    So has anyone, maybe Basara, come up with a definitive answer as to what and/or how the BOD rewards are bumped up? Is it totally random? Did they make some of the 100% chance ones into split up ratios like some already where? Is it calculated by adding a bonus based upon skill or something else?

    I'm very skilled in calculating BOD rewards based upon the point values. If it's as simple as a point bonus or something I can figure out what reward will be given. I just can't find any info on what's giving the bonus or causing the bump.

    I've been not playing much for about two years so I'm a little behind on all the current and recent crafting changes.

    Still not heard anything official, and the best we can determine is located in this post.

    Not much info, but it's a start. The most up-to-date Tailor BOD information was provided by Wilki, and is a sticky post in the Data Chest sub-forum as well.

    Thanks Basara,

    I had read that post and I realized it was fairly recent too. I was just hoping to have missed something with more infomation.

    Basically, I'm not real happy with it so far. I did read the finding of many players and the smith rewards appear to be better off. I seen that quite a few valorite hammers are being rewarded now.

    I however just turned in 20 LG Tailor BODs and the results are pretty lame. For example I turned in six LGs that previously were 100% Horned runic kit and I received only two and four 120 Tailor PSs. Like I needed more of those.

    It's pretty dumb they don't just come out and tell us what the dang new formula is instead of making us guess.

    I don't know if there is a formula, I think it's just a dice roll to determine if you get a bump and what that bump will be. I get quite a few 120 PS with my horned runic bod turn ins, however I also get the occasional barbed kit that makes up for all those PS I toss on the ground. :)

    Well, I guess it'll just take some getting used to. I did another round of 10 LGs and this time I examined the chart before picking which ones to fill. I picked LGs that previously gave a reward one level below what I was hoping for.

    I turned in four Exceptional 15 count, Spined 6pc BODs and received 2 120 PSs and 2 Barbed kits where previously it would have been 4 120 PS.

    It's funny, now that these changes have been made and I've played the BOD lotto almost since inception, I just started gathering BODs again two weeks ago and on the fifth day I think I actually received the 20 count Exc, Val Plate LG. First one ever. It seems it's much more likely to get a Val runic hammer now though due to this reward bumping. Go figure.

    Well, i just got a 2 val hammers from deeds that should have gave me a +60 hammer. Talk about a nice surprise! I didn't realize there had been a bump and came here to figure out what is going on. I don't think the bump is 20%. I got 23 gold hammers, 4 agapite, 2 verite (one unexpected), and 2 val hammers. There might have been some bumps to my ASH hammers, but i really didn't count them before i started.

    Only 3 were unexpected (the two vals and one verite). I usually do a hammer run like this about every six months (that is all the smithing i can stand to do). It felt like a 10% increase chance, but that could just be my terrible RNG hitting me yet again.

    I also got a lot of bronze hammers--- look ourt relic frags here I come!

    I don't do tailor deeds so I have nothing to share about those.
