Crate 3.png

In The Witcher, Geralt must acquire many items and he can not always afford to buy them from merchants. To this end, it is beneficial for him to enter all premises he can and rifle through any and all containers found therein for the supplies he needs.

In a sense, all creatures, human and otherwise are containers, as are many trees, shrubs and plants which bear the herbs required for alchemical potions. They will not be dealt with individually in this section as they each have their own page anyway.

The easiest, and most reliable, way to find any containers in view is to hold down the Alt-key. This highlights all the usable items in view, a great way to find remains after a large melee.
