Which home instance are you using (now that there's something to use it for)?

I just got my Bazaar Ambassador achievement, together with the quartz node that you can add to your home instance.

I don't think any of my characters have been back to their home instance since the last time their personal storyline required it. Now I'm going to have a reason to visit it every day.

So - what race do I give the quartz node to? Like most people I have a character of each race so I could put the node everywhere, but it seems kind of important and irrevocable, particularly if this is just the first in a number of home instance upgrades we can be expecting (it would be pretty weird if this was the only one).

Obviously I can just have five different characters make the run to see which is closest to the asura gate etc., but which city's home instance are other people picking as their main base?

I guess if you just have one main you'll use that city, but I imagine most of us have at least a couple of alts. Since humans are the most populous, will Divinity's Reach now become a population hub again as everyone runs home to mine quartz every day?

Well, I used the quartz node on my human, but when on my sylvari I visited the asuran home instance for the POI, the quartz node was there too, so this may not work like that, you don't seem to have to choose which race's home instance gets it.

You unlock the quartz node for your entire account, not just one character. But I've been collecting it on my Norn since the node is right near the entrance of the home instance.

I tend to favor whichever I'm closest to when I log in! :P

Hoelbrak, it's right near the way point.
