Clash Royale is an RTS mobile game where players collect cards, have battles, win trophies, and much more. The key ingredient for this game is their collectible cards which are used for deploying troops, spells, and defenses. There are five cards rarities: Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary, and Campaign. In this guide, we help you out with how you can get the Legendary cards in Clash Royale.
How to Spend Money to Get Legendary Cards in Clash Royale
Most mobile games have pay-to-win features. Clash Royale is no exception to this and players can spend money to get Legendary cards in their inventories.
Purchasing Legendary King’s Chest
To open the King’s legendary chest, you need to have 2500 gems. This chest has a guaranteed legendary card in it with some additional coins. You can only unlock this when you are at Arena 7. However, you can purchase this chest for $9.99 from Arena Packs in the shop.
Purchasing King’s Chest
You can unlock King’s Chest in Arena 1-6 for around $4.99 in Arena Pack. You can’t get guaranteed Legendary cards from this chest. But every level of the Arena has significant chances of getting cards such as:
10% chance of getting a legendary card in Arena 4.
20% chance of getting a legendary card in Arena 5.
33% chance of getting a legendary card in Arena 6.
Purchasing a Legendary Chest
The Legendary chests are risk-free and have a guaranteed chance of obtaining a Legendary card. These chests appear once in a while in the form of offers and cost around 500 gems, with the offer lasting for about a day.
Purchasing Other Chests
The probability of getting Legendary cards is significantly low from these chests. But a slight chance of obtaining a Legendary card is better than no chance at all.
Fortune chests: You can obtain these chests from Arena 1-12. The chests contain four different cards each day, one of which is Legendary. Two of the four featured cards are guaranteed. But the chance of getting a Legendary card is up to 2%-10%. You can buy a Fortune chest for 750 gems.
Lightning chests: This chest has a probability of less than 1 percent of containing a Legendary card. Similar to the Fortune chests, these chests can also be obtained from Arena 1-12 and cost 250 gems each.
How to Get Legendary Cards for Free in Clash Royale
If you want to grind your way to the top and don’t want to rely on spending money to get the Legendary cards, there are methods that can provide you with these cards on a regular basis.
Getting More Trophies
Once you reach the Legendary tiers or have 3000 trophies, you can buy Legendary cards as they will appear in your store. In addition, you can purchase this chest for 40,000 gold. Yet another thing to check is that you’re above level 7. Otherwise, even if you have enough gold, you will not get these cards.
Also, once you reach 2000 trophies called Royal Arena, you will receive Legendary chests in your chest cycle. Furthermore, you will get Legendary King’s chests instead of King’s chests. These chests have a 100% chance of getting a Legendary card.
Join an Active Clan
After reaching Arena 8 or above, you can participate in Clan Wars. To obtain the Clan Card, you can battle 3 times with your own card. Additionally, you can build a War Deck for a War Day with your Clan Cards. On War Day, the clan with the most victories will win the war. You will receive a War Chest at the end of the War Season. Moreover, this chest is based on your clan’s league performance and the highest-rated war you fought in.
You need 10 players to start a war.
You will have a guaranteed legendary card once you reach your Legendary 1st league in War Chest.
After arriving at the Royal Arena, a legendary chest will appear every two cycles. You will get a legendary chest for every 480 battles if you have never lost. In addition, as you progress in all levels, some chests will provide guaranteed Legendary cards.
Competing in Challenges To Get Legendary Cards in Clash Royale
Clash Royale holds a challenge when they announce a new Legendary card. By entering these challenges, if you have never lost, you can have a chance of getting the free newly released Legendary card.
However, these challenges are not that easy. You need to compete with other players and get 12 wins to have that Legendary card. In addition, you have a great chance of getting 22000 gold as well.
Completing Your Quests
Quests are the in-game tasks like Open 10 Chests, Play Cards that Cost 2 Elixir or Less and Donate 4 Rare Cards, and many more. These quests are located in a bar next to the crown chest. Each quest gives you a certain number of points, which helps unlock chests.
Mega Lightning and Legendary King’s Chests: 500 points for the quest.
Legendary chests: 400 points to unlock.
Epic chests: 350 points.
Giant and magical chests: 300 points.
Lightning chests: 250 points.
Golden chests: 50 points.
These will have no opening time. The extra points you earn carry over to the next chest.
Open Silver, Crown, Gold, Giant, Magical, and Clan Chests
These chests have the least probability of getting Legendary cards. You can try your luck and hope for the best. Their costs are mentioned in the image above.
