Are you sweaty and covered in dirt, and has your armour taken quite a beating? Why not take some time out, restore your strength, gather bonuses and let others do all the work?
In Runes of Magic, every player receives their own house free of charge right from Level 1. The advantages of home ownership might surprise you:
Taborea’s House Maids are the key to your house!
If you’re a Human, you’ll meet your first House Maid, Meydo, in Logar – or say “hi” to Lamila Dya in the Valley of Preparation if you’re an Elf.
In the Housing Menu, you can manage just about everything in your house. You’ll learn how to use it in the other tabs.
Decorate your house with furniture to expand upon your skills or accelerate the levelling-up process. Most furniture not only looks good, no – it’s also very practical.
Some furniture grants you level-appropriate talent or experience bonuses for every hour you spend at home. Return to your house before logging out of the game to gain bonuses even while you’re offline.
You’ll find everything you could possibly want: rugs, wall decorations and even imposing fireplaces.
The Phirius Token Shop and Lehman in the Class Hall of Varanas offer useful furniture for your home.
This bed increases your furniture XP bonus by 25 points. Your XP bonus is applied hourly when you are at home.
XP (Experience Points) determine when you level up.
This table increases your furniture TP bonus by 25 points. Your TP bonus is applied hourly when you are at home.
TP (Talent Points) can be used to improve your skills.
Having your own facilities makes crafting at home a breeze, and they increase your crafting experience with each use.
There’s something for every craft: anvils for blacksmiths, laboratories for alchemists, pots and pans for chefs and more.
These furniture pieces give you additional storage space.
