As of the 3.0 patch, players of level 21 or above can own a housing establishment in one of the residential areas of Oriel and Pernon or, alternatively, in Beluslan or Gelkmaros (Asmodians) or in Heiron or Inggison (Elyos). Housing comes with several benefits and features, such as buffs and extra warehouse space, and is the ideal way to relax after a long day filled with battles and combat.
Getting to Your Housing
The skill Homeward Bound allows players to return to their house by summoning a portal which group members are allowed to use as well. By using it, the player will appear in the studio's door. It is learned after having completed the level 21 Studio acquisition quest. Those with a studio can access through the Studio Entrance in Oriel or Pernon. If the player owns a house or better type of accommodation, its location will be marked on the map and can manually be traveled to.
There are five levels of housing: Studio, House, Estate, Mansion, and Palace. The larger your accommodation, the more furniture it can accommodate and the more benefits it yields. Studios are free, but all other types of housing are subject to a weekly maintenance fee.
A free Studio is available to all characters of level 21 or above, and can be acquired by doing a series of quests. Starting quests are available from Hariton (the Pernon Teleporter) for Asmodians and Izunius (the Oriel Teleporter) for Elyos. Ending quests are Be It Ever So Humble [?] Asmodian and And A Home for Every Daeva [?] Elyos. The resale price for a studio is 4,000,000 Kinah.
Other types of accommodation are available via auction. The level requirement to bid on a house type varies on the grade of the accommodation. Characters who do not meet the requirements cannot participate in the auction.
|Housing Type||Starting Bid||Maintenance Fee||Min. Level to Bid|
Houses can be listed for auction from 00:00 Monday to 24:00 Friday through the Real Estate Auctioneer (Oriel/Pernon Plaza), the Butler, or any signpost outside a house that is currently for sale. Signs will indicate whether or not a house is for sale by their color (red sign = for sale). Bidding takes place from 12:00am Monday to 12:00pm Sunday. When the auction closes on Sunday at noon (12:00) auction, if a bid is placed when there are 5 minutes or less remaining, the auction will be extended, up to a maximum of 30 minutes.
At the end of the auction, the character with the highest bid will receive the house. A character cannot bid on more than 2 houses at the same time, and may only occupy one house at a time. If the player already owns a house or higher type of accommodation at the moment he/she wins a new house from the auction, a 2-week grace period begins. During this period the new house cannot be used, as the character's current house will have to be sold first. This happens automatically at the end of the 2-week grace period, but a better option is to manually list the current house for sale as manually selling it within the grace period will provide a higher revenue and lets you access your new house faster (the moment the current house is sold).
If a character sells all of his/her houses at auction and no longer owns any housing, they can receive a Studio from the Studio NPC again - either Sarrik (Asmodian) or Parrine (Elyos).
Houses and up are subject to a weekly maintenance fee. If the maintenance fee is not paid, 1st and 2nd warnings are given. If, following these warnings, the overdue house maintenance fee is still not paid within the ensuring 2 weeks ownership is revoked and the house is listed for auction. 90% of the house's cost will be refunded to the owner.
The maintenance fee can be paid for up to 4 weeks in advance.
The interior and exterior of homes can be changed using the Decorate function Click the house-shaped button located at the bottom right upon entering the house to enter Decorate mode. Outside, you can decorate the roof, walls, frame (lumber frame), door, yard, fence, or place exterior items. Inside the house, you can decorate the wall and floor, or place interior items.
