    It seems any exclusive items are always available through other means rarely, IE: events in game, or from sweep stake winners, giveaways

    I didn’t get it myself but the people in my housing guild love the place. Their only real issue is the size of the place and you can’t really do the whole island.

    What a lot of them resorted to is just leaving the island empty and really focusing on one part of the island, like the ocean with ships the volcano with rock monsters and so on. This has made super cool focus areas that really are amazing while the rest of the place is just eh an island.

    I miss the chance to get it or I would have I don’t think I would regret it the place does have a lot of room and huge ceilings that you can really push something amazing in. Or make a super cool beach resort.

    I’m looking forward to this place returning so I can get it myself.

    I still to this day don't understand why Zenimax thinks a simple in-game location, regardless of what it looks like or how big it is, is worth the cost of literally more than two fully-developed major xbox titles.

    This thing should have been completely boycotted, but as usual we have just enough rich people with no concept of wasting giving Zenimax enough purchases to keep getting away with this crap.

    Not rich....ppl have credit cards and live off installment payments. I didn’t buy tho I did have the crowns but it’s due to eso plus Xbox issues. I got about 12-15k one day

    I know that anything matters to anyone differently but having to pay your own money which is equivalent to 18k crowns is just wasteful as it does not really offer any kind of niche features in-game.

    I mean sure you'll get crafting stations and mundus stones all lumped up in your own private area for a very slight gain in convenience but at what cost? If housing actually offered additional storage and 'waking up buffs' to the player like any other TES titles did, then I would be willing to spend a lot of crowns just to own at least one house because let's face it, the current housing system in this game is just a blackhole of gold sink and an income vehicle for ZoS with no real added feature for us players.
    Looking back at the release of the housing system, boy am I glad that I stood by my decision to forego any participation in it. With all that extra money, I'm more than happy to allocate it for a member sub instead of throwing it in a system that offers no niche. It's just not worth it.

    Loved the island when first seen on test center . No way could I ever afford it when it went live . Cost more then concert tickets on the floor of best bands . Cost more then taking family out for dinner at good restaurant . Price was more expensive then pre order special of entire game .

    Yes, yes, this one understands. But a concert ticket is good for one night, yes? And a dinner is also good for one night, yes? When morning comes, concert and dinner are no more. But an island lasts forever, like diamonds, yes?

    Actually when the game runs out of new locations and content to add that $135 will have been wasted just as much as a one night concert.

    buying an in game house for IRL money is just bad business practices.
    there is no return on the investment.
    I would have gladly sunk gold into the house but ZoS had their greazy money grabbing hands all over it.
    Already, I own the Overlook and since I cant share more than one house out ,without being there, I don't need another.

    Do not regret boycotting this money grab housing for cash thing.
    I can easily go to some other place in Tamrial and just say hey I'm squatting here now so this is my home as well.

    Also, budgeting. :)

    I didn't buy it, too large, no need but it's none of my business if someone else did.

    I regret not buying it when I had the chance. I wish they’d taken my money now; I’d buy it in a heart beat.

    It cost more then the entire game several times over and there is no content other then decorating . No quests . No NPC's . No mini games . I have no real proof or any way to show this but I truly believe more money would of been made by ZoS is no limited time offer and price was cut in half . More people would of made an effort to afford the island . I truly do not care anymore however and know from my experience with other houses I would of been regretting this purchase had ai bought it so I feel good for avoiding it .

    So much this ^^
    I love the island, it's very unique among the rest, and I'd love to have it, but I really cannot support such a insidious and shameless money grab. It's not that I can't afford it, it's just simple calculation: whole year of ESO Plus, or all DLCs, or overpriced island I cannot even decorate as I want (with more Crown Store only trinkets!) because of item limit? Oh, don't forget the stupid bait: BUY IT NAOWW OR REGRET LATERRR!!! Hmm... pending soul scan... Nope, no regrets found.
    Btw, I play ESO since pre-order, spending my real monies only on ESO Plus (well, I bought 10k crown on sale once), and I still enjoy the game - there is always something to do, something to work on, like the Transmute Station two months ago or Robust Refabricated Centurion I'm collecting the vouchers and parts for at the moment. On the other side, there was a "whale" player I knew about half of year ago - he had the Topal island, filled with tonn of the most expensive stuff from the Crown Store: centurions, shards, furniture... Guess what, he played for like 3 months and left.
    It's not all about the money.

    No. I still like it just as much as I did upon first buying it. Looking back at it, I’m in a sense happy that I didn’t hesitate in picking it up Day 1. Outside of the Linchal Grand Manor (which I own as well), it is by far the most posh and luxurious residence to acquire. It blows the other notable homes out of the water. I love to see people talking about how they own the cave in Craglorn, or Daggerfall mansion, only for me to take them to the island and see their reaction. People’s reaction alone makes it worth every crown.

    I’ve no regrets buying it. I’ve also no interest in any other homes I have seen. I don’t do much with housing though.
