I'm playing a huge jerk in Divinity: Original Sin 2, killing pretty much any trader I find. Very clearly, they won't drop all the wares they have for sale, but they definitely drop some of them. Is there a way to know which goods will be dropped before murdering the trader?

    Across 80 hours of this game and countless hours of the first, I have never found a rhyme or reason as to what people drop when they die, whether it's traders or enemies etc. I am fairly sure it's the same as normal looting, it's a random roll every time. – n_plum Nov 25 '17 at 23:40

I believe that it's entirely random, yet skill-books seem to have priority. Also all items that you've sold to the merchant will be dropped as well.

    So could I possibly buy everything he has by trading in my items, then kill him, and get all of my items back? – Omega Nov 29 '18 at 22:17

    Yes, that does seem to be the case. – BLARG Nov 30 '18 at 1:25
