I'm level 21 and I still couldn't hire a retainer. Is there a quest you have to do in order to unlock retainer? My inventory is full and I need to sell some stuffs. Thanks

Are you caught up on your main story quests? You should have it if so.

If I'm not mistaken, access to retainers opens up shortly after completing Ifrit. A message pops up after turning in one of your quests to Minfilia saying that they're available.

I have no idea. I guess from drops and crafting. I'm now tossing away crafted items and material.

Pretty much every slop drop I received went to either armor repair, armor upgrades or tele's. I'm a gil spending fiend! The Gold Saucer will be the death of me!!!

The retainer is granted to you once you complete one of the main quests in Western The.

I got good advice, and it was to follow all the 'flame' quests (quests where the npc had a flame around it. So, I put off doing leve quests, duty and followed the flame quests.
I got the retainer at level 22/23. Just in time, to run out of inventory and armor inventory space.

Advice to self: Don't level all the jobs and classes, cause you just don't have the space for it.


Cheers!

Thanks for everyone. I was able to get a retainer after I initiated ifirt fight.I guess the best way to go is to concentrate on one job and get a retainer before leveling up other things.

Does having a retainer afford you more storage space?

175 slots of inventory space per retainer, and you can get two retainers.

In the release, will you be able to customize your retainer like you could in 1.0?


All I got in the beta was a F to my M main character.

The only message that I got about changing my retainers was that I could not customize my retainer in beta. So hopefully yes.
