I only have one retainer, and he's at the Battlecraft Row in the Market Ward. Last time I interacted with him I set him up to sell some stuff. I just went back to battlecraft row and I get a message saying I cannot summon my retainer at this time. Anybody knows what's going on? I have no idea what am I supposed to do to fix this.

Just go to that Market Ward and click on him to interact with him like normal instead of calling him with the bell.

Yeah, I found out the hard way that if the Retainers are placed in a Ward you cannot summon them to you. You have to go back to them in person... was worse for me, I had him in a Ward in Gridania and tried to summon him to LL.

I did go back to the ward and looked for him. He's not there. I thought he's supposed to be the first to show up, be he doesn't. I spent half an hour looking for him around the ward....

go to a different ward and hit "summon retainer". When it shows the picture of your retainer while asking "which retainer do you want to summon" look beneath your retainers name and it will show which ward he/she is currently in. Go to that ward and you should see your retainer (don't try to summon). Walk up to your retainer and click on the retainer to talk to them.

As far as getting the message about not being able to summon your retainer, I think there is a limit to how many retainers are allowed in any particular ward, probably due to fighting lag problems. I get the same message on Karnak server in the Battlecraft ward.
Good luck.

Oh, one more thing... there is currently some kind of bug where you go to into the ward and find your retainer "6 feet under"..... In other words, your retainer is completely beneath the ground and the only thing you can see is your retainer's name.... and the retainer's name is sitting 2 inches off the ground. So go into the proper ward and look carefully on the ground for your retainers name. If this is the case, keep trying to click on the retainer's name and eventually you should be able to talk to your retainer. This has happened to me twice!!

If you put it up b4 a maintance they wont be there when you go back to it. What I do in that case is just go to another ward in the same city and resumon it there. It should show up when you summon it there.

That's being fixed also, can't remember if its this update or next month, but they are going to show back up where they were after down time in the future.
