The Warden has access to a precious few merchants in the game during Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening and Witch Hunt. Each has a limited stock which can vary depending on plot choices. Each charge differing prices, offering a fairly standard markup to the item's value for selling items to the party. Selling looted items to any merchant always yields the same price at one-fourth the item's value. One exception is Gorim, who pays twice as much if the Warden is of the Dwarf Noble origin. The other one is Armaas in Awakening, who pays less.

Loot sold at either the Party Camp or Warden's Keep will remain in these merchants' respective inventories. The prices you get for loot appear to be independent of whom you're selling to. Though the buyback list is cleared when the PC exits the merchant's window, the merchant will keep what was sold to them. This means that the PC can still buy items back, albeit at a higher price, as long as the merchant remains available. The party camp merchant will reset his inventory twice based on certain plot events. Consider using these merchants for items to recover some day, and avoid selling them extraneous junk, as this will make it more difficult to find useful items sold to them. The party camp merchant also has the highest prices in the early game, so avoid buying from him.
