Elden Ring: All Merchant Locations & Unique Items

In a world as vast as the Lands Between, acquiring that missing ingredient can be tedious. But, we’re here to make life easier with the locations and wares of every Merchant in Elden Ring!

Traveling salesmen setting up shop in remote locations, with only their weary steed for company. Such is the life of an Elden Ring Merchant.

Business is hardly booming, but somehow they seem to get by. Poisonous swamps and deadly cliff-faces are prime locations in the Lands Between, apparently.

But, despite to challenges of tracking them down, sometimes the items they have for sale make it worthwhile. Here’s where you can find every Merchant in Elden Ring, along with the noteworthy wares they’re selling.

And if you’d like to tackle all 51 of Elden Ring’s dungeons along the way, here’s where you can find those too!

Elden Ring Merchant Types & How Many Are There

With a few exceptions, FromSoftware breaks down the game’s 19 traveling Merchants into three types, although there is very little difference between each:

  • Nomadic
  • Isolated
  • Hermit

So, below are the locations of every Merchant in Elden Ring, listed by region. Note that we won’t be including named NPC Merchants who are likely to be involved in quests and/or change location.

Should You Kill Merchants in Elden Ring?

If you don’t want to keep traveling back and forth to each Merchant around the Lands Between, there is an easier way of purchasing their wares: kill them.

Some merciless brutality will reward you with each Merchant’s Bell Bearing, allowing their items to be bought from the Twin Maiden Husks at the Roundtable Hold.

And that’s everything you need to know about the traveling Merchants trading around the world of Elden Ring. Honest pay for honest work… but I’ll stick to Demi-God slaying.

Now you’re stocked up, it’s time to tackle some bosses. Check out our guide to every Evergaol in Elden Ring!
