Housing tutorials, guides, reviews, and more
This post is going to kick start a brand new series: Projects by Ali! I have a lot of resolutions this year that I personally want to do in Wizard101, and this is a great way for me to do so, and share my experiences here!
The first project I'll be doing is probably going to be the biggest this year: The Great Sale (hence the name). I have a very bad habit of whenever my backpack gets full, instead of going to the Bazaar and selling un-needed items, I stash it in my house, which makes my houses VERY full. And, since those houses are already decorated, I have to throw the items wherever I have room, and the housing space! Most of my houses are maxed out of items; the ones that are not are real close! I literally ruined a house or 2 because of throwing furniture in there... lol.
Not only have I ruined my houses, I have also put lots of rubbish things in my bank and shared bank- whether it be seeds, fail pets, and useless no auction gear that I don't feel like feeding my pet lol. Especially when there is a team waiting on me to clear out my backpack before entering a battle, I deeply hurry and don't pay much attention to what I toss in my banks and what I toss in my castles. Anyone have the same habit? I bet some do, just not near as bad! lol
So how am I doing this project?
To begin, when I have time, I am going through my houses and picking up any furniture that has been thrown there and I don't need. Sometimes I'll just throw a table in the backyard lol. If I don't need it, it's going! There's no "I will need this someday" and "This could be useful," NOPE! If I am not currently using it, it's being sold to the Bazaar!
How did I ever get 'Nailed Boards'? And why did I keep them? lol
Bazaar line XD
I constantly had to keep going out into Olde Town and the Shopping District to get more mana from marking my spot. It did make it a lot quicker, however, to go to my house, get items, then instantly go to the Bazaar, and repeat.
Get back here, mana!
After I went through all my houses taking out the for-sure-don't-need-items, I had well over 70,000 gold. I went from 7,000 (literally) to 70,000, just going through houses! Wow!
My shared bank and bank weren't as bad as I thought; I made 10,000 more from selling everything un-needed in there.
Then, because I didn't have much time left until I had to go, I went to one of my other characters. Her houses didn't have any items; I rarely play on her and her backpack doesn't get full often. I did find some items in her bank though to sell and made about 5,000 of that ;)
At the end, I had made...
Wow! All that! I couldn't believe going through two characters and made that much gold! And, I am still NOT done with The Great Sale! There are still plenty more banks to go through! I can't wait! It feels good to finally sell some of these items I've been holding onto for so long!
Do you have anything to get rid of in your bank, shared bank, backpack or houses? Now's the best time! 2017 isn't far into its year and if you start doing good things now, you'll be able to do better later! I plan to redo 2 of my houses! That will be fun! I'll share those experiences too!
Sell, sell away my wizards!
See you in The Bazaar!
