Ive Noticed that each zone has a place nobody can access. (Northern Islands - Limsa Lominsa, Lily Hills - Gridania, The Fronds - Ul'dah). I have yet to see these areas involve themselves in the story like areas where a Prince, Captain, or King would be located. So... I saw some post about the fact that Square-Enix is unwilling to give retainer support because it may be removed or something at this point. Knowing how poorly implemented the retainer system is it wouldn't surprise me if the retainer system was only temporary until an AH was put into place.

Doesn't mean the will retainer system would go away. But just curious on what these areas are. Nobody has ever entered them to prove what they are. I heard that FFXI never had an AH in the Japanese Release.

Regarding auctionhouses:

Regarding Final Fantasy XIV and the market battle system is something we would like to consider the equilevent to the auction house we had in Final Fantasy XI. Only that you'll also be able to fix your equipment and things like that. It is something we really want people to enjoy. Also after the release of the game we will see how it goes and for example find out what kind of search options players will want and need and improve the situation. We don't really want to introduce the auctionhouse from the beginning because that is going to determine the economy system. So we want to improve it slowly and adjust it accordingly.

For the record, I like retainers. But hate the lag. :D

But reading this, if they follow through as he says, hurts me a little inside. We need something else. I don't even bother going into the market wards anymore due to lag and the time sink. So I'm doing it the only other way open to me...crafting the stuff myself.

Either way it's a time sink, I get that. But what we have now is utter crap.

Retainers aren't good when there is SO much menu lag.

Retainers are not good when you need X and and you don't know who is selling X...and there are thousands of possibilities who may have X.

I am assuming they have a search function ready to go...but did not want to implement until they had a better understanding the server requirements it would take to handle such a function. Hopefully they know or will know soon after the 30th.
