About the Call Beads:
VGMaps: Eastern Swamp in Prehistoria
For the swamp, the ingredients you need are in the containers at the top left and then the Call Beads. Best not to pick anything up in-between, just to be safe.

any hint on lvling up fast besides energize and rimsala beating?

Posted: 14 Sep, 2017 18:11
The enemies respawn when you leave the screen. Find something beatable that drops some decent EXP and rinse repeat. Also weapons level up based on enemies defeated so I always leveled weapons at the part of the game you start at and just one hit things until they max out.

I highly recommend the spears and they become throwable and at level 2 they are excellent for bosses.

Don, i appreciate you trying to help, but i know the game by heart, including speedruns, bugs, and whatnot. Just was wondering if there is a faster strat for gaining max lvl, since everything else was already done when i asked. (technically i have to kill the final boss and lvl up 2 spells for all cheevos after grinding to max lvl)

I got all the achievements, save for Bees?. It was the only one that wouldn't trigger. I'm pretty sure I collected all the call beads and I know I didn't use any of them. Any ideas on what may have gone wrong? Any help would be appreciated

I got it

Even farming by today's standards makes max level worse than the southpark WoW episode when it comes to grinding. Level 40 is overkill, and takes longer to grind exp that far than playing the entire game again. Not your fault...but it shows a disproportion for sure in regards to the level/game content ratio. For the true masochist, I guess "more power to ya". But respectfully, it'd be more creative to have more "no call beads used" type achievements, or no dog biscuits used, etc. level 50 or 60 would be a realistic accomplishment ; anything after that would turn the game sour for me, imho.
