    So i finally have enough to put a house, small marble workshop or possibly a stone tower up and i sort of need to as my bank box's are getting a bit over filled. Any location dos/donts or anything else i should consider when placing a house? I don't think i have anything worth a vendor yet but possibly in the future i will. Appreciate feedback.

    You seem like a newb, which means your accounts are not fully developed. With that in mind, I would pick a house near a moongate so your undeveloped chars can easily run to and from town doing shit that new players do. Trinsic comes to mind.

    House placement is purely up to the player, my preference has always been for a secluded area located on grass. Ideally somewhere close to town so that if you need to make a run it's a simple jog, but if your characters can recall then anywhere is fine really.

    I've got a few tips, but it's mostly up to you depending on what you want... For instance swamp houses are terrible in my opinion, but if you want to farm spined leather then it can be convenient.

    • Try to avoid swamp areas as there's lots of spawn and poisonous critters.
    • Try to avoid islands, that way if you die you aren't stuck.
    • If you plan on making a smith, a location near mines/mountains is super useful.
    • If you plan on making a fisherman, you can even fish off the roof of some houses.
    • The desert is full of poisonous spawn, so try to avoid that.
    • Areas with lots of monster spawn (i.e. North of Shame, Trinsic Jungles) can be frustrating, there's nothing worse than recalling and being bum rushed by 3 orcs, a lizardman and a water elemental.
    • Areas close to an ankh/shrine can be useful if you cannot resurrect your characters.
    • If you find a perfect area but there are lots of red names inside the houses nearby, it's better off to look elsewhere unless you like being killed often.

    Finally, IF YOU FIND A PLACE THAT HAS A SILVER SERPENT SPAWN NEARBY BURN THE HOUSE DOWN. No matter how good you are at this game, silver serpents are better.

    I say take some time figuring what area you like, and hey if you hate it move the house!! I would suggest making sure to have security set up (need tips feel free to pm) also don't carry a house rune keep in your bank.

    Congrats by the way

    If you’re looking for PvP place your house near Wrong or Ice. If you don’t appreciate bwing reskilled constantly, avoid the area.

    Thanks for the pointers everyone. Do you all think it's best to place a small tower if i can afford it over a small house or small workshop? Aside from being bigger is there any other benefits that need to be weighed out? I do plan on doing some macroing there.

    I would say just wait until you can place a small tower, or ask someone to place one for you and sell it to you for deed.

    Small House:
    Advantage: Barely Cheaper than a Marble Workshop
    Disadvantages: Only one floor, only one secure, very few lockdowns

    Small Marble Workshop:
    Advantages: Barely cheaper than a Small Tower, three floors, open bottom floor can be used for traps, open roof can be used for fishing, more lockdowns than a Small House
    Disadvantages: Door is annoying, still only one secure, still only 45 lockdowns

    Small Tower:
    Advantages: Spacious enough for comfortable living, three floors, open roof can be used for fishing, 55 lockdowns and 2 secures
    Disadvantages: Barely more expensive than a Marble Workshop, no open bottom floor


    Considering a small tower is only 88,000 I would just wait until you have the money for a small tower. Plenty of people will place one for you and sell it to you for deed price. Just make sure you pay by check (kept in the main level of your backpack, NOT a container within the backpack) so if the person PKs you they don't get anything worthwhile.

    HI,

    small house
    Pros

    easy to place
    have 4 walls

    Cons
    1 floor
    small space once you have a security wall.
    only 1 secure container


    workshops
    Pros

    2-3 floors (marble workshop has the flat room)
    great for mining / monster traps
    nice quick access
    easy to place

    Cons
    ground floor has no walls
    only 1 secure container


    Small Tower
    Pros

    3 floors
    2 secure containers
    walls

    Cons
    small door
    larger than workshop or small house


    if you need any advice with security or traps, ping me a message.

    Thank you everyone. You helped sway me in the direction that i was hoping for-- the small stone tower is worth placing since i can afford it ( and still not be totally broke ). I guess part of me thought my first house needed to be very small and very conservative just because it was my first.

    Now that you say fishing off the roof is possible and i believe two people have said that now. Is there good money in fishing? I don't get why people fish?

    I don't get why people on here fish, hear rumors if you have 3 fishers on one boat you can sometimes make money.. I think it's a rumor. NO money in fishing from your roof top just a ton and I mean a TON of fish steaks no one really wants

    You can make money fishing from a boat.
    There are guides for that on here.

    Fishing from roof is good for gaining the skill to 99.9 fully afk.

    I personally like to mine from a house.

    Remember that you can always redeed the house and sell it back to the vendor for full price.

    The use of fishing from a rooftop is to train. Actual profit requires boats.

    Funny. Every con listed is exactly what I love the most about my homes.

    ESPECIALLY my silver serp spawn house
    Sometimes I can see all 3 on screen at once.
