    Yeah, the in game search has been really unreliable as of late. I will say that if you keep trying sometimes you get results. However, who knows how accurate those results are with all the bugs currently in the system. Not to point out the obvious, but to point out the obvious; I really wish they would release something that works.

    Ill say it again, Releasing an expansion with all the current problems/bugs is like a third world country building a water park in the middle of a 10 year drought.

    Even sader when educated placed like Califonia keeps building water parks when facing one of the most severe droughts on record.

    I emptied and took down all of my vendors on Balhae on January 30, 2015. The house finally fell last week. As of today, 156 days later, I can still use vendor search and find at least 115 items listed as if they are still up for sale on those long-extinct vendors.

    I've posted about this issue now quite a few times and nothing happens. Is it because Balhae is an orphaned shard or is it because there is a problem with vendor search but it's deemed too unimportant to spend the time to fix it?

    +1 for vendor issues.

    I believe they take the vendor search down periodically and do some type of maintenance on it.

    It's time for another tune-up.

    I got the same message earlier today and it's on the same search I do everyday. I'm looking for my last Guild Sign (Sailors) to complete my set and search every day on Atlantic (while I do my quests on Legends) and today the search was too vague...

    It's all cool I live 30 miles north of the Bay and grew up in LA so I can say what I want about MY HOME STATE, IMHO the Hollywoods need to go for a long swim and LA needs to fall off into the ocean, LOL.

    Happened to me a few times. Usually, if it would work on the second or third try. The few times it didn't, I re-logged and it worked (or vendor search was grayed out by that time). Not exactly the best solution, but I suggest trying that or getting as specific with your search traits as possible. It's definitely a bit fickle.

    The same search that was vague yesterday now works so must have been an issue with the database.
