    Ok! so you can hand them back into the vendor and he says "Are you giving me something made of metal? Thank you... blah blah" but he wont accept the mining gloves.....

    but can you put them into a Salvage bag and change them into ingots ?? nope!

    you can put the mining gloves into the bag and get leather, so why not the other 2 ?!?!!?!?! (funny how its the reverse)

    Can that be changed ?!??

    or even better have a menu that can set what you want the vendor to keep when you drop a bod on them. Saves cluttering up your backpack when you do 30 odd bods.

    Just a suggestion [​IMG]

    I either sell them to the vendor or if it's garg axes and prospectors I keep them to dig up with.

    I wouldn't mind if they gave us some way to combine them or add the properties to other random items of clothing. Just to make it more interesting.

    Perhaps allow a tinker to unravel the gloves and add more charges to shovels picks and tools.
  3. I actually wish there was a way to add charges to these items gotten from the NPCs for BODs rather than having to throw away 100 garg pickaxes, 150 shovels, 50 prospectors tools just cause they take up so much space.

    Ya I'd got for smelting or charge transfers. A 10 to one reward upgrade trade in would be just as nice too. But please let us do something with these things.

    Be nice to smelt those ringmail gloves or leather gloves and use the resources to make ringmail/leather tunics of mining or other mining pieces. Get mining to 120 and get 100% colored ore, more gems, and double ingots smelted from ore.

    Welp ... I have sold off Garg stuff to T-hunters wanting them - for cheap.

    The "sturdy" stuff and p-tools, I do use but never have more than a couple dozen in stock at a time. Typically by the time I have 20 or so sturdy items, I also need ingots of some sort.

    Soooo, instead of burning ingots to make tinkered items, I burn the BOD rewards. I use the prospector tool only when I know that to do so would raise the ore I **really** want to get.

    If I get a surplus of these, I'll sell off if possible (real cheap again), trash barrel, or just drop them in New Haven or Minoc or somewhere.
