There is a large social aspect surrounding Wynncraft that has not been encouraged in-game directly. It is not just an adventuring game. Plenty of people like to socialize and host community events. Just look at events such as Wynncon, Battle Royal, and the upcoming ANO Spring Fling event. While one of these wasn't hosted in-game, the other two were/will be. There hasn't been many features in Wynncraft that promotes this socialization aspect. It's mostly all just kill and explore right now, and I would like to have more community interaction to an extent. Also, I highly doubt players will stay inside their House all the time. If they do, they are essentially pulling the ol' "Detlas AFK" because there isn't a lot of benefits that would encourage a player to stay in their house all day. I personally would use my house to store my items, set spawns, create builds, and invite my friends over to socialize and such. There are multiple reasons why we aren't just soldiers for Wynn, and actual citizens in some areas. For example, you earn your citizenship in Troms when doing "The Passage" quest there. And if you talk to the Ragni Guard in Ragni, he suggests that you are a Citizen of Wynn at this point for all of your deeds. I believe we can safely assume that the player eventually becomes a citizen of the province after doing several deeds around the province.
