    No such thing as luck for the higher smith rewards. I haven't heard of any change so far only the 20 exec val plate large gives val hammers and there a a few that give +60 hammers. You sure you werent mistaken? Are you comparing your results with tower of roses web site or uo bulk order deeds program?

    Odd, well i bought the BOD's for 9mil each as i wanted the hammers (cant afford to spend 25mil on a 15 use val hammer)

    seller had descriped as a Agapite hammer reward...they were 20 ex items, sure they werent Val though...it was late at night so perhaps myself and the vendor got it wrong..

    *desperate to return home from work to check the vendor*

    Interesting maybe you have something there. I might know for sure this weekend see if it changed. Though such a unannounced important change not posted or listed at all is pretty weird.

    Well, my guess is... new BOD rewards is altered by random percentage bump to bod points. Best confirmed bump is "before:+30 ash, after:valorite hammer".
    So "1000 to 1050 Ancient Smithy Hammer +30" altered to "1200 + Valorite Runic Hammer". As result, bonus can be up to 20% (or more, who knows).

    was CBD and less, new is BRSK - probably impossible
    was bear rug or 110 PS, new is CBD - probably possible
