WildStar Guide:How to Maximizing your housing buff


It is known to all that there are 5 kinds of housing buffs, Aroma, Comfort, Lighting, Pride and Ambience. These buffs control how much rested XP you get when logged off in your house. But by this point you probably already know that. You have also learned that getting a lot of small lights does not consitute a large lighting buff etc. So I have complied a very simple list of the items that you can easily find and afford that will give you the large buffs so you can obtain the most rested xp possible. (Note these can be shrunk down as small as possible and will still give the maximum buff so you don’t have to show off something you think looks stupid. Size doesn’t matter here 😉 Secondly, it can be inside or outside of your house.) Also one last word before I move on, rested xp matters at 50 as well. It increases your Elder point gathering, which turns into Elder gems. So even if you are already 50, you should look at this.

Lighting: Draken Tallhorn Brazier Location: Whitevale Quartermaster (In Palerock Post) Cost: 3s 69c
Pride: Chua Bookshelf (Tall) Location: Housing vendor Cost: 4g
Aroma: Wooden Wall Planter Location: Housing Vendor Cost: 1g 50s
Ambience: Charming Bar Location: Housing vendor Cost: 4g
Comfort: (This one is a bit tricky as anything that you can buy from the housing vendor costs 15000 renown or more.) Therefore the best option (for cheap/free) is this: Granok Four Poster Bed Location: Moonshine cabin challenge; rare drop (If spending 15000 renown floats your boat, the Draken Sofa gives the large comfort buff.)

The next best way is to contact your friendly neighborhood architecht. Or go to the auction house. Either way the supplies or the cost of these items shouldn’t be too high. Here are a few choices.
Large Comfort Buff Items (Architecht):
Stonebrick Lopp Fireplace Cost: Ironbark Wood x4, Titanium Chunk x2
Comfortable Dominion Bed Cost: Augmented Hardwood x3, Rockhide Leather x2, Manaweave Cloth x2
