Who is Clash Royale Princess?

A legendary hero added to Clash Royale back in 2016, Clash Royale Princess is a troop character that costs three elixirs to deploy. She focuses on unleashing ranged attacks with her fire arrows, and is best used to disperse swarms of smaller enemies and draw large enemies away from your weaker towers.

How do I unlock Clash Royale Princess?

Like any other legendary hero, you can only unlock Clash Royale Princess by finding her in a legendary or higher chest. However, to unlock the chance to find her, you must first complete the story mission Spall Valley in Arena 5. To improve Princess, you have to find additional cards in legendary chests or higher once you’ve already unlocked her.

What is the best Clash Royale Princess deck?

While Clash Royale Princes is a fantastic and versatile character, she isn’t that strong on her own, so your best bet is to team her up with other brute force characters or with certain buffs. Princess can bait swarms of characters away from their lane, so the best strategy is to use her on the opposite side as your weakest tower while using your tank characters in the other lane.

Princess’s range is good – in fact, she’s the only character who can take down a crown tower on her own, but this is pretty difficult to pull off. Below we’ve listed a few potential decks that make use of her fantastic ranged abilities and balance it out with other tanks, buffs, or ideal counterparts to her specific type of attacks.

How do I counter Clash Royale Princess?

The simplest and easiest way to counter the Princess is with the lgo. It can’t be baited and its wide coverage means that, as long as you use it in the right lane, you have the potential to dish out some serious damage. The log can also damage the tower and push back any other troops in that lane, making it a very important play.

Similarly, Arrows are a great counter as they can usually reach the Princess and deal damage to the tower. Just be careful as you may need them for other swarms later on. Finally, the Miner is a good potential counter to the Princess. However, while they can reach her, they may get distracted with other units, and there’s no guarantee they’ll take her out. Plus, they may be needed later on, so it’s often better to save them for the last push.

Right, that’s our guide to the Clash Royale Princess! We hope this helped you out, but if you need even more great guides for fantastic mobile games, be sure to read our other coverage such as our Tower of Fantasy Ene build.
