Clash Royale Update (March 31) – Patch Notes


Magic Items are consumable items that can be used to upgrade/add progress to cards and open chests. Magic Items and the Magic Item Inventory unlock at King Level 4.


Wild Cards have the ability to take the form of any card! Provided they’re the same rarity… there’s only so much magic a card can do without getting a Wizard involved. Use Wild Cards to add upgrade progress to any card of the same rarity!


Usable on a card of the same rarity. A Book of Cards fills all remaining cards needed for the next upgrade level of that card!


The Book of Books functions the same as a Book of Cards but can be used with ANY card rarity.


A Magic Coin instantly upgrades a card without spending your gold, essentially giving you a free card upgrade. Can be used with any rarity.


The magical Chest Keys will open any locked chest in your Chest Slots – instantly!
