PSA: Don’t sell all valuables in Dragon Age: Inquisition

2 min read

DAI green

Dragon Age: Inquisition is blowing my mind with how awesome it is. It’s taken a bit of Skyrim in all the best ways and blended it beautifully with all the things I love about Bioware. However, the valuables and loot system is a bit messed up, and you might end up weaker than you should be if you’re not careful.

The valuables section of your inventory in Dragon Age: Inquisition holds all manner of strange items. From wooden figurines to jewelry and gems, it all gets lumped into the valuables tab. This can then easily be cleared with the “sell all” button when you get to a merchant. However, this is not a good idea – sorry everyone, it’s best to behave like a hoarder.

Hidden away in your valuables tab are research items. These are gold in the inventory and actually have descriptions, so they’re easy to spot. They can all be handed in to the research officer in Haven, granting you extra XP and damage bonuses against specific enemies. If you hit sell all, you will miss out on these extras.

People are still digging into the game, so not all quests and requisitions have been found. However, certain reddit users are stating that later quests and requisitions require other items that were previous sold from the valuables tab. Just to be safe rather than sorry, I’ve been holding onto far too much stuff, feeling like a serious hoarder. At the very least, it’s recommended to always visit the researcher first to ensure you don’t sell all at the merchant and regret it down the line.

For those wondering, yes, there is a buy-back option from the merchants in Dragon Age: Inquisition, but they don’t have a long memory, so it isn’t viable to sell all the things and use it as a strange pawning version of storage.

I seriously wonder why we need to loot so much junk in RPGs. I know it’s just a fancy way of saying “sell this for money”, but it ends up feeling like the world of Thedas is full of knickknacks just waiting to be sold off.

    I wonder about all the bad reviews on Metacritic,starting to scare me,but i trust Zoe if she says its good.

      it took me a good 12hrs of game play to actually get into the game… i spent along time running around wondering if it was worth it…. but once it clicks, my greatness…. the game takes on a whole life of it’s…

      it’s beautiful, huge and it’s a good thing i took Friday, Today and tomorrow off… else i’d just end up spending my day at work watching the clock…

      ignore all reviews.
      25 hours down, feels like im only halfway through the story.
      its one hell of a grind, but i cant pull myself away from it.
      havent even opened my steam in the past few days, its been all about DA:I

      its consuming.
      combat isnt perfect, characters arent as polished or likeable as Id hoped and the story is good, but not AMAZING.
      the scope of the game though is massive, its all just so… big.
      its like they looked at the vision they had for DA2, and reversed it, while still keeping it familiar.

      good gaem.

      The game is great – ignore silly reviews. It’s a seriously good RPG.

      Only reason someone wouldn’t enjoy it is if they don’t like big, many-hour-investment RPGs. And this game is most definitely not aimed at those peeps… Seriously good game with an epic world to explore (can sometimes be VERY daunting with so many quests on the map – where to start?!). Having a blast so far.

      One thing that I have realised over the years of gaming and movies. Do not let other people’s opinions change what you like and not like.

      Use reviews to see how polished the game is or how broken it is. If you find the game interesting then go for it.

      If I have to compare DA: I on story/combat/characters.

      DA: I is way better than DA2 and DA:O in combat.
      DA: I story for me, after 35hours of gameplay just got super interesting and awesome. So I find it slightly slightly better than DA: O. DA 2 does not even come close.

      DA: I, characters are interesting, I love how you can find out about their past etc. DA: O still had better characters but it does not mean DA: I’s characters are boring now. DA: 2 also had interesting ones. Bioware always managed to create interesting characters that you still remember after you have completed the game.

      all in all. DA: I is a very good AAA RPG game. It is worth every penny ..

      Stop reading crap on metacritic especisly from players…they just gives bad scores for the sake of hating
      probably da 2 lovers

      The game is worldwide praise from the proffesionals


      • PNYX

        November 28, 2014 at 05:37

        “praise from the proffesionals”

        That’s a stupid comment! Those “professionals” usually rate based on many things that aren’t even connected to the game itself. Many of those things have to do with companies, perks, product placement, earnings, etc, etc. Users may not be the best reviewers but they’re a lot more credible that the “professionals” you mentioned. Even if some comment to hate.


        • DanCa

          November 28, 2014 at 20:34

          The game is getting bad ratings because it’s not a good tactical RPG / Bad console port / Buggywith performance issues. The core game is alrite. The “official” “pro” reviews never truly address those issues as they want to keep their exclusives / behind the scenes access so they can’t really delve into the negatives.


          • RighteousNixon

            April 8, 2015 at 22:01

            Buggy performance, lol. Besides a few ores and plants one can’t pick up, I have yet to see a single bug that actually hurts or effects the quality of the game and I am over 100 hours in. the Story is amazing, the characters interesting, and its one of the best looking games currently available on PS4 and Xbox One. While the combat may not be really deep, its still entertaining and way better than Skyrim. All in all, the issues you brought up subtract a point or two at most. So its still easily an 8 or a 9. the only bad reviews this game is getting are from haters.

        • RighteousNixon

          April 8, 2015 at 21:56

          You have to be kidding me, lol. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of legitimate issues with professional reviews but to suggest user reviews are more credible….that absolutely hilarious. First off, normal gamers have no system at all for rating games. Zip, nodda, none. Professional reviews deduct points for various flaws. Regualr gamers just pull a number out of this a*s. In all honesty, you might as well just pull numbers out of a hat, with the only numbers being 9 and 10 for the people that like it and 0’s and 1’s for the people that don’t.

          Just go to MetaCritic or Amazon, or any other user review site, and look at the user scores. 90% of them are 9’s and 10’s and 0’s and 1’s. that is the grading scale for average joe gamer. Its about as informative as staring at a brick wall. Again, professional reviews have issues, but at least they have experience with scoring games and they actually have a grading scale that is a full 10 points. You see 6’s, 7s, and 8’s all the time with professional reviewers. Again, the vast majority of average joe gamers have a 4 point grading system, that being 0’s, 1’s, 9’s and 10’s.

          Not thanks. I have been reading professional reviews for as long as they have existed and while their not perfect, their a million times better than user reviews and that’s what I will be sticking with. the key is finding reviewers that have similar tastes to your own. Once you have done that, your golden. there are 3 reviewers, on 3 separate sites, that I read and they haven’t failed me yet.

            The pros tend to lack the passion thar user reviews have. To be fair, not even the “professionals” use the rating scale correctly. they often score high

    • Counterproductive

      November 25, 2014 at 19:49

      I haven’t seen anything but glowing reviews for it, especially when compared to the maligned Dragon Age 2. After DA2, I wasn’t enthused for this entry, but knowing Bioware that shouldn’t have been a concern for me. It turned out to be quite a bit better than I expected, and on par with the original if not better.


      • Tommy Meliet

        November 26, 2014 at 11:50

        do people not realize that dragon age 2 also go great reviews from critics? its a fucking EA game they paid for the reviews.


        • Counterproductive

          November 26, 2014 at 15:16

          I saw lots of bad reviews for Dragon Age 2, filled with complaints of re-used levels and oversimplification. Inquisition is clearly a much different game.


          • DanCa

            November 28, 2014 at 20:35

            Gameplay wise It’s a “little” different. It’s DA:2 with DA:O stuff sprinkled on top

        • RighteousNixon

          April 8, 2015 at 22:01

          Not sure what reviews your reading as I saw a lot of negative and mediocre reviews.


    • BrianDavion

      November 25, 2014 at 23:18

      I can’t grasp why ANYONE would give DA:I bad reviews unless they’re the type whom the minute they spot a bug, any bug, throw their hands in the air and declare the game aweful


      • Folwart

        April 19, 2015 at 07:46

        Because taste is subjective. It’s a pretty good game, but it has flaws. When people are infatuated with something or someone they tend not to see the flaws so readily. I’d give it a 6.5 to 7 Of 10. That seems low, but it’s solidly above average.


    • Dragon_Age

      November 26, 2014 at 03:47

      Depend on what you are waiting for, I would compare it to Assasin Screed, Shadow of mordor, GTA but there’s a decent story behind it… You have a lot of maps, with a lot of side quest, and side quest to side quest, some good moment now and there, plus a pinch of humor.

      BW failed to create a true tactical RPG as DAO was. They created a a dubbed down casual action RPG game with a lot of shit to do, for CONSOLE. Sit on your couch, or plug your controller on your PC and hack and slash your way through the game.

      The game itself isn’t bad, it’s just disappointing to witness what the Dragon Age franchise will become, and have a bitter taste of what ME4 will be.


      • Wicked spades

        November 28, 2014 at 00:43

        How is it less tactical? And if you just hack no slash your way thru it on anything higher than normal you will die. Many times. You can’t abuse heals ofr potions as much either. And da:o was too much of a chess game for me if I want something like that I’ll play chess but origins was fun I will admit.


      • Dragon_Age is an idiot

        November 30, 2014 at 07:16

        rofl tactical RPG..DA O’s combat was the most boring out of all the entries. Oh let’s sit there and watch my guy auto attack something or chase him wildly if he misses. “Dubbed down casual”..Ahh, the typical hardcore loser who thinks games should be where you have to dedicate your life to them in order to enjoy it. DA I is great. Don’t listen to this fool


        • Branislav Lale

          December 15, 2014 at 03:57

          listen to this fool!
          its not his opinion that DAO is a tactical rpg ITS A FACT WHAT IT IS, the second game was crap and the third one has all the good stuff from the 1st and half the bad from the second, its a good game but he combat (if you play on pc withour a controler is pure garbage) was ported badly , for instance with a controler you have auto attack and auto loot when you click on the keyboard you have to walk next to the loot and then and only then you can click on it to pick it up, as for combat you HAVE TO HOLD the left mouse button to attack WTF IS WITH THAT….
          all in all its a good game, combat is shit for the keboard, but if you have a controler you are good to go, oh and the tactical view dont ever use it its just there so they can say they put it there i seriously dont know who made that and was like “IM DONE IT WORKS” couse it does not. buy the game


          • GamerPerson

            December 22, 2014 at 02:22

            Personally, I’ve put 2 hours into the game and I’ve had NO problems with the keyboard and mouse combo. If you play TERA, you ALSO either continuously click to attack or hold down the clicker. Then I’ve heard complaints of edge scrolling. Even this is untrue considering that when you go to the tactical camera, you can survey the field for better positions, who to attack, who to heal, etc. I have no problem with that either because not EVERY game has edge scrolling. When you play old school rpg games, not all of them had this feature. JRPG or otherwise. So, to complain about that is a bit ridiculous.

            I don’t know, MAYBE because I’ve played a few MMORPGs, the things that people complain about the game, seems minuscule to me.

    • Craig Sloan

      November 27, 2014 at 14:07

      It’s my GOTY and metacritic has it at 89/100 so that’s great. Seriously if you want an epic RPG with characters, lore, story and an immersive world to explore it’s this one.


    • Luke Martin

      November 28, 2014 at 05:06

      It’s worth bearing in mind that, for the first week or few, people who are enjoying the game are much less likely to be giving a Metacritic review because they’ll be spending their time playing it instead, while people who don’t like it are going to want to go somewhere to vent about how they bought a game that they didn’t like.

      Also, people tend to rate in “extremes” – 5 or 6 for average, 9 or 10 for amazing, 1 for hated it. This means a lot of meta-ratings are skewed and don’t really represent anything at all.

      And another thing: someone who rushes to Metacritic to give a bad review of a game is likely to have not actually taken into account things that they didn’t mind or actually liked. There’ll be a few features they hated so they’ll say, “the game is awful, 1/10, waste of money, don’t get it.”

      It’s far better to read the reviews to get an idea of the technical quality of the game – are there glitches? does it run smoothly? is the difficulty curve appropriate? does it have good pacing? etc. – and then make up your own mind about the subjective features like art style, voice acting, plot, gameplay mechanics, etc. based off of YouTube videos or by playing it yourself. Just because lots of people like or hate something doesn’t mean you will!


    • DanCa

      November 28, 2014 at 20:30

      Not as good as DA:Origins on pretty much every front, better than the abomination that was DA:2.
      Horrible lazy pc port with performance issues and mediocre to ludicrously bad controls. Game-play wise it’s also a subpar-dumbed down RPG. If you’re a console gamer – most of these issues don’t even matter tho as you’ve proly never played a tactical RPG before thus you won’t be disappointed. It’s a decent game when all is said and done, just fails to live up to it predecessors in the genre.


      • Marcus Subz Coker

        December 21, 2014 at 09:41

        “Haven’t played tactical rpgs because of being a console owner”, get over yourself you idiot!!!!


    • Paulo Ferreira

      December 4, 2014 at 19:27

      Never trust reviews nowadays since they are filled with reviews from fan boys, people with hidden agendas, people who haven’t even fully played the game and everything it has to offer, or just people who are haters for stupid reasons alone that are nothing to do with whether a game is good or bad. That even goes for me i say only way to truly know is to try the game yourself whether at a friends house or a store or maybe even watch some gameplay videos online but reviews are not to be trusted and not what you should use to make your final decision with.

      Give it about 5-15 hours I should say and you will be in for a treat. The story takes a magnificent turn and truly hooks you in. Basically, if you are still at Haven and Hinterlands… you gotta give it a bit more time. Once you get to Skyhold you’ll know what I’m talking about! The story really jumps up to 11 and transitions you nicely into full-game mode if that makes sense.
      Overall, I think the sequences I’m referring to are actually the best moments in the game. Some of the twists and turns along the way are great but that opening hook and bringing you to Skyhold was truly epic. Game is worth it just for those moments even.

    • Matthew Holliday

      November 25, 2014 at 00:53

      atleast in skyrim you can go over the limit though, the limit in DA:I is only 60 unique items, and theres nowhere to store it.
      although theres no limit that ive seen sofar of how many you can carry of each item, which i guess is a plus.
      it hasnt been too much of a bother though, you can generally keep it at 50% capacity if you make sure you keep your teamies gear up to date and sell the surplus weapons, weapons and armour take up the most space.

          i havent felt that my backpack is too small, but unless i notice something better, thats probably my next pick.


  4. Kensei Seraph No DA:I spoilers

    November 24, 2014 at 20:35

    There’s a side/mini-quest available on the DA:I site to get Red Lyruim weapons.

    Well by the time you see this it might have expired so good luck.


    • Kensei Seraph No DA:I spoilers

      November 24, 2014 at 21:11

      How it works:

      You watch a short trailer about one of the characters (don’t skip it) and then it will unlock the Inquest for that character.
      The Inquest is a replay of the trailer (in a larger sized screen) where you will see 3 areas of green mist that you need to click on to complete the Inquest.
      In some cases (mine) the green mist won’t appear when you first do the Inquest, probably because of a slow internet but when you mouse over the are where the mist should be the cursor will turn into a hand symbol (it’s how I did Iron Bull’s Inquest) or you can redo the Inquest (how I did Vivian’s Inquest).

      For those who can’t get the green mist to load here are the locations of the Inquest items (minor spoilers):
      Vivian –
      1. One of the statues on the right as she walks down the hall away from the camera.
      2. The mask of the guy as the camera focuses on his face.
      3. Vivian’s staff.

      Iron Bull –
      1. One of the fighters on Iron Bull’s left as he runs through the battlefield (not sure which as I was moving the mouse randomly).
      2. The head of the guy Iron Bull picks up (this one had a spoiler in it :'{).
      3. The giant.

      Varic –
      1. When it shows most of the tavern it is one of the people walking from the middle of the screen towards the left (it’s the lady who interrogates Varric in DA2).
      2. Over the drunk guy’s shoulder there is a pale looking elf.
      3. Bianca (Like you didn’t see that coming).

    I’m already a hoarder.
    I still had the Cousland Sword from the Prologue when I finished DA:O and that wasn’t the only item that got hoarded just in case (just the one that was kept the longest).


    • Kellye Parish

      November 25, 2014 at 00:59

  7. Bridge

    November 25, 2014 at 06:56

    You don’t need all your valuables, just the ones with a research icon. Everything else or the ones with the blue icon and no text description can be sold. You also will eventually have to sell valuables since you will run out of inventory space if you don’t. So those who sold some shouldn’t feel bad. if you sold some yellow ones then start over the game, its better.

    If your having trouble finding a way to store things. Go to any vendor and sell anything you want to store at this vendor and it will be in his buy back collection for exactly what you sold it for. So not only do you get to store anything, you get to get a loan on the money it’s worth while your not using it. =) Storage trunk isn’t necessary.

      That was already debunked as FUD. It was a “forward this to five friends” style rumor started by some sh1theads on a russian forum that are angry they can’t pirate the game.

      Denuvo does not sit writing to your drive, that’s not how it works. Anyone is free to test this with disk monitoring software. Reddit is full of people that proved its b.s.

  16. Paulo Ferreira

    November 26, 2014 at 05:00

    This game is huge and better then DA2 in every way and I feel it’s better then DAO in everything but the storyline/storytelling. Also like to add that it starts off slow but pick ups soon after and only then do you start to see why it’s so great and everything it has to offer. DAI is 2014 RPG OF THE YEAR for sure and one of the few games worth playing in 2014 and thank god considering a lot of the broken and overhyped games we got in 2014.

    Would just like to also add something about consumer reviews. People forget that the beginning is basically just a tutorial and long introduction so to judge the game that soon is just stupid with RPGS this big of a scale or any game that starts off this way. That’s why I always try a game for myself. It’s the only true way to know and then judge it for myself. There is too many haters and fanboys writing them reviews that have other agendas then truly giving a righteous and sincere review.

    I like DA:I but its nothing like Skyrim. Skyrim wasnt filled with filler MMO quests to give you the illusion of content.

      LOL, seriously? Skyrim was nothing but filler. Copy/paste dungeons, copy/paste areas, copy/paste fetch quests, copy/paste voice actors. So many places in it feel like deja vu because its the same things over and over. And it felt like they only used about 3 voice actors total, all the voices sounded the same.
      Skyrim is great but let’s face it, Bethesda is more quantity than quality in terms of their development and mapmaking approach.

      DA:I on the other hand is totally unique in its areas. Everything feels hand crafted, maps and dungeons are copy/pastes of one another. I’m 50 hours in and not even halfway done with the game and I haven’t had a single “oh this looks like that other area from before”

      Skyrim was also filled with automaton like voice actors that weren’t worth a damn. You’ll rarely find the same voice for different NPC’s twice in DA:I.

    I would enjoy it if they would give us at least ONE storage bin to hide away keepsakes so we don’t have to use up inventory space….

      Why the hell do they call it Move to Valuables? A normal game calls that the Junk bin.

    Dragon Age Inquisition did something I always thought about doing. Take the best part of Skyrim (a huge world) and make it huger but do it in a more intelligent way. Instead of simple making a single really big map that makes no sense (cities too close to each other, change of climate when you move 1 km in a direction), do it like Baldurs Gate did: have several maps. So it´s a mix of Baldurs Gate and Skyrim in that sense.

    This is ridiculous, not only do you blindy praise this game with evidence that doesnt make any sense, you the. point out a glaring flaw and treat it like its the PLAYERS FAULT? Ridiculous and pathetic.

    Great tip. I kept running out of inventory space and wasn’t sure what outside of weapons/armor was okay to sell.

    This is the first Dragon age I have played. At first I was pretty lost, but after 5-8hrs of game-play it has done nothing but grow on me. I think I’m nearly threw the game and I have LOVED it. I am a huge fan of RPG’s and this game did not disappoint! I find myself to be a pretty dedicated and skilled gamer. I’m playing the game on Hard (one down from the highest difficulty forgot what they call it) It has given me a good challenge; however, I have only died 3-4 times after 30hrs of game-play. The combat is nice and efficient, I’m a mage and i typically use 2 mages and 2 warriors if you think this is a bad set-up please comment and tell me, and if anyone could comment their line up and why you like it, it would be greatly appreciated.

    >filled with fetch quests

    When i say huge i am talking about how much there is to explore and as far as fetch quests not all side quests are fetch quests lol and you would know this if you played the whole game. There’s so much to do both good and bad no game is perfect after all but at the end of the day this game has a lot to offer and is a true RPG and one that you can and will play for more hours then some people are accustomed to. Honestly you can choose to enjoy everything the game has to offer and actually explore the huge world it offers or you can skip a lot of it and choose just follow the main story line and beat it a lot sooner its your choice.

    In the end though Bioware did deliver while still not perfect its one game that they can be proud of. Hey there are some features and things i miss from past DA titles like Blood Magic specialization for example, not being able to choose how you lay out your attribute points, and i thought DAO had allot better storytelling/story line! But i’m hoping these are things they bring back or do on the next Dragon age title but for now i am happen in the direction they have gone and in what they have created for us a true RPG that you can enjoy and play for 180 hours or more if you really wanted to and choose to explore and for all it has to offer. Now i hope like DAO it comes out with some great DLC and lots of because that was something DAO had and did right as well.

    This isn’t a great game. But it’s packed with content. Of course anyone who believed bioware when they said the campaign would be mp, until it was the mo would directly affect the campaign until it was mp acts like the mp in mass effect. Well of course were disappointed but I’ve given up be living the lies from producers and developers anymore. This game plays like a single player Diablo. Terrible loot system intact. You roll mage, you won’t get good mage gear, ever. Rogue? Same. Storage? No such thing in this game, making it imperative that you sell gear before every mission, which is tedious at the least and for the longer missions almost a game breaker. With just over 100 hours I feel it’s safe to say that while The content is there, the game breaking bugs, glitches and hiccups are hard to get past coupled with bad gear, no storage and a very awkward perk system that just leaves you feeling like you are missing out on way more than you are gaining makes this game a solid 6. Skip ahead 2 months, and guesstimate 5 updates later and we’ll have a solid 8.5. Definitely a lot to do, lot of bang for your buck, but it does boil down to, not enough places to visit (wtf do you not get about open world Bioware ?!) very buggy and one of the saddest multiplayer experiences I’ve seen in a game in a long while. If you want to play with friends, stick to assassin’s Creed unity or far cry 3.

    Do the wooden figures or trinkets have any value other than just selling them?

    PSA to your PSA: to avoid people limited in inventory space:
    -avoid picking up anything, but jewelry, not the gems or statues or lions sculptures or medallions unless its off a dead corpse you need to do for a mission.
    -if your low on gold best option is jewelry and gear over anything else, best to mark where you saw certain items for when you do find a mission that requires it
    -If your in a one of a kind mission that will vanish onces its completed pick up anything in those for you might not see them ever again once its finished for example, Cassandras mission to the seeker’s castle
    -last thing unrelated but all gamers should do, spam ea/da: i’s devs to make a storage system in our holds/ separate possible quest/requisition items that shouldn’t take up space in inventory. Also mark what camp requisitions have been completed even if they are infinitely long.

    I’m at 35 hours and only through 38% of the total game.



    January 17, 2015 at 13:46

    ummmm for everyone saying it got bad reviews im very very lost? Last i checked it just got the Game Of The Year award so i guess it cant suck to bad. I for one believe they have redeemed themselves and then some! DA: I is epic just the scale alone deserves respect i don’t think anybody in this discussion that has negative thoughts even has a clue on what is involved to create something of this magnitude. The Story, World, Characters, Combat and scale are just outstanding and Bioware deserves every award they get for this game.

    Something have noticed. If I sell off of my valuables list an item I need, I am finding it in shops at Val Royeaux. I think if you sell something at Skyhold, it will appear at other shops around Thedas. Something worth checking in more detail.

    70 hours in wish I didn’t spend them. This COULD be a great game but it is 90% filler. All the things I didn’t like about an MMO wrapped into a single player game. I LOVED the first game and pretty much a Bioware fan in everyway but this game was a sad disappointment. The first 15 hours if you skip the majority of the hinterlands was good after that a lot of boring for a small amount of good stuff. First Dragon fight was awesome though.
