Stop Being a Mercenary in Bannerlord

Becoming a mercenary in Bannerlord is a relatively easy feat, and ceasing to be one is even easier.

To become a mercenary, you could have talked to any of the nobles of the faction. However, to stop being a mercenary in Bannerlord, you need to speak directly to the leader of the faction.

You have to find the exact location of the leader of the faction, approach them, and select the “I wish to be released from my oath to you” option.

Since you were just a mercenary, there should be no repercussions for leaving the kingdom to fend for itself.

You will now have complete freedom to do whatever you wish and can try to become a king yourself or join another faction as a lord!

There is also the option to join the faction you are currently employed in as a vassal, which can provide you with a lot of bonuses. However, you won’t make as much money.

That’s everything you need to know about how to stop being a mercenary in Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord!
