In our Ni no Kuni 2 Kingdom Building Tips guide, we will cover complete information about how you can manage Kingguilders (KG) currency. Not just that, we will also cover information on tips for building your Kingdom, different facilities, and recruiting citizens as well.

How to Manage Kingsguilders (KG) Currency in Ni no Kuni 2

The amount of Kingguilders (KG) will increase as you increase the number of citizens and buildings. With increasing the number of buildings, you have to make sure that you regularly visit your Kingdom to collect the Kingguilders (KG) stored in coffers.

Other than that, you have to expand your coffers so you can hold more Kingguilders. To manage Kingguilders properly, you have to increase building and expand coffer simultaneously.

Ni no Kuni 2 Kingdom Building Tips

Use Trip Doors to get to your Kingdom

Check-In on your Kingdom is important, and for that purpose, you can use the Trip doors. These doors will allow you to travel fast to your Kingdom. You should collect different useful items and currency from your Kingdom regularly as there is no point in keeping them at the cap amount.

Increase Coffer Size

Expanding your coffer’s size is important to store more currency rather than letting it stay filled with less. By level 6, your coffer storage amount will get to 300,000 KG, and you can even increase it beyond that for storing more KG.

Gather Citizen

For a Kingdom, citizens are really important. You will need citizens to perform many day-to-day tasks in the Kingdom. You can gather more citizens by completing a side quest with a smiling icon next to them.

Throughout the game, you can get these quests, so try to complete as many of them as possible.

Assign Citizens the Right Role

Assign the citizen the role which suits him the most. You should assign a citizen with a yellow star saying suitable for building. Some citizens will be good at research because of their special traits or skills, so you have to use them accordingly.

Level Up Your Citizens

You can further improve citizens’ skills by leveling them up. This will increase their IQ. You can level up your citizens by going to the Kingdom Management menu and selecting the citizens with the blue arrow next to them. You can press the options button to increase the selected citizen’s IQ and check that menu repeatedly because the game wouldn’t notify you about leveling any citizen.

Gathering Items

Most of the buildings in Ni no Kuni 2 allow you to gather items after some time. The citizen assigned to that building will collect the required item as it becomes available. You can also visit the citizen for the items if you need them.

These are very useful in the latter part of the game so keep them ready for that point.

Don’t Turn Off the Game

You shouldn’t turn off your game if you take a small break, as the KG and other items are associated with the time passes. So it is better to keep your game running to earn resources very quickly.
