I just want a house in WoW. I don't know why they went with this garrison route.
EQ1 had the best housing imo. You bought a house in your guild lot, and you could put and weapons or items wherever you wanted in it and on the lawn, change the house type, buy furniture, etc etc. People can visit, you can give permissions to alts and friends (like a 3d guild bank), and it'll last forever since it's not located in or tied into an expansion.
I don't want a base, or a fort, or a shipyard, or any other place where I have to do a bunch of crap like mine or pick plants or tell people what to do. I just want a house I can throw my crap where I want and hang out with people in game.
All I hope is when they do finally put it in it's not a letdown like console skyrim houses. Random furniture placement sucks.
