Building your own army is one of King’s Bounty II’s most excited features. This guide on Where To Recruit The Best Units In King’s Bounty 2 lists all of the recruiters we’ve discovered and what units they sell. Some are available freely as you travel to different towns and speak with different Recruiters. Others require you to complete a quest before you’re able to recruit the special units.
Below is a list of the different locations as we discovered them, in order as you progress through the game. At each Recruiter, we’ll tell how how to unlock any additional special units as well as the units they have available by default.
