View Full Version : Eslina's Waterfall Top Home (Halas breakout)

04-28-2011, 03:38 PM
<p>The house is listed under Eslina on Everfrost at the LoN Halas house (small door near the crafting area). I feel very lucky to have gotten the housing license from a free pack just in time for the release of multiple housing and prestige house portals.</p><p>Huge thanks to Daenee for posting her <a href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=490866" target="_blank">beautiful house</a>, which inspired my use of cobblestone squares with maple dividers. I knew I wanted a house at the top of the waterfall as soon as I broke out and saw the spot, but my attempts at yurts, log cabins and the like just didn't seem right for my mystic. But a little stone house? Perfect.</p><p>When you step through the portal, you'll land at the end of the bridge across the river. Like any breakout, the house will take a few minutes to load.</p><p><img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/fp57c2.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/2nm8li.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i55.tinypic.com/2d91gjq.jpg" /></p><p>Behind you, you'll see Eslina's meditation circle. I think my favorite part about this spot is the ability to sink items far into the ground, allowing me to make the snowy woods and the multi-colored flames.</p><p><img src="http://i55.tinypic.com/mx1q8w.jpg" /></p><p>Through the front door is the kitchen. It's a small, cozy room, with a view of the waterfall.</p><p><img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/2wqbghg.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i54.tinypic.com/fmne4j.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i52.tinypic.com/awqhl1.jpg" /></p><p>Through the door is the greenhouse, a necessity for a wood elf living in such a cold climate. Atop the bookshelf near the door is Eslina's shrine to her ancestors, a feature she's kept in every house she's owned.</p><p><img src="http://i51.tinypic.com/2cenhci.jpg" /></p><p>In the greenhouse, Eslina grows a fruit and vegetable garden, a flower and herb garden, and a small oak. A well allows her to water the plants without having to go outside in blizzards. Her altar to Karana is here so she can make offerings while watching storms through the windows.</p><p><img src="http://i54.tinypic.com/oprz3q.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i52.tinypic.com/i1n39g.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i51.tinypic.com/2wmncxe.jpg" /></p><p>Through the greenhouse door is the stable. There are three stalls and a loft with plenty of room to store food and hay.</p><p><img src="http://i55.tinypic.com/2s8isn7.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/w8rjnm.jpg" width="1599" height="856" /></p><p><img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/o7il40.jpg" /></p><p>Back through the kitchen and up the stairs is Eslina's bedroom and study.</p><p><img src="http://i56.tinypic.com/24brypz.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i51.tinypic.com/oigg2f.jpg" width="1599" height="856" /></p><p><img src="http://i52.tinypic.com/34gat1h.jpg" /></p><p><img src="http://i55.tinypic.com/jjofiu.jpg" /></p><p>Thanks for looking at my house! Visitors are always welcome.</p>

<p>I love how your home feels like such a warm retreat from the frozen tundra. You've done a lovely job on the architecture! I think the meditation circle is a nice touch. I really get the feeling that a mystic lives there.</p>
