So I assume the setting for the story takes place in a fantasy setting of sometime after the fall of the Western Roman Empire(but of course the Roman Empire did not fell completely hence the "Byzantine") So the middle ages... where these barbarian people made a name for themselves. Basically to sound blunt the white people of today... Hence even the English was once a tribe.. and that Britannia was a Roman province(not the Britannia in code gease but I'm talking about bat shit crazy manic ancestors of the people known as "white people" of today)


But yes back to the topic can someone please elaborate why guts would need that much gold living in that timeline(middle ages)

Guts is a mercenary during the Golden Age arc. He was piss poor as child and given his personality before the joining the band of hawks, he knows that money is the only thing he can rely on.
Though all of that changes in the Retribution arc.

Living expenses and financial security. He's a solo mercenary, if he's injured and can't fight for a period of time he's as good as dead without coin. Nobody's going to get him free medical attention, or food, or logging, or transportation.

Money makes the world go round, etc.

Plus at that point in the story I'm 99% sure he was aiming to get out of mercenary work, and that requires savings.

Where do you think he puts his money?

Bag of infinite holding?

The amount of gold he was paid doesn't make sense to me. Like serious...

I've never watched Berserk, but I'm of the opinion who cares how much money someone has whether it's anime or real life. That's no slight to your question, just my honest answer.

It also costs currency to maintain weapons and armor, etc.

I don't remember Guts ever having that much money. He needed money for food, to maintain his armor and weapons. Remember he busts his helmet in the first episode. And then when he joins with the Hawks I assumed most of it went to Griffith to fund the Hawks. Fighting costs money.
