Buy the best type of Bannerlord workshop and find the most profitable location with the help of this guide to Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord.

Making money is essential for success of your campaign in Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord. The more money you make, the better it is for all aspects of your game. This guide will help you make your Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord workshops profitable over time, which is the best passive income strategy in the game.

Workshops bring more and more money as time passes and your clan level rises. So don't worry: if your early earnings at workshops are smaller than expected, they will significantly increase in time.

Purchase a Workshop

To make money, you need to invest. The best investment in Bannerlord is workshops of several kinds. Some are more profitable than others, but that also depends on their location and position within the city.

In any case, follow these steps to purchase your first workshop:

  1. Arrive at any city on the map
  2. In the city menu, choose "Take a walk around the town center"
  3. Hold the "Alt" key while walking around (highlights workshops)
  4. Talk to any Shop Worker
  5. Select "I would like to buy the workshop"
  6. Confirm purchase

Workshops aren't cheap and will cost you around 15.000 denars. But it's totally worth it for longterm passive income.

Most Profitable Workshops

There are 10 different types of workshops in Bannerlord. Some are better than others. You will have to choose the type of workshop either during the purchase process or in the clan menu.

The best types of workshops are:

  • Wood Workshop
  • Smithy
  • Silversmith

The location of the workshop plays a huge role in the amount of earnings it provides. This is how you should distribute them for maximum profit:

  • Dunglanys (Wood Workshop): 4000-5000 denars per day
  • Lageta (Wood Workshop): 3000 denars per day
  • Makeb (Smithy): 1300-1500 denars per day

This kind of income will not be available right away, so you will have to wait for about a week or two before each workshop at these given cities starts producing such amounts of money.

At first, you will be allowed to purchase only one shop, but as your clan level grows, you will be permitted to purchase your second and third workshops.
