after defeating talos, i started to wonder, are the other mercenaries always in the world for you to come across?

or do they only show up, in order from lowest tier to highest, when you get a bounty?

if it's the latter, how do you get a bounty?
optimism is a drug, you think it'll help you, and it might feel good for a bit, but in the end... you'll just become a burnout in denial.

Seems the bigger bounty you have the higher level ones show up. So if you're a lower level some might show up you can't even kill.

I get a bounty by just going into town and start killing civilians and animals. Blowing supply silos work pretty good too

I hated them in the beggining pretty much everytime I got spotted in a fort they started showing up and would kick my butt. Now I look for them

Mercenaries will always spawn and replace the ones you've killed provided that you still have a bounty on your head.

If you have level 5 bounty, even a mercenary that's 7 levels above you may join the fun.

Easiest way to reset bounty if you're low on drachmae is doing a conquest battle at any region.
Can't we all just get along?

Mercenaries can show up in the world without a bounty. Had one show up in Athens when I didnt have a bounty. Showed up as a grey icon instead of red. Dont know the details, just that it can happen.

This means they do not target you unless you provoke them.

ok, couple more questions...

where would i go to pay off my bounty?

and what is a conquest battle? i'm still on the starting island.

are conquest battles unlimited? cause if they're limited, i'll eventually have to pay off a bounty, i imagine.

i dunno if i'll ever get a bounty... cause i've been avoiding stealing and attacking innocent people.

seems kinda stupid that ya HAVE to be evil to get a bounty... why can't enemies send mercenaries after me?

You can pay bounties from the map screen, though some parts of the story give you permanent bounties until you progress enough.

You'll be introduced to conquest battles later. They're unlimited.

I used to fear getting bounties. i kinda feel like Riddick. "Yes i ran, I had mercs on my neck, I'll always have mercs on my neck."
But now i can kill them with a single attack... so i don't care.

Once you get used to the game and combat, the mercenaries are a lot of fun. Plus, they drop some awesome gear. Just be sure to check their level on the map before randomly attacking one if you're not maxed out. My level 10 Kassandra tried to assassinate a random traveling merc who was level 45. He wasn't amused.

That and a gray icon indicates you have not "discovered" that merc. After you have discovered a merc, it'll remain white unless they are after you for a bounty.

I just go to the one town in Elis to maxx out bounties in the shortest amount of time.
