Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord Guide
There are many ways of making profits in this game. Among them, two of the most common include setting up a workshop or a caravan. Although the latter seems more profitable yet it has some risks associated with it. Hence it is better to proceed ahead with the Bannerlord workshop. The benefits with the latter might take some time to accrue, but it is generally a safer and reliable approach.
But simply setting up a workshop won’t do much good unless you carry out detailed research concerning the population, the types of goods to sell, the location among others. So before you devote your attention to purchasing a new workshop in Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord, here are the things that you should keep in mind to maximize your profits.
Tips for a Perfect Location for your Workshop
Here is the important point to keep a check on, before setting up your workshop in any town:
Know the Basic of your Trade
It goes without saying that before setting up a workshop, make sure there are enough demand and supply of products that you would be dealing with. Otherwise, either you won’t be able to sell your products due to a lack of demand or won’t be able to manufacture goods due to a lack of resources.
Know your People
If you are selling goods of high or are of luxury in nature, then make sure you are setting up your workshop in a prosperous location. That is, the people of that town should be able to afford your products.
Setting up workshops in Prosperous Towns:
Along the obvious lines, more prosperous a town is in Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord, better well off will be its residents. This will have a direct positive influence on your workshop too. Towns like Marunath, Epicrotea, Lageta, Ortysia, and Vostrum have prosperity over 5000. Likewise, you have Margot, Diathma, Saneopa, Rothae, Zenica, Poros, Danustica, Razih, and Chaikand towns with over 4500 prosperity. So, if possible, try setting up your workshops in any of these locations.
Locations Far Off from Wars
Although there aren’t any war-free locations as such, still there are some locations that are closer to the borders and enemy territories. These towns have a greater chance of getting engaged in wars. Therefore try to avoid setting up your workshops there.
Keep a check on their Economy
Although you can’t get a hold of a town’s economic data (unless you are the owner), yet you could still make up a lot just by a normal inspection. For example, if you find beggars and villages across the town, then its probably not a safe place to invest.

Apart from that, here are some other tips that you could take note of to maximize your profit in Mount and Blade 2.
Work as a Mercenary
