    Suggestions for Minions and Mounts: automatic Roulette/Search/Housing

    Please add an option to have the summoned minion change automatically every (for example) 1 minute.
    We already have a minion roulette action that summons a random minion. My problem is that I like a lot of different minions and don't have space on my hotbars for all of my favorites. Maybe add an option to assign 25-50 favorite minions to cycle through.

    Please add a search field in the minion (and mount) menu.
    I own many minions and have to scroll through 10 pages in the menu. Even though they are sorted in some way, I still cannot find the minion I am looking for most of the time.

    Please add a function, (similar to retainers) to have minions and mounts roam in the garden or house.
    I'm sure this was requested many times before, but it's something I'm sure a large part of the player base really wants to see. It could be done the same way as with retainers or NPCs. You place them and the minions roam around that point like they do when summoned by a player.

    Why not?

    Having so many minions and only show off the newest is boring right? Atleast most old ones get no attention at all - i would say have the minion roulette have an option to randomly summon any of the aquired ones.

    The order of the Minions and Mounts do is interesting. Not alphabetic, not by date we got them, by date they were released - guess it has some reason behind but i can't see it as it is now making any sense. Let us reorder them or have a search function.

    Having minions room around in house and garden sure would be a funny thing - seeing 200 chocobos kill the lochs map tho makes me wonder if it would just crash the whole house server if everyone has them out.

    The whole in other words - short - i agree with Riiko! Let's give some more love to those small companions and mounts!

    As you pointed out, if you have obtained many minions it can be difficult to find a specific minion when searching through your guide.

    Currently, there isn't any internal system that would allow us to create a search feature within an icon type list such as the minion guide, so it would be difficult to implement this right away. However, we're checking to see if there's anything we can do in the future.

    Thanks again for the feedback, and please feel free to continue to share your thoughts on quality of life updates for minions, mounts and housing features!

    just type /minion "Fat Cat" or /minion "Wind-up Rikku" or something instead of looking for it.

    Just divide the minion guide into categories, like animals, mammets, etc so you can tab into a certain section and find what you want there faster.

    For many minions, you can make it even faster if you auto-translate the minion name.

    Ex: /minion Namingway
    /minion nami(tab)(enter)

    Ex: /minion "Fat Cat"
    /minion fat(tab)(enter)

    Type out the full names for wind-up minions, though. There are eleven pages of autotranslate wind-up minion names.
