opponent. Non-Experienced players usually immediately drop the Arrows and I can start launching my massive push with no worry.
Clash Royale Lightning
This is one of my favorite cards in Clash Royale. Lightning is the anti-building card which works extremely wells against X-Bow decks, Hut decks, defensive decks,…
Sometimes, you can use Lightning to deal with slow pushes which have high DPS troop such as Musketeer, Wizard.
If your opponent has a Witch, simply drop Lightning onto her and also the Tower to take her down within seconds.
The downside of this card is that it is quite expensive. Before using it, make sure you have enough Elixir to deal with any sneaky push.One of my favorite combos I usually use in low leagues is to drop the Barbarians right on the bridge at starting and then drop Lightning when once the opponent drops a big cards to deal with the Barbarians.
Clash Royale Valkyrie
Valkyrie is rare used in Clash Royale. I haven’t seen many decent Valkyrie Decks yet.
She has nice HP and does splash damage in a circle around her.
If you want to kill her, don’t use group swarm troops such as Barbarians, Skeleton Army, Goblins,… as she can kill them all in just 1 second.
The best way to deal with her is to use either air troops or ground troops which can deal damage to single target (Knight, Musketeer,…).

Don’t worry guys! This guide is being updated! I am going to finish it soon!

How does the Chest Drop on Clash Royale

I have seen couples questions about the % drop rate of Chests that you can earn after the Battle in Clash Royale.

People suggested it was about 1% for Magical Chest, 25% for Gold Chest and 74% for Silver Chest. That’s a good theory but not how the game runs.
Chest Drop Order in Clash Royale

How do Clash Royale Chests drop?

Exactly there is a chest order in game. Every Chest that you get after the Battles is based on this list. When this cycle goes through, it will restart again.
By digging the game files, Asdamp has found this chest order list.
Small note: You will always get 6 Wooden Chests at first, during the Training Camp.
Show the Chest drop order
This list contains 240 Chests in total, there are 3 Giant Chests and 3 Magical Chests in this list.

Frequently Asked Questions

How about the Super Magical Chest?
As far as I know, this chests drop randomly. There isn’t any certain information about its drop rate yet but I believe it’s lower than 0.1%.
What If I don’t have any open chest slot?
Don’t worry, you won’t miss any chest. The chest order will stop until you have the free slot.
Hope you have found this small post helpful!

The Best Cards and The Worst Cards in Clash Royale

The best Cards to Upgrade and the Worst Cards to Ignore

10 Best Common and Rare Cards

Best common and rare cards
  1. Arrows – Arrows have always been among the most popularly used cards in the game and in all levels of play. This is a very high value card as it only costs 3 Elixir and can almost always provide you with an Elixir advantage by using it properly. It has a very large radius, allowing you to deal damage to multiple troops at once. Imagine using the Arrow card on a Minion Horde and Spear Goblins, that will instantly give you a 4 Elixir profit. So it’s no surprise that the Arrow card is among one of the most popular cards in the game.
  2. Barbarians – The Barbarians card had always been a popular card and a very good card as well. For the price of just 5 Elixir, you’re able to summon 4 powerful Barbarians. To demonstrate their power together, one level 8 Barbarian has 579 HP and 96 DPS. So 4 of them together is a total of 2316 HP and 384 DPS, no other card in the game gives you this much value. Now what makes Barbarians is not that offensive potential, but how good of a defense they are. They are able to defeat some of the most powerful offensive combinations in the game, which includes the Hog Rider, Prince, Pekka, Goblem, Giant Skeleton, and so on. So again it’s really not a surprise why you see Barbarians so commonly used on TV Royale all the time.
  3. Hog Rider – The Hog Rider is undoubtedly the best offensive card in the game. He has very decent HP, he’s very fast, powerful, and can go straight for your Arena Tower. Making him a very annoying card to stop when you don’t have multiple buildings. Not only that, the most frightening aspect of the Hog Rider, in my opinion, is that he only costs 4 Elixir! So he can have a detrimental effect in a game when you’ve taken a small Elixir lead.
  4. Spear Goblins – Spear Goblins are among the cheapest cards in the game and come with a high return value. It can be the first card you play without spending so much Elixir to scout your opponent. Three Spear Goblins together also make for a strong air-targeting combo behind a tank such as a Giant or Golem. They are an excellent way to make profit with Elixir. By simply using them on defense with your Arena Tower, you can make a big profit in Elixir. For example, say your opponent sends in a Mini Pekka, you can simply use your Spear Goblins to deal damage and distract and along with your Arena Tower also helping out on defense, you can quickly kill the Mini Pekka and take a 2 Elixir lead. Or you can even allow your opponent’s Baby Dragon to target your Arena Tower, but place your Spear Goblins on the side to quickly kill the Baby Dragon. This way, you lose a few HP on your Arena Tower, but you obtain a 2 Elixir profit and still have all your Spear Goblins at full health. So yea, this is a card made for winning.
  5. Archers – Similar to Spear Goblins, but cost 1 more Elixir. However, their cost is granted by the fact that they are more superior. They do more damage and have much greater HP. For example, level 8 Spear Goblins have 100 HP, while level 8 Archers have 241. Spear Goblins get one-shotted by Arrows, Baby Dragon, Wizard, Zap, and many other cards, but the Archers do not and that’s what makes the Archers special. However, at high level play, the Archers become quickly outclassed by the Princess card.
  6. Goblins – Goblins are also among one of the best cards in the game because of how cheap they are, only 2 Elixir! While they do insane damage together. For example, three level 8 Goblins together do 261 damage per second, which makes them an excellent defense. With just a 2 Elixir cost, you can quickly obtain a big Elixir profit. You will very commonly see Goblins and Spear Goblins used among the best players in the game.
  7. Wizard – The Wizard is among one of the best cards in the game because of what he can do. He has very decent DPS and what makes him special is the fact that he does splash damage. He’s an excellent card to beating hut spammers and some of the most commonly used cards in the game, such as Barbarians and Minion Horde. The only other splash attacking cards that can target air troops are the Baby Dragon and Witch. However, both the Baby Dragon and Witch card are much weaker than the Wizard, so they struggle to beat a card such as the Minion Horde on time. And so, that’s what makes the Wizard such a good and important card. It basically outclasses the Musketeer because of its ability to do splash damage.
  8. Fireball – The Fireball card is another excellent card for winners. People often misuse this card and use it for targeting Arena Towers. What makes the Fireball one of the best cards in the game is its high potential of getting a great Elixir profit. This card is meant to be used as a defensive stopper. It’s best used against a clumped group of troops. For example, the Fireball is an excellent counter against the very common Barbarian card. Since it costs 4 Elixir, using a Fireball on Barbarians at any time is always a good idea. However, it’s even a better idea to wait and use the Fireball on the Barbarians and the support troops behind him to maximize your profit. For example, if someone uses Barbarians, they’re going to most likely couple the Barbarians with another troop such as ranged attacker. So what you should is wait until the Barbarians have it to your side and see if your opponent couples the Barbarians with another troop, and then you drop your Fireball onto all of them. The main challenge of the Fireball is to accurately time and drop it, something you will learn to master with experience.
  9. Minion Horde – Like the Barbarians, the Minion Horde is another monstrous card on both defense and offense. It is a very commonly use card because of just how many powerful cards that it quickly counter. The Minion Horde is definitely one of the best defense in the game. However, unlike Barbarians, the Minion Horde can be one-shotted by Arrows. But it’s fast card and often can counter a big threat before your opponent can even play the Arrow card.
  10. Tesla – The Tesla is one of the most powerful defenses in the game and only costs 4 Elixir. Not only that, it can avoid area damage spell cards by hiding underground. Although to make the game more fast paced, Supercell decided to nerf all defensive buildings in coherence to their “offense over defense” philosophy. However, the Tesla still remains as possibly the best defensive building in the game.
Now if you guys are wondering what the best Epic cards are to get and work on, then I’m going to give you guys my top 5.

5 Best Epic Cards

Best Clash Royale Epic Cards
  1. Baby Dragon – The Baby Dragon would be my pick as the most versatile and useful Epic card in the game. Definitely not the most powerful card, but it can fit in almost any deck. It’s bulky, so you can use your ranged attackers behind it. It does splash damage and can target both ground and air troops, which is very important for defeating hordes and hut spammers. The other two troops that can do splash damage and target air are the Wizard and Witch, but what makes the Baby Dragon a more appealing option is that it costs only 4 Elixir while the Witch and Wizard cost 5. And the Baby Dragon is much bulkier, and not weak to Fireball.
  2. Prince – Along with the Hog Rider, the Prince is also one of the best offensive cards in the game because of power and speed and his ability to deal double the damage when charging. Not only that, he is very versatile because of his very decent HP. Which means that you can use him on defense as well and couple him with ranged attackers.
  3. Dark Prince – Like his brother, the Dark Prince is also one of the best offensive cards in the game. The Prince is weak to hordes of low HP troops, but the Dark Prince isn’t, he can deal splash damage and kill them all at once. However, he isn’t as powerful as the Prince, but his ability to deal splash damage is very important. His bulkiness also makes him a very versatile card for defense. Not to mention, he only costs 4 Elixir, which is 1 less than his brother.
  4. Golem – The Golem is definitely one of the best cards in the game. Unfortunately, the Golem is also one of the most expensive cards, costing 8 Elixir to use. But that’s warranted because of his very high HP, death damage, and ability to generate Golemites after his death. All this just makes him one of the best Epics.
  5. Poison Spell – The Poison Spell is a dangerous defensive card that not only slowly kills its foes, but also slows their speed. Best of all, it only costs 4 Elixir, which is very worth it when used against low HP troops and slowing down the bulkier troops and win those Elixir tradeoffs. Remember, your Arena Tower also helps out on defense, with a combination of Poison and your Arena Tower, you can win big Elixir tradeoffs on defense, making the Poison Spell a very dangerous card.
So those are my top 5 Epic cards. Now lastly, I’m going to tell you guys the 5 worst cards in the game, that you should probably ignore.

5 Worst Cards to Ignore

Worst Cards in Clash Royale
  1. Royal Giant – The Royal Giant is one of the worst cards in the game. He costs 6 Elixir and is super slow and super weak. It’s awesome that he’s a ranged attacker, but that goes against his very decent HP. You can’t use your other ranged attackers behind him because the Royal Giant is going to want to stay behind all your troops. Not only that, he targets buildings, which is great but the problem is his DPS is just too low.
  2. Rage – The Rage Spell is an awesome spell in Clash of Clans. However, in Clash Royale, the problem with the Rage Spell is, it doesn’t power up your troops, it only gives them speed. So they should probably rename this card to Haste Spell, because that’s what it is. This card just isn’t a good spell even with slow troops such as the Pekka, Giant Skeleton, and Balloon. And that’s because all of those troops are still very easy to distract. And the Rage Spell only gives a 35% speed boost, which in my opinion, is not enough.
  3. Three Musketeers – The Three Musketeers is one of the most powerful cards in the game, but at the same time it’s one of the worst cards in the game. And the reason for that is, it costs 10 Elixir to use. So basically you’re going to have to spend your whole Elixir on summoning three Musketeers. And all you have to do to counter them is simply throw one Fireball, which costs 4 Elixir. It’s just not worth 10 Elixir to summon 3 Musketeers.
  4. Skeleton Army – The Skeleton Army is a good defense, but is just a horrible offense and is also one-shotted by Arrows and the Zap Spell. It’s outclassed by the Tombstone and Barbarians. It gets one-shotted by every splash attacker. And with the assistance of your Arena Tower on defense, it’s just super easy to quickly stop a Skeleton Army. So yea, really not a card I’d invest my money on.
  5. Valkyrie – The Valkyrie is not a terrible card, but at high level play, she becomes quickly outclassed by the Dark Prince. Like the Valkyrie, the Dark Prince is a ground splash attacker, but is just overall much better. Not only that, the Valkyrie really isn’t that great as a bulky splash attacker because of her inability to target air troops. So she also becomes outclassed by the Baby Dragon. And so, because of the Baby Dragon and Dark Prince, it’s just not worth upgrading your Valkyrie for the long term.
So that’s my list, most of which is my opinion, so if you guys don’t agree with me on something, then feel free to comment below on your opinion. Hopefully this helped out a lot, so be sure to give this video a thumbs up and also subscribe for more great Clash Royale content. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you guys again soon. Later!

How To Spend Gems on Clash Royale

Hello guys, do you know how to spend Gems properly in Clash Royale? Let’s talk about this topic today. I have received loads of questions about this lately. I hope this guide is good enough to satisfy you. Also, I want to give a big thanks to The Rum Ham for helping me finish this guide (he is the top 1 player in game right now).
How to Spend Gems in Clash Royale

How should I spend Gems in Clash Royale?

At first, let’s take a look at our Chests, which can be found or buy in Clash Royale:
NameUnlocking timeGem TimerDescription
Silver Chest3 Hours18 GemsFewest Cards, most common. You can get Rare, Epic or even Legendary Cards but they are extremely rare.
Golden Chest8 Hours48 GemsPretty popular, you can usually get 1 after every 5 wins. You can always obtain Rare Cards from Golden Chest. Epic and Legendary Cards are pretty rare. The Crown Chest is most likely the same as the Golden Chest
Giant Chest12 Hours72 GemsThe Giant Chest is a overstuffed version of the Golden Chest. You will obtain a lot of common cards, a few Rare Cards and a small chance of Epic/Legendary Cards.
Magical Chest12 Hours72 GemsYou can get a few Epic and Legendary Cards from Magical Chest. How sweet!
Super Magical Chest24 Hours144 GemsTons of Common and Rare Cards, couples of Epic Cards, a few Legendary Cards!

To read more about Chests, you can take a look at here.

I don’t want to buy any Gem!

If you don’t want to purchase any Gem and want to be Free-to-play in Clash Royale.
Your goal in game should be getting level 3 Epic Cards, level 6 Rare Cards and level 8 Common Cards, along with getting to Arena 7 to unlock all Cards. This is very attainable for free-to-play players. In order to do that, you should:
  • You are not going to make regular purchases because this is free-to-play. Save your Gems religiously and use them for 1-2 game-changing buys in the future.
  • Use 500 Gems to purchase 10,000 Gold. You can save up to 100 Gems over the 1,000 Gold Bundle by doing this. Use Gold to upgrade your Cards, soon, you will find it extremely hard to have enough Gold in your progression.
  • Don’t forget to visit Shop daily, spend your Gold to purchase a few Rare Cards everyday as the first ones are very cheap, you can even donate them and make profit. You can purchase the Epic card If you are really looking for it.
  • Just focus on only one Epic card you really want. Buy it 6 times and you can get it to level 3. That is 2,000 x 6 = 12,o00 Gold.
Buying Big Chests are very inefficient because you are not guaranteed to get what you want. Also, after that, you may even don’t have enough Gold to upgrade the cards you opened.

I can sometimes buy Gems

  • A single purchase of Gems can last for weeks or even months before you are out of Gems.
  • After purchasing Gems, you should immediately buy a bundle of Gold (either 10,000 Gold or 100,000 Gold). Just save the rest of your Gems.
  • Use Gems to open Chests when you are full of Chests.
The most common complaint I have seen so far in Clash Royale is players feel blocked they the chest row is totally full. 1 Gem in Clash Royale is roughly a penny so you are paying a quarter to open every Silver Chest. It’s better than opening Chests in shop. Opening Chests when your Chest row is full is much cheaper (it’s 50% discount on Chests). You need to spend 80-120 Gems to buy Golden Chests in the Shop but you just need to spen 48 Gems to speed up the timer. At Arena 8, speeding up the Magical Chest just costs 72 Gems, that’s over 90% cheaper than buying in the Shop.
If you want to optimize this a bit, open the Silver Chests during the day and save Gold, Giant or Magical Chests for overnights as you can get better discount for better Chests.

When Should I Buy Chests in the Shop?

Although buying Chests in the Shop is very inefficient but it’s the fastest way to level you up and get all the cards in game.
You can reach level 5 in approximately a week of play and you can learn how to properly play the game during this time. Immediately rushing to high level is not good at all. These are the estimates of cost I did in case you want to level up asap (assuming that you can earn a few Gold everyday from the free Chests)
  • Level 5 to 6: $25 ($25 total, F2P takes 2 Weeks)
  • Level 6 to 7: $50 ($75 total, F2P takes 1 Month)
  • Level 7 to 8: $150 ($225 total, F2P takes 2 Months)
  • Level 8 to 9: $250 ($475 total, F2P takes 4 Months)
  • Level 9 to 10: $500 ($975 total, F2P takes 8 Months)
  • Level 10 to 11: $1000 ($2000 total, F2P takes 16 Months)
  • Level 11 to 12: $2000 ($4000+ total, F2P takes 32 Months)

When should I buy Cards in the Shop?

Although it depends on your Gold but first 3 Common Cards, first 2 Rare Cards and the first Epic Cards are definitely worth the money. If you have purchased 100,000 Gold with Gems, getting the 2nd Epic Card for 3,600 Gold is also pretty worth it. It’s much better than waiting for the next time you see it in the Shop (about 1 month). Sometimes, I buy Rare Cards up to 150 Gold If it’s a good card and Common Cards up to 20 Gold If I really want to upgrade it.

Clan Donations?

Just donate whenever you can. You need Gold and XP more than Cards. I did write about this before, you can earn up to 4200 Gold every week If your Clan is active. You can read more about that at here.

Okay so that’s it. I hope you enjoyed this guide. Please share it with your friends and Clan mates If you found this guide helpful, that will help this blog a lot as Clash Royale is just released in Global today!

Super Magical Chest in Clash Royale

Okay so I have received a lot of questions about the Super Magical Chest in Clash Royale lately. Let’s take a look at this big baby today. I am going to explain everything about it for you!
Clash Royale Super Magical Chest

Everything about Clash Royale Super Magical Chest

  • This chest contains a lot of more rewards than all other ones (Silver, Gold, Magical,…).
  • All of the chests don’t drop randomly, they follow a certain pattern (you can read more at here), except this chest. The Super Magical Chest drops randomly. I have been playing Clash Royale for about 4-5 hours everyday since the last update but haven’t gotten this chest yet, while a lot of new level 3-4 players got it. That’s all about random as far as I can say at this time.
What does the Super Magical Chest contain?
A lot of stuffs! But they are fully based on the Arena when you open it. I have a chart here for you so you can imagine it easier:
