The best spot i have been able to find is the small island north of a shrine, where only a Large Tower will fit. Yes this is possibly the best spot in all of britania, but Im wondering if you guys have found some other good spots.

I also found a Peninsula on Mainlands where you need to go through a forest that is about 7 spaces wide. Bad thing is only an L shape will fit there.

Thx for the help

I know of a location for a large spot in the Malas on the Pacific shard if that is of any help.

i play on a couple differenet free servers. I run a guild and we are starting to branch out to different servers to get a different type of gameplay feel. Im just wondering if you guys know of any good locations. I probally can place a house anywhere, as most spots aren't taken. I have a place in hidden valley if thats what you were thinkin!

not good, the best!

:) the best is definable as what you want.. to me.. you want to be alone, where no one can just stop by your door and ask you whats up. :) I personally think the best is being alone, but with bank access a screen away.. I love my Skara Brea Bank house :)

There's also a spot in Tokuno that is right next to a pretty waterfall in the game graphics. I saw someone build a waterfall on their house that flowed into the one in the landscape, and it looked awesome.

The "best" spot is pretty subjective. Since I moved back to Atlantic, right now "best" to me is anyplace I can fit at least a 9x14! (the smallest 3-story house size).

Devin123:
The spot I think you are talking about is Justice Isle.
A nice 13x18 plot will fit there.
As I have that spot on Napa.. Very nice local.. No spawn area.

I used to have 2 18x18 houses right outside the Zento gate, north from the moongate.
Heh, you could actually see the moongate from the bottom right tile of the second house.
Bank was about 10 seconds walk, same like all other shops.

But then I felt like making a buck and sold off those places.
(Made 150mil though, which I all blew on useless junk)

I also liked my moonglow graveyard house!
Small 7x7 house made from marble that fit really well there. :)

I'm quite happy with my 18x18 a minutes walk north of luna. But I'd exchange it for a smaller one on the skara brae island - these are the top spots IMO

But in the end, it's all personal taste and what you are looking for in a house. I wouldn't mind a castle near britain either :laugh:

No kidding? I ran around tokuno looking for a spot and couldn't find anything - not sure which island I was on though! The one where the bank is :) If you find anything, holler! :) Thanks!

Kitiara it is still open but it is really really small like a small cottage type maybe 7x7. I thought is was bigger then that. I will keep looking. I know someone in my guild was selling a 18x18 for 20mil lastnight not sure if he sold it yet.

I always thought the house spot in the mountains where the entrance to wind is was the best spot in game
