    So alot of my issues with features enhancements are due to bods. I just bit the bullet and moved houses this week on GL since some space opened up near my primary house. It wasn't fun but I moved my bod vendors. All 48 of them. Why 48? Because they only hold 125 lockdowns or about 600 bods each. It took me approx 8 solid hours to complete the move between setting up vendors, moving all my crafting supplies (at least the commodity deed box helps) and moving 3k lockdowns.

    These bod holders are pretty much packed to the gills with a few exceptions. Also pictured here is some bod sorting chests (10 of them) also full. So figgure that is 58 containers averaging 500 bods each or 29,000 bods. This is just on GL. No I dont have time to manage them all. Every once in awhile I'll get inspired and get some done. I spent two weeks where my goal was completing and selling at least 2 barb kits a day. I cleared about 70 million in gold selling them at 2m each - then got bored again. It would be nice if they took less lockdowns. At least in books its 1 lockdown per 5 bods but I'd prefer a 10 or 20 to 1 ratio.

    Would I like a 'price all selected button' on the bod book? Yes.
    Would I like an alpha sort on the bod books? Yes.
    Would I like a 'dump all' option to empy a book into my pack? Yes.
    Would I like a 'load all' option to fill a book from any available bods in pack? Yes.
    Would I like a targetting cursor like Davies Locker to click on bods to add instead of dragging? Yes.
    Would I like to be able to put them in and take them out like the Scroll of Trans book without needing to pick it up? Yes.

    Not pictured here is another house I use for my primary sort - it has about 5k-7k more bods.
    This is just on GL. Lets not talk about Europa, Catskills, Sonoma and few other shards. ;-)

    Its not a matter of stocking as much as collecting. I used to actually throw bods out in the past - but now they nearly all have value since you can
    'upgrade' them for better bods. Even the cloth bods can be bribed to cloth 20's that fit into Spined Kit bods.

    Before you would pitch most low end Bone bods etc but now you can upgrade them to 20 ex barb for a barb kit for example so nearly everything has value.

    Low end bods like weapons you can turn in for chances at newer bods. Several thousand of those in the picture are actually already completed bods. I haven't gotten around to turning them in yet and in some cases - I store the completed bod because its less lockdowns than the reward. I have a book of 100 completed spined kit larges - that only takes 20 lockdowns. If I claim the kits - that 100 lockdowns. Now with combining I can combine 2/1 to get to 50 lockdowns but its still better in book form. PLus I can store the book on a vendor for no cost.

    As in my other thread - if they would let us combine runics past 100 uses - then I can turn these in and store the charges altogether.

    Same goes for pof deeds. I fill those and stuff them in a book and store on a vendor. When I need some - I peel it off the vendor and claim/use it. Would I rather we be able to combine POF so I could have a 1000 use vial? Sure. But without that - this is my solution.

    I have exactly the same situation as Theo . Exept for just one shard. I need the rewards, but I wouldnt mind spend more time mining and less sorting.. It happens people donate their whole collections when they get tired of it or get loads at IDOCs .. Take weeks to just sort. Good to hear its not just me =)

    Got what I need of rewards and the extra hit the trash for turn in points. As far as tailor BODs go. I keep ten of a BOD and extra I toss or if have time and leather fill and exchange for new BOD. Sure could use bribery to upgrade to try to fill high large set. 1 in 3 chance the other two always show up. Should of been a bribe bonus window where cost 5x more to pick what way the BOD went. PoF start taking up space lets me know I need to do some Imbuing and crafting.

    Then there is just those that need to say NO to BODs.

    Yep, exactly. I collected alot of these myself (several bod runners on GL plus used to xshard bods long ago with 3-4 players) but a fair number also came from IDOCs. Just this week a house fell and while people snagged rubble pieces, rares, etc. I grabbed a gold metal box filled with...bods.

    Back when the OSI owned houses fell in the great fall of 2011 or whatever, I came across a house with only heavy stuff left that people had left behind. Me and my trusty beetle absconded with over 60k of every ingot. It sure has come in handy to have close to a 100k of Val, Verite, Aggy ingots with the bod bribing changes.
