The Ultimate Card Level Up Guide

Clash Royale icon

One of the most rewarding (or painful) experiences in Clash Royale is the collecting and levelling up of your cards.  When I started the game, I was thrilled that it only took a single duplicate card to upgrade my cards to Level 2…. then it occurred to me that with each level up thereafter, it would cost me a LOT more….

While Clash Royale is designed so that players would need to take months (or years, if you don’t plan to spend a dime on the game) to finish upgrading their cards, some top ranked players such as 鐘培生 of HKEsports have already maxed out most of his deck!!!  If you’re wondering how many coins and cards it took him to get there, the below summarizes all the info you’ll need on that regard:

 

Common Rare Epic
Cards Needed Cost Exp Cards Needed Cost Exp Cards Needed Cost Exp
Level 2 2 5 4 2 50 6 2 400 25
Level 3 4 20 5 4 150 10 4 1000 50
Level 4 10 50 6 10 400 25 10 2000 100
Level 5 20 150 10 20 1000 50 20 4000 200
Level 6 50 400 25 50 2000 100 50 8000 400
Level 7 100 1000 50 100 4000 200 100 20000 800
Level 8 200 2000 100 200 8000 400 300 50000 1600
Level 9 400 4000 200 500 20000 800
Level 10 800 8000 400 1000 50000 1600
Level 11 2000 20000 800
Level 12 5000 50000 1600

 

Aside from being overwhelmed by the number of cards and coins it’ll take to upgrade cards beyond level 8 (50000 coins?? that’s worth like 2500 Gems!!), you’ll notice that max levels are capped off: Commons at level 12, Rares at level 10, and Epics at level 8.  The Supercell team has already adjusted the upgrade curve for Tower levels once, so I wouldn’t be surprised if these numbers will also get tweaked somehow in the near future.  Personally I would love to see item drops that would help specifically with levelling up characters like other mobile CCG games in the market.
