I guess it's fine for decorators and those who care about housing. Is there nothing else?

NM - didn't see the small link to the rest of the rewards. Ah, repeating the wand of forgiveness. And bunch of appearance gear. The TS vitality will come in handy if leveling a crafter.

Just a house?

Grats to the small portion of the player base that go ga-ga over decorating I guess.

I only have 6 years and 7 months due to having to cancle my account because I was leaving on deployment to Afghanistan. Is there any way that I can get those few months added back to my account?

Thanks

Best vet reward ever!  /swoon

But I do hope there is something for the non-decorating crowd SMILEY.

You will always find someone who will complain about 6 years of stuff for them and now an amazing house for the others.  Ignore them, they did not get enough sleep or something.  This is probably one of the nicest vet rewards and I can't wait till I hit the 7 year mark. SMILEY

Yup, it's a house.  It's a lovely house.  It's a wonderful house.

Folks that are into houses will be overwhelmed with glee.  Folks who aren't into houses, will of course be underwhelmed.

If this is all there is to the 7 year reward - don't be too hard on the folks that feel like they got nothing (which includes myself) - because for those who are not into housing, or not planning on moving, that's kinda exactly what they got.

(I'm still hoping there will be more)

This. While I'm not one to say no to something that's essentially free (nevermind the monthly fees that require this gift), I can safely say that if this is all that's given in the 7-Year package, you will disappoint a whole lot of people.

I don't even know what to say about this. It's a great reward for people who care about housing and decorating... Wait, not even a great reward, it's an EPIC reward for those people who like housing and decorating. Then there's me... Been playing for 6 plus years, and all my toons are still in there one bedroom apartments in their starting cities. I simply dump all the house items in there to get them out of my inventory and go there to use my aa mirror or refresh my blessings & miracles. So I guess huge gratz for those folks who are into housing. Kind of makes me a sad panda tbh, but I'm glad at least some folks are happy with this.

WOW, that is just insane! I'm not a decorator, I barely spend any time in my house at all, but that place is crazy nice. I'm super impressed, someone(or a group of people) went above and beyond the call here. THANKS!! Well...thanks in a year and a half for me that is haha.

I'll echo what others have said.  Very disappointing.  But grats to the house lovers out there.

Epic indeed!  When I returned to the game I didnt try to reactivate an old account from 2005 because I couldn't remember anything but the username and I knew all I had left on it when I left was a lvl 7 bruiser.  Other toons had been moved to the exchange servers and found new homes.  Right now I'm kicking myself so hard for not taking the extra time to recover that old account.  I'd have been so much closer than now to this house.

Nevermind the free upkeep, and most likely 5 broker boxes for free (which is what the Skyblade Skiff offers). It means you'll never hear people complaining that you didn't pay your rent, lol.

Oh /cry! I am only at 3 yrs or so lol

I love it! I'm not even really into decorating and I haven't been into my own house in a while, but I think this is too amazing. I love the style! and the outside balcony is neat-o!

I only wish I was closer to receiving it.

Speaking of that, do we not get time bonuses for expansions anymore? The last bonus i got was RoK, so I guess not?? SMILEY

I am not a decorator, and I don't think I will have the time to decorate that... so maybe I won't even /claim mine. But, in any case, I have to say that:A) Awesome veteran reward. Probably the best one ever. Very nice one. Awesome roleplaying value. Lots of hours of fun for a lot of people...

B) But I do hope there will be something for the non decorators like me included with the vet reward pack SMILEY

Veteran rewards are one per character. So each of your characters can have one.

I'm pleased, but not sure if I'm going to give it up for my Skyblade.  I'll have to see what it looks like first.

Will we be able to change wall ceiling and floor textures the way we could in the original home models or will we be locked in to what someone else thinks is nice?

Not saying it isn't an epic reward and all, just want to know if its going to be as lame as the rest of the housing options with the exception of Freeport and Qeynos. Been seeing a lot of lazy programing as of late.

Sorry, but this 7 year veteran is absolutely lame compared to 6 year veteran reward.

Disappointment.

I am in awe of this house and cant wait till early November to claim this!  Maybe something will be thrown in for those that are not into housing but on a personal level, I will be thrilled with this alone!!!  Thanks so much; it looks wonderful.
