Spending your gems on gold.

For most players spending all your on buying will be the best option. When I’m talking about most players I mean players who are spending less than $50 on buying . I am in this group of players, and after spending a lot of time evaluating the different options I found out this is the best option for me.

The reason why you want to spend your on is twofold. First the offers one epic card for sale starting at 2,000 every day. This is a great deal compared to what you would have to spend to get epic in . You can buy more than one epic card from the , but then prices go up to 3,600 for the second one and that is too expensive compared to speeding up .

Let’s look at some numbers. 10,000 costs 500 to buy, and you can spend this to buy 5 epic from the . What is awesome is that you can actually chose which you want to buy compared to just getting random from .

If you spent the same amount of on , you would get one magical chest containing in best case scenario 500 , 50 common , 15 rares and 3 epics. Using the value of 5 for a common, 50 for a rare and 2,000 for an epic we get the following value:

6,000 + 750 + 250 + 500 = 7,500

The result of 7,500 is 25% less value compared to what you would get just buying to spend on epics in the . This is also in best case scenario with arena 5 , which are the best to buy.You also have no way to decide which epics you get.

The second reason you want to spend your buying is for upgrading your . Upgrading get quite expensive at higher levels, and you really don’t want to be forced for wait to make enough when you already have enough to make the upgrade. This has happened to me a few times and it’s very frustrating looking at the ready to upgrade without having the to make it happen.

Another option would be to use your on speeding up the chest opening. I will show in the next paragraphs that this is a better option than buying , but still not as good value as buying from the with .

Spending your gems on speeding up chests.

The store only has one epic card for sale at 2,000 every day, so if you want to spend more money on the game to progress even faster, you have to look at other options. The two remaining options on spending then would be buying magical and speeding up the chest opening.

We already showed in the previous section that 500 on magical would get you 7,500 in value. If you spend the same amount of speeding up at arena 6 you would on average get 2 epics, 25 rares, 210 commons and 1600 . When we use the standard value of the , 5 for common, 50 for a rare and 2,000 for an epic we get:

4,000 + 1,250 + 1,050 + 1,600 = 7,900

This is better value than buying the magical from the store, but not as good as buying and then epic at 2,000 from the store. You can also use the opening timer more efficiently doing this, no need to check the game every 3 hours to open the silver anymore. It would now be enough to open the game very 8 hours as you will only use the timer on the 8 hour and open the silver with as soon as you get them.

Spending your money on magic chests.

This is the option for the high rollers. If you are already buying the epic from the store every day and speeding up all the you get while still having left, it’s time to buy magic . Please note that very few players will spend this much money on the game, we’re talking about those people who spend $1,000 or more on the game here. How much you are spending on speeding up obviously depends on how much you play, but I’m assuming the high rollers are also playing a lot here.

Anyways, I’d advise you to stay in arena 5 while you’re spending the majority of your buying . Arena 5 magical are superior value compared to the other you can buy, and if you are going to spend $1,000+ on Clash Royale, at least make sure you get as much value out of it as possible.

Buying cards to donate to clan.

I just thought I’d briefly talk about buying the other from the store as well. Every day you should also buy the first 4 common and 2 rare from the . For the common this will cost you 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 = 18 . You can donate these to your clan and that will bring you 1 point and 5 for each card. That is 4 and 20 total, so a 2 and 4 profit. I would say that 1 point is worth at least 1 , that’s why I advise buying 4 and not 3, even if you lose 1 to gain 1 point on the last card.

When it comes to the first 2 rare they will cost you 40 + 56 = 96 . Donating them to your clan will give you 10 and 50 for each card. That means a profit of 4 and 20 for these two first . Even though the second card costs 56 and you only get 50 from donating it, making 10 certainly makes up for it.

How to buy gems in the US.

As most of your probably know, Clash Royale is at the time of writing only released in selected countries. Therefore most US players download the game from the Canadian App store, but they then have a problem adding their credit card to buy in the game.

The most common way to solve this problem is to use iTunes Gift instead of adding a credit card directly to your account. You can buy a iTunes Gift card from the Canadian Apple store here. Buy from the Apple Online Store Do make sure that the icon on the bottom actually shows the Canadian flag before buying though, and make sure you are getting an iTunes Gift card and not an Apple Store gift card.

Some people als claim they can temporarily change the country on their US account and download the the game from the Canadian App store. Then ones the game is downloaded they change the location back to the US and use their US credit card to buy in the game. You could try this first if you don’t feel like buying gift .


  • If you’re spending $50 or less on the game, only buy which you use to buy epic in the store.
  • If you’re spending $50 – $500 use the extra to speed up .
  • If you’re spending $500 or more on the game buy magical arena 5 as well.
  • Always buy the first 4 common and 2 rare from the store to donate to your clan with profit.
