Magic Items - Clash Royale 2021 Q1 Update

A new game client update is coming (tentatively next week it’s live now!). Along with balance changes — which we cover in a separate post — Clash Royale will introduce Magic Items, a new group of items intended to help players with progression.

By far, one of the most frustrating aspects for players in Clash Royale has been the time it takes to upgrade an account and their decks. This update intends to address this by making it easier to upgrade cards and decks, especially when the meta shifts due to balance changes.

Changes in progression aren’t only useful to new players, but they can also be very helpful for maxed players during new card releases.

Wild Cards

Magic Items - Wild Cards UX Flow

  • Converts into any card that you have unlocked
  • Comes in 4 types for each rarity
  • Inventory Cap
    • If a player is near his/her storage cap and collects a stack of Wild Cards, he/she can collect the wild cards over their storage cap.
    • If a player has maxed his/her inventory and collects a stack of Wild Cards, then the cards will be automatically converted to a random card of the same rarity.
    • If that random card is already maxed, then the player will receive the gold Gold equivalent, similar to how it is now when player receive cards for any of their maxed cards.
Overflow
Common Wild Card 5 gold Gold
Rare Wild Card 50 gold Gold
Epic Wild Card 500 gold Gold
Legendary Wild Card 20 000 gold Gold

Book of Cards

  • Instantly fill up all remaining cards required to the next upgrade level
  • Comes in 5 types: 4 for each rarity, and a special “Book of Books” for any rarity
  • The maximum value for a book is when you upgrade cards from Level 12 to Level 13, especially when you have just upgraded the card to Level 12 and want to get to Level 13 immediately.
  • You don’t get any “left-over” cards
  • Example:
    • Your Knight is Level 12 and at 2000/5000.
    • You use a Common Book of Cards to fill up the remaining 3000 cards needed.
    • When you’ve used your book, it will fill out the remaining 3000, but you won’t get 2000 extra cards converted to Gold even though technically the book could give you a maximum of 5000 cards.
    • Important: filling out the rest of the cards does not upgrade the card to Level 13. You still need 100,000 Gold to complete the card upgrade.
Max Value
Common Book 25 000 gold Gold
Rare Book 50 000 gold Gold
Epic Book 100 000 gold Gold
Legendary Book 400 000 gold Gold
Book of Books 400 000 gold Gold
  • Books have a maximum inventory storage of 1.
  • If you try to collect a Book and you are over the limit, you’ll get a Warning Dialog.
  • If you proceed, your book will be converted to its overflow value.
  • All the books give 100 Gem gem for overflows.
  • Considering the maximum value of a book could be as much as 400,000 Gold gold, make sure you know what you are doing before collecting!
Overflow
Common Book 100 gem Gem
Rare Book 100 gem Gem
Epic Book 100 gem Gem
Legendary Book 100 gem Gem
Book of Books 100 gem Gem

Magic Coin

  • Fills up all the Gold gold required to upgrade to the next level without using any of your Gold.
  • Maximum Value: 100,000 Gold gold when you upgrade cards from Level 12 to Level 13.
  • Overflow: 100 Gem gem

Chest Key

  • Instantly finishes a Ladder chest opening timer
  • The longest time to open a chest is 24 hours, which costs 144 Gems to open immediately
  • This means that the maximum value of a Chest Key is 144 Gems gem
  • Overflow: 100 Gold gem

Saving Magic Items for New Cards

Magic Items - You can max a new card on release day with Wild Cards and a Book
You can max a new card on release day with Wild Cards and a Book, except for Rares

Magic Items can be useful to upgrade new cards after they are released. Finding clanmates willing to exchange their cards is a problem of the past. If you’ve accumulated some Magic Items, maxing a new card is just a few taps away.

Let’s look at the most extreme example: Legendary cards. You'll need a total of 35 to fully upgrade a Legendary card:

Cards Needed
= Total - 1
= 2 + 4 + 10 + 20 - 1
= 35

If you’ve managed your upgrades correctly, this can be solved without passing the inventory limits. A Magic Book can help you with the last 20 for the max level, and the first 15 can be exchanged with the Legendary Wild Cards; you can have up to 20, and you'll only need 15.

Rare Cards will need additional book

Cards of all rarities can be upgraded with Wild Cards and a book… EXCEPT for Rare cards. The storage maximum for Wild Cards is 1000, and is unfortunately 585 short of the 1585 required. So for Rare cards, you will need to either have 585 regular cards, or use an additional Book for it.

Thankfully, Pass Royale comes with a Book of Books. So if you have saved up a Rare Book of Rares, or have the Book of Books from the previous season, then you’d still be able to max the card on Release Day!

Wild Cards in Chests

ild Cards in Chests - Clash Royale 2021 Q1 Update
Every chest has a chance of getting Wild Cards, with Legendary King’s Chest having guaranteed cards.
  • All chests have a chance of wild cards starting in Arena 4
  • The likelihood of Wild Cards appearing in chests is based on the Arena Level of the chest.
  • The King’s Chest and the Legendary King’s Chest give a guaranteed amount of wild cards instead of using a probability / chance factor.

Regular Chests

  • All the cards you get in chests have a chance of becoming Wild Cards of that same rarity.
  • The likelihood of each card becoming a Wild Card depends on the rarity and the level of your King Tower.
  • For example:
    • If your chest gives you a Legendary card, there’s a 25% chance that it will be a Legendary Wild Card.
    • If your chest gives you a Rare card and you are Level 10, there’s a 7.5% chance that it will be a Rare Wild Card.
  • This means that value of the chests does not change, but now you have a chance of getting cards as Wild Cards instead, and will help your upgrade progress.

Wild Cards on Trophy Road

  • Card rewards (or draft choices) on the trophy road are replaced by Wild Cards of the same rarity.
  • There is no change in value or resources because the values are not changed.
  • This means that player will now have better control of how they would like to progress.
  • Inventory Limits are checked.

Magic Items: End Note

It may not be the most exciting news for players who already have maxed accounts, but remember that players thriving is what drives new content for everyone. The best new content is the content every player can enjoy!

Free Magic Items Gift at Launch

Update: 2021-03-30

In our original article, we’ve published that the free gift at launch will be a Book of Books. At launch, the free gift in-game is an Epic Book and a Magic Coin.

We've reached out to Supercell and found out what happened.

The information we've published was based on an internal game design document provided to us by Supercell. Unfortunately, it appears that the document was outdated.

Supercell made the decision to launch with an Epic Book and Magic Coin, as Gold is more valuable to players looking to progress their account.

We hope that you'll enjoy the magic gift and the update!
