Find What? Where? [Banners Guide]

ESO Banners Guide

This guide is brought to you by our own @Isende

While traveling the continent of Tamriel, we often find ourselves in need of supplies. But, where to go? This is the question we ask ourselves; then we pull up our map and ponder over the small and seemingly arcane symbols. Mystic? What’s that, you ask? Do they sell anything, or are they only some form of trainer?

Below, you will find a handy guide to help you figure out “What’s your sign?” It’s a general purpose over-all guide; the pictures on the screenshots are the same icons you will find on your map as well as the banners of the crafting stations and/or vendors locations.

For most of the items on the following list, you’ll find vendors/trainers in the major cities of each faction, and sometimes they will occur in some form or another in smaller towns and villages.

This list is broken into three sections – Crafting Station/Vendors, Vendors, and Miscellaneous. All items are then listed alphabetically within their section.

    That is some nice work.
    for the EP they sometimes use the Merchant Scale banner on the Bank.
    I kid you not, in both Mournhold and Riften I have seen this.

    In Mournhold the Bank is directly behind the door with the Scale banner.
    at Riften the Bank building has the Scale banner on it.

    Stormhaven, DC :)

    I was hoping to find more of these grocers because some provisioning foods are difficult to come by.

    Excellent! Thanks!

    Great work, thanks!

    I noticed an omission though. There's a grocer I ran across in Alcaire Castle that sells food ingredients. I'm still leveling so I don't know if he's unique or not.

    Good guide! I always confuse myself between many different magus and other arcane dealers.
