We found twelve wandering nomadic merchants around Elden Ring and the Lands Between, though this excludes any special NPCs that sell other items like Patches, Rogier, Brother Coryhn, and Iji the Blacksmith. For one thing, special NPC merchants aren’t usually as straightforward as being only merchants, requiring a boss fight or dealing with very specific actions, and they are also prone to moving around – either going to the round table or even leaving it. Check the maps for where to find Merchants and read on for special items they have in stock.

Elden Ring merchants are spread all over the map, with some much more hidden than others. However, they all look alike, with only color changes in their clothes to tell them apart. Kalé at Elleh Church should give you an idea of ​​what to look for – campfires help mark them, as well as the usual mule, tufted cowls, and occasionally a few discarded boxes or bags. They’re always worth finding – their stock marks some of the main Elden Ring armor locations, or an easy way to get Elden Ring Stonesword keys.

When you find a merchant, be sure to place a pin on the map! You have a hundred to deposit in total and you will thank yourself for it later.

You’ll also find other characters who sell things to you, but tend to be more specialized than the merchants you encounter regularly, such as the wizard Rogier. Most of these peddlers, especially early in the game, will at some point make their way to the Round Table for convenience, a useful central area.
