I understand that all treasure is there to be sold to get more gold. However, I also, know that some of the treasures can be combined to make items that can be sold for even MORE gold. What items can be combined, and what items can be sold as is to maximize profit?
Here are all the treasures that you can find in Resident Evil 4 and how much they will get you from the merchant. Some of them can be combined in order to make items that will get you more money. Some items are found close to each other while some span the entire game.
These are the items that you can combine together in order to get more money. The number next to the top item in the list is the amount you'll get if you are patient enough to combine all the pieces together while the sub-items are the components you need and the money you'll get if you sell the piece individually.
