    Arrow Rain's Decorating Guide

    I've typed up a list of all the purchasable, craftable, festival, reputation, and taxidermy items and posted it here.

    I've also added it to one of the worksheet tabs on my Character Reference Sheet which can be found at the top of the right column of this page if you would like to have this information as an Excel spreadsheet..

    Pictures of the items are available here. All of the pictures are up now!

    I would like to publish (on the floorplans page) a list of how many of each kind of hook are in each floorplan. If you know that information for your housing type, please post it below.

    I welcome all suggestions on format, content, and typos . Please let me know if this is worth the time I'm putting into it.

    I did some experimenting, and 300x300 seems to be about the ideal size, although it still makes the pages a bit clunky. I'm sorry for the darkness of some of the shots, but some items could only be found in Dwarf country .

    I'm concerned that I wouldn't have the bandwidth to host MP3's of the house music. Any suggestions in that regard?

    I'm also attempting to make it a more comprehensive guide to housing as a whole.

    Items I still need to screenshot. If you have extras, feel free to mail them. If you have one placed on Windfola or Roheryn, please post the address and neighborhood here. I'll update this list as I get new shots.

    Items Needed: None (until Book 12 comes out).

    Does anyone want to host MP3's of the house music?

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    Nice list, very usefull.

    However it needs to include a list of those items/recipes that can only be gotten thru the various reputation vendors.

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    Don't request images at 300 x 300, Cut them down yourself.

  6. #6

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    I'm certainly happy to crop them as well, it's just faster if they're already 300x300.

    I had COMPLETELY forgotten about the reputation vendors...adding that to the list.

    Myn, I've been meaning to get back to your kin hall. I lost all the shots I took of your house with an accidental push of the "Delete" key. Thanks for reminding me.

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    lol sorry i kept missing you earlier... BG got a bit messy :P but our kinhall is still open to you if you need more pix... and if we can catch each other when i'm not spamming heals in an instance... i'd be more than happy to come move some furniture around so you can get better shots

    i had more stuff but i just sold them yesterday to make room in the kinhall storage... if there's anything you really want, i'll stop by the NPCs or AH and grab them before you come over for a nice frosty ale

    ale + camera = hmm.... don't tell my hubby! lol j/k

    I bought a whole lot of stuff for my house on Rohyren (where, thanks to Fastus the pig, money is no object). I've got screenies of most of the non-rep. vendor and crafted items from there. Plus I've got pics of some of the rep. items due to kinfolk getting them for our house. If I can find the time, I'll see about getting at least some of them cropped, hosted and linked. Might be a couple of weeks, though. RL intrudes. /sigh

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    May I suggest including a list of the festival items? E.g. scarecrow, sundial, etc.

    Pictures are up for about 30 or so items. Putting them up as I get them, but I'm officially broke

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    I've been looking high and low for a housing guide with pictures. Thanks for your hard work on this. Looking forward to your additions. I'll try to post some pics as I get them, but you already have most of the items I own.

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    Although your guide is not yet completed, I nominate it for stickitude!

    Please sticky!

    Thanks Rain, this is exactly what I have been looking for. I will take some screenies of things that I have and post here for you to use.

    So completely appreciated. I really like the way you have everything organized.

    When this is completed it will be the ultimate housing guide. Thanks!

    Is there anywhere one might be able to listen to the various musics before having to buy them ?

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    Apparently as an extra bonus, LOTRO includes the ability to feel exceptionally dense for only a gold.

    I bought a house. I walked in the house with my rug & my tree. How do I place the rug in the house? I tried dragging it, using it, etc. No effect.

    How do I buy storage for the house? who sells it? WHat is it called?

    SirGaldalfi told me that Rain's housing guide answered all these things, but all I see is a page with links to pictures.


    Normally when I want to feel stupid, I just consult my children, my boss or my ex-wife. LOTRO homeownership will make it easier than ever for me to feel like a complete dunce. Oh joy.

    On the circle surrounding your minimap, at about the 7 o'clock position there is a "decorating" tab. Click it when you're at your house. Then right click on a housing "hook" that you want to use. You'll get a pop-up window with a slot that looks a bit like an inventory slot. Drag an appropriate item from you invo to that slot (not to the "hook" in your house, but to the slot in the pop-up dialogue box).

    The vendor area in your neighborhood will have a housing vendor NPC. They'll sell, IIRC, a housing chest (might be called "red chest"?). You can buy one for standard house, 2 for deluxe. Equip it in your house.

    All of this was pre Book 12 so if there were any changes your mileage could vary, but I didn't see anything in the Release Notes that would seem to change this.

    On the circle surrounding my minimap? You've got to be kidding! Why would I have looked there?

    Re: Rain's Decorating Guide

    Let me just ask this to confirm it:

    Even though the Lorebook says you only need Acquaintance status with the Elves of Rivendell to buy Elven statues, you actually need ALLY status?

    Source: http://lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Reput...s_of_Rivendell

    Just want to make sure this is the case before I grind my way to Acquaintance standing only to discover I have many miles to go before I sleep.

    Thank you.
