All I know if they reset whenever server maintenance occurs. Though I don't think that's happening every night.

Perhaps your retainer is a horrible employee. They go out to the miners guild in ul'dah to be a stripper (Or a patron) every night and spend all the money they've earned.

Yes...its happening...but random. I would say once every 2 days or so mine is no longer there...but no one else's is there either. I have more problems with it because I cant find what I'm looking for since the wards empty out.

Everyone who is ****** the Auction House question on the survey will be won by the auction house answer, this thread is 90% of the reason why it will win. The current system is workable other than the fact that retainers disappear daily.

I've noticed a similar thing. Usually when I check my retainers the next day, it says they are in the ward but I can't find them, I have to resummon.

I've seen it happen twice in one day on my server. Highly irritating when you keep them full of things you want to sell.

FYI the problem seems to be (at least on my server) focused in UlDah. My retainer has been in place over 24 hours, but this morning it had been reset. However my retainer in Gridania has been there since the last patch. I'm guessing most of the servers are using UlDah as a psuedo Jeuno and overloading the server.

The problem is not just in uldah, I have both my retainers in LL and need to place them back in the wards every time I go in there.

It seems to be some kind of crash of the servers running the market wards themselves.

Just the other day I tried to enter and the server timed out. Then when I logged back in it wouldn't load any items on search at first, nor any wards themselves in the list of destinations. After a few minutes they were back up but mostly devoid of retainers.

Yes, they reset the wards (sometimes a couple times a day). I'm thinking so people have a chance to sell in the correct ward... though that is a really lame reason. The worst is when you get caught up in the reset when crafting. I've stopped selling and never craft in them. It's a pain. And just plain broken if they have to reset them.

The thing is, I'm not sure they know it's happening. A while back, they posted a known issue about a bug where retainers reset during maintenance. There was no mention of this one, even though it was occurring then too.

It's the wards that have a high amount of retainers which are the ones that crash and reset the most frequently. On Bodhum Ul'dah crashes the most frequently, Limsa semi-frequently and Gridania almost never. >_> So with that observation there's probably some limit that is being hit that could be either # of retainers or # of items being sold and crashing the ward server. And if they have no idea it is going on then it maybe it's more of a program crash than a server crash...

My retainer kept disappearing. I'd shrug it off, thinking that it was a game glitch. Then, one day I went to the market wards in a different city. To my surprise, I found my retainer, making out with some dude I'd never seen before. It wasn't a glitch at all that ***** was cheating on me. They explained that this had been going on for some time and that they were in love.

That was one week ago. I--just don't know what to do. I summon here from time-to-time, but it just feels like a business transaction. Afterwards, she scurries off probably going to see that @#%^ bf of hers. I don't even attempt to summon her in a ward, it'll just hurt too much if she's gone when I come back. I no longer want to employ her, but in the back of my mind, I keep thinking that there's still a chance she'll come back to me...

I heard that they usually only crash in the most heavily populated towns that that the less populated towns often crash less or not at all. which makes REquiring Anima to quickly shop is ridiculous.

We need a unified AH retainers are nice as banks and additional sale slots but they are slow and still underutulized because travel between cities is so harsh.

yeah I bought a stand twice yesterday (within an hour each time) and then today it wasn't in the ward [less than 24 hours later] and nothing had sold - so was it booted right away or did my prices just suck? How can I even tell?
