This work is divided into a role-playing part that goes around Arcadia’s map screen and a strategy action battle part to be performed when you encounter an enemy unit.
The battle part is a battle screen like the Musou series at first glance. However, in Arcadia, humans are very weak . In particular, the first player is oftenthat is often defeated by a single arrow. Even the weakest AKO enemies who move around in the field will be able to do so if they are surrounded by multiple people.
First, you should remember how to fight . In particular, the movement of melee weapons uses a unique system called direction of mouse + left click. If it is the first play, it is good to practice in the training center of tutorial for only 5 minutes and grasp the feeling of battle .
Also, at the beginning of , it is recommended to fight by combining one-handed weapons and shields . The shield is very easy to fight because just holding down the right-click to prevent most attacks.

At the beginning of the game, the most important thing I want to be a companion with medicine . By specifying a unit’s military doctor, you can reduce the number of deaths. It can be said that Arcadia, who has no war, is essential.
Challenge quests and arena in villages and towns
And in villages and towns, you can receive quests from local influential people. This is ideal for earning funds in the early stages because you can get rewards by achieving.
The types of quests vary widely. It seems that you will be wondering which one to do, but personally, I recommend the village quest I am looking for help by dealing with bandits. This is clear just by defeating the wild field near the village.
You can put your belongings when you defeat the enemy. In addition, the prisoner who gained after the battle is also given a quest in the village The landowner is looking for a physical worker, or if he hires it once, and then hand over it in the town quest recruitment of recruitment in a Ceylon group, further funds will be made. I can make money.

At first, only about 20 people can hire, but if you raise your clan Tier, you can hire more soldiers.
If the Tier level goes up, it will be possible to sell as mercenaries . So, if you show more success, it is not a dream to be able to be collected as a nobleman. At the time of , you will be able to take the command of a tournament where more than 100 hordes collide, or attack the castle and town.

If you taste vanilla firmly, it is recommended to introduce MOD!
By the way, in Mount & Blade II: Banner lord, various Mods like Western games are also actively made. Some Mods have large-scale additions to units and equipment, so you can enjoy different pleasures.
I personally want to play on the first lap in vanilla, but as a exception, the mod PartyscreenenHancements and Equipbestitem are especially recommended.
PartyscreenenenhanceMents is a mod that organizes the unit for soldiers and Tier. When the number of units increases, management becomes easier.
And Equipbestitem is a MOD that automatically equips the top weapons and armor from the belongings you have. Because it can be equipped automatically for companions, it is convenient when you get a large fishing loot. Both are mods that make the game comfortable, so it’s perfect for those who want to enjoy the game in a vanilla environment as much as possible!
