Risen - Level 32 in Chapter 1 Without Cheating!
Risen returned Piranha Bytes to what they do best. An RPG with great characters, story, and a desire to keep playing. The one fault that I have found with Risen is the length of gameplay. The game has so many options to improve your character, but the limited levels forces you to pick a few attributes to focus on. No player can possibly master all weapons, magic, and skills. Until now! I found Piranha Bytes' usual hidden trick for unlimited XP and money without cheating! No cheat codes, minsky, or the rest! Since I have always thought that cheat codes took something away from what the originators of a game meant for you to experience, I have always searched for the secrets that the publishers put into the games for those that desire more. This trick does require a major commitment of time to really get you ahead of the game, but is well worth it.
- Piranha Bytes - Story Tellers of the RPG
Most Americans have never heard of Piranha Bytes. Even the best and most addicted gamers that I know have never played their games. But Piranha Bytes has created some of the best RPG games for the PC that I...
From the beginning, I understood the need for the Joke spell in the game. It's really easy to hit the wrong person during a fight and have them attack you. I just couldn't understand why there were so many of them, until I met Robart. (His name first intrigued me after playing all of the Gothic games and seemed a bit suspicious!) Robart is a swamp farmer outside of the Don's swamp camp. He will gladly buy weeds from you and give you XP for them as well. Find as many weed plants as you can, join the Monastery, sell them to him. Then beat him up, take them back, and flash his memory away with the Joke spell. He'll buy them again and give you more XP!
- Unlimited XP and Money In Gothic 2 Without Cheating
Gothic 2 (and the expansion Night of the Raven) was an unbelievable game. It had a great story, great characters, and great action. I played it through twice before the add-on and twice afterwards. Piranha...
If you are not a member of the Monastery, your Joke spells will be too limited. I have been messing around with this for a few nights and now am level 32. It is still chapter 1 and I have an extra 120 XP points, a strength of 120 (with potions of course) and cannot decide how much further I want to go. Maxing out all spells, bow, crossbow, staffs, and getting level 6 in swords and axes seems like a good idea, but this will take some serious time. It will take me a few hours to gain the next two levels, but I'll probably go for at least a few more! Since levels require more XP each time, it becomes increasingly difficult to level this way. Maxing out everything might be a bit ambitious, but I'll let you know how far I get!
- Why Gothic Was One of the Best RPGs of All Time
Before I had ever even heard of Gothic or Piranha Bytes, I had played most of the major games that were released to any fanfare in America. I had done a fair bit of game reviews for a local publication and by...
UPDATE: I have a new post about my current level and a extra method for gaining even more XP without cheating!
I'm now level 67 - how far should I push it?
