LOTRO is the case study of what NOT to do when designing housing!
To be 100% honest she is right, eq2 housing blows lotro online housing out of the water.
What lotro has is a step up from games like wow, that doesn’t have housing, or runes of magic (where there is no free items for your house, so its a empty room with a chest), but miles behind EQ2 whose housing is a big draw into the game.
SWG’s housing also has a good rep, and was probably an inspiration to the fallen earth programmers when they were looking at adding social element to their game.
Wizard 101 also has a lovely housing system, you start with a free room and free items from quests or crafting and work your way up to amazing houses and items dropped from high level dungeons.
Free Realms, I really hope that you stole hugely from EQ2 (the videos suggest yes) when you designed your player housing.
