Easiest level up
Granted this first step is the most difficult part of the game, however, it is definately worth it.
Get all the champions medallions from the areas that have bonus levels and all the bloodstones. This will ensure that you have some extra skill and stat points. Then, on the plain of nightmares bonus level, enter the area with the five special bosses.
Once you have defeated Innoruk, leave the "twisted nightmare" and, without leaving the level, enter it again. The bosses will be there and so will any items you dropped whilst in there, unfortunately. However, these guys do give you a massive amount of experience. And So they should!
Incidentally, the bonus levels that you complete to get the extra bonus levels in which the Bloodstones are remain completed once you've completed them. Even if you start a new game with that character on a harder level, the bonus bits will be there, already completed; thus meaning that all there is to do is to get the bloodstones from the levels.
I'm not sure if the "Voice of Rallos Zek" blade is any tougher on harder settings however, as I have not gone to get it yet. I have a feeling that it will be, however.
P.S. Life is much more fun on the evil side, because they have Dark eyed Natasla!
