As in any game with an open world, money is one of the most important elements of the game. You can get gold in different ways and then spend it on the items you need. This way you will be able to constantly support your character with new potions or new weapons. That way, your character'll always be ready to fight.
In GreedFall there is a similar system as in most games. For completing a quest you will receive experience points and cash as a reward. The amount of these depends on the quest you take. In addition, you also gain reputation points.
After killing your opponents, you can collect things from their pockets, so you can simply loot them. You can often find small amounts of money in their loot.
In addition, this way you can get potions, armor items or raw materials.
Items from chests
