About this mod

One novigrad merchant sells many rare items, which are hard to find, may be missed, never to be found again or not available during normal playthrough.

If you need Gwent cards, use The Gwent Card Dealer mod. This and Gwent mod are mutually exclusive, because they modify the same files.

Warning 1: aforementioned merchant is available between 06:00 and 18:00.
Warning 2: make sure other mods do not override changes made by this mod.
Renaming "modRareItemsMerchant" folder to something like "mod0500_RareItemsMerchant", so it is first alphabetically, might work.
Warning 3: buying some witcher gear diagrams makes some witcher-gear-treasure-hunt-quests unfinishable.

How to install:
Extract "modRareItemsMerchant" folder from archive, move it into ".../The Witcher 3/mods/" folder (I mean game installation folder, NOT "My Documents")

Modded files:
DATA\gameplay\items\def_loot_shops.xml (<loot name="_store__LW_Novigrad_General_store")
DATA\gameplay\items_plus\def_loot_shops.xml (the same but for New Game Plus)
