Here first introduces Nuian's House Blueprints:
A small house is popular in ArcheAge, because we only need to spend 10 gold in buying the blueprints, and the materials of building a small house are stone*2 and wood*2(Bound Equipment).
How to make bound stones and woods? A stone needs 200 rocks and a wood needs 200 logs, it needs about 1 to 2 weeks to collect the subordinate materials.
There are 9 types of small house:
A medium House is not so easy to get, it needs more than five times the materials of a small house. Its blueprint costs 100 gold, and it needs stone*10, wood*10 and steel*5 to make.
A deluxe house's blueprint costs 2500 gold, it needs stone*60, wood*60 and steel*30 to make.
Then here is a player's ideas about the house building in CBT:
Q: How long do we need to spend in collecting materials?
A: We have three players to collect materials together, so it doesn't takes much time, if you only collect materials by yourself, I think it will take a long time.
Q: What materials are hard to collect?
A: I think log collecting is easy, but rock is hard to collect.
Q: Do you think it takes a long time to build a house?
A: Cause there are three players to build a house together, it only takes 7 mins. If there are more players to build together, it will save more time.
Q: How do you think of the house when you finish building it?
A: It seems nothing different from the house in reality, it's really interesting that we can build house in game.
Q: Can you tell us where we can build houses in game?
A: There are several places, such as Mahophedor, Sunset Island, Mountain of Tiger Den, Hunting Highland.
