This page defines some of the terms used in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The terms are in ascending alphabetical order.
The image of an item is the icon in inventory.
- When possible, use the game extracted file. (ask an admin if you're having trouble finding an image)
- 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.
The name of an item is the name as it appears in the game when the item is selected in your inventory.
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:

- 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.
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
- 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).
