    Just to let people know, cuz this is causing a lot of confusion. Its REALLY an empty row lot token. We should get the wording in the patch notes changed to token and not deed.

    The Housing Deed is really confusing, and really should be called something else. Like calling them plans or blueprints? Anything other than deed.

    So whatever it is, does it come with written instructions somewhere?

    patch notes

    • Crown Shop – Added Empty Row Lot deed. Note that to use this deed in the house selection UI, you need to select “Empty Row Lot” and not “Empty Lot” which should not be in the list – as this just uses the default row house.

    It is not a deed. You need a row lot deed to use it so calling it a deed is deceiving but it is easily understandable once using it.

    They just need to call it the invisible row house deed and let those of us with all the two story row houses that came with buying row lot deeds be able to exchange those for the new one that makes your lot empty.

    Stop saying deed, its NOT a deed. A deed is what you need to claim a lot. Its a non house house technically but since that is almost as bad as calling it a deed, lets just say empty row lot token.

    Same with combos are not stacking, stacking the same skill is stacking and charged attack is not heat stacking a skill or auto attack, its a charged attack, and a heat stacked skill is not a charged attack, its a heat stacked skill. I know when people are talking it seems simple for them to understand cuz they know what they are talking about, but the person listening does not have the idea in their head and can totally misunderstand whats being said if we use terms that can be confused with something else. Its already bad enough most people dont listen as much as they are just waiting for their chance to speak, but add in poor choice of words and it makes it so much worse, and leads to confusion just like calling this item a deed does. This is why engineers use very specific terms. If you put up the wrong type of beam, use the wrong bolts, this can cost lives. This is why blueprints are very specific.

    This is why I hate english, too many meanings to the same word and too many words mean the same thing. And it REALLY gets ridiculous when they have its own meaning and its opposite, like the word literally. : in effect : VIRTUALLY —used in an exaggerated way to emphasize a statement or description that is not literally true or possible

    My guess is they couldn't just make the row lot an empty lot without a percentage of Novia disappearing. Therefore they created this system. Calling it a deed was an oversight. Regardless, I'm happy and I'm sure plenty of people will be also.

    Same, I thought my houses were deeds as well, I will have to check when I log on, but I'm pretty sure my Storefront two story house says "Storefront two story house deed", which would make the empty row lot deed stick with the original template.

    By the way, this would have cause plenty of house owners to have all their deco be sent to their banks if they were using the default row house at this point, and possibly would have affected towns a whole bunch by having all those unclaimed rows acting as deco become grassy fields.

    Deed : to convey or transfer by a signed instrument containing a legal transfer, bargain, or contract : to convey or transfer by deed.

    The devs are just as guilty of using wrong words as anyone else. have you read some of the skills? LMAO Many people still dont understand what the penalty on the ring of the gambler actually does. -50% melee and ranged critical hit damage reduction. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/583294119204487178/606300272179806210/unknown.png

    Before I give the answer I would like to ask some of you to tell me what you think that does?

    Normally I would totally agree, but they did the right thing here. :)

    They couldn't simply make it an empty lot without mucking things up for POT owners or possibly screwing up all those row lots currently placed. This was a fair way of creating an "option" that allows players like myself the opportunity to utilize an empty row space without impacting other players. I'm fine with paying the cotos. To me it is well worth it for my own gaming enjoyment.
