This is how you do a cash shop imho.

Yet another thing Everquest has done right.

Damn SoE, you're not milking hard enough! But I will say this, at least they're doing it right. Seriously, they have a phenomenal cash shop in EQ2, even if it can get a bit silly at times.

Yeah, SoE has focused on a lot of cosmetic items rather than advantage (sorry -- "convenience") stuff. But what's really cool about prestige homes like this is that they need lots and lots of furnishings to look good. Sure, you can buy some from the store as well but the vast majority of what people will use is crafted. This in turn stimulates the game economy in a really nice way. Even if your character is a carpenter and makes your own furnishings there are still a lot of items you won't be able to make and will need to buy. Or resources you might prefer to buy rather than harvest so that you can then craft the items without needing to run all over creation.

In short, when someone buys a prestige home, it benefits other players as well. That's pretty cool.

From the two choices, I definitely like the evil island way better!

I've always thought they should add the wonderful Halloween event mansion.

Tower interior actually looks too big to me, seems it could use scaling down some. Like the exterior, you could create your own large garden/forest there.

@Saker
They're two different prestige homes. The interiors are not the inside of the tower on the island. That is never shown, but the tower it's based on actually has a very small/cramped interior.

*sigh* Why can't they fix, whatever it is that they broke, in the AOD expansion.

My game use to work fine before, and now it's getting the, 'this game is out of memory' error. o_O

Is anyone else in the same boat?

try checking the support foroms, and if nothing is there, post something and they'll get info from you to help fix the problem. (Problems usually don't fix themselves)
