I want to farm for Base items, but I'm not sure how to go about it. I'm willing to slog through side missions, beat up mobs of AI for drops, or hoard cash for a specific vendor. I'd like to avoid paying any real money, either for the items themselves, or for DLC packs that open missions where the items are available, etc (I've already spent enough real money on other things in the game...for now).
There have been multiple DLC additions to DCUO relating to Bases/Lairs, and a lot of the Base items that exist seem to come from areas that aren't available immediately, according to this thread.
I'm not sure how complete that list is (I'm guessing not very), it's just one of the only sources I could find. But, it's hard to tell just by the location of the item drop whether or not the location is in a DLC episode area, an On-Duty scenario, or maybe just a mission-specific area I haven't reached. I don't want to go looking for items I'm not going to find, so I'm wondering what's even available for me, playing without a membership or DLC mission purchases.
What Base customization items (themed bundles or individual items) are available for purchase with in-game currency, in non-DLC areas? Are there any scripted Base item drops in non-DLC areas?
