Balance Changes

These adjustments should assist to foster stronger defensive techniques for players that favor a more defensive strategy.

Changes to Weapon Stats

The weapon stats in Mount& Blade II: Bannerlord were changed significantly in Patch 1.0.8. The development team has changed the stats of various weapons in order to achieve a better balance and to guarantee that each weapon has a distinct set of features.
