    Does anyone know how long it takes the new price to go into effect once the finance minister changes them? Server up or 24 hours, possibly? Just need some clarification. TIA!

    I am pretty sure the changes take effect immediately. You can only change the tax rate every 24 hours. Also anything that is under the special resource system (ore, bottles, etc.) is not affected by the price changes.

    Just double checked some of the reg vendors and they did not change immediately. Wish they would, though!

    Did they change the next time they restocked? I think that is 20 minutes.

    UO site says 12 hours. Accuracy is questionable.

    Okay.. Figured a few things out over the past few days.

    - The problem with the prices not changing was due to the fact that the sigils were not on the town monoliths. We were in the process of corrupting them again and apparently prices cannot be changed during this period.

    - After the sigils were moved back to the towns, I lowered prices and they changed immediately.

    - The next day I raised prices again and they, again, changed immediately.

    - I tried to immediately set them lower again and got a message stating something along the lines of "you must wait several hours to reset prices again".

    I didn't get a chance to try again "several" hours later, but I will be testing that at some point to try and pinpoint the actual timer. Apparently there have been some changes to these timers recently, because over the past year, at least on Siege, the prices did not reset immediately. It used to take 24 hours.
