Welcome to our 2nd episode of Elloa & Nicky’s Reactions; in this episode we discuss our decision to hold off buying a house now that Homestead has released. We also talk about some of the exciting possibilities that Homestead has given us.
Elloa & Myself had originally planned on buying Hunding’s Palatial Hall located on Stros M’kai. It’s a large Redguard house that costs 1.3m gold.
It had a lot to offer;
- a large property
- a beachfront
- a watch tower
Just to mention a few features.
However, the more we played on the PTS the more we started to realise how expensive it was all going to be, both in terms of materials/cost and time.
We quickly came to the understanding that if we bought this home now, it would likely stand empty for many months while we save gold, collect the new materials and find the blueprints.
A lot can happen in those few months, maybe more houses will be released, or maybe our needs will change.
So it’s this that ultimately led us to remain sans house, at least for the time being whilst we collect the resources to properly decorate somewhere, which brings me onto our second point in this video.
The release of Homestead has given us a great reason to re-do content that we might otherwise have continued to ignore, whether it’s clearing dungeons and anomalies in Craglorn for new motifs, or doing vet dungeons again to collect the busts.
Homestead has given us a reason to loot every box looking for the next great item to feature in your home!
Elloa & myself have been having a blast doing guild dailies, and collecting the new mats as it’s something we both find very relaxing to do.
And let’s not forget the hunt for those ever illusive Master Writs! For the hoarders amongst us (yeah, we put our hands up) there wasn’t a huge reason to do them, now there’s the opportunity to get special items, or if those don’t interest you the writs themselves are selling for huge amounts on the servers right now.
Whatever you are into, we truly feel that Homestead has a lot to offer for PVE players and RP alike.
All that said, for now we will continue to remain ‘Homeless in Homestead’ and we are totally OK with that.
