Mog HouseFollow

So, has it been confirmed if there will/not be a Mog House in FFXIV? I'm currently satisfied with the ability to manage "job changes" anywhere, whenever. It seems like storage is more mobile, with us having a bigger "bag" and these new-fangled Retainers you can just dump your stuff onto. I didn't think much about it til recently, but I kinda got attached to the idea of having my own quiet space. Even a Trophy Room.

I haven't played too many MMO's where I had my own room. FFXI, PSU, CoH (Lairs really weren't the same though) come to mind. And I look forward to TORs personal spaceship implementation. I recall all the times we would hold LS meetings in officers Mog Houses. Or showing off all the cool junk you've aquired to someone. Or just chilling with that special "someone" by the San d'oria fireplace...

Or will it be more like WoW's "Turkish Bath House", aka, Ironforge where privacy is a premium?

Id really like for there to be something like a Mog House, but as far as i know nothing or not much has been said on the subject.

I certainly liked my MH in XI, but with the changes to how job changes are managed and such the "need" is no longer there (presumably like /search being killed off which I used all the time for non-party purposes in XI). Hopefully they make a comeback at some point, though. :)

In a sense, your retainer acts like your moghouse. It's got your storage in place, but it can also bazaar your stuff for you. I'm not sure if you can access your retainer in other cities, but it'll be something that I could definitely try tonight.

And you can snuggle up inside it by a nice warm fire... oh wait, never mind. >.> Storage went to the retainer, job changes went everywhere, there's no mail system currently, but there's no replacement for the "nice quiet place to hang out for whatever reason" as yet. :)

But yes, you can access your retainer from any of the cities, just ring the bell (or be in a market ward). ^^

If they do implement houses, I'm hoping that they're our own personnel airships.

I think SE said at some point that they were going to do some sort of player housing, but they hinted that they had unofficial plans for it being on a "Massive" scale. Sounded like they were looking more into guild housing than individual player housing. But only time will tell us what they have in store!

What would REALLY make my day is if they added the Mog House, added gardening again, mannequin support, AND... allow you to select/purchase use of crafting facilities from your mog house. I hate crafting around other players for some reason, mostly due to lag, but other times people are just rude and will run right through your synth. Being that synthesis requires much greater visual concentration it sucks if someone comes and stands right on top of you during the middle of a synth.

What I have seen in another MMORPG's is a players's camping place.

The equivalent of your mog house is actually a tent that you can set in designated places, it works between other things like store, you can put display items for sale of it.

If it's only privacy what you want, the access can restricted only to friends or only to one person, the key point to avoid overcrowding is that your tent stays there as long as you are inside, once you get out the character pack it and take it with him/her.

Now to be completely honest I have seen that sort of implementation only in simple games with really dated 2D graphics, I'm not sure how realistic is to expect something like that in a game as demanding as FFXIV.

If they do have a sort of Company/Guild house and from what I read, upgradeable, then maybe you can teleport to an individual personal room similar to how you get to different Market Wards. As to upgrades, would be awesome if you could add synth support area from either building them using your crafts or purchase from NPC. Imagine if you will adding your own forge for Blacksmiths to be able to get a synth support without ever leaving the guild. This would also provide great incentive for teamwork and having a varied team make up your company. You could even invite prospective members in to tour your facilities and see what joining your team could offer them lol.

Also, in regards to retainers and the Market Wards. I for one plan on having my group of friends team up to provide a number of services and we will lay claim to a unused ward and invite people to peruse our wares. Though that could lead to shout spam, so my other idea is to call a "Press Conference" right after the servers go up on the 22nd and try and convince my fellow players to decide on specific Wards to sell certain types of merchandise... could catch on, but I'm not holding my breath. We'll have to see what SE has in mind and go from thereSmiley: grin

Also a last thought, I imagine if there are company houses you will warp to your company the same way you get to the Wards. Perhaps that is what those closed off areas in the towns are going to be???

I liked how furniture in the moghouse could give stat boosts like the bucket for fishing and the clay pot for earth defense. :) and it was a point or location we could focus on returning to after lengthy journeys.

IIRC, there was some reference to another instanced area where you have to go to teleport to market wards. I'm thinking if they add housing it will work like getting to a market ward; there will be a teleport option.
Think
1.Market Ward
2.House
3.Company Stronghold.

It'd be pretty cool, anyway.

I'm curious to see, come retail release, whether those inns in the Adventurers' Guilds will be made accessible. Mog House being such a big and lovable thing in FFXI, SE will most likely keep that plus point in some form or another for FFXIV.

What I loved was the various trophies/banners you could display in your Mog House. Building the joint up was super fun also. Honestly, I thought the concept was brilliant and that fact you could eventually invite ppl in was rad. I always thought that not only having a personal "residence" it would be amazing to have a ls 'head-quarters' as well.

I totally support this. Gary mentions this in his latest XIV podcast and compares it to SWG crafting, which worked out VERY well. That zombie dungeon is just pointless. Of course I'd still like to see a search system, if not a full AH.

they said there will be a mog house and you can decorate it as you like, am 100% sure they said that in one of the interview, but it will be added in a later patch.

A mog house won’t be needed because players can carry a much larger number of items than in FFXI. However, there are plans to make some sort of a large-scale house in the future.
