Gnome Gold is a type of material used to upgrade armors up to 9+. Gnome Gold can be found by looting enemies and treasure chests or seeking them throughout the city near the end of the game. If you choose to play New Game Plus, don't be surprised to find an abundant amount of Gnome Gold. Gnome Gold is found almost EVERYWHERE, and can be often found in several treasure chests near each other. The amount of Gnome Gold found in NG+ makes finding Copper and Silver look rare. Gnome gold is also used to upgrade the general sword up to +9.
