    I cannot stress this enough. There is no way the above is true. Its contradictory.

    Ain't no one who allegedly farmed a house in a week is not a farmer or a geek. Sorry.

    Also, if you did this when it was released, I call BULL SHIIIIIIIIT

    I was a longtime player of UO and love housing in MMO's. I can state why -I- wanted a house in UO.

    1) A safe place (to macro or be afk)
    .... Pre-trammel UO had few safe spots and lots of PvP. If you were AFK in a city, you were more vulnerable to thieves because you had to say "Guards!" when you spotted the text informing you about being picked. You also couldn't generally macro in cities. Many players would build a house near a dungeon or mine so they got a safe spot near location of itnerest.
    2) A place to put your vendor to make money in the economy
    .... This was a major reason to buy a house. It was also important to have your house be neary a gate or near a city so others would find your vendor.
    3) A place you can be proud of with your friends
    .... It was an opportunity to feel pride in a shared vision, since the keeps/castles would be the work of several players.
    4) A way to share your things with your friends
    .... One of the things I did was have a chest with gold and donated items for my friends to use.
    5) Another way to express yourself to others
    .... Sine housing wasn't instanced, it was another way to express yourself to the masses. Very important.
    6) A way to roleplay
    ... A few made inns and would shoot fireworks and do gambling.

    UO's housing system was extensive. Most MMO's don't evne come close to the variety it had. I think the major reason is its hybrid sandbox-PvP nature was so complex. It had so many levels. This is also why it created a lot of pain for the developers and players. So many MMO's now instance it and there's no hte PvP/macro elements. It's a lot simpler, but less magical.

    I know MMO's can't do everything. I know it's hard. They have to make choices.

    Having two binds, one for your own house and one for a friend's house would be sick.

    House respawn point + house safe = actual bank has made houses kinda valuable. Not sure what more can be done, I think we need to wait until TCS 2.0 to see what happens.

    Liandri had 7 houses when the bulk of us quit. Then crafted 3 more and now 1 more since then. We did it as a guild, to build them in key locations for transport around the map, but that's not really as important now with portal networks and runebooks. It's still definitely doable though, even though they nerfed the Namlit spawn after us, we still did it some more.

    As Sero said though, going to have to wait for the expansion to know fully, I think

    A week is easy, we did it in less than a week when you needed all the other bullshit too.

    There is no way that I log into these forums for the first time in like a year and I am getting replies to this thread 10 minutes ago. I must be missing something.

    Anyways, point still stands, I cant fathom someone got a house deed in a week at launch without being a farmer or a geek.

    Unless they exploited.

    Come back and I will give you a cottage. I will also show you how and where to farm house mats quickly / efficiently

    I got a house, two cottages and a large villa deed in a relatively short period of time. But i’m also a geek who likes to play the market though

    Having your own bank access at your house is worth it alone to be able to live out of it... I'm surprised more spots aren't taken, my house is the difference between me making it back to a siege/fight faster and it has saved me many of times!

    It's not just the rare mats alone that make housing ridiculous. Look at something like villa in standard mats. 15000 Oak Planks(37500 timber), 7500 Iron ingots(18750 ore), and 25000 stone. This seems unnecessarily high.

    It would help if, for example, the cost of a house wasn't double the cost of a cottage, even though the benefits of a house are nowhere near double.

    Some of us are playing with other clans.

    I think a lot of us (and maybe a lot of the player base) is waiting for the next big expansion to give it another whirl.

    Just speaking for myself and my opinion here.

    How about just reducing the material costs for housing other than cottages? Why does a house need to be double the cost of a cottage?
