Guide to Buy and Sell



Introduction



This is not meant to be a comprehensive guide to trading though I might make one of those someday. This is meant to be a quick and easy list of trade goods and their price range. To gather information for this price list I just road around to different towns and villages looking for the lowest and highest buy price for any good I could find. This guide is not perfect but it is a starting point and it has been useful to me when it comes to finding the right goods to buy or sell and where to buy or sell them.

Trade Good Advice



At this stage I can make the following recommendations when it comes to trade goods:

  • Dates, Fur, Iron Ore, Leather, Oil, Pottery, Silver Ore, Tools, Velvet, and Wine seem to be the best goods to trade as they have the widest price range and so can in theory be sold for much more than you paid for them.
  • For the most part I would avoid trading food items because there just isn't much money in them. However it might not be a bad idea to buy Beer if you can find it cheap because it can be a nice supplemental trade item and can keep your party morale high.
  • Buy horses, especially Steppe Horses. Not only do they help carry your trade goods but they can sell for quite a lot after you leave Khuzait lands. Think of horses as a trade good that increases your speed.
  • Buy livestock. While a lot of herd animals can slow you down a little bit they do NOT add to your carrying capacity and so you really can bring an unlimited number of cows, sheep, and hogs. Not only can they sell for high prices (especially cows) but they are a mobile food source for your men when they get hungry.

Observations and Conclusions



So far when it comes to trade in Mount & Blade Bannerlord I have the following observations that I want to make:

  • The trading system in Bannerlord seems so much better than the one in Warband. It makes much more logical sense from what I can see. Plus the ability to hover over a trade good and see nearby towns with low buying price and high selling price makes trading easier than ever.
  • For the most part the Bannerlord trade system appears to follow the basic laws of supply and demand. If a town has a lot of something the price is usually relatively low. The reverse is also true though each good seems have a base price (you probably aren't going to ever see Flax selling for 3 figures for example).
  • You can often find cheap prices at villages. Look at what the village produces by hovering your mouse over it on the campaign map. Chances are you can find that good and related goods at relatively low prices. This is not always the case though.
  • If you really want to trade I recommend Khuzait troops. This is because they can be turned into relatively cheap cavalry at a low level and a party of cavalry can greatly increase your party's movement speed on the campaign map. This allows you to get to towns faster so your trade information is still good when you get there. You can also outrun anything you don't want to fight.
