Weapon And Armor Advice

If using the Mace upgrade, speed and damage (knockback is useless, if they fall back they have time to recover and if fighting multiple enemies your minions could chase after the enemy and leave you defenseless. Fire damage has no point if you have a fair amount of Reds) If using the sword upgrade damage and a little speed to not leave yourself open. When upgrading armor focus on being well rounded, but not as much on the mana if you have mana regeneration. Try not to use the Axe.

Strong Minion Force

Are you tired of the tedious task of filling your helmet with minions, if so then don't worry, I've got the answer. Lets start with 15 max minions try to use 10 brown and and 5 blue.

20 max: use 10 brown, 5 red and 5 green or 5 of each.

25 max: use 10 brown, 5 red, 5 green and 5 blue after that just try to use 10 of each or as high as you can get to that.

Shutting Up The Jester Minion

Start beating up the jester minion with your sword, mace, or axe. Soon he will run away from you and stop making noise and following you around. It only lasts until the next time your in the main hall.

No Loss Of Minions When Upgrading

When Upgrading put you minions in and press forge just before the first minion jumps pause and quit saying yes to auto-save. Wait for the writing saying auto-saved to disappear then load your file. It should be upgraded with out loss of minions.(You can only do 100 minions at a time otherwise some will die, and if after you quit you hear the noise that sounds like the plop of a minion falling in the smelter of you see one fall in you will lose that minion because the screen fades away after you quit it still goes on for about a second so be careful).

Defeating The Wizard

First he sends the minions at you defeat them and you'll notice he puts a shield up if the shield is yellow send your brown minions at him they will go through it and attack him send any other minions at him they will die it depends on the color of the shield that tells you what minion to send. When the shield is green send green minions, red then send red minions, blue can go through any shield but there attack is next to nothing when you get enough damage into him he will send hundreds of minions at you. Defeat them then he'll turn into a tornado move to the minion teleport where you will be out of reach of him then he will do the shield thing again just send the color minion at him that matches the shield color then he'll go tornado again keep doing this sequence until he gets hurt badly and all you have to to is hit him once then the game is completed.

Minion Locations

Red Minions- Mellow Hills, halfling homes. In order to get the Red Minions, which shoot fireballs at your enemies, you have to kill the incredibly fat halfling hero, Melvin. The place where you get them isn't much of a dungeon, and it is the easiest of the three to complete.

Green Minions (assassins)- Evernight Forest. The Green minions' dungeon is annoying because of all of the poison that fills the whole place. When following the green's to their hive, be sure to watch for poison coming out of the walls, and for the poison plants.

Blue Minions (healers)- Heaven's Peak Swamp. In order to get the blue minions you have to have the green minions because the blue minion dungeon is guarded by poison plants. And, in order to get to Heaven's Peak you have to have the red minions. The blue minion dungeon is probably the most annoying of all of the dungeons. The majority of the time spent in the dungeon is traveling back and forth trying to get different minion types to accomplish different tasks. And of course, this is where the Boombo birds come in to the game. they are the most annoying enemy. Just remember when in the blue dungeon, try to bring as many of the other color minions as possible, because you will need the protection.

Max Attributes


Forge a piece of gear without imbuing anything into it. Then, upgrade it and put as many minions into it as desired. As soon as the animation starts, but before any minions jump into the smelter, press Start to pause the game and exit. Wait for the screen to switch to where the minions are running out of the door, but do it quick. When you return, the minions will have been imbued, but will not have been taken from your supply. Use this trick to easily achieve the Ultimate gear achievements.

Infinite Green Minions

Viridian Caverns

So I found a way to get infinite green minions in the game without them disappearing. Before you lift the green minions hive up and take it to the portal make sure you see those 5 minions jump into their "summoning stones." When you see this don't bother with the hive and teleport to the tower using the waypoint gate right next to their summoning stones. Come back and you will see that same 5 minions jumping into the summoning stones and they will always add 5 more green minions to your army. This is a great way for people to get green minions and build up their stealth army without doing any work.

Fable Quotes

Sometimes when running through villages the villagers will say things from Fable. Like some women will say something like "Now there's a real hero." in the same exact way women would say in Fable.
