I’m a free-to-play type. This is my 4th month playing Clash Royale and already got 4 Legendary cards – 1 from Silver Chest, 1 from Magical Chest, and 2 from 2 crown chests. I can say that I’m on the lucky side.

How to get  a Legendary card?

  • Open a chest. Any chest contains Legendary card. Each chest type has a different drop rate.
  • You can obtain 1 Legendary card from Legendary Chest which lies within chest cycle and can be bought via Shop’s offer with 500 Gems.
  • Legendary card is available in the shop in Arena 9 so you can buy them from the shop using Gold. Each card costs 40,000 Gold.
  • Buy Super Magical Chests using Gems, which has the highest drop rate for Legendary card. As far as I know, you get one card from open every 2 or 3 Super Magical chests. The higher Arena you are in, the drop rate from each chest increases.
