In Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Geralt Of Rivia (the protagonist) could pick up a wide range of items as he slays monsters, completes quests, etc. Still, while many of the items would help Geralt in his adventure, others do nothing but take up space in the inventory. To ensure that they have space for high-quality stuff, Witcher players must clean their inventory every now and then by selling off items. Naturally, Witcher 3: best place to sell is a hotly discussed topic among the Witcher community.
A Guide On Selling Items In Witcher 3
Food, Alcohol, and Junk
You will likely earn more gold if you sell food, alcohol, and junk food to innkeepers instead of merchants. If you have items in the category that you don’t need and want to make quick gold, drop by the inns down below for good bargains. (simonsezit)
- Inn at the Crossroads in Velen. The inn offers the highest rates for foods and drinks in Velen and some of the best rates in the game. However, keep in mind that the Innkeeper is usually absent when you arrive. If you want to trade with the guy, you may have to meditate for one hour to wait for him to return to the inn.
- Kingfisher Inn in Novigrad City
- Passiflora Brothel
Note: There is a merchant in Novigrad (main square) that buys your junks like pelts and chandeliers at excellent rates. However, he has limited gold most of the time, so you cannot sell a lot to him.
