Housing systems, while not present in all of them, have always been an important part of MMORPGs. They give players a place to call their own, where they can relax, and that they can customize and/or use for various activities. With Black Desert Online slightly leaning towards a Sandbox theme, it could be no exception to this rule. It is even an essential element in the enjoyment of several aspects of this game.

The houses in Black Desert Online indeed have many utilities. You could, for example, invite friends or bring members of your guild there, to have a chat, and show off your interior designer skills. Crafters will also be able to install facilities in their homes to avoid paying to use those available publicly.

Houses will also be pretty convenient to traders, offering them a place to store goods that they can then sell when the prices go up and they make the most profit.

Some houses also have additional features that will provide players with unique activities on their own. For example, some of them will have auxiliary spaces for agriculture where it will be possible to grow fruits and vegetables that you can then sell in the different markets.

How to acquire a home?

Unfortunately, and despite in numerous Sandbox traits, Black Desert Online does not allow players to build their houses. The accommodations available are pre-built, just waiting to be acquired by a player. The game offers thousands of location in different parts of the map.

But keep in mind that the ownership of a Guild House is not set in stone. Once a house is rented, you will be required to pay a special tax. In case of default of payment, the house will be back on the market so that other players may be able to rent it, and any possession you had stocked there will be mailed to you.

This is due to the fact that the number of such houses is limited. Due to the population of servers, it will be impossible to guarantee that everyone will be able to obtain house. It should also be noted that once a house is back in the market, everyone will have a chance to acquire it. Instead of a first come, first served system, Black Desert Online introduces a bidding system for the acquisition of home, the highest bidder by the time bidding period ends winning it.

Finally, keep in mind that when you acquire a house, it will be completely empty. You will then be required to furnish and decorate it to your tastes. Furniture can either be purchased, or crafted by the players themselves (by hiring a worker), offering a great deal of possibilities. And in addition to looking good, some furniture items can provide buffs to your character.

As you can see, owning a house in Black Desert Online provides various benefits, making acquiring one early in the game (when prices are still low) quite worthwhile.
