Kingdoms of Camelot Tutorial - Divine Inspiration

Updated on March 24, 2012

Kingdoms of Camelot Guide - Divine Inspiration

Kingdoms of Camelot is a social networking game played through Facebook. It is a real time strategy (RTS) game played with many other users.   Join up with them in alliances.

If you have never tried this free online game, don't worry.  The application developers did an outstanding job by developing quests for new players to learn this fun tactics game.  The game will literally walk you through each and every step to help learn the game mechanics.

As the game progresses, you will improve your buildings to level 9, the highest level possible without the Divine Inspiration.  When you come across the ultra-rare item, Divine Inspiration, you will want to use it thoughtfully.  Enhancing some buildings to level 10 will give you a lot more options than others.  Depending on your style of play, you will want to think through this carefully.

Why do you need Divine Inspiration?

Every building in Kingdoms of Camelot requires Divine Inspiration as one of the components required to advance the building to its maximum, Level 10.  Look at the Level 9 cottage above and see in the "Required" column the number 1 next to the words Divine Inspiration.  When the resource is missing, it will show up as red

Buy one in the Shop

Look at the picture above. It is a snapshot of the Shop in Kingdoms of Camelot. To get to the Shop, you should click on "My Items" and then the button in the upper right hand side that says "Get More Items."

The Shop window opens up. On the "General" tab, you will see several items, but the elusive Divine Inspiration is not among them.

Look underneath the word "Court" in the upper right hand corner. You will be on "Page 1 of 2." Click the word "Next" to get to "Page 2 of 2."

On this page you will see the Divine Inspiration at a cost of 50 gems. Gems are bought using real life money. On the top of the window is a button that reads "Add more gems." That will take you to a screen where you can buy gems.

Come back to the "General" tab to buy the Divine Inspiration.

If you want more than one, then buy the "Divine Ascension" on the "Chest" tab.  You will get 5 Divine Inspirations for 200 gems (40 gems/DI).  That is a significant savings from the normal 50 gems per DI.

I have won a Divine Inspiration through Merlin's Magic Boxes

Win one with Merlin's Magic Tokens

The second way to gain a Divine Inspiration is through the lottery.  Every day, you should help at least one of your friends with research or a building.  These requests for help will usually show up on your Facebook home page.  

You will earn one Merlin's Magic Token per day if you help a friend.  

On your Kingdoms of Camelot screen, click on the box depicted in the picture to the right.  If you have a token, it will show here.  

Click "Play Now" and the magic boxes will be populated with quasi-random items.  The boxes will be shuffled and hidden and you may choose one box.  It is estimated that you will have a 1% chance of selecting a Divine Inspiration.  Not great odds, but certainly is cheaper than buying one.

I have won a Divine Inspiration through the Tournament

Win one through the Tournament

Periodically, a tournament is held and players may devote the time and effort to accomplish the goals set forth. The highest ranking players in the tournament will win gems, and gems may be used to buy Divine Inspirations.

It is not easy to place high in these tournaments. It almost always precludes the "casual player" from winning the top prizes, but it is another option in the quest for Divine Inspiration.  Remember, this is a social networking game and the vast majority of players log on throughout the day to update the building queues.

      I have been hearing a lot the "kingdom of camelot" facebook application game. I asked my younger niece to try it out and asked her what she thinks about it. She said, it's totally new to her and she's just exploring it but she likes the new interphase and the whole new game idea about protecting one's kingdom.

      This KOC site has been, without a doubt, has made me a considerable foe. In only two weeks, I have reached 200k in might and control my domain where I'm surrounded by 10 other cities. Without this information I would have been taken out a long time ago. You rock!

      Hi there,

      This helped out while both playing, and reviewing Kingdoms of Camelot. I've included a link to this tutorial in my review at (under How Free are these games?).
