What are you paying for junk small BODs for turn-in?

    All the low-end small BODs I've had on my vendors were bought up ages ago. I quit even accepting them long ago.

    If I took them and sold them, how much are people paying for them?

    0 you can find these on the ground I'm assuming you mean iron bods if I need these I log in with one of my toons with .1 smithing and and get one that way in my opinion the whole crafting system in uo is a joke with so many vet players nobody needs things like this anymore I remember the day when you could make a decent living and skill gains just hanging at forge doing repairs or making items for people I remember 1miilion in bank was a lot now that's nothing

    With the turn-in and exchange system a lot of players actually do fill and turn in a lot of these BODs.

    I don't have the time to do this but I do collect a lot of BODs. I simply have not been keeping these ones for a long time now. I sold out of all these type of BODs on my vendors a long time ago.

    Recently, however, I've had some requests for them. If I was to start taking them again and sell them in books of say 100, how much are players paying for them.

    I'd guess around 250-500gp per Iron sBOD (125K-250K for a full BOD book). The rest aren't worth anything as far as I know, so I usually just give them away or throw them away.

    What I throw away:
    Normal DC, Shadow, Copper, and Bronze
    Normal Gold 10-15 except Plate. Normal 20 LBODs except Plate
    Normal Agapite 20 except Plate.
    Normal Verite singles (helms and Shields)
    Exceptional 10-15 DC. All DC LBODS
    Exceptional 20 Shadow, except plate. All LBODs except 20 Plate.
    Exceptional Copper except plate
    Exceptional Bronze except chain and plate
    Exceptional Gold 10 and 20 singles
    Exceptional Agapite 10 singles
    Exceptional Verite 20 singles

    Even with the change to runics I just don't have enough space to store all the BODs or the time to fill them, so I usually just put them all into a book and sell it on a vendor for whatever default price pops up.

    Yeah that's pretty much exactly what I throw away as well.

    Along with the junk ones for turn-in I've been wondering about the market for gargoyles picks and prospector's tools. With the changes to resource spawning are miners buying these tools now?

    I don't even bother. They wouldn't be worth enough even to place them on a vendor.
     
  7. I throw away bods with rewards for blacksmith power scrolls less than +20 and many of the iron bods that take more ingots and any colored bods that get tools or gloves. I save everything else except if I have many more than I can fill in a reasonable length of time.
