Clash Royale star levels & Star Points explained – What do they do?


Upgrading the star levels for your Clash Royale cards using Star Points is a fun little way of flaunting higher-level cosmetics on the in-game characters. However, there are a few points that you should remember when upgrading your Clash Royale Star Levels.

Star Points, used to upgrade Clash Royale Star Levels, are unlocked once you reach King Level 6. However, acquiring enough Star Points to upgrade every character card to its highest level is a very time-consuming process. Therefore, we highly recommend that you upgrade the Star Levels only for those cards which you use extensively in your decks.

Not all cards can be upgraded to level two or level three, with some maxing out at two stars, and others at one. However, the release of more Clash Royale star levels is expected to happen with future updates. Until that happens, star level three is the highest level available for only a few specific characters in the game.

What do Clash Royale star levels reward?

Star levels in Clash Royale are purely for cosmetic purposes. This means, upgrading a specific card’s star level will only alter their in-game visual appearance and nothing else.

Other than that, you will need a specific amount of Star Points to upgrade a card’s star level to a specific point. Having said that, the cost of Star Points is the same for every card at any given specific level. Here’s a chart that shows how many Star Points you will need to upgrade at which level.
