Obviously you're not collecting bods on the same account at the exact same time, and they are all a few minutes off. I don't understand what your issue is.

No, each player is different, and have their own timer.

Cuse the timer shouldn't start till they collect their last bod.. yes? its acting like they are all on the same timer as the 1st one

Yes, but the time depends on how much time has passed from their last cached bod.

See this:


There was also a similar bug on ServUO forums, which was verified on EA. Did you collect bods on EA after the new bods were introduced?

No sir, i have not.. this post is either to bring awareness to a bug.. or to help me more understand the system, as i will probably be the one to write the wiki post.. i do not understand why 3 separate accounts, seem to be acting on the same timer, as the 1st toon to start running.. the last time i collected bods the timer told me 60ish mins.. ill post tomorrows numbers.

You are missing too much data to look into this. for starters, we need the EXACT time each character collected their last bod. We then need to know the exact time of your next bod attempt, and how many bods you got. We then need to now, after you try to get your bods (when there are none left to give), how much time the vendor tells you to wait immediately after you received your last bod.

Does the timer reset at the same time every day?

How are they on seperate timers? They are all showing different times, and assuming you collect bods on character after another, its working perfectly1 Could these discrepancies in time the time it takes to get bods, log off, and log back in? Then double it because its taking roughly the same time to check the minutes (when no bod is available)?

I did not say they were on separate timers, I said they appear to be on the SAME TIMER as the 1st character to collect.. as the timer gets shorter with each character when each character collected at his own time, and should have his own timer, meaning all of them should have a collection time of 310.. the same as the 1st character on the 1st account..

No, it resets when your last bod is cached. Now, as long as you haven't gone 360 minutes over from the time the 3rd bod is cached, your time for your next bod (provided you received bods from your cache) is reduced by the difference of the real time and your last bod.
