Witcher 3 Currency – How to Make Money in the Wild Hunt
Money makes the world go round – and the same goes for The Witcher 3. From upgrading equipment to even just purchasing some decent food, it all costs.
So, how can you earn some extra cash in this gritty and dingy fantasy universe? Here are a few ways to do so.
In a roleplaying game, money makes the world go round – and in The Witcher 3’s case, it is also what keeps you going from one fight to the next. As such, keeping a steady stream of crowns flowing is essential.
The main currency in The Witcher 3 is Crowns, replacing the Oren and Florens of previous games. While Geralt may still occasionally pick up some of those, he should focus on getting Crowns as much as possible.
This means looting enemy corpses, searching every container in sight and checking the “other” category of his inventory for treasure. It also means selling anything he doesn’t need, including crafting ingredients and secondary weapon sets (if he has them).
Another easy way to get Crowns is by playing Gwent. This popular mini-game is available in many inns around the Northern Realms, and players can earn a fair amount of money from it by winning matches or wagering on them. You can also earn a nice chunk of coin by participating in the High Stakes tournament at the Passiflora brothel in Novigrad.
Finally, it is worth noting that you can earn a good amount of Crowns by doing some of the quests in the main story and expansions. For example, some of the rewards for the quests in Vizima and Toussaint are Crowns, while others (such as the reward from Bram when you save him) are Orens.
If you’re a fan of the Witcher 3’s grim and gritty world, you know that money is hard to come by. Whether it’s for equipment repairs, fun evenings or a humble portion of grilled chicken – it all costs money. In the beginning of the game, most of your coin is earned by completing quests and treasure stashes. However, there are a few other ways to make money in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. For example, the abandoned houses found throughout the world are a quick way to fill your inventory with valuables and crafting materials. Those items can then be sold for a nice profit.
You also earn coin by completing secondary quests and contracts. They usually involve extorting, but the rewards can be huge (abandoned house with tons of loot). Contracts and secondary quests are a great way to accumulate money, as they’re fast, easy and lucrative.
Another way to quickly make money in the Witcher 3: Wildhunt is by exchanging other coins for crowns at the Vimme Vivaldi Bank in Novigrad. You can give him the Temerian orens and Florens that you have in your inventory, and he will turn them into Crowns for you.
It’s worth noting that although the game takes place in a post-apocalyptic Temeria, where Orens are used, once Nilfgaard conquered that kingdom the currency was changed to the Nilfgaardian florin. So it makes sense that the florin is now worth more than the Oren.
If you want to spend your time doing other things than grinding for money in the Witcher 3, there are some beneficial mods you can use. For example, Crowns Multiplier can boost your quest reward tenfold and Real Economy will allow you to sell previously unsaleable items.
