Servers actually just coming down. Will be down from 5:00am pacific through around 8:30am (if all goes to plan of course, never know what the power source hamsters might be up to.)

Had to be done, but dammit, I was looking forward to seeing what my offline traders sold after being up since Wed night until raid time tomorrow.

I wouldn't think so.

When "returning" to the account while having an offline trader, you get the same "omg! You have a character in the world already! Would you like to wait 30s while I do something about that?" that you get when you crash / LD / whatever and try to return right away.

The server downtime would almost certainly clear these logged-in characters.
