As was mentioned in the GU60 Crafting and Housing Preview, two new prestige homes appeared on the Test/Test_copy servers while we were testing Game Update 60. The Kromzek one should be a raid drop of some sort, the Thurgadin one will apparently be a Station Cash item "soon".
Luxurious Kromzek Keep
Once you've been knocking around raiding in Velious, apparently your perceptions of size get changed quite a bit. Hanging around with giants will do that to you, it seems.
No, really, this raid-dropped home will give even the tallest player a feeling of being itty-bitty, and those of us that are vertically challenged will feel really, really, really tiny.
This place is HUGE! Ginormous!
See for yourself!
|Don't fall! That's a longggggggg way down off the entry bridge!|
|Looking back at the front door|
|Then turning around and looking into the home|
|Did I mention how huge it is?|
|Interesting "windows" in some rooms|
|One room has straw in it - guess they stable their critters inside the keep?|
|This may seem like a normal large room|
|until you look up ...|
|...and up some more!|
|Looking up from the main room - there are no stairs, and it is a long way up!|
Thurgadin Grand Hall
My neck hurt after after touring this one, so I followed word on Test that there was a new home in Thurgadin, as well. Nobody seems willing to shed light on how/when this home will be available, but I had fun touring it! Of course, after touring a giant home, I was looking forward to something a bit, well, smaller, from the dwarves ... however, as the name of the place implies, small is not an option!
That is all the eye-candy from me. If you want a video tour of them, you can check out the Zam article about these homes.
|Entry is through the back of the Thurgadin crafting area|
|I'm feeling shorter by the minute!|
|That door in the back right of the pic is the entrance|
|Lots of decorating challenges with irregular walls and such|
|Lovely wall art, but where does the ramp lead to?|
|What could be better than two waterfalls in your home?|
|How about a fountain centered between the two falls?|
|Did I mention how large it all is?|
