Hold the Right Mouse Button while playing dice. The game will be slightly faster and
easier to play when you do not have to wait for the dice animation.
When you gain a level, meditate and set your talent points as usual. After the meditation,
go back to the Talents screen, and Right-click all of the Talents you just learned. You
should hear a ringing sound, but no visual change. You can now meditate again and have all
the Talents again.
Unlimited talent distribution:
After you get new talents, meditate to distribute them. After you come out of meditation,
go to the Hero panel and right-click on the enhancements you just used the talents on.
You will hear the money sound, but no visible change. You can meditate again and have
those talents back, and will still have the enhancements you had previously used the
talents on. Note: This can only be done in unpatched versions of the game.
Infinite Skill Points:
After meditating near a fireplace in order to allocate your skill points, head back to
your skill tree and right click on skills currently allocated. A ringing sound should
be heard. After closing the skill tree, go to the fireplace and meditate again. The
skill will be allocated from the previous spent point(s), but the point(s) will also
be ready to be spent again! This gives you infinite skill points to spend at your
leisure, but remember -- if this isn't done quickly, the points won't be given back
to you to spend a second time (or more).
Note: This can be done as of patch v1.2. There is a small crevice between the fence and
a small hut to the top left corner of the field. Use this to regenerate health or use
potions. Neither the dogs nor Beast will be able to get to you as long as you stay in
this opening. Do not worry about the villagers or Abigail, as the dogs will not attack
them. If you have upgraded Ard Sign for STUN, it makes the fight a lot easier. Aim for
Beast and cast your Sign. If he is stunned, simply do an auto-attack and you will
trigger a one-hit kill.
Monsters and Blade Oil:
To make oils, you must first have the ability (in the Intelligence talent tree).
Secondly, you must have high quality Grease (fat) in your inventory as well as the
For oils with 3 or 4 ingredients, you can use Goose Fat or Suet.

with a special oil.

Unlimited Skill Points:
Note: This only works on the unpatched version of the game; I did it on the UK
version. As of Patch 1.2, this doesn't work; it was probably just a bug.
When you're leveling your character, allocate your skill points as usual, but
remember the skills you chose. Meditate, and immediately afterwards, go to the
character screen and view your skills. Right click on all of the skills you had
chosen during the leveling process. You should hear a ring/chime every time you
do this, as if you were canceling a skill. Meditate again and you should have
the skill points you spent before. You can reallocate and repeat the process.
Unlimited talent distribution:
Note: This can only be done in unpatched versions of the game. After you get new
talents, meditate to distribute them. After you come out of meditation, go to the
Hero panel and right-click on the enhancements you just used the talents on. You
will hear the money sound, but no visible change. You can meditate again and have
those talents back, and will still have the enhancements you had previously used
the talents on.
Removing the curse from the Striege:
After entering the crypt of the Striege you cannot leave the crypt while the Striege
is still alive. In order to remove the curse, you must survive a night with the
Striege. The Striege is a strong fighter, but slow. Simply run through the crypt
until the last candle on the sarcophagus is extinguished.
