Achievements are not cheats.

Mark Burnham

On November 11, 2011 at 1:09 pm

@durrrr While Achievements are not “cheats” in the classic usage of that term (they’re not up-up-down-down style cheat codes, we get that) Achievements represent an extra layer of content in a game that extends beyond simply playing through the main campaign. We try and build our cheats pages into giant compendiums of helpful information, documenting every code, hack, glitch, secret and unlockable we can possibly find. Basically, we want our cheats pages to help you enjoy everything the game has to offer, and that is very much the plan with this page.

Since the game just launched, however, we have not yet had a chance to unearth everything, but we will. Our Dragon Age 2 Cheats page is a pretty good example of the depth we shoot for with our cheats pages: http://gamefront.com/dragon-age-2-cheats/

If you stick with us, bookmark this page and give us a shot, we’ll do our best to blow this page out to the max. This page is merely a shell of its future self, and it’s providing you with all of the “extra content” information we have found so far.

Stay tuned!

Don’t know if ye already know, or if it’s been mentioned – but there’s an easy way to reach 50 in Archery. In the “Love Triangle” just make sure you help Faendal instead of Sven, take Faendal with you as a companion . You’ve now got free access to his inventory. Make yourself 600g (that is what is needed for the last levels he can train you, so you can start earlier) and let Faendal train you. Your gold is now in his inventory – grab back your gold, level, let him train you, grab gold, level… and repeat pattern till you have 50 in archery.

Oh, if I was a bit vauge – why ye need to level is cause he can only train you 5 steps/level, so ye need to level before he can train you again. Cheapest, and easiest way to get imba in archery – there might be a risk that you’ll get unbalanced though, but hey, now ye atleast have the choice and knowledge (most surely already know and noticed this – just telling this for the few that haven’t)

To reset a merchant’s gold:

Kill them

Quickload.

Useful for selling lots of items to the Thieves Guild fence without the wait.

Hey HAM,

Sadly, Gabriella cannot be married. Look forward to future modifications, maybe you’ll be able to marry her then!

Didn’t see a submit section so will throw this here. Ask the Grey beards for the locations for words of power. To speed up the process, use shouts while in those dungeons and occasionally a courier will run up and hand you a note from a friend telling you of a location of power. This will eventually net you 6 dragon priest masks. I forget exactly which dungeons have them. The seventh mask is in Forelhost SE of Riften. The last is obtainable right before going through the portal into Sonvengarde (or however it’s spelled). If you miss it, not sure you can go back to get it so very important to grab before jumping into portal. Once you have all 8, go to Labyrinthian. Outside Shalidor’s maze there is a covered hut thing. Inside you will find a skeleton with a note next to it. Near the note you will find a wodden mask. You may have to look close depending on screen resolution, I know I did. Put the mask on. You will be transported to what looks like the past. Place all 8 masks on their busts and the dragon head will open revealing Konahrik, the 9th mask. Remove all masks from busts for later use, remove wooden mask and enjoy!

Easy 100 Sneak Skill Exploit:
Find some enemies (any will do, though it works best in dungeons with enemies who don’t walk around or move until engaged). Get close enough for sneak skill to rise, but not so close as to be detected. Walk into a wall or corner so that you won’t move but are still technically walking. Use a rubber band to hold the stick in that direction and your sneak will continue to rise. It takes a long time to max out, so I usually do it before bed and leave it all night (just make sure you’re really not moving first, corners work best).

if u want to lvl up sneak earlier in the game then read on. Durig the first mission when u reach the bear sneak towards the right where there is a large boulder and go around the rock in a corner ull be behind the bear. And walk forward use an elastic band for controllers or press the key on the keyboard to continuosly walk. And wait it will take a good 6 hours, but u should reach lvl 18 when its done. Come back to it every hour and lvl up and unlock perks in either sneak or any of the others. But i suggest unlocking all sneak perks an use the left overs for a magic, archery or weapons skill because ull be vulnerable against enemies because ur such a high lvl and they will be.

SKYRIM IS ONE OF THE BEST GAMES EVER.

Addtl cheats.

There is an easy way to get your conjuration to 100%. Just find any dead body and use the spell soul trap over and over and eventually it will get there.

Also getting illusion to 100% by using muffle over and over. this works best at the wizards collage as you don’t run out of magic.

This also applies to destruction to make it 100% if you can find one of the rare characters that you just can’t kill and doesn’t fight back much. (I find children are more abundant and so far just won’t die) just flame on or any other spell of your choice. best when used with items that refill your magic quickly. however it does take a while like all good things.

I notice you’ll don’t have the duplicate armor glitch all you have to do is select a manequin and place your armor on it without leaving the looting menu take it back. Next you must go through a loading screen go back in the room and the armor will be back. If you enchanted it enchantment will not be dublicared but preset ones (mask robes etc.) will duplicate
