Legendary cards are the best cards in Clash Royale and today we are going to rank the best legendary cards in Clash Royale 1-12! I’ve done this post before where there were only 10 legendary cards which you can view here. Lets start the new 2017 rankings!
How the Legendary Cards are Ranked
When ranking these cards we put a lot of thought and effort into what makes the best legendary card the best. We are considering a variety of different ways to rank which are order in importance as follows:
- Cost/Damage Ratio (is the card worth it?)
- Strength on defense and offense
So now that you know what we are judging on, lets go ahead and get into the rankings, starting with number 12!
Legendary Card Rankings
What else would be at the bottom of this list but sparky? Sparky is BY FAR the worst legendary, being almost impossible to use well. The problem with sparky is that too many units in Clash Royale are able to reset it, making it extremely hard to get a shot off, let alone a shot off on the tower. Sparky needs a major rework in order to be viable in this game again.
#11- Inferno Dragon
Similarly to sparky, the inferno dragon is bad because so many units are able to reset it now. The inferno dragon is a step above sparky though, working pretty well with LavaLoonion decks. If you can get the inferno dragon to lock onto the tower, that tower will be gone in a matter of seconds! Dangerous card, but it’s a bit too easy to counter.
Quite honestly, the lumberjack isn’t that bad of a card, but compared to other legendary cards, he isn’t the greatest. The main problem with the lumberjack is that he isn’t legendary enough! There are other cards like the mini-P.E.K.K.A. and knight that can do what he does and they are only rare and common cards.
#9- Ice Wizard
Despite ranking 9th out of the legendary cards, the ice wizard is pretty good! He is a great support card, slowing all units down that try to intercept your push. The reason why the ice wizard hasn’t become super OP is that he doesn’t do a lot of damage as his slowing aspect is his sealing point when in use.
#8- Lava Hound
The lava hound certainly ranks as one of the best tanks in Clash Royale. However, these are the legendary card rankings and competition is stiff! The hound offers a lot of value, especially when it pops and spawns a bunch of lava pups which can do crazy amounts of damage. This is a really good card if you like slow moving decks.
The princess is the only card in Clash Royale that can’t be shot by an arena tower and it certainly makes her powerful. Despite having the log be one of the most popular cards in the game, the princess is great, both on defense and offense. Being able to splash down units makes her great against zap bait decks, but also makes her great to pair with tanks to take down swarm units.
As recently as a few weeks ago, the bandit would have ranked in the bottom three of this list. But, ever since the most recent balance changes, the bandit has been a great card! She is kind of like a smaller prince, but her selling point is that she is invincible during her charge! Put this in quick cycle decks and you’ve got an awesome card!
The miner is the only one of the 5 original legendary cards to rank within the top 5. The miner certainly owns his spot though, being the cheapest tank card in Clash Royale. This legendary card specializes in quick chip pushes and is one of the primary counters to the elixir collector for a huge elixir trade.
#4- Night Witch
I bet most of you thought that the night witch would be coming in at number one, but the night witch is a bit too easy to counter to fill in our number 1 spot. However, the night witch is still a GREAT card, being one of the best support cards in Clash Royale. She is perfect for support since she does ground damage while her bats focus on the air troops.
Graveyard is very, very, very strong, but not OP! While its not impossible to counter the graveyard, with the right spells, the graveyard becomes an almost perfect damage dealer. Usually, combined with a tank, the skeletons can amount fast, being able to take out a tower within just a few seconds.
The log is probably the most popular spell in Clash Royale and it certainly should be! With the popularity of the princess, it is nice to have a quick, direct counter to her. Not only does it counter the princess, but it is also perfect against skeleton army, dart goblin, or goblin gang. Even on defense, the log shines, being able to push back hordes of troops.
#1- Electro Wizard
And our number one legendary card and probably number one card in Clash Royale is the electro wizard! Zap is one of the best cards in the game and the electro wizard shoots zaps! Another great support card, the electro wizard can be paired with literally any tank and succeed, mostly due to his two shot ability and power to shut down inferno dragon and tower.
So that is going to wrap it up for our legendary card rankings for June of 2017! Check out our other rankings of the other rarities of cards elsewhere on the site. Thanks for reading and comment below what you think of the rankings!
