I know from the completely irrational prices offered by Heodan, the caravan merchant in the tutorial, that (at least in theory...) some merchants can and will offer me a greater return on any merchandise I sell to them.

The question is, which ones? Which merchants will offer me the best recompense for the piles of ill gotten armaments that I am ever so eager to sell to the highest bidder?

After testing on a representative sample of items (magical and non-magical weapon, armor, trap, potion and lockpicks) on several merchants (including but not limited to Defiance Bay marketplace, Gilded Vale blacksmith and inkeeper, stronghold merchants and one Vithrack)...

It is not dependant on reputation in the area (tested with manually changing Gilded Vale rep with cheats), chapter you're in (tested on transition between 2 and 3), type of merchandise they sell, the location they're in, whether you completed a quest for them or not. The sell worth of every item is fixed and you will get the same price regardless of the merchant you choose.

    So Heodan is just a tremendous outlier then? Odd. Commented Apr 8, 2015 at 22:41
  • @LessPop_MoreFizz I admit, I didn't start a new game to check him specifically. Are you positive that his prices were worse than standard?

    Better, actually. And yes. Commented Apr 8, 2015 at 22:53

Yes Heodan pays a lot more than other merchants... but you can hardly sell him any loot. I think the idea is to change starting gear to what you want, he buys and sells at same price. There should be info about it though cause most of us don't care to buy stuff on start cause of low money and merchants usual margin.
