I was talking more about the size. I too would was thinking of player housing that you could put up in the open world, like buying a piece of land and building a house on it. Having everyone see your house you build would be awesome. I for one am hoping for something extravagant and just overly big.
I mean, I'm an adventurer that's saving the world, getting into battles that common folk wouldn't dare to, I reap the spoils of battle and have Gil pouring out of my *** and I expect a big @#%^ing house not a small shack.
I don't think we'll ever see something like individual houses you can build somewhere.
I'm affraid what Perrin said might be closer to the truth than we'd like.
If it's really going to be just another instanced zone they better create a seperate entrance and not just another menu entry under the market wards and grand companies.
If they put it there I'll start a poll on the official forums asking to get rid of the cities and just open a big menu with all locations when you come near the city gates.
What happened to the seamless world they were talking about?
We zone from Thalanan to the Black Shroud, we zone to the grand company "room", to dungeons, we even zone when we go to the other side of the fence when taking the ferry.
It's nothing gamebreaking but it's outdated and it should be no problem for them to create a really seamless world. Guess I got carried away a bit, but it really bothers me when they try to create a detailed world and then refuse to use it.
