Hello. I've just started playing, and I wonder if there is an option to store excess items, as it was in Witcher 1 and 2? I couldn't find the option in the first tavern, and wonder if I should go on a crazy herb-gathering spree or not.

i think herbs have such a low weight you wont "feel" it, even if you take everything you can find while exploring the map(s).

Weapons, Armor, Trophies, ... have much more weight. You can win a Horse saddle, blinker and pockets when you win the horse riding challenges in Velen. The pockets will offer you (dont nail me here) 40 Slots i think?

You can sell or disassemble stuff you dont need and provide free space on your own.

As far as i know there is no chest where you can store your goods.
