  • Secret dungeon

    Select the Very Hard difficulty, and play the first level of the main dungeon. Rush all the way to Brink to find him fighting a Translucid beast. Kill the beast to unlock a Phase Portal that will transport you to a secret dungeon that contains very powerful enemies.

  • Duplicate items

    Click on any piece of goods or merchandise (cheapest one recommended). You will have selected that item to put in your inventory. Instead of putting it in an empty slot, put it on an existing item in your inventory (most expensive one recommended). You will have duplicated the item you clicked on. Note: This will not copy the enchantments, but will generate a randomly enchanted item.

  • Completing the prologue mission easily

    Get one character through the story in Easy mode. Use the "Duplicate items" glitch, and double up on the mission item. Put it in shared inventory. Create another character, and take the mission item out. Give it to the mission giver. Note: Do not to pick up the real mission item with the second character or you will not be able to get rid of it.

  • Attacking from other levels

    When you stand under or above another platform where you can see a group of enemies and it is open for you to use a far range shot, press [Shift] + [Attack Move]. You will use your skill from the upper or lower platform, without actually encounter mobs. This can be done with most far range attacks, especially Alkemis' skill.
