Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition
Submitted by: David K.
When inside Kresselack's Tomb, past the first big door, will be a Skeletal
Mage named Mytos. If you are polite with him, and opt for a nonviolent
solution, you will get extra experience points before the fight. To level
up a character easily, have only one character. Go through the first quests
at the starting town. Then, save the character as an import. Start a new
game and load the import. Do the same quests as if you were using a new
character. It does more difficult to level up, but it is possible to get
your character to level 22 before going to the next town.
Easy and early gold:
When in Easthaven, do the quest involving Jhonyn and the blue-skinned
woman and earn a pearl. Return to talk to her (immediately before she
disappears) . If you are quick, you can talk to her again while she is
disappearing and she will go through the same dialogue -- and you will
get another pearl. If you are quick enough, you can get three pearls,
each worth 100 gold pieces.
