In our Baldur’s Gate 3 Wares Explained guide, we are going to, well, explain what the Add to Wares option does and how you can use it to your advantage. If you send items to wares, they don’t vanish or anything like that, don’t worry. It’s just a method of organizing your inventory and saving a bit of time. Here’s how it all works.
Wares in Baldur’s Gate 3
Marking items as Wares in Baldur’s Gate 3 basically stamps them as junk you intend to sell to a vendor. When you select an item and then use Add to Wares, you can’t use it anymore, even though it remains in your inventory. For example, if you choose a scroll and then send it to Wares, you can no longer cast or learn the spell from the scroll. Now, this mechanic’s usefulness is two-fold. For one, it’s makes navigating your inventory easier, since you can just let your eyes glide off anything you’ve checked as Wares. More importantly, when you get to a merchant, you can just select Sell Wares in the bottom left and just trade in every marked item in one fell swoop. That’s efficiency!
And there you have it, that’s what Wares are in Baldur’s Gate 3 and what Add to Wares does. Now, some of you might not know how to send items to Wares, so let’s get you up to speed real quick. If there’s an item that’s not in your inventory, right-click on it and then select Pick Up, followed by Add to Wares. If the item is already in your inventory, right-click it and then select Add to Wares. Finally, you can also hold shift and left-click on an item in your inventory to mark it as Wares. Do it however seems easiest to you. Taking a minute or two to sift through your stuff and marking it as junk to sell will save you some time (and nerves) when trading with merchants.
