  1. Incidentally, you can also play EQ2EX just for the housing for free with surprising success. Your expansion accesses carry over from live, so you can get at all the crafted housing stuff. Many of the other furniture items come from world events that are available to a very low level character. Yes, you’ll need to obtain the minimal gold needed to purchase the home, and yes, your bagspace will be limited, but those are relatively small prices to pay for getting the best housing system on the market without paying a dime (regardless of whether you’re doing so to avoid giving SOE any money as a matter of principle).

    Now that, is a fantastic idea. Like I’ve been saying in all of my posts, I have no issue with RMT or the station market or anything like that, my issues revolve around the fact that I already pay $14.99/m and dislike having to pay extra on top of that. Playing a free-to-play (or Freemium) version of the game gets rid of that issue, and in fact I lower my expectations a great amount because hey, it’s “free”. Wrong way to think? Maybe. But it would satisfy those housing cravings I have.

    So tonight I created Stargrace on the EQ2X server. We’ll see where this adventure goes.

    When I started playing EQ2 I didn’t even know there was housing. When I learned about it I thought: “Nice, but .. not for me. Looks like it is boring and pointless”.
    Then I got my first house and I had a blast decorating it! My three-room Kelethin home soon got too small, so I bought the biggest house in Freeport I could get and spent hours and hours placing furniture and decorations, visited countless houses to marvel at what people did with their homes and collected everything I could to put in my house.
    Never thought, I had it in me, but housing definitely is one of the coolest, greatest and most rewarding features in EQ2 or any game. And I miss it a little, too.

    I agree. I love player housing! While I’ve only played a little EQ2 over the years, they did a nice job with their housing. I spent more time in LotRO with both guild housing and my own personal hobbit hole. I loved crafting things for my home and decorating. Not sure why more games don’t work to incorporate at least guild housing. It gives you something to do when you want to spend time in game but not necessarily in the mood for active questing and such.
