Get all 18s in stats

Go to the point buy screen and 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.

Prevent NPC hireling looting

Rather than 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. Usually when you try this, the NPC refuses to drop the item, but it works with unidentified items while in the barter menu.

Easy experience hints

-Hire an NPC and just kill him or her. This works well if you hire Otis, Elmo, Lareth, or any high level character.

-After earning 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. Once 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 first starting 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 possible, and since you only are using one created character, you will level him/her up many 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 great 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 leveling 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 difficult 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. While 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 couple 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 extremely fast.

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, earn 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 significantly helpful if the character's Intelligence is 18.

Ring Of Invisibility

There are severals 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 final bear. You should be sent directly to Hommlet.
