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.

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:

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,

Global/Royal Tournament

There are Free rewards and Bonus rewards, we’ll be touching the Bonus Rewards as are the ones obtained with 500 Gems.

Number of VictoriesRewards
1Legendary Chest
210,000 Gold
3Legendary Trade Token
4Epic Chest
510,000 Gold
6Epic Trade Token
7Giant Chest
810,000 Gold
9Rare Trade Token
10Legendary’s King Chest
1110,000 Gold
12Common Trade Token
13Chest Key
1410,000 Gold
15Magical Chest

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 to buy 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.
