    My retainers are either lazy or thieves.

    Anybody have any funny stories with their retainers? Sometimes they'll bring back great items like a Mameshiba or cool housing item, sometimes they bring back things that make you scratch your head.

    My favorite is when I spend 2 ventures to send them out and they come back with a single allagan tin piece. They should have just reached into their pocket and pulled out a few gil.

    Have a retainer right now who seems to enjoy robbing the Sultana. First, she brought back a Royal Plotting Table and the very next venture she brought back a painting of Nanamo. I gotta give her credit, couldn't have been easy to smuggle those out of the palace. XD

    Your retainer sure is talented. I've all but given up on quick ventures on mine, except the FSH since that one's nearly useless anyway.

    Back while I was still saving up to buy a house, my two retainers kept bringing me home furnishings everyday. From paintings, lights, roofs, wall/floor tiles to workbenches....

    After I successfully bought the plot I wanted, they stopped doing it altogether.

    I guess mine just really hate me because they love bringing me fish all the time. .-.
    Occasionally my BRD retainer brings me house walls, though.

    For some reason my retainer likes to bring back lots and lots of PvP-gear (funny enough: there is actually a random-retainer NPC that can show up at the Wolves Den. In german he says that its "almost to easy" to get gear/something to bring back this way). The weird part about it though: She always brings back ast-gear. 90% of PvP-gear that she brought back was for astrologian.

    I dont play that job.

    My lady retainer once brought me back a pair of female undies....and I play a guy character. The FC and I had a ball with that one saying things like there is a poor cat girl out there somewhere probably in dusk vigil freezing, or that I'm really dense and can't take a hint that my retainer was apologizing for not bringing back anything worth while and saying "I'm sorry master, please accept my undies instead", lots of jokes were thrown around that night. :P

    One of mine used to bring back HQ roof tiles and nails all the time. I wonder who's house they took apart to get them. If it wasn't that, it was always fish. Always.

    I make about 10 million a week off of quick ventures from retainers. Granted I have 9 retainers, but it's always worthwhile, no matter how many fish they sometimes bring, they will always eventually bring back housing items, dyes etc..... persevere.

    On Quick Ventures:
    My Dark Knight Retainer brings back Fish

    My Fishing Retainer brings back level 50-60 dungeon weapons and armor

    Something is wrong here...
