This page defines some of the terms used in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The terms are in ascending alphabetical order.

Item ID

This is the name of the item one can use in console commands. For most, this is used to add an item to their inventory. Important note: installing and using mods (or altering game files in any way) is doing so at your own risk and not this wikia or Wikia Inc.'s fault if the game crashes, save files are lost, etc.

  • To add an item, bring up the console command and type additem ('item')filling in "item" with the Item ID and hitting enter. For example, to add Beauclair blinders, you'd type additem ('Toussaint horse blinders 3').
    • Note that you have to have the correct expansion pack installed to add items from them (you can, however, add items from them before you actually start them as long as they're installed).
    • Item ID is case sensitive. Using the above example, additem ('Toussaint Horse Blinders 3') would NOT work because of the capitalized "H" and "B".

Item image

The image of an item is the icon in inventory.

Image requirements:

  1. When possible, use the game extracted file. (ask an admin if you're having trouble finding an image)
  2. Do not enlarge an image past its original/default size, even if it's small. This leads to distortion, making it worse and not suitable for the wiki.

Item name

Item tier

The tier of an item is displayed in the right upper corner of the item window that opens when you mouse over or left click the item. The tier can be one of these:

Item value

The value (sometimes abbreviated as Val) is the value as it appears in the game when the item is selected in your inventory when NOT trading. Item values are followed by the icon Template:Crown Item Crownitem

  • You'll pay more than this value when you buy the item.
  • You'll get less than this value when you sell the item.
  • The prices are better if you trade with an expert on the item. So sell weapons to a blacksmith and herbs to a herbalist.

Item weight

The weight (sometimes abbreviated as Wgt) of an item is the weight as it appears in the game when the item is selected in your inventory. Item weights are followed by the icon Template: Weight Item Tw3 weight brown

  • If you have more than 1 item of the same kind in your inventory, and the item is stackable, these items occupy only 1 square in the inventory and in the right bottom corner of the item icon the quantity number is displayed. In such case the weight when the item is selected is the total weight of all items represented by the icon. Note that weight isn't linear when stacked (e.g.: 1 of an item may say it weighs .02, but a stack of 2 may say .03).

Monster average loot

The average loot is the average loot for killing 1 monster of this species. The average loot of a monster is determined by killing multiple monsters of the species and register (in the source of the monster page) the loot of each monster.
