    I am wanting to sell the spare bods i have ...ones that i cant fit into the sets of the ones i am trying to fill

    And also the junk ones that i cannot all fill by myself... beeing flooded with them :p

    Hence my Question,

    What do junk bods go for?

    What is a good price for the regular small bods for smitthy and Tailor.
    anyone maybe have a good guide ?


    oh and what do the rewards like the prospector tools/shovel/gargoly axe sell at and do they even sell or should i just dump those?

    I've seen the junk BODs go for 50 to 1000 each, which is really strange, because it seems the more they are sold in bulk, the more people want to charge.

    I charge 3k each at my home vendor for CBD & Horned runic smalls, 5k at my vendor in Luna - yet mine don't sell, and people charging 10 times as much sell theirs in Luna :confused:. MY Barbed kit smalls I typically charge 20-25k for. It got to the point that I had SO many CBD & Horned kit smalls, that I kept 3 of each BOD on my for sale vendors, 1 in each "set" book I had (waiting for a large), and ended up FILLING the rest and turning them in like they were junk BODs (and ended up doing over 300 BODs this way).

    Typically, there's been an upswing on Gargoyle pick sales, and a downturn in Prospector Tool sales, from the change to Garg picks to allow them to elevate iron-only sites to Dull Copper, without (currently) the chance for an elemental. This allows people to mine just with a gargoyle pick, until the first indication of a colored metal, then change tools to meet their needs (Keep digging as before, or make one of 3 changes - 1. use prospector tool to elevate one more step; 2. stop using the garg pick and use a normal/sturdy tool to drop one step to the natural color, or 3. use prospector tool, then switch to a normal/sturdy tool to stay at same ore type, without the chance of an elemental - or if DC, to conserve garg pick uses).

    A lot of miners that use garg picks like fish use water will pay 500-2000 per Gargoyle's Pickaxe - but it's best to NOT vendor these (or vendor 3 or 5, with contact info for bulk sales), but to ask on your shard's forum if anyone would be interested in buying them. I know a couple on my shard that go through 100+ Gargoyle's Pickaxes a week.

    I regularly see them priced for 1000-2000 gold each on LS. Personally I do not buy any because I have too many already.

    If you are looking at getting rid of some of the higher end deeds, try trading any duplicates for the smalls you are lacking. This will let you fill your large deeds more easily.

    This totally sucks, I mine with picks just for the elementals. I wondered why I was not seeing any DC ones. I thought I was just unlucky. :sad4:

    Every time I get around 500 junk BOD's I fill up a book and leave it near the smith shop in Luna.

    In other words, it has no value to me. I give it away.

    The only BODs I currently sell are BRSK Smalls and CBD Smalls. The BRSK smalls go for 30-50K (30K for Spined, 40K for Horned and Bone Barbed, and 50K for all other Barbed) and the CBD smalls go for 5K-10K.

    For low-end rewards, I hand them back to the smith I got the BOD from (Sturdy stuff, Gargoyles, and Prospector's). I throw away all +1 and +3 Gloves.

    I sell Rewards in Luna on Napa and Pacific. Here are my current prices:
    PoF's: 50K each
    +10 Ash: 25K
    +15 Ash: 50K
    +30 Ash: 500K
    +60 Ash: 5,000,000
    Agapite Hammer: 7m
    Gold Hammer: 4m
    Bronze Hammer: 150K
    Copper Hammer: 50K
    Shadow Hammer: 25K
    Valorite Anvil: 500K
    Verite Anvil: 450K
    Agapite Anvil: 400K
    Gold Anvil: 350K
    Bronze Anvil: 300K
    Copper Anvil: 250K
    Shadow Anvil: 200K
    DC Anvil: 150K
