Become a master of Death
Choose Death as your faith, you already start out with Balkoth's Scythe. It's
ability will keep replenishing your life whenever you kill and enemy. Now you
need to search through the local caves and buildings for artifacts. When you
get the Ashes of Infestation, equip it on Balkoth. Now go to an empty cave and
cast Spawn (a spell you're able to cast for free from the Ashes) on the cave.
An enemy has now occupied it. It'll tell you that the same enemy occupying it
now is the one that was previously. It's not, but don't worry about it. You
can then go in and kill the enemy. It's best to go in and hit autobattle. The
computer is probably better at fighting with Balkoth than anyone else. After
battle, you get the rewards, (exp., gold, ale, etc.) and you can cast Spawn on
the cave again. For some reason, after every battle, you have 9 movement
points left, so you can do this forever, but you can only go to level 12 with
any Lord. But hey, bring in other soldiers with Balkoth, and max them out.
Good luck. Defeat Balkoth Easily
Use the map editor to make a map. Erase the Life lord and place a new one
beside Balkoth. Save the map and load the custom board. Use the Infinite
Defense code to make yourself immortal. Then attack Balkoth and kill him the
first turn. Game over, you can now play as him under any setting. Infinite
Choose your following as a Life Warrior, you'll get the Peacemaker as your
artifact. If you take the staff out of your hand and put it back in, your
defense steadily increases, permanently. Works only on Life Warriors and
Mages, not Thieves. It's a game glitch.
