    I dropped all of my shop vendors on Balhae 13 days ago. However, the inventory for said vendors is still showing up in vendor search.

    Did u try to create map? This usually refreshes the vendor carrying the item, and u must receive a message saying the item is no longer available on this vendor and will also remove from the list... Im sure the timers are not very accurate on vendor search :)

    Yes, I did that and got the message the item was no longer available. But my point is that items I had on 23 vendors that don't even exist as of almost two weeks ago are still showing up in the search results.

    Yeah the refresh rate sux, there is something so wrong going out there, just did a couple tests on europa shard...
    In addition searchuo is mixing item names together. I found a bag of sending selling for 175mill and a slither going for 5k! Not bad ill take that ;)

    It's now been over two weeks since I dropped those vendors and items they held are still showing up for sale.

    This evening it will be four weeks exactly since I emptied and dropped vendors at my house on Balhae. Today I took another house in trade on the account that owns that house, which put it in condemned status, and a little while later I traded the house to another account.

    Items from those vendors that have been gone now for four weeks are STILL showing up in vendor search!!

    It's not like Balhae is some thriving center of commerce, so I really don't understand why it is taking so long to update vendor search on this shard. It makes me wonder how many other shards have an extremely bloated vendor search database because items that are no longer even on vendors are still being included in the database.

    Five weeks and a day since I emptied the vendors and dropped them and the items they were selling are still showing up in vendor search on Balhae.

    Fifty days now since vendors were emptied and dropped and some of their former contents are still showing up in vendor search.

    It's been 70 days now since vendors were emptied and dropped on January 31, 2015. The house where the vendors were located has even been traded to a different account. And yet some of the vendors' former contents are still showing up in vendor search!

    It is now 91.5 days since I emptied and dropped vendors at my Tokuno house. And yet over 100 items those vendors were selling are still showing up in vendor search.
