=) I rarely if every farm bone chips for that reason alone I can get chips from any mob..the weapons comes from Greigs End and don't ask me I forgot the name of it atm.
I guess you could BUY meat and use the spell to convert it to chips that way. also =)...Good luck and have fun

Scythe of Sundering and that is a seksy, seksy piece of equipment. I've been on the fence about maybe creating a necro, and I think you just helped me decide =]
Soâ€¦ Unless Npcs start selling them all the timeâ€¦
These remain a great way for newbies to make some money in the bazaar. You can safely ignore much of the argument on pricing youâ€™ll find; itâ€™s largely outdated. The only thing you shouldnâ€™t ignore is what they go for on the server you play on.
On my server, they are shockingly unavailable quite often. Which is sad because players still need themâ€¦ and especially so because I see a lot of newbies trying to sell other things no one is ever going want to buy. Yet here is something they can easily get hold of that still sells nicely, but it doesnâ€™t seem to occur to most of them to even try. Thereâ€™s nothing sadder too than spotting a newbie selling these for under a plat. Except maybe when I see veterans selling them for a paltry few gold too as some kind of miss-guided public service or something. Few players need the charity of ultra-cheap bone chipsâ€¦ but itâ€™s still very hard for newbies to make plat and itâ€™s sad to see established players sabotaging an important newbie market so they can feel good about themselves. Thatâ€™s just the way I see things I guessâ€¦
I donâ€™t often put these up, but when I do occasionally find myself with an excess to sell off, they donâ€™t usually sit around too long. Some days ofc they donâ€™t move outâ€¦ but Weekend and Raid nights you can often unload a few stacks.
Yes, theyâ€™re just bone chips but donâ€™t sell yourself short. True, Npc venders sell these for practically nothingâ€¦ but they arenâ€™t the reliable source you can be. So you really shouldnâ€™t be shy about charging the same 100-500 per stack I see them turn over for on my server.
Diversification is important, the more different types of things you sell the more likely you are to make sales on any given day, but even so, you should always try to sell bone chips in full stacks. It may sound odd at first but the more you have the more they (each one) are worth. People donâ€™t hit the bazaar to buy just a couple chips. No need to put up too many stacks at a time, Iâ€™m sure, but People do come to the baz to re-supply and stock-up and donâ€™t want to have to think about running back again for weeks or months. If you can, make sure you have enough chips, enough stacks, to make their trip worth while. Start with a few stacks maybe and see how they move.
If no one is selling them on your server try selling mid range, say 3plat each, then adjust up or down depending on how fast they move for you. Give it a few 6-8 hour sessions if you can before you decide, donâ€™t panic and start lowering prices too soon, unless ofc competition shows up and makes it clear youâ€™ll have to. If there are other sellers, then it depends on how many they have too. If they are selling large stacks of nearly 100 or more then match their price. If they only have a few, you can safely ignore them and price yours higher if you like. Take my word for it, a guy who wants 1, 2, 300 bone chips isnâ€™t going to bother stopping to buy from the guy with just 23â€¦ heâ€™s going to come right for your full stack even if it is a little more expensive.
Be careful about undercutting your competition. When selling this type of thing, high stacking commodities that are pretty steadily in demand, you are usually best off preserving prices, given the choice, than driving prices down. Even if you only want to sell one stack you will likely have to remain up for a day or two, thatâ€™s a long time for your competition to notice youâ€™ve under-cut their price and turn around and do the same to you. So in the end you havenâ€™t sold your stack a moment sooner and now youâ€™ve given up a nice bit of your profit. Itâ€™s an even bigger disaster if you want to keep selling bone chips long-term.
That said, if prices do dropâ€¦ if that old supply and demand equation comes out against youâ€¦ thereâ€™s little you can do then but keep selling at the new lower price. Markets swing up and down all the time, and if you can manage it, your usually better off in the long run if you can swing with â€˜em.
Well, hope at least some of that was helpful to someone.

On Sleeper at Bone Rings SK.
walking? sure. while Luclin is my home, and, at 65 just about anything aggro'ing me on the way to Acrylia Caverns is toast, even so, i don't want to zone into:
taxi, taxi, taxi, ah, a druid thank you very much. 400 plat, while steep, isn't denting my purse.
it has more to do with convience than anything--rather than farming silks, one can be off raiding with their guild or grouping for AA/XP. same with bonechips.
so, don't judge folks from your lower level perspective until you've walked a few levels in their boots.
making plat--legitimately--gets way easier with levels. zones like acrylia caverns have mobs dropping a commidity that folks pay for, acrylia, plus the grimlings drop filth covered weapons that sell for 200+ plat a piece. there's also old world zones like nurga, charasis, chardok, where drops still bazaar for ok prices--or tribute. plus mobs drop plat + change and they're easily mowed through while still giving xp/aa at 65. =)
there are folks who can make quite a bit just leveling from 1-10--rat tails sold to vendors, bonechips sold in bazaar (though to be honest, i've never had bone chips sell on my trader no matter where i price them), and vendor diving and then bazaaring finds.
also, tradeskilling for convience. celestial essence has a low trivial, all the components are found in pok for cheap, and, most tradeskillers will pay for someone else to wreck their wrists making the making the stuff. can't charge obscene prices, but a few stacks can make you some plat.
sorry for coming across a bit caustic, i see now the question was asked in all candour.
good hunting and stay safe out there Storm.
Now, answer me why anyone, even a desperate necro, would spend anymore than 25p on bone chips? if you ask me, it makes absolutely no sense considering if you're bored enough you could just farm em.
Why would anyone get pissed off when they come across something, anything, at a price they donâ€™t like? I can understand puzzled, amused, disappointed, maybe a little annoyed, (stress on â€˜littleâ€™) but actual anger? I mean, Iâ€™ve overheard people talking about training people to get even.
Even for what? Is everyone obligated to sell them whatever they want at whatever price they want? How far off is that from newbies that figure other players owe them free plat and equipment? Donâ€™t like a price? Ignore it. Pretend itâ€™s just not thereâ€¦ If nothing else, itâ€™ll be better for your health that wayâ€¦ If itâ€™s truly unreasonable then everyone else will ignore it too, no harm done. The guy should figure things out eventually.
Sure, we all get disappointed when we drag ourselves into the bazaar and find we canâ€™t afford what we want. But itâ€™s a market place not a charity and there is nothing stopping any of us from turning around and doing whatever the trader did to get the thing for ourselves. Far worse to my mind, is to drag myself to the bazaar and not be able to find what I need at any price at all. To not even have the option of throwing some plat at a problemâ€¦
The last time a trader really saved my butt, I canâ€™t even remember what it was I neededâ€¦ some one little thing for a quest. Nothing special, but I just couldnâ€™t get it to drop. I spent the better part of two weeks searching Allaâ€¦ grinding one mob-type after anotherâ€¦ And every night before I shut down Iâ€™d check the bazaarâ€¦ just in caseâ€¦ â€˜till finallyâ€¦ There it was, whatever it was, just waiting for me. Beautiful! I would of hugged & kissed him and sung his praises for just having the thing up at all. I canâ€™t remember what it was but I do remember it was just 50plat, where I was prepared to give him 2000 or moreâ€¦ if he hadnâ€™t been afk I would have made him take it all even if he didnâ€™t want it. People could have reasonably argued that such a low lvl, supposedly common drop should have been priced at 5, 15 plat tops, but not 50. But to the right personâ€¦ me in that caseâ€¦ it was worth much more than the trader even thought to ask.
Maybe what really pisses people off half the time is not that the trader doesnâ€™t know the value of what heâ€™s selling. Maybe itâ€™s that he really Does know itâ€™s value, but the buyer was hoping he wouldnâ€™t. If 'my' trader in shining armour had wanted 5k or 50k, I might have been tempted in either case, such was the state I was in by that time.
Anyway, I donâ€™t know about 25p for a bone chipâ€¦ I guess my reaction would more likely be laughter and a, â€œGood Luck Pall.â€ But the 1-5p standard price I see is pretty darn reasonable under the right circumstances. Value is subjective, itâ€™s a given that we all arenâ€™t going to agree on what it is, or price either. But whatever it is, itâ€™s nothing to get upset about.
(and the conversation continues)
Amazing since there were 1000 for sale at 5g per in the bazaar.
also, for those that do the bone-chip quests to level their alts, please think about posting specific stats such as this...
At lvl 13, I took 16 crushbone shoulderpads to Kaladim and turned them in.
I am a Dwarven Paladin.
Each shoulderpad gave me 6% exp! (6 blue ticks) I raised almost the entire level off of this.
*Note* the belts, when turned in, give 1% (1 blue tick) at this level.
Gunlok regarded me as Amiable. Just a suggestion. Since so many people do this quest, if there are those of you out there who will post your own results, we can compare differences to determine how quest exp works.
For example, if a lvl 10 paladin Dwarf does it, and gets 9%, that would be good to know.
If a lvl 12 paladin who has poor faction with Gunlok does the quest and gets 2%, that would be VERY good to know.
If a lvl 12 paladin ELF does it and gets 3%, that would be VERY good to know. (racial modifier to exp reward)
If a lvl 12 dwarf FIGHTER does it and gets 12%, that would be good to know (class bonus modifier.)
Be sure and post your Class, Race, Level, and Faction with Gunlok.
It is fairly safe to assume that once the research is done for this quest's experience, the rest of the questing experience for other quests works on exactly the same premise.
(fyi - turning in 4 bone chips at this level/Class/Race/Amiable to Kaladim Pally GM is worth only 1/2%)
For the level range you get xp for this quest I personally don't think it is of significant negative impact.
Looks like another money maker for people just starting out has been squashed just like spiderling silks...
UPDATE: By looking up the mob instead of the item, was able to ascertain that these are most probably the bones needed for the monk yellow headband. They all dropped from "a putrid skeleton" there at the undead camp in SK. They won't help ya in Kaladim.

I made the rounds in Neriak and picked up from the vendors 9 stacks of bone chips.
Since I need and use them I was in no great hurry to sell them so I went to bazaar selling my spiderling silks at 2p a pop and I put a price of 7g 7s 7c on the bone chips. Sold out in minutes. Thats 15p a stack. I have since done this 4 times and I never keep them long.
In one day I made over 800p on chips and silks. Of course I do have my own hunting grounds for silks and I will advise as to where when I am done. Don't need the competition just yet. But I assure you that I have found a spot where the spiderlings just cover the ground. Seriously I am unable to kill them fast enough. I can gather about 200 silks in under an hour.
Anyone know if this is indeed the case?

Undead are equally kos to good and evil races/classes. They are basically neutral
in that they want to kill everyone.
The faction hits depend on who the quest is from. The Xelha east freeport dismal rage quest raises naughty factions while lowering good. Meanwhile the dwarven paladin guild quest raises good factions. Both use bone chips.
Krosar Shadowflame - 105 Necro
Rasork - 105 Druid
Imacatlol - 105 Bard
Yaldax Toknight - 105 Rogue
Savi Yorr - 105 Paladin
The decaying skels are scowling in some zones too, for example Nektolos Forest.
Unless I am mistaken, decaying skels are undead.
