SAVE OFTEN!!!!!


Save before you enter or leave town.
Save before you enter a dungeon.
Save somewhere inside the dungeon especially at tricky bits.

SAVE SAVE SAVE!!!!

JOIN THE GUILDS!!!

Join as many guilds as you can and do the Guild quests! These are very important in character development!

JOINING OTHER GUILDS!

Will give credit for this one to Morrak who posted this earlier today (not the first to post it but we'll give M credit for inspiring this whole thread). To join more guilds have your characters take role ascention quests that will allow them to join a different guild and then go back to the first guild and cancel the role ascention quest. This can be a bit expensive early in the game but certainly is worth the effort!

My tip: Get one of your characters specialized in Moon Magic, and get the spells "Create Portal", "Teleport", and "Call of Home" ASAP. Two of these, "Create Portal" and "Call of Home" are available in spellbook form at the local Temple (special items in the guild). This makes travel in the Gael Serran much easier.

Definitely get this BEFORE Dragonspire!

Characters who can specialize in Moon Magic: Bard, Warlock, Ninja, and Assassin.

Yet another tip: do NOT change roles on spellcasters until you get all the top-level spells you want. Priests: do NOT change roles until you get your Vine magic! Wizards: do NOT change roles until you get your Stone magic! Specialize in these, if need be at first, until you are ready to change to a new role.

The exception to this, of course, is Warlock, which allows you to learn all prior spell craft with no penalty. Still, it's probably a good idea to get quite a few spells under your belt before switching to Warlock, for then you're encumbered with learning a minimum of FOUR spell groups, not just two.

Learn the spells that cast enchantments. Once you are powerful enough, make specialized weapons and armor. Get your blessings and enchantment skills very high.

SPIDER NECTAR and Empty Flasks -

Many players have discovered that this works like a cure poison potion but never use all of them on your characters. You need to save at least one to open the Naga Head to enter the rest of the Serpent Temple area.
