When there is water in front of you or blocking your path, only you can
walk through it.
If your goblin minions go out of the shallow end of the water they will
drown, and can
only be saved by blue goblins. Instead of guiding your goblin minions
across a complex
path to keep out of the water (which they usually fall in anyway and
drown), simply walk
through the water. Your minions are smart enough not to follow you and will
seek the easiest path to get back to you. Be careful; sometimes your
minions cannot get
through because a bridge needs to be activated (for example, Blue Goblin
Easy soul gathering:
In order to do this you must have fought Dazzler Beetles (found in the blue

After you have fought at least one of each, they will be available at your

take out the
horde of beetles is to pull only a few from the swarm and take your time
individually. Green minions work well due to the fact that they are experts

Easy soul gathering 2:
Use the following trick for fast green minion soul gathering. When you find
minion hive you will see five green minions jump into the spawning pit for
you to take
control of. Do not do that. Instead, go to the tower using the gate beside
spawn pits to your right, then return to the green minion hive. Five more
will jump into the spawn pit and you will still have the ones from before.
You can do
this as many times as desired, but after you take the hive it will no
Easy max imbued gear:
Forge a piece of gear without imbuing anything into it. Then, upgrade it
as many minions into it as desired. As soon as the animation starts, but
any minions jump into the smelter, pause the game, save, and exit. When you
return, the minions will have been imbued, but will not have been taken
Poor Overlord’s Power-up:
If you died recently and your minions are weakened, go to either Halfling
or the village of Spree, and break all the objects for new weapons and armor.
This is no substitute for actually upgrading your minions, but it works at
start of the game!
Always have blue minions on guard duty. While on a guard post, they will
actively run into the combat, grab a fallen peer, and drag their half
conscious form over to you so they can revive their fallen comrade.
However, while not assigned, they will wait for you to micromanage them
over to the body by sweeping, making them almost useless in a large
When lifeforce is harder to come by with the advance smelters, visit the
dungeon and use the staged fights to earn lifeforce. A mix of minions will

spells to use.

hacking away at him. He will not move or try to attack you. You can defeat
in each phase of his battle this way and it requires no minions to do
Master and Minion Multitude Achievements:
The best way to unlock the Minion Multitude Achievement is to visit the

For the weapon, don’t balance out your minion sacrifices so that you get a
of everything and instead focus on increasing the damage (brown minions)
and just a
little of the green minions to do massive damage with the power blow.
For the armor, don’t balance out your minion sacrifices so that you get a
of everything and instead focus on increasing the defence (brown minions)
and just a
little of the green minions to regenerate life slowly (about 5 to 10%).
Don’t take any minions with you and when you go into the dungeon and
