Oh god, i wish i hadnt bought a house. All that did was trigger some grinding that really impacted my level of enjoyment in the game. I bought a house because i’m now maxed out in storage in two zones, so i figure I can grab a house, put in 3 chests and at least solve one problem. Except the first chest is available at furnishing level 35. Almost all the beginning house items are exactly the same 30 timber (120 greenwood) and 15 iron ingot (60 iron ore). Salvaged, they return some timber, but no ingots. you get between 2.5-5 greenwood per axe swing (strangely, some of the bigger young wood trees give you the least efficiency, and the thin little saplings, some of the best). So that means, you’re cutting down about 8 trees to make a single cabinet, or a bed, or a table. Ugh.
The game strangely performs horribly for me in the house, particularly when im decorating, and its the only place I’ve had lockups and game unresponsiveness. Worst thing, I can’t even share my house. I thought i’d be able to invite my company or friends…nope. They can come visit, but they cant even use the chairs or anything. Well, only 10 more levels or so till i unlock the basic chest.
