I finally did it, I managed to inch my way to level 14, and completed the city quest to purchase a home. Further than I had gotten in beta (I didn’t want to spoil the game for myself) I had no idea what to expect. Basically you’re given a plot with 7 sections to it. Each one can be dedicated to a use, with the center one being for your home. I had the rocketship home already as an account bonus, but I had heard that it’s quite small, so I decided to go with a Cassian house instead. Most of the housing items I have collected so far are plant like in nature, so my house is still quite bare. I have a fireplace, a couch, my Snuglug plushie (pictured on the bed above with my Chua) and a bed. Outside I placed a farm, as well as craft stations and a few other odds and ends. I haven’t decided exactly what I want to do with the space yet.
I was pleased to see that certain house items will give you rest experience, and that you can also get a daily experience buff from the home. Making it awesome and useful. I have no neighbours yet (sniffle, no one likes me), but I hear you can add some. I hope to explore other peoples homes, if that’s a possibility.
All in all, I’m excited about decorating. I’ve taken the crafting path that allows me to make housing items (of course, no surprise there) and have been working on making bushes and the like. Eventually I’ll have to get back to leveling, too, but in the mean time level 14 is pretty relaxing.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
