Housing Overview
Housing is one of the core features in New World and ties in with the crafting system, which lets players craft furniture for their own homes or to sell it on the trading post. A personal house also gives you several advantages such as fast travel and trophy buffs. In New World, player houses are part of the many settlements that can be found and conquered in the various territories of Aeternum. While the settlement itself can change hands between different factions and companies, players' homes are unaffected by war and Corrupted Invasions.

Houses are semi-instanced in New World, so that multiple players can purchase and use the same house, but they will only be able to enter and manage their own version of it. It is also possible to invite up to 4 other players to your house by inviting them to a group with you.

Purchasing a House
To be able to purchase a house, players must first reach certain level requirements:

Level 15 - 1st house
Level 35 - 2nd house
Level 55 - 3rd house

You must also reach a certain standing in the territory. You can do this by undertaking missions, quests and town projects, or simple killing monsters.

There are different types of houses, with different sizes and features. For example some houses have gardens or balconies, while others only have a front porch. Of course their location also plays a role, with some being more central and close to important town facilities such as crafting stations. This comes with different costs, so if you want a larger house in a good spot, you better be prepared to pay a premium.

Houses in settlements have tiers. Each tier of houses comes with a different cost and a different set of benefits, with the most expensive houses conferring the greatest benefits.

TIER 1 - 5,000 coin
  • House fast travel cooldown: 4h
  • Max pieces of storage furniture allowed: 1
  • Max number of pets: 5
  • Max number of lights: 4
  • Territory standing required to purchase: Level 10

TIER 2 - 10,000 coin
  • House fast travel cooldown: 3h
  • Max pieces of storage furniture allowed: 2
  • Max number of pets: 6
  • Max number of lights: 6
  • Territory standing required to purchase: Level 15

TIER 3 - 15,000 coin
  • House fast travel cooldown: 2.5h
  • Max pieces of storage furniture allowed: 3
  • Max number of pets: 7
  • Max number of lights: 8
  • Territory standing required to purchase: Level 20

TIER 4 - 20,000 coin
  • House fast travel cooldown: 2h
  • Max pieces of storage furniture allowed: 4
  • Max number of pets: 8
  • Max number of lights: 10
  • Territory standing required to purchase: Level 30

In order to purchase a house simply walk up to your desired house and press the default key of "E" to bring  up the housing UI. From there you can purchase the house.

First Home Purchase Discount in New World
The first time you buy a house in New World you will be given a 50% discount. This discount will apply to any territory and any tier of house as long as you have never purchased a house before. Therefore, you could save up 10,000 coin and purchase the 20,000 coin home for your first home and receive a massive discount on the largest house in the game. However, in order to do so you would have to have a territory standing of at least 30 in the applicable territory, so you would have to wait a little while prior to buying your first home which would delay the benefit of fast travel etc.

It is important to point out that if you purchase a house and then abandon that house you will not receive the first time home buyer discount again. 

Territory Standing & Home Ownership
Territory standing bonus cards are rewarded to players upon receiving reputation within a given territory. Reputation is received upon completing tasks within that territory, and you can then choose from a variety of different buffs and benefits available to you in that applicable territory. The bonuses are not global. They only apply to the territory you  are in. You can view you territory standing rewards by viewing the map screen and clicking on "Territory Standings" on the left side of the screen. From there you can select a territory and view the rewards you currently have. 

Territory standing is important part of player housing because some of the territory standing rewards relate to the housing in New World. Below is a chart of all the available territory standing rewards:

Reward Card         | Base Effects
Faction Tokens      | Earn 5% more Faction Tokens in a given territory
Gather              | Increase Gathering speed by 5% in a given territory
Housing Items       | Increase the number of Housing items you can place by 5 in a given territory
House Ownership     | You can own a house in a given territory
Property Tax        | Decrease Property Tax by 5% for owned property in a given territory
Standing Gain       | Earn 5% more Territory Standing while in a given territory
Station Fee         | Decreases Crafting fee by 5% while in a given territory
Storage             | Increases Storage by 25
Trading Tax         | Decreases the Trading tax rate by 5% while in a given territory
XP Gain             | Earn 3% more XP while in a given territory

By increasing your territory standing you are rewarded with the ability to own a home in a given territory, you can increase the number of housing items you can place in your home in a given territory, and decrease your property taxes in a given territory. It's important to point out that most of the cards listed do have a diminishing return as you continue to level up those specific perks.

Property Taxes
Owning a house in a settlement will result in Property tax being due once every 7 days. The property tax rate is set and modified by the territory's controlling company, and each house has a base property tax that can be viewed in the housing menu while at a particular house.  Failure to pay the property tax will result in the following:

  • Recall to your home will be disabled
  • You will not be able to decorate your house
  • You will not be able to invite other players into you house
  • Your trophy buffs will not be active
  • You will not be able to use your storage containers located in your house

It's important to point out that your property taxes do not accrue. Therefore, if you take a month break from the game and come back you will not owe an absurd amount of money in property taxes. You will still only owe 7 days worth of taxes. As long as your taxes are paid for the week, you will receive the benefits of the house for that week.

Visitors to Your Home
Other players can visit your house and see your decorations as long as they are in your party. You can host up to a total of 5 players in your home. This includes yourself. You can also utilize the housing menu to see a list of players that own a home, and view their home by clicking the enter button on the menu.  Once you're in someone else's home you can not decorate or move items, you can only view the house.   

New World features hundreds of different furniture items. Most of these can be crafted by players and sold on the trading post. This includes chairs, tables, beds and garden decorations. You will also be able to find rare furniture and trophies while looting mobs and from other rewards.

Some of these trophies can give you powerful buffs if displayed in your home. For example they can improve your crafting skills or make you more powerful in combat against certain types of enemies. There is a maximum limit on how many trophies can be active at once, though, so players will have to make a choice.

Decorations also server another purpose. While your own house instance is private, it's possible for other players to see your house when walking past - but only if you have the best decorated house in that location. This is determined by a ranking system that gives your house a score depending on its decoration and your territory standing. You can even see a list of the highest ranked players for each house. Of course you will always be able to see your own home, but other players can only see it from the outside if you happen to have the highest-ranked house.

How Trophies Work in New World
Trophies are a type of furniture in New World that can be placed around your home. If you have a trophy placed and active it will provide you will persistent global buffs. You can place trophies in your home by entering the decorate menu while in your house. This can be done by entering your house and pressing the default decorate key of "B." You can view all of the trophies you have a available to place by clicking the trophies icon while in the decorate menu.

Trophies are divided into four different categories as follows:

  • Combat Trophies: Provide a damage bonus while fighting enemies that correspond with the active trophy type (example: Ancient Earth Trophy will provide you with increased damage against the Angry Earth Enemy types.) 
  • Crafting Trophies: Will improve your minimum gear store when crafting items that correspond with that trophy type (example: Armoring Trophy will increase you minimum gear score when crafting armor)
  • Gathering Trophies: Increases your luck with the specific gathering skill that corresponds with the active trophy (example: Mining trophy will grant you mining luck which increase your chance at obtaining rare mining items)
  • Loot Luck Trophies: Will provide you a bonus when looting to help increase your chances of finding rare items from chests and monsters. 

You can place a maximum of 5 trophies per house regardless of the tier of house owned. The effects of the trophies will not stack when the same type is placed in the same house, however, the effects will be stacked when they are placed in different houses. Therefore, you can stack up to 3 trophies of the same type. Please note that if you do not pay your property tax the benefits of that particular house will not be active.

House Recall
Player houses in New World serve as a recall point, so you can fast travel to your home from anywhere in the world. This also makes it important to choose a good location for your houses, because you can only own a maximum of 3 houses.  The higher tier the house the lower the cooldown on your houses fast travel timer.

Tier 1 - 4 hours
Tier 2 - 3 hours
Tier 3 - 2.5 hours
Tier 4 - 2 hours

If you fail to pay your property tax for a particular house the house recall to that house will not be available until you pay your property tax. 

Additional Storage
You can increase your storage bin capacity in an applicable territory through owning a home in that territory and placing down a storage chest inside of the house. Upon placing a storage bin inside of your house your storage shed's weight limit for the settlement your house is in will increase.  The tier of your house will determine the amount of storage chests you can place. There are different types and tiers of storage chests that will allow you to store more with higher tier chests. You can see the list of storage chests below, and you can check our database for a comprehensive list of housing furniture.  

 | Storage Chest Type            | Storage Amt  | Rarity   | Tier
