Overlord - Raising Hell

No Loss Of Minions When Upgrading:
When Upgrading put you minions in and press forge just before the first
minion jumps pause and quit saying yes to auto-save. Wait for the writing
saying auto-saved to disappear then load your file. It should be upgraded
with out loss of minions.(You can only do 100 minions at a time otherwise
some will die, and if after you quit you hear the noise that sounds like
the plop of a minion falling in the smelter of you see one fall in you
will lose that minion because the screen fades away after you quit it still
goes on for about a second so be careful).
Skipping the First Troll:
On Legendary, the first troll is very hard and consumes alot of minions.
There's an easy way to completely skip him (Make sure you have 10 minions):
Head straight to the troll, and you'll get the cutscene of him getting
ready to face you. After that, send all of your minions to open the gate
where the crane is, and rush there (the troll will probably kill a few of
your minions as they open the gate, but that's better than wasting 20 - 40
minions trying to kill him and also, if the troll is blocking the path,
simple lead him away and head through the gate). Once done, go to the crane
and an autosave will occur. This is where the trick comes in: That autosave
assumes you defeated the troll as you went further than you were suppose
to, therefore, simply leave the area and come back, you'll find the troll
has vanished as the game thinks he has been defeated.
Weapon And Armor Advice:
If using the Mace upgrade, speed and damage (knockback is useless, if they
fall back they have time to recover and if fighting multiple enemies your
minions could chase after the enemy and leave you defenseless. Fire damage
has no point if you have a fair amount of Reds) If using the sword upgrade
damage and a little speed to not leave yourself open. When upgrading armor
focus on being well rounded, but not as much on the mana if you have mana
regeneration. Try not to use the Axe.
Strong Minion Force:
Are you tired of the tedious task of filling your helmet with minions, if
so then don't worry, I've got the answer. Lets start with 15 max minions
try to use 10 brown and and 5 blue.
20 max: use 10 brown, 5 red and 5 green or 5 of each.
25 max: use 10 brown, 5 red, 5 green and 5 blue after that just try to
use 10 of each or as high as you can get to that.
Easy Minion Souls:
Go to your dungeon and get out blues, reds, and browns/greens (your choice).
Select one of the types of beetles that you want to fight. Depending on which
soul you need, you must pick the beetle for that (blue or Dazzler, red for
Magma, brown for Battler, or green for Puff). Enter the arena. Take all the
minions and place a marker. Move it all the way back up against the gate. Go
over to the beetles, but only to get one, two, or three. If you get too many,
lock on to one then back away quickly. The extra beetle will start to fall
back, then stop. Let the others catch up, but not touch you. Run backwards
until you reach your minions. The reds will already have its health down a
small fraction, then the brown or green will start attacking. You will
probably have one or two minions die, so the blue will move in and heal them.
Keep repeating that tactic. You will kill them all with a maximum loss of
one minion. However, you will gain about 50 to 75 Minion Souls.
A very very easy to accumulate life force for your minions is to have defeated
one of each beetle. With that done go to the dungeon and select any of them,
go in a lone and lure either one or two beetles to you, kill them rinse and
repeat, there are a total of 25 bugs per round of any times, they drop three
life force spheres, killing all 25 will net you 75 life force. Depending on
the type of course.
