    You could get blackrock from mining for a long time now, but this would be the first time I've heard of anyone getting pieces from turning in BODs.

    I knew in the past you could get it from mining but the last time i had gotten any was several months ago around the time with the br machine maybe I just am having a senior moment thing but sure startled me to see em also I just found out you can get increased skill gain with BR if carrying it and working skill near the black rock crystal ! not sure if this is still so but here is what it said!

    Skill Gains

    It has been reported, and confirmed, that if you try and train your skills in the area where the Black Crystal is, the same area you can mine large chunks of blackrock, your skill gain is increased.

    * South end of Ultima Online: The Second Age - the Lost Lands, east from Delucia.
    * North end of T2A - The Lost Lands, near the Ophidian Lair.

    Information about the skill gains:

    You will see the message "You are infused with the intense energy of this area" when you get a skill gain.
    While training in these areas, your skill gain can increase from 0.2 to 0.5
    Carrying blackrock while training skills has no affect. Only when training in these areas will you have the enhanced skill gain.
    Also works for GGS. Great for when your close to Grandmaster or higher.
    Best skills to train in that area: Peacemaking, Musicianship, Stealth, Hiding & of course... Mining

    Good luck staying alive in that area while trying to gain skill...


    I had no clue on this and have played many years lol this game never ceases to amaze me even now!

    If you have mining on your smith, that would account for the blackrock. Blackrock has never stopped spawning.
