my retainer is hiding from meFollow

Any idea how I can find my retainer? I summoned him in the first market ward in ul'dah.. I went back there to check on him today and I don't physically see him. He has to be there because when I try to summon a retainer it says I can't have another out. But I just can't find him anywhere. Any suggestions here?

Assuming that's true is there anyway I can delete my retainer and start fresh? Not really sure what to do here. Can't just go without one forever, heh.

Search for him. Mine did the same thing and she was all the way at the other end. I didn't put her there but I guess she got tired and had to go for a stroll.

Can you go to that guy who introduced you to your retainer? Does he (or she) give you any options?

Yep... Seems like all the same bugs from open beta are in the CE Release (aka OB Phase 2).

My retainer's name appeared in like a bluish pink color. That is the only thing I can use to find mine in a crowd. They really should change that to make finding them easier. Maybe let you summon them when you're in the same market ward as them? "Hey Julie, over here!"

go to an empty ward, and summon him there.

The problem with that is that you can't summon your retainer unless you dismissed them from the original ward first. It took me an hour to figure that out, but it kinda makes sense. If you're trying to shop, you don't want the retainer bazaar you're shopping in to suddenly disappear because their owner summoned them.

I wonder if they can make it so that your character and your retainer take priority when loading the area. Also a "/target <retainer name>" would be nice.

Edit: Of course, this would only be if the retainer literally had to walk (don't know why SE programmed it that you can't summon an instance of your retainer anywhere). I guess they want to make the retainers realistic.
