Beginners Guide To Chests
In order to collect trophies, you’ve got to have a competitive deck. In order to have a competitive deck, you need to ensure your troops are as upgraded as possible. There’s a huge difference between a level one Goblin Tower and a level two Goblin Tower- just as there’s a competitive edge when your level two Witch is fighting a level one Witch. The average level your troop deck determines if you’re going to win or lose a battle, and the only way you can upgrade is by collecting cards from Chests.
While all chests do nothing but good for your deck, not all chests are created equal. Here is your guide to the different kinds of chests, and when you should be opening them.
Free Chests generate whether you’re winning or losing consistently. Ever four hours a new one matures and is ready to open. You can collect up to two of these before the auto-generation stops, so be sure to get onto Clash Royale whether you’re playing or not to make sure you have a steady stream of Free Chests (and money, and gems, and cards!).
The Silver Chest is the most commonly won chest. Like most other chests, in order to collect these babies, one has to win a single battle. The Silver Chest takes 3 hours to mature before you can open it. So once you win it, you still have three hours before you can collect any new gold, gems or cards. 3 hours is a minimal amount of time. If you play and check on your Clash Royale on a regular basis, you can open three or four of these a day.
Although the Silver Chest is quick to mature, you are only guaranteed up to 50 gold, and six cards. Typically you only receive 40-45 gold with the Silver Chest, so make sure you’re donating cards in your clan if you’re close to making an upgrade and mainly relying on Silver Chests to make that happen.
The Crown Chest is the most unique chest of them all because in order to earn one you must collect 10 crowns from Clash Royale battles. You can win anywhere between zero and three crowns per battle, so this chest is a little more difficult to collect. A crown chest almost always has between 2-5 gems in it, circa 100 gold, and it typically has somewhere between eight and fifteen cards. It’s certainly is a great reward after demolishing 10 opponent towers.
The Golden Chest, like the Silver Chest, is commonly won after well fought, successful battles. This chest takes eight hours to mature for opening, which makes it a great chest to open just before getting some shut-eye. When you wake up in the morning, you will happily open your eyes to 140-160 gold, 2-3 gems, and 20 cards. Two of the cards in the Golden Chest are guaranteed to be rare. Can someone say upgraded Goblin Hut in the morning?
The Giant Chest is a big treat to win after a well fought, successful battle. It takes 12 hours to mature for opening, but when it’s ready it has between 1100-1300 gold, 160 cards (16 of which are guaranteed rare!), and 2-3 gems. It may take all day to mature for opening, but when it does open, expect a big payday and the possibility to upgrade a few of your troops in your deck.
Even more rare than the Giant Chest, the Magical Chest appears fleetingly after knock-out, yet highly competitive battles. The Magical Chest takes 18 hours to mature, but once it’s ready you get 400-500 gold, and 60 cards. Two of the cards in the Magical Chest are guaranteed to be Epics, and 12 are guaranteed to be rare. The Magical Chest is a great way to boost your strongest, keystone troops.
Super Magical Chest
The Super Magical Chest is the holy grail of all chests in Clash Royale. It takes an entire day to mature: that’s 24 hours before you can open it. Yet, once it’s opened the lucky Clash Royale player receives between 3480 and 4350 in gold, and a whopping 522 cards. 17 of those cards are guaranteed to be epic cards, and 104 are guaranteed to be rare cards. This chest, although very rarely available by winning a battle, can be bought in the Clash Royale store for 2800 gems. This is something worth saving your gems for if you’re on a quest to be the best.
