I just started playing Thief: Deadly Shadows. I'm now in the city for the first time.

I'm wondering if there will be differences fences over the course of the game. Will they give different prices for my loot? Does it make sense to hold back on selling now, to get better prices later on?

If not, is there any reason not to always use "sell all"?

No, there are no price different between the fences, however some fences will only buy set items (jeweler only will buy gems etc)

As to holding on to loot for selling later, there is no real point, because there will be no change in selling price later in the game, and thus there is nothing to gain from holding on to loot

Thanks! What about the second question, does it even make sense to hold on to some loot? – Cort May 10 '12 at 15:23
No, i think there is, unless i missed something..... I would get rid of it myself... – Gareth Jones May 10 '12 at 20:40
