The Renegade Post is a special barracks tower that appears in Shrine of Elynie, the last level of Kingdom Rush: Origins. It trains three Twilight elf warriors that have defected to your side.


Believing that the price for Malicia and Mactans' victory is too high or too evil for them, these twilight elves changed sides at the last minute and offer their services to you, showing that not all non-heroic twilight elves are incorrigible. They hold the line with ability damage and ranged attacks like Forest Keepers, but share the Bladesingers' armor and advantage in numbers.

The Renegades are average warriors capable of stalling weak to medium tier enemies and dealing a fair amount of damage, but on their own, they quickly fall to the enemies' overwhelming force. Use them to help defend your choke points and support your units and towers, and get Life Stealer Strike III for them when possible, the skill allows them to survive much longer. Blade Mail is the next upgrade you should get because since the Renegades tend to take lots of damage being on the front line, the reflected damage can be significant. Although the Renegades have ranged capability, which is further improved by Double Daggers, their actual ranged damage is small, proving totally ineffective at killing and wounding enemies.
