Is it worth spending my gems on buying Gold in the shop? The answer is NO, but why? Here in this post, you will learn how to get the most out of your Gems and maximize their value.
You have many options for spending your Gems, but do you know which one is the best?
How should I spend my Gems in Clash Royale?
That’s the big question.
There’s shop Special Offers, Daily Deals that cost gems to buy Cards or Chests (NEVER BUY THAT!!!), also Legendary Chests (which gives you a random Legendary card for 500 gems, so it’s not worth the try in my opinion), etc.
In the Special Shop Offers, Clash Royale shows you the value you get from buying that (x4, x6…), but this isn’t the best option always. These values came from this: 10,000 gold is equal to 100 gems, but in my opinion, gems should be valued better as you can’t do much with 10,000 gold, but a lot with 100 gems.
Best way to spend Gems in Clash Royale
Now that we’re on the same page, how do I spend my Gems to get the most value out of them? The answer will be always the same, Challenges and Global Tournament.
Here are the actual rewards of those:
To enter a Classic Challenge you have to spend 10 Gems and the rewards are the following:
|Number of victories||Total Prize||Guaranteed cards
|12||2,000||100||1 Epic + 10 Rares|
To enter a Grand Challenge, you have to spend 100 Gems and the rewards are the following:
|Number of victories||Total Prize||Guaranteed cards|
|4||4,000||130||1 Epic + 13 Rares (30% chance to obtain a second epic)|
|5||5,000||185||1 Epic + 18 Rares (85% chance to obtain a second epic)|
|6||6,200||250||2 Epics + 25 Rares (50% chance to obtain a third epic)|
|7||7,600||330||3 Epics + 33 Rares (30% chance to obtain a fourth epic)|
|8||9,300||420||4 Epics + 42 Rares (20% chance to obtain a fifth epic)|
|9||11,500||530||5 Epics + 53 Rares (30% chance to obtain a sixth epic)|
|10||14,200||670||6 Epics + 67 Rares (70% chance to obtain a seventh epic)|
|11||17,500||860||8 Epics + 86 Rares (60% chance to obtain a ninth epic)|
|12||22,000||1,100||11 Epics + 110 Rares|
Legendary cards have a certain percentage to be obtained in the chests. To see the percentages, take a look at the following post about the Chests drop rate in Clash Royale. But in resume, if you win a grand challenge and you’re in Legendary Arena,
There are Free rewards and Bonus rewards, we’ll be touching the Bonus Rewards as are the ones obtained with 500 Gems.
|Number of Victories||Rewards|
|3||Legendary Trade Token|
|6||Epic Trade Token|
|9||Rare Trade Token|
|10||Legendary’s King Chest|
|12||Common Trade Token|
In terms of Gold Value, if we get 1 victory, the reward is worth it, because a Legendary Chest costs 500 gems but, personally, even if the Gold Value is worth it, and based on my experience, you shouldn’t get the Bonus Reward if you don’t obtain at least 10 Wins on this Global Tournament.
We cannot forget the special offers in the Clash Royale store. In them, as I have already explained, there is a value multiplier in comparison to buying gold in the store. It is for this reason that you can not always trust the offers. There are some offers that are very good and you can take them, but I do not recommend buying all offers you see.
Now I’m giving you the final tips to spend your gems:
- The best way to use your Gems is by playing Classic or Grand Challenges, especially if you’re a good player (from 4-9 victories, some shop offers will be good for you, but not if you’re a constant 10+ win player).
- For Global Tournaments, as soon as you are able to take the Legendary King’s Chest, spend 500 Gems is worth it for you, especially if you’re not a maxed player.
- I do not recommend buying Emotes on the store as they cost 250 Gems, but it’s always good to have some for BM
- For Special Challenges that cost Gems to enter, if you know that you’re able to win it on the first try and the rewards are worth it for you, just go for it. If not, I’d tell you to not play it, as it might not be useful to you.
