Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord – How to Make Money (4 Basic Ways)

This guide explains 4 basic ways to make money in Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.

How to Make Money (Fast)?


So there are a few ways to earn money early on but here are some easy ways I found playing myself.

Keep in mind that everything is subject to be changed in further versions of the game. I´ll try to keep this updated

1. Questing

You may have noticed yourself already but there are a few decent quests that will net you a lot of money.

One quest requires you to return someone’s daughter. This quest will net you around 1.6k Denar and is easy to do.

-> Just head to the marked village and search for the daughter inside of the village. Press Left-Alt to easily find them.

The 2nd quest requires you to transport a herd of animals. This should be 10 to 12 animals.

Normally this quest will only net you 400 Denar but to finish the quest u only have to turn in 50% of the animals.

That means you are able to sell half of the required amount of animals which should net you at least an extra 500 Denar.

2. Trading

Trading may take you a bit to set up but what you want is around 15 – 20 troops and perhaps a few mules so you are able to transport more weight. Also, the first skill in trading which will net you 20% more for trading goods is helpful.

The next step is to find certain villages which sell trading goods. Villages are usually specialized on one trading good such as iron ore, fish, animals, salt, etc.

“Marathea” is specialized in iron ore as an example. You can buy stacks of iron ore for lower than 30 Denar sometimes and then resell that iron ore for 60+ in cities.

Keep in mind to travel a bit and check different cities. I usually try to sell the goods for twice the amount I bought them for.

3. Tournaments

Pretty obvious but tournaments are also a decent way to earn Denar.

These are held in big cities and reward you with an item if you win and Denar incase u bet money on yourself.

Keep in mind that you start with your own armor so you might want to get some better armor before you start with tournaments depending on how good you know the game. Weapons are always provided by the tournament itself.

This way you usually around 2k+ Denar per Tournament, which depends on the item obv.

4. Fighting Bandits

This is the most basic way to earn money.

It won’t earn you the most but you will level up your troops while doing so.

Sea Raider, Forest Bandits, and Mountain Bandits seem to be the best enemies for this.


In my opinion, the best way to earn money early is a combination of the 3 first mentioned. While you roam the villages you check for quests (especially the 2 mentioned ones) and when you sell your goods in cities you check for tournaments and win them.

If you want to make tournaments easier then just save your game before you go fight and reload in case you lose.
