Prevent NPC hireling looting
Instead of clicking on the bodies, leave them where
they fall. When you get a chance or have cleared the map, exit
the map and re-enter. The bodies will be gone, but there will
be piles of loot where they fell. The NPC will not loot the pile.
Walk over and pick everything up. Also, if your hireling has picked
up something he/she cannot identify, when you are bartering select
the NPC and drag the item to a different character's inventory.
Normally when you try this, the NPC refuses to drop the item,
but it works with unidentified items while in the barter menu.
Hire an NPC and simply kill him or her. This works
well if you hire Otis, Elmo, Lareth, or any high level character.
Once you have earned an Elemental Gem (easiest with Earth, Air,
and Water), use it to summon a demon. Use a Rogue or Fighter to
melee the demon with full attacks and kill it before the duration
expires. When it dies, loot it to retrieve a free Elemental Gem
for another character, at no risk, plus gain the experience for
killing the creature.
When you first start the game, create your primary character and
two or three others that you will import later. Start the game
using only your primary character. Walk around Hommlet and talk
to everyone so that you initiate as many of the side quests as
possible. You will be able to finish some of them very quickly.
Complete as many of the non-combat quests as you can, and since
you only are using one created character, you will level him/her
up several levels quickly. If you want to complete the three romance
quests, you will need two male characters and one female character.
Note: The two romances with the female NPCs may not activate if
you are using evil characters. Go to the inn and import two characters
of your choice. Make sure one is some type of offensive mage.
The other can be whatever class desired, but if you choose another
spell-caster make sure you hire Elmo, as he is a good high level
fighter. Go out and complete the combat quests, but make sure
you protect your new characters. Elmo can take care of himself.
In Emrity Meadows, avoid the Bear and Giant. They are high level
and the Giant can kill your party members with one blow from his
club. Return there later after you are at higher levels to kill
them. After you have leveled up to about level 5 or 6, go to the
Hommlet Trading Post and kill Gregmag and Rannos. They give you
a large amount of experience points, and since they are evil,
you will not receive a reputation penalty. With your primary character
now at a high level and Elmo along, you can easily defeat most
enemies while you protect and level up your spell-casters. Also,
in Nulb you can kill Otis for some good experience points and
equipment. Otis is Elmo's brother, and if you choose to fight
Otis, Elmo will side with his brother. This is a tough fight at
lower levels, and Elmo is more valuable as your ally if you are
only using three or four of your created characters. If you want
to defeat Otis, turn Elmo loose first. After you kill Otis, you
can return to Hommlet and Elmo will rejoin your party.
This trick requires a Cloak Of Elvenkind and a Dexterity of 18.
Go to a place like the moathouse and look for a very tight corner.
It can be on the inside or outside the building. Once you are
in the corner, open the radial menu and turn "Sneak"
on. Once this is done, rest for a period of two to five days,
as many times as needed. If performed correctly a group of ten
to thirty monsters will be located near you, and a few on top
of you. Kill them for experience totaling from 1,000 to 3,000
points. This works best with two characters. One wizard and one
fighter with Greater Cleave works very well. Remember to have
them both in hiding, and use the fighter as the bait. You must
be facing away from the monsters for it to work, the wizard needs
to be a distance away. A Fireball spell makes this trick work
Extra skill points
This trick requires a level 3 wizard with Craft Wondrous
item and the Fox's Cunning spell. After the wizard's last level
up, gain about 1,500 experience points. Then, go into a safe area
and craft a Headband of Intellect +6. Once you have the item,
have any character who levels up put it on before you enter into
the level up screen. In the skills screen, you will have three
to four extra skill points. This is very helpful if the character's
Intelligence is 18.
If your character is eligible to gain a level, they
can be beaten down to about -9 HP. You will can then bring them
back by simply leveling up. Each upgrade goes up about 10 points.
Get all 18s in stats
Go to the point buy screen. Set the first stat to 18,
then click and drag it to the right of the up and down arrows
and release it. It should disappear if done correctly. Go back
to the roll your stats screen and the top box should have an 18
in it. Repeat this for each box.
Ring Of Invisibility
There are many ways the game starts. The following
can be done when Hedrack tells you to find Jaroo. As you walk
up the stairs and walk towards Hedrack and the two bears, walk
to where you can just see Hedrak's feet. Attack and kill him and
only one of the bears. Pick up his items. He has the Viper Staff
and the Ring Of Invisibility. Then, kill the last bear. You should
be sent directly to Hommlet.
