Maybe garrisoning ready-to-level bandits still works.Well, that's up to your opinion on what is and isn't worthy. But having a good party-wage perk (usuable by everyone, in almost all circumstances) replaced by a perk that can only be used by AI -- but most AI will never reach -- is objectively bad.
Removed. It was at Leadership 125, now it is gone. The bandits still have upgrade paths to noble units, so I'll see if I can get it done without a perk.
