    other day i was looking for a powerscroll.
    vender search -> comes up with 4 pages.
    hit the cheapest one (cause im Scottish!) and it waits for a second, get the 'that is no longer for sale' message.
    hit the next.
    same.
    next.
    same.
    all..... four.... pages.....

    so i just spammed on general chat and got what i needed.
    tonight log in, need a talisman for tinkering, vender search.
    same thing.

    anyone else getting this?

    I've seen this a few times, found it very strange. Chalked it up to the database not updating in a timely fashion.

    I've seen some stuff on quieter shards where rubbles and such I myself bought weeks ago are still there the each time I run that search. It's getting bad enough that every other item I try to get a map for is no longer for sale.

    Has anyone also run into the problem of getting a map, teleporting... and the vendor isn't there? I've run into this a few times, and I'm pretty sure that search is also incorrectly indexing vendors who are in the moving crate. (If only because one of the times it happened, it was actually a vendor *at my own house* and I could see that vendor inside the moving crate.)

    It's so bad that I hardly even use the in-game Vendor Search. Overall, I'd say SearchUO is still a superior service.

    scrolls and t-maps seem to be the worst
