    Houses in wow?

    Ok to first state. I'm not talking about Garrisons here.

    Since I started playing this game I always thought it would be a cool idea to allow players to build their own houses.
    The idea is pretty simple and sort of revolves around Runescape rules. Have a few portals around Azeroth that you can enter alone or with a group of people.

    It could be a new secondary skill called "Woodworking"

    Pretty much to build your house you'd go around Azeroth and collect "said" items, such as wood, sand(glass), metal..etc and lvl up from collecting and crafting.
    AKA like Minecraft and the Skyrim expansion.

    You'd be able to make things like a chest(limitations of course), A target dummy, a dueling area, some cases for you display your transmog gear or armor sets and weapons, a cooking area...and other things!

    What do you guys think?
    What other idea do you have that you could craft for your house?

    Garrisons are going to be the housing of World of Warcraft. They may not be as personal as a little cozy house, but they are way more pratical. They also give our anonymous characters a higher status, since we are the ones (sort of) giving the orders now.
    English is not my first language, feel free to correct any mistake I may make.

    Oh I know man. This would be a more "for fun" side thing for wow to add in.
    People in this game tend to love customization.
    Plus maybe if you built a house and logged out in bed you'd get 250% rested xp or something. Like Skyrim.

    Well, they said something about us being able to place some boss/achievement trophies. They also talked about player statues. So customization seems to be one of their goals, just not the main one. But speculation is fun, nothing stops them from making a player house building inside the garrison after all.

    Oh yeah I know that. But everyones house will look the same and eventually everyones Garrison will be the same. The house aspect was to allow you to make something of your own. you build your house in the shape you want it.

    Yes, I think it would be a neat aspect of the game. Where everyone doesn't have the same shit.
    Transmogs where popular cause it allowed players to stand out, Custom house building could do that too. yeah?

    I don't know I think garrisons will serve it well. It kind of sucks it's going to be the same for virtually everyone on the same progress as you, but at least it's a step in the right direction

    Yeah, That's not what I'm looking for. Eventually there will be some people who will post "Best possible garrison set ups" and people will build in that direction.

    Probably sometime within the next few expansions, they originally said no houseing, yet it seems with the farm and now the garrison we are getting closer.

    I'm not interested in player housing at all. I hate to be a stick in the mud about it but to me it serves no real purpose.

    I will have to pass. Garrisons should be just fine.

    Honestly, I'm not particularly happy about Garrisons being implemented, so houses would be something I would pretty much hate.

    I get that there are people that would like this feature, I really do, but I've never liked the concept. I would rather that development time is spent on things involving gameplay and game improvements as opposed to something without real game impact.

    I only wish the garrison came with a personalized banner, much like a guild tabard, but something that flies high on flags you designed.

    There are a shit ton of things that "server no purpose" in the game. This idea was more for people who would WANT to do it. It would have a benifit. Extra storage(would cost a lot in mats and farming) Target dummies(set in boss or groups for aoe), Dueling areas for you and your friends/guild members.

    Blizzard worked on Player Housing in WoW Alpha I believe but it didn't work out so they scrapped it.

    The world is dead enough as is. We don't need more phased shit. If you want to build a house go play the sims.

    I do play The Sims. My goal is you build one SUPER ULTRA MEGA POPTART GAME! Next, I'll suggest we add an FPS Nazi zombie feature.

    Player housing has come and gone over the years. I like how Blizzard is mixing it up and trying the garrisons.

    saw the thread title, immediately thought of Game of Thrones.

    Varok of House Saurfang, first of his name........

    Garrisons basically fits this bill does it not?
