Happening again, even if you add 10 filter's or use 1 name or 2 names.

    It is doing this on LS also.  I was marking Runes in Hythloth and about 10 searches that did not complete earlier, popped up while I was there.

    Yes down way more than it is up this week.  Sometimes get repeated search results like Pawain states when I am in the field a long time after having given up on VS.  Sometimes after having logged off hours before logging back on,  One time the same search time out message popped up four or five times hours after I had given up on the search.

    This is a byproduct of the server code still being from the 90's.  Database isn't using modern indexing and VS engine is pinging hundreds of millions of rows of data,  using text strings no less (Which is taxing on server cpu).

    Do not expect server code & infrastructure to ever be upgraded anytime soon.   This would be a monumental undertaking.  Even with a staff of 100 developers, would take years.   Its just is what it is.

    I found VS to be a little faster in some cases,  if you limit item search to 2 words and search in the reverse word-order of the item.   Example,  if item name is battle axe.  type 'axe battle' in VS.   Filtering down using misc drop-down is not always faster...  I found artifact rarity is fast.  Luck is NOT.   My guess is they started indexing some item attributes =\

    A few suggestions for VS
     nothing labeled display should be included in VS.
    Better filter i dream of a not splintering filter...

    It sounds like this issue is just on LS. 

    We have more items than most shards but no that many items.

    Usually I can click exclude fel and see every item on the shard in a few seconds.

    Now whatever you do the results show up 10 minutes later.
