Workshops in Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord can be used as a safe way to earn passive income. You can buy a Workshop on your own in any city - after a while it can start earning gold. On this page of our guide we have described how to buy a workshop and which workshop is the best. We have prepared a table from which you can find out what type of workshop is worth buying in a particular city so you can get the highest earnings. In addition, we suggest what to do when a workshop has stopped earning money. Buying a workshop was slightly changed (compared to early access) in the full version of Bannerlord 2022 - our guide takes into account all these changes.

Is it worth to buy a Workshop?

Workshop objects are used to generate passive income.

Workshop in Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord is used to earn money in a passive way - that is, you don't have to do any activities to make money after you buy it. You don't have to pay your employees or provide materials for production. The earnings are constantly fluctuating and are usually small - earning 200 gold a day is a good result. However, it is worth remembering that Workshop never brings losses. It may turn out that the Workshop will not earn anything during a particular day. But this won't strain your budget.

In other words, buying a Workshop is a safe investment. One such facility probably won't even cover your soldiers' wages. However, after a long time you will get your gold back. Of course, you can have more than one Workshop - then your earnings will increase.

For comparison - the earnings from caravans can be much higher, but running caravans is also associated with expenses. Whether your caravan makes money or not, you will have to pay for its security every day, and the first days of the caravan's operation usually involve some losses.

Best workshops

You have to decide what goods you want to produce. - Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord: How to buy workshop? - FAQ - Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord Guide
You have to decide what goods you want to produce.

It is not obvious which Workshop is the best in Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord. Earnings depend on the location of the Workshop, and more specifically on the resources that are common and cheap in a specific city. Surrounding villages have an impact on this. For example, if a Wool is produced in nearby settlements, a will be Wool Weavery will be the best choice. You must also remember that your earnings are affected by the situation in the region. If the surrounding villages are constantly under attack, you won't make much money here.

Workshop isn't earning money - what to do?

You can change the production type in your clans window by selecting the Other tab. - Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord: How to buy workshop? - FAQ - Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord Guide
You can change the production type in your clan's window by selecting the Other tab.

You can change your workshop type at any time. This is useful when the object is not earning a lot of money or its earnings are significantly dropped. You can change the production type in the clan's window - in the Other tab, click on the workshop icon.. This will show a list of all types of production. Each change of production type costs 2000 pieces of gold.

What type of workshop to choose? It depends on the situation in the region. If there is a battle near the town (or even directly in it), it is worth changing the workshop to a Forge. Forge manufactures armaments - and the demand for weapons increases during the war. In addition, you need to pay attention to the competition. If there are already workshops of a certain type in the town (this information is visible, for example, in the window for changing the type of workshop), then another such workshop is unlikely to earn well.

Remember that the workshop can also be sold (in the window for changing the type of workshop). However, treat this as a last resort option when you need quick gold, as you will receive a small amount when you sell it.
