I have started playing clash royale and have gotten a few gems. What can gems be spent on other than opening chests immediately?


Gems can be used to open chests or buy gold.

  • You can buy chests with them (and they are opened immediatly), or open them. – Mathias711 Mar 14 '16 at 12:14
  • No problem, makes it easier to understand. – Bookmaster_VP Mar 14 '16 at 12:34

Gems can be spent on a few different things:

  • To unlock chests:

  • As a substitute for gold anywhere gold is used:

    This works nicely if you are missing a bit for an epic.
  • To purchase chests:
    Purchase chests purchase screen
  • And to purchase gold directly:

  • How did you've got a Super Magical Chest, anyway? – John Mar 30 '16 at 15:54
  • @John It's random. – Michael McQuade Mar 30 '16 at 17:59
  • I know, but it's extremely rare. @Michael – John Mar 30 '16 at 18:02

Well that's the main thing to spend them on - opening chests. Other than that you can go to the first tab "Shop" and buy Chests or Gold. But my recommendation is save up and only speed up chests when you need to, as buying chests is not really worth it. Maybe an occasional 1000G from gems to buy an epic (that costs 2000G) would be worth it though.

    I don't think that this is a duplicate, considering the other question is entirely opinion based and that is frowned upon on this website. – Bookmaster_VP Mar 14 '16 at 12:34
