Royal Champion Info

"Over the wall and at them! The Royal Champion is only afraid of four things, and the enemy isn't one of them. She attacks with her spear at short range and throws her shield to take down defenses once her Seeking Shield ability is unlocked!"

Royal Champion

  • Summary
    • The Royal Champion is the fourth hero in the game. Her health is not the largest but she targets defenses and can jump over Walls, much like the Hog Rider.
    • She throws her spear to attack enemy buildings.
    • She is automatically summoned once the Royal Champion Altar is constructed, which is available at Town Hall 13.
    • Like the other heroes, the Royal Champion only needs to be summoned once but will have to spend some time regenerating her health if she is damaged during a battle. If you attack a village while its Royal Champion is still regenerating, the Altar will be empty and she will not defend.
      • Like other heroes, she is not upgraded in the Laboratory but rather upgraded with a Builder.
    • The Royal Champion's regeneration time after a battle depends on how much damage she took during the battle: if she survives the battle unscathed, she will be ready to fight again immediately, but the more she is damaged, the more time she will need to regenerate. The more the Royal Champion is upgraded, the more time she will need in order to fully regenerate her health.
      • Hero regeneration after a Multiplayer Battle starts as soon as the player starts to search for a Multiplayer opponent. So, if the player spent some time searching for an opponent to attack before completing an attack, part of the regeneration will be completed by the time the player returns to his/her village. However, if the player cancels the attack by pressing "End Battle" before completing an attack, the regeneration will be reset. This effect is more noticeable in the highest leagues where a significant amount of time can be spent searching for such opponents.
    • Her Seeking Shield ability will recover a large chunk of her health and will throw a seeking shield that prioritizes defenses. It will seek four targets, dealing a large amount of damage to each, regardless of distance. Like all other Heroes, her ability gets stronger every 5th level.
      • If the ability has not been used before the Royal Champion is about to be defeated, it will by default automatically activate. However, this feature can be toggled off in the settings (by turning off "Automatically use Hero Abilities on KO").
    • She will prioritize defenses, and will bypass any other buildings to the nearest defense, if there are any remaining. She will not consider the Clan Castle as a defense, regardless of if it summons Clan Castle troops, but will consider the defense of the level 12 and 13 Town Hall and the defending Grand Warden as defenses. However, unlike other defense-targeting troops, if she becomes aware of a defending hero, Clan Castle troops, or Skeleton Trap skeletons (either by being attacked by the troops and/or heroes herself, or by being near a friendly troop under attack by those troops and heroes), she will leave her previously targeted defense (or building if there are no defenses) and instead engage with the troops and/or heroes. Once all of the engaged troops and/or heroes are defeated, she will attack the nearest defense, or building, if there are no remaining defenses.

  • Offensive Strategy
    • The Seeking Shield can one shot weak defenses such as the Cannon.
      • This allows the Royal Champion to set up funnels. Sending her like this without much backup is known as a Sui Champion.
    • Similar to the Archer Queen Walk, the Royal Champion can be assisted by multiple Healers in a Royal Champion Walk. However, due to the shorter range of the Royal Champion, the healers can easily get in range of Air Defenses.
      • As with the Archer Queen, this is useful for taking out outer buildings before the main attack.
    • Send her in with the main pack of a hybrid(Hogs and Miners) as they will tank for her and she will deal massive damage to the defenses. She also can attack heroes that are attacking the pack, and then will also follow the pack due to also targeting defenses.
    • Often it is better to send her later in the attack, where the main army is starting to lose steam getting to the back end defenses, to take out the said backend defenses. Make sure to deploy her when some of the defenses are attacking the main army.
  • Defensive Strategy
    • Place her inside the base where only tank-ish troops can make it through so she can kill them easily.
    • Defend possible places where a Sui champion is used with lots of high DPS defenses, as she has low health.
    • Use low power defenses such as the Cannon, Mortar or Archer Tower to soak up possible seeking shields, as they will protect higher value defenses.
    • The Royal Champion throws her spear very slowly, so use skeleton traps to distract her for a long time. The best place to use this is near a single target inferno tower.

  • Trivia
    • The Royal Champion was revealed with the Town Hall 13 teaser trailer, but only her chin and her waist are visible. Another teaser picture showed her blue hair and her golden headband, both times with other heroes in their full portrait, and the Royal Champion's photo being torn.
    • Her "Seeking Shield" ability is very similar to Captain America's shield throw.
    • This Hero could be named after a Clash Royale league.
    • The hero's name is labeled as 'warriorprincess' in the game's files.
    • The Royal champion's spear throw has a range of two tiles.
    • Unlike other defense-targeting troops, Royal Champion will engage against defending Clan Castle Troops and Heroes if they are nearby.
    • The Royal Champion is the only hero without a skin.
