the weapon will have a small letter after the damage stat. eg: 24p  is twenty four piercing damage.  note that some weapons do a different type of damage if you slash or thrust with it.

Dose what kind of damage really affect anything?

How effective it is vs. armour mostly.
Piercing and blut are better vs. armour than cutting, but cutting has higher base dmg numbers. And of course, there's the addition that blunt dmg only knocks your foe unconscious instead of killing him.

Hello Everyone,

New to the site and my Warband will be here in a couple days.
I've searched for answers and can't find them but here's what I'd like to know...

1) I want the game system to be perfect for me from the beginning as I am not one who replays single player games over again...Will the vanilla game be that game or should I consider a mod from the get go?  If so which one?

2) Are the mods for this game like running whole new games (or adventures) so that perhaps my first concern is no big deal?  If it's like old school pen and paper that way, I am more thrilled than I already was (Chivalry&Sorcery anyone?)

3) Even if the mods make like new games, a system only mod which adds realism or better mechanics would be nice from the start

ANY help or suggestions are appreciated

I think you should just stick with the vanilla M&B Warband in my opinion.   Warband really is pretty much a polished version of the old mods for M&B from what I hear.

As for mods they are mostly the same as the normal game ATM, (same factions same map just different troops types mostly). Really play basic game and have a look at the mods (you can switch between mods and standard WB really easy just a matter of picking which you want)

Here's a quick question:

Who's Sergeants are considered to be "better" Rhodoks or Swadians? I would assume Rhodoks. Also, if you'd like to include their skill and proficiency numbers, all the better.

I know I could use search, but isn't the point of this to be a kind of "anti-search" thread? In addition, I'm on my mobile, and you all know that search is a pain in the ass at the best of times.

Like this:                               LVL   SH     DH    PL        CB           ARC        Throw
Swadians
Sergeant                              25    155    135   145        -              -              -          Ironflesh 3; Powerstrike 4; Shield 3; Athletics 4
Rhodoks
Sergeant                              24   130   130    130         130         130         130       Ironflesh 7; Powerstrike 5; Shield 5; Athletics 5

Here is what I could find in short:
I'm actually quite suprised over the lack of cleavers, Which Rhodok troop actually uses them?

Can I change difficulty in-game or do I have to wait until I start a new one for Campaign AI settings to take effect? I really like my current progress but I'm tired of seeing parties of 25 Swadian Knights (out of like 55 soldiers, it's absurd)? Same thing goes for other changes (damage modifiers, Battle AI, etc.), although I assume that, since they only affect battles, they can be changed and take effect in the next battle.

Using the search function is always preferable :).
