The Black Death has been updated with a big new patch that brings a number of features and improvements into the game. Players can check out a new travelling merchant, new classes of bandits to take the fight to, more wolves to hunt, and three new locations (Bywick, Ashview and Laketown). In addition, VOIP support has been added.
Bandit chief, bandit heavies and light bandits
As the people of Mercia struggle to survive more and more turn dubious ways of making a living. The bandit threat is on the rise and they are beginning to organise themselves. Chiefs have risen, huge brutish men clad in black armour supported by heavies, guards turned rogue. Watch your step citizen...
We've made several changes to the bandits throughout the world.
- Bandit chief - Boss NPC. Best tackled in groups.
- Bandit heavies - Bandits equipped with plat armour, wear ragged guard - -outfits. Only confront alone if you're a more experienced player.
- Bandit - A medium class of bandit. Often wears leather.
- Light bandits - usually wearing little armour. Aggressive but easily dealt with. These are the bandits that have been populating the game since launch but re-balanced to reflect their role.
