Spell Merchants are merchants in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. These merchants buy and sell various magical items.


Many spell merchants are usually court wizards in major cities in Skyrim. As such, they are often found within a Jarl's palace or longhouse. Other notable spell merchants are all the members of the College of Winterhold that offer training, who will sell spells from their specialized school of magic depending on the player's level.

Spell merchants usually sell their goods from around 8am to 8pm, and College professors are usually willing to sell their goods to their students all day. These merchants usually have 500 Gold to buy any items in return, and their businesses can usually be invested in with the investor perk, as with most other merchants.


Spell merchants of Skyrim usually choose to sell a wide sampling of the various magical items that can be found in Skyrim, including spell tomes, staves, robes, soul gems, and enchanted items. They will not buy enchanted weapons.

Professors in the College of Winterhold sell spell tomes related to the school that they teach. The most commonly sold items are spell tomes and soul gems.
