Where to Get Charcoal in Bannerlord
Though charcoal can be bought from some towns in the game, it is usually randomly spawned, which makes it an unreliable way to obtain it.
The best way to get charcoal in Bannerlord is by refining hardwood into it. You can do this by following these steps:
- Enter any major town on the world map and then select the smithy option.
- In the smithy, you will need to then head over to the “Refine” tab at the top right.
- Refine hardwood into charcoal.
This can be extremely profitable at the beginning of the game as you can get a lot of hardwood in Battania for around 10 to 20 denarii a piece and then sell the charcoal for around 80 a piece.
The only problem is that you will get 1 charcoal for every 2 pieces of hardwood. Luckily, you can easily fix this by getting the Level 25 Smithing perk “Efficient Charcoal Maker,” which will get you 3 charcoal per 2 hardwood refined.
Now that you have a lot of charcoal to use, it would be best to quickly level up your Smithing skill to start making a lot of money in Bannerlord.
Smithing is by far the best way to become extremely rich in Calradia, so there is no reason to pass on this opportunity.
That’s everything you need to know about where to get charcoal in Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord!
