I'm a pretty new player. I have a couple of classes around level 10ish and I've begun to accumulate a large number of random loot. I searched the Market Wards in my home town of Gridania but the histories show that people don't seem to shop there very often. After doing some research, I have discovered that most people use the Market Wards in Ul'Dah. After traveling to Ul'Dah and entering the Market Wards, I was dismayed to see the message, "You cannot summon any more retainers in this area." After going through each and every one of the individual areas of the Market Wards (no small task), I failed to summon my retainer every time. Am I doing something wrong? Is there some trick or quest that I am missing here? I ended up selling all of my merchandise to an NPC to open up inventory but I would like to address this issue for future reference. Thanks in advance!
P.S. If anyone knows of a good linkshell for beginners on Ridill, please let me know. Thanks!
