There are side quests in Resident Evil 4 Remake, also known as the Merchant Requests, which ask you to find items and sell them to the Merchant itself. One of these valuable items is the Scratched Emerald. This guide will discuss how to find the desired treasure item.
- Scratched Emerald is a treasure that can be found in Chapter 12 of the game.
- It is hidden inside a crow’s nest on the path joining Courtyard and Wine cellar.
- You can also sell it to the Merchant for 5000 Pesetas.
- Collecting the Scratched Emerald is also part of a Merchant Request, The Jewel Thief.
- If you have activated the side quest, you will be rewarded with 3x Spinels upon submitting the treasure to the Merchant.
What Is Scratched Emerald
Scratched Emerald is a valuable item colored green that comes under the treasure category. You can find the Emerald in Chapter 12 when exploring the Castle.
Collecting the treasure must also complete a Merchant Request known as Jewel Thief. Find the Request on the wall inside the big hall at the start of Chapter 12. The quest’s description also hints at where you might find the Scratched Emerald.
The item can be sold for 5000 Pesetas when taken to the Merchant. If you picked the Merchant Request before selling the Scratched Emerald, you would get 3x Spinels for trading.
Scratched Emerald Location
Scratched Emerald can be found inside a crow’s nest close to the second Merchant of Chapter 12. The nest is located in the passage connecting Wine Cellar and the Courtyard.
To reach this location, you must take a right from the Merchant’s spot where you picked up your Request. Open the small gate after you make a right and proceed. Take another right turn to observe a large door.
Open the door and keep going until you find yourself inside the Ballroom. Go down the main stairs and open the large door at the far end. A crow will be sitting on a piece of stone on the other side of the door.
Approach the crow so it flies away. From here onwards, you must follow the crow as it will take you directly to its nest. If you lose the crow, keep going straight until you see a large door entrance. Look to your right after crossing from the door to see the crow’s nest on the slanted roof.
Once you reach the targeted location, look at the slanted roof for a crow’s nest. When identified, shoot it down with any weapon so the Scratched Emerald drops on the ground.
Taking It To The Merchant
After collecting it, your final job will be to take it to the Merchant if you wish to complete the Merchant Request. There will be two options for you from here; either take the Emerald to the same Merchant where you found the blue letter for the side quest, or you can find a new merchant that is relatively closer.
After you find the scratched Emerald, look to your left to witness a small, closed brown door. Open it to find the Merchant to your right. You can sell the treasured item over there for 5000 Pesetas and collect your 3 Spinels as a reward for completing the Jewel Thief request.
That is all your information about the Scratched Emerald in Resident Evil 4 Remake. If you also want to complete the merchant request, grab it at the start of the Chapter, as there will be a checkpoint after its location, which will not let you take it afterward.
