A Retainer gone missingFollow

Ok, so last night I left my Retainer in the Chirurgeons Ward in Ul'dah, the next morning I do a couple of Leves in the La Noscea Zone, come back to Limsa Lominsa and Summon my Retainer, I want to make some Bronze Knuckles, so I have to get some Mets. I summon him and I get this Message:

"You have No retainer to Summon..."

So I'm like "wtf.... oh maybe it is cause I left him in Ul'dah's market ward is why the game thing I don't have one available." make senses I guess; so I head to Ul'dah's market Chirurgeons market ward, my retainer is no where to be seen. I try to summon him there and still get the same message as above. ok... maybe I have to go back to the guild and summon him there first.... so I go there and try to summon him... still nothing.

Well at this point you could say that I was getting quiet mad, so I log out all the way and log back in and still no Retainer. By now I'm cussing up a storm which lasted I'd say a good 10 to 20 mins. I settle down for a moment and started to chuckle to myself. "Maybe the little ******* said **** it and ran off with my Stuff." really that would be kind of fun to think the games NPC just up and did that.

But with he joking aside, at this point I have lost my retainer, all my Mets, gil, Items, and Gear I have stored with him. I'm going to go to the support desk on the Lodestone, but at this time I can't seem to log in there, but I wonder has anyone else had this problem before, this is the first time I've seen this happen before, I know this game is still loaded with bugs and glitches but this one really takes the cake.

Did you push the "Retainer List" button in the menu, not the "summon Retainer" button?

The "Retainer List" button will tell you exactly where it is, and you can summon them from the location it tells you.

The Wards have been crashing alot lately, and that is why you do not "see" your retainer in the place you left it, but it IS still there, technically.

I hope you are able to find it again!

Cool, thanks for the reply, I checked it and yeah he it says he is still in the ward, but I can't find him, also forgot his name too it's "Bibireze"

Now this is the strange part, I went to the retainer desk, and I can now select another retainer, what is going on. o.o;;;

YEa the market wards are just buggy overall they need a lot of fixing. Yesterday i came home from work and both retainers were "missing". They weren't in the wards i left them but when i went to summon them it said they were already out. Then later on i was able to summon them both but one of them would disappear the moment i left even if he had stuff in the bazaar. It fixed itself eventually but yea. Definitely some bugs going on. I must say though I am enjoying the search function. I find myself standing at the item search counter browsing for a long time just like I would an AH. I approve.

You can now have 2 retainers so if you only have one that is why you can hire a second one.

Since Bibereze is missing from a market crash just goto any ward in Ul market and summon him to reappear. This should fix it.

Well I'm a total fool, that I am. I just found him in the Limsa Lominsa Ward. >.<

Sorry about, but thank you very much for the replies, I got really scared there for a moment... this Retainer stuff is still a little confusing for me, I'll stay out of the markets for now. XD

Side note: If you, on purpose or accidentally, release your retainer for good...

It and all the stuff on it are gone for good.

Remember to release from service FOR NOW and you will be ok....

You can always go and to the NPC that you picked your retainer from originally and replace it, but your stuff is lost.

It tells you this in the info about retainers.
