  • The Lion King’s Castle is located in El Nath’s Sharp Cliff area, which can also be seen in the background of several Sharp Cliff and Forest of Dead Tree maps.
  • At level 110, Krag of the Silent Crusade will contact you via lightbulb, and will transport you to the Desolate Moor. Krag wants you to investigate your way through the castle. You will have to help Jenn the Locksmith rescue his brother from the Red Crockies (level 125), and advance further into the castle through instructions from Luden, a ghost who was the former knight of Von Leon, the Lion King. You also have to help out Murt, a ghost who was cursed by the Lion King and requests your help breaking this curse.
  • At level 115, Ifia, the queen of the Lion King, will also request that you help her communicate with the Lion King, who is so consumed by his sorrow and lust for revenge that he doesn’t notice her presence. Afterward, you will have to defeat Prison Guard Ani, a loyal servant of the Lion King.
  • (Currently in KMS only): After you help Ifia communicate with Von Leon, there is an additional storyline involving the Lion King’s Rose Garden, with a new boss: King Castle Golem.
