Or, will I have a wait timer. Basically I guess I'm asking if the bod timer is skill bound or character bound....
I used 0.1 skill In blacksmith to get shield deeds only and Bribe them up for powder and low-level hammer rewards.Nice. Good thinking. Saves me the trouble of filling a boat load of cloak and bandana deeds that my mules collect simply to turn in for the hopes of something better. .
I do think that collecting deeds with .1 skill still has it's uses though.
You are correct, tailor scrolls are cheap enough that I'll buy them up. At least that way I'll have the choice of how I farm bods. I figure I'll collect them all with 120 tailor and chum the low end stuff I get by buying the items and turning them in immediately.Tailor scrolls are cheap... on my shard 120 tailor scrolls go for 125k each. I accidentally got 4 of them the other day and was increasingly angry about each one...
Thanks for the great info. If you want help fine tuning your hunting techniques I'm always up for an adventure. Look me up on icq or send me a message on general chat.Accumulate enough BODs (from any source) to "exchange" for new ones using your 120 tailor, and you might be able to get the 120 tailor scrolls for others from the turn ins. 120 tailor scrolls seem to breed like bunnies when you aren't looking for them.
I inherited the account for the THB guildhouse on Lake Austin, and it had a bunch of sub-70 BOD runners on it which, after deleting some and training others up, gave me 6 Smith BOD and 5 Tailor BOD runners with 100+ skill. I've not gotten back into crafting yet (primary focus is getting my hunting reflexes back first), but when I was running them, I'd go collect the BODs for all of them and accumulate until I got 200 junk cloth BODs.
When I hit 200 or so, I'd load my main 120 Tailor onto his giant beetle, and go into town. As noted before, I'd fill the BODs using gold, then start the grind:
1. put 25 filled BODs in a bag from a book of filled BODs
2. turn in a BOD, get a new BOD (which would pop into the backpack top level with the reward)
3. continue until I turned in all 25, or hit that odd limit where you can't turn them in anymore (that is an artifact of the pre-LBR weight limits, if I remember correctly)
4. Combine cloth with UO Assist, move cloth bundles to beetle. Other rewards handled as appropriate
5. sort new BODs into 2 books; 1 for cloth to fill (checking a list for any 20 normals I might need for spined kits, and 20 Ex town crier smalls), everything else into the other book. most cloth LBODs that can't be bribed to spined kits (normal 20 4-count) or CBDs (5-part "town crier" Ex 20) get dropped to the ground, along with most footwear LBODs (other than the few that give horned kit or greater rewards)
6. Repeat steps 1-5, until all the filled BODs turned in, or no room left in the bug for cloth.
7. Pull out the BOD book of the empty cloth BODs I just got as replacements, and use a combination of buying and crafting (using the reward cloth) to fill them all, putting them into the original book for filled BODs.
8. Go back to step 1. Repeat until all you have left are non-cloth BODs and the few cloth ones you need (as in 5).
Usually, 1 trip will give me 5-10 LBODs for various leather types, and many of the low end ones will end up giving you a 120 PS.
