*SOLVED* Need a 5K+ gold merchant.. Help
Well i got a rich people's problem: I went up to 100 smith and i made 18 dragon warhammers, then refined them. They can now be sold for 5346 gold, each.
My problem is that i cant find any merhcant with that amount of gold.
My speech is low and i picked the right part of the skill tree and not left, so it wont help me much.
I also dont want to use mods to alter stuff so dont bother offering help with mods/cheats/etc.
A solution i was thinking about was thieving guild, to master it and then merchants get ~5000 gold. Is that true?

Anyway, any help on that manner will be helpful, thanks.

No, i said each warhammer worths 5346 gold.. each. So to sell just 1, i need to find a merchant with that amount of money. A 5000 gold merchant will be ok, i dont care about losing 300 gold each hammer.

buy less expensive things from a trader till he has enough gold to buy a hammer from you, then go back afew days later and sell him the things u bought

I thought about that, but i will lose too much money unless i'll keep them for whatever.

Remember, merchants never buy your stuff at their full value.

Buying a few filled grand or black soul stones should give a merch enough gold for you to sell a hammer.

Also, aren't you at that point in the game when gold doesn't mean anything anymore? Especially since you said there's nothing you actually need to buy from merchants.

just put them pretty hammers on your wall in your homes, they will look much better there than in a merchants inventory

You've made the warhammers yourself for a bit of metal and some dragon bones, so you're NOT losing any money! Sell them for only 1000 and you're still ahead. Seriously, do the math.

Actual hammer's worth is over 11000 gold, each. They buy it for 'only' ~5300 gold.

Altho i never use these enchantment gems, i will consider this, i guess. Any specific merchant which has many of these and can buy my hammers?

Hmmm not exactly. Im still a noob in many aspects of skills, mainly magic skills. My love for smithing was here even before starting to play the game (if u know Runescape u may have a sense of idea of what im talking about).
I will still need to buy many items which arent related to weapons and armor, but this bridge is yet far from me to cross, so for now im harvesting the fruits of labor off 100 smith.

It helps if you are a merchant and an investor. But if you haven’t invested in those perks and are not going to do so, you are (pretty much) out of luck.

If you are a merchant you can sell to merchants who also train. First pay for the training and then sell your expensive items.

Similarly, I buy and use a lot of soul gems, so as a merchant I can buy soul gems from wizards and sell them weapons and armor.

I'll consider this as a troll comment.

I dunno. If you have that many dragon bones, you have to be a ways into the game.

Anyway, if you're a magic user, sell the hammers to the mage instructors at the College. They sell soul gems plus they also sell spell tomes that could get really expensive so you seed them enough gold to buy your hammers.

If you do alchemy, you can also buy the rare ingredients like daedra hearts from alchemists so they have gold to buy your stuff.

Ebony ingots (two are needed for a Dragonbone Warhammer) are rather expensive. So that only holds true if you mine Ebony ore.

Otherwise it would be simpler to sell the dragon bones.

Any thoughts about the thieving guild? I think this is the highest amount of money a merchant could have (~5000).

Also, as a fail safe, i have made a normal save just before making these hammers, so i will keep playing from there till i can figure out a way to solve this issue. Its just ridicolous how much they worth compared to other dragon items. Seriously, someone at Bethesda was drunk when he made this part. The warhammers worth even more than chestplates, which costs 5 bones to make, as opposed to 3 bones for hammer.

Does this mage buys normal armor and weapons? I will check this place now.

You'll need the Merchant perk from the Speech tree.
