How to Level Up Cards in Clash Royale?

How to level up cards in Clash Royale: Clash Royale is still one of the most loved and played games on mobile. The game receives regular updates and the players always find something interesting to play in the game. The game’s main focus is on the various cards that can be collected at different arenas and deploying them to win multiplayer battles. Cards are the sole method of deploying troops, spells, and buildings onto the battlefield. Deploying cards costs Elixir, which is gradually gained during battle. Cards are primarily obtained by buying them with Gold or Gems in the Shop, or by finding them in Chests. Cards may also be received through trading or clan members fulfilling requests. Duplicate cards obtained will top off an upgrade meter. Once the meter is full, you’ll be able to upgrade the cardboard with Gold. All health and damage statistics are increased by roughly 10% per level. Cards that may spawn troops, like the Goblin Hut and Graveyard, will have their spawned troop level increased by 1 per level.

Types of Cards

There are three main forms of cards: troops, spells, and buildings. Generally, spells are temporary and might be cast anywhere on the battlefield (except The Log, Barbarian Barrel, and Royal Delivery), while buildings (which are stationary and decay over time) and troops (which can move) can only be spawned on the player’s territory (except the Miner and Goblin Drill). There also are 5 card rarities: Common (signified by grey or pale blue), Rare (signified by orange), Epic (signified by purple), Legendary (signified by a rainbow gradient), and Champion (signified by a bright yellow). Each rarity includes a different number of levels.

Common cards have 14 different levels, starting from level 1 to level 14.
Rare cards have 12 different levels, starting from level 3 to level 14.
Epic cards have 9 different levels, starting from level 6 to level 14.
Legendary cards have 6 different levels, starting from level 9 to level 14.
Champion cards have 4 different levels, starting from level 11 to level 14.

Common cards are found in chests so are the rest other cards but not so frequently. Champion cards are not found in regular chests and can only be unlocked at level 14.  Cards can be collected at different arenas but the most important thing is upgrading the cards which you regularly use in your deck. So in this article, we will discuss how to level up cards in Clash Royale.

Since cards are the only means of winning battles in Clash Royale so leveling up cards is very important. Once you get into higher arenas winning battles becomes very hard without upgraded troops.

Star levels add golden customization to the card’s appearance.
