Max Gold at Game Beginning (5766 gold) + All Starting Quest (Candlekeep)


Did not found any tutorials how to get max gold at beginning of this game. So I made one. This is just one way to start this game. Anyway gold has not affect much because there is so many sources to get gold, so It would be better to keep some items instead of sell all.

    the only problem with this, is that this is a modded game, a lot of these items that you are getting are not in the original EE game

    okay, so i just did a gold piece run in the unmodded game, and the absolute most you can achieve ( without killing guards and making your REP drop to nothing ) is 2644 GP

    how it can happen:

    make a fighter/thief halfling
    with 19 DEX, 18 CHA

    with 60 open locks, 50 pick pockets

    since you have fighter, the max you can start with is 150

    start off, take to firebeard 30 times, get 300
    ( he has nothing to pick pocket )

    take to nobleman, with 18 CHA and say the right thing for the extra items in the top room

    steal from chest and bookcase in the main tavern room

    then go upstairs and pick all the chests, steal all the goodies
    ( no one to pick pocket here)

    then pick pocket bolts from the inn keeper

    then go down and give fuller the bolts and get the dagger +1

    ( using the oil of speed from obe and one of the party members to identify that dagger )
    pick all the chests in this room and steal all the goodies from all 5 chests

    grab GP from barrel and chest outside near the bottom

    fight carbos for that nifty dagger

    go to priest house for a healing potion ( tell him you would like one )
    pick pocket him for another one
    pick the lock and steal another one
    ( even though the innkeeper will not buy these or scrolls so this is almost counter productive, but meh )

    go to hull and give him his sword

    go to reevor and kill the rats pick up the silver ring in one of the barrels
    get 5 GP for your reward

    go to the house where shank is, whack him, steal all the weapons and such from the house

    go to phy... whats her name, hand in her book and get her whacky gem
    ( her golden necklace requires a whooping 80 pick pocket, so no luck there )

    sell all your goodies that are sellable and you will end up with

    ( as i said before, the inn keeper doesnt buy potions or scrolls in the unmodded game )

    although with this being said, i never knew about the 300 gold from firebeard or, the nobleman items
    and here i thought i knew everything about this game

    after 3000+ play throughs and im learning that for the first time :)

    @sarevok57 Yes that is true. Also thx for testing unmodded game, I add those on video description also. It suprise we can always learn more, so by the Obe´s words: "wisdom is only possessed by the learned". Friend spell affecting CH was actually not beneficial when selling, it only helps when buying. Learned that after made this video.
