Heal - Clash Royale
Heal your troops to keep them in the fight! Friendly troops are healed over time while in the target area. Doesn't affect buildings.
The Heal card is unlocked from the Royal Arena (Arena 7). It is an area of effect spell that heals friendly troops. The Heal regenerates your units' health every 0.5 seconds, for a total of four pulses over the 2 seconds duration of the Heal. A Heal card costs 1 Elixir to cast.

- Heal was featured in its own Special Event Challenge, the Heal Draft Challenge, which started on 28/4/17. By achieving 6 wins, a one-time reward provided the player with Heal cards, with more Heal cards obtainable at 12 wins as another one-time reward.
- The Heal card was added to the game on 1/5/2017.
- On 12/6/17, a Balance Update made it so that multiple Heals now stack.
- On 11/8/17, a Balance Update decreased its duration to 2.5 seconds (from 3 seconds). This also fixed inconsistencies where the Heal healed either six pulses or seven pulses; it will now pulse exactly five times, in effect decreasing its effectiveness by two-sevenths.
- On 20/6/18, a Balance Update increased the Heal's radius to 4 (from 3). It also moved the Arena to unlock this card from Hog Mountain (Arena 10) to Royal Arena (Arena 7).
- On 7/1/19, a Balance Update decreased the Heal’s Elixir cost to 1 (from 3). It also decreased its duration to 2 sec (from 2.5 sec) and reduced its healing/sec by 63%.
- Heal is one of the three spells that doesn‘t affect buildings. The other two are the Tornado and Clone.
- It is one of the six Elixir spells from Clash of Clans to also be in Clash Royale, the others being the Lightning, Rage, Freeze, Earthquake and Clone.
- It's the cheapest spell in the game, costing 1 elixir to cast. It's also one of the three 1-elixir cost cards in the game, the other two being the Ice Spirit and Skeletons.
- It can heal back a part of the damage done by the opponent's Poison, allowing the troops to live longer.
- The Heal spell is also effective against the Fireball if it doesn't one-shot the troops.
- The Heal Spell can heal middle to low health troops when they're targeting a Crown Tower such as a Wizard, Musketeer, or Inferno Dragon to continue dealing heavy damage towards the Tower, as it will surprise the opponent if it remained unused up until then. This is especially deadly when used with an Inferno Dragon, as this will also give it enough time to reach maximum damage and must be countered very quickly which sometimes is not possible.
- If the opponent Zaps the Lava Pups from a Lava Hound, Heal can be used to heal the Pups and they will continue to do heavy damage to the opponent's tower.
- Healing troops that the opponent would normally ignore and let the Crown Tower defeat can catch the opponent off guard and result in the Tower taking significant damage.
- While the Heal has healing capabilities, it does not heal any troops that have been destroyed. Also, it cannot heal troops over their original health. Once the troop has been fully healed, it will not be affected by the Heal. If the troop is eliminated by a particular attack in one hit, the Heal will be incapable of doing anything. For example, Skeletons that are under an enemy Poison cannot be kept alive using a Heal unless the Skeletons are sufficiently leveled such that they do not die in one pulse of the Poison.
- A possible strategy would be to use a Miner and a Minion Horde with a Heal, but only if the opponent does not have Arrows or any other high-damage spell, excluding Lightning. If the enemy uses a Zap, a Princess, or Ice Spirit, the Heal will keep the Minions alive while attacking the Tower. This would work with a Goblin Barrel too if the opponent's counter does not have a direct counter to the Goblins.
