I've recently tried setting my retainer to purchase things for me while i am offline. namely shards and things, however I'm either a complete dunse or its hard to figure out.

so simply how do i for example set my retainer to buy upto say 500 shards? usually just buy em myself but would be nice if i could set my retainer to do it overnight.

i've read that you need at least 1 of an item on your retainer to buy it so i've given my retainer a wind shard, trying to set it up to by 500 of em but i couldnt make it work :(

You have to have the amount of items that you want to buy. It really limits what you can do, unless you plan ahead and set it to buy 500 when you have 500.

Grrr seems also that if i set it to buy 500 it will only buy 500 in 1 transaction.
cant for example have 1 person sell me 300 another sell me 150 and a third person sell me 50.
stupidly annoying.

The good news:

First 2011 Version Update - Market Retainers - Functionality changes to the "buying" feature

Hopefully that fixes it. Still probably four or five months away, though.
