I can't quite seem to figure out how retainer's work, and judging by my searches it seems I'm not alone. Not only do they seem pretty clunky, but I have absolutely NO idea how to setup items for sale. To add to the problem, I am clueless on the prices I should be setting for these items too. I tried just setting random prices for an item, but for whatever reason it wont let me accept the price i put in. I can't find any guides or tutorials for using the Retainer or Bazaar... could I get some help here? Maybe ZAM would be willing to come out with some sort of guide :)

Did you read the information the retainer vendor provided?

Summon your retainer.

Exchange items.

Go to setup bazaar.

Pick inventory item you want to sell.

Setup pricing (don't forget to pick the pricing type: unit or set)


It's basically the same system you use to sell an item in your own bazaar.

I would tend to agree with the general consensus that the Retainer system as it stands is extremely lacking. I am, however, very curious what it is that we don't know about the system yet. There's still a lot of stuff that is clearly already in the game that we haven't picked up on yet. For one thing, retainers have levels, but as far as I can tell, no one really knows why yet. Also, the emblem representing your retainer changes based on his or her job, but I am suspicious that there are more modes than just idle and bazaar (which are the only two I've seen so far). I wouldn't go as far as to say that anything we haven't seen yet will save the system, but it does seem to have a few tricks up its personified sleeves.

Do Retainers in the Market Wards have a time limit?

I dont mean the stand leases. A few days now I have popped my Retainer in a Market Ward (usually the second or third as the first is just too crowded) and when I come back the next day she's not there? I summon her again and then i can see her among the others again.

So from what I can tell, they stay there for maybe 24 hrs and then leave the market?

Its very possible your retainer is being reset every time Square does maintenance, which is fairly often at this point. Or it could mean a 24hr limit, although I don't recall ever hearing that stated in the retainer information.
