Cheats, Tips and Strategy
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include exploring each area and crafting. As well as these hints and tips we also have a mini-guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:
Listen to your Companions
All your companions have information that will be useful during quests so whenever there is a mission that involves the faction of one of your companions make sure you take them with you as their presence will help a lot. Check out our Companion Guide to find out everything you need to know about the five possible companions who fight alongside you.
Explore Each Area
It is essential that you scout each new area you visit as exploration will yield loot, experience, quests, and new characters to interact with, all of which will help you to progress in the game. Check out our Side Quest Guide to find out where all the side quests in the game can be found.
GreedFall features a unique Tactical Pause Option, which allows you to pause the game mid fight and select form your Actions, Spells, Techniques and Potions to choose key items and skills to claim victory. Make sure when you use this option you also pan around the battle to get a better look at what you are up against, your enemy's level/rank and their current health status.
There are lots of potions, traps, bombs and ointments you can craft in GreedFall as well as various upgrades you can apply to your weapons and armour. Make sure while you are exploring you loot everything you can so you have the necessary resources to craft them. Crafting will not only enable you to make things and upgrade your gear it will also improve your damage and defence.
Increase Science Level
You may want to consider increasing your science level in the Talents section as doing so can help you gain knowledge on how to create explosives which can then be used to breach walls.
Use Travel Pause
Each time that you fast travel from one area to another on the map you will take a 'travel pause' while the destination area loads. During this time all your companions will be gathered at the camp along with a crafing table and a merchant who will restock every time you visit and sells potions, ammo, gear and capes. Instead of skipping straight out of the 'travel pause' when you fast travel get into the habit of talking to your companions and loading up on essentials.
Your Actions Have Consequences
Be aware that every choice you make whether a lie or truth could potentially have ramifications down the line. Also keep in mind who you are cosying up to and who you are upsetting as you never know when you may need something from a faction you previously upset.
