In this third chapter of the Fable franchise you play as the son of the Hero from Fable 2. The game play mechanics will be familiar to gamers who have played the previous games in the series. However, for gamers new to the Fable universe getting started can be challenging as it is quite different from traditional role playing games. Fable 3 is heavy on the narrative and adventure role playing aspects, but does not have the level of upgrades and skills one generally would expect. To help get through Fable 3 without dying repeatedly or facing a lot of frustration here are some tips and hints.
Fable 3 Tips – Money
You are going to need a lot of money in Fable 3 if you plan to complete 100 percent of the game. If you want to play through as a completely good character you are going to need well over 15 million dollars. At the start of Fable 3 spend some time performing jobs to earn money. As soon as you have the gold saved up start buying real estate. This allows you to start earning rent from the properties you own. For the first half of the game put as much money you can into buying stores and houses. This will give you plenty of gold in the second half of Fable 3 from the rental income to buy the rest of the properties and any weapons or outfits you want.
Fable 3 Tips – Combat
Enemies in Fable 3 tend to attack in groups of 5 or more. Since you are mostly fighting by yourself try to pick off as many enemies as you can from a distance with a rifle. Once the enemies start surrounding you use a magic spell, like fire, to damage all of the enemies near you at the same time. Then finish them off with melee attacks. After you unlock the ability to combine magic attacks spend some time testing out which combos work best for you. My preference was fire plus force push since it keeps enemies back while doing continual fire damage.
Fable 3 Tips – Exploration
While Fable 3 does have an option to fast travel ignoring it is a good way to find treasure chests and dig spots. There are also areas that do not show up on the world map that have some of the best side missions. Take time to explore each city and area to find all of the quests available. You will need all of the experience points from the side quests in order to completely upgrade your character. As you have the golden trail showing you where to go for your next quest all the time you can feel free to explore and never have to worry about getting lost.
