    Use them mainly when running multiple dungeons or trials in a row and don’t feel like going back to town.

    Keep in mind the merchants don’t repair and the bankers only access your bank. No guild banks or stores.

    Nope. Don't see the value until Banker has guild bank / guild store access.

    Would then be ace to have in a guild hall to make it a hub etc

    Early day before i had max mount slots etc etc perhaps if have found both handy but not for 10k for half a job

    I use both of them all the time. It's easier than having to go to a main town when you need the bank or vendor. They really come in handy when running dungeons as all group members can use your's if they don't have their own.

    My Capital One Visa is all I need.

    I'd probably go for the vendor if he allowed me to repair my gear, though.

    My bags are full sometimes but it is ok to just travel to a city or find a wandering merchant. Selling is not the problem, it is rather about decon items. Cant do that outside of a city/town.

    I only use the banker because it is easy to get rid of stuff when your full up. I would like to be able to access the guild to but it doesn't bother me a lot to be honest.

    I don't have the merchant because I really dislike that I can not repair my armour also I don't know if there is a difference in the amount of money you get for your sales as is the case with the fence.

    And I never use the fence because they give not the same amount of money. Which really pisses me of.

    The banker is a real quality of life improvement. It can help you empty your inventory if you're in a dungeon or the wilderness, it helps with crafting writs (if you don't have ESO+ bag), it makes a lot more locations convenient bases for doing and handing in crafting writs by removing the need for the bank to be near the crafting stations...

    I don't see the point of the merchant.

    My merchant is one of the best things I ever bought. Nuzimah accompanies me everywhere, from the wilds of Tamriel to the depths of the darkest dungeon - fearless and with a shield skill I would give my eye teeth to have.

    This is because I am a bit of a hoader with inventory management problems - also I play pve AND pvp so end up with a lot of siege equipment lurking in my bag.

    Recently bought the cute cat banker, and while not as useful out in the wilds as usually at max level, do have in my homes and do use when sorting stuff out / transferring gear between characters.

    So in my opinion, both worth it, but the merchant better if can only afford one.

    It’s all utterly ridiculous.

    For those that are saying they need to go to town to decon items - you do know that there are crafting stations out in the wilds? There are at least 3 to an area - they are the named set stations but you can still decon items there.

    I use both for nearly everyday. They make life in ESO much more easier. I don't have to go back to town.

    However I do wish ZOS allowed us to repair and use guild store from them.

    I've considered buying the banker, but with 200 inventory slots per character and only about 15 full when they head out it takes a long time to fill up their inventory so I'd only need it occasionally (often I've completed a few quests and circled back to town before filling it up) and it just doesn't seem worth the price.

    I'd never buy the merchant because I send any weapons, armour or jewellery I don't need to my crafter to deconstruct so I only sell the junk items, and I only get about 3-4 of those (stacked up) at a time.

    Personally I find the merchant's untility very lacking, so if you're only planning on getting one right now I'd definitely go for the banker. Especially if you have a lot of alts. Makes shifting items and money a breeze!

    The banker is more useful to me since I can put stuff I want to sell and grind up in the bank and completely empty my inventory of anything that builds up while adventuring. The banker's limits are that he cannot access guild banks and will not summon into Cyrodiil.

    The merchant is less useful since 'to sell' stuff out in the field can just be placed in the bank. The merchant's limits are that she cannot repair and will not summon into Cyrodiil.

    I've had ESO+ for over 3 years and, as my crowns gradually built up to where 5k was manageable, I got the banker. Then, as my crowns built up again, I got the merchant.

    I'm happy with both. In practice, my biggest complaint is that the merchant cannot repair.

    Both. Banker more so. Having the mobile banker alone saves me time each and every time I do writs, to pull out the provisioning and alchemy writs, and to deposit the rewards. I do writs on 36 characters. I estimate between 15 - 30 minutes a day saved. Well worth it.

    It's great to put them in your house if you run a guild. Very convenient for your members.
