Two-Handed

Bannerlord Vigor Perks: Two-Handed

This perk tree provides opportunities to enhance damage with two-handed axes, maces, and swords fundamentally. However, it also allows specialisation for melee combat in general, with buffs to combination attack damage, raiding party speed and character movement speed, increased chance to knock down foes and negate their defences, and the ability to increase garrison size or reduce wage cost for garrisons. The weakness of this build is that you won’t be able to improve shield use, leaving you vulnerable to ranged attacks.
