When first building the settlement in Manor Lords, players will set down Burgage Plots. These are basic accommodations homeless settlers can move into as the approval rating of the town increases. However, these dingy little buildings can be upgraded for many perks and uses.

To upgrade the Burgage Plot in Manor Lords, players will need to obtain the title “Small Settlement” and have Four Wood available. They will also need to meet the following requirements:

  • Water Access
  • Church Access
  • Fuel Stall Supply
  • Food Stall Supply (two types of food)
  • Clothing Stall Supply

After upgrading to a Level 2 Burgage Plot, the residents of the plot can generate regional wealth, and the plot will become eligible for extensions. This includes Artisan Workshops.

How To Use The Artisan Workshop in Manor Lords

Once the Burgage Plot is at level 2, players can choose to add one of the following Artisan Workshop extensions to the building:

  • Blacksmith’s Workshop
  • Bakery Extension
  • Brewery Extension
  • Tailor’s Workshop
  • Cobbler’s Workshop
  • Joiner’s Workshop
  • Armorer’s Workshop
  • Bowyer’s Workshop

When the extension is added, all inhabitants of the Burgage Plot will become Artisans and new goods will be made depending on the different shops deployed in the settlement. This includes items like Bows, Swords, Spears, Bread, Ale, Tools, Shoes, Clothing, Armor, and more.

These upgrades are vital in building up a military, increasing the approval of the settlement, and conquering neighboring territories in Manor Lords. The additional resources also attract new settlers to the growing city. This provides a larger employable workforce, the opportunity for new buildings, and the resources to create additional Artisan Workshops.

Manor Lord is all about growth, and getting the Artisan Workshops unlocked as quickly as possible will propel players toward the total domination the game encourages you to seek out.
