This is a guide on How to Dismantle Items in the game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Read on to learn how to dismantle items, as well as where and whether you should dismantle items or sell them as they are.
List of Contents
Dismantling items can be done by talking to any Blacksmiths or Armorsmiths you find. The armorer's icon are displayed as an armor with a hammer, while blacksmith's icon are displayed as an anvil with a hammer. These icons can be seen on the map or on the compass at the upper right corner of your screen.
Once inside the shop, move to the Crafting section and select Dismantle. From there, you can select the items you want to dismantle on the left side of the screen, while the crafting components you will receive are displayed the right. Do not forget that once your item is dismantled, it will be lost forever.
Some items like jewels and shells are more profitable when dismantled and then sold, instead of selling them straight away to merchants. Keep this in mind when you are checking the components you will receive after dismantling the item.
An item like Gold Ruby Ring only sells for 92 coins to merchants. However, if they are dismantled, you will receive a Ruby and a Gold Nugget, which will sell for more coins. Rubies can be sold for 175 coins to armorers.
Dismantling Items with runes or glyphs will return the runes and glyphs you inserted on the item. This is especially useful if you have a rune equipped to armor or a weapon but would like to equip it to another weapon instead.
