How to unlock the Elixir Golem in Clash Royale

The Elixir Golem is a rare-rated troop, which means you can find its cards in Silver and higher-rated chests. On top of that, you can also purchase Elixir Golem cards from the store in exchange for coins or gems.

Having said that, you should note that you can only unlock specific troops in Clash Royale after reaching their respective Arenas.

  • In order to progress through each Arena in Clash Royale, you’ll have to participate in multiplayer matches and collect trophies by winning.

You can unlock the Elixir Golem after reaching the Serenity Peak Arena at 4,600 trophies. The Serenity Peak is the penultimate Arena in the game right now, so reaching it won’t be an easy task for you to accomplish. However, that’s not all, because you’ll be able to receive multiple copies of the card to ensure you can upgrade the troop to increase its overall power.

  • Elixir Golem, Healer, Electro Dragon, Heal Spirit, Night Witch, Inferno Dragon, Rage, Tornado – Elixir Golems always prioritize attacking buildings, which is why it is important to send backup troops that can clear out the enemy’s defenses quickly. Having a Healer continuously provides healing for the damage soaking troop, allowing them to survive for a very long period without feeding an elixir advantage to the enemy. The average elixir cost of this deck is 3.3, making it fairly efficient in most scenarios.
  • Elixir Golem, Barbarian Barrel, Healer, Bomb Tower, Baby Dragon, Fireball, Tornado, Electro Dragon – This deck is one of the strongest defensive Elixir Golem strategies that you can deploy in the game. On top of featuring extremely high sustain with the Elixir Golem and Healer combo, the additional firepower presented by the Baby and Electro Dragons is truly terrifying to attack against. The additional presence of the Bomb Tower also ensures that those pesky Hog Riders can’t make a direct threat on your towers no matter what the situation might be. Featuring an average elixir cost of 3.6, this deck is a definite go-to for defensive plays against highly offensive line-ups.

Although Elixir Golems always prioritize targeting buildings, these troops have extremely slow movement speeds. Having said that, as long as you ensure to use your Elixir Golem in sync with your support troops, you should be able to try out various strategies with your own decks.
