How To Start A Caravan In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Start A Caravan In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Caravans provide automatic trade routes for income. In this guide on How To Start A Caravan In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord we explain the process of starting your first caravan as it can be difficult tracking down the right artisan NPC’s if you don’t know where to look.

A lot of the mechanics surrounding the Caravan system in the game are still unknown. There does not appear to be any way to interact with the Caravan. You cannot control the stock it takes, the prices it sells at, or the locations it travels to. Currently it’s a simple process of buying the Caravan and just letting it do its thing. We’ll update this as we progress

How To Start A Caravan In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

Select a location. It’s currently unclear how much this influences the Caravan. It’s best to choose somewhere deep into a territory as frontline towns may be captured or under siege – stopping trade. Any large town works, towns with Workshops and Taverns. Once you reach the town you can select someone to speak to or find them while you are taking a walk in the town.

You need to speak to an Artisan, someone with a craft. For example, here I spoke with Caribos the Carpenter. As long as they have “name” “profession”, they should be able to start you up a caravan. Simply speak with them and ask to form a caravan in the town. It costs you around 15,000 Denar. You also need a companion who will travel alongside and protect the caravan.

At the moment, it appears the caravan can cost -200 to -400 per day to function. After a few in-game weeks it does begin to drop in cost and turn a profit but it’s a very slow burn. I would suggest, before investing in a caravan, that you create an alternative save.

How To Learn Disciplinarian Perk In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Learn Disciplinarian Perk In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
There are many useful perks to learn. This guide on How To Learn Disciplinarian Perk In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord focuses on one particular perk that allows you to bolster your arsenal of troops through the capturing and training of bandits and other mercenaries.

After every battle that you win, there’s a chance you will take captives. These prisoners have two main uses. Prisoners can be sold but they can also be recruited. Most of the time, it’s likely you will be selling the weaker units you capture, especially those that join your army at Tier 1 through Tier 3. In the latter stages of the game the higher tiered units are vital for victory so don’t hold on to the weaker enemies for too long. However, the strong captives are worth training.

How To Learn Disciplinarian Perk In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

Most of your captives will join you eventually, after a set period of time, but one particular group requires more if you want to upgrade their units. Bandit units have two main trees. They can progress down Bandit lines, which are usually weaker, or they can be trained to become a proper unit. However, they are used to the bandit lifestyle and don’t take orders very well. As such you need to have the Disciplinarian perk in order to transfer a Bandit unit to a proper unit.

This perk can be found in the Leadership tree. You must get Leadership to level 125 and then choose the Disciplinarian perk from the skill tree. That is the only way you can train bandits to become proper units within your army.

Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Give The Banner To Istiana Or Arzagos

Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Give The Banner To Istiana Or Arzagos
After finding the 10 Nobles, you have a tough decision to make. This guide for Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Give The Banner To Istiana Or Arzagos goes over the two different options you have when you have constructed the Dragon Banner and are given the choice on who to side with.

This is part of the main quest line of M&B II Bannerlord. First you’re tasked with tracking down 10 Nobles to give information on a battle from history. Then you must aid some NPC’s to take down camps so that you can collect the pieces of the Dragon Banner and make it whole once more. Once the Dragon Banner has all three pieces, it is complete and you have a choice of returning to Istiana or Arzagos. Ultimately, the decision is whether or not you want to help the Empire flourish, or destroy it.

If You Choose Istiana

If you decide to return to Istiana she will give you two choices. You can either decide to support an existing faction or you can decide to create your own faction. I don’t understand why you would support another when you can make your own, so that’s the path I chose.

If You Choose Arzagos

If you choose to side with Arzagos, the objectives and choices are much of the same. You will be required to Create a non-imperial kingdom or support a non-imperial Kingdom. The goals and objectives are identical, it’s just whether or not you decide to aid the imperial side or destroy it.

We’ll be sure to check back soon with updates as we explore down both paths to see what other changes it influences.

How To Join A Kingdom In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Join A Kingdom In Mount And Blade II Bannerlord
Joining a kingdom in Mount and Blade 2 is a good way to earn some extra money and get to better troops. Check out this guide to find out how to join a kingdom in Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord. You will be able to fight with bigger armies quicker if you do this.

How To Join A Kingdom In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

You might have to complete the main mission “Rebuild your Clan” to gain enough influence to join a kingdom. If you want to join a kingdom, find a castle in the area and speak to the lord inside. If there is no lord, try a different castle. When you get to a castle lord, tell him that you wish to fight for the kingdom. They will offer you a mercenary contract and pay you for each battle you win in their favor. This also allows you to join up on armies in the area that are of the same faction. You can join a kingdom mid war and follow the army around netting you good exp, loot, and prisoners. Be wary of raiding villages though, sometimes your companion members get whiny about it. Killing the garrison is fine, its looting after you have beaten them that gets your companions upset.

When you join a kingdom you also take on the enemies of that kingdom. So if they are at war, you also join that war. This means you will be hunted if you are in the enemies lands and you cannot use the villages/shops anymore in the enemy area. If you click onto an allies army, you can join up with them and follow them around. It does still take your food, and the allies will take food if they are starving, but moving as a large unit means more protection. You can also donate troops to the garrisons of castles in the kingdom you have joined.

How To Buy A Workshop In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Buy A Workshop In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Buying your own shop is an expensive task. In this guide on How To Buy A Workshop In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord we explain how to buy your very own shop that can be transformed into a number of things such as a Blacksmith, a Brewery, a Wine Press, there’s a lot of options if you have the cash to back it up.

We’re still fresh to the real estate market of Mount & Blade II Bannerlord so we’re a little unsure of the value of picking up Workshops and such yet. They are very expensive, usually ranging from 12,000 – 15,000, which is a lot of money during the earlier stages of the game. It’s unclear what aspects of the game are in Early Access and what aspects are yet to come, so it may be a good idea to create a backup save on a different file before taking the plunge.

How To Buy A Workshop In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

If you have the money, buying a Workshop is simple. Head to a large town, one with a Tavern and the other special locations like the Arena. Choose to take a walk around the town. Once you’re in the town, hold Left Alt and look for Workshops. There’s usually at least 3-4 in a town. Once you’re inside a Workshop, speak with a Worker. This is where you have the option to purchase the Workshop. You’re given a price and then once purchased, you can select which Workshop you want to create.

I chose to build a Brewery for my first Workshop. It provided me with 21 income per day. I was unable to find a way of increasing or improving those numbers. Obviously over a very long period of time and with a lot of Workshops, it would be great but if you’re only planning on playing for the short haul, I’d probably avoid this feature for now.

Where To Find Nobles In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
The Neretzes’s Folly quests asks you to seek 10 Nobles. In this guide on Where To Find Nobles In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord we break down the different methods you’ll need to use to complete this quest, a quest that has you exploring huge parts of the map tracking down Noble Lords.

Firstly, it’s best to mention that this is not a short quest. Even if you ignore everything else and focus entirely on completing this quest, it can take some time. There’s a lot of guess work, a lot of luck, and a lot of traveling. Nobles are special characters that, when found, will give you additional information to complete the Neretzes’s Folly quest.

Where To Find Nobles In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

Where To Find Nobles
When you are exploring the world finding Companions, upgrading troops, buying supplies, look out for Noble characters. If you’re very lucky, you will see a blue ! icon near the Noble characters party. This indicates that they are a Noble with the information you seek. They are quite rare to bump into but if you see one, track it down at all costs, then speak with the Noble to complete 1 part of the 10 different Nobles.

The best method is visiting Castles. When you visit a Castle you can ask the guard to open the gates, they usually do and it’s free. You can then request an audience in the Lords Room. If there are Nobles here, you will see them on the World Map as shown above. Then, you can go inside and speak with the Noble to get the information you need. There’s a good chance that the Noble you are looking for is not home. They are often out exploring, gathering supplies, trading, or in one instance, the guy I needed to speak with was held captive by bandits. When speaking with the Noble they will tell you who to speak with for the information you need. The name will be in blue. Click the blue name to find out details, such as last known location.

Where To Find Nobles

This is where the challenge comes in. You’ll have to track down the Noble and ask the information. Then, find another Castle with a Noble and repeat the process. That’s how you find Nobles.

Tired of chasing enemies around the world map? In this guide we explain How To Increase World Map Speed In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Guide as right from the very start, even mounted, you will struggle to catch looters and other fast-moving enemies when out in the open plains.

Firstly, terrain is hugely important. Every terrain impacts speed, either negatively or positively. Certain traits, such as your Culture choice, also impacts terrain and speed. While it is possible to increase your overall speed, adapting your speed to the terrain is something else entirely.

How To Find Hiding People In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Increase World Map Speed In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Guide
The easiest way to improve your world map speed is to buy horses. These must be horses, not mules. While mounts can be equipped on your main character and your companion, they cannot be equipped on units unless the unit requires horses for an upgrade. However, if you have additional horses in your inventory, your troops will use them for transport. This increases your movement speed. Horses can be very expensive so it’s not ideal but if you’ve got some spare change kicking around, it’s a good investment to speed up time traveling and hunting down targets.

The other method is through Scouting, a skill in the Cunning Tree. Check your character tab and highlight Scouting. If you invest some Focus Points into Scouting it can learn abilities that increase your party speed during the day and during the night, further increasing the bonus provided by horses. If we discover other means of increasing your over world speed, we’ll be sure to update the guide so check back soon for updates.

Upgrade Requires Horse Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Guide

Upgrade Requires Horse Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Guide
How can you give units horses for upgrades? This Upgrade Requires Horse Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Guide talks about the different unit upgrades that require horses and what you must do in order to upgrade these units to the next tier, introducing mounted combat as the units new specialty.

You can only directly equip horses in two ways. You can equip a horse to yourself to use in combat and exploration and you can equip one to a Companion. You cannot give basic units, or equip them with, a horse of any type. If a unit requires a horse to upgrade, you need to have a specific horse in your inventory. This is consumed when the unit is upgraded, giving them the horse as a mount for their new tier of gear.

Upgrade Requires Horse Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Guide

I’m unsure if it’s the same across all factions but the Khazuit Nomads, for example, require the Desert Horse to upgrade into the next tier when it says “Upgrade requires horse”. It’s very likely other factions have similar restrictions but without playing them all, I cannot be certain. So if you’re looking to upgrade the Nomad units, check for the desert horses.

Certain horses do have types. The cheaper, more basic horses, are just no type. The more advanced, more specialized horses are Horses and War Horses. So, if you’re playing a different faction, just head to a nearby town, save the game, and buy one of each horse to see which horse is required for the upgrade. That should be enough to upgrade any units that require a horse.

How To Recruit Prisoners In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Recruit Prisoners In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Prisoners can be sold but they do have another purpose. This guide explains How To Recruit Prisoners In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord as the mechanic involved in recruiting your captives is a little more complicated than regular recruitment, where you just walk up to a town or village and buy new soldiers.

Whenever you participate and win a battle in Mount & Blade II Bannerlord, there’s a small chance that you will take prisoners. Prisoners can be any one of the single units in the fight, including everything from a peasant infantry to a highly trained cavalry unit. As such, taking prisoners is both a good choice for higher income and also for improving your army without having to upgrade soldiers all the way to top tier units.

How To Recruit Prisoners In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

Once you have taken a Prisoner, check the Party menu. Here you will see a list of all of the units in your party. At the beginning of the game, you’re very limited. You cannot carry more soldiers until you increase your party limit. However, later in the game, you’ll often find you have a lot of space for new soldiers and prisoners are a great source of new troops.

Click the Prisoner you want to recruit in the Party tab. It will give you the name of the unit, how many you have and sometimes, a small icon with an arrow. This icon shows that you can recruit the prisoner into your army. However, they are not all immediately available.

Think of it as breaking their spirit. At first, they do not want to betray their previous allegiances. However, as time passes, more and more units will be willing to defect. So, if you want to recruit a prisoner that is not yet available, just keep them with you. Over time they will join your cause.

How To Increase Party Size In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

How To Increase Party Size In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
A bigger party size means more troops and bigger battles. This guide on How To Increase Party Size In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord tells you how you can increase your party size so that you’re able to carry a lot more troops in your army, alongside your Companions and other useful military tools.

Whatever your stage of progress, it is vital that you continue to invest in your army. Whether you are recruiting new units, upgrading units, or finding new gear for your Companion, each contributes to your overall prestige and your ability to face the challenges that lay ahead. One could argue that no single one of these elements is as vital as Party Size.

How To Increase Party Size In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

Each unit in your army takes up part of your Party Size. For example, if you have a Party Size of 22, the most troops you can carry with you at any one time is 22. As such, you will struggle to fight much bigger armies or even similar sized armies if they have more skilled and valuable troops.

Increasing your Party Size limit is easy but slow. It’s tied to the Quartermaster ability which is part of the Steward skill in the Intelligence tree. Open your character panel with C and highlight Steward. Then, press the I icon near your characters portrait. This will explain what the Steward skill does, particularly the Quartermaster part. To level this skill up, ensure that you always have food for your soldiers. It’s best to have as many varieties of food as possible. This not only improves morale but levels the skill up faster.

And that’s How To Increase Party Size In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord.
