History is made!

Well, I must say this is a great blog! Perhaps not for draw-dropping pictures or incredibly well crafted writing but more for in-game accomplishments. What's such a big accomplishment? What history has been made? Well, I got a house! I guess that is going too far... I got a house plot. Still... this is some big news. It's kind of hard to explain why getting this house plot is so important but I will do my best. See in most other MMOs when you get a house it is not actually part of the game world (the main world everyone else runs around in). For example when you bought a house in EQ2 there was a house that you could see on the outside but if you where to enter into that house what you see on the inside would be different from what the guy next to you saw when he bought the same house. (See, it's kind of hard to put into words) But in Vanguard when you buy a house and build it in the main world it is actually there in the main world. I know a lot of people would think something like, "Okay so when you build a house in the main world it is not just an instance. Great, whatever, doesn't sound that special to me." But if you really think about it... there are thousands of people who play on my server. There are not thousands of house plots and what plots are out there are going fast! When I bought my house there was double the amount of houses being built then when I visited the same spot a few weeks ago.

Hehe, but before I went to get my house I made some great progress on the Infineum quests! There is a gnome inside this mech...

And there was one part in the infineum quests where I had to get a cultists robes. I like the robes... I'm no caster but they sure are sharp.
Ahh, and I almost forgot! Another huge event happened for my guild the New Outriders: we crafted our first boat! I wrecked the thing about three times...
And of course... here we (my guild and I) are celebrating on top of the construction site of one of our houses. Oh did I forget to mention? It wasn't just me buying a house... no it was my whole guild buying 7 plots total all next to each other!
PS: Oh I forgot to mention that the night I got the house was the beginning of my 18th birthday! So happy birthday to me. ^^

Happy Birthday!

Congrats on the boat and the house too. Is that The Deebs? Great spot if so, a lot of my guildies built there.

Cow Nose the 50 Pound Cat said...

Yup, it's The Deebs!

You can put your inventory items inside the house, so the house works as a secondary bank. Remember to set permission with no possibility other players get items inside your house.

I advice to you put some nice furniture inside your house too... it is pretty to see.

Some items you gain at Work Orders too work like furniture inside the house. I have a Black Pot there over the fire.
