Since the time I made this post early yesterday I’ve been considering for what purpose could a private/personal island serve? So I worked up the cash to buy one and today I have placed a few buildings and have been working up the resources to get them built and operational.
After looking over the list of buildings, I discovered that there are exactly enough plots on a private island to place all of the buildings under the Farm tab as well as placing a house. So I have done exactly that. I’m currently raising some corn and chicks (gotta get them guys fed!) and also working to get my house and cook finished.
My working theory is that a private island could be used by individuals as a farm, raising crops and livestock necessary to maintain the other buildings on the guild island and eventually a territory. I’m not sure how high buildings such as cook and alchemy can be upgraded; it looks like food and potions only go up to Tier 5 or 6 right now. If that’s the case, I’m wondering if all of these items could be crafted on the island.
