Level Cap Glitch

During the Tainted Blood mission collect ALL 3 Vials of Darkspawn Blood while avoiding collecting the Grey Warden Treaties. When you have ALL the vials talk to Duncan and select the 'We have the blood, but not the
scrolls' conversation selection. The conversation will end and you will recieve experience. This trick can be performed as many times as you want and will give you experience each time giving you enough to reach the 25 level cap.

Gold Exploit

In the city Lothering, the Quest 'Traps are a girl's best friend' can be continuously repeated so you can earn as much Gold and XP as desired. Perform this glitch before connecting to Xbox live as a patch has fixed this problem and if are caught stealing in Lothering the Quest giver will refuse to talk to you.

Easy Experience

If you want to get Experience points early in the game go to the city of Denerim as soon as you leave Lothering and search for a building named 'Wonders of Thedas'. Go inside and purchase the Archivist's Belt and when you equip it you will get an Experience point boost for everything in your Codex. Books for example will increase from 50 Experience points to 75 Experience points.

Unlimited Enhancement Crystals for Shale

In Redcliff persuade the innkeeper to join the fight so that the barmaid is left in charge. When you ask the barmaid for supplies she will give you anything in the shop for free. Leave the inn and re-enter it to get more supplies. Each time you return she will have a random assortment of the current and lower tier below crystals for Shale. These will start to sell for 1 Gold Piece after you reach the 'Cear' tier.

Raise levels quickly early on

When you get done with your Origin story and are recuited into the Grey Wardens you'll travel to Ostagar with Duncun. From here you talk to Duncan again and he will send you out into the Kicari Wilds to find three vials of Darkspawn Blood and to grab the archives from an old and abandoned Grey Warden keep within the Wilds.
Go through the Wilds and find the three vials of Darkspawn blood and don't go any further! Turn around and go back into Ostagar and seek Duncan out again and talk to him. He'll talk to you about returning and happy that you have the blood but then the conversation turns to the archives and he'll send you back out to get them rather than standing around. Once you get out of the conversation, you'll still gain the experience for completing the quest. Keep talk..

Both "Nature of the Beast" achievements

At the beginning of the game begin to raise your "cunning" stat and get it as high as nyou can before you do this quest. You will go down into the werewolves lair and after you battle the few down there you will be able to open a door. SAVE THE GAME BEFORE YOU GO THROUGH THE DOOR! So that way after you side with the Elves you can redo it and get the achievement for siding with the werewolves (the only way you can do this is by persuading them to kill the elves *hint thats why you raise your cunning so it will not fail*)
