Charged for items already sold at bazaar

I have been trying to buy aether and fossil for the legendary craft quest at the bazaar. Sometimes I am lucky enough to acquire them.

But I have noticed that sometimes I will hear the "cash register" sound, see my gold reduced, but then I get the message that "Sorry - item already sold." But I was charged for it, I didn't get the item, and my gold count doesn't go back up!

This has happened several times now! My gold is being deducted and I don't get the reagent?!

Anyone else seen this???

:-(

@ellielee,

Yes, I noticed the same problem over the past few days. It seems that the inventory is not able to keep up with the fierce, rapid buying of reagents and accompanying refresh rate.

I'd love to know what's the issue. Are we really are being charged for items that are already sold.

Thanks,

qbb/Iridian Shadowweaver, Legendary Artisan

Yes have the same problem all the time in Bazaar. This has happened more times then I care to count. The Bazaar taking your gold and not giving the item. Someone needs to fix this!

Yes - so easy to say...

I have 2 Legendary Artisans, both of which took a lot harvesting work and some luck at the bazaar.

Just because it happens, doesn't make it right. The gold is hard earned through farming and whatnot. Paying for something and not getting your gold back or not getting the item is wrong.

It's easier to shrug it off when you are at the gold cap etc. But what about the person working on Grandmaster Artisan who isn't in Zafaria and doesn't have much to sell? The one who "bought" a golden pearl for 3500 and got nothing? If it happens enough, that's a lot to lose...

Please address this KI. All I ask is that we get our gold back if we didn't get the item...

Thanks!

I have figured out that if you dont just buy it (clicking the buy, not buy more) then this WONT happen, it will just say 0 ... bought for 0 gold. On the flip side, buying might be faster, but this is much more likely to happen. (its a gamble-no gold spent, more time, oor less time, but at a risk of spending gold on nothing.

Im wondering if this is a old bug or did this just start to happen after the release of the new world....

Plus although i know getting nothing after paying for it be it a game or real life is very anoying but unless you bought gold with crowns I would not hold your breathe I believe they will fix it ... but i also Believe at this point they have alot on there plate .... and i am sure they are acessing what is important at the moment and what can be fixed later....

Thanks for Reading

This happens to me on a daily, hourly, 1/2 hourly intervals, most times I now wait for there to be more then 1 of the crafting item in list just to buy 1.
