How to Purchase a House in No Rest for the Wicked

Want to purchase your own house in No Rest for the Wicked? Here’s how you can make that happen.


Moon Studio’s genre redefining ARPG No Rest for the Wicked is quickly becoming one of the most popular Early Access releases of the year. With a dense, vertical world design, precise, souls-like combat, and plenty of survival elements, the game offers a lot to the players already.

The combat and level-up system might not be a new thing in games of this genre, but No Rest for the Wicked offers plenty of new and interesting mechanics. Cutting down trees for wood or mining for copper and iron, for example, adds a touch of fresh air to the genre.

Another feature that’s used here but not as common in ARPG games is its housing system. Yep, you read that right – in No Rest for the Wicked, you can purchase a house that you can call your own!

But how does it work? And is there any point to this feature, or is it just a useless gimmick?

In this article, we’ll take an in-depth look into this feature and explain why you need to go for it as soon as you can. Let’s dive in!

When you first arrive at Sacrament, you’ll get access to a pretty good number of Merchants in the city and can go practically anywhere you like. However, the option to purchase a house will still be locked.

To get this option, you need to first defeat Falstead Darak, and no, we’re not talking about the first fight on the bridge. You’ll need to hunt him down in The Black Trench (the sewer area), where you fight him again. Once you kill him for good, you’ll get a pop-up notification saying you can now purchase houses in Sacrament.

If you haven’t found Falstead Darak yet, don’t worry about it. You’ll run into him normally as part of the main quest line. So you won’t be missing out on the ability to purchase a house if you play the game.

When you get to Sacrament after defeating the boss, and open up your minimap, you’ll see three icons for houses that you can buy. They are all different sizes, and their cost is also different. Your options are:

  • The Manor: 30 Silver
  • The Homestead: 25 Silver
  • The Roost: 20 Silver

As you might guess, The Roost is the smallest of the lot and also the farthest one from the Cerim Whisper point in the city. That’s why we recommend either going for either The Homestead or The Manor. This will give you easier and quicker access to both the Fast Travel point and the Sacrament Merchants.

Remember, these three Houses aren’t going anywhere even if you can’t afford them just yet. And there’s always a possibility that the devs will add more housing options later down the line.

You can even buy all three of them at the same time and have them all remain active if you want. It’s not a “pick one and forget the rest” sort of deal. Having multiple houses will also allow you to spread out your furniture if that’s what you want to do.

Even if you don’t care for much else, having your own home in the game adds a new layer of immersion to the universe. You can decorate your home with all sorts of furniture that you can buy or craft from the Merchant NPC Whittacker. Some of them are here purely for the decorations.

However, some furniture such as the chests, or even crafting stations that can actually offer real value to the player. Chests let you store your excess goodies that you pick up on your adventure and with inventory space being a huge problem in the game, having this extra stash back home is always worth it.

Bigger houses like The Manor or The Homestead will give you a bigger space to decorate to your liking. But if you’re short on cash, you can even go with The Roost to set up your base. You can even sell them if you want, but we don’t really see much point in that.

Hopefully, this guide could help you understand how the housing system works in No Rest for the Wicked. Sure, it takes a while to get to this point, but there’s no need to rush through the story. Take your time, and you’ll get there eventually. Since the cost of these houses is pretty steep, you’d also have to take on plenty of daily and weekly Challenges and Bounties to save up anyway.
