Resident Evil Village harks back to the series’ fourth mainstream entry in many ways. For example, there are valuable treasures hidden in the surroundings and dropped by enemies. Trinkets like Crystal Skulls can sell for high prices, but is it good to barter with them? Was treasure ever a requirement for solving puzzles in RE8? Here’s the lowdown on safe-for-sale treasure in Resident Evil 8.
Is selling treasure safe in RE8?
Selling treasure items to the merchant, Duke, is always safe in Resident Evil Village. Anything categorized under the “Treasure” tab in RE8 games is completely safe to get rid of.
It didn’t take long for most players to find the treasure for the first time, as Lycan enemies in the early game dropped Crystal Skulls quite often. Instead of hoarding these treasures, simply sell them outright to earn money to buy new items and upgrades. There’s no point in keeping standard treasures in inventory — sell, sell, sell!
However, there is one instance where holding treasure trinkets can be beneficial. Always read short item descriptions for each new treasure, as some will appear as “Combinable” in the menu. Players can combine these items with other treasures to increase the value versus selling each piece separately. Auctioning them separately can sometimes be a better call, though, if, for example, the user craves some quick cash.
Making use of the Duke shop is a great way to prepare for the horrors to come, and flipping treasures quickly is a great way to earn money in Resident Evil 8. Check the map often to see which areas still have undiscovered items, because They’re often pieces of valuable treasure.
