Barter with the person so its like an even trade. Sell something worth 5000 take 5000 worth of his stuff.

Every 24 hours the people get there money back. Sell some stuff until he has 0, rest 24 hours repeat until you get all $5000

Remember the more they like you the better prices you will get, Dont forget merchantile skills really help too!

Go to Caldera, in a manor there, there is a Scamp called creeper that has 5k every 24 hours and buys everything at cost. If you have an item worth more than 5k, sell it but buy back stuff to bring it down to 5k. So if you've got a 10k sword to sell, buy a 5k helm off the guy. Sleep for 24 hours then sell him back the helm.

A couple days ago I finally figured out the option "Autosave when resting". I hated selling sooo much because it would save everytime I rested for 24 hours. This changes alot of things, lol.

Also, sell to the mudcrab, hes got 10,000

Theres a mudcrab that has 10k on him some small island east of Dagon Fel. Someone posted a map pinpointing exactly where it is, but I can't seem to find the thread.

I think thats the sound the creeper makes, kinda like that sound in horror movies when someone is getting stabbed with a knife

I like that sound! Im assuming Creeper is a little grey goblin guy thingy with the tail.

I summon one all the time and he follows me around town going "Errrr.......Errrrrrr"

:D

get the icerian flight spell/scroll. Use it, and jump to the crab, you'll get there in about 30 seconds. Just make sure you cast levitate or slowfall before you hit the ground.

ok lets say u have a sword worth 10k and the creeper only has 5k sell the sword but buy 5kworth of stuff at the same time. sleep for 24hrs and then sell the 5k worth of stuff u bought from him back to him. this works with any ammount just make sure that the ammount u sell for doesnt exceed 5k.

would the sword be down to 5k

jshaudvitis
07-11-2002, 09:45 PM
ill try to explain this a lil differntly
1.take the itemo worth over 5k and press "a" to sell it
2. but items from him till the money counter on the bottem left goes down to 5k
3.then sell
4.sleep 24hrs
5.sell back the 5k worth of stuff that u bought from him

hope this is easier to understand

jshaudvitis
07-11-2002, 09:49 PM

mticha_21
07-11-2002, 09:50 PM

07-11-2002, 09:52 PM
no no no ull b gettin ur moneys worth just think about it if u sell a sword thats worth 7k and buy 2k from him the counter will say 5k then when u sell the 2k of stuff back u will have 7k so he gets the items and u get all the money u r supposed to

Well, if you want lots of money, go to Ald Sotha (northwest of Vivic). Here is some of the items I found there:

Daedric Warhammer-30k
Daedric spear-20k
Daedric tanto-14k
Daedric darts-4k each
ebony broadsword-15k
2 ebony shortswords-10k each
ebony spear-10k
ebony shield-17k
wild viperblade-4k
grand sould gem-33k
4 rings that have a constant effect of:
fortify enchant 5 points
fortify conjuration 5 points
fortify destruction 5 points
fortify unarmored 5 points
shoes of Saint Rilms-fortify pesonality and endurance 5 points as a constant effect.


Once you get those, you have to be pretty powerful, go to the talking mubcrab, and sell all these to him. You can get a big chunk of cash.

alright say i have a item worth 9k....and i wanna get my moneys worth .......i buy 5k and then sleep 24 then sell it back?

Dre
07-12-2002, 09:28 AM
Dude... its not that hard, you're over-complicating things. Listen...

You have your 9k sword. You go to a merchant with 5k gold. So.. you have sword, he has gold!

Now, sell him the sword, he'll buy it from you for 9k. Since you don't want to get ripped off, you need to bring that 9k down to 5k. So, switch to his list of stuff for sale and buy stuff for 4k. Now you are getting 9k worth of stuff for your 9k sword (5k cash, 4k of items). But the merchant has no more money now. After you sleep for 24 hrs, the merchants money will be back. Now you can sell him back the 4k of items you bought to even things out and you will have gotten your full 9k for your sword!

I'm sorry but I don't think I can explain it any clearer.. hope you get it this time.

That depends on your merchantile skills, My skill is at like 35 and i get 70%-90% face value.

And if they refuse your offer, Keep hitting A for like 3 seconds......

no the mudcrab buys from everyone full price. hes like a vanding machine more than a npc, he doeant have disposition or anything.
whatever you sell to him he will buy full price unless broken.

07-12-2002, 11:22 AM
cool. it wasnt that hard. but now you can get your moneys worth of stuff. that would suck having to sell a 220k item for 10k or whatever.
