Since 3 days once I login in morning my retainer is NO MORE were I left him, it disappear, and I have to re-summon him. WTF?? For me one of the only good things compared to FFXI was about the possibility to leave the retainer selling 24/24 even if you're offline. So again if people dont have the chance to leave their PC online 24/24 their are ****** up with selling items???

Might it be you had it positioned outside of the designated area by using the
"summon during running + lag" exploit?

Mine is in the middle using the summon and run TECHNIQUE and has been there continuously for a week. If your in a booth i think it resets everyday or when the server restarts it resets.

Nah, it's an exploit, no matter how you turn it.
You trick the server into summoning a retainer in an area where it is not normally summonable.

To get one thing straight: I happily used this exploit as well for almost 2 months now.
Until I realized that sometimes my retainer wouldn't be there anymore when I came back to check.

And actually, who knows. One day I might receive a message like "your retainer has been trampled
to death by SE's exploiter witchhunt". And I guess I'm not too fond of that thought.

The retainer wasnt in the not allowed areas, and its neither in a stand where you have to pay 500 gil every 224 hours.

It could also be due to maintenance. If there was a maintenance and/or upgrade you have to set your retainers again. Did you set your retainer after the conversion of the market wards?

I've found (but have not extensively tested) if I log out in the same Ward I summoned my Retainer in, upon logging on my Retainer would no longer be in the Ward. I've made it a habit to make sure I zone out of the Wards before I log out to avoid this issue. It happened maybe a 1/2 dozen times in the first two weeks or so from CE release...and after making sure to log out "out" of the Ward I summoned my Retainer in, I haven't had the problem since.

Be glad you could just resummon it.
I use the stalls, and one time my retainer refused to load at all, and i could not summon her as she was in the stall.
Happily the issue fixed itself be teleporting out of the bazaar and back in.

If you are placing your retainer in a "stall" it only stays for 24 hours then poofs, to give over players a chance to rent the stall.

What do you mean with "stall"? The 500gil stand? Or maybe leaving the retainer untouched for more then 24 hours?
I had this problem for 3 consecutive nights and they didnt do anything to the server on the past days. Of course I used the retainer after the last patch, and I never logout in a market ward cause when you log back in you'll have to go outside and come back in to see your retainer. It simply disappear after few hours I'm logged out it seems....

I know that, and i did not mean the lease expiring, i meant the retainer was in the stall, the stall was still rented to me, but the retainer just did not load, and i could not summon her.
If the lease had expired, i could have just summoned her.
