Hello, I`m kinda new to the game and have some doubts concerning selling my stuffs.
Right now, when I want to sell something, I park my character somewhere in Uldar that I think has the most traffic. It works, but the problem is, I have to let my character online the whole time, thus my PC online the whole time. In the end of the month, I probably wont like what I will have to pay for energy.
I hear that you can use retainers and they stay at wards. Can somebody clarify that to me? How exactly do they work? Where are they parked (I`m at Uldah)? And how do I get there?

Thanks for your kind answers.

You can employ the services of a retainer by speaking to an NPC near where you started the game at. I didn't start in Ul'dah, so I can't tell you the exact position, however in both Gridania and Limsa Lominsa the NPC for retainers was next to the NPC you speak with about the main quest.

The retainers can be summoned in Wards, which are a separate portion of the map entirely. There should be a zone somewhere in Ul'dah where you get a "!" indicator, to Teleport. Once you hit it, it'll ask you what ward you want to go to. Pick one, and you'll be warped to the Ward area. Summon your ward via your menu, and you can exchange items and set up your retainer's bazaar. The retainer will bazaar your stuff in the ward you summoned it in regardless of if you're online or not.

Keep your eyes on these threads as SE is about to release an update to market wards which should make them a lot easier to use, both for sellers and buyers.

Thank you a lot. That explaing some things. So SE mostly took the idea of merchants from Ragnarok and expanded it. Hmm...it`s not that bad idea. Most people are used to AH thanks to WoW and FFXI, but I am used to this kind of system too, since I played Ragnarok years ago.
Maybe it will work, we`ll see.

Anyway, thank you for your explanation, I will hire one today.
