The management of the inventory in Dragon Age: Inquisition is not that complicated, but there are several points to remember. The game uses a color-coded system, e.g. weapons or armors of higher quality have different colors than the common ones. Of course, this is helpful while searching for the best available item. An even more important piece of information is that, by default, the capacity of the inventory is 60 slots. It is a very strict number so I recommend that you often visit merchants and sell all the items that nobody has any use for. The important information is that you can spend the Inquisition perk points, to buy perks called "Antivan Tailoring" and " Imperial Court Tailoring". Obtaining these perks expands the inventory up to 90 slots.
Note! While calculating the occupied slots in the inventory, the game does not include crafting items (i.e. herbs, materials or schematics). You can keep the unlimited number of these in your inventory.
The inventory has been divided into nine categories which make it easier to view it:
- Weapons - in here, there are several subcategories connected with various weapons, and an additional tab for shields (they can also be used by warriors to deal damage).
- Accessories - this category includes, among others, rings, belts and amulets
- Crafting Materials
- Valuables - The only use for these items is to sell them at the highest possible profit
- Weapon Schematics
- Armor Schematics
If you do not like collecting everything that you find and visiting merchants often, pick only items of the highest value. These are the legendary items and all sorts of valuables that, apart from the profit you can make by selling them, provide you with nothing else and they are not wanted by any of the NPCs. The items of the lowest value, on the other hand, are upgrades so, if you are not going to use them (e.g. you already have better ones or you prefer to craft them on your own), get rid of them in the first place. Sale prices, for each merchant, are the same which means that you can sell your items to the first merchant that you meet.
