Are you trying to figure out how to trade in Baldur’s Gate 3? Trading can be extremely beneficial to you and your party, so it’s best you learn how to do it early on in the game.
And trading isn’t just limited to merchants in Baldur’s Gate 3. There are also ways to trade with other NPCs including your own companions.
So, let’s go ahead and learn how to trade in Baldur’s Gate 3. This will help you make sure you’re always stocked up on some useful items available in your inventory.
How to trade with NPCs
To trade with NPCs that aren’t merchants in Baldur’s Gate 3, you’ll need to click on a small icon that looks like a hand catching coins. This icon may show up on the lower left corner of your screen while speaking with certain NPCs.
This icon is easy to miss, so make sure you’re always looking out for it while engaging an NPC in conversation. You can obtain lots of weapons, items, and scrolls with interesting effects in this manner. For example, you may get an item that lets you talk to animals.
It’s also important to note that seeing an NPC with this icon active doesn’t mean you will always be able to trade with them in this manner. Sometimes, the option will be disabled or disappear depending on where you are in the conversation with certain characters.
How to trade with companions
Trading with your companions requires you to go into your inventory, selecting the items you want to trade, and selecting the companions you wish to trade with. This is a great way to manage your party’s inventory space.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to trade with your companions:
- Open your inventory menu.
- Right-click on the item you want to trade.
- Click on Send To and choose the party member you want to trade with.
- Go into your companion’s inventory.
- Right-click on the item you wish to receive from your companion.
- Select Send To and choose your character.
You can trade with companions at any point during Baldur’s Gate 3. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the middle of an action or in the heat of battle as long as you can open up your inventories.
