  • Infinite backpacks

    Go to Mel Senshir, and save your game. Then, kill the Dokkalfar merchant to the left of where you spawn. Pay the fine or go to jail. Go to one of your houses, and sleep for four days. Go back to Mel Senshir, and the Dokkalfar merchant you killed should have respawned with new inventory. You can now buy a new backpack. Repeat this as many times as desired. Note: Try killing the merchant close to where he is supposed to be since when he respawns he will appear wherever he initially dropped.

  • Easy experience

    Make Corgan Hold available for fast traveling. It is in the western edge of Tala-Rane, in the Plains of Erathell. Just inside the door of Corgan Hold is a shrine that gives +20% XP for a limited time. Activate the shrine, go back outside, then fast travel to your next quest or dungeon to earn easy additional XP while the shrine is active.

  • Easy salvage

    Salvage garnered from items is randomized. Thus, save the game before you salvage a weapon or armor at the Forge. If you like the components harvested, save the game. If you do not like them, load your previous save, and try again.

  • Easy Combat Training

    Any traps laid in the Combat Training arena before beginning training will remain there once it begins. Thus, if you are struggling to beat any record, lay traps before you begin training. They will damage and slow down enemies during training, allowing you to kill them more quickly and easily.

  • Easy lockpicking without using points

    Do not hold "D" while picking locks; instead, tap it fast to advance. If you see the lockpick slightly moving, stop and change lockpick positions. Start from the left or right, and when the lockpick is about to brake (it will twitch), stop and try again after you moved him for 1/4 of a scale. This trick requires some practice, but once you master it, you will not need to spend attribute points on lockpicking.

  • Easy stealth chest looting

    If you are trying to loot a chest while in Stealth mode and the percentage of being caught is too high/risky, simply back out of the chest inventory, and then loot the chest again. The percentage of risk should have decreased. You can keep repeating this process until you have zero risk of being caught.

  • Easy ring from Well Of Souls

    When starting Story mode, you are asked if you would like to skip the tutorial. Choose "Don't skip", and play the demo. Reach the Rock Troll, and defeat it. Then, loot the troll to get a ring you would not have gotten by skipping the tutorial.

  • Alternating loot

    Before entering a house or dungeon, save the game. If you do not like or need the items found, simply reload your saved game to change the randomly generated loot in the house or dungeon.

  • Cheaper armor and weapon repair

    When you need armor or weapons repaired, do not pay smiths to do the repairs, as they charge a lot. Instead, simply buy as many Repair Kits as possible from merchants. Once you are approximately ten hours into the game, they should be pretty easy to find. Try finding backpacks to have more room to carry them. Using Repair Kits should save you a lot of gold, especially once you acquire rarer weapons and armor that are expensive to have repaired at a smith.

  • Turning stolen items into non-stolen items

    Take stolen items to a merchant (fence) that buys stolen merchandise. Sell them a stolen item, and without exiting the "Buy/Sell" screen, go back to the "Buy" option. Scroll down to "Sold Items", and buy the item back for the same amount you sold it. The red hand icon will now be gone from the item.

  • Training more than three pets ("The Legend Of Dead Kel" DLC)

    In "The Legend Of Dead Kel" downloadable content, once you get the "Pet Training" option, you normally cannot train more than three pets. When asked to select a pet to discard, select the "Raise Pets" option (it is the middle option on the left side). You should now be able to select the option to train another pet. You can train all possible pets using this method.

  • Easy "Juggler" achievement

    This trick requires a bow (preferably with weaker stats) and long sword. You must be able to perform the Upheaval move for the long sword, which is one of the first and most useful sword moves in the game. Simply perform the Upheaval move on an enemy, then shoot arrows into them as they are airborne to get the "Juggler" achievement.

  • Easy "Streaker" achievement

    You can get the "Streaker" achievement with the first gnome you talk to after waking up on the body pile. Simply unequip everything but your weapon. Kill the two Tuatha harassing the gnome, then quickly unequip your weapon before the gnome comes over and starts a conversation.
