Fable Hints & Cheats
Easter Egg: FCC BalverinesIn the Save The Archaeologist quest, you must guess the name of the Demon Door that he is in. There are four stones from which you must decipher his name. The letters on the stones are I-H-S-T. There are three words that you can make. HITS,THIS,and...well, the other word. If you spell that -other word- then two Balverines will come and attack you.
Frying Pan!What you need is the Treasure Clues 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6. You will find this in Orchard Garden where there's a barn with nothing in it. The barn has hay cubes near it. There are three hay cubes on top of one another(forming something like a pyramid), between that hay pyramid and the barn, you have to dig, you'll know it's the place if there's a small lock on the barn wall. Dig there. The Frying Pan doesn't have any description, has 100 damage, and heavy. The power of the Frying Pan depends on how many Treasure Clues you have.
Hidden MessageWhen choosing your Hero's name, use "Krunk" to get a hidden message.
More gold (Trophy profits)Buy the house in Oakvale for 5000g. Mount the most expensive trophies you have (hotkey if desired). Smash the door and sell the house. The doorway will be open, allowing you to recollect your trophies, purchase the house, and repeat the process, earning a profit depending on the value of the trophies you mount.
Easy restIf you don't feel like paying for an inn, or are in a town without one, go into someone's house and choose to sleep. Before the screen blacks out run outside the house and you will not be fined for tresspassing.
Pause During Card PairsIn card pairs you are unable to pause normally. If you remove your controller, the game will pause, but the cards on the screen can still be seen. This will allow you to write down card pairs if you cannot remember or if you want to beat it in a record time.
Hero Save ExploitIn the middle of a quest, if you use a hero save and reload the save, you will start at the beginning of the quest as if you had never begun, and you will retain all items that you obtained during the last run of the quest. This is especially useful in the Arena, where vast amounts of money can be made if used right. This exploit can also be used to get infinite silver keys, potions, etc if used during missions.
Huge CharactersUse Berserk then save your game. When you load the game your character will be huge until you cast Berserk again.
Easy RenownBuy a spade. In the Guild, choose a new Quest and choose to Boast about it. You will be transported to the Boast Podium in Lookout Point. A group of people should flock to you and cheer. Step off the podium and find a diggable patch of ground. Now dig. Every time you dig, the characters in the area will be reloaded; as this is the only place in the game where human NPCs are randomly generated, the generation process will be repeated and more people will spawn. Continue doing this until you have a huge crowd of people, then pull out a Trophy and show it off to the amassed onlookers for huge amounts of Renown points.Additionally, killing masses of them at a time with magic will net you a large Combat Multiplier and a nice chunk of experience.Note: Your XBox may lag if there are too many NPCs on-screen at once; therefore, 100 is a good recommended upper limit of NPCs.
Use Temple of Avo for FreeRequirements:
-A good amount of money1. Go to the Temple of Avo and save.
2. Go up to the pedastal and donate ALL of your money.
3. After you donate your money, press A rapidly and activate the pedsatal again. It should still say you have all of your money. Donate zero coins.
4. You will gain the good points, but lose no money. Repeat as many times as it takes to get Sentinus, the title Paladin, or an age decrease.Note:
-If you don't press A rapidly enough, you will see an icon in the bottom left corner of the screen showing your money leaving. You need to press A before this appears. Load your save and try again if this happens.
-You will gain more good points if you have an evil alignment.
Keep the Exclamation point over your head!Requires-
Belch or Middle Finger ExpressionWhat you need to do is assign the belch or middle finger to the D-pad, then use it and hold the button down, now charge up a fireball and release both buttons at the same time. If done right you'll keep the exclamation point over your head until the next time you use an expression.
Time FreezeTo freeze time completely, find a gateway between two areas, such as Oakvale to Barrow fields, for example. Cast Berserk and then Assassin Rush through the gateway. As soon as you pass through and the loading screen appears, hold 'down' on the thumbstick, so that as soon as the area loads you run back through to where you just were. Keep the thumbstick held down. When you load again, time should be frozen. This can be usefull for stealing, as Shop owners are also frozen. While this glitch is active, you can teleport anywhere while keeping time frozen. To unfreeze time, simply dig somewhere.
Knothole Glade safe house.If you are causing a commotion in Knothole Glade just climb the stairs in the home on the southwest end of the map and stand on the balcony. (near where you first obtain the silver augmentation) From here you can take passing shots at any villagers with your bow and the best thing is that your wanted level will decrease, because the gaurds won't follow you up there unless you go down an bug them again from the ground. This is an excellent way to free up some of the southwestern houses in Knothole Glade.
Demon Door in Knothole GladeIf you shoot a Charged up Fireball instead of a arrow the door will still open (so if you're a mage then you can open it with crapy skill.).
Walk Through WallsMake sure you have got a spade with you and then make sure you got it in a hot key. Dig when your back is against the wall and you will somewhat be stuck in the wall. If not, your back is not close enough. Do it once more with your back still against the side you want to go through and you should be able to get through. With this you can enter many places that you are not up to, like get to Twin Blades tent before doing Wasp Queen.
