    I'd sell, trade or give away mine too if I could (and for a lot less than 15,000 crowns). I only use it for furniture storage and I don't have that much furniture.

    It is a pretty house, but it's just not right for me. It's too big, with too much open space and a layout which is clearly more intended as a temple or other public building than a house. Also the total mis-match between the outside and the inside bothers me (from the major things like all the floors and rooms which simply aren't there to the minor things like windows in the wrong place). I also don't like that the light never changes and the sky looks weird, and unless you pay for a wayshrine or find a friend to teleport to it takes too long to get from there to anywhere else. I understand why other people like it but it really doesn't appeal to me.

    Maybe that's affecting my perspective but I'm really surprised that they'd try to sell it after giving it away free to so many people, and especially surprised that they'd charge the same as for other notable houses. I appreciate it's the same size but I think even if I was the type to pay that kind of money for a virtual house it'd seem unreasonable knowing it was given away a year ago.

    Agreed.

    I'd love to have it, but damn, it's not worth 150$. I missed it last year due to vacation and I was hoping for a way to get it for months but this is just plain insulting. We could earn last year's rewards during other events this year, why cant this be something like that instead? Or at least make it buyable for gold?

    I mean I buy myself stuff I don’t really need from the Crown Store but $150 for a virtual house? Honestly, the pricing seems so far off I don’t know what to say. Even something like $80 are hard to imagine for me but twice the amount? Wow.

    Yeah, they jumped the gun on that one especially since it's the item that was free last year.

    LOL! What a joke.

    Looks like Z0$ is canceling the "Summerfall" event this year, too, since they canceled the annual/semi-annual Midyear Mayhem event already. :lol:

    Can I sell or 'gift' my Grand Psijic Villa away for 15,000 crowns? Because I'd love to. :lol:

    They ain't "cancelling" it, it was an one-time thing to promote Summerset (not unlike how they promoted Morrowind by handing out a nix-ox mount).
    If anything, there will be a different, separate Elsweyr event.

    Did they sell nix-ox for 150$ afterwards? ;)

    I'd hardly call that an event. They just gave out mounts, no different to daily rewards we now got. Summerfall was a big event with cool rewards that lots of people would still like to get. They could make an Elsweyr themed one with new reward and chance for new players to catch up with the last year's one. Instead we're getting repeat of Dark Brotherhood and Thieves Guild and a house on 150$ "sale". Is their marketing department run by monkeys?

    While I agree that it would be nice if they offered the house again for free, the Summerfall event was clearly (to my mind) a one-time community event designed to promote Summerset. They aren't going to do it again. I feel bad for those who missed it, either because they weren't playing or couldn't play at the time. I think it's fair of them to sell it now, a year later, but I do agree that charging the 15k crown price (which is identical to Topal and the Grotto) is steep considering it was free last year (though with not a stick of furniture). The price is right when comparing it to other homes of similar size, but way off the mark considering they gave it away free last year. I think a nominal fee of 5K crowns would be more reasonable.

    Also, regarding the Nix Ox mount, I agree that wasn't an event - it was just buy Morrowind by X date. I believe they offered it again for free during MW's anniversary, but I may be wrong there.

    Hell id take it off anyone who doesnt want it as ive dreamed of owning it since i saw it but i was in such financhial trouble last year i could barly afford eso+ let alone summerset exp.

    I think that we cant earn it again is insulting espically placing such a hefty price tag on it for a once free item, its pure greed.

    It’s not $150, it’s $107.

    It’s a bad deal ONLY because it was free previously. Similar prices to other houses of that size.

    Herzog Zwei the Genesis | Breton - Templar [PvE Healer]
    ______________________________________________________________
    Champion 810+ CP | PS4/NA | DC PVP | †The Vestige
    Ras Kalik the Vestige, a renown Redguard Paladin and the wielder of Chrysamere (and Volendrung); He has been blessed to save Tamriel from Molag Bal’s destructive Planemeld while reuniting the Five Companions. His further accomplishments after defeating Molag Bal, has been to stop the destruction of Morrowind, the Clockwork City, return order to the isle of Summerset and create a new king in Wrothgar and a queen in Elsywer. These events have made him a living legend and continue to lead him into new adventures throughout Tamriel, as well as into the hearts of many ladies including the Elf Queen, Aryenn. (not only Sai Sahan has a secret snowflake!)

    Over years of adventurous travels, Ras Kalik had become a loner, until he re-visited his homeland of Alik'r. Alik'r and it's cities were overrun by the undead Ra-Netu and therefore he made an allegiance with Alik'r's own Ash'abah tribe. These Ash'abah with his help, cleansed the city of Sentinel in Alik'r desert and it's surrounding areas of the undead brought to life by the Withered Hand. After rescuing Sentinel from undead, King Fahara’jad’s personal bodyguard the Goliath of Hammerfell, who was given this name by Imperials in the region; asked to join the tribe after learning of the defeat of the Withered Hand to the Ash'abah. Kalik promised Goliath he would task him with fighting enemies on the battlefield if he so desired

    Jux Blackheart a master thief that frequents the Sisters of the Sands inn for pilfering, was known to infiltrate any bank vault or Ayelid ruin without detection, but Kalik can vividly recall the night he met the thief. Jux found himself rummaging thru a slightly inebriated Kalik’s pocket for too long, on a full-mooned night and because of this greed. He lost two fingertips as a lesson! In return, he gained a new friend.

    Kaotik Von’Daemon is an outcast, and a half-caste between a Breton mother and a Redguard father. Kaotik become a pariah due to his conjuration of Daedra pets. He was taught healing magic during his childhood years by his Breton mother. His father due to Redguard customs exiled him from the desert, sending him by wagon to Wrothgar. He happened to meet Kalik while traveling from Alik'r to Wrothgar when the caravan he was in was ambushed in Bangkorai by a group of bandits. Kalik by chance was also traveling thru this area on his Auridon Warhorse (which was bestowed to him by his friend, Darien Gautier). During this ambush, Kalik was able to rescue five hostages from the bandits. Kaotik was the first rescued, and Ras Kalik also recruited him to be in the Ash'abah tribe. These core Ash'abah tribesmen may never be seen together in travel as they partake in their own adventures but they always know what each other is doing; as they frequent a hideout in northern Bankorai. Their hideout an old Orc castle ruin, is kept watch by Nuzhimeh and she passes messages written between them, and frequently they also enjoy her company and her bed.

    The other men rescued were a Dunmer, a Breton and two Imperials. One of the Imperials was related to Abnur Tharn the Battlemage of the Imperial Elder Council (Ras Kalik's mentor in the Five Companions). Cinan Tharn is Abnur's drunkard treasure hunting illegitimate son, that was caught smuggling artifacts out of the Ayleid ruins in Cyrodiil and the elder Imperial Tyrus Septim is a retired battle-mage soldier and guard to the Tharn family. As much as Abnur Tharn hated his half-sister Euraxia, he dislikes his bas†ard son more. The Dunmer captive shackled to the Imperials looked familiar to Kalik from his time in Morrowind.... and he recognized him as Tythis Andromo a House Telvanni slave-owner and banker from Vvardenfell. During a rough interrogation to Tythis, Ras Kalik learnt why the bandits accosted him. The racist Dunmer was providing slaves as soldiers for the Three Banner War. The bandits were trying to negotiate a lucrative ransom for Andromo and the Imperials.... Kalik did not need any of this gold and he could never set Tythis free as he did with the two Imperials. His past involvement with slavery and war crimes, made Kalik's blood boil. He chose not to execute Tythis, as he figured the worse punishment for this former rich and opulent slave owner, is to now be a manservant for Ras Kalik and the tribe.

    Herzog Zwei the Genesis a Breton and also a prominent member of a cult of Xivkyn worshipers, was seeking to purchase an artifact from Cinan Tharn, before their capture. This artifact being an Ayelid artifact; the sword Sinweaver. After their rescue and the exchange of gold to Cinan for the sword he decided to slip away before Ras Kalik could question who he was, and why the Xivkyn worshippers wanted that sword. Herzog was headed to Nagastani — An Ayleid ruin in eastern Cyrodiil. He had heard rumors that the Sword would give him magical powers to become a Xivkyn, if he performed an Ayleid ritual at an old shrine hidden there. Equipped with the artifact sword, he was off to start his own adventure. Ras Kalik did indeed notice the sword however, an sent a letter to Jux Blackheart (whom also was interested in Ayleid treasures), to attempt to find Herzog and acquire the sword. (*Azani Blackheart in Elder Scroll's Oblivion is Jux's descendant some 747 years later)

    And so the Redguard, Imperial and Breton men have parted ways for now... While Ras Kalik is off to Elsweyr to encounter the latest threat to Tamriel, with Abnur Tharn and Sai Sahan - - DRAGONS!! Little does he know, a necromancer survived his attack on the Withered Hand, in Alik'r and the one known as Auriek Siet'ka is also following him to the land of the Khajiits. Cacique the Sage of Ius a Shaman mystic who has become attuned spiritually with Tu'whacca (a Redguard God) and Ius (the God of animals), after being burned severely by escaped dragons, is awaiting the arrival of Kalik to Senchal.

    Exactly, and my opinion is that at a fundamental level, the $107 villa is exactly the same as the Coldharbour house that can be got for gold, (no need for real world cash at all), and a lot less gold than equivalent products.

    You are entitled to disagree. I respect that. However, you are not going to change my ultra-literal perspective.
