Its kinda eerie the way they look restless almost to the point of open rebellion. Personally, I'm getting ready to bust the kneecaps on mine to stop them from moving around so much.

Before the patch, retainers would just stand, unmoving. The patch added movements to the retainers, and while they don't walk around, they do shuffle a lot in place. Crossing arms, shifting weight from one foot to the other, stuff like that.

Whoa! So now we have soulless zombies that actually stir in their lifeless slumber.
Mega-creepy.

Oh, I knew they were still. They move now? That is kinda creepy. Cool, but weird.

I'm waiting for an auction house so I can put mine out of her misery for good. Doesn't seem like that's going to happen though.

They do fidget a lot.
What would be creepier is if they turned to look at you as you got nearer.

It would be funnier if they got into various sexual positions as you got near them.

It would certainly get more people to go to the wards, that's for sure.

They sense we all hate them and are definitely planning a coup as we speak.

Fast forward 8 weeks and we will be doing the retainer duties while the retainers run free on the fields as the new adventurers.

I bet they're all itching to be Level 2.

Though as an afterthought sending my Retainer out to level (like an automated Fellowship NPC in XI) would be funny.

This would actually be a great idea and seeing NPCs run around actually doing that with their exclusive mobs would be cool. Maybe not mobs but they could do DOH and DOL stuff.

That was actually my favorite feature of the "Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles My Life as a King" game. All the characters had their own skills and spells that they leveled up while gathering materials for the Kingdom.

Something that could be cool and give some life to the game outside of being only populated by players would be if your retainer(s) would casually walk by as a random events while in their respective cities.

If they are not in the wards, the could wave and say "Hi" to you before continuing their way or, if they were supposed to be attending your goods in the wards, they could start to panic and flee; afraid that you would catch them skipping work.

Wishful thinking: yes
Random: yes
Being implemented : not before the game is ready for it.

Lets just hope that nobody at SE is messing around trying to give them emotions or this could become "I Retainer".

FACT: Retainers outnumber us 2 to 1.

FACT: Retainers are holding our arms and armaments

FACT: Retainers are becoming more sentient.

CONCLUSION: Retainers want to steal our women and kill our dog.

The end is near my brothers.

This isn't as far fetched as it sounds... it will exist in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

You'll be able to get crew members to do bits like this for you, and they'll level up as they do it.
