Beer Barrel Mob Massacre [Easy XP Trick]
Before attempting this trick, you’ll need to have Telekinesis+2. Once you’ve got that unlocked and ready, it’s time to begin.
Where to Find the Beer Barrel
To start up this trick, you’ll need one of the massive Beer Barrels in Cyseal. These 500kg monsters usually belong in cellars, but there’s one up the road northwest of the market square. Head up the steps and you should find a large barrel on stilts behind some wooden barriers.
How to Lift the Barrel
At the barrel, start by unbinding your secondary character then placing the barrel in their inventory.
The barrel incredibly heavy, but as long as they can place it in their inventory you’re good. They won’t be able to move.
Switch back to your main character and leave the secondary character (with the barrel) behind. Run outside Cyseal and enter combat.
How to Massacre Mobs for Fast XP
While in combat, open the inventory menu and send the Beer Barrel to your main character. Throw the barrel out of your inventory, and then use Telekinesis+2 to nudge the Beer Barrel directly onto your foes.
They’ll explode in a bloody mess. All basic spawning enemies in the overworld map can be killed this way. Nothing can survive 500kg.
Now you can travel across the map, picking up the barrel and sending it to your partner with TK+2, then crushing every encounter (literally) in one turn.
