<p>Greystone Yard</p><p>First toon was a Barbarian Pally-so it's nostalgic.</p><p>Access to QH and Oakmyst.  No small corridors to find and go through.  Any place with Dwarves and Barbarians is cool. </p>

Oh gee *hmmm* I think my favorite is Beggar's Court.  Nostalgic, just like the last poster.  My first and favorite character began there and it feels "homely."  Feel kinda like a stranger in all the others.

Stonestair Byway is my favorite. My first Inn room was there and conveniently located by the tradeskill instance, bank & mariner's bell. Sacrificed those conveniences for my 3 room home in N. Freeport. However, I still head over to Stonestair to do all my crafting.

For me, I think my favorite is Castleview Hamlet.  It wasn't the 1st place I ever "lived" but eventually I made enough High Elves that I became really familiar with it -- to the point that my betrayed Ogre and my (deleted) Dwarf lived there also.  All my High Elves live in Longshadow Alley now, though.  And my Ogre lives in Kelethin.  I don't actually have any Q characters anymore.

Big Bend - the shortest way to everything and the connection to SFP is helpful.

<p>Willow Wood.  Besides the fact that the Inn, Tradeskill, Mender, and Bank are all centrally located, and the convenience of a bell, there is also the Elddar Grove next door.  There I can find an arrow vendor, and treehugger writs.</p><p>Plus, Willow Wood is simple to navigate end-to-end.  And all the elves seem to appreciate my barbarian bigness...</p>

I agree with Jalek, the Village of Shin is a lovely place. And it is a shame that you cannot take up residence there.

Baubbleshire. Nice and small and all homey feeling. I still go there to craft normally with my Qeynos toon. On the Freeport side, I prefer the Scale Yard.  And I echo the others in saying it's a shame we can't live in Shin. That's one of my favorite zones.

Willow Wood without a doubt.  All the amenities are clustered together, and I love the rural feel.  I tend to get lost in most of the other villages, and I'm always getting stuck under the boardwalks in Graystone <img src="/smilies/136dd33cba83140c7ce38db096d05aed.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

It doesn't really count as a village, but I love being in Qeynos Harbor. I really need a bigger place, but I hate to leave because it's so convenient to everything. I love decorating and messing with my apartment and it's fun to zone out, jump the rail and be just a few steps from the dock and minutes from almost anywhere I want to go. It's full of people coming and going and it feels like I live right in the big middle of all the excitement and it just has a very real immersive feel to it. It has a hustle and bustle about it that a real harbor district might have.

For Qeynos my favorite village is Willow Wood and for Freeport it is Longshadow lol but my favorite town is Kelethin <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

Somborn.  *cackle* Hehe, in all seriousness, though... all my alts still live in Stonestair Byway, which was my first (Kella is a Kerran) and one I like very much.  Kella lives in a 5-room in South Freeport but all the others are in Stonestair still.  I quite like it.  (I also loved living in East Freeport but alas, the 2-room house just wasn't cutting it anymore.)

<p>Nettleville Hovel.  Simply because, like most of you, it was my first home.  </p><p>Even today when in Qeynos most of my time is spent there.  Although my house on my main is in SQ, my bind point is still Nettleville, I still do all my crafting, banking, repairing, brokering, etc. there.</p>

I like living tombs! Sure, it lacks a mender, and perhaps a vendor. Maybe it doesn't have a broker, bank or housing. Fine, it doesn't have anything really, but it looks really good! Another one for Village of Shin, and Somborn would be a nice place to live too. For the real villages, Willow Wood, the freeport ones reuse too much I think.

Wake up! It's just Nettleville now. Hovel was removed with the release of EOF. I have 9 gals. 7 live in Nettleville. 1 is forced to live in Kelethin, being a fae and the 9th is a ratonga who lives in Temple Street.</p><p>Nettleville FTW <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

I have to pick Willow Wood. The TS instance is right outside the bank and the Mail Klosk is right around the corner all close together. Plus I like the scenery.

It's not really a "village", but Haven is one of the coolest place to [temporarily] stay. If it had housing, which would give you more than one broker slot, it'd be the best place to permanently live and call home. It may not be graphically top-tier, but it's <b>functional, simplistic, lag-free</b> and has <u>absolutely the best background music in the game</u>...which is a must if you're going to be doing things like TSing, pricing your wares on the broker, cleaning up quests, etc... It also has convenient exits to TS and Nek Forest. (with evac, you're at the docks)

Willow Woods!!  It is pretty and friendly... I really hated to give up my home there, when I needed a larger place<img src="/smilies/c30b4198e0907b23b8246bdd52aa1c3c.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  I wish they would add larger homes in some of the original "Home Towns" .

<p>Baubbleshire hands down just update the EQ1 Rivervale Midi for the ambient music</p><p>My first toon started in Greystone Yard, and I was on a min spec comp and kept lagging and getting stuck under the wooden ramps. Not fun.</p>
