Legendary, Epic and Super Magical Chest Cycle

Have your received your Legendary chest, yet?
The September update introduced new chests, naming Legendary chest and Epic chest. A lot of players have wondered how to get them in the chest cycle. Some of you may have already gotten them already, while others are still puzzled on how to obtain it. I got my first Legendary card from the Legendary Chest cycle and you can have your own, too!

Before spilling the beans,  you must first know that there are chest cycles in Clash Royale. Every time you win a game in Normal battles, there is a fixed chest reward waiting for you. There is a total of 240 chests in one chest cycle. And theoretically, you can complete the whole cycle in 44 days, if you can open all the chests immediately after the timer, non-stop.

The whole chest cycle contains a total of 4 Magical Chests, 4 Giant Chests, 52 Golden Chests and 180 Silver Chests. Yes, it is a lot of chests we got there. Also, the higher chest arena you get, the better rewards you receive. There is a previous guide where you can find more information about the chests in Clash Royale. You can read more about the Ultimate Chest guide – drop order and tips, here.


Above is a copy of the image where the chest’s drop cycle is shown. Try to find your place in the cycle by the sequence of chests you get. It will be a lot easier for you to know if there will be an upcoming Legendary Chest if you can track your cycle.

How to get Legendary chest?


At first, many players thought that the Legendary chest was given by a low chance rate. A lot of theories came to failure because of having no evidence to support it. However, Reddit user named iMix figured out and decoded the secret in getting Legendary chest.

Legendary chest contains 1 Legendary card in any arena.

He claimed that the Legendary chest is not given in a random order. You must complete some criteria for you to receive one. The first important factor is you have to gain 2000 trophies. Then you must complete 2 chest cycle before getting your Legendary chest. 2 chest cycles means 480 chests to open! It will take you about 3 months to complete!

However, there is an exception. If you happen to be in Arena 9 – Legendary Arena, you don’t have to wait for 2 chest cycle to obtain your Legendary Chest. You can get your reward faster!

Players who finish the whole cycle by staying in Arena 9, without falling to lower arenas, will get a Legendary chest in just 1 cycle! It’s a good reward for players who are in the Legendary arena! Just be reminded that bouncing between arenas will forfeit the cycle. You will be put to the normal waiting cycle of 2 chest cycles (480 chests) before getting the Legendary chest.

What about Epic Chest?


Good news, because Epic chest always comes out after the Legendary chest. Meaning, you have to pass the same criteria in the Legendary chest to get an Epic chest. You have to get 2000 trophies first, then complete the 2 cycles.  Same applies when you are able to complete the cycle while in Arena 9. Legendary arena players will get both Legendary and Epic Chest in just single cycle.

Epic Chest contains 10 epic cards.

I also received my Epic chest right after getting the Legendary chest. I was jumping for joy and I really thought I was extremely lucky to get them both at the same time.


Super Magical Chest


Super Magical Chest has the highest chance to get a Legendary card from all the normal chest. It also gives more than any other type of chest can give.

Arena     Cost     Gold     Total cards    Guaranteed cards
1 1,600 960-1,200 180 6 Epics + 36 Rares
2 2,100 1,296-1,620 243 8 Epics + 48 Rares
3 2,500 1,632-2,040 306 10 Epics + 61 Rares
4 2,800 1,920-2,400 360 12 Epics + 72 Rares
5 3,100 2,208-2,760 414 13 Epics + 82 Rares
6 3,400 2,496-3,120 468 15 Epics + 93 Rares
7 3,700 2,784-3,480 522 17 Epics + 104 Rares
8 4,600 3,648-4,560 684 22 Epics + 136 Rares

Super Magical Chest is a little different compared to all the other chest that have a fixed order of reward.

First, you must reach 400 trophies  for you to be eligible in getting the Super Magical Chest. Next is you have to get a total of 500 chests. That’s more than 2 chest cycles which only have 480 chests.

Now, here’s the tricky part, after completed opening all 500 chests, the Super Magical Chest can be given to you anytime after that. Yes, there’s no definite order when you’ll get it. You will receive the Super Magical Chest before completing another set 500 chests.

Getting the Super Magical chest early is purely a matter of luck. So, it’s not advisable to keep track of your Super Magical chest in your cycle. It will be very confusing, not only that it doesn’t have a fix rotation, it also exceeded the number of normal chest cycles, having 500 chests instead of 480 chests, that’s 2 cycles and 20 chests.

For clarity, here’s an example. If I completed opening the 500 chest cycle, it goes back to 1 again. I can receive the Super Magical chest anytime before I reach opening the 500th chest. And if you’re really unlucky, worst case scenario is that you will receive your Super Magical chest at the 499th.

More tips

• Always keep opening your chests consistently. After unlocking one chest, you should unlock the next one immediately to finish the chest cycle faster. Setting your notification on will help you keep updated with the recently opened chest.

• Use the chest cycle drop list to find where you are in the current cycle. It will help you keep on track on how long you will have to wait to get an upcoming chest, not only Legendary chest but even Giant and Magical chest. So that you can grind your way to the higher arena once you know that a good chest reward will come up, next.

• Always try to stay in a higher arena. The higher the arena you are in, the better rewards you can get from the chest.

• If you want to experiment and try out different decks, just make sure that your chest inventory is full. That way, you won’t get lower arena chest reward if you get demoted from your current arena.

• Lastly, don’t worry about playing even if you don’t have a slot in your chest inventory. You will still receive the chest in the same order. Meaning, you will still get the next chest. You just have to finish opening a chest so that after you received your reward from a normal battle, you will get the next chest in your available inventory.

Hope you get your legendary chest if you haven’t already 😉

  17. The legendary and epic chest is incorrect, I only have 1700 trophies and I still have the epic chest in my shop right now, and I’ve had the legendary offer before

    • I think is because clash royale updates
      Onces clash royale have a new update, your chest cycle will restart

  18. I am currently in hog mountain (arena 10) with 3200 trophies and I haven’t received a super magical chest in a very long time and have never received a legenary chest but I have received 2 epic chest one I got a few months ago and I just received one 3 days ago and still no legendary chest

    • The Supermagical Chest doesn’t drop at the end of the 500-chest cycle, it will drop once every 500 chests BUT in a random position in the cycle. So you might get your first Supermagical Chest at your first win or at your 500th win, or somewhere inbetween, depending on your luck.

    • This isn’t true I am arena six and I got a legendary chest in my shop today. I don’t have 2000 trophies and I definitely haven’t completed the chest cycle twice

      • Getting Legendary chest in a shop and for free is DIFFERENT! In a shop you have to spend Gems (real money to buy gems). And shop legendary chest is garbage! Watch this:

        • Why is it a scam? A Legendary in the shop cost 40k gold. 500 gems is only 10k gold. The chest says, 1 Legendary, nothing else so it is your fault for thinking that there were more cards in there. Gems are pretty much worthless in this game unless you have an endless amount of them. Buying a Legend for 10k is good business if you ask me.

          • With a legendary chest you don’t know what you will get out of it, but if you buy a legendary from the shop using gold, you get to choose what legendary you get.

  19. My highest trophies is 2709 and i have won 604 games so far. which means i have completed more than 2 chest cycles, but i havent received a super magical, legendary or epic chest yet. why is that.

    • The 2 chest cycle legendary chest thing is rubbish, I just received mine and I only have 397 wins and I am at 2400 cups

      • Are you seriously that stupid ?? It is one supermagical one epic and one legendary every 2 cycles. It can appear and replace any chest within that 480 chest cycle it does not mean at you have to get to the end then get them you can get if at any point randomly. Once you have obtained your epic , legendary and super magical aswell as fully complete the 480 chest cycle your next chest cycle will begin and then at any point from chest 0-480 can you get the legendary epic or supermagical !!!! You pack of simple fucks😡😡😡😡 does that make fucking sense ???? !!!!

    • Because you have won 604 matches, but maybe during many of your wins, your chest slot might be full. You have not won the chests, but only the matches.

    • Um, 604 wins NOT 604 chests. When your chest bar is full you dont get a chest. So you probably didnt complete the cycle

  20. I got 2 sparky both from clan chest on being on top of boh chest s.is their any criteria that i should remain on top of chest fr legendary

  21. I ended up dropping myself down from arena 7 to arena 2, while I was in arena 2, I got a Legendary chest. (I got the Princess.) I didn’t get an Epic chest after it.

    • @ ModestMismagius

      Why would you drop to Arena 2 – this makes no sense?

      To face weaker opponents? Ok, but your chests at arena 2 are much worse than at arena 7… you get less cards, less gold, etc … makes no sense at all … do explain


  22. Today I just got a legendary chest but I’m not battling until my chest lots are open because if I win I’m not going to get the epic chest. The epic chest comes after the legendary chest.

    • This is false. If you keep battling when you can’t get any more chests, it will not skip those chests you are supposed to get if you win. Instead, the cycle pauses and stays in place until you can obtain more chests. Than you will get your epic chest.

  23. Thus might be kind if wrong because I received an epic chest before I got 2k trophies (I haven’t gotten a legendary chest till now) but both of them have appeared in my shop for more than one time so I guess it depends on your current position in the chest cycle,I don’t know about smc but I guess legendary chest appears If you are literally at the end of 2 cycles and doesn’t matter how many chest you opened because it might be possible and you started at 238 so in 2 wins one of you cycle is compley right? And then you need to complete the other one so that might be the reason that many people receive the legendary chests in lower arenas,since your start is random

  24. And Ive already gone through the chest cycle 3 times and the SMC never appeared, and so far I only got 1 legendary and Epic Chest, and im in arena 10

  25. So why did I get my friend a Legendary chest when he only had 88 wins and he was in Royale Arena?
    Aka as less than the “cycle”

  26. I got an epic chest right after a sliver but I never won a legendary from battle. I got a gold chest right after but I still haven’t unlocked the epic chest

  27. I’m in arena 8 and I got my first legendary chest from a battle in October and my second just a week ago so it doesn’t take 3 months. What’s odd is that I didn’t get an epic chest right after getting the second legendary chest but I ended up getting a golden chest.

  28. i got 6 lagendaries by pure luck and first ice wizard was in silver chest. most of it are in free chest though but I CANT EVEN REACH LAGENDARY ARENA (arena 9)

  29. Actually it isn’t true that epic chest comes directly after legendary cause epic chest can be got starting from reaching 1000 trophie plus i got my epic chest 2 days before getting my legendary and not after it

  30. There are applications to track progresssion in the cycle of clash royal.
    It’s “Chests Cycle”, avaible on the market SlideMe.

  31. According to the post we need to win 480 matches in arena 7 to recieve a legendary chest but I got one today and my total win is 370.

  32. This Article is BS ive start playing 1month and 2 weeks ago…i was lucky to recv an SMC in Arena 6 and was a couple chest after y receive my 2nd giant chest and bought a legendary chest from the shop in the same arena later..just got to arena 8 yesterday..im a casual player btw…came here to see if there are news about the leg chest and smc to be in the cycle or are random as most ppl says…but all the info written here is FAKE

  33. I got an epic chest but no legendary chest, epic must not come after legendary chest all the time. Is this talking about when they appear in the shop or drop from battles

  34. I don’t know how but I actually got a second legendary chest just 4 days after getting my first legendary and epic chest. The second one didn’t come with the epic chest and I managed to get a sparky card from both legendary chests. I now have a level 2 sparky!

  35. I have done my chests nonstop I was in arena 9 the whole time this update came out no legendary or epic chest. BTW: I have been in legendary arena from the beginning of the summer of 2016 and have no legendary NOT ONE AND PEOPLE ASK ME WHY I USE THE MOTAR AND ROYALE GIANT BECAUSE I HAVE NO LEGENDARIES.
