    Hello all, after 12 years I have finished my crafter and I am ready to see what its all about. I have noticed that BoDs, other than being a total nightmare, are extremely time consuming. So, my question is, should I even bother with weapon/cloth BoDs? I put together a few large weapon orders and I think I got a pickaxe or something? Is there a database that shows what the end reward would be for completing the BoD? Also is there any small BoDs that are worth turning in so i dont spend the rest of my life Hunting to fill the big ones? Sorry, I am a little overwhelmed by all this!!!

    I keep the small 10 cloth and iron to turn in to try to get better BoDs. They require far less time and materials. Here is a site that has info about the rewards. Links to the left and at top change between the types. http://www.towerofroses.de/bodt-lrw.htm Rewards can automatically be bumped up "levels" due to some random factor. You can also bribe the BoD givers to try to get better BoDs to fill better orders.

    You can also save time, gold and resources by filling normal BODs via buying from NPCs.

    Blacksmiths sell most of the weapons and the iron armor pieces.
    A few of the weapons (war Fork, maybe others) can only be filled buying from a weaponsmith, not the blacksmith.
    Armorers sell all the armor pieces (even the leather ones).
    The shoes can come from the NPC that sells shoes, or have a fisher fill them with all the junk they fish up.
    Tailors have most of the cloth items. The ones they don't are body sash, bonnet, surcoat, and full apron.

    I bribe all my Normal weapon BODs until they are exceptional, then fill them. Yes it costs more ingots because more than a few end up as 20x before they go excep. I go through garg pickaxes like mad and alsways need prospectors tools. The sturdy shovels and pickaxes have no value practically. And then you get a new bod to boot.

    To me this is the only way to go, no question.
