Get Your Housing

  • When entering the game, talk to the Housing Assistance NPC to receive a marker on the map showing the housing entrance
  • Walk to the housing entrance
  • Talk to the Housing vendor and right click on it to open the selection window
  • In the window, pick the layout you want to rent, pay the rent
  • Your selection moves to the top, which will make it easy to find when you come back
  • Click “Enter” for your selection

Get Furniture

Once you do that it will update the housing mission to tell you to purchase some furniture from the vendors. Walk around the building on both sides to locate them.

Right click on the vendor to make the selection panel appear. Click on your choices of furnishing to buy. They will then show in your inventory.

Enter Your Home

When you are done shopping, Right click on the housing entrance and select to enter the home with the layout you rented. That should take you to an instanced version of your home where you can decorate.

Decorate Your Space

  • To edit the appearance of the walls, floor, ceiling, and stairs, or to change the door, click on the gear icon.
  • Select which type you want to edit at the top of the control panel window such as Floor, or Ceiling
  • Select the materials, or even switch to a material that sees outside instead of seeing walls or a ceiling
  • Use the color wheels to colorize and customize
  • Ambient lighting can be adjusted in intensity and color at the bottom of the panel.
