When playing the game for the first time, you may be prompted to update it with an online download. Do not accept this download, and continue to play the game. This trick must be done with an unpatched game. When you reach Oakfield and have at least 5,000 gold, buy the very first house you see once you enter the zone. It should have a wood chopping job nearby. Once you buy and own this house, sleep in the bed. You should now have a speed bonus. Press Start, and go into the "Skills" menu. Go to "Skill", and notice "Speed" has one star. Press Y, A(2) to remove experience from Speed into General experience, but the star will still remain. Keep doing this until you have enough for Rank 2, then Rank 3, and finally Rank 4. Then, do this until you have enough General experience to buy out all skills, strength, and will skills. You will now be maxed out on everything.
Go to the Temple of Light, and perform the "Easy gold" trick that requires the system date and time being set ahead. Get a few million gold. Then, donate all your gold. Afterwards, you will notice some green General Experience around the donation pedestal. Use RT to gather it up. You should get a few thousand experience points, depending on if you donated a few thousand gold or a few million.
After your character has leveled up a few times, insert a second controller, and begin a Co-op mode game without using a second profile. Go to your henchman's abilities on controller two. Remove all of the abilities to return the experience to the pool. Quit the Co-op mode game. The extra experience from the pool will be transferred to your character. Repeat this as many times as desired.
Purchase an Experience Potion from a vendor at either Browerstone or Westcliff, then find some enemies to battle. Normally when you dispatch the enemies and absorb their Orbs, you will get a message at the top stating "Excellent Fight! 150% XP", or something similar. After you defeat the enemies, and before you absorb the Orbs, use the Experience Potion. The experience point bonus percentage will also apply to the potion, meaning you could earn 62,500 XP and get up to three times that amount. You can also buy lots of potions at the Crucible and use them in several of the fights (for example, the first bandit fight).
Buy some real estate, such as a food vendor stall or house. Once the real estate is purchased, adjust the rent/profits price to 100% of their default by clicking on the property paper on the side of the property. Save the game once the price has been raised. If you are connected to Xbox Live, disconnect as that will automatically update the clock and date. Exit to the Xbox 360 Dashboard, and access the clock. Adjust the date and time. For best results, adjust the clock as far ahead in time as possible. For example, if the saved game date is June 1, 2008 at 12:00 a.m., adjust the clock to December 31, 2028 at 11:59 p.m. Then, reload the game, and select "Continue". Once the game loads, wait a few seconds. You will see a large lump sum suddenly appear over your character's head. This is the money that you have accumulated in your "absence" from playing the game. Save the game. If you have Xbox Live, the easiest way to repeat this is to sign onto the service. Once the clock automatically resets to the correct time, save the game, quit, and repeat the trick. This works because the game gives you gold every five minutes in real time whether or not you are playing the game or have it turned off.
Once you have acquired enough gold in Bowerstone Market from the Blacksmith job, go to the Bowerstone Slums, and buy the most expensive weapons from the weapon trader. Next, go to Fairfax Gardens, and sell them to one of the wandering merchants (must be a weapons trader). You will gain over 30% in profit. Repeat this process as many times as desired.
When playing the game for the first time, you may be prompted to update it with an online download. Do not accept this download, and continue to play the game. This trick must be done with an unpatched game. When you reach Bowerstone Market, do not walk to the clock tower. Instead, do the Blacksmith job until you have a decent amount of gold (15,000 to 20,000 gold recommended). Quit the job, and buy only the cheap houses in Bowerstone Market or Bowerstone Slums. Rent out those houses with 0% added to rent. Once done, save, and quit the game. Go to the Xbox 360 Dashboard when offline. Go to your system settings, and set the date to thirty days or one month later. Start the game again. Select the appropriate saved game file, and continue. After the game resumes, you should receive a large sum of gold from rent. Continue to buy and rent out more houses, and set the system time one month ahead until you have about 4 million gold. You can now buy all properties in Albion and eventually get the "Ruler Of Albion" achievement.
Note: This trick requires the full download of Fable 2 Pub Games. Play that game until you have an extremely high debt (any amount, but you can only do this trick once -- so a very high number is recommended). Then, start Fable 2. This trick must be done with an unpatched game; do not accept any online updates. Go to the Bowerstone town square, and make enough gold to buy the cow and Corset Inn (for example, by blacksmithing). After you buy the inn, go into Fable 2 Pub Games, and merge your Fable 2 character with the character that has the extremely high debt. Save the game, then return to Fable 2. You should gain all the money you owe in debt as gold because you now own the inn that one of the game masters is in.
In Westcliff, when Barnum wants you to invest in his project for 5,000 gold, do so. In approximately ten years Westcliff will not be poverty stricken or slummy; it will be wealthy, and he will give you 15,000 gold.
An easy and fast way to get people in love with you, male and or female, is to buy the "Noble" clothes from the tailors. Put on all the clothing, and almost everyone will be in love with you. The clothes will increase their attraction to you by a large amount. This is useful for the "Till Death Do Us Part" quest because the "lover" should be instantly in love with you. You should not have to worry about making them love you. It does not look the best on your character, but everyone will love you.
Easy The Chopper
An easy way to get The Chopper in the Crucible is have a partner be a henchman, and take on the levels together.
After getting to Brightwood Tower, climb to the top. When you reach the Cullis gate, turn left (by the stairs). You will see a part where the railing has crumbled. Jump from there. You will go down a well into Archon's Knot. Behind you is a Gargoyle. Follow the path into a room. On the right, the wall has crumbled away. Shoot the glowing Orb in the wall. Go through the newly unlocked door. Go up the stairs, and enter a new room with a spiked floor. On the far wall, there are candles and skulls. The candles detail the safe path through the spikes. Hit the Orb, and go up the stairs. Run past the statue for now, and go up the stairs. Step on the glowing floor tile. Go back down, and imitate the statues expression (for example, the roar). Hit the now free Orb, and return to the upstairs room. On this floor, the candles and skulls have fallen. Make your way to the right, and use Slow Time to avoid the spikes. You cannot walk on tiles which the spikes appear; ignore the key for now. Go upstairs, open the chest, then return downstairs. You will find the spikes are now deactivated. Get the key. Go back up and out the door to Brightwood. Once outside, go right. The chest there contains the legendary weapon "The Diachi", which is a katana stronger than a master level with Devastation, Bewitching, and Killerwatt Augments.
The Hammerthyst is very easy to obtain if you have the "Blow A Kiss" expression. Go to Oakfield, and blow a kiss at the Demon Door. The Hammerthyst is a slow speed blunt weapon, with 78.0 damage and the Barkskin augmentation. Barkskin makes you more resistant to damage, but less resistant to scarring. It looks like a large purple crystal mounted to a two handed shaft, with golden motes pulsating around it.

"Dog Tricks! The Growl"
Potion Of Life
The Rammer (legendary crossbow)
Restoring youth and beauty
After successfully completing the game, your scars will disappear and your eyes will return. You may now donate a large sum of gold to the Temple Of Light to gain youth. The larger the sum of gold, the younger you will become (with the exception of childhood). You may now also buy Castle Fairfax in the Fairfax Garden outside of Bowerstone. By doing the Fairfax castle quest after purchasing the castle itself, you will find a bed. Resting in it will make your character healthier and increase his or her attractiveness, ultimately leading to the full restoration of your character's youth and beauty.
Good start for second character
Use the following trick to get a second character a good start in the game:
1. Have a character that is far in the game, able to purchase, and has a large income of approximately 10,000 or more gold every five minutes. Also, have him or her to the point of being able to purchase the ultimate level potions from the potion vendor in Bowerstone (for example, Thunder Strength, etc.).
2. Purchase multiple numbers of the different potions (about five of each recommended), then save the game, and quit. Allow at least six hours of real time to elapse.
3. Resume the game, and load your advanced character. Immediately after he or she has finished loading but before they get all the gold that has been building up while the game was off, press Start on controller two to bring in a playable henchman. Set it up so that it is connected to the file of the character you want to boost.
4. Adjust the output so the henchman gets all the gold and experience, then play as usual. All the money that you have collected since the last time you played should go directly to your henchman (the character you want to build up).
5. Go into your potions. Use all of the potions you have for experience, and all the experience will go to the second character.
6. Next, have the second player quit so the game saves all the experience points and gold to the character to be boosted. If desired, you can also purchase abilities before you have the second player quit.
7. This is the most important step. Have the first player quit without saving the game.
8. When the title screen appears, go back to the advanced character again. He or she will still have all the gold and potions. Repeat steps 3 through 7 as many times as desired.
"Rescuing Charlie" quest
During the quest, wait until Charles asks you to help him open the tomb/coffin. After the Hollowmen start appearing, you can kill Charles, take his hat, and still finish the quest and get the reward. Alternately, you can just kill all the Hollowmen and make it to the exit with Charles and get a different dialog from his gran.
When you return to the Crucible ten years later (after the Tattered Spire), it is best to have some five star skills. Included in these skills should be Slow Time and Chaos. You should also have a five star Fireball attack so that you can kill most enemies around you through most of the rounds and get Perfect Rounds. When you get to the eighth and final round against the Rock Troll, wait for the Spores to appear, then dodge the rocks, and cast five star Slow Time. Run up to the troll, cast five star Chaos, then take out your fastest and most powerful ranged gun. Shoot the Spores until they are all gone before Chaos wears off. Alternately, cast a five star Lightning or Fire attack (non-enemy targeting) and hope that it will destroy all the Spores instantly. Otherwise, repeat the process until the Troll is dead in under one minute fifty seconds.

Their body will continue to smoke as a Shadow Creature.
