There are a few dozen merchants scattered around the world of Elden Ring. Some of them are happily sitting right next to a convenient site of grace, but others like to hang out in weird caves or cliff faces in the middle of nowhere, and which are a right pain in the rear to get to.
The thing is, some of these merchants sell essential adventuring supplies like Ballista Bolts that are hard to acquire elsewhere.
Now, when you kill a merchant in Elden Ring, they will drop a Bell Bearing, which can be turned in to the Twin Maiden Husks at Roundtable Hold, at which point the merchants inventory, becomes part of the Husks inventory. This is extremely convenient! If I murder every merchant, I can simply turn in all of their bell bearings, and now I have One Stop Shopping at Roundtable Hold! I no longer need to bounce all over the world to restock.
Is there any good reason not to do this? Will my actions have unforeseen consequences?
