The Daily Grind: Are there any zones in MMOs you’d like to call home?

Looks like home.

My wife has long had an affection for Nagrand in World of Warcraft, and that makes sense to me. The gentle rolling terrain looks like the sort of place that would be a delight to live, at once wide open and cozy. Personally, I’d love to be able to set up a home in Final Fantasy XI’s Ronfaure, or perhaps go further afield and nestle myself up in Wajaom. Both of us have a deep and abiding love for the Dravanian Hinterlands in Final Fantasy XIV.

There are lots of different zones in any MMO, and the ones we like the most are not always the one that look the most comfortable or welcoming. You can no doubt think of many zones you like exploring that are cool because of surreal landscapes or challenging regions, but are there any zones in MMOs you’d like to call home?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

I miss my house on Lok in SWG. Had a couple houses, a Cantina, a few factories. It was great. I had a vacation house just outside of Restuss for PvP reasons, too.


Posting screens of different zones (World ofWarcraft) I would love to call home. First and last image show Suramar. Second image is Howling Fjord. Third one is from Shadowmoon Valley (from Warlords of Draenor).

A note about Shadowmoon Valley; I never really looked at that moon (satellite) before. IMO it’s way to close. I guess the developers really got carried away here. Assuming that moon doesn’t cause massive tidal waves, apocalyptic storm systems, or simply crash into the planet, then yeah, I would love to live there :P

Welllllll…it’s in ESO, but not quite the version I have in mind. The Cyrodill of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is for me.

In WoW, I always wanted to move into the little elven cottage right outside of Starfall Village in Winterspring.

I’d like a nice bungalow along the shores of the acid lake on Taris in SWTOR – it’d be so warm and enticing. Or perhaps a poolside cabin in Malenhad in Angmar (LOTRO). ;D

Seriously, I think I’d like the northern Breefields in LOTRO, not far from the Festival grounds.

Oh, that’s easy. Tirisfal Glades


The Sagolii Desert. Or the Mists. Or the Mist.

Or the Manderville Golden Saucer

There’s a strong problem for me with wanting to live in any MMO zone. There’s neighbors who tend to want to eat you. That’s not all MMOs, of course, but it is most by far.

As for the other MMOs, nothing has really appealed to my tastes at this time.

Maybe if we had an MMO with larger peaceful areas and more dangerous places for the adventures (one where we see those peaceful spots at least, as more than just a stopover to craft and buy/sell/repair)…

Pay my share for a media skybox in Second Life. Will retreat to that from a game we are playing. It has a forest cabin theme and a pond. We control who can visit, the music, use voice chat. I think a media skybox is like $8 a month. A nice thing for a guild to own. Anyway, that would be my internet home.
