Clash of Lords 2 Guild Quests
The help window that pops up the first time you receive a quest.
There are many ways to receive quests in game, with a total of 55 to choose from throughout the world. Quests can provide a range of bonuses, including renown and morale, denars or thalers, and increases to relations with other NPCs.
Quests found in villages will reward you with improved relations and occasionally a choice between further improved relations or a reward. A population that likes you is more likely to give you better trained recruits in higher numbers. As they are only available sporadically, it is best to start questing early in the villages that give recruits you will need later in the game, such as Rhodoks, Vaegirs, and Nords. Additionally, if you own the fief, these quests raise the village's prosperity which leads to higher tax income.
- You'll have to buy a certain amount of wheat and take it back to the village. Later in the game when you gain the ability to store items in your castles, shops, and household possessions (the inventory which you acquire while having a wife), it can be helpful to stockpile a few bags of grain for quick access to quickly solve this quest.
- You'll have to buy or locate a certain number of cattle and bring them to the village. This can be very tedious because cattle can be expensive, but moreover there is patience required drive your herd back to the village. Stealing cattle is faster, but detrimental to your reputation with the village you robbed them from, unless you are a vassal, and the village belongs to a faction you are at war with.
- You will be asked to train a militia to defend the village against bandits. This can be time-consuming if your trainer skill is low. Every time you finish training some militia, you'll have to face them as a test. After you have trained about 5 villagers, the village will be attacked by bandits and you will have to help defend it.
- Occasionally Bandits will take up residence in the village and will need to be cleared out. This quest can be initiated by entering the village during the infestation or meeting a farmer in a nearby town's tavern.
- Help peasant: Within a village center, talking to random villagers will sometimes yield one who has suffered recent disaster. Giving them 300 denars will raise your reputation by 1. While this is expensive in the long run, it is almost always available in a village with poor or very poor prosperity and can sometimes be the only way to improve your standing with it.
Quests found in towns involve helping the people of the town in some way. Completing these quests will make the town's population like you more, and it will allow you to gain some denars.
The Guild Masters stand around in towns in various locations. While they are clearly visible in some towns, they can be hard to find in others. Just look for someone who is better dressed than the average townsman and who is not standing near a merchant stall.
