As I mentioned in a previous FoF thread, I've made some changes to the BOD system. They're not huge, but it should make things a little more rewarding.


  • Corrected a small error that gave skilled smith's a 45% base chance to get a colored BOD instead of the intended 50% chance.
  • GM Smiths still get a 10% bonus chance for a colored BOD (60% total).
  • Elder Smiths get a 20% bonus chance for a colored BOD (70% total).
  • As I mentioned in a previous FoF thread, I've made some changes to the BOD system. They're not huge, but it should make things a little more rewarding.
  • The chances of getting a valorite BOD (once you've passed the colored BOD test), have been raised substantially.
  • There is also a short delay (10 seconds) between turning in multiple filled BODs.

1.
Blacksmithing:
o Dull Copper: 40 - 100
o Shadow: 45 - 100%
o Copper: 50 - 100%
o Bronze: 55 - 100%
o Gold: 60 - 100%
o Agapite: 65 - 100%
o Verite: 70 - 100%
o Valorite: 85 - 100%

Tailoring:
o Spined: 40 - 100%
o Horned: 45 - 100%
o Barbed: 50 -100%





This won't make it into the very next publish, but should be in the one after that.

And to those who celebrate it, have a Happy Thanksgiving! :-)

Edit: Added a few fixes to the end of the list, and changed the delay to 5 seconds.

A couple of q's please. Will talismans or ancient smith hammers which increase blacksmith/tailor skill beyond legendary affect BODs in any way? Are carpentry and fletching bugs going to get some love as well? Thank you Wilki, for these changes.

I have made new Smithy Runic Charts for the new ranges. Will knock out tailor today. I am hesitant to post them right away, because it may lead peeps to believe the changes are in.

Yes Jeremy posted an eta so you may want to add it to your charts as an NB for now.

This is part of the batch of stuff that probably won't get out til early January, due to the move. (Hate to tease you with it, sorry!)
