Having said that, you should note that most troops in Clash Royale are only unlocked after reaching specific arenas by achieving a certain amount of trophies from multiplayer matches.

You can unlock the Princess troop only after you reach the Spell Valley arena in Clash Royale. You will have to accumulate a total of 1,300 trophies to enter the respective arena, and after crossing Spell Valley, you will then have a chance of finding a Princess card from all legendary chests that you open.

  • Goblin Barrel, Knight, Princess, Goblin Gang, Ice Spirit, Inferno Tower, Rocket, The Log: This deck allows you plenty of options to protect your Princess while also dealing damage to the enemy’s buildings. Although the Knight does not attack flying troops, he himself is fairly tanky to soak up damage while the Princess and Spear Goblins take down the aerial enemies. Additionally, the slowing effect from the Ice Spirit is a brilliant and cost-effective defensive tool to protect the Princess.
  • Goblin Barrel, Valkyrie, Princess, Barbarian Barrel, Fire Spirit, Inferno Tower, Skeleton Army: A highly aggressive deck that can also play out extremely well even in defensive scenarios. Apart from the distractions caused by the Skeleton Army and the Fire Spirit, the Inferno Tower gets in the way of building-targeting units while your aggressive troops lay siege on the enemy’s towers. Featuring an average elixir cost of 3.1, you can easily cycle through your character cards during the heat of battle, especially during the elixir-bonus phases.

The Princess can be extremely powerful in various scenarios of Clash Royale.

Given that the Princess is a fairly squishy troop, it is important that you have other tanky troops to act as cover and defense for the legendary archer.

As long as you make sure to have defensive troops in your deck to protect the Princess, you can try out various strategies and decks to create your own builds.

Princess troop strategies in Clash Royale

The best method to use the Princess troop card in Clash Royale is by placing tanky attackers in front of her. It is also highly effective to spawn the Princess from behind your own buildings as the troop’s massive attack range allows her to attack enemy troops from a very long distance.

Costing only 3 elixirs to deploy during battle, the Princess is an extremely useful troop when used optimally. Having said that, here are a few tips that will help you understand what makes the troop so effective in Clash Royale:

  • The Princess deals area damage, making it easier for her to take out hordes of enemies like Minions, Goblins, and Skeletons.
  • Make sure to have instant damage or tanky attackers when playing against a Princess to ensure that she cannot take down your towers from afar.
  • The massive attack range of the Princess is one of her main strengths. You should always try and place the troop accordingly on the battlefield.
  • Some of the basic counters for the Princess include Miner, The Log, Arrows, Fireball, and Poison Spell.

So, there you have it – that’s everything you need to about the legendary Princess troop in Clash Royale.
