Merchants in Elden Ring are classified into the following: Nomadic, Isolated, Hermit, and Imprisoned. Each group has its own unique uniform, and each merchant offers a few unique items to the player as well. The isolated merchants, in particular, can be rather hard to find due to them being, well, isolated.
In fact, there’s even a secret merchant somewhere in Raya Lucaria that you might not have been able to spot if you just went through the game on a blind playthrough. Let’s find out where you can find that merchant.
How to Find the Secret Merchant in Elden Ring
To find your way to the secret merchant in Raya Lucaria, you’ll want to first head to the Liurnia of the Lakes. Then, make your way to the entrance of the academy. If you haven’t visited the place yet, you’ll find that you won’t be able to get through the barrier.
You will find a corpse just right next to the barrier. Loot it and get the map which will point you to the location of the key. The key can be looted on a corpse just west of Liurnia of the Lakes. However, it will be guarded by Glinstone Dragon Smarag. At this point, you can either kill him or avoid him entirely and just focus on getting the key.
Heading to the Merchant
Once you’ve secured the key, go through the barrier and touch the site of grace at the center. Now, on the right side after entering the barrier, you will see a path leading downward with lots of bushes around.
It will also contain a barrier, but instead of activating it, simply head straight and go all the way to the end. Along the way, you’ll encounter a handful of wolves which you can choose to kill for their loots. Or, you can just sprint through them using Torrent until you find the isolated merchant near the end of the path.
You’ll find that he sells a handful of useful items like the Fanged Imp ashes, a few stonesword keys, Fevor’s Cookbook , the Warrior class’s starting set, and some other consumables.
Terraria: How to Find Every New Critter in 1.4.4 Update
The 1.4.4 update for Terraria introduces a handful of new critters into the game that you can find in various locations.
There have been quite a few additions to the 1.4.4 update of Terraria. One of these additions is the new critters that you can find in various locations throughout the game.
In this guide, we’ll have a look at what those critters are and how you can find them.
How to Find Every New Critter in 1.4.4 Update in Terraria
There are around four new critters that were added to the game in the 1.4.4 update. They’re as follows:
The Stinkbug is a tiny, flying critter that can spawn in the Forest biome. It’s quite easy to catch using a bug net, and you can use it as bait with a 10% Bait Power. Apart from that, you can also combine it with a Platinum Broadsword in order to create the Flymeal sword at a Honey pool.
The second critter is the Toucan which is a bird that can spawn on the surface, particularly in the Jungle biome. It has very little HP and zero defense, so if you want to catch it, you need to use a bug net. If you’re not careful, you can easily kill this bird due to its low health.
You can keep it inside a Toucan Cage (combine it with a Terrarium) and use it as decoration. However, do keep in mind that the Toucan will no longer be able to get outside of the cage after that.
Cockatiels come in gray and yellow variants, and you can normally find them in the Jungle biome, the same as the Toucan. Also, they have very little health with no defense, so using a bug net to capture them is a must.
As with the Toucan, you can use them as decoration by creating a Cockatiel Cage by combining your captured Cockatiel with a Terrarium.
Lastly, we have the Macaws which share the same spawning point as the previous two birds. They also have the same stats and can be placed inside the Macaw Cage to serve as decoration.
