The "Shut up and take my money" Achievement requires that you buy one of each item from merchants. There are a lot of items on the list that my class doesn't use, and I am unfamiliar with. Is there one vendor, or a short list of vendors I can go to in order to buy one of each of these items types? Also, since I plan on just selling many of them right back since they are of no use to me - generally, where can I buy each item the cheapest?

Cheapness is based on character level and random chance. Just shop around, with the lowest character possible. –  Raven Dreamer May 17 '12 at 2:29

When I started doing this I checked vendor for white items each time I was in town to sell. Since white items costs only for a few hundred gold compared to the blues which costs over thousands. However what I found was you had to buy blue rings/necklaces. As of now I am having trouble finding a merchant that sells Spirit Stones.

Also a tip is to buy it on normal mode since those are the cheapest and you might consider buying the blue ones there if you don't want to wait.

As an added note, selling white gear and buying it back does not work :(. –  EBongo May 28 '12 at 15:55

Spirit Stones are sold by diablo.wikia.com/wiki/Vendel_the_Armorsmith –  John Arlen Jun 21 '12 at 2:45

I can confirm that Vendel the Armorsmith sells the Spirit Stones, which I finally got. I had a friend also get one from Ironsmith Maldonado, but after doing 50+ runs of him I never got one. Despite Vendel's low spawn rate, he seems the best approach. –  EBongo Jul 17 '12 at 2:31

Actually, yes, mighty weapons are sold by one of the vendors in Caldeum bazaar –  DrFish Sep 1 '12 at 19:54

You can get a mighty weapon from Kyr the weaponsmith. He appears during a random event. After passing through the Halls of Agony level 2, you will sometimes find him on the highlands passage. Complete his event and gain access to his shop, where you'll find a mighty weapon for purchase.

If you want to farm this, you might want to go to A2 and start the Evacuation of Caldeum quest. This way, you'll have four vendors all very close together that you can check one after another.

But what I did was just to check for white items every time I stopped at a vendor, and then buy and resell them, until I had almost all of the items checked off, before I started concentrating on the last few.

There's a relatively good guide for this in the comments at D3DB:

ACT 1

NEW TRISTRAM, Tashun the Miner (first vendor you see). He sells: Axe, Sword, Gloves, Boots, Chest, Waist, Legs and Shield.

NEW TRISTRAM, Arghus the Collector. He sells: Wand and Bracers.

NEW TRISTRAM, Radek the Fence. He sells: Bow, 2-Hand Crossbow, 1-Hand Crossbow and Ring.

ACT 2

HIDDEN CAMP, Silmak the Fence. He sells: Quiver, Fist Weapon, Helm, Shoulders and Neck.

CALDEUM BAZAAR, Tilnan the Collector. He sells: Dye, Staff, Spear, Mojo, Magic Source (Known as Wizard Source) and Ceremonial Dagger.

CALDEUM BAZAAR, Lugo the Miner. He sells: Dagger and Mace.

CALDEUM BAZAAR, Squirt the Peddler. She sells: Daibo and Polearm.

DAHLGUR OASIS, in the Rotting Cellar, Javad the Merchant. He sells: Spirit Stone

ACT 3

THE KEEP DEPTHS LEVEL 1, Ironsmith Aldonado. He sells: Mighty Weapon.

Note that Javad the Merchant won't always have Spirit Stones. The Wandering Tinker merchant occasionally has them. Vendel the Armorsmith usually (but not always) has them.

I think that this guide found an amulet at Silmak the Fence (Neck). Amulets and Rings are on the jewelry tab rather than the armor tab. Squirt the Peddler is also in the Hidden Camp now.
