@mcknightrider Believe it or not I'm actually trying to help you have a chance of getting YOUR question asked and answered during the stream. If you don't follow the instructions provided by @LieutenantToast in the Original Post your question will just be ignored / skipped. Also, if you ask a question that the development team has previously answered or addressed (even if they stated they are unable to answer it currently) it will also be ignored.
You currently still have 2 questions up... as a result you have a 0% chance of getting either answered as they won't be submitted to MK during stream as valid options.
Finally, @LieutenantToast seems to appreciate the help in getting the question managed as typically she only has 24-hours to prep them for the stream and the number of submissions has risen dramatically.

@redzade - It sounds like someone else already shared a helpful answer with you, in regards to all housing being within a node's ZOI (as everything across Verra is), and thus subject to the risks of being sieged/destroyed.
@Xenantaya - That might come into play more with instanced raids vs. open world ones: https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Raids#Open_world
@ChaosDeda - "Most efficient" will likely depend on how someone plays (questing vs. PvP vs. grinding vs. crafting), so that will all be something we test!

@TJster - Looks like someone pointed you to some helpful info we've shared regarding temples previously: https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Temples

@NorseWarGod - Any cosmetics stated to be limited-time-only (such as those monthly ones) won't be returning, and yes once you purchase a pre-order pack you can purchase the cosmetics from future packs on an individual basis!
@Dante Machiavelli - That is...oddly specific
@lGSMl - Stay tuned for a peek at our next cosmetics, though typically we focus more on Verran celebrations than IRL ones!
@Hog - We plan to give you the ability to adjust what those graphics look like on your end, both for preference and performance: https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Performance
@Ixhixi - This answer would be the same as I shared last time, in that this is something players could likely accomplish on their own - since there have been no stated plans for a court/trial system.
@consultant - Many mechanics can help foster this, from mentorship, to taverns, to community-driven events!

Hope you all have a lovely holiday season, and we'll see you next year!
I missed my chance for this QnA, but there's always next time.
This is kinda important because it is part of the "what is there to do / what to do now?" part of gameplay. Like some other games I play (okay mostly Warframe), there's layers upon layers of progression for each and every component of gameplay, each with room for builds and specificity that suits your style instead of only using best-practice builds.
You can also check out the boss fight in all its 4K glory here!
