General Guide – The King’s League: Odyssey

The King's League: Odyssey General Guide

For quite some time, we have been wondering if we should put up a general guide for The King’s League: Odyssey. Players have been very efficient in figuring out every part of the game, but as we still get questions occasionally, here’s an overall look at the game. Do note that this guide only applies for the browser version.

When players emerge as the champion of a league, they will move onto the next one. If they fail to advance, they can challenge the same league again. Opponents found in the first three stages are other challengers in the league, but the final stage pits the player against seven other Kurestal Knights.


There are a total of 19 classes in the game, 4 basic classes with 2 advancement tiers.

Units can be levelled up with Crystals (earned from finishing leagues or certain quests). Each class can be further upgraded at the Battle Headquarters.
Basic Class
Advanced Tier 2
Advanced Tier 3
A loyal knight makes for a good tanker for the team.
It is harder to knock Templars back, and they are less vulnerable to magical attacks.
Paladins are sturdier, swifter and more precise with their attacks.
A warrior attacks well with his trusty spear.
Lancers are great attackers, and are not particularly lacking in other aspects.

Spearmen are extremely aggressive attackers.
Gladiators are all-rounded warriors: fast, lethal, sturdy and mostly always hungry.

The only warriors more aggressive than the spearmen are berserkers.
Magicians deal magical ranged attacks.
Wizards deal more magical ranged damage than magicians.

Clerics do what they do best: healing.
Kurestal Maidens can attack units in an area, and also conjure walls of crystals to protect their own.

Bishops are great healers, and also give extra bonuses to other units on your team.
Archers are non-magical ranged attackers.
Rangers shoot with so much force, their attacks knockback enemies and deal critical hits.

Hunters shoot way faster than Archers do.
Snipers are may not attack as fast as Sentinels do, but they can occasionally take units out in one shot.

The attack speed of Sentinels is unrivaled amongst the ranged units.
Thieves are melee attackers, but they defend well against ranged units.
Assassins take after their Thief abilities - with more critical damage.

Unique Characters

There are a total of eight unique characters to be recruited throughout the game, and these characters have bonus stats compared to normal units of their classes.

Unique characters appear when certain criterias have been met by the player. These criterias are hinted in the recruitment interface.

Accepting and completing quests provide extra income for the army. Completing quests by a faction will raise your reputation with them, unlocking more quests that yield better rewards. There are four reputation stages (in order): Neutral, Friendly, Respected, Exalted.

The four factions providing quests are:

faction_gs  Golden Scales

A merchant’s guild, Golden Scales requires much help with safekeeping their trade goods. The player’s reputation with them starts from the Friendly stage.

faction_bog Blades Of Glory
A group of mercenaries who are short handed at the moment. Helping them with their odd jobs grants good rewards (and of course, achievements).

faction_sc Shadow Corps

A thieves guild with a tinge of justice – think Robin Hood.  Player’s reputation with them starts from the Neutral stage, and they are the last faction to be unlocked.

faction_trc The Royal Contingent  

The Royal Contingent provides quests related to the background story. The player’s reputation with them starts from the Respected stage.

Appears after two leagues, at random times. Allows players to exchange gold for crystals, vice versa.

Dragon Treasure
To be eligible for this event, the player must have Honoured reputation with the three factions (besides The Royal Contingent). Slaying the dragon grants luxurious rewards.

Battlethon premium_tab_20
Joining the Battlethon means pitching your army against a series of other armies with different unit combinations. The higher your winning streak is, the more rewards you get. If you lost or quit, your winning streak is restarted.


Completing achievements grants a rank that comes with bonuses to the player’s monthly income. This rank also carries over to a new game (in a different slot), allowing players to earn bonuses in new games.

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Hello, we don’t have an offline browser version of the game, but we’re releasing a version on the iOS tomorrow! It has extra content and various updates, maybe you will consider getting that? 🙂

      • Juan bautista says:

        Ty for the quick reply!
        NICE im totally buying it 😀 … I was just wondering if you guys are thinking of making a sequel (just to know i love your game thats why im asking).

        • kurechief says: (Author)

          You’re welcome 🙂 And thank you for the support!
          The mobile version has a handful of new features, so there won’t be a third game for King’s League yet.

  2. fil03 says:

    Are you considering releasing the iOS version of the game on Android? I am a dire fan of the series, and I would totally buy this if it came out on the Google Play Store!

  3. Bean says:

    Hi, i’m playing this on the iphone and its great fun! BUT can you please solve the bug asap where the game keeps crashing? Tonnes of people are frustrated by it. Thanks!

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Hello, this is belated, but we’ve already released a patch to fix up the crash awhile ago – just in case you haven’t updated!

  4. Anonymous says:

    I have over 80.000 unspent gold but still i can’t get the thief!! (iOS edition)

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Did you search the City while having that amount of gold? You can email us hello [at] kurechii [dot] com to look into it if it persists.

  5. Olaf says:

    For the sake of class upgrades, is Malzahra a mage? Warrior? It’s unclear…

  6. Luke says:

    Hoe do we replay the league after we finish the game..?

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      You can start a new game for the Leagues. Or, you can opt to continue your matches in the Battlethon.

  7. Lucas says: there anyhow i can replay the league in endless mode..? I missed some achievement and trying to achieve it without starting the whole game again

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Hello, the only way to replay the league is to start a new game . If you’re playing the Flash version, you can still do so in a different mode and keep your progress.

  8. wonderabout says:


    And I hope you being understand my bad English before asking. :p

    I have purchased the kings league in android and im totally enjoyed with it.

    And Im started to wonder about is this premium contents contained in what I purchased in android phone.

    I didnt seen the insane modes but I have played battlethon events in field at several times ago.

    So my questions point is ‘is that apps contained with premium contents?’

    Thx for patience to my bad english.

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Hello there,
      Have you finished the game once? Insane mode is available when you start a new game, so do check out the main menu!

  9. Cynero says:

    I was wondering if a third part is going to come out some. I am a big fan and have bought iOS app. I can’t wait.

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      There’s something being planned at the moment. Do keep up with our news through our social media 😀 We’ll update when there’s something proper in the works! Really glad you enjoyed the game!

  10. Jeanne says:

    for the love of god

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      We’re working to finish up a few games at the moment, when we do start on a follow up to King’s League – we’ll definitely update on social media 😀

  11. AussieJo2001 says:

    I know this is asked a lot, but A THIRD ONE PLEASE!?? I finished the hard mode, and insane mode, no comment. But I have played this for over a year now, and it’s time the next one comes out. Thank you.

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Glad you enjoyed the game! We have a few games in the works at the moment, just keep updated with us on our social media for King’s League updates! 😀

  12. AussieJo2001 says:

    Wow, you DO reply quick! It only took 12 minutes! And thanks for the info!

  13. JosephF says:

    I’m playing on armorgames and I have a problem with obtaining “Marauding Spirit” (Misc) achievment because i can’t find “The Embezzler” achievment in game. Am I blind or was it renamed or something?

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Hello, if you’re not playing the mobile version, “The Embezzler” should be found under the Recruitment category.

  14. Gerrit Erasmus says:

    Empirically, Irvine and Greg fire at precisely the same speed. Bug?

  15. Wilson Lin says:

    Can the polearms tornament come on more than once?

  16. TKL FANATIC says:

    How do you unlock the truth or dare dungeon?

  17. Yelp says:

    How do u get the royal guard
    It’s in the class upgrades

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      By completing dungeons, you will be able to recruit the Royal Guard, Champion and Phantom 🙂

  18. yoga says:

    I want the king league 3

  19. zenny1234 says:

    I beat the whole king’s league on my device and still haven’t unlocked the truth or dare dungeon. Please help!

  20. Angel says:

    I lost 4 times in a row, and recruited in the mountains to get corthello, but when I did, a message said that i could find him in the village. I couldn’t get to the village until my search timed out, but than the message disappeared too and now I can’t get him. Why?

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Unique Characters can only be recruited in the time span they are said to be available. Once it passes, they won’t turn up in searches anymore.

  21. ILoveKing'sLeague says:

    Is it possible to get 3 assassins including christabel? It’s a strategy that I think could work very well.

  22. ILoveKing'sLeague says:

    Wow! Thanks for answering so fast!
    I have another question: Which stat should I train to make an archer type unit’s ranged attack strength increase?

  23. Thomas says:

    Are you coming out with a third game I have a 51 in the battlethon and really want a third game, Thanks

  24. Thomas says:

    I got quinsforth in the polearms but when I searched in the city later in the game about a year later I got tugboat to, so I have quinsforth and tybolt.

  25. Collin says:

    I’ve been playing King’s League Odyssey nonstop for the past few days; it’s the best and I can’t wait for the next installment. Anyway, I beat the game on insane and just decided to keep playing (I’m at the year 1832). I was bored and recruiting all the characters from the city and somehow Tybolt the Spearman appeared and I recruited him. The thing is, I already got Quinsforth the Lancer from the polearms tournament wayy earlier in the game. How is this possible?

    • Ywei says:

      When you recruit the Lancer after the event, the Spearman will be available in the City with a 5% chance of turning up. Congratulations on recruiting both! Many wanted to collect all units, so we made it possible to do so.

      • Collin says:

        Wow thanks for the response that’s pretty cool! Now I have everyone!
        Also, does the Battlethon ever end? I have a 2300 something winning streak with no end in sight. I can’t wait for new content. Thanks for the awesome game!

  26. night meled says:

    Dear kurechief please release the third game and im not alowed facebook or twitter and outher soshil net working sites and i have been playing for over 4 years played both games and copleted it sooooo many times and it put the biggest smile on my face and also play this game puts a smile on my face all ready and warms my heart and i know make a third game has been asked so much sorry if all ready is out and pleace can you tone down the amount of gold you need to get cristabell and also with bayard the archer can you change his name to baeyard :):):):)

  27. QueensRook says:

    Are there thresholds for the lancers vs spearmen event to pop up?
    Sometimes it comes up after the 3rd tournament, and in other plays I get to the King without seeing it. I’ve been trying to get the 7 unique characters before reaching the king and without losing a match, but can’t figure out why I keep missing the lancer/spearmen since I changed to a more aggressive strategy…

  28. Ziblaed says:

    can you only get the Champion and Phantom on insane because i’m playing in easy because i’m a noob, but I can’t get them, even though i have all of the requirements done.

  29. handybudd says:

    I skipped the kongregate quest when it first occured.. will it occur again? cos now I have played for plenty of game years, and the quest haven’t appeared again. I really want to get Greg.

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Hello, if you missed the quest, it won’t reappear in the same game run. Do try again in another slot instead?

  30. Keiichi says:

    I recruited all the available units, but I only got common templar/knight, all the other units I found at least one rare for each, are the characters randomized in rarity with the same names? or the game is encoded in a way I can not get a rare knight/templar? Thanks for your time.

  31. SemkoBro says:

    Hi if the pole arm weapon tournament only happens on time per slot how can we have all seven unique characters on browser and how can we complete the class database

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Hello, achievements for the browser version are linked through game slots, so you can hire different units in different slots to complete it 🙂

  32. Hi I was wondering if I could find a unique unit multiple tes. Im playing the app and when I found the unique priest I couldn’t afford him.

    • kurechief says: (Author)

      Hello, sorry but one a unique character appears it doesn’t appear again. You can get him in another playthrough!

  33. Joe says:

    How do you find rogues I’m not talking about christabel just rogues in general I can’t find any?
