If there is one thing a player who decides to do gathering and crafting needs, its inventory space!!!

When you join, you get to have two retainers you can place in any market area in Eorzea. This is great at first. You have places to put gear and other important items.


1. Shizzy

Shizzy is the first retainer I made. He is a white mage who I have put in charge of holding weaving items, dyes, wood and fishing tools.

2. Sazzy

Sazzy is my second retainer I made. She is a Black mage who is in charge of my gear. This is the place any high, blue gear items so I don’t have them always in my main charcters inventory.


Well its great until you start to notice that 3 sets of inventory (including your own characters space) is just not enough. There are options to buy more retainers from the Mog Station. So thats what I did.

3. Seline Koca

koca was the third retainer. She is a Miner, which is perfect for helping you collect shards and other mining items while you mine as well. She is in charge of mining items. This alone manages to fill the inventory easy. But its also why I decided to start goldsmithing to help use the materials that a miner mines.

Note: I have now changed her name to Koca as from 12th May 2018


However, I had already started fishing so it needed space and then the items made by a goldsmith needed space too. So yet another retainer was needed.

4. Sebby

Sebby was created and he is a botonist to help get those minions on a botonist retainer can get. He is incharge of botonist items.


As you can tell by now, I tend to keep my inventories as organised as possible to help me remember which retainer has which items.

However, after slowly building up two gathers and two crafting classes, I have yet again come to the dreaded ‘Noooo all the inventories are full!!!!’


5. Sonnie  Jak

Jak was made only yesterday. He is a Monk who is in charge of gems, nuggets, formulas and inks.

So far 5 should be enough and if anything, its perfect to help sell items I have made in all market areas.

Note: I have now changed his name to Jak as from 12th May 2018

6. Rune

So here we are with number six! In February I felt I needed another retainer to help with levelling up my crafters.

Rune was made to help with all the left over items, however its now changed and she holds my mog station and rare items gear. I wanted to keep it separate so I don’t actually get rid of something I wanted to keep.

Because I am no where near perfect and I like glamouring my classes gear, I got another retainer in April 2018 to help with my collection of clothes and accessories.

7. Emmie

Getting closer to reaching the retainer limit >.<

Emmie was made as I was finding hard to keep with holding crafting items. She has all the webs, fleeces, cocoons, leathers, skins, hides, horns, fangs and wings for crafting. I just need to level up the last 4 crafters I have hahaha.

I told myself that I wasn’t going to get to 8 retainers, but I made the decision to get rid of my small cottage in the globet on Sat. 12th May. While I was removing the gear I had placed, the retainer inventories were getting full with the extra items.

8. Wade

Wade (named after Wade Wilson AKA Deadpool) was created to hold the weapons, crafting gear and housing items. This is until I decide on what I should do about my housing arrangements.
