  • Herb Garden: Growing herbs in the garden can provide a steady amount of extra gold. The number of planters differs depending on class. Three for warriors or six for mages and rogues. With all relevant Inquisition perks (Connections, sterling reputation and elite clientele) the most profitable herbs are rare tier 3 (Felandaris, etc.) which sell for
    30 Currency (Inquisition) each.

Bugs Edit
