Is there an upper tier limit to prisoners "converting" to your troops?

Users who are viewing this thread


Just wondering what the mechanic is for prisoners becoming available to join your company. I have had numerous prisoners convert and I find it a very useful "recruitment" technique! However it seems that higher level prisoners don't convert.

I have some Tier 6 Elite Cataphracts that are not converting. What factors influence this? Is it Player character stats, number of prisoners, prisoner tier, etc? I know it takes a certain amount of battle experience and time but what other factors are involved? If tier 6 prisoners never convert then they are just taking up space and I should ransom them instead. I just don't want to ransom these guys if I have a way to incorporate them into my own troops!

Thanks for any input!
Tier 5/6 do not gain compliance currently. There are mods to fix this if you look for other bug reports.

Thanks for the reply

I was wondering if that was the case. Pretty sure that some of the Tier 5's had converted but I may be mistaken. I will keep a closer watch on the tier 5 prisoners and remove all the 6's for the moment. Pity they would be a nice addition!!
I dragged a Vlandian Sharpshooter and Sargent around for a whole month and they never became recruitable. I figured that tier 5 troops couldn't be recruited as prisoner. I sold them for 600 denars instead.
