Home Sweet (new) Home..Neriak Style
Misako gave up the drab inn room in EFP and moved her belongings to Neriak
Wow. That’s the only word I can use to describe the new homes in Neriak. A part of me is wondering if they’re going to “change” them. Right now, you can purchase a 5-room for a little under 2p, and it has a 7g a week upkeep. No guild level required, no guild status required. Compare this to the Freeport and Qeynos homes that require both guild status and guild levels in order to purchase them, and you may have some pissed off people. Especially Qeynosians, because let me tell you, none of the houses on the good side compare to this one at all. The screen shot is from the front door. Stain glass windows don’t seem to let any actual light in, but uhms we’re underground so that’s fine by me. There is an upstairs and a downstairs from the main level, spiral staircases lead to each. There are two sets of staircases leading up in fact. It’s beautiful and makes you feel like you’re living in a castle of some sort.
It’s a shame that only one of my main characters is evil, I can see myself betraying just for these homes. There is a very fast citizen ship quest you have to complete before you can move to Neriak if you’re from outside the city. You need a sponsor, and you can use the guards to find each one of the npc you hail (and then promptly kill) which makes it easier. There are of course also teleports throughout the zone, you have to complete a level 10 quest in order to access them.
I also made my level 1 Arasai Warlock, but after taking note of the 100+ other fae and random evils running around the zone, I quickly relogged. I’ll just sit that character for a bit and work them up when the zone isn’t just a mass congregation of wings.
The new moving crates, are an EQII godsend. That’s the box parked on the floor in front of the door in the screen shot. They really needed these a long time ago, and they work wonderfully. I half expected to unpack my crate and find it filled with items from someone else’ home, alas that was not the case. They did a very nice job with the new homes. I just wish the older ones looked as nice.
