    So I am waiting on a house to fall, but its been in "Greatly Worn" state for days now and hasn't changed to IDOC...As far as I can read the GW stage should only last a day, not many days. Was this changed.

    As far as I know nothing has changed - houses i have been watching have been changing as usual. The period between Greatly and Idoc is actually a day and a half not a day. Thus if it was greatly say Monday morning it could easily still be greatly Tuesday morning as well - check again you will probably find it turns very soon.

    Are you sure that the house name is not "Greatly Worn"?
    That would do it.

    Post a pic of your mouse on the house sign in question with the information displayed on it.

    There is a house on Oceania shard which has as it's name, "This house is greatly worn". Only thing is, experienced IDOC'ers know that this house does not actually have a decay status, and is simply named that way.

    The joke's on you if this is a house named in such a way. ;)

    It just went IDOC...so no, its not the houses name.

    How long does a house stay in IDOC phase then before falling? Would like to get it fairly fast.

    Nominally its 7 hours but its usually around 6 hours 55 mins. In rare cases they sometimes go an extra hour.

    The only thing better than getting the house spot is getting some decent loot with it. :)

    My best hauls so far have been some Tokuno dyes, and 120k worth of iron ingots in commodity deeds. :)

    There was also this customizable house plot that dropped at an odd time, when I was the only one there, and I scooped up a crazy amount of unravelable junk. Thanks to unravel container, imbuer went through it in a matter of minutes. Even though all of it was low-end, it boosted his stocks of magical residue and enchanted essence.

    The Tower was striped bare by the owner who was letting it fall. This spot is more worth to me than a ton of artifacts or a castle. So the spot itself is valuable beyond measure and I am very happy in getting it.
