Hi Folks

Well I was never much into Bods to be honest but after i am burning up countless numbers off Pofs I decided to get my own pofsrolleyes:
My question is: Are the following bods the only ones I can do to get pofs?

SMALL
EXCEPTIONAL
DULL COPPER
20 COUNT

SMALL
EXCEPTIONAL
SHADOW IRON
10 & 15 COUNT

SMALL
NORMAL
GOLD
20 COUNT

SMALL
NORMAL
AGAPITE
10 & 15 COUNT

Or is there some other ones I can use to get them? Since my smitty is legendary would i have a better chance at a lower skill level to get these specific bods? Thanks in advance guys!:thumbup1:

First thing to mention is, that there are two quality types of pof-bods: one have a 20% chance for a pof and the others have a 90% chance to reward you with a pof. I havent checked your list but you have left out the large bods that can yield a pof. (You should at least include the large bods with a 90% chance for a pof.)
If you want to have a better look, yo might try out the tower of roses website for them.
Prepare to spend a lot time into bods. Only a small number yields pofs and it takes time to get 'enough' of them. Bigeest problem (for me) is getting enough ingots/resaources to fill my bods. (But i dont like to buy from scriptors and therefore mine my own ingots. That really takes some time.)
Since you want exceptional coloured bods, I would say, the higher you smithing skill is the better for you.

Those are just the 90% chance smalls.

10 & 15 EX DC smalls, and 20 Normal Bronze smalls, & 10 & 15 Normal Gold smalls, all have a 20% chance of powder.

I fill them all.

Your best chance for these is with a legendary Smith (as at legendary, you get 50% weapons BODs, 45% colored armor BODs, and only 5% Iron armor BODs - a smith 70-109.9 is 50/25/25).

10, 15 & 20 EX Polearm & Ringmail Iron larges have Powder chances (90% for the 20-count, 20% for the other two counts).

20 normal Fencing Large has a 20% powder chance.


For colored larges, DC & Shadow Ringmail larges have a powder chance equal to Exceptional small of the same type (10 & 15 DC 20%, 20 DC, 10 & 15 shadow 90%). Only worth doing if you're drowning in ingots with no EX smalls to do.
