Except with resources, it takes much, much longer to "refresh."
But why does it still show up on the mini map that there is something for you to extract?

It is not because someone has harvested from that node and they are respawning. I have harvested a node, and then stood there chatting with some one and watched the node respawn.

I have I am curious to see if they become functional after the server reset tonight.
I've never been able to harvest any resources myself yet. I'd be more inclined to think it's a problem of leveling if some resources I can harvest while others I can't. However, this seems more like resources are just broken for me.

I'm guessing it's a bug also. I hope BW fixes it soon!

2021 - same. Although I hope it's another bug introduced in one of the recent builds rather than reappearing old one
