Post news RSS Troops, Armor and Weapons

A mix of previews, general musings and a quick status report.

Posted by on

One of the things everyones been clamoring for has been more troop diversity.

3.0 pictures

Lo and behold, it is finally here.

In 3.0 there will be three kinds of troops:

Light – counts as 1

Medium – counts as 2

Heavy – counts as 3

And every faction will have a setup based on those values.

However, every faction only has 5 points to spend, so an army setup might look like this:


Heavy Infantry

Light Horse

Light Ranged

Or:

Light Infantry

Medium Ranged

Medium Horse

Or:

Heavy Infantry

Medium Ranged


Heavy has higher skills, better weapons and armor than Medium, which has better than Light.


Besides this, you can check the changelog to see what other updates have occured.

Interesting! What might some of the factions have?

What about unique units recruited from special areas?

I agree, those unique units added so much flavor, especially when they were taken from the lore.

Sounds great! this way you can specialize regions. Like go to Westerlands for Heavy Cavalry, to the Vale for heavy infantry, however balancing the factions will be hard...

"like he owns you and explanation" Is that English? I believe It's "like he owes you an explanation"
But he is right, stop asking the damn question, it will come out when it comes out.

Thanks Cozur, looks great!

With House Forrester being introduced will you please make the Forrester banner available as a player option in the banner selection menu? There are so many great player character backgrounds and options that are left open for a player to base a character background off of.

Ooh i cant wait for the sweet update. All those pretty pictures driving me GOT-crazy! I hope there will be some other gameplay changes, although i cant really think of anything really important to add, just minor fixes and balance i guess.
And PLEEEASE make durable lances, at least a couple of them! Like in the old warband.
And i wish the game allowed sub-modding mods, that would allow such freedom of customization of gameplay :(

Please just tell me the Wildlings, Targs, and Dothraki go back to taking a settlement when they first invade.
Sorry to beat it into the ground, I just hate that they're gone so fast in the game now.

Hey! I don't want to take up too much time, just wanted to say that I love the work that you're doing, especially with some of the limits the game itself places on you. Definitely loving the fine eye for detail lore-wise.
I know you've addressed this before, but I think it would be incredible to add whitewalkers to the mod. It would provide an underlying motive to not only establish yourself in a position of power, but also to unite to try and fight off the Northern invasion. They could have armies that grew very quickly, mass amounts of light infantry - that sort of thing.
Just thought I'd throw the idea out there despite potential triteness.
Best of luck!

I must say, in version 2.2 some quests like the sticks and stones and a few others are bugged. So far playing this for a few years this has been a defining mod for Warband.
I have experienced better game dynamics with each version but in the end cool, neat, nostalgia things keep disappearing. One thing to mention is how the throne room in King's Landing was being used for gathering lords and ladies and many castles and cities had original, new rooms etc. Why get rid of good things? Also, why change quests that were fun and worked 100% of the time for the bugged 2.2 version with added small differences that make no difference in the game lore or the quest? Looking forward to playing 3.0 with the new troops although I love the troops now. New quests for unique items would be nice.

Many weeks/ hours of enjoyment but
are the Dothraki under-powered?

Thanks for all your hard work.
