10 Weird Tips & Tricks You Need To Know
Here are the best tips and tricks we’ve found so far. Some are fairly simple, others are very specific, and others are flat-out glitches that are going to be very useful.
#1: Train with Captain Bernard for free to improve your weapon handling skills. It’s free and will help you equip stronger weapons that are out of your reach.
#2: Learn Alchemy right away — Saviour Schnapps is the first recipe. You can cook 3 potions at a time, for relatively cheap manual saving.
#3: Hunting is illegal, so cook meat at a campfire to make it legal. Now you can sell the hunted meat without getting in trouble with guards.
#4: Speaking of illegal activities, if you have illegal stolen items in your inventory, simply place them in storage and wait a few days. The illegal tag will eventually disappear.
#5: Serve a 10 day Prison Sentence to revive every dead NPC. If you accidentally killed someone important, just stay in prison for 10 days. Though, getting a prison sentence that long can be tricky.
#6: Pick nettles / poison herbs to get a permanent +2 to toughness. This will unlock a permanent “Resistant” secret perk that stays with you forever. Very simple to get.
#7: Only pick locks during the day when everyone is out of the house. At night, occupants have amazing hearing. Steal the expensive gambeson in the Rattay clothing store for the useful 0 noise modifier.
#8: Jump all the time. Never stop jumping! Each jump gives you +1 XP to toughness. Similarly, never stop picking flowers. Eventually (past Level 10) picking flowers will give you +1 XP to strength.
#9: Chests in lodgings are shared, so you can pay to stay at an inn, then dump all your extra items into the chest. The shared chest will be available at fast travel points and other lodgings.
#10: Keep a bow and arrow handy for bird’s nests. Shooting down a bird’s nest can get you silver, or even expensive jewelry.
