'''Retainers''' are special NPCs in ''[[Final Fantasy XIV]]'' with whom players can store their items and [[gil]]. They have a maximum storage capacity of 175 items, and can assigned to sell items in the [[Market Board|market]]. Players can choose from any race/gender combination for their retainer (albeit with predefined characters for each combination), and though they have a given name they may assign a nickname to refer to them. While their appearance cannot be modified, they can wear whatever piece of equipment is on sale, as a means to advertise wares.
   
==Obtaining and customizing retainers==
+
The player can summon their retainer with the Retainer Bell in every cities.
In ''A Realm Reborn'', players are authorized to hire a retainer upon joining the [[Scions of the Seventh Dawn]] during the main scenario. Retainers can be hired by speaking with Retainer Vocates in any the major cities' [[Market Ward]]. Up to two retainers may be hired into service. Players can obtain additional retainers by paying an additional fee with their subscription.
 
   
Players can choose from any race/gender combination for their retainer, customize their appearance and assign a nickname to refer to them. ''Heavensward'' must be registered to a players account to hire [[Au Ra|Auri]] retainers. Until Patch 2.2, they could wear whatever piece of equipment is on sale, as a means to advertise wares, but with the addition of Ventures players can outfit them manually and assign a class. Patch 2.4 introduced an item called Retainer Fantasia (obtained randomly from Quick Exploration ventures), which enables the player to change their retainer's appearance and name without dismissing them. Starting with Patch 3.2, retainers can be assigned a full job, including those added with expansions.

The player can summon their retainer with the Retainer Bell in the Market Ward of every major city, as well as residential districts, inn rooms, and other major settlements like Revenant's Toll. A Retainer Bell can also be installed within player housing and comes installed in Free Company workshops.
 
 
==Retainer Ventures==
 
Starting from Patch 2.2, players could assign their retainers a class and assign them to Ventures. The classes could only be assigned based on what the player unlocked, and maximum level was is player's class level minus five (except at 60, where it becomes 60 for retainer). Retainers could be assigned any class except crafting classes, and can not equip Job crystals (which restricts them from certain gear). The gear equipped to a retainer affects their ability to complete Ventures, depending on average item level (or, in the case of Disciples of the Land, their Gathering rating). As such, it is best to try to improve retainer gear as much as possible.
 
 
To send them on a venture, players must pay them with special venture tokens. This currency can be obtained by completing [[levequest]]s, Beast-Tribe quests, or purchased with Grand Company Seals or Allied Seals. Ventures will be undertaken for a certain amount of real-time; once completed, they will present items and receive experience for their efforts. Exploration ventures take the longest and are divided into tiers (designated by Roman numerals), but provide significant experience and occasionally a rare item (including exclusive [[Minion (Final Fantasy XIV)|minions]]). Procurement ventures are useful to assist in crafting. Once the retainer reaches level 10, they may undertake Quick Exploration, which yields a completely random item (regardless of class). The items retrieved from Quick Exploration can vary from odd fish or housing components, to varying equipment and crafting materials. In some rare cases, they have been observed retrieving items from endgame content. The EXP they receive is dependent on how rare the item is.
 
 
Note that even while undertaking ventures, they can still sell items on the market or be contacted to handle items. However, players cannot change their equipment until the venture completes.
