Wiki - Bulk Order Deeds
Bulk order deeds (commonly abbreviated BOD) are a system in which crafters can get orders from NPCs and fill them for rewards.
Collecting Bulk Order Deeds
Players may collect Bulk Orders from many npc's. Blacksmiths, Weaponsmiths, and Armorers for Blacksmithy etc... In order to get a BOD, you need a minimum of .1 in the required skill for that BOD. NPCs will allow a cache of up to 3 bulk order deeds for players, one every 6 hours. The system will “cache” up to 18 hours worth of BOD give outs. Players may claim all 3 deeds in quick succession. Turning in a BOD adds a new deed to the cache (up to 3).
* Example: Log in after 18 hours and receive 3 deeds
* Example: Receive 3 deeds, then turn in 3 filled deeds, and immediately receive 3 new deeds because turning one in resets your timer and adds one to your cache.

The Bulk Order Gump
To bring up a BOD's gump, double click on it. Here players will see all the information about the bulk order, including the point reward, gold reward, the number of what item to be made and any special requirements.
Click on the Supply button and then on an item to add it into the BOD. In this case, clicking on ordinary bronze shields will remove the item from the players pack and add one to the total by Bronze Shield. There is also the option to click on a bag. Doing so will add all of the appropriate items in that bag to the BOD. For security, the main pack may not be targeted in this way.
There are 2 types of BODs: Small and Large.
Small BODs will request a number (10, 15, or 20) of an item and a material type (if applicable)
They require you make only one item, and can be turned in as soon as you decide to fill them. They can also be saved to add into Large BODs.
To fill a large BOD, you must fill them with the matching small BODs. Finding all the required small BODs to fill larges is the grind of the system.
Apple Crab (15)
Hummer Lobster (15)
Shovel Nose Lobster (15)
This BOD would require you to get a 15 piece apple crab order, 15 piece hummer lobster order, and a 15 piece shovel nose lobster small order. You would then fill those 3 small BODs and once completed add into the large.
Filling Small BOD vs Large:
Small BODs are great to use to train up skills. They won’t give as good of rewards or as much gold as large.
All twelve Bulk Order Systems use the new ‘banking’ system. You can choose to either spend your points immediately or save the points and bank them for a large reward. Please note, if you decide to spend them immediately, whatever points you don’t use on a purchase will be wasted. If you decide to bank points, you only get a fraction of the amount of points you would get if you decided to turn it in and redeem the points immediately. Small BODs bank 2% of their point value and Large bank 20%.
The benefit of banking is purchasing items that are large and a long term goal. Banking is meant to be used if you are saving for a high end item. If you are just looking to buy something small and have a good enough BOD to buy the item with the points received from it, then that is a better option. With the new banking system, it requires planning ahead. You also receive gold, City Loyalty, and Merchant Coins for filling BODs.
