Go to any buy/sell menu, and highlight any unwanted equipment (the item will be sold once you release RT). Then, hold RT and press A repeatedly. This will only work on items in the equipment menu (shield icon), not the items in the bag icon. This works in any shop, or the fast travel buy/sell menu. Note: This glitch was done on an unpatched version of the game. You can delete all patches for the game by using the "Clear hard drive cache" code for the Xbox 360.Easy money and items
Grind in one of the levels for maximum experience, and get the Elfstone Of Congeniality item. It will give you a 10% discount on items. Equip ten of them to get 99.9% off. You can then get anything from the store for approximately 1 silver coin. You can sell your most expensive item for 30,000 silver coins, then buy it back for 1 silver coin, then sell it again for 30,000 silver coins. The best place to do this is in the Ettenmoors. The best time to begin grinding for the Elfsones Of Congeniality item is immediately after a save point, when the character Andriel says "I see sunlight ahead." To be exact, the first two Orcs are archers that you will kill. Kill everything and loot the bodies, but do not continue past the save point of the wooden gates. Go back to the nearest Fast Travel, then go to Rivendell, and repeat the process.Achievements
