The mitheral I had went poof in a mistaken button click with no conformation. The other reason I wont be buying any. It just looks to me like Turbine wants you to oops spend your mitheral so they can sell you more.
I have four accounts--one VIP and three premium with all the expansions (except HD yet)--so I have four houses and two kinship houses. All of them had the maximum number of chests. Combining all the chests into one does not give me the ability to upgrade any chests for gold as they are now already at 60/90. If I want extra room, I will have to pay a minimum of 850 TP for each chest I want to upgrade.
Hmmm, I could just create a couple of new accounts and buy some new houses with level 60 chests (all for gold, mind you) and bypass the high price of upgrading chests. LOL, that would also give me a place for all that extra furniture that is now sitting in chests waiting for changes in the hook system. Wow, I could even buy the cheaper houses as those chests will upgrade the same as the deluxe. Cool! I am saving money (game and RL) with this change. Thanks Turbine!
Don't mind me...just thinking out loud. = )
The ridiculousness of purchasing virtual currency for real money...then exchanging virtual currency for ANOTHER in-game virtual currency so you can buy something, is pretty much just an elaborate cover for getting you to spend extra money.
Especially when you look and see Mithril Coin versions of things that are more expensive than the exact same TP counterpart.
As far as your strategy for saving money, I thought this at first and then I realized, getting to 60 costs 156 gold anyways! I guess you save on Mithril but it's still expensive. If you go standard instead of deluxe, though, you do save the 6 gold in their prices.
I'm afraid people are going to get like 18 alt accounts and buy up whole neighborhoods' standard houses (there are a good 10 in my neighborhood) since buying a house and 30 storage for 7-8 gold is cheaper than upgrading past 30 . . . . . I'm actually tempted to dust off some old alt accounts lol.
*Just stay under the 2g gold cap
*raise a lvl 15 toon on alt acct
*send it gold from main (be careful to stay under 2g or you lose money)
* buy a standard house in your main's neighborhood
*give main acct toons permission
*Upgrade to 30 slots from main toon
I mean, I understand that I couldn't tell Turbine or WB anything about what to do, any more than I can tell Microsoft to stop making their programs edit me by default, but the increased price of housing storage is ridiculous, and in many ways worse than before.
I also just noticed that no one has said, 100 MC ~in addition to~ the 100 you might want for a 3rd spec ~on each toon~

I'm going to admit to being a real-estate hog. I have four accounts -- each with the currency cap removed. For each account, there is a deluxe house which has 90 slots of storage (45 per chest / 2 chests ). Then you have the ability to purchase a good deal of storage within personal storage. I also created my own Kinship and let it mature to the point that owning a Kinship house and deluxe house on one account was possible. Why go through the hassle? The price of extra storage and the paltry amount of additional slots. My main account has 9 character slots -- 8 are permanent and 1 for when I want a quick infusion of 100 or more TPs by using up reputation items and completing Ered Luin deeds.
If I felt the need, I would create a fifth account and grab a standard House (1 chest - 45 spaces for less than 2g) before I would hand over 850 TPs for 15 virtual slots of storage. It doesn't matter where they are (personal storage, shared storage, wardrobe storage, or housing chests). What I have done is extreme and works. My crafters maintain their own warehouse of supplies within personal storage along with one-shot recipes. I'm not the only one to do this. Some would say I am wasting a lot on housing fees. I beg to differ. After a while, gold is easier to come by. It doesn't drop from the sky in buckets or anything -- but, it's easier to get. Therefore, the fees aren't so bad. And if I did loose the houses someday, I'm not out any real money spent on 15 virtual spaces.
I'm a Premium player.
My houses are all in the same neighborhood. I am not a total loon.
But, if I make two new accounts and buy two new houses, I don't have to buy the maximum space. I can go the cheapest route which would be a standard house for one gold, 15 slots for one gold, the next 15 slots for five gold for a total of 7 gold for 30 slots x 2 accounts would give me 60 slots for 14 gold. That, I think, is a lot better than 156 gold.
Yes, I think Turbine is about to see a huge jump in account creation. Of course, that may be a plus for them as they can say, "Look how many accounts our game has!"
