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 BannerlordIf 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.
Update: I then purchased a Smithy that, after a few days, is currently making +825 per day. There’s definitely value here but you will need to experiment with what Workshops work best in what areas.
