View Full Version : Buying Food

10-28-2014, 02:30 AM
I'm not really sure how to get more food, keep running out, should I be using my Renown in the marketplace or just let folks die off, seems like Renown is too important to raise stats than buy food?
Any help appreciated

if you want, you can have everyone starve to death, and after they die you need to buy less food... but srsly, you should only buy food on the start of a chapter becuase the food will reset to a fixed number by the end of each chapter for some reason...

Hello Eldrane.

Renown is generally much too precious, so spending it all in one department (e.g. hero promotions) means that you're gonna be lacking in another (e.g. supplies or items). The thing is that, currently, the gameplay suffers from this "problem": Keeping the caravan population alive doesn't provide any considerable benefit, and, vice-versa, letting your people die to starvation doesn't lead to a harsh penalty.

So, to put it simply, it's generally better to spend your Renown on hero-promotions and keep only a little Renown to buy supplies when their price is low (e.g. an OK price is 1:3; the best price is 1:10 and the worst price is 1:1). I would advise not buying any items at all from Marketplaces, except maybe that +2Break item if you come across it early; you can find a lot of strong items along the journey if you make good decisions (list of items, with spoilers, here: http://bannersaga.gamepedia.com/Items )
