BODs recycled/week

    I'm very curious about the norm here. I don't have as much time to play as others (I think), about 20 hrs/week. Also, I don't dedicate my time to crafting. It's arguable how much time I dedicate to crafting since "gathering leather" (and sometimes mining) also falls into adventuring/leveling. Anyhow, let's say I spend 10 hrs/week on crafting. From what I've read here it's advised to get up to recycling 100 BODs/week. I have been working towards this and the best I think I can get to is 50/week. The main issue is the resources required. I'm curious, do most people do 100/week? If so, how? Is it just that I don't have enough time(which I could live with)? Or am I missing something (usually the case)?

    At my peak, I was doing 100-200 a week.

    The last 6 months, though, I've been so caught up in doing champs, then event spawns, with my combat characters, that I've been lucky to do 100 a month (when I wasn't testing the tailor BOD numbers - I'd gotten up to a test of 2900 pulls by the time Wilki gave the correct numbers), and about stopped getting BODs from April to August (getting back into the swing of things, now).

    With two of us doing bods, we usually go threw about 500 a week. We have 6 smiths and 5 tailors. The 500 we go threw are just recycling and we still turn in proll about 40 Lbods a week. Its time consuming but its easier to just buy resources then to mine on kill all day long. Use the money from turning in bods and selling rewards to pay for your ingots.

    it's different for tailor & smith.

    Both smith & tailor start getting large BODs and colored material BODs at 70.

    But, while your chances for good BODs really don't improve over 70 for tailor, Smiths get a reduction in iron armor BODs at 110 and 120 Smith (so that, instead of 50% weapon, 25% iron armor and 25% colored armor at 70-109.9, it's 50% weapon, 5% Iron armor, and 45% colored armor).
