Q. I have game access. Do I have to spend money to get a house? A. No! Just finish the main Solace Bridge Outskirts quest to earn your reward of a Player Owned Town Row Lot Deed which comes with a two-story row home ready to decorate! The Solace Bridge Outskirts quest is NOT the main SotA quest! Solace Bridge Outskirts has beginning-level quests and the main Outskirts quest to get your free row lot deed generally takes an hour or two to complete. When you finish the main SotA quest, you'll be rewarded with an additional Player Owned Town Village Lot Deed and a Shingle-Roof (Village Home) house deed for your heroic efforts! Q. I got my row lot deed from the Solace Bridge Outskirts quest. Now what? A. Check out this awesome guide by Synergy Blaize! https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/f...deed-from-completing-outskirts-quests.155817/ Q. How can I afford my 250 gold per day tax! A. Earn it by adventuring and/or visiting the Oracle every day and answering accurately to get 500 gold. Don’t forget to pay your taxes or your lot and possessions will go to the bank and you’ll have to redecorate your home after you reclaim another lot. Q. I love my home! How do I get another one? A1. This is where you'll spend some effort if you want another lot and home before you finish the main SotA quest (And before R62, the below was the only way to own a home without spending money before finishing the main quest). Owning multiple homes (and decorating them) is one of SotA’s most interesting and fun activities. The first step in the process is having enough in-game currency to purchase or upgrade a lot deed. There are many ways to earn gold to purchase taxed Player Owned Town (POT) lot deeds or upgrade existing deeds. A2. In R53, it was rumored that lot and home deeds were going to be added to loot via the supply bundles. We don't yet have enough information to tell you the chances of getting one or which color has the best chance but I'll update this page as we get more info. Q. How do I earn gold? A. There are several ways to earn gold: - You can kill mobs, get a small amount of gold and then sell the looted weapons, armor and potions - You can visit the Oracle each day and get 500 GP by answering the question accurately - You can gather resources. There are mines suitable for newer arrivals and you can sell the ore to NPC vendors or other players (Player vendors pay MUCH more. Find player vendors with items they will buy in their Sell tab). - Do quests. Many quests give hundreds of gold as rewards which can add up. - Convert your COTOs to gold at a player vendor. - Set up your own vendor and sell items to other players for gold. Q. How long will it take to get enough gold to buy another lot deed? A. That depends on how much time you want to devote to your goal. As a very conservative example, I went to the South Celestial Wetlands, a Tier Two zone but not too difficult if you are patient and heal between fights. I made one pass through the two bandit camps, killed and looted everything I could, mined 7 pieces of ore and then left. My haul was 394 looted gold, 355 in sold loot and 280 from selling ore to a player vendor at 40 each for a total of 1,029 gold on a single run through the two bandit camps. You can probably do the camps three or four times in an hour and mining the ore should give you about 4,000+ gold per hour. At that rate, and as a worst-case scenario, it would take you about 78 hours if you only did the above. The reality is that it won’t take you that long since you will progress in levels and kill faster. You may also get lucky and get rare resources to sell, like Beetle Carapaces from cotton plants, at 1000+ gold each from player vendors! Hint – I sold the above weapons in the Outlander Welcome Center. Instead, go next door to Soltown where Annika will give you 20% more for your weapons. Hint II – If you want to mine, the Whiteguard Foothills contains the Lost Whiteguard Silver Mine. It is riskier than the South Celestial Wetlands but there are many ore nodes and lots of enemies to fight and loot. You should be able to sell the ore for many thousands of gold per hour if you can handle the mobs that spawn. It took @Vladamir Begemot 66 hours, 16 minutes with Vic, a brand new avatar and no outside help to earn enough gold to purchase a Player Owned Town (POT) taxed row deed for 325,000 gold. His well-documented journey is here https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-race-to-home-ownership.111801/. Congrats Vic! Q. Can I buy larger deeds and homes? A. Yes, many player vendors offer larger lot deeds and homes. Shop around and compare merchants. One advantage from buying from a player vendor is they may offer Place Anywhere Deeds which will enable you to claim a lot in any town in the game that has an open lot. However, they are very expensive. Edit - Please feel free to copy/post this information anywhere it will help other Community members.
