SP Early Game - How to get started?

Users who are viewing this thread


The tips and strategies appear to be pretty outdated, ranging from 2017 to 2020.

For instance, I tried hiring mercenaries from the Mercenary's Guild to give them maces, decent armour, and horses - that last part is now impossible until you upgrade your Hired Recruits into Hired Riders. Is the strat still the same, just that you're sitting there training for a while? I tried going against Saccar raiders - let's just say they're heavily armoured and unless you have fast cav, you're not going to defeat them.
Additionally I don't seem to be able to hire them in the 15-20 numbers range, only able to acquire 3 at a time.

--Made my way to the area with Snow Walkers, which apparently should be easy. My weapons do about 0 zero damage to them. So it seems like even basic troops take barely any damage from my starter weapons - what are you meant to start with fighting then, if even T2 random bandits are too hard?

So for those playing more recently or know of some still up to date strats for getting started in this brutal world, please help :grin:

I'd be interested in tips and strategies for the latest version of Perisno too. Everything out there seems to be for earlier versions.


Yes, it's hard to get the cash at the start.
I would avoid the Saccar area, if possible, they are fast and mounted, pain in the where.

Only reliable trade that I can think of is the Silk trade in the Elintor area. Get a loan and start trading.
Probably best to first buy at the town (not sure but I think it raises the price if start buying at the village), usually the silks are cheap at Elsinore, Lille, Galwe and surrounding villages.
Villages around Lille sell the silk even though they are not tied to the town.

Anything else is really going to hurt, LOL.


Knight at Arms
I remember in an earlier game of Perisno. Get a light crossbow and horse, run rings around snow bandits until they run out of arrows. Then start head shotting them before using your recruits on them. Took too long.

See if you can hang around a city and ask the lord for a tax quest. That'll give you cash to go hire companions.

Got to avoid those annoying knight bands in early game. Was great wiping them out in the middle game, until someone released a new update.
