Anyone else really disappointed that we cant buy it with ingame golds, only with crowns? Also how come, when Exorcised Coven Cottage (basicly same size) was purchasable with golds?

    Very disappointed. Good price but I can’t afford crowns with real money. And it’s too much work to gift a house.

    MAX CP, played since beta, yes I know the game. Also worked in software dev/ops so yes, I know what I'm talking about.

    If you read this and rolled your eyes, maybe you need to stop assuming women don't know ***.

    I spent a fair bit of time on my EU toons also to get enough gold to buy the house for them. Don't play them a lot anymore, my friend in England hasn't been on much lately, but I loved that house and wanted it to be my primary for both servers. now though, I think I'm going to delete all of my EU toons and be done with them.

    I'm so disappointed. I really wanted it for my Christmas house. :'( @ZOS_GinaBruno I would like to beg, and please, and mew, and grovel that ZOS please make it available for gold those of us who can't afford to buy crowns can buy ourselves a lovely holiday gift.

    Yep, a lot of us are disappointed (I've seen and posted in several related threads). I think all of us were hoping it would be available for gold as the Cottage was, but ZOS had other ideas. Guess they like playing the role of the Grinch at Christmas.

    The holiday furnishing pack would have been enough, as I think a lot of players would have bought it, and many probably still will. I won't, however, even though I could decorate another home with it.

    But, I can console myself with the fact that the home itself isn't really all that great. I was rather disappointed with it, actually, but I thought, well for $250K gold or so, I'd still get it. But for Crowns? Nope. It's an Imperial lighthouse in a snow globe. How does that even make sense, since lighthouses are, you know, near water to guide ships. Plus, it's in Eastmarch, land of the Nords, so you know, a Nord cottage would have made much more sense.

    Then, there's the fact that they stuck the barn from Linchal Manor to the back of it - it's a really odd space with no windows, iirc. So, yeah, not so hard to pass on it, although I like the snowy exterior. But, the skybox is awful.

    ETA: I really shouldn't be so salty, as they did give us the Grand Psijic Villa for free. And, I like the idea of CS exclusive homes that aren't giant monstrosities with exorbitant price tags. However, I still think this home should have been treated like the Exorcised Cottage, especially considering that we really aren't getting many new homes for gold.

    A lighthouse in a snowglobe... think souvenir... I'm pretty sure various locations in Tamriel have their own version of tourist traps complete with junk gift shops that sell things no one needs to show they visited a place...

    I'm delighted with ZOS on this house. We have asked them to bring out more medium houses and here they give us a medium house, with 600 slots, for 4800crowns.
    This house represents a positive move in terms of CS houses. Yes, I know it would have been nice to have had a gold option but maybe they are testing he water to see if more people will buy houses if they stop charging €100$ for them.
    I really hope this trend continues and we see more medium homes under 5000 crowns.
    Thanks for listening on this one ZOS

    Ditto - you said what I was thinking as well. I'm happy with the house and 600 slots!

    My thanks to ZOS as well.
