  • How To Sell Artifacts - It terms of usable items, artifacts are completely useless. They exist for one purpose: to be gathered and sold. As a result, you should sell your artifacts as often as you can.Selling artifacts is as easy as finding Brok or Sindri. Once you access the blacksmith shop all you need to do is scroll over to the Sell tab (check the pic above). If you have any artifacts in your inventory you can sell them off for hacksilver.
  • Sell Extra Enchantments and Other Items - You can also sell a number of other items too, including resources, enchantments and extra armor. There is no carry weight restriction in God of War but also no reason to hang on to things, either.
  • Pro Tip: Improve Armor First - Though selling extra items is a great way to get more hacksilver quickly, do it sensibly. A good rule of thumb is to check your armor inventory each time you're at the shop and see if anything you're carrying might be an improvement on what you have equipped. Remember to take enchantments and upgrades into consideration too. A lot of base gear might seem worse than what you're wearing, but after a few upgrades it might not be.

Selling the odds and ends in your inventory is one way to go, but lots of hacksilver can be gained by exploring too. In fact, you can make a nice chunk of change just cruising in the boat.
  • Sail Around Lake Of Nine - If you find yourself a few hacksilver short of an update a simple, reliable way to find some fast is to sail around the Lake of Nine.

You can also harvest Aegir's Gold inside the shimmering golden circles that appear on the surface which you can sell at a blacksmith.

  • Smash Pottery - There's also a fair amount of hacksilver to be found in smashing pottery.
