Critical Hit Glitch
NOTE: This can only be done in multiplayer mode.
Whenever a character uses critical hit (ranger, barbarian, berserker) any other player in the game will automatically have critical hit activated, even outside of the zone.

Double Drundar Locks
At the start of the game, if you choose to be on the evil side you'll end up at the city of Drundar. You'll need to find eight locks to access the arena where some bosses reside. There's a glitch that allows you to double the amount of locks you have found. Firstly you unlock some of the locks then save, and exit the game. When you next load your game you will have double the amount of locks on the lock counter than you previously had. Unlocking the rest of the locks will not affect your game (even though it will say you have unlocked more than 8 locks). This can only be done once.

Easy Dozekar Kill Glitch
For this glitch to work you need tons of arrows or mana potions, or a lot of patience. Run up to Dozekar until he breathes fire directly at you. Back step while gaurding until you get to a "Sweet Spot". this is where Dozekar will continue to breathe fire at you, but you are at a distance where it doesnt hit you and you dont need to block. Without moving, you can just unload arrows, axes, or magic into him until he dies.

Faster Shaman Movement
When your shaman has giant growth, cast it on him and find a save point. When he's big, save and exit your game. When you load it back up, he will be normal size but move as fast as he did when he was big.

Fight Mithaniel Marr (evil side) or Cazic-Thule (good side) as many times needed
First, you need to have beaten the game, this works on any difficulty. Depending on which side you chose will determine which boss you will be fighting over and over again. Now for what you have to do. Enter Plane of Tranquility (evil) or Plane of Fear (good), fight the boss determined by your side. Once the boss is defeated, you can loot all the armor or gear dropped off by him. After they have died, click the "start" button, then click "End this mission." When the Planar viewer is brought up, select Plane of Nightmares. Wait for Plane of Nightmares to load up, once it has loaded, click "start" again and select "End this mission" again. When Planar Viewer pops up again, select Plane of Tranquility or Plane of Fear. When the area loads, you will see it has refreshed, and the boss will be there again, you will be able to kill them and repeat.

Infinite Attribute Points
This is easiest to do after the very first mission. After you fight the first boss you should get the message to press select for a level up. DON'T PRESS SELECT. Instead continue through the portal and go to the bonus round with the four horsemen. Now as soon as you enter press select and distribute your 3 attribute points. The skill point you have to place WILL NOT carry over so put it anywhere. Now let the enemy kill you. Select try again and your exp meter will be full again. Press select and you will see that the 3 points you put there last time are still there but you have 3 more to distribute........repeat as desired.

YOu can easily duplicate any items you have in a single player game. Just simply save the gave of the charcter with the item you want to duplicate. Then start a new game, choose the missions, then import the charcter with the item you want to duplicate. Then import a charcter you want to give the duplicate item to. This CAN be the same character. Drop all the items off the first charcter, have the second one pick them up. Save the game. Then create another new game,importing the second charcter. He will start the game with the items, and the first charcter will also still have those same items. You can use this to give godly equipment to new charcters, over and over again, making infinite money.

Starting the game with both the Archaeologist's Shovel and the Words of Spiritual Harmony
Normally, when you start a new game after finishing in adventurous or any other difficulty, you don't have any quest item any more.
This glitch must be done the 1st time you do the Faydark Forest's mission.
Enter the Faydark Forest and take the archaeologist's shovel. Once you complete what you had to do, return to Firiona or Natasla to access the plane of nightmare. In that zone, pick up the words of spiritual harmony and when it's done leave this mission to return to the Faydark Forest. In the mission you restart, break/open everything and you'll have a 2nd archaeologist's Shovel. But this time, you'll be able to get the bloodstone of Faydark thanks to the words of spiritual harmony. Once it's completed. Do the plane of nightmare's mission and pick up also everything. You'll have 2 words of spiritual harmony too. Next, go to the last area and kill the last boss. Save your game and import your character in couragous mode. You won't have any quest item anymore except the game only removed 1 archaeologist's shovel and 1 word of spiritual harmony on the 2 you had in adventurous mode. Do this glicth in couragous to start with these items on champion difficulty. And do that in champion too to have these items when starting on legendary difficulty.

Berserker Axes Trick
Summoned Berserker axes can be augmented with an upgrade item and any axes of the same type summoned post-hence will be added to the stack, complete with the augmented effect. The effect will remain on the axe stack forever so long as not all of them are thrown.

With this little trick, it's possible to increase the levels of a brand new character rapidly. You need a high level character that has finished Legendary (Cazic Thule may be a bit easier, although this works with either final boss). You will also need a two player game. Although you can do this outside of the final boss battle, you can do a bit of farming while you're at it.
Start the final battle as normal. If your new character gets killed, s/he will still get the experience from the battle, so you do not need to worry about keeping the new one alive. Kill the final boss like normal and collect all of the goodies he drops, minus the final Innoruuk shard. Once you do that, exit the mission via the Pause menu and you'll be back at the stage select screen. Pick another mission, exit that one and go back to the final boss. You can now repeat this over and over to powerlevel your new character. You should be gaining about a level per kill well throughout the high 20s and low 30s.

RTA Ultimate Champion
First you need both CON and RTA to perform this trick, you will also need to have played CON until you have reached the Giant Air king in Champion level. Attack the Air king till he is almost defeated,Do not kill him, then run back to the save point and save your game. If you do not have a large amount of Explosive potions in your inventory gate back to the island and buy a few and gate back to the save point. Now use the item dupe trick to build up a major stockpile of explosive potions, 50+ should be good, and save your game. Remeber, do not kill the Giant Air King yet, he must be alive in your save game for this to work.
Using Champions of Norath create a new character in a two player game, the first player is the only character you need worry about, so make that character the one you want to max out. Assign all the attribute points to the first player, name them and move on to your second player. When you get to the second players attribute point DO NOT ASSIGN ANY POINTS, back out till you are back to the first players skills menu, you should now have 20 attribute points to distribute again. You can go back and forth like this til 3 of the attributes are 100 and 1 is less then 100, if you have points left over when all you attributes are at 100 you will not be able to move beyond that menu and will have to start over. After you have your first player finished assign the points to your second player, name them "a", and continue into the game. After the intro and before moving any characters hit the Start button and goto add/remove players, and remove the second player. Now head straight for the save point, DO NOT KILL ANY ORCS. Your characters has to be completely exp. free for this to work.
Load your saved game from Tower in the Clouds before you kill the Air King. Hit start and goto add/remove player and import the character you created with no exp. into the second player slot. Drop all the explosive potions the first player has and let the second player pick them all up and save. Hit start and goto add/remove players and import the character with no exp. you just saved in Tower of Clouds into the first players slot and delete the second player. Now save this character in a new slot, do not overwrite any of the previous saves, you will need them later. Now run forward to the almost defeated air king and start throwing explosive potions at him until he dies, if you did this right it should only take about 15-20 potions, just avoid his attacks by running in a tight circle around him till he drives his lighting staff into the ground and is hunched over, then pelt him with potions. Upon his defeat your new character should be a level 50, you can hit select but DO NOT ASSIGN ANY ATTRIBUTE POINTS TO THIS CHARACTER. Let the clip with Lazlo run and then go back to the save point and save you game in a new spot. If you want you can import your character from the original Air king fight, drop all their armour and weapons and have your new character pick them up before saving, just make sure you save this level 50 chararcter, and I repeat, do not assign any attribute points.
Start a new one player game on Return to Arms, it can be either Adventours or Courageous, Adv works best if your just wanting to get it done, Cour may be good for another level up. Import your level 50 character from CON, he should now read as a level 51 and have 147 attribute points, do not assign them yet. Complete the Plane of War quest under good or evil, and unlock the side quest Blood Bath. Start Blood Bath read the bit about 4 potions and press X, before the Death horse gets a chance to attack you press Select, now you may assign the 147 attribute points however you like, do not use the skill points. Exit your character menu and let the Death horse kill you, Choose try again and once again the bit about the 4 potions hit X then Select, you will have another 147 points to distribute. You can do this over and over again as much as you want, and it goes a lot quicker then 3, 6, or 9 from just the start of the game. When you have the attributes to what you want say Strength 3500 Int. 3500 Dex. 3500 Stamina 4000 then you can assign your skill points however you want and finsh Blood Bath, the four horsemen should be no problem at this point. One last tip, level up your stamina last, you want the horsemen to be able to kill you quickly at first so that this goes faster, if you load up your stimina first it will make you harder to kill.
