The Best Castle Clash: Guild Royale Tips, Tricks, and Strategies for Beginners and Newcomers
When it comes to strategy games like Castle Clash: Guild Royale, the first few days are some of the most important. This is because the initial upgrades and constructions are usually done very quickly, giving you prime opportunities to expand at a very fast pace, with the condition that this requires constant attention and monitoring to avoid downtime. Similarly, the first battles are very easy and can be completed quite quickly if you know what you’re doing. And just like with developing your base, progressing through these first few encounters is crucial for you to get a leg up in the game.
However, all these reasons pale in comparison to the true reason why progressing quickly at the beginning is so important: the peace shield that you get at the beginning only lasts for three days, which gives you 72 uninterrupted hours of breathing room to develop your city and build your forces. Afterward, your city will be completely exposed to enemy attacks, and if your defenses aren’t strong enough, you’ll become an easy target for everyone to bully and rob.
Nevertheless, while making quick progress at the beginning is crucial, it can be a bit overwhelming for new users. For this reason, we’ve decided to share a few valuable Castle Clash tips and tricks, so you can start in Guild Royale on the right track.
Play on BlueStacks to Get the Best Tools
If starting on the right track means that you’ll need to monitor your city constantly to avoid downtime and ensure that you’re always working on developing something, then this means that you’ll need to be playing Castle Clash for longer periods at first. In this sense, if you’re going to be spending some time in this game, why not go for the best comfort and experience, and play Castle Clash: Guild Royale on PC with BlueStacks?
Our Android app player has everything you might ever need to not only get started on the right track, but also to enhance your overall experience, and even to help you grow your power much faster than when playing on your phone.

Learn the Different Game Modes
Despite the first impressions, Castle Clash is not just a city-building game; this game has several different game modes to enjoy whenever you’re not hanging out and developing your city. The three main modes to enjoy here at the beginning are the following:
- Conquest: This mode is akin to tower defense, except you’re the attacker and your goal is to destroy as much of the enemy base as possible. In this mode, you can choose from your roster of available troops and heroes, and deploy them on the map to wreak havoc upon the enemy base. And for every building you take down, your destruction meter will increase, which is represented by the flame icons on the right. The more stuff you destroy, the better your rewards.
Additionally, if you win at least 15 rounds of Conquest, you will get a special reward, which resets daily. Try to complete your daily Conquest matches to speed up your progress in Castle Clash.
- Dungeon: Similar to Conquest, but with NPC enemies instead of raiding other players’ bases. And unlike Conquest, there are no daily rewards for progressing in this mode, though you get useful rewards for clearing each stage nonetheless.
- Raid: A game mode that plays like a real-time strategy card game, much like Clash Royale. In this mode, you must place units on the map in real-time so that they can march towards the enemy base, destroying everything in their way. However, each troop or unit that you deploy costs energy, a resource that generates automatically over time, with the stronger cards requiring more energy. In this sense, winning in Raids is more about proper energy management as well as being able to exploit the enemy’s vulnerabilities.
Keep in mind that, as you can see, these modes are somewhat similar in practice, but also vary greatly in their goals and objectives, at least when it comes to Raid in contrast with the other two. Nevertheless, they’re all quite important since they give resources that will help to speed up your development. Not to mention that they’re also quite fun, too, which makes it much better when you’re trying to learn.
Work on Your Chapter and Daily Quests
Aside from the main game modes, which require you to actually go to the field and participate in battles, you can also find lots of different quests and missions in Castle Clash, all of which involve many of the game’s aspects. These missions can consist of developing structures, training troops, winning in certain game modes, donating resources, and more. Moreover, for completing each mission, you can get valuable rewards like resources or other items.
While it can be fun to just focus on any of the three modes mentioned above, we strongly recommend completing these missions daily—there are only three of them and most of them can be completed in a few minutes. Moreover, when it comes to the actual Chapter Missions, these also serve as guidance and tell you what you should be focusing on currently. In this sense, if you’re just getting started and don’t really know what to do, a good idea is to check your current chapter missions and work on them.
In Raids, Focus on the Enemy Town Hall
As we mentioned above, the objective in the Raid mode is to destroy the enemy base to steal their resources. However, there may be times when the enemy is too powerful for you, and you won’t be able to destroy their entire base. If this is the case, one of the best things you can do to try and increase your earnings is to target and focus on the enemy Town Hall. This is the single most important building in their base and is the one that gives the most % of completion when you destroy it.
If you can’t clear the entire base, at least go for the high-value targets, starting with the Town Hall. And speaking of this building…
Your Town Hall is the Most Important Building in Your Base
Just like it’s the highest value target in a Raid, your Town Hall is also, true to its name, the center of operations in your base. This building, while not doing much by itself, is the one that determines the level cap of every other structure in your base. In other words, no other building can be of a higher level than your Town Hall. Not to mention that, by upgrading your Town Hall, you can also unlock new buildings and features. For these reasons, this building is, by far, the single most important structure in your base.
Whenever you’re at a loss of what to do, working on upgrading your Town Hall is always a good idea, particularly since every upgrade here also requires you to level up other buildings first, which will also help you to grow your base in a balanced manner.
Learn About the Different Heroes and Troops
In the beginning, you can beat most levels simply by deploying all your troops in one spot and watching them go to town. However, as you advance to the later stages, you might need to diversify your strategies to defeat the enemy defenses, and one of the ways in which you can diversify your approach is by actually hiring different types of troops in your army.
Despite them all performing the same function, which is walking and attacking, the different types of troops are actually designed to excel in different circumstances. For instance, the default unit, Guardians, are great against most types of enemies, particularly those who wear medium armor, while the Treants, which are unlocked later, aren’t very good at attacking, but are excellent tanks. And just like these two, every other unit in Castle Clash has its own stats and properties that make them better at certain situations than the others.
As a good way to grow your understanding of this game, we strongly suggest going to your Army Camp and reading up on the different unit types. Alternatively, check out our Castle Clash units and heroes guide if you want further guidance on this topic.
By knowing how to approach each game mode, how to farm for resources, and also the strengths and weaknesses of each unit type, you can get a solid understanding of the most important elements of the game, which in turn will allow you to grow and expand at a steady pace.
