The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a story-driven open world RPG set in a visually stunning fantasy universe full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher, you play as professional monster hunter Geralt of Rivia tasked with finding a child of prophecy in a vast open world rich with merchant cities, pirate islands, dangerous mountain passes, and forgotten caverns to explore.
Welcome to my guide on how to make money in The Witcher 3. This is my first guide, so there can be some mistakes. I apologize for that and if you have any questions or suggestions, leave a comment. I will try to answer them as quickly as possible.
I wanted to create this guide because money is a really important thing in Witcher 3 and it’s really hard to make them if you don’t know a way. In my playthrough I was able to find couple of methods and I will describe them step by step.
-Go to White Orchard.
-Close to the Woesong Bridge, there are couple of locations where you can find Pigs. (Marked with a red circle on the map)
-Meditate for 1 hour. (You don’t need to go someplace else to meditate.)
-Then the pigs will respawn.
-Cast an Igni sign again.
-Do this until the respawning stops.
-Then go to the other location.
-Do the same thing and when the respawning stops again go back to the first location and repeat.
-When you are done, loot all the Pig hides and Pork.
-Fast travel to Hierarch Square in Novigrad.
-Then go to “Olivier” the innkeeper. (Location is marked with a red circle on the map).
-He will give you 9 Crowns per hide!
-You can also sell Pork you collected if you want but I would rather keep them to regenerate my vitality when it’s low. (He will give you 4 Crowns per Pork).
-When you unlock Skellige, travel to the locations marked as “?” in the sea.
-Kill the monsters you find there.
-Loot all the chests.
-Sell the things you find to an Armorer or a Blacksmith. If they ran out of money, meditate for few days and they will restock.
Method 1 is faster & easier than the Method 2 but you will probably do both of them. You can easily find the money needed to craft the Gear Sets if you follow these two methods. Killing Pigs and monsters will boost your XP level but not in a great margin.
-For this Method, you need to find Hanse Bases in Toussaint.
-There are 3 Hanse Bases (marked with red circles on the map) and when you find the first one, the game will inform you that.
-When you attack a Hanse base, one bandit will run away to light a torch to call the reinforcements. Don’t kill him and let him do his work.
-Then kill all the bandits you find in the base but DO NOT KILL THE BANDIT LEADER! This is very important. Therefore make sure to make a manual save before you enter a Hanse Base. If you kill the Bandit leader by mistake, you can load the save you made.
-Then loot all of them and fast travel to the nearest location and then fast travel back to the Hanse base (you can meditate for few days if you want but fast traveling is easier and faster).
-This will trigger the bandits to respawn. (If you kill the Bandit leader, bandits won’t respawn.)
-Then you can do the same thing until your inventory becomes full.
-When you had enough loot, go to the Grandmaster Smith and sell the loot. Keep in mind that though, the loot you sell will make his inventory full, so it will take some time to load the Shop menu.
-Then repeat the procedure until you get enough Crowns.
In this method you can make up to 20k Crowns and boost your XP level up to 4000xp in less than 20 minutes! I hope this method will help you to find the money you needed.
Cheers and have fun!
