I've read that Ursulie at The Drowning Wench (the pub you start in next to Baderon) is the NPC where you order your Retainer, but for me (as of 8/21/2010) she only states "Might you come back later when my hands aren't as full? I apologize for the inconvenience."

Does anyone know if there a level or rank requirement before you are eligible for a Retainer? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lordslacker (talkcontribs).

I don't know about your city, but have you completed all the starting instances? Also, do you already have a retainer on another character? It might not make a difference, but I've read something about a limit of one retainer and I'm not sure whether it's per character or account. --Alephnot 02:42, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Loop to retainer limit[edit]

i think i manage to find a loop to the one retainer per character in which players can get a retainer from each far i have one in gridania and Limsa lomnisa(sp). I haven't tried Ul'dina yet. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sinperhezine (talkcontribs).

One of the last updates increased the limit to two. That's probably what you are seeing. When you go to visit Ul'dah, you will probably be turned away Lilyheart 00:36, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
