The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Achievements

Miser

10
Collect 10000 orens.

There's a few different ways of making this easier.

One way is to just stockpile items, making sure to store anything unneeded in the chests found across each chapter. Then when you think you have enough; save, then sell everything. You can go back to your save once you've unlocked the achievement.

Chest Locations:

Chapter 1 - Southwest area of the lower level of the Flotsam inn, near the door to the brothel.
Chapter 2 (Roche's Path) - Outside the encampment by the brothel tents.
Chapter 2 (Iorveths Path) - Talk to the innkeeper and use the storage chest in his room at the Cauldron.
Chapter 3 - Inside the ruined building used as an inn southwest of the notice board in Loc Muinne.

Alternatively, if you follow Roche's path, you will come across the visionary's hut in the "Path to Vision" mission. Here you have to collect Harpie ingredients. The Harpies will respawn if you go back to the hut and then come back out again. All you have to do is repeat that process until you have enough.

Thankfully, valuable Harpie feathers are light, so you will be able to carry a lot back for sale.

It is not cumulative. You need to have 10 000 orens at the same time. The best place to boost some money is in Act II outside the Visionary's hut in The Path To Vision quest. There is infinite spawn of harpies. After killing 4 harpies go back on the path a few steps back and get back there to kill another 4 harpies and so on. Collect the loot and after half an hour or hour (depends on how much you can carry) go sell it. If needed repeat a few times. Good luck.

This place is also good to do Perfectionist achievement.

#2 thanks for that info. I just got here looking for tips considering that Perfectionist achievement. Surprising that this Miser achievement isn't cumulative, because usually that's the way.

I found this achievement easiest to earn in at the beginning of act III. Over by where you arm wrestle Numa, if the shop is on your right, continue left following the wall until you see two guards and a guy in front of them. continue the path and it should lead you up to two harpies and two creatures known as Erynias. Kill these four, and go to your right until there is a ledge u can drop down. Instead of dropping down, wait for 12 hours (I kept switching between noon and midnight) and they will respawn. Rinse and repeat. Note that the Erynias drop all types of mutagens. The best i have recieved off of them is a madness mutagen; hence this is a decent place to grind for mutagens.

#4 is right. Trying this method will earn you around 300 orens worth of loot every 3-4 groups killed, which with a high level character is very quick.
If you're close to the 10,000 i recomend saving and selling everything you have to get the achievement, then reload your save. 10,000 must be on you at once.

#6 has the best approach if you're just playing through the game. I had about 3200 orens, and by Act III, I had so many alchemy ingredients in storage that I had more than enough there to make up the other 7000.

A way that I found is to Arm wrestle Adam Pangratt in Act II on Roche's side. 100 orens a win and infinite tries. Farming monsters is probably more effective but if your not so combat-savy this is a nice alternative.

This was an annoying achievement. I made sure I did this on my first play through on normal. Including about 1,500 spent orens, it took me until Act II to accumulate 10,000 at one time. I had around 7,000 orens and used @8 advice arm wrestling Mr. Pangratt on Roche's side of story. Took about 10 - 15 min to finish the other few thousand orens off.

It's not to much but just outside the inn in Vergen is a dwarf that can be convinced to give 400 orens
