    We NEED more storage, so if it's only doable via player housing, let's bring it to the game.

    Really, one the most hated thing in the game the TR cache cleaning before every new reincarnation, because the limited storage options.
    Storage is virtual. Storage in the bank, storage in your inventory, or storage in a house is all exactly the same thing as far as the server is concerned. If they say they can't add more storage, housing is not going to add storage. If they say they can't add more storage and then have storage in housing, they were not being truthful when they said they can't add more storage.

    Watch what happens when/if we get player housing - it will be a piad expansion.

    Want a house to sit in and do nothing - standard House will be $50, deluxe House, $90.

    Want a crafting Altar and to lazy to go to your Airship or House C/K, here, buy this contract for TP - don't forget to renew it every week!

    Airships provide everything I could ever want. But I will thank the IMO fools, that will spend the money on this to fund future content that I will take part in.

    As long as we get more storage space, I'm all for it.

    If they did do this absolute waste of space , It would be nothing more then a Zone like the ship zones lol !!

    If you want to waste developers time for non interactive / functional / pretend zones , You need a break from the gaming world !!!



    Ps. Dear devs if you do waste your time , I suggest the price should be = to 50$ US.
    lol, so true

    Also, they can make more storage. it's not that they can't, it's that they don't want to. Also, the way it is now they know you want more storage and so you can buy it up to the point where it would require them to program.
    You can always buy more character slots to increase storage if you have bought all they offer for your bank...

    You do not know what you are talking about. Adding more Personal Bank tabs may not be possible using the current engine/db, while adding another zone that can accept hookpoints for chests and such may be possible.

    Anyways, I for one and stoked about player housing. If done right (well... Turbine... so if done Half-Right) it could be great for both players and bean-counters alike.

    If housing serves a function such as BTC storage expansion, in all over it. If it doesn't then I honestly can't imagine what they'd offer with it that would cause me to part with my money.

    If it's just a glorified expansion on the fluff that is Cosmetipets, fine. At least this fluff should be less in my face and not bandied about in quests. Whatever makes turbine money I supposed...

    If it leads to a new generation of "Click (here) to buy (shards for) this feature" then screw it. Further Zengafication is not what this game needs, and if that's the goal then any progress towards Housing should be abandoned now, before the potential loss on investment becomes to great to abandon.

    I want player housing and I want a chest in my house. Mostly because we all know what happens when Turbine introduces new chests to the game...

    I could actually get behind this. I hate destroying or selling named loot to make space. Makes finding it in the first place a let down.

    Likely enough want it to make it worthwhile for Turbine to develop it. Personally, if it expands my storage, it's worthwhile for me to look into.

    i definitely think there is enough interest to develop it and i think more storage will be the draw to get people to pay for it. i don't like the idea mostly because player housing would be too commercialized and glamored up. i think the current banking system should be scrapped and updated to something more modern. instead of creating player houses and cramming them into the same instances we quest in causing additional lag, selling upgrades to banking would be better. i see this more a waste of effort when guild ships already exist that should be expanded on. i would be fine with your own berthing quarters on the ship instead of creating something totally new.

    If housing adds storage, then 'm for it. Even if it's an apartment in Eveningstar as the missing reward for paying for those quests.

    ^^This.

    If housing will give us a lot of additional (and permanent) BtC space then yes, please, everything else is meh.

    Would be quite good if they adapted the player holds from the 1st ed. Players Handbook.

    Actually - Could allow for you to upgrade your hold with various upgrades (tavern, shops etc), have your alts doing things around the area (based on class/race/level? Dwarf bard singing while very inebriated at your tavern - or maybe asleep in a pig pen if only low level).

    Quest givers for your character specific adventures (generic & instanced, but offered by your stable of alts?)

    Options for player generated content (start from your hold instance for other players)

    mmm, many options

    Housing would be a great edition. Allows people to do stuff outside the same repetitive quests. The old Star Wars galaxies had player housing. The amazing stuff people decorate was a lot of fun

    Nice Ad Hominem attack. Instead of insulting you I would simply make the argument, but I guess that's what makes you special.

    Storage = item codes that need to be associated with a particular character. How does those codes being in another virtual zone change the fact that those items still need to be associated with that character?

    In my opinion, the primary reason for the DDO development team to pursue housing is to attract new customers. The kind of people who really enjoy housing--a sandbox role playing feature--play other games right now. If DDO gets housing, players who require housing in an MMO may just give the game a (second) look and start playing.

    The secondary reason to add housing involves giving players more things to strive for in the form of housing trophies. Right now, players on the bleeding edge constantly push for new and better equipment to justify their gaming effort. Of course, that very equipment requires a corresponding increase in monster difficulty, resulting in the never ending arms race called power creep. The developers could mitigate that, to some extent, by offering housing trophies (and possibly cosmetics) in place of equipment. Of course, some players will buy in (Look at my awesome stuffed dragon!) and some will not (I do not need another stupid stuffed dragon! I want better equipment!).

    Again, in my opinion, housing has no necessary link to storage. Why create new housing instances just to support a new storage interface when it could all be done through existing bankers? Housing is a sandbox feature for role playing and trophies. Developers only link storage to get more buy in.

    In the end, I think the DDO development team will deliver housing because they are creative people looking to build new things, and they will see the potential for new customers and new sales as justification. The people here, complaining that they have no need for housing, will not sway the developers. They are not the target audience. Housing will not bring in swarms of new players, but I sincerely hope it brings in some new blood and some new things to strive for.

    I wish to say one more thing. If new dungeons and raids stop appearing because of housing development, the developers will find themselves trading one kind of customer for another. People who want housing will join the game. People who want dungeons and raids will leave the game. I sincerely hope they do not go down that road again. First priority must remain delivering new dungeons and raids on a regular basis to keep existing customers satisfied. They also need to finish what they started and nail down end game. Only when those things are assured should the developers cast about for new things to build.
