Quest 64 Cheats for Nintendo 64
If you enter an Inn or 'Save Game' point and sleep you can then press B at the 'Save Game' screen to exit without saving the game.
Defense levels up by the number of times you get hit, not by damage so the best way to train defense is to fight a monster who can hit a lot of times in 1 attack. I'm not sure if this is a glitch, but, you actually level up at the same rate as the level you started with when the battle began. So if you started at 50 defense and last a really long time, you will lvl up at the same rate, so if it takes 30 hits to level up, then after another 30 hits you will level up again. This also works for Hp and Mp as well. For MP, you get experience for every successful hit, so something like wind cutter lvl 3 works good.
While being attacked by ware hares or other wind cutter monsters, when they attack, this is how you dodge them.
What you do is run in the same direction as the attack and stay close to it (not too close).
It usually misses you, but it doesn't always work. It's not that hard to master, though!
