Why did my crafter's fame decay?

    I was making a suit of armor and noticed that the lord title had disappeared from my crafted by. This made my crafted by look really stupid.

    How does fame decay on a crafter that doesn't die?

    It decays over time. A famous someone who doesn't do much of note to stay famous fades into the background.

    My Crafters are in the same boat. I've got to stop buying my barbed leather and take them out hunting dragons again. The "Great' one had was history a long time before my recent six month break.

    You can turn in Bods to keep the fame up...

    Is there a chart that says which bods give how much amount of fame?

    Amber: not sure where that page got its information, but it's not only wrong, but laughably wrong. By some chance is this a carryover from around Publish 16 that no one got around to updating? I sent the correct info to the people updating the content pages 2 years ago.

    Here's the correct information from the Craftsman's Data Chest (FAQ subforum). BOD FAME

    1. Take the point value of a BOD, and divide by 50 (round down).
    2. Square that number.

    That gives you the Fame a BOD gives.

    The lowest BOD that gives fame are 20 count iron/cloth/leather normals, that give 1 point each. (1^2 = 1). Normal 10 & 15 counts are worth ZERO.

    Exceptional is worth 200 points for smith, 100 points for tailor, so a 10 or 15 count exceptional weapon would be 16 points (210 or 225)/50, rounded down, is 4.
    4^2 = 16.
    The same level of BOD for a Tailor would only be worth 4 points (110 or 125)/50 (rounded down), then squared.

    For special materials, Dull Copper is 200, and point values go up 50 each step. Tailor special leathers start at 50 for spined, also going up 50 per type.

    Larges each have their own point values.
    Smith
    • Polearm or Ringmail: 200 points
    • 6-part weapon or Chainmail: 300 points
    • Fencing (5-part): 350 points
    • Platemail: 400 points
    Tailor
    • 4-part: 300 points
    • 5-part: 400 points
    • 6-part: 500 points
    So the most you'll get from a Tailor BOD is 256 Fame (6-part Exceptional Barbed 20-count Large), while a Valorite exceptional 20-count Platemail Large would give 576.

    Also note that, unlike fame from combat, there's no diminishing returns - so a BOD worth 256 fame gives 256 fame, regardless if you're fresh from sacrificing fame to the virtue, or at Glorious Lord already.

    That should have been me, but I have no recollection of the event. My apologies. The page Amber has found is on the old site, and well out of date. We appear not to have the information on the new wordpress site. I will rectify that situation stat.

    Thanks for the correction Basara. I'm going to delete that post so it doesn't cause confusion down the road. I'm sure there are others like me that just go to the first post that has the info and not read beyond. :eek:

    Ha Ha, now the confusion is who is Amber and what page is Basara referring to.............. you need to get to the end to have that clarified, after scrolling up to see what you missed of course !

    IIRC, I remember mentioning the data when we were talking about the process of updating the BOD calculator to the new site - it might have been during a skype conversation, and got lost in the traffic.

    Since it can be gotten through the numbers already being run through the BOD reward calculator, next time we have to tweak it, we might want to have the calculators output the fame. But I wouldn't worry about it until we have to update that code for something else.

    Thank you Petra Fyde for working so hard to try to keep every single little thing updated. It's not like you could possibly have anything else to do with your time :heart:
