As of 2.7 and newer, this exploit has been patched and can no longer be abused in releases above version 2.5.1.

The Exploit

  1. In Amethyst Mountain, go into a wolf territory.
  2. Find a stranger wolf (NOT a Dispersal, a stranger) and fight it.
  3. When the wolf gives in, tell it to leave.
  4. When the wolf replies, "I can take a hint" or, "I'll be going now" or another one of those catch phrases, immediately press the ESC button on your keyboard and click "Pack Stats"
  5. Your Experience Points should start rapidly going up.  (WARNING: If your computer is more than 3 years old, do NOT let your points exceed a million. This may crash the game.)

Tip: If this cheat does not work right away, quickly return to the game, and hit ESC again before the stranger wolf runs off.

Note: This exploit works both before and after finding and establishing a bond with a mate.
