Disclaimer: I have never played Mount and Blade. The following information was gained entirely through secondary sources. When you play as a female character, your starting stats will change - you will, relative to a male character, have +1 AGI and +1 INT, but -1 STR and -1 CHA [1]. In addition, a woman of noble background will have different starting ...

The Courser is the fastest horse type in the game, with a base speed stat of 50. A horse with the Champion variant grants +4 speed, and a horse with the Spirited variant grants +2 speed. This means that a Champion Courser combines for a blistering 54 speed, whereas the standard Warhorse has a speed of 40. Source

When the horse is stopped you need to look down on the ground for the "Dismount" option to appear.

The damage potential of the lance is all dependent on the speed of the horse the faster you go and hit an enemy the more damage you do. Since the lances in a tournament are also practice lances their damage potential is rather low. There are 2 ways to deal damage with the lance, you can either couch the lance (Keep running with your horse and suddenly you ...

There is no way to replace the king with yourself, per se. However, there are two things you can do: 1) Continue to take castles and towns and always demand them to be awarded to you. Once of these times the king will refuse. At that point, you will be given a choice to revolt. Do that and all your towns/castles/villages become your own faction and you - ...

Troops that are not killed or knocked unconscious enter the next battle at a maximum health. Only yourself, heroes and NPC commanders have health outside of each battle. However if a troop is knocked unconscious, they will take some time before they are battle ready again (thus you may see your party as being 23/25 due to troops who are unable to fight)

The problem with lances is that you need to build up lots of momentum to put in a big hit. Because they are so big and unwieldy, trying to poke someone with a lance up close is equivalent of trying to tap someone with a 2x4 from inches away. You can't get that hunk of wood up to a fast enough speed to do any damage (especially to someone wearing armor). ...

As per the Mount & Blade wikia: Personal skills Personal skills are granted only the individual character. Power Strike Power Throw Power Draw Weapon Master Shield Ironflesh Athletics Riding Horse Archery Trainer (*) Persuasion (*) Trainer is a notable exception in that it stacks. Trainer grants the experience to all (valid) party members, but as a ...

While I agree that tournaments one of the fastest ways of making quick cash, you are not guaranteed to win and you also need 500+ to bet 100 each round. If you find a tournament that suits your combat style go for it. However there are other ways of making money. In one game I decide to play as a merchant, I accepted all the quests to collect taxes for ...

The maximum amount of troops on the battlefield is determined by a setting in the options menu, with a maximum of 150 total. the ratio of troops on either side is determined by the total amount in both armies and the relative tactics stat of both. For instance, with 200 solders, fighting a group of 100, with even tactics scores you would get 100 men on the ...

Yes, if you press the backspace key during battle it will pop up with what is variously called the command interface, tactical menu or backspace battle map. What this looks like and what information it displays varies between mods but in my experience it always shows: 1) A minimap showing the locations of your troops, ally troops and enemy troops in ...

Enemies don't scale level wise but they do in number. As in if you the max level you will be fighting much bigger armies then if you were level 5.

You have basically answered you question in a comment, but Yes, you cannot manage your castle because it is under siege. Screenshots (they are towns, but mechanic is the same. "Manage Castle/Town" button doesn't disappear even if all the improvements are built) Yalen without siege / Inside the city ("Manage this town." option is just above "Manage the ...

Mount and Blade Warband Napoleonic Wars is a multiplayer only module for Mount and Blade Warband, so you can easily skip that if you don't care about multiplayer. Viking Conquest does have single player and is quite a good module for the game. There are no discernible differences between the PC version and PS4 version minus the major PC modding scene. The ...

There's a thread here on TW forum that seems to have an updated chart: Post is from Nov-14-2019 which is after 2.054 (Oct-09-2019) so should apply to current version. Yellow characters are pagans Blue characters are christians green arrows means "A" likes "B" red arrows means "A" dislikes "B" note that not all arrows are bi-...

It is not possible in the default Mount and Blade: Warband. There are several mods which provide such functionality, though i think most mods, for example Floris, only have automatic distribution of loot to your heroes, not your troops. I can't think of any mod that allows full customization of troops but since there are quite a lot of mods, you might find ...

From the TaleWorlds Floris forums: The bandit leaders are never captured - they always escape after the battle. After a week or so in-game, they respawn again with followers. I've defeated bandit leaders about 5 times in battle and never captured one. source: http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php?topic=237444.0

I suggest you build an army of Saranid Mamlukes. They are excellent detergents towards Kahnid Horse Archers, because of their extreme resilience and armored horses. Make up for the lack of ranged units with some horse archers of your own though. Once you have about 20 mamlukes, the Sarranid melee horsemen, (gonna take some time, but given that Swadia's gone (...

Circumventing this limit is rather tedious and requires you to manually add more spots for the lords to stand in in the castle/city halls' configuration files. The lords stand at pre-determined spots, and when there aren't enough spots left, the rest of the lords are omitted from showing up. Exiting and re-entering the town shuffles which lords show up on ...

If you own any castles or towns I think you can put all your items in a chest in the lord's hall and all our troops in the garrison. Go unarmed with no troops with only the lords of the dead faction with you. Then you get in a battle and let yourself get defeated. Since all your items are in a chest and all your troops are in a garrison, all you should ...

Increase athletics and wear light armour so you move and attack much faster. Heavy armour is more for cavalry than infantry.

If you are the king of a faction, there are multiple ways to improve relationships. Bribe them: The first is the easiest but costly, talk to your minister and choose to send a faction a gift. Then just let time pass and your relationship with the target faction will be bumped a few points. Rescue them: Often, faction lords tend to get captured. If you ...

The only thing I can find suggests that starting age affects stats in the following way: young: str +4, agi +4 adult: str +3, agi+3, int+3, cha+3 old: int+4, cha+4 Source

Looking at the source code, the cheat menu doesn't actually allow you to attack a castle on your own. You can start a siege on your own via the cheat menu, but you will not be able to perform the actual attack. For that, you need at least 3 soldiers: ("castle_lead_attack", [ (neg|troop_is_wounded, "trp_player"), (ge, "$g_siege_method", 1), ...

Because you seem to be having a unique experience with this, I think the following things are worth looking at, just as a bit of a check list. Is anyone else having the same problem? If you use other Headphones/speakers does the problem persist. Does dropping the total volume help? (In game and in Windows Sound Manager) The above three will help you ...

At first you need to install qt5-qtbase-gui and qt5-qtbase do that with: sudo dnf install qt5-qtbase-gui sudo dnf install qt5-qtbase Also make sure you have libcurl installed, if not install that, too.

Basically try to turn 4 people attacking you all at once into 4 people attacking you one at a time. Do this by heading to the outside of the group and keep moving! My tips: As you approach try and make your first hit really count. Hold an attack position as you approach, attackers will then hold a block until you get close and then go to attack. As they ...

You were not ready for this war Just as the accepted answer tells, you decided to support claimant way too early. What do you need for it? Well, lots of things.

Get 27 in Charisma, 9 in Leadership, and read a book on Leadership to make it 10. ...
