Wartales – A Short Savescum Guide

A Guide About Savescum


You like it or not. Savescum, particularly in this game, is a good way to learn more about it.

Rule of Thumbs

Once something is displayed on the screen. It is “locked” (you won’t be able to change it in the future) but it is not saved.

Find the face you want in Inns

Game is saved everytime you enter in town

  • Click on the Inn.
  • If you don’t like the style of a charater in the Inn just reload the autosave.

This won’t change traits, it will only change faces.

Since community updates #2 traits are going to change depending on the weapon (1H > one trait, 2H weapon > an other traits: but both are coming back after few reloads).

Find anything you want in bandit chest (belt items/back pack item)

  • Save before opening the chest.
  • Lockpicked it, click on it, or use the key.
  • You don’t like what you have? Reload.

Find anything you want in merchants caravan

  • Save before the first encounter with this caravan.
  • Talk to the merchant.
  • You don’t like it? Reload and talk again.

Craft a 3 stars equipment

  • Save before crafting.
  • Craft.
  • Reload if you don’t have 3 stars.

Always get a 2 stars equipment as loot after battle

  • Equipement loot doesn’t change if you reload the last turn of the fight.
  • But the quality of it (0,1 or 2 stars) changes.
  • So reload until the equipment you want has 2 stars.

Get the attributes points you want for your mercs

Before clicking on the yellow arrow save the game

  • Click on it.
  • Don’t like?
  • Reload.
  • You like it? Wait stop save now before clicking on it and proceed like that for every point.

You made a bad move in battle

Game is saved at the end of a character turn.

  • Reload (used as an Undo button).

Note: Only works with Ironmen Mode

Never be attacked during sleep in camp

  • Save before sleep in camp.
  • Reload if your attacked and you don’t want to (this one is really cheating for me).

Infinite amount of outgrowths (never tried but no reason it doesn’t work)

There’s an item allowing you to get back some ressources in alchemy. I’m pretty sure you can have an infinite amount of outgrowths with save scum.

Another cheese mechanic

Pause the game right when the guards talk to you if you can’t flee. They are going to leave without going through your stuffs (Careful with the pause buttom, it can break a quest if used at some specific moment).
