Walkthrough (PlayStation3)

Walkthrough (Xbox 360)


Easy experience

  • Go to the Desert area (immediately after getting off the boat) and equip the Girrafey animal orb. It will help you level up faster. This area is swarming with an endless supply of scorpions. Keep killing those scorpions repeatedly to level up faster. Note: You will level up based on how much damage you deal to a target, and not how many enemies you kill. This will require some time and patience.
  • Go to the point in the Lava World area where you need a sandwich to continue, but do not have a sandwich with you. Because you do not have a sandwich, enemies here will drop sandwiches when they are defeated. Do not pick up a sandwich and they will keep respawning. Keep defeating them to gain as much experience as desired. Note: this trick works best with low level characters.
  • When at lower levels, go to Thieves' Forest. Kill the first few thieves until they begin to run away. A large troll will appear and shoot out smaller trolls. Kill as many of them as possible, but avoid hitting the larger troll. The longer he is there, the more smaller trolls you can farm.
  • When between levels 25 and 40, go to Lava World. Follow the walkway until you reach a metal wall. Keep killing Fire Demons while reaching that point. Do not break the wall with a sandwich to keep the enemies spawning. You can also go to Marsh and progress to near the end to find a troll with two Druidic Knights. Allow the troll to spawn smaller ones, and keep farming them.
  • If you are over level 40 go to the last level. Fight the Painter. He will not attack until he is at half health. While he is painting, use your strongest attacks on him. Remove as much of his health as possible before the paintings attack.

Getting Sherbert without Magic Jump

Go to the far left of the Ark where the door is locked (if you have not unlocked it already). Get directly next to the door, so that you can no longer go left. Jump, then immediately press Y, X, Y, X, Y, X (making sure you actually hit the door) until you reach Sherbert. This is a great way to save skill points to use on other attributes.

Light pink: Unicorn
Orange: Carrot Clock
Teal: Angry Person
Red: Big Monster
Purple: Octopus
Magenta: Clown
Turquoise: Zombie
Light orange: Cat
White: Elephant
Light purple: Nose-Snail
