Turn Stolen Items into Non-Stolen Items
Take stolen items to a merchant (fence) that buys stolen merchandise. Sell the item and without exiting the Buy/Sell screen go back to Buy. Now scroll down to Sold Items and buy the item back for the same amount you sold it. The Red Hand icon will now be gone.
Stealth Chest Looting Exploit
If you are trying to loot a chest while in stealth mode but the percentage of being caught is too high/risky, simply press “B” to back out of the chest inventory and then press “A” to loot the chest again. You’ll see that the percentage of risk has dropped. You can keep repeating this process until you have zero risk of being caught.
Easy Additional EXP
Make Corgan Hold available for fast traveling. It is in the western edge of Tala-Rane, in the Plains of Erathell. Just inside the door of Corgan Hold is a shrine that gives +20% XP for a limited time. Activate the shrine, head back outside, then fast travel to your next quest or dungeon to earn easy additional XP while the shrine is active.
Cheap Armor and Weapon Repair
When you need your armor or weapons repaired, don’t wast gold paying smiths to do the repairs (they overcharge a lot!). Instead just buy as many Repair Kits that you can find at merchants. Once you’re about 10 hours into the game they should be pretty easy to find. Try to hunt down backpacks to have more room to carry them. This will save you a lot of gold, especially once you acquire rarer weapons and armor that is expensive to have repaired at a smith.
Manipulate Random Loot
You can manipulate loot in dungeons/houses and possibly other places in Amalur.
When you enter the area all loot is randomly generated in the chests/enemies, so SAVE before entering a house/dungeon.
If you find items that you don’t like or don’t need, reload the save. But remember ALL LOOT IS RANDOM. Good luck manipulating!
Easy Lockpicking Without Spending Points
Don’t hold “D” while picking locks, tap it fast to advance and if you see lockpick slightly moving – stop and change lockpick position. Start from left or right and when lockpick is about to brake (it will twitch) stop and try again after you moved him for 1/4 of a scale. Practice several times to master. No need to spend attribute points on lockpicking.
Easy Ring from Well of Souls
When starting the story mode, you are asked would you like to skip the tutorial. Choose ‘don’t skip’ and play the demo all the way to the rock troll and defeat it. By looting the troll, you will receive a ring that you wouldn’t get by skipping the tutorial.
Save Before Salvage
Salvage garnered from items are randomized, so you would do yourself an immense favor by savingÂ the game before you salvage a weapon or armor at the Forge. If the components harvested are to your liking, save the game; if not, load your previous game and try again.
Remember that saving and loading your game in Kingdoms of Amalur is quite possibly your most potent weapon.
Easy ‘Juggler’ Achievement / Trophy
This requires both a bow (preferably of weaker stats) and a longsword. You must know the move Upheaval for the long sword as well which is one of the first and most useful sword moves in the game. All you do is perform an Upheaval and fire arrows into the now airborne target and you have your Achievement/Trophy.
