I'd like to be able to rent "apartments" in the guild house, like a 5 room apartment or whatever... not sure how to handle if it's the qeynos/freeport/neriak/maj'dul/etc versions... but unless there are rooms for rent in the guild halls I will be keeping my apartment. The rent and status paid for these apartments could be pooled to help pay for the entire guild hall.But, who knows

But what I'm really hoping for personally, is for that incredibly annoying item limit to be expanded on all current houses... by a lot. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

Current city housing will still exist for those who want to use it.  Even currently, just because 5 room houses exist doesn't mean that no one ever uses the 1 room, 2 room, 3 room, or even the 4 room houses.We don't even know yet if there will be member housing inside the Guild Hall and, anyway, you won't be forced into a guild hall if there was.Player housing will have the exact same use that it has now.

We have been waiting on guild halls for about 4 years now.  It's gotten to a point with me at least as I'll believe it when I see it.  I know it's coming someday, but then too is the end of the world someday, EEK!  Anyways, I don't ask for much, but one housing improvement I'd love to see is houses with actually windows.  Ones that you can actually see out of.  I don't need to see my friend the halfling walking across the street outside my house.  But I would like an appearance at least of something outside.  And night and day would be a nice touch.  But these too I'll believe it when I see it I guess. <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" width="15" height="15" />

When Kelethin appeared, there were citizens of Qeynos (and even Freeport) who gave up their citizenship and moved there.  Some even moved there from Maj'dul. It didn't mean that people didn't still live in Qeynos or Maj'dul (or Freeport) even though their usage dropped a little.When Neriak appeared, there were citizens of Freeport (and even Qeynos and Kelethin) who gave up their citizenship and moved there.  Some even moved there from Maj'dul. It didn't mean that people didn't still live in Freeport or Maj'dul (or Qeynos and Kelethin) even though their usage dropped a little.When Garowyn appeared, there were citizens of Freeport and Neriak (or even Qeynos and Kelethin) who gave up their citizenship and moved there.  Some even moved there from Maj'dul. It didn't mean that people didn't still live in Freeport, Neriak, or Maj'dul (or even Qeynos and Kelethin) even though their usage dropped a little. So.... why will the addition of Guild Halls, even if they have member housing, necessitate a concern for current city housing?Guilds probably won't have to have a "placeholder" character to own a large house any more which will be nice for the leader or designated member who has to use a character slot for that character.  Frankly, I'm surprised none of them are complaining about all the status they had to obtain as -that- character to make the initial buy "going to waste" with a change to Guild Halls.
