• Merchants in Elden Ring refer to several NPC Merchants that can be found in multiple locations. Merchants sell various items and equipment including Consumables, Materials, Weapons and Armor as well as notes containing hints on how to acquire certain items. Each Merchant has a different stock and they are usually found near Sites of Grace or other easily accessed landmarks. This page contains a list of all Merchants in the game.

Merchants found around the different regions of Elden Ring Include:

Nomadic Merchant Notes and Tips

  • Additional Notes & Tips go here
  • If the Player kills a Nomadic Merchant, the Merchant drops a Bell which can be given to the Twin Maiden Husks. Then the Twins can sell the same items as the now-dead Nomadic Merchant. Allowing the Player to restock at the Roundtable instead of running around and trying to figure out where to buy what.

Trivia

  •  Several merchants play an instrument with a consistent tune. In the Cathedral of the Forsaken, just above the Frenzied Flame Proscription, a non-hostile NPC plays a similar tune, on a similar instrument. In addition, several merchants, when fought, use Frenzied Flame incantations.
  • The description of the Nomadic Merchant's Set reads: These merchants once thrived as the Great Caravan, but after being accused of heretical beliefs, their entire clan was rounded up and buried alive far underground. Then, they chanted a curse of despair, and summoned the flame of frenzy.
  • The instrument used by the merchants seems to be a fictional version of a rebab that is played in a unique position and sounds like a violin. The bow of the instrument is used as a weapon when provoked and does not exist as equipment for the player.

      I think the only reason they would do this is if the lie that was told about them was actually a lie. I would be like "this who you think I am then that's exactly who you're going to get" and use the thing they punished me for against them. I really believe that Shabriri the entity could some how see the future and knew that if he told this lie the merchants would use and spread the Frenzied Flame around. That's why he has a smerk on the pendant.

        Turn it around and imagine they actually were intentionally spreading madness. Then they get punished and now they're spinning the story in their favor. Hell that could have been their m.o. in spreading madness in the first place. Appear as an innocent merchant, get an ear and whisper madness into the person's ear until they go mad. Then when they get sealed up they summon their God into the world. It would match up with the methods that Shabribri uses to get the tarnished to seek the frenzied flame.

          Is it only me that always finishes merchants sentences when the say "Have a Safe Journey" with "Land Strider". For some reason the tone and voice acting reminds me of Skyrim Dragonborn DLC.

            I guess their bell bearing shops does not carry to NG+, it's not stated anywhere on the wiki but that would be kinda weird, having access to their shop at the roundtable hold with them alive in the world, i was wondering if i should kill them all to gather their bell bearing but since they probably doesn't carry to NG+ i won't, i really didn't felt like killing them, poor fellows did not choose their fate and are always nice to you

              ``Oh it doesn't matter it's always comes down to the tarnished merchant to sell these sorts of things.``

                Those merchants are cool but you know what's cooler ? Having their inventories gathered at the twink husk vendor. So do your part and collect their bell-bearing out of their stomach too.

                  I'm sorry but why does literally everyone say Shabriri accused them of worshipping the frenzied flame? I know Shabriri's woe talisman says that he was convicted of slander and all that but another item description says that he was the FIRST instance of the frenzied flame popping up in the world. Also the nomad ash item description says that they were buried because of the "maddening sickness" that followed them not because of any accusations (not to mention the fact that the nomads knew how to pray to the frenzied flame to summon the three fingers). The nomads that are still around also use frenzied flame incantations and mention wanting everything to be burned away when you kill them. I know we all want to dunk on the golden order for our war criminal queen Ranni but like....it's literally all right there guys come on.

                    I read everywhere that you can just kill every merchant. Only thing is that the one in limgrave teaches you the gesture to start the blaid questline. I'm afraid to kill other merchants becuase of this. Is the limgrave merchant the only one who is related to any quest or are there more merchants like this?

                      So the ones with masks are actually blind i pushed him away from his spot and he used his slappy stick as an actual cane and made clicking noises.

                                        I still say people who are too lazy to walk 2 centimeters to get to these merchants should get a 7th and forced NG ending for killing them, just all of them banding together around your location and merking your lazy ass to the next NG run.

                                            Does anyone know what the instrument these guys play is called? It looks kind of like a cross between a banjo and a violin.

                                                I was hoping for a list of all their items here so I could just ctrl+F to find what I need. Having to find who sells which arrows sucks. Making them is worse, since you need RNG to kill an animal that only drops 1 when you need 3 to make 10 when strong enemies need 100, or 28 thin bone beast drops.

                                                      If you kill merchants do the prices of items at other merchants go up? Asking because something similar was in DS3 if you killed old Shrine Handmaid that sells you stuff after she respawns prices for items that she sells go up.
                                                      If not then when you finish game and before going in to NG+ killing all merchants and giving there bells to Twin Maiden Husks whud be best for NG+ and beyond. You can buy items all at same place.

                                                              Given that they also cast frenzy incantations and the whole pit below the cathedral bit there appears to be some connection to the flame, but the fact that any of them are still...well lucid in the slightest suggests otherwise.
