Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom Complete Guide: Crafting, Skirmish Battles, Kingdom Management, Recruiting Citizens, And More

A complete guide for Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom.

Posted By | On 04th, Apr. 2018 Under Article, Video Game Tips


Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is the sequel to the much acclaimed JRPG. The game follows in its predecessor’s footsteps while also changing things up a bit. In this game, you will explore the story mainly through the eyes of the young Prince Evan. However, you’ll also be able to control two other companion characters who will aid Evan on his adventure.

This is a game with a lot of complex systems that you’ll have to pay attention to including managing your kingdom, exploring the open world, crafting, and much more. If you’ve been looking for any information regarding any such aspect of the game, then look no further because this guide is here to help you out! If you’re ready, then let’s get started.

HOW TO BUILD AND MANAGE YOUR OWN KINGDOM

Once you’ve got to a certain point in the game and Evan takes his seat on the throne, you’ll have to pay attention to your kingdom and how it works. You’ll also have to appoint the appropriate personnel for certain tasks so that the kingdom functions smoothly. Furthermore, you can build different facilities that will provide some very useful benefits.

First off, make sure you build a weapons shop, an outifitter, and a spellworks as soon as you get the new kingdom. These will allow you to craft and upgrade weapons and armor, and learn and improve spells. Just ensure that you’re running some research whenever you can as this will help you out a lot later on. To do any of this, you require Kingsguilders or KG which is different from the normal currency you use to make other purchases. As your kingdom grows larger and you amass more resources, you will be able to earn a greater amount of KG. As the ruler, you’ll be able to gain a share of the harvest from farms and mines, so make sure you collect that and then the stores can continue functioning as usual,  since they have a limit to the amount of resources they can hold.

Once you have this covered, you’ll want to focus on upgrading your castle. It’s certainly not an easy to task to gather the amount of influence and KG required, but you’ll eventually get there. You can build a lot of useful facilities but the most useful are the following:

  • Spellworks: Evan learns the Revive ability which can be very useful in battle. Magic can be levelled up using materials you collect on your adventures.
  • Explorer’s Guild: Offers a range of benefits such as allowing you to move faster on the world map.
  • Basic Training Ground: Increases amount of experience gained and distributed among party members, as well as to those who aren’t in your immediate party.

Naturally, citizens are an integral part of your kingdom and they sometimes offer important Citizen Quests which you can complete to earn some KG and other rewards. You can recruit citizens out in the wilds or just by completing certain quests. You can also obtain new citizens for your kingdom through the Taskmaster after completing certain quests for him and then swapping the coins you receive in exchange for new citizens.

HOW TO WIN SKIRMISH BATTLES 

Evan will have to lead his army against opposing factions in skirmish battles. The way these battles work is that each unit type is strong or weak against another unity type. For example, swordsmen may be weak against spearmen, while archers may be weak against swordsmen. You’ll have to constantly rotate your units to ensure that they are going up against a unit type they can defeat. If there is a blue line going from your units to enemy units, then it indicates that your units are more powerful, but if there’s a red line, then it indicates that the enemy units are going to defeat your units.

During battle, you can call for reinforcements so make sure you do so if you want to win these battles. You just have to spend some Battle Points to be able to call for help from allies.

Finally, make sure you bolster or upgrade your army before an upcoming battle. In the skirmish menu, you’ll be able to see different options available to temporarily make your army stronger. Different upgrades are available at different prices (they cost KG), so make sure you understand your battle situation well before you spend any KG on an upgrade.

HOW TO FAST TRAVEL:

The world in Ni No Kuni 2 is much larger than the first game and as such it is one that you will spend a lot of time exploring- travelling in and around its numerous areas, even dungeons and the world map and interacting with all the characters (and monsters) you meet here. However, there is an efficient way to travel between major towns and smaller points of interest in-game and it involves the usage of so called trip-doors. They’re essentially portals, marked by a blue aura that once you find, you can use to transport Evan and his companions between areas.

HOW TO UNLOCK BLUE CHESTS

In your travels across the open world, you may have come across some blue chests that you haven’t been able to open. These chests cannot be opened in the normal way, but instead requires you to learn a spell called ‘Spring Lock’. Learning this spell is no easy task however. You’ll first have to gain Evermore and then build a Spellworks facility there. This facility will allow you to learn and research different spells. However, for the ‘Spring Lock’ spell, the building needs to be at least level 3. To upgrade buildings past level 2 however, you need to first upgrade your kingdom. Once all this is done, you’ll finally be able to learn the ‘Spring Lock’ spell and you’ll be able to open all of the blue chests out there using this spell!

HOW TO RECRUIT CITIZENS

As mentioned earlier, citizens are an integral part of your kingdom and not only do they populate it, they also contribute to it with their special skills and attributes. A larger number of citizens also allows you to upgrade your kingdom to different levels. Some citizens will automatically join your kingdom as you progress through the main story. Others can be recruited through the Taskmaster. There are many citizens whom you can recruit simply by completing side quests, so make sure you complete as many of these as you can.

HOW TO CRAFT

The crafting in the game does not become available until the third chapter of the game when you get your own kingdom. Once you have your kingdom up and running, you should get around to building an Outfitter and Weapon Workshop so that you can craft new weapons and armor.

You’ll also have to research new weapons and armor by going to the particular building under the Personal tab. Once you’ve researched a particular weapon or armor, you can then proceed to craft it, as long as you have the required materials. Keep in mind that each piece of equipment has a particular rank with the equipment of higher ranks being rare and harder to craft.

You can also upgrade weapons and armor but they have an upgrade limit, so be careful when you choose a particular upgrade for your equipment. As you upgrade workshops, you will also be able to gain access to better items, so make sure you do so whenever you get the chance.

HOW TO LEVEL UP FASTER

Levels in this game indicate how strong a character is. Your characters level up as you gain XP by killing monsters, going on quests, and doing other such activities. While all characters in your party will earn XP for completing certain quests or killing monsters, your main character will earn the most amount of XP. Except for some special scenarios, you can change who the main character is at any point so that you can focus on levelling up any given character.

The easiest way to earn XP in the game is to simply defeat monsters out there in the world. Defeating monsters of a higher level than you will earn you a larger amount of XP, but they’ll be tougher to defeat. Another way to earn XP in the game is to do all the quests you can find, whether they are story missions or side quests. These will net you a significant amount of XP and offer a quick way to level up your characters. Finally, defeating Tainted Beasts will also grant you good XP but they are of quite a high level and can be fairly difficult to defeat early on. However, you should try and defeat as many of these as you can as the XP you gain will more than make up for the difficult battle.

TAINTED MONSTERS GUIDE

Tainted Monsters are basically more difficult versions of monsters that you’ll encounter on your adventure. They have huge health pools, and deal large amounts of damage. They can be found across the World Map and many are announced in your Leafbook, so always keep a look out for any new Tainted Monster you can find.

Defeating Tainted Monsters offers some great rewards but these are cumulative in nature and you don’t get rewarded for each specific Tainted Monster that you kill. As you defeat a number of these monsters, you’ll be rewarded with different items. You can find below the full list of rewards along with the number of Tainted Monsters you have to kill to earn these rewards.

  • 2 Tainted Monsters Killed: Bulwark Brooch
  • 4 Tainted Monsters Killed: Champion’s Ring
  • 7 Tainted Monsters Killed: Light- fingered Ring
  • 10 Tainted Monsters Killed: Spellpower-Sweller
  • 15 Tainted Monsters Killed: Sopguard Pendant
  • 20 Tainted Monsters Killed: Blusterguard Pendant
  • 25 Tainted Monsters Killed: Blazeguard Pendant
  • 30 Tainted Monsters Killed: Slippery Pendant
  • 35 Tainted Monsters Killed: Plutocrat’s Pendant
  • 40 Tainted Monsters Killed: Necklace of Enlightenment
  • 45 Tainted Monsters Killed: Uncanny Close-Range Ring
  • 50 Tainted Monsters Killed: Ring of Rancour

ALL 9 DREAMER’S DOOR DUNGEONS LOCATIONS

While not a particularly challenging game, Ni No Kuni 2 features about 9 dreamer’s door dungeons that manage to really push the gameplay to another level. As these are tricky to find, feel free to glance quickly at the list below to help you locate each dungeon.

  • Dreamer’s Door 1: Grotty Grotto, Head east at Auntie Martha’s cottage, where you picked up your first Higgledy.
  • Dreamer’s Door 2: Sundown Woods, Search southwest from Evermore, or east of the Forest of Niall.
  • Dreamer’s Door 3: Eert Grove, Head northeast from Goldpaw, following the path above the sand.
  • Dreamer’s Door 4: Shrine of Pining, Search southeast from Hydropolis on the island of Makronos.
  • Dreamer’s Door 5: Sublime Shrine, Head east from Broadleaf, going up the northern ridge.
  • Dreamer’s Door 6: Tidewash Cave, Search northwest from Capstan-upon-Hull, or south from Goldpaw, in the coast.
  • Dreamer’s Door 7: Crooked Cavern, Head east from the Sky Pirates’ Base.
  • Dreamer’s Door 8: Blowtorch Cave, Head south from Broadleaf, to the very tip of Autumnia.
  • Dreamer’s Door 9: Shivery Shrine, north from Broadleaf in the wintry area and northeast from the plane crash site.
  • Dreamer’s Door 10: Faraway Forest, Head southeast from Broadleaf, and it can be found just a little above Door Eight’s Blowtorch Cave.

HOW TO CREATE AND LEVEL UP HIGGLEDIES

Masquerading as familiars in the first Ni No Kuni game, Higgledies can prove to be a crucial addition to your team, especially during battle. They fight alongside you and your companions, boosting their particular skill sets with offensive and defensive abilities. Once you build your own Kingdom in the game, one of the facilities you unlock is a Higglery where you can create and level up Higgledies. The more research is invested in the Higglery, the better the Higgledies it produces. Don’t forget to collect a number of materials and plants etc as they are crucial in crafting and levelling up these creatures.  Basically, since each Higgledy prefers a particular material, feeding it more of that will increase its stats, increasing both their offense and defense attributes as well as their normal and advanced skills. Remember- since materials are scarce, upgrade only those Higgledies that you plan to include in your party.

HOW TO FARM MONEY

This RPG uses two types of currencies in-game, Guilders and Kingsguilders to leverage upgrades for anything, from weapons like your swords and daggers to skills and armours. The quickest, if not always the easiest, way to earn Guilders is to battle wild beasts and creatures and defeat them. This yields you sacks of Guilders whose value is directly proportionate to the strength of your opponent. Another way to earn Guilders unlocks later in the game, in the town of Golden Paw. Where there are a number of merchants and trades found in the bazaars of this region, and where you can sell weapons and resources you have collected in your inventory  for  profit. The other currency Kingsguilders,  takes a while to earn, needing the gamer to have passed Level 3. Once you establish yourself in the Kingdom of Evermore, the citizens populating it will provide you with Kingsguilders. And of course,  in order to earn more Kingsguilders, you need to make life more profitable for your citizens and even increase the number of citizens living in your Kingdom. So, erect more buildings and open new shops and vendors and you’ll find your coffers filling up fast.

WHERE TO FIND SCARIWINKLE, PRISMS and RUBY HUEBLOOM

In order to complete the side quest ‘A Gift for Gao Jia’, you will find yourself on the hunt for Scariwinkle. If you can pay for it, these are sold pretty cheap in a shop in Hydropolis, by a vendor in the Nautes Harbor area. However the only problem is that you can only get to Hydropolis by ship. Otherwise they can also be found in the sea, in Coral caves and on Makronos Island.

Prisms are quite a valuable commodity in-game as they are needed to create Higgles and upgrade spells. The fastest way to find these prisms is to buy them from Swift Solutions. The vendor will exchange them for tokens and you will just need to take up some tasks for him in return. Another way, although one quite rare is by battling the strange monsters that are called Incarnates. These humanoid slimy creatures are easy to defeat, they don’t even try to engage you, they just dance and try to escape so if you beat them you get the corresponding Prism- colour coded. Red Incarnate thus yields a Red Prism.

Ruby Huebloom is quite a tricky plant to find, but important, one that can upgrade some of Evan’s spells for you. Once you’re level 2, you can easily find it in the general store in your Kingdom but before that can be one of the things dropped by enemies in the Calmlands in the Eert Grove and can even just grow in the ground, though that is rare.
