Since the advent of the Bulk Order Deed (BOD) system in UO, blacksmiths all over Britannia have been collecting, trading, and filling BOD’s. If you spend any time participating in the BOD system, you will undoubtedly accumulate some BOD’s that you don’t need. When it comes time to sell your extra BOD’s, a price guide can be helpful in preparing your deeds for sale.

Due to the random manner in which deeds are distributed by the BOD system, and the subsequent rarity of the high-end deeds, lucky BOD collectors can bring in significant sums of gold for sought-after deeds. Existing BOD price guides tend to favor the profitability of BOD sales specialists, and not necessarily crafters participating in the BOD system. From a crafter’s perspective, paying many hundreds of thousands of gold pieces for a single small deed is often considered outrageous.

For this reason, UOCraft has devised a “kinder, gentler” BOD pricing scheme. This scheme is not based solely on the value of the deed’s reward. Our philosophy is that crafters complete BOD’s for the purpose of earning the associated rewards – not for selling those rewards. Therefore, the selling prices of the rewards are mostly irrelevant (and thus discrediting the philosophy that the sum of all deed prices should equal a percentage of the reward’s retail value). The reward value pricing scheme certainly has its place in the Britannian economy; UOCraft simply offers a crafter-friendly alternative.

The most expensive deed in UOCraft’s suggested smithy BOD price guide is under 250,000gp, as compared to upwards of three quarters of a million gold pieces in other guides. We at UOCraft encourage you to use our more crafter-friendly price guide if your playstyle is that of a crafter – that is, you collect and fill BOD’s for the fun in doing so, and for the purpose of earning and using the rewards. There is no wrong in selling BOD’s for profit. The truth is, though, that any deed sale – be it for 50 gp or 50,000 gp – is purely profit, as no in-game resources are used in the “creation” of a BOD. Smiths receive deeds free of charge. Some may argue that the cost of GM’ing (or higher) the blacksmithy skill is considered an expense in gathering the best BOD’s, but our stance is that the skill training expense is paid back quite nicely over time from the profits of selling your GM-crafted goods and your spare (reasonably priced) bulk order deeds.

Key for BOD’s:

  • Weapon BOD’s include axes, bladed, and bashing weapons. Polearms include halberds and bardiches.
  • Armor BOD’s are classified as ringmail, chainmail, and plate suits. “Other” includes shields, female plate tunics, and helmets (except the plate helm).
  • N = Normal, E = Exceptional
  • If no number follows the N or E classification, the price applies to all quantities. 10/15 applies to quantities of 10 or 15, and 20 applies to quantities of 20.

  • Armor BOD’s
