If you use the date trick to level and change it back a few years the abilities on the left site are activated and go on endless. Makes leveling even further way easier. Cooldown will say something like "10519" and never stopped until around level 330 (the second time I did this). It started working again after going online and restarting the game.

Make sure to restart the console after going Offline or else you won't be able to change the date. The game wouldn't load past 25% after around 2035. That's when I went back to 2017 and went through it all again several times. The automatic endless abilities never stopped. Only after ascending.

Did not work for me, Set the date back three years, but still have all the cooldowns as normal.

JeroenRos: You can only do it in offline mode, go offline and go to the date/time settings and here you can change the time/date.

edit: i can't seem to change the date, it keeps changing back to 14th march 2017.

Can you shed a light on how to do it? Thanks

I went up to 2035 before reverting back to 2017. Been going back and forth a few times now (ascended earlier too) and it still works.

1. Go offline
2. Restart console (!)
3. You stay offline and can change the date.

I go ahead 1 year at the start, 3 years at around lvl 50 and 5 years everytime I get stuck after that.

Just make sure to go online before ascending if you want to get the achievements. And it's best to do this after 10k kills because that stat can glitch and go to minus several million.

Make sure you're not closing the game to go change the time when it says autosaving at the top. That might be why you lost your save.

Great find. I would warn others not to use any of the buttons on the left when changing the time. I accidentally clicked the top left box while going for a bird and now I can't use it unless the xbox time is in 2030.


Edit: After ascending I gained use of the buttons again.

Oh and another tip. I keep switching back and forth between 2010 and 2035 and when i am in 2035, i have a SHITLOAD of gold that is farmed in those '25 years'. Really helps leveling up. Went from almost zero gold to almost be able to buy dread knight, and im on game level 200, lol.

Changing the date offline works like a charm, thanks for sharing this! However, my kill count is messed up, and everytime i change the date more buttons seem to have lost their function :p

Considering that this glitches out the kill 10,000 monsters achievement, isn't it possible that this would glitch the kill 10,000 treasure chest achievement as well?

Does not it any way glitch out the treasure chest counter. At least it hasn't yet and I've been using it for almost a week.

Edit: I believe it doesn't wonk out the treasure chests counter because you don't actually fight any treasure chests while offline, they're only encountered while the game is running.

Ahh, well hopefully that's the case. I guess I'll try out this method then lol. Thanks for the response!

Another tip: Get the ancient that gives 0.05% extra dps per click combo. If you leave the game running with the endless abilities it will rack up a crazy combo. I had about 170k x combo after five hours. Good for speeding through the levels.

I also think it is best to upgrade some of the lower heroes, some of them are level 2000 and have a very good dps. (x4 damage every 25 levels and x10 for every 1000). Do this on higher guilded heroes to maximize damage output.

Im stuck at Terra, takes ages to unlock her.

Ascend if you get stuck for too long. The souls will help.
