Default Best Merchants in Oblivion

So, where are the merchants with the deepest pockets? Specifically, I'm looking for the ones buying armor and weapons and that have the most gold available. I hate selling an $8000 item for $1200 because that's the max gold they have to give. I have a chest filling up with high dollar items that I won't sell until I can figure out who the best merchant to sell to is.

Are there any hidden super merchants like the Creeper from Morrowind?

Sorry dude but 1200 is the most Gold anyone has. No Creepers or anything either. But, if you are an expert in Mercantile you can invest money into stores, and the money you invest will add to the store owner's money and they will have more.

Also, if you'd like to do this, just a siggestion, though. There is a guy in the Talos Plaza district of the Imperial City. Go to Dorian's House in the city. Talk to Dorian, after that kill him. You wont get a bounty. After take all his items, taking the gold last. He has 180 Gold. Click on it and it will go down to 129 Gold. It will stop there and lock, maybe a glitch. Keep clcking and your gold count will skyrocket.

If you have a computer, you should download the merchant mod at elderscrollsfiles.com. It gives you a merchant with 15k gold.

I think I shall try to find that one with the 15k gold. I have a lot of Daedric armour and stuff which is just rotting in my house because I don't want to sell if for much less than it's worth.

I couldn't find the 15k merchant mod, but I did find the Xtreme Merchant mod, and he has 65k in gold. Plus, he recharges enchanted weapons. It's a nice and easy one stop shop (right at the Arena entrance).

My only issues with him are the possible un-balancing of the game due to his being a master blade trainer, as well as him having full sets of high end armor and weapons from the very beginning. Granted, they are quite expensive and some of the armor and weapons are rather heavy, making them useless to low level characters.

btw - speaking of mini-mods, I really like the improved user interface mod that enlarges the map & inventory screens, as well as reducing the icon size so that more items show up at once.

Thanks for the links to both of them. I tried a certain merchant mod and he didn't appear. Also I looked at using a UI mod called BTmod or something, but the install was quite confusing. So thanks very much .

*Edit*
Does it remove the markers telling you where to go?

yeah, the gameplay can be affected if you use him to train or buy some of his high end stuff. but if you only recharge and sell stuff its not bad at all. besides training can be super costly, id rather hack some baddies than pay over 4k for 5 levels.

if you like those mods, you might want to check out the WCGL wilderness creatures 1.0 mod. it doesnt change gameplay except for outdoor exploration mainly and the number of spawned enemies you encounter. instead of one wolf appearing, 3 might, maybe 5 or more. its also interesting to see enemies fight eachother. i saw around 6 or 7 wolf jumping a daedroth on my way into a oblivion gate, pretty cool.
