Will you buy any more retainers?Follow

#1 Dec 15 2010 at 7:32 PM Rating: Good
Since I'm getting 2 free retainers (I have two accounts), I put that money towards ZAM premium. I figure, if I was willing to pay $15 a month for a game I knew wasn't even finished, I should be able to put that couple bucks a month towards supporting a team that is one of the best at providing gaming information.

To celebrate my premium I did what just about everyone does and I'm making a poll.

Now that everyone gets 2 free retainers, when the opportunity arises, will you buy more?
Yes I will buy more, I need to set up shop in more than 2 places.:3 (7.9%)
Yes I will buy more, 300 storage slots isn't enough.:7 (18.4%)
Yes I will buy more, 300 storage slots isn't enough and I also need more shops.:6 (15.8%)
I'm not sure, I need to see how things go.:7 (18.4%)
No I won't, two retainers meets my needs.:15 (39.5%)

I'll probably be getting 1-2 more...just because I'm a pack rat and am leveling everything.

Probably see how things go. 200 storage spots seems like enough currently, but then again I've been leveling EVERYTHING lately Smiley: lol

I don't really have a reason to have 2 retainers but it wont hurt I guess.

One of my characters is already @ 270/300 slots after mining tonight.

I currently have one retainer set up for selling items and my second is basically on call (i.e. able to be recalled anywhere there is a bell or a call point) so that I can put stuff in and take stuff out as is necessary for my crafting... therefore I will be paying for additional retainers.

I've never put my retainers in the wards. They're storage only. It's not that I don't want to put them in the wards, it's that I don't want to put them somewhere and then have to travel to that city to access them.

That having been said, I'm sitting at just over 200/300 slots consumed right now and expect the extra slots to take at least a little while to fill up. It's nice to be walking around with over 40 free inventory spaces on my character now. I can do my mining leves without having to pitch 3/4 of the ore I dig up and I can set that ore aside until I'm in LL/Ul'dah to smelt it down into nuggets. ****, I even have space now so that I can start using accessories without feeling like they're taking up much space.

But knowing me, it'll be two weeks before I'm pining for the option to buy more retainers D:

Where's the option that 2 retainers aren't enough but I don't want to put time to manage even 2 ones?

Seriously this is true. There are still some shards on sale from the first week that no-one bought and my guy is most likely in the wrong ward. I don't see what could make me care about the situation though.

I get so much money from leves that selling is an irrelevant source of income at this point.

Where's the option: "No, I won't RENT more retainers just to support their crappy market system."?
