Hello this is my first time posting. Wasn't sure if I should write this in the Tanner's section. I've been trying to find Bone Scales for weeks in the tanners ward. Which ward is it in? Cant repair this stupid Bone Harness without it.

thanks in advance!

Short answer: Yes, it's in the tanner's wards that they should be sold.

Long answer: It's made by goldsmiths (like most bone products, if not all), it's pretty easy to do (goldsmith15). The problem is, not many goldsmiths15+ will bother gathering the mats to make them, especially since 2 bonechip + 2 soiled femurs + 11 wind shards is worth WAY more than the bonescales would.

11 wind shards @ 300 each = 3300
2 bone chips @ 36 each (NPC) = 72
2 soiled femurs @ 144 each (NPC) = 288 (Wards: 2 soiled femurs @ 1000 each = 2000)

How much do people pay for BoneScales? 3k on average.

Now, I don't think these kind of numbers are going to entice any goldsmith 20+ to make them and sell them in the tanner's wards (where they can't sell many of their products), so your best bet are goldsmith who are skilling up on them and who want to get most of their skilling up fees back. Sadly, most goldsmiths who stumble upon soiled femurs will turn each of them into bone armillas (goldsmith15 also) and make 800 gil at the NPC instead.

Your best bet is to find the mats, stack them to 12 or so, and have a goldsmith make you 6 bone scales so you're good for a while.

Or maybe wear some other armor if you can't make your own bone scales.

Thanks for the fast reply. I'm already rank 20 and wearing some bronze armor. I just wanna sell the darn thing! I even damaged it a bit and got repaired by npc but forgot they only repair a small percentage of it..which is dumb. And you cant sell it unless %100 no damage done. I thought about ranking up goldsmith to 15 for the heck of it. But that seems kinda pointless. We'll see i'll take your advice and go to the goldsmith guild and see if anyone there is willing to make some scales.

One synth now give 12 scales. Reason people don't sell them because people who buy them usually are very cheap, wanting the whole repair for 500 gil, or nobody use Bone Scale Mail since r14 to r18 can be gotten in a few hours.
