In Mount and Blade you can "Wait here for some time" in a castle, a city, a town (if it has a manor I think?), and a camp. In addition you can just stand around in the field and wait.

Is there a difference between these? Other than the obvious price and safety difference, of course. Are trainers more effective in a camp than when just waiting in the field for example? Do heroes heal faster in any of them?


Other than the differences you listed (price and safety), you party heals faster when waiting in a fort/town or village with a manor. The amount of experience granted from training is solely determined by the skill of the trainer and nothing else.

There is 1 (very minor) drawback to waiting in a town/fort/manor, and that is you can't open the dialog to 'take an action' and select a new book to read.

  • Yeah, I must say I find it quite annoying that you can't open up any dialogs while waiting and that you have to exit a castle to talk to companions for example. – Svish May 17 '12 at 13:13

Actually, you can still access the party dialog while inside a town/castle so that you can talk to your companions, just hit P while in the town/castle menu.
