Crafting the Treetop Getaway (ftMLAU) Pt. 2

Now the question that you’re probably asking is: “What in the heck hound is a ftMLAU. Like seriously. I see something in there that I recognize, but it does not fill me with hope at all! MLA!? Like MLA format in English? Because if we’re talking about that annoying format-y thing I’m just gonna click away right now because no way am I doing that during summer break absolutely not.” Well, never fear! “ftMLAU” stands for “for the More Lazy Among Us” because let’s be real here, who has time for these crazy recipes! I definitely don’t. So I wanted to share how I do some craft-y things in the most lazy manner and actually (hopefully) succeed…

So, about two years ago now, I posted this article called “Crafting the Treetop Getaway” and I talked about how I wanted to tackle the recipe, despite the fact that it would be really difficult. Flash forward to about a year later and I finally succeeded. I think when assessing how long it took me to craft this house it’s important to note that I started this series off with the “for the more lazy among us” in the title…sooo….

  • Crafting Time (for the more lazy among us): 1 year

I’m just gonna leave that right there…

To be honest, actually it didn’t take me the whole year to specifically craft the house- to grab all the ingredients and some such things. Actually I crafted a few things, became too busy to continue, did some other things, W101 released some more content, and suddenly the rare reagents and items needed for this weren’t so rare anymore and I had more gold than I knew what to do with. I crafted this house in under a week. (Now let’s talk about how I did that…)

So, because I’m crazy I decided to craft the Treetop Getaway. In an awesome preview-article (clickie ze link) by Duelist you can also see more photos of what the house looks like and it’s gorgeous. I don’t think I can actually name my favorite thing about it because it was designed that well. When I first began playing Wizard101 the first home I ever bought was the Life House in the Crowns Shop. I mean, I had a fire character, but that didn’t matter at all. Living in a treehouse??? Count me in! This new home, the Getaway, is like the awesome upgrade to that. (have I used the word awesome too much? I don’t think so XD)
