The road towards creating your own kingdom and setting off to paint the map in your color in Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord is long and knowing where you can build the best workshops can provide much needed passive income.
But where can you find the best workshop in Bannerlord? Here's what we have found so far.
Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord Best Workshop
Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord workshops can be found in most, if not each, of the game's large towns. Simply travel to one, enter it and look around for buildings like olive presses, woodworkers, or smithies.
Next, walk to them and find one of their workers. Initiate dialogue with them and the second conversation option should involve buying the workshop in question.
After selecting the option, the worker will tell you the workshop's price. In our experience, purchase costs tend to vary between 11,000 and 15,000 denars which, in the early game, happens to be quite a bit of money.
The passive income earned from workshops in Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord can vary. To make sure you're building the best workshop, keep track of the types of resources produced in the villages controlled by the settlement you're eyeing next.
Refining the proper resource is, naturally, more profitable than picking one that's not as readily available and key to making sure you're setting up the best workshop possible.
Here are some spots worth considering when looking to build the best workshops in Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord:
- Askar -> Grain - Brewery (2 villages)
- Sanala -> Grain - Brewery (3 villages)
- Baltakhand -> Wool - Wool Weavery (1 village)
- Chaikand -> Grain - Brewery (2 villages)

As the game continues being updated during its early access stay and beyond, the economy, workshop, and map can change, which may make these options less viable over time.
