A 16×16 Farm
Even though I spent a pretty sum building my first house (it requires 2 stone packs & 1 lumber pack) I decided that the land would be of better use if I had a 16×16 farm, instead of a house. I decided to take the house down and place my 16×16 farm field instead. I also wanted to create the farmer’s workstation, but I didn’t want to lose the small farm on the right hand side beside my large farm. My alt (I have 4 characters, 2 of each faction) had her 8×8 farm plan still, so what I did was sold the large farm to her, then used the large farm to craft the farmer’s workstation. She placed it, and since all of your characters can access one another’s homes / farms without having to fiddle with permissions, I’m set. I have no house, but that’s alright. I still don’t own any land on the West, but it’s not a big deal.
One thing I learned is that if you’re looking for furniture items, check Mirage Isle first. Chances are those housing items you see on the broker are vendor sold. That was the case with the fencing in the screenshot above, along with other house items like plushies, candles, furniture, and there are also a lot of recipes for sale. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Try going inside of each of the display homes, they have all sorts of goods that show up as for sale when you approach them. Glad I figured this out, I honestly had no idea and was about to buy a very over priced bed from the AH.
My Daggerspell went from level 20 to 26 without doing a single quest. Instead I spent yesterday focusing on farming and crafting (processing materials, mostly). I’m eager to save up for a clipper (and to get it built). I have the cloth portion taken care of, but stone has been hard to come by as of late. Unless you camp right beside the iron nodes, I haven’t seen too much in the wild lately.
So it has been a lot of crafting, farming, and more crafting. A perfect way to spend a gaming session, if I do say so myself. As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
