My Mali playthrough ended with me making 50 gold a month with several thousand in the bank at any one time. Can confirm Mali is stonking rich
Your comment looked like an ad in a wikia page!
Mansa Musa ftw
Well well well... My man Hastein gonna be paying Mali a visit pretty soon. African Vikings here we go.
It's harder than you think because you'll be made feudal, and you can't sail around the coast of West Africa, so you'll have to walk through the Sahara.
Huskarls running around in the desert is wild.😂😂😂
Its not thar wild. If east swadia is dominated by nords, they may attack the sassanids
During the 1300s, Mali was the biggest gold producer in the world and its king, Mansa Musa, is often cited as the wealthiest person in the history of the world. So yeah, Mali rich.
Fun fact, Mali didn’t so much have massive mines in that time period as much as farmers who would finish planting and then pan for gold the rest of the wet season en mass as a way to make extra money, and buy stuff from traders with it the good couple of pinches worth they’d get, though many small family mines existed all around. But with literally everyone doing some gold extraction part of the year the consolidated amount flowing into the markets of Mali and taxes of Mansa Musa was staggering.
I was actually just wondering what the best holdings are, ty
Just invade Sardinia, much easier
But less profitable. 1 silver mine vs 3 gold mines, two of which are under one duchy. There's a reason Mansa Musa has been named the richest human of all time.
Yes, but often times Mali is out of diplomatic range, depending on where you start
Sounds like you need to conquer more lands.
Ooh, I believe my wife may have a ready claim on that...
Playing as France at the moment. I guess I can start my colonial empire a few hundred years early.
I have an African roman play through I got cagliari mine to start the snowball of gold then expanded south west to get Mali now I earn 215 gold a month
Which Duchy is that
I remember randomly picking that as my starting place in a multiplayer game. That's why I was stupid rich
Scramble for Africa a few hundred years early
Niani is one of the best counties in the game for this reason.
Mansa Musa was a ruler of the Mali empire and quite literally is the richest man to ever live.
Niani is always a good one.
Just make sure not to invade the Tamil Kings
Cagliari just off coast of byzantine land in Italy
Ok François Hollande calm down here we know it's you.
