Bastard Bonds – How to Recruit More Party Members

Tips to Recruit More Party Members

  1. Manpower – Stronghold Upkeep = Surplus (hire extra services like merchants, blacksmith, etc.)
  2. Stronghold capacity – (band members + extra services) = Vacancy (tent icon next to your gold).
  3. You can only recruit new party members if you have enough vacancy.
  4. Recruit people by reducing their hp and make them hesitate.

Note: If you leave a map after triggering special events like Kirilo’s , Moria, etc. you’ll skip those events and special characters.

Reduce their hp to 1 and 0.5 heart, then wait till they hesitate.

  • I suggest recruiting some monsters with poisonous trait like Saurian Lizardman (Coast), or ransom an Onyx from the Ash Lord (Burnt homestead). Poison will reduce monsters’ Hp to 1 without killing them.
  • Always have a tank (Guard/Ward) in your party.
  • You can completely void magic damage by equipping magic ring (Blacksmith: Gems + Lucky ring) with respectable colors. Ex: Emerald ring for warding Rex (green magic).
  • Equip party member(Fight/Hunt) with Overwhelming trait (Paul, Galka gladiator, Matsutaka mushroom) with a Ruby ring for Pain strike curse.
  • Ransom the 2 archer centaurs on the Tiny Forest Clearing, craft a soul, and then clear the Raptor gate (Onyx ring for the dark magic casters) for the best Bow in the game.
