Extra Retainers?Follow

I'm planning on doing quite a bit of crafting, so I was going to get several retainers. However I does not seem like you can add more that one just yet. On the SE account page there are options to add more full characters but I see no options for additional retainers anywhere.

I'm still installing so can't check, but do you just sign up for extra retainers in game, and they bill you automatically?

Yes, retainers are automatically billed when you buy them from the NPC from what I can tell.

I would think that you would have to authorize it in the account page first, since they supposedly cost $1 a month extra.

Don't you supposedly get 1 free retainer per character? Or 1 free for your account or something? I just heard the first one was free some time back, no?

Yeah, when you're talking with the NPC you have to confirm it 3 or 4 times that you want that retainer. So unless your dead set on getting one, misclicking shouldn't be a problem.

One per character, yes.

So then that means that you can buy a second character and the second one will also come with it's own retainer? Is that for sure - can anyone confirm it?

I could handle that. I really hate being limited to one character but didn't want to have to go paying for extra ones and then extra retainers and so forth. I think the whole idea of only 1 character per account unless you pay for more is really ridiculous! Most games give you at least 3-6 to start with. For all you're paying, that seems quite a bit stingy to me!

Another question I have for those of you who have purchased more retainers.
Does it bill you immediately? Or is it covered under the free trial? Say I want one extra retainer, do I have to pay $1 now or does it wait to bill you until Oct 22?

So I went to the npc to hire more retainers and she said I cannot hire more than 1.
So is it not possible to hire more than one?

It's not possible at the moment it seems. You can't add a retainer to your account via the SE members account section and you can't just up and hire one in game yet either.

I was under the impression that we could purchase more than one retainer so I assume that the ability to do so will be added soon. Perhaps after full release?

Bwarg, this sucks I was really hoping to get like 5+ retainers.

(I'm kind of a pack rat)
