    Getting a Vendor with 11,500/12,500 Gold
    Introduction
    Hello and welcome to my guide to get a super high gold vendor, who's gold stays at 11,500 which resets back to this every 48 hours (in-game time, not real time)
    also I will note, he is quite a bit more tight, when it comes to buying, for instance, selling some daedric gauntlets to him, he will buy for 846, as were selling to the blacksmith in whiterun will buy for 1132, but it just means you can sell mass amounts of items, without having to run around everywhere, this is also why i recommend maxing Haggling.
    Requirements
    70 Speech - this is to buy the Investment perk
    Here is a link to Stones Guide on Speech, its amazingly fast:
    Guide how to get 100 speech fast efficient
    Recommended
    Haggling - 0,20,40,60, 80 Speech - this just means you will get more profit for your items (extra 20% per level)
    Merchant - 50 Speech - lets you sell any item to any merchant (you still cant sell stolen items them though)
    Fence - 90 Speech - Lets you sell Stolen items
    Master Trader - 100 Speech - this will max out his gold at 12,500 per 48 hours
    All of these perks are in the same line, so it would take 6(or 10 depending on if you max Haggle or not) to get Master Trader.
    The Guide
    Fast Travel to Riverwood
    Then enter the store "Riverwood Trader" talk to Lucan Valerius and say you want to invest in his store
    as soon as you do this, he will perminantly have 11,500-12,500 gold, which resets every 48 hours
    I hope this guide helps you out and you be rich beyond your wildest dreams :L

    Is this an actual glitch in the stats of the perks / certain trader, or is it just the clever combination of said perks that pushes his limits that high?

    his Original gold is around 700, even with maxed perks he would only have 2200(1,000 master trader|500 investment), not 12,500.

    so it HAS to be a glitch, no other trader i have invested in has raised there gold more than 500.

    Ahh! Gotcha, I haven't gotten speech very high (above 50) nor invested in any of those perks so I didn't know the "max" the vendors would have. Nice find!

    Very true, does that acheivement take into consideration lifetime gold earned, or you need a lump sum of 100k in your inventory to get it? The latter I suppose...

    you have to have 100k in your inventory, my lifetime gold earnings is 168,149, and my Most gold Carried is 52,356(what i have on me right now)

    very good explanation of the Riverwood trader glitch, I have been informing people of this for quite some time. Glad someone decided to perpetuate it with a guide.
