You aren't going to start talking in 3rd person now, are you Fencers?
Smooches, sweetie.LoL, I like to pull your chain. <3 I was watching someone stream some original EQ btw wow it looks so dated and people are still passionately playing it obviously means it was a great game. Sorry to de-rail I'm done now.
Did someone says Sims 3 House decoration in GW2? Yes, yes please.
I love just creating houses, not playing any characters, but creating houses in Sims 3, especially with all dlc's.
Who is John Galt?
My favorite housing system worked in that manner. One could even teleport to their home from anywhere in the world instantly.
I found it to the ideal above all others. No building, blueprints, mixing or crafting whatsoever.
PS: Teleporting back to your house from anywhere in the world would be great, especially if you have the option to drag your party (they could accept/decline like going into any instanced area) so they could come with!
I would assume Anet would copy the company I used to work for since they basically copied the gems/gold and gasha system. By which I mean you would get a "basic" house in game for free. Where more elaborate layouts cost gems. Additional furnishings sold in gem shop too.
It was possible to do this in my former MMO as well.Teleporting back to your house from anywhere in the world would be great, especially if you have the option to drag your party (they could accept/decline like going into any instanced area) so they could come with!
A house could also have a "guest list" and a public or private listing. Guests you designated could enter leave your house freely. And you could set permissions per guest as to what they could do in a house. &/or one could list their house publicly, allowing any one to walk in and sight-see.
You could have NPC employees too. Like maids, pets and staff. Personal crafting stations, storage and auction house access.
This sort of robust housing have been around for years already.
Edit: I get what you said. You just want it not to be exclusively in the gem shop? But again takes us to the same place where it def would cost gold to do it, which doesn't matter that much if in gem shop or not (maybe fluctuating values?).
I don't really care much for this feature but I would def use it when it's there. I never played that feature in any a game (besides The sims and minecraft... XD)
