Purchasing Land for the House

However, most players do find it very difficult to get an available plot, especially in the size that they want. The website, on the other hand, lists down the plots available on a daily basis, so it would be best to check it out.
When the player is done looking for a plot, then they should select a ward and go there. They can check out the number of their plot on the map, as it could be in the subdivision or original area.
