Some spells look like one-monster-hit-type but are in fact something more. For example the great Dust to Dust spell will hurt any undead monsters that are standing in the line of the beam starting from the one closest to the caster. Knowing this you can kill more that one udead with a single D-to-D spell if only you can target the one standing behind some other (and if the targeted undead will die after single DtD strike, DtD strikes 3 times).

The same thing goes for spells like lightning or incinerate.

If you dont like the way the charachter movement and interactive controlls are set up, you can change them by goin into setup->keyboard, and from there change what you want, also in setup varoius controlls for graphis, sounds, etc

Daylight, night time, vampire and sight...
if you are a normal character you can maximize the amount of daylight you get(make it last longer)by going into setup at the beging of the day and switching the game from real time, to slow time, which makes the days last longer. at night switch it to real time for shorter nights. also for vampire, use realtime during the day, and slow time at night, this is for maximum night time combat bonusus.

if you ever have to re-instal your game or want to start a new game without destroying your old save games you can "back these up" by going to wizards and warriors file and pressing the "save" or "save game" (its one of these 2, i think...) and COPY the files and paste them in another folder, or save to a disk, (the folling if save to a disk)this is useful if your system crashes, you get viruse etc, you can also have unlimited save games. just saving to another folder well let you have unlimeted games, also and for both, its usefull for peace of mind when re-installing.
this is also usefulls when installing the patch or v-dub, incase you make a mistake, reload the files, and or good

when your lvl with not so good gear or resists(even at high lvls it exists...) remember to "dodge" spells. if the spell moves in a line from the caster to your charachter(s) just move aside and the spell well miss, this is real usefull in the serpent temple at the final confrontation, when Elysses??? casts the "bug swarm spell" step aside and le it go by, this only work well if you use a ranged attack, like a bow, and arrow, or throing knife, etc, they all stand back and cast while you throw, move behind the wall(in the hallway, dont enter the sacfrice room, this lets you step behind the wall without them coming closer) after there done there spells throw again, it take a while but it works, and you barely lose hp, just dont let them get to close.

Make Backups Of All Your Saves

Go into your Wizard&Warriors directory, where ever in your computer that directory is (mine is in my games folder) and "Copy" the "Save" folder from that directory. Go into into another folder somewhere else (I use a folder in the "My Documents" area) and paste the save folder into it.

Rename the new save folder something like "Crypt 1" or "Surugeon 2" etc. If you ever need to go back 10 or 20 saves ago. you can do so by going to your new folder of saves and copying them back overtop of the save files in your W&W "Save" folder.

Again when doing this, just remember to make a backup of any current saves before going back to any old saves.

This trick is especially useful when accidently dropping items somewhere and forgeting where you last had them. (I found a dropped Dragon Shard using this trick) Also useful for when your notebook tool doesn't record conversations with certain characters. (Mine never recorded my conversation with D'Soto's Ghost, and I had to go back to an earlier save to find out was the secret word was agian.)

Hope this tip helps. I use it all the time.

This is for the upatched version only.

You can get Level 7 early in the game.

Brotherhood of Promise Mekdawa Quest
Magic Shoppe Scabban Quest
Armory Toad Village Quest
Guild of Shadow Ten Gold Coins Quest

Once you have completed the quest do the following. The first person must be selected before you enter the guild. Click on each person in line, then go back to the first person and repeat going through the sequence again for a total of ten times. You will have to wait for the guild master to catch up but when he is finished you will be awarded with outstanding achievement and will be a level 7 in the guild. I have not discovered the quest for the rest of the guilds but when I do I will post them.

(All characters had the above quest)
The above will work (unpatched only) with any quest from any guild save Valeia Priest #2 (the gold donation). If you're soloing, have a pack mule come to the shop with you & alternate with him. The total of ten times is not necessary; you need only do it as many times as you want to advance. Note that Valeia Warrior #1, Wizard #2, and Priest #3 don't give level advancement.
