I feel like noone saved their gil. My FC has been saving for housing since 8/26.... there were a ton of warning signs about the large cost. We were thinking 5 mil.... turned out we even lowballed it.... but 8 million isnt awful. That being said.... new ways to make gil need to be introduced.... (i.e. new items to gather/craft, etc.)
How big is your FC? The smallest plot is designed for an FC of 4-5 members and is the size of the Inn room (stated by the man himself, smallest plots are designed for casual FC's with 4-5 members.)
Think about that before your 50 member FC buys it.....
