Caravans in Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord provide automatic trading routes for income generation. In this guide we will tell you all about how to create your Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord caravan. Because while there’s nothing complicated about creating a caravan, sometimes it can be difficult to find the right craftsman if you don’t know where to look.
Many mechanisms related to the system of caravans in the game are still unknown, but we will tell you everything we know.
At the moment there is no way to interact with the caravan after its creation. You cannot control the stock that it sells, the prices it sells at, or the places it goes. It is now a simple process to buy a Caravan and just let it do its job.
How to create your caravan in Mount & Blade 2
Choose a place to follow It is not clear at this time how this affects the Caravan. It is best to choose somewhere deep in the territory, as the frontline cities may be captured or besieged – the end of trade. Any major city works, cities with workshops and taverns. Once in town, you can choose someone to talk to or find while walking around the city.
You need to talk to a Craftsman, someone with a craft. For example, here I spoke to Caribos Carpenter. If they have a “name” and “profession,” they can get you into a caravan. Just talk to them and ask them to form a caravan in town. It costs you about 15,000 dinars. You also need a companion who will travel nearby and defend the caravan.
At the moment the caravan can operate from -200 to -400 per day. After a few weeks in the game it starts to decline and make a profit, but it is a very slow. I would suggest creating an alternative safe before investing in the caravan.
