Some professional gamers questioned how do I drop stuff in oblivion? Well, If you want to know how to drop things in Oblivion, you are at the right place. In this article, I will tell you all about dropping stuff in oblivion.

When Should You Drop Stuff In Oblivion?

Oblivion is a popular game among gamers. But when talking about dropping things in oblivion, in most cases, you will need to drop an item due to one of the following reasons:

  • You cannot move around with massive objects with you,
  • You want to secure the weapons at some place. This works only in main maps and not on dungeons,
  • You cannot sell the item to clear your inventory.

Selling is a great alternative for dropping. However, for this, certain care factors are to be noticed in the inventory window. You can see a gold column in the inventory window that shows the valuation of your items. When this selling ability increases, the vendors get ready to pay higher values. Thus, if your item value goes up, it is always a better option to sell it off.
