Easy max imbued gear

To imbue minions without having anything taken from your supply, forge a piece of gear without imbuing anything into it. Then, ugrade it and put as many minions into it as desired. Right when the animation begins, save and exit. Reload the game. The minions will have been imbued without anything being taken from your supply.

"Minion Multitude" achievement hint

Enter the dungeon with an ultimately imbued Arcanium Sword and Armor. For the sword, do not balance your minion sacrifices in order to get a bit of everything. Focus on increasing the damage (brown minions) and a small amount of the green minions to do plenty of damage with the power blow. For the armor, do not balance out your minion sacrifices to get a little bit of everything. Focus on increasing the defense (brown minions) and a small amount of the green minions to regenerate life slowly. Do not take any minions with you. When you go into the dungeon, approach each group of enemies slowly to face only a small amount at a time. When your health gets low, run away and regenerate.

Guard duty

When blue minions are on guard duty, they will rescue fallen peers and drag their half conscious form to you so that you can revive them. To place the blue minions on guard duty, hold RB press X, Y.

To prevent your goblin minions from drowning, just walk across the water. Do not try to guide them across a complex path. They will automatically find the closest path to reach you.

Rating 2

Easy Lifeforce hint

Use the staged fights at the tower dungeon to earn lifeforce. Use a combination of minions to set ambushes and revive losses. Note: You cannot use spells.

Rating 1

Weapons and armor hint

If you're in the early parts of the game and you die and have weak minions, go to Halfling Homes or the village of Spree and break all the objects to get new weapons and armor.

Rating 0

Pumpkin hat hint

Go to Spree or get just outside of Melvin's Kitchen and smash some pumpkins. Eventually, minions without hats will pick up a pumpkin and wear it on their heads.

Free upgrading glitch

Go to Forge and put up to 150 minions into your item, then pause game play when the sequence of the minions jumping in appears before any of them jump in. Quit and, when asked to save, choose "Yes". Resume the game and it will have put the minions in, but none will be lost.

Rollie strategy

Target-lock onto Rollie and run circles around him while he prepares attacks. After he attacks, you should be able to get directly behind him while he pauses and circle up to his side. Stand against the tank treads on his side and start hacking away at him. He will not move or try to hurt you. You can defeat him in each phase of his battle this way and it requires no minions to do so.
