Some info about the raiding mechanics. Someone please format this so it can be seen in the page.
This is about when you raid a holding, not when looting the "countryside":
- When you raid a holding, it can't be raided again for 3 years.
- The formula for the gold earned from raiding a holding is:
(tax * LOOT_TAX_MULTIPLIER) + (total building value * LOOT_BUILDING_MULTIPLIER) where:
- tax is the current base tax of the holding;
- LOOT_TAX_MULTIPLIER is 1.5
- total building value is the base building cost for the currently built buildings in the holding(before deductions from technology, etc)
- LOOT_BUILDING_MULTIPLIER is 0.02
formula: (1.5 * tax) + (0.02 * total building value)
Probability of destroying buildings/holdings:
- There is a 10% chance that a random building will be destroyed when the holding is raided.
- If the holding has LESS than 4 buildings, there is a 5% that the entire holding will be destroyed
Raiding as Vassal
I did some research and I'm pretty sure that the wiki is wrong about the conditions for raiding while a vassal.
I tried a few feudal combos with swearing fealty while being Haestinn (Nantes 867) to Briezh. The tribal feudal combos were done with Khazaria->Byzantines same timeline.
While vassal to Breton, Catholic, and Feudal Briezh, Haestinn (Norse, Germanic, Feudal) could not raid.
While vassal to Norse Catholic Briezh, Haestinn could raid.
While tribal, Jewish, and Khazar, Khazaria 867 could raid by virtue of being tribal. When vassalized to the Greek Orthodox Byzantine Emperor, they could not. When vassalized to the Norse Orthodox Byzantine Emperor, they could.
I suspect that if you can raid as an independent ruler and your liege can raid, then you will be able to raid. My console decided to be some crap, so I couldn't turn Briezh berber or change liege religion, so I wasn't able to test everything as thoroughly as I would like. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mini Snuggle (talk) 01:59, 15 June 2017 (CEST)
