-To collect unlimited amounts of gold, after defeating the Spider Boss in Everlight Temple use the elevator to get out. Unlock the Netherworld Gate to this zone, then return and open the secret room upstairs using the Overlord switch. There are treasure chests inside this room that will give you around 1000 gold every time you visit. Warp to another gate to reset the map, then return to collect it again. Repeat as desired.
-Enslave both Nordberg and Everlight for large chests of gold that spawn when the area is reset. Then, teleport between the two locations to collect from both of them and reset the other area for your return. Each set of chests has at least 1,000 gold. Note: You must completely dominate a town to get 1,000 gold from the chest spawning sites. All 100 citizens must be enslaved--for each 10 citizens not enslaved, 100 gold will be subtracted.
-After the assault on Empire City, return there to find no troops, several boxes with the highest grade armor and weapons, and over 2,000 gold per visit.
Lifeforce hints: Note: By the time you get to this area you should have picked up two Forge Stones. Go to Forge and buy the Evil Eye Helmet, which gives you two Lifeforce instead of one for each collected. Go to the area where you need to recover the Green Hive. While making your way out with it, you will reach an area with two big opponents that shoot the blue beam gun. One will be roaming up top while the other stands next to a wheel to open the door next to him. In the same room is a floor plate that releases the gnomes behind a cage door. Release the gnomes and use them to help you kill the both of the blue beam gun opponents. After they are dead, return to the gnome cage and open it again. They will keep respawning. Try setting yourself near the top of the stairs going down while facing toward the cage. Then, send out your minions. While they are out hunting, set your controller to keep sending out minions. When not killing, they are collecting Lifeforce at double the rate due to the helmet.
-After acquiring the green hive, return to Everlight fortress. Get at least ten reds and whatever minions of the other colors desired, then go to the center of the courtyard where you hear the gnomes. Place the reds at the bottom of the stairs facing the gnome's prison, then activate the switch to let them out. The gnomes will run out but will be scared of the reds and move back. About five or six gnomes will run out at a time. Allow the reds to scare them into the corner. After a while, when you think there are a reasonable amount of gnomes, send the rest of the horde up there to finish them off fast. Some might get past you--either let them go or track them down and end them. You will only receive reds, browns, and green life forces. If done correctly, you should have no problem with dispatching the 1,000 gnomes and will never have to worry about running low on your favorite color minions.
When you domain minions, leave one or more minions in the Minion Tower. This way, your minions will automatically spawn into their spawning pit. If you domain all of your minions, the automatic spawning will be disabled.
Complete the following Devourer sections by performing the corresponding tasks:
First Devourer section hint: Get about 40 reds and 10 blues, then let the blues clean up the place of all the slime and let your reds attack the Devourer. When he leaves, clean up the slime with the blues by dragging them over it.
Second Devourer section hint: Get 15 browns and kill all the soldiers on the right. Let the browns kill the archers, then go to the far left corner from the entrance and kill the remaining archers with your browns. Return to exchange your browns for 40 reds and 10 blues, then put 20 reds (on a banner) on each of the two plateaus and wait until the Devourer leaves for the third part. Then, clean up the slime with the blues.
Last Devourer section hint: Get 40 reds and 10 blues, then put four groups of ten reds on the following strategic locations (on the balcony in front of the beast; down the stairs on the left side of the beast; behind the beast; on the right side of the beast). Drag around your blues to prevent the spread of the slime. Do this while standing to the right of the stairs to get to Solarius quickly when he is regurgitated by the beast to drain him with your evil presence spell.
When you domain minions, left one or more minions in the Minion Tower. By doing this, your minions will automatically spawn into their spawning pit. If you domain all of your minions, the automatic spawning will be disabled.
