<p><span><p>I was just reading the <a href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=324435" target="_blank">wishlist</a> and an idea popped up.</p><p>For plenty of the decorators, the ingame housing is a big reason we play this mmo instead of others. But still we are a smaller community inside the bigger EQ2 community.</p><p>To keep the game alive SOE has to make choices for priorities for their programmers. Expansions, Raid content, PVP content etc are most important to keep the game making profit so most of the developing resources will go there. Of course, they do like the decorator scene and often add stuff for us to work with, but it is probably secondary.</p><p>So... what if we made it primary? What if we let them know there are enough people that would pay for certain house items and/or enhancements to make it worth for them to assign more developing time to that content? They already add the occasional nice stuff like house item expanders, pets etc to the marketplace, so lets point them to things that aren't available yet but we would pay for if they were.</p><p>And try to keep it as simple as possible, if it's easy to make, you increase the chances <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" /></p></span></p>

<p><span><p>Me first I guess <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" /></p><p>I know there are a few things I would pay station cash for for sure. I have to work hard to earn that money, but if it will make my hobby so much more fun for some things it would be worth it for me.</p><p>- ingame rotation around all 3 axis instead of just 2, it already exists, just needs an interface, I'd pay for that interface. Right-CTRL mousewheel for example. Savefile editing works but for many people it's too complex to be fun and editing numbers for longer times is a pain anyway.</p><p>- triangle shaped objects, I'd pay to unlock a quest or faction thingy for them, but not for every single triangle</p><p>- an instance with just a sky, an endless floorplane and nothing else, with the ability of choosing the instance entrance (from a list of all existing house entrances), the floorplane and background sky of any existing instance (any, not just housing instances, I want my bonemire sky <img src="../images/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" /> ). And a very high vertical limit. Sounds so simple to make but <span style="font-size: medium; color: #00ccff;">I'd pay </span><span style="font-size: medium; color: #00ccff;">A LOT</span><span style="font-size: medium; color: #00ccff;"> for that</span>.</p><p>- more teleporters per house</p><p>- larger scaling unlock so we need less roomdividers/floortiles for bigger things (=less items, less lag etc)</p><p>- a non roaming version of exisiting roaming pets like pigs, ducks, turkeys etc</p></span></p>

<p>A pretty little tea set. I really want a tea pot, cups, cream and sugar.</p><p>Also, not housing related, but more wings. I adore the SOL wings, but I'm 34/0 and it's hard to find people who want to go to SOL anymore.  There is a plethora of "evil" wings and only one pair of "pretty/good" wings. If SOE ever puts a gorgeous pair of twinkly angel wings like SOL on the marketplace, I will buy them so fast!</p>

<p>Hmm...  While getting ingame items for a fee is reasonable for many, it should not define how I get to enjoy the game.</p><p>Raiders do not have to buy instances or rewards for quests... Adventurers do not have to purchase animals to fill the zones to kill... Why should I have to buy (with my real money, even though I also support the game with my monthly fee) items for my home, which has already been provided as <em><strong>part</strong></em> of the game?</p><p>I should not have to spend extra coin on <strong>features</strong> of the game (beyond what might be a one-time, fabulous, yet extraneous item for pure EXTRA enjoyment) Examples are the wings you can buy, funny seasonal backpacks...</p><p>These items do not define aspects of the game and are not making one race, class or person able to enjoy the game any better than a person who does not own one...</p><p>As Tradeskillers, Decorators and Craftspeople, we should not be required to 'fund' our playstyles with items not readily available for EVERYONE's enjoyment, not just those with cash floating around... I surely do not have an expendable income... Though I have purchased select items from SC-Marketplace, I do not wish it to become the deciding factor in making my playstyle as enjoyable as possible...</p><p>Was that too harsh? I mean it <em>soley</em> as <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>my</strong></span> view and as what I am willing to pay as far as my time in Norrath is spent.</p><p>(edited for typo)</p><p>My, apparently, 3 and a half cents <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /></p>

<p>No not too harsh and very understandable.</p><p>The thing is, we are a small minority so also a minor part of development time can be assigned to us. If we like it or not, that's how companies have to work.</p><p>I also would prefer if they'd just added 3 axis rotation for everyone of course. But since we are asking for that for years, maybe this way will work better. At least a thread like this could give the developers who would probably love to make all this if they could get the resources and time, something to show their manager.</p>

<p>I would pay for a "warehouse"  I don't want to create an alt to just hold items and have that alt have the largest house available, solely to hold items in a house/vault/broker boxes/bank. </p><p>I'd love it if we could purchase an extra building for our crafters.  One that only they go into to get "stock".</p><p>I agree though, I'd rather not be forced to pay real $$ for in-game items (although I have received some as gifts - from my wonderful hubby, as a small "love you" gift).</p>

<p>All due respect, and I COMPLETELY understand where you're coming from on not wanting to pay, but I think you've slightly derailed the thread.  Put yourself in a universe where you'd be willing to pay for something, what would it be? </p><p>Mad Respect...</p><p>O.M.</p>

In game rotation 3 axis....I WOULD REALLY PAY FOR THAT and for the warehouse...no doubt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

<p>When it comes to actual items, I'd rather just see them come from within the game. There's not really anything specific I'd pay for in that area, except perhaps, plates and such - since I'm not a big fan of grinding the halfling quest. :p I could see offering a plate/bowl/cup/silverware set or something like that. However, non item things? I'd be willing to pay for just an empty plot to decorate. They could make a few different designs (forest, jungle, beach, etc). More teleporters would also be neat. More storage is always good, too.</p>

<p>I'd pay for a guild hall item limit expander.  I'll never be able to satisfactorily finish my mega-project without more to work with.</p><p>As long as the item description clearly states that any guild leader purchasing said item would be purchasing it for the guild and not for themselves, and would not be able to reclaim it or take it back once applied to said guild (even if they relinquish leadership or leave altogether), there shouldn't (it seems to me) be any issue of ownership.</p><p>I've leveled a solo guild up to 60.  It's mine and mine alone.  I would love to use a guild hall item limit expander in the hall to properly finish it.</p>

<p>I'll not pay for random house items, but I would pay for a warehouse and guild hall expander. After all, it's extra database storage so paying real cash for it makes sense.</p><p>What I would LOVE to see on the station cash, are house items from old in-game events that don't exist anymore. Exemples : fires of tranquillity/anguish (shard of hate launching event), the deity items from the deity prequests before EoF (and yes, I have all the evil ones in my house), the bowl of bertoxxulous and the one with leaves from the pre-TSO questline. This kind of thing would make those old items once more available and it would be nice to have an option to get them back on the SC.</p>

Gzelle
11-25-2010, 10:40 AM
<p>I agree with Whil...I would actually pay for a Bowl of Growth(?).  I missed that event and have kicked myself ever since.  Also would actually pay for a replica of the griffin towers, </p>

<p>First thing I would like to see is teleporters, like the ones from the live events. I hate the fact that I didn't grind out enough florets or other tokens to buy them then and would really love some for my alts.</p><p>Next, I would like to see more furniture packages. I love some of the furniture thats on there now, but I dont want to have to buy it piece by piece, although I do like being able to pick which pieces I do want.</p><p>Then, maybe some racial themed furniture, like the fae furniture you get from the gfay newbie line. Maybe something that's leafy and more intune with nature. I can see people using this as maybe patio furniture.</p><p>On the note of patio furniture, we have been given these wonderful outdoor areas, and no new outdoor furniture to decorate with. I wouldn't mind having a nice patio set with an umbrella covered table, I hate having to use the editor to make these things then have my item count eaten up by them.</p><p>Just a thought.</p>

<p>i got few wishes i do like to see...</p><p>i agreed with "retired" event items such as griffin tower miniatures, i got one on my main, but my alts never had the chances to do those live events that keep vanished or not high level enough.</p><p>ooh, 3-axis turning would be great, i havent tried layout editor, you cant tell which floor tiles in different rooms, too easy to pick a wrong one and have to pick up and reset, logging/saving files take massive amount of time.</p><p>i would buy a "Secret Room vault" or a "Planar Dimension" zones for extra room and new decoration ideas.</p><p>i also would buy "Warehouse" or hope for increased bank vault, since we get no new increased slots for Destiny of Velious until we get new 90-100 lvl cap raised.</p><p>station's marketplace had become very ridiculous overflooded, our storages isnt feastable, not even for alts/mules.</p><p>we need bigger packbacks and strongboxes.</p><p>last one, a real "armor" stands, not those manniquins that just for dressing up since we got dress window panel, just want a real stands that will help clear out those armors in bank.</p><p>oh, by the way, i just remembered, "item potion" make those "Fabled" shields into house items, please, please? i really hate to transmuting and i want to avoid much i can.</p>

<p>I would like to see the option to change the floors in guildhalls, the way you can in a house - though I don't think this should be a station marketplace option.  If it has to be I guess I can live with that.  But it would be nice to have solid colors, marble, etc.  It is an insane amount of tiles to get the floors covered and there is already quite a limit on house items as it is without adding 300 floor tiles.As to the station marketplace, I would very much like to be able to purchase the teleport pads.  Often times people get interested in having their house decorated without knowing that these teleport pads were ever in game.  It makes it tougher to give people what they wan't when it comes to housing when they don't have teleport pads for breaking out.  I don't want to use all of mine for someone else's house as I only got enough for my own homes that I already own.</p>

I am surprised more people dont mention the 3 axis rotation as something they would pay for. Although the layout editor is fantastic it still is a pain to use and you have to go back and forth a lot etc. Well if nobody wants it I CERTAINLY DO........willing to pay DEFINITELY.

If others would, that's fine, I realize the editor isn't for everyone... but, personally, it's not on my marketplace wishlist. Honestly though, if they were going to add it in to the game I'd much rather see it there for everyone, not something to be paid for. (I'm sure someone could say that about anything listed in this thread, of course...)</p>

No one (dev like) has posted a limit on that.</p><p>I second the ability to purchase a pocket dimension for furniture storage! The ability to use the moving crate is great but my current hang up is actually the moving items from different 'toons and I don't store anything unless it's no-trade or heirloom...</p>

<p>Personally i dont see why we have to pay anything more for new stuff. I understand that the dev team is stretched thin but it seems silly. Maybe they should just develop an interface for carpenters that lets us make our own items lol most of us understand how 3d works. I'm sure most of us could figure out how to use a smaller version of solidworks or something. I mean, and i've thought this for a long time now, carpenters in game arent really carpenters. In real life carps don't make plants or vases or big stone blocks. They make wood items and building materials that can be used to make stuff. If we had a way to make our own stuff from scratch i'd pay for that. We wouldnt have to use editors and the devs wouldnt have to keep making stuff for us. We could just do it all ourselves and share stuff with eachother. Which brings me to what i really would pay for.</p><p>I'd pay for an instance all of my own similar to the moonlight enchantments or just a peice of land somewhere of my choosing. With the aforementioned ability we could then build whatever the hell we wanted. I'd love to be able to design my own log cabin or castle. I'd like to be able to design my own building blocks to build whatever i want. This having to twist things upside down with an external program is a bunch of crap. I want an in game editor that allows you to rotate, shrink, expand, contort, skew, and change patterns/colors of objects. I'd buy that.</p><p>ps.. it'll never happen but this is a wishlist afterall <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/e8a506dc4ad763aca51bec4ca7dc8560.gif" border="0" /></p>

<p>I would pay for</p><p>1. A blank floor tile and wall divider with a slider for color choices. (Like the one for hair or eyecolor). This would be a recipe that would be unlimited, but heirloom. That way we could make walls and floors exactly the color that we need.</p><p>2. New hairstyles... I would love some new choices for all my toons. There has to be a way to put those in, and it would cause me to maybe buy a few new toons <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /></p><p>3. A Shiney Eating bear..or something like it... I missed the preorder and really would like one of those.</p><p>4. Frostfell Clothes that are a bit more like the NPC's...striped stockings, a short skirt with a cute pair of mittens. like Queen Bunny!</p><p>Thanks for this opportunity!</p>

<p>Hmmm....interesting thread to be sure. I would really hate to see the getting new house items end up being through station cash, but to go along with the spirit of this thread I would have to say.....</p><p>Let me turn an item any which way. That would be fantastic. Not sure if that is something that you could sell frommarketplace or that is a do it or not do it kind of implication.</p><p>The Tea Set idea is wonderful, as are some pretty dishes. You have these wounderful designed dishes to holdcookies and such, and the only plates we can get are plain white. I would pay for teleport pads to be sure formy toons that dont have them. I think the station cash items should be few and special things.</p><p>I think we crafters and decorators, and I believe there are alot more of us than you may think should get a bitmore in the way of earning special items for our houses. This should be something that is not depended say ongroup instances. I cant tell you how frustrating it is that the vigilant mission has all these wonderful house itemsto get but no one ever wants to do that instance. Give us a different way to earn them, maybe through faction.</p><p>Oh, there is another thing I would pay for....cans of paint so I can paint my house.</p>

<p>The ability to purchase a second (third, fourth, etc) home. To have more than one home on a character at a time would be worth quite a bit to me. They let you purchase more character slots, why not multiple homes?</p><p>Someone else mentioned a warehouse. Um yeah, I would ABSOLUTELY KILL for a 2,000 or 3,000 slot warehouse with items accessible through a broker board type interaction or house vault type interaction so I could access it right from the house I am currently decorating in whether it is a house I own or someone else's house.</p>

I would really like to have the Shadow Oak from Darklight Wood as a home...well bigger but definitely in that style...I think I would pay for that...but I have to admit I'm afraid what they would charge for a whole house on the marketplace, hopefully they wouldn't go too crazy on us. In the same realm of purchasing housing, I would be willing to Purchase housing in New Tunaria.

<p>the things i want more than anything would be more storage space and frostfell tables for my home would also be something I would pay real cash for, hell I might even kill for them just send me a name and address and we can work out the details =).</p><p>edit  I would also be happy if you won't give us more storage spaces let us at least be able to use the furniture shelves in out bank and carry them. That alone would free up TONS of space on my poor carp =(</p>

<p><span ><span style="color: #ffffff;"> </span><p>First, I do have to agree that it rubs the wrong way to think the only way to get wishlist item or really draw attention to them is to offer to pay for them on marketplace. That said, here are my little wishlist items.</p><p>I would LOVE to have a warehouse, as mentioned in this thread already. Something to store all my decorating items that I could access from whatever house or guild I was decorating, perhaps with a /slash command. Warehouse, vault, additional page on the character/inventory window, something. A packing crate does essentially function this way, but is tied to a specific house. A packing crate type of thing linked to the character as opposed to a specific house, and an item count to make it truly useable as a warehouse. House items take up an immense amount of storage space in banks, and you can only hold so much in your own inventory. Having someplace all of it could go, that could be accessed with a selective kind of interface (wherever the character is located) to look through and select from the contents would be FANTASTIC!!!</p><p>Another big wishlist item for me would be a set of Frostfell crafting tables I could place in my home, guild hall, or in whichever house I'm decorating in would be equally fantastic. Yep, I'd have to store all the components and fuel just like any other holiday craftables, but at least that would bring Frostfell in line with all the other in-game holidays/events and allow the Frostfell items to be crafted "off season" and outside the instance anytime year round.</p><p>Garland of various types, window curtains, valances, and drapes, the ability to craft floor and wall tilesand panels and select the finish, color, and textural appearance, the ability to change the color of bedding and pillows, the ability to craft more structural building block type items and select their finish, color and textural appearance, heck, the ability to change the color and textural appearance of pretty much any craftable house item to match a scheme, or another piece of furniture.</p></span></p>

<p>I'd pay for a "decorator" character slot...</p><p>At character creation make a Decorator option.  Choosing this option would disable combat but make available a series of options such as:</p><p>Neutral status in order to decorate in any city; Sorting capabilities with drop down menus; Additional storage and of course a transport directly to the storehouse when needed.  Oh yeah, rotation on all axis too.</p>

I think the idea of a "decorator" slot is awesome Faraha, With the neutral status and other things just for decorators. Brilliant idea.....definitely would go for that.

<p>I am not a fan of SC either but I would make an exception for a warehouse as suggested here.</p><p>The idea of a "decorator" character slot isn't a bad one too.</p><p>They could be a new race that I wil l dub... Freedecorator!</p><p>Their lore could be something like this:</p><p>"The City Festivals were always an example of mercantilism at its best. Adventurers would do a variety of tasks for coin which in turn would be spent on Far Seas Supply goods. This was a system that was proving to be popular as more and more adventurers each month would seek the festival.</p><p>To everyone's surprise though, things start to take a dark turn.... People traveling to the current festival would be found out unsconcious on the roads. Near them would be found an assortment of furniture and a copy of <a href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=491177" target="_blank">The Book</a>. Days later that same people would get a strange turn urge to decorate their houses.</p><p>Rumors started circulating that the Far Seas Supply were somehow helping these so-called "decorators" by providing them with furniture. Worse yet, the rulers of the world also knew all about them and let these people roam freely in their cities!</p><p>But the true danger was still unknown to the Norrathian population.... A new breed of decorators were borning in the darkest corners of the internet (also known as "forums") and they were planning to take over Norrath, one house at a time. They called themselves Freedecorators as they would ignore any city, faction, class or race restriction. No matter where a decoration would be needed, they would go there.  They would not rest until all of Norrath would be beautifully decorated! To turn all norrathians into fellow Freedecorators!</p><p>Thus the terror began...."</p>

<p>I would pay SC for:</p><p>1. <span style="color: #ff0000;"> Decorator Teleportation Orb</span>:  Add Decorator Access to all home/guild halls in addition to Visitor, Friend and Trustee. The Decorator Access would allow use of <span style="color: #ff0000;">a teleporation orb purchased through SC</span> allowing them to port to any home/guild hall that they have Decorator Access of regardless of location.</p><p>2.  <span style="color: #ff0000;">3000 slot "Warehouse Instance"</span>: - Personal Instance Zone consisting of walls, floor, roof only with warehouse dimensions.  No rooms, locked down so no ability to "break-out" with the same ability of assigning access but limited to self/trustee and decorator access". Any toon with assigned access would use <span style="color: #ff0000;">the Warehouse Instance purchased through SC </span>in their main decorators house to enter the instance.</p><p>3. <span style="color: #ff0000;"> "Warehouse Door"</span>: Access to an assigned (trustee/decorator) access Warehouse Instance via a warehouse door placed in your home.  Any toon with <span style="color: #ff0000;">a Warehouse Door purchased through SC</span> can enter a Warehouse Instance for which they have access via a drop-down menu.  In this way the multiple alts of a Decorator could access their own Warehouse and if available the storing Warehouse of another player's home, they have been commissioned to decorate.  The "door" should be far less expensive then the warehouse allowing one account to be able to purchase multiple doors if desired.</p><p>4.  <span style="color: #ff0000;">Paintings</span>: The original EQ1 Veteran Paintings from EQ2 launch.</p><p>5. <span style="color: #ff0000;"> Antonia Bayle, Luclan De Lere and Fiornia Vie Statues</span>.</p><p>6.  <span style="color: #ff0000;">Freeport Warrior and Nagafen at Rest Statues</span>.</p><p>I would not pay SC for the following which should be added to game via live events, game updates, expansion, etc:</p><p>1.  <span style="color: #ff0000;">XYZ access</span> - Many will continue to use the layout editor which allows more precise placement of an object but it has clearly been established that XYZ rotation is not negatively affecting game play and therefore should be unlocked.</p><p>2. <span style="color: #ff0000;"> Teleporation pads</span> - Should be added to the roving city festivals and the home usage should be increased for use in homes, incremintally if necessary based on vault slots but increased all the same throughout.</p><p>3.  <span style="color: #ff0000;">Home Decor</span> - Dishes, flatware, hangers, more mannequin choices etc should NOT be SC but should be included in quests and recipes.</p><p>4. <span style="color: #ff0000;">Bowl of Growth, Gong of War, Pick of the Underfoot, Spear of Sentries, Pool of Tranquility</span> should be on faction merchants with scaleable buffs.</p><p>Also the <em>Decorators Lore</em>...is priceless! <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /></p>

<p>I would gladly purchase dresses that would allow me to wear shoes! While it is possible to grind enough crafting faction to get a skirt that allows shoes it would be nice to have more options.</p>

<p>I consider myself as a "housingplayer", whatever i do in Norrath, no matter which char- everything comes down to decorating. If i had to choose one game to play forever without option of trying or playing any other game again, i would leave my WoW acc (on which i spent more than a year real time (!!)), even if it would mean everything there gets deleted- to sum up, housing as it is is to me like a "Dollhouse Deluxe" and i haven't found anything thats i like more than being creative here.</p><p> I would pay for:</p><p>-Choosable Floor/Wall/Ceiling (is that the right spelling?) for all homes, just like the Freeport/Qeynos Homes have</p><p>-More white or cream colored options, its pretty strange that Freeport has white walls as an option, but the qeynos homes don't- the white one in FP is the only option to have a bright home with good working lights, no matter what i do, the Qeynos home of my Carpenter stays darker... (if someone steals my white Fp walls i'll go berserk)</p><p>- further itemlimit expanders-stackable, f.e. you pay 10 € get 200 more slots, if they are full, you can spend another 10 €  to raise the limit again and so on.</p><p> I moved my main 8 days ago to the biggest non-guildhall-home in NordFp , sorted out alot of stuff, started collecting and decorating for Frostfall and guess what- i'm around 750/800 Items, and i'm not even finished with getting all the stuff i'm gonna need ( forks, knifes,plates, spoons, candles for the dining table...).</p><p> As an Arasai i have to scale everthing down a bit, otherwise my char just looks lost in the house, i wouldn't feel  comfortable living with furniture i can't even look over. (narf i hope that you understand what i mean >.&lt<img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> I even blocked  some rooms off to leave them empty- still the limit is to low, and there a plenty of things i'd love to build - the limit  prevents me from doing it. I would also go grinding,questing, harvesting (like the qs for plates,forks etc in TS Docks) -  hell, this would be a great reason to try to smoke less in order to have the extra money for more decorating space.</p><p>- A warehouse would be i nice option too, but i'd prefer if i could just use everything i own. But would certainly be on my   "things i'd like to buy"list if avaible.</p><p>-fauctes/taps/water taps (i looked @ dict.cc, german word is Wasserhahn) would be very nice, but i'd prefer them if they  were craftable. Currently i'm using sconces as a substitute, but hiding the light is sometimes a bit difficult.</p><p>-teleporters which can be placed additional to the allowed 4</p><p>-last but not least: What about an optional,official Layouting application?Maybe with support? To me that would be worth 20-25 € once, i can also alternativly imagine spending 50 cent- 1 € extra each month , if that gets me an better editor (and non-screwed layout files, german client produces Layout files with endless code-salad instead of proper names for most of the house items, making it more difficult to find specific items. </p>

<p>Of the things mentioned, I would love most the ability for one toon to own more than one house - you could do this like the item limit item- one price to have two more houses another price to have 4 more houses, etc.  Alternatively, you could just have a price per house, up to a certain limit.</p><p>I would also love the warehouse for storage, accessable from any house like house vault storage, and I would love for the items to be able to stack, like they do in broker storage. </p><p>I also like the idea of the decorator toon slot.</p><p>It would be nice if you could buy a house scaled to the size of the race.  Reading the post above, it sure would be nice if they could buy a house scaled to their size.  That would help with the item limit perhaps, and would definitely help with the "feel" of the house to them.  I think this however, should be a feature added in the game, not sold on the SC.</p><p>I think they should add the old event items that are no longer in game to the anniversary event they have each year, they could add in quests that simulate something associated with the item. </p><p>Alternatively, they could do this as one of the adventure packs (that they don't make anymore).  Make adventure packs that are quests associated with the time the old items were in game or with something about the lore of the item and then sell the adventure packs in SC.  I would really love to do the old quests associated with events.  I started in summer of 2008 and missed so many events.  Heck, I would even like to repeat some of the events I did participate in.  The quests were written and hopefully are still available to the programmers. I think this might be a popular item.  Especially if the quests gave experience and aa the first time done.  It would be great if these adventure pack quests were repeatable to increase playability of them.  Of course no exp or aa after the first time through. </p>

<p>I would pay serious money for a 700+ item count home on the vigilant and I would pay even more money for an extensive vigilant furniture package.</p><p>I would prefer the furniture was craftable or buyable from a faction merchant but i'm being realistic here ^_^</p>

Back at that time, I wasn't in the loop regarding world events. I only have the original ulteran spires replica because I paid a fortune for it on broker.

I have seen some really great ideas here... now I shall add my wishlist... These things I would consider buying from SC, but would love to see some of them be accessible from either quest-lines, city festival, what have you. 1. Warehouses.. I LOVE this idea... would make hanging on to seasonal decorations so much easier 2. Second homes... and third, fourth, what have you. 3. Teleport pads... with the size of the housing getting even bigger, these are quickly becoming almost a necessity. Here are a couple of things that I would like to see implemented for us decorators, hard-core and casual alike. 1. The ability to mirror objects easier. I know that you can fanangle the numbers and get almost anything to appear mirrored, but there are many items that I would like to correctly mirror, to get a sense of symmetry. 2. The ability to access certain housing from both Qeynos and Freeport, like the mistmoore crag estate. You should be able to access your toon's MM in Freeport with any of your other toons, including the Qeynos toons. When you tour the MM house, you go into the same one from those two places, why not or visitation?
