Easy experience

In the room before battling Count Lee, there are four bats flying around. If you kill each one, you may get an object. After a few seconds, the bats reappear. Keep killing them and after awhile you will get easy experience.

Polter Boxes

Every time you defeat a Polter Box, you will get a very good item such as materials, seeds, icons and even coins. However, in some locations, you cannot find a Polter Box. Try to get it by hitting the Polter Box icon using the treasure chest left behind by an enemy that you just killed. Note: Only some treasure chest contain the Polter Box icon. Others will have spikes, stones etc.

Escape The Mana Shrine

Get past the mana Sanctuary easily – after you go past the gold statue and the hot house head (by screen)north, east, south, west, west, north.

Fake Bait

This is difficult to do, but it works if activated correctly. If a Magic detecting monster is coming, switch to your knucks and use a magic move, make it miss the magic detector and hit it from behind. You will have about 5 seconds to run. He will be focused on where the attack came from. Thinking it came from behind, he should walk away for a bit.
