Anyone who played or are playing oathtakers, did you find more than one oathtaker to recruit?

I've found one at the beginning of the game but haven't seen another one so far.

I've managed to find another one to recruit, but his stats were shit so I didn't do it.

I've finally gotten the event where you can recruit the Oathtaker. It's pretty much the gladiator event but with a different flavor. The dude is meh too though, sadly.

I must say, I was a bit disappointed with the origin(maybe because I was expecting too much). They're pretty much a poor man's gladiators.

Poor man's is not the word i would use considering their hiring costs when found as regular bros to hire.

A Battle Brothers Novel
From Casey Hollingshead, writer of Battle Brothers and author of the recent Battle Brothers comic, now comes the first novel set in the Battle Brothers universe: The Witch Hunter. This tale concludes the in-game story of the strange traveler who carries the Lorekeeper’s black book, as introduced in the ‘Blazing Deserts’ DLC.

Hated. Distrusted. Needed. Richter von Dagentear, a witch hunter known in legend as the Wight, traverses a realm falling headfirst into war. To survive, he will have to betray his profession’s purpose and undertake a task that goes against everything he believes in. All that stands in his way are backstabbing nobles, cruel sellswords, terrible beasts, and a mysterious traveler from another world.

Also Nobel prize in literature. Won't be worse than some books getting Nobel nowadays. Possibly better. And i'm only half-joking.

Legendsfags, I know you can recruit another Berserker on Berserker origin but I can't remember now if it's through events or in towns. Which is it?

With a Berserker start, I think there's 1% chance to get one to recruit. I don't know how it works though, could he be generated in a city which you don't visit?

There's also a small chance to get one through the Barbarian prisoner escort, even outside of the Berserker origin, I think I got one a long time ago but never again.
I'd be nice If a compatible submod increased the chance of the latter, just like Magic Origins gives you an opportunity to recruit an hexe through firstborn contracts, (more with a legendary one) even when not playing as a Hexe.

The mod adds a variety of champion types selected among the strongest available enemies (excluding Beasts). All with new names and titles! The list now includes:

⠀⋄ Assassins (Blazing Deserts)
⠀⋄ Bounty Hunters
⠀⋄ Goblin Overseer (requires an upcoming mod)
⠀⋄ Mercenaries
⠀⋄ Necrosavants
⠀⋄ Sergeants
⠀⋄ Zweihanders

Chances, as well as equipment and special abilities have all been reworked (see tables below).
The main design philosophy was to more closely match normal and named equipment type and tier. Some items were also reserved for specific enemies of southern origin or from noble armies, for example. I'm open to suggestions if you don't agree with the choices!

Update 1.5.0.11
A collection of balance changes and fixes collected since the release of the 'Of Flesh and Faith' free DLC. The console versions will receive this update in the coming weeks.

If you have a modded game, update your mods. If you encounter issues, remove your mods.

If you still encounter issues, please report them here following the instructions in the sticky post.

Changelog for 1.5.0.11
  • Added a new 'Collectors' settlement situation that increases the sell prices of beast parts and treasures.

  • Changed the relations gain/decay effect of the Negotiator to 15%, up from 10%.
  • Changed the equipment and hire costs of the Oathtaker and Anatomist backgrounds. In general, Oathtakers got a little cheaper, and Anatomists got a little more expensive.
  • Changed the daily wage of the Anatomist background to better match their statline. The Anatomists origin now has slightly higher starting funds to give them a bit more runway.
  • Changed the maximum melee defense of the Oathtaker background to be slightly higher.
  • Changed the special Oathtakers origin-specific event fight to trigger later on lower combat difficulties. There's now an option to delay the fight (with some consequence) if the player feels they aren't ready.
  • Changed the experience gain offset of the Oath of Distinction to +50%, up from +40%, and removed it from the Oath tooltip, as it was confusing players and setting wrong expectation for the oath mechanics.
  • Changed Oath of Fortification to now grant an additional flat +5 defense when shieldwalling, in addition to its current effects.
  • Changed stacks granted by the Orc Berserker Anatomist potion to 3 per hit, up from 2. The effect now caps at 15 stacks.
  • Changed the effect of the Ifrit Anatomist potion to 25 natural armor, up from 20.
  • Changed the wording of the Sword Mastery perk description to clarify the hit chance effect on Split/Swing. The actual effect remains unchanged.

  • Fixed a bug that let certain Anatomist potions drop as loot when they shouldn't have.
  • Fixed Anatomist potions being forever lost if a character who'd taken them left or died the company in an event.
  • Fixed the Direwolf Anatomist potion triggering on Riposte misses.
  • Fixed the Orc Berserker Anatomist potion triggering on each hit of the Three Headed Flail.
  • Fixed bug causing fear/hate of beasts and the Oath of Dominion traits to not work in arena fights.
  • Fixed Oath of Fortification not properly resetting the count of dead characters when repeating.
  • Fixed the reward for the special Oathtakers origin-specific event fight getting lost if the player's inventory was full.
  • Fixed issue where accepting the 'Hunting Serpents' contract could cause the game to hang under rare circumstances.
  • Fixed certain retinue members applying their effects twice.
  • Fixed various smaller issues and typos.

The Legends update is planned for early next week (16t or 17th), I can't remember the exact day but that's an official announcement.

We now have news on V16, which some of you have heard already.
@yogdog will be doing a charity stream on the 17th of May. They will have a copy of V16 which will go public after the stream ends.

https://www.twitch.tv/yogdog
After that, we'll be back to normal.
So if you want to see the V16 build, that stream is the place to be.
That's all for now.

Stay hydrated.

Edited.

I would like to try legends mods. im downloading it right now should be over in an hour os so.. i wonder how to install it with gogs version of BB?
I figured that out.. copy all contents into data folder but sadly its not working at least for me.
the game does not progress... later i found out this
https://www.reddit.com/r/BattleBrothers/comments/u5sat9/game_freeze_bb_legends/

thank you

It's probably written all over as a warning, the current Legends build isn't compatible with the latest update.

As it happens, the next compatible Legends build is due next tuesday...

You should remove script-hook, Legends already has its own version, it could generate bugs.

There's nothing to install, aside from MSU dependant submods but same as everything, you just dump the zip file in the data folder.
There's a mod settings when launching Battle Brothers with Legends + MSU.

I didn't play it but apparently, there's a bug with swifter during caravan escort missions, It'lll probably get fixed soon.

the only bug that i noticed so far is if you doing caravan mission and save game. and then savescum after bad battle outcome the caravan speed is like elder tortoise.
only solution is quit game and load
