    Ok I havent did a bod in about 4 years, maybe longer. I found an idoc with 1000's of bods. So I got some of the book dye and now I'm trying to get them in order. How an I drop the bod in to the book without it being in my backpack. I have 1000's to to and it sucks when I cant hold them. IS there an easy way to load the books????

    Also how do you use vendors to store them all??

    Thanks Tom

    Anyone??? Give me some help if there is a way. I just spent 4 hours removing and replacing bods, and not even near half way done. Anyone know a way I can remove them without the book being in my pack?

  3. Sadly, there is no way to do it without the book you are taking it from or placing it in being in your backpack. As someone who just reorganized my BODs a few days ago, it is a huge pain.

    You can easily store the books on vendors. Make sure you press ESC to make it not for sale when it asks for the price after you drop it on the vendor. Also, do not forget to pay the vendor a good sum of gold to keep them. Nothing would be worse than going to all that work and then having it go poof because your vendor runs out of money.

    Thanks Katherine
    I dont really do bods, just got some many good ones that I might try to get a hammer. It is a pain to get them all setup so you can see whats there. Each book has over 200 of all kinds of colored, smith and tailoring bods mixed in.

    Tom, here's a suggestion.

    Over half of all tailor BODs are cloth
    Over half of all smith BODs are iron

    put a bag or backpack into your pack, open it, put one of the books you are sorting out of in it, and two empties.

    You'll now have your main pack open, and the pack inside it open. Put them side by side.

    Rename one of the empty books "iron" the other "cloth"

    Open the book to be sorted, go into the filter, select "your filter", and first select "Iron"

    This will only show the iron BODs.

    Drop ALL of them out of the book, into your backpack, until you run out of room or run out of iron bods.

    Since the other pack is open, start dragging the dropped BODs onto the "iron" BOD book.

    If there are still iron BODs in the book being sorted, go back and drop them, until none left in the original book.

    Now, go into the filter of the original book, and choose "cloth"

    Drop all the cloth BODs out, and move them into the cloth book. Repeat as necessary.

    Now that you've gotten the iron & cloth out of that book, set it aside in a container in your home, and get the next book needing sorting. Since you're already set for cloth BODs, do them, then switch to pulling out iron BODs as the second step.

    Repeat as necessary, until the cloth & iron books become too full to allow you to bring other books into your pack, or to drop out very many BODs.

    Then, you'll have to set one or the other out, when sorting into one of them.


    After you've done that for all those BOD Bookss (getting new books if you hit 500 BODs in a book), get two empties, and start sorting the now-much-emptier books for Spined and Dull Copper, in the same manner. Then, Shadow and Horned, then Copper & barbed. From Bronze on up you can start sorting into all the remaining metal types at the same time,as it's likely that several of the books will have no verite or valorite BODs.

    Yeah, thats what I have been doing. Just a pain to sort them I guess. I have over a 100 verites, and 52 valorite so far. About half way done. I cant believe someone saved all these up. Its a good thing the idoc had over 200k of each ingot too. If I plan on filling even half it will take alot of those.

    Thanks again for the info,
    Tom

    The reasons bods like this are saved is because only a few give the hammers and sewing kits getting the right ones takes a looooooong time and many many hours of sorting bashing sewing and rinse repeat over and over :sleep2:
