Players can buy a house if they choose, and owning a home in New World has more benefits than just another space to decorate. Houses offer some unique bonuses, buffs, and additional storage. Players will still be able to place furniture in their homes as they see fit. Houses offer some unique bonuses making them a hot commodity for those who live and breathe the world of Aeternum.

Should You Buy A House?

The procedure of purchasing a home in New World is quite straightforward, but players will not be able to go into any town and buy one. They’ll need to gain a certain amount of “standing” in the area where the house is located before they can put down the cash to buy it. Players may earn standing by doing duties in the region, such as quests and town board responsibilities.

The biggest attraction of purchasing a property in New World is the greater storage space. Despite the fact that each town has a storage shed, players that spend a lot of time mining, crafting, chopping wood, and collecting all kinds of ingredients will be swamped with stuff.

Players who own a house can install specialized chests to the interior to gain access to more storage. The amount of chests a player can have in a given house is controlled by the house size and initial cost. And also some sort of chests they manufacture.

The addition of trophies is another perk of house ownership that is sometimes neglected by novice players. These customized decorations can be installed in a residence and provide a worldwide bonus that affects everything from mining and crafting to travel and warfare. Homes also provide players with a free fast travel point every 2-4 hours.
