I'm trying to buy a second retainer, I've been unable to find the option to purchase a second one in the account management system. Am I missing something obvious or is it not an option yet?
~Thanks in advance =)

Pretty sure they haven't added in the option to buy extra retainers yet. I'm guessing it will be in the first big patch that we all assume is coming but are now all getting aggrivated by the fact that its 3 days AFTER official launch and they still haven't fixed jack shit. I'm not bitter... =P

Oh darn, I am really starting to run out of room in my inventory. I guess SE isn't going to add more retainers until the end of the month when the trial period wears off and we start tog et charged for your accounts and options.

Surprised this isn't priority #1.. Extra retainer = extra $

Not until they start charging players. You could have 8 characters right now and you wouldn't have to pay for them until your next month of billing when you start getting charged.

Back on the 29th they said they were working on getting multiple retainers going in addition to the market changes. But the way they worded it is rather loose.

Quote:
"As a result, we are planning a number of revisions and additions to the system, the first of which are scheduled to be implemented in the next one to two weeks."

Then at the end of the update they say...

Quote:
"Also, we are now taking steps to increase the number of retainers that a character is able to simultaneously employ."

Since they added the bit about retainers after the part they estimated 1-2 weeks for the first market revision patch, they may not be planning on including the retainer fix in that patch. Which would mean we could be waiting longer than 2 weeks. I don't know about anyone else, but I've been out of room in my inventory and on retainer for about a week now.

Magnesium02 could be right in that they're holding this off until the first billing cycle, which would be a shame. This is one of the many basic things that should have been in right off the bat. Player storage and a fully functioning buy/sell system is a must.

I don't think it works that way, as far as I could tell by their first mail with the monthly fee the first month has a minus amount exactly for the fee and the first character, I'm pretty sure that if you have any additional character(or retailers if it was possible) they will be charged independently regardless of the trial.

Nope, I activated a second "option" because I wanted to check something without dropping my current character, and it said it's in trial period too.
