Homes can be customized with more than 2,000 decorating items, including furniture, décor, books, barrels and a whole lot more.
The Homestead update includes nearly 40 instanced homes to choose from, each styled after one of the game’s 10 playable races. Players will get their first home for free after the introductory quest is completed. Afterwards, they can go on a shopping spree by buying multiple homes of various sizes that can be shared across all of their in-game characters.
