Get Those Pesky Gnomes Off You
Have you found that often (especially during the last boss battle) the Gnomes appear and attach themselves onto your Overlord and do a lot of damage with their blast?

Well what you wont know is that you can actually get them off of you. To do this you need to do a spinning attack, which can be done by pressing the Attack and Magic button together. This combo will knock them off, and if you use it again quickly, kill them.
Quick Gold
If you are doing a domination run, then you should refrain from destroying Nordberg till after you have gained as much money as you need (around 40,000 - 50,000 should suffice for quickly upgrading your Minions and for the Weapons/Armours).

To make quick money you will need to defeat the Spider Boss and get the Green Minion Mounts, as well as escape the temple. Once you've done this, you can now return to the temple (called Everlight Temple from the teleport list). In this area you'll notice an 'Overlord Switch' which can be activated by the overlord standing on it. Do so, and it'll open a door to a 'secret' area. Now go towards this area opening the few chests along the way, and within the area it self, you'll find a whole lot more chests. After you've gotten all the gold from this area (approximately 1000 Gold), teleport to Nordberg Gate 2. Right outside this gate will be more chests (there wont be many if you've killed many villagers, and more if you've dominated them). Get these chests and you'll get around 1000 more gold.

Now just keep going between these two areas and you can make alot of money, fairly quickly.
