UPDATED 7/1/2007 - See last two posts for most recent Tips and Tricks. Interested in how to get 344,000 Skill XP in one shot? Or how about going to your second quest (scratch that - FIRST QUEST) with an Obsidian weapon? Or how about killing Jack in two shots? If so, read on. This is my little guide on how to max out your stats and beat the game in under 4 hours. WARNING: there will be Spoilers throughout this post. ----- Well, I’ve been playing Fable TLC on the PC for about a month now. I picked it for cheap and have definitely given it a work out. Since I got a lot of initial tips from this site that helped me in my games, I thought I’d return the favor by posting some of the refinements I’ve found. This is not a grand compendium or a be-all-end-all by any stretch of the imagination. I just wanted to pass along to the people who have helped me some of the little things I’ve found. Cheers. Basics before we begin – just in case you don’t know: ‘Buy all/Sell all’ trick – Fable’s economy is based on Scarcity. That means things are cheaper when there is a lot in stock, and you sell things for more when the shop has none in stock. You can make a lot of money by buying a shop out of something that it has a lot of, then selling it back to the shop at an inflated price – repeatedly – without even leaving the store. In the beginning Will potions work well, mid-game Emeralds work well – late game Emeralds and Diamonds do well. I offer some advanced tips on this trick below. Hero Save trick – During a quest you can Hero Save and then Load your game, keeping the XP, gold, and items already earned. This works best in the Hobbe Cave quest getting you two extra silver keys, a Will Masters potion, and about 30,000 XP. People also like to do it during the Arena for a lot of XP. Don’t use it more than 6 times or your profile will get corrupted. I don’t use it very often because I don’t like to retrace my steps. On Teenage/Apprentice training: After completing your initial training with the Guildmaster, you will be given the opportunity to “Play” with Whisper. I suggest doing this because it can be very beneficial for your early economy. Go back to the melee ring to be graded. If you beat Whisper while only getting hit at most 1 time, you’ll get an A+ and an Iron Katana. This may not seem like much, but it can actually be pretty handy in fighting Wasps, and at the very least can be sold for a 100+ gold, which is good this early in the game. You can go to the Archery ring and get graded to get a crossbow, which again translates into an early 100+ gold. One trick here, how well you need to do depends on how you did in your training with the guildmaster. It’s easiest when you score around 40 on the first test with him. That will mean you only need a little over that to get an A+ on your graded test. Finally, the most lucrative test is the Will training. This doesn’t seem to open up until after you’ve tested at one of the other ones though. I haven’t noticed any difference for grading between the first test and the second test, i.e. I’ve scored 24 on both the first test and 24 on the second graded test and it still gave me an A+. Your reward here is a Will potion and a Rez potion. Very nice and translates to an extra 600+ gold very early in the game.
