Leaving a Kingdom Penalties in Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds

There are several penalties for leaving the kingdom in Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds, all connected to activities you would normally do within a kingdom. For those that are fresh to the game, these are actually guilds, aka large groups of players that can help each other. There are even special activities that you can only do as a guild member. If you want to know how to leave a kingdom in the first place, check out our How to Leave Kingdom Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds guide. With that said, here’s what your “punishments” for doing so are.

First off, you’ll only become aware of these penalties once you join a new kingdom. You won’t be able to check in, donate, cook at the restaurant, do quests, go to the theater, or buy stuff from the general store until the next daily kingdom reset (6 AM UTC). The more steep penalties for leaving a kingdom in Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds include blocking you from the auction house, achievements and Relic Wars. These should unlock the following Monday after that daily reset.

The harshest punishments we know of are with Kingdom Defense and Kingdom Dungeons. These seem to be completely off the board for seven days. So, if you’re planning to leave your current kingdom, time it carefully and do everything you can in your old kingdom before making the switch. Especially if there’s an event that requires you to do stuff that’s kingdom-related. Now, since the game is constantly being updated, the way penalties work might change. Let us know in the comments if the info is no longer valid, and we’ll be sure to update the article.

    I appreciate that I found this! I hope you also have an idea about my situation. Because last week, I just casually opened my Ni No Kuni, checked in through events and other stuff blah blah blah, until when I pressed the kingdom icon, I pressed it and I’m no longer in the kingdom, which is quite weird cuz I never intended to leave nor did I ever try to look through the process of leaving there ‘-‘ . It may be possible that I was kicked, although when I joined a new kingdom, I still received the penalties, which is like what you said, it is received once a person leaves the kingdom without much contribution. I think I’m only ranting at this point but I hope I get an explanation 🙂
