Will players become part of lore in future updates?

This is something I've always wanted to see in other MMOs but never happens on a significant scale. Basically, players accomplish epic feats during their careers; wouldn't it be nice to have a building, spell, event in history, magic item/weapon etc named after them and manifested as actual content/items/structures in the game at a later time? So by expansion X everyone can not only see the impact of players on the world but hold or reference a remenent of it.

    Who wouldn't love to wield the Staff of Iateallthecookies or live in Newbslayer69 Road? :D
    Nevertheless there will be a trophy park which is kind of what you asked for: https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Nodes#Trophy_park

    Someone really wants to get that Longbow of Xx_Shadow_X_Wolf_xX, huh?

    I think they said yes on this if the player does something epic.

    Amazing idea only as others have mentioned, the names are a bit of an issue. 
    Where there is light, there is shadow. I am the shadow without the light. The shadow of nothingness. The VoidShadow

    I worked in a children's doctors office for a while and i had access to info on over 6000 kids. I kid you not i saw a kid named Shadow Hunter Knight. Like what kind of messed up parent names their kid that? 
    Or maybe it was Hunter Shadow Knight. Can't quite remember

    Mother worked in the juvenile court system in the 80s. Had a kid come through the system, Last name: Slaughter First and Middle: Tomato Slick. This was not a gang name or an aka. Real name Tomato Slick Slaughter.

    This system was put in place so that legends like myself can be contained by the game ;)

    The name problem can be avoided by not using names but titles like TES does with its heroes in the lore. Basically just dont say the players name outright in lore but hint towards it and player themselves will know who did what.

    For example lets say player named xXx_Shadowwolfxz69_xXx did something epic in great battle  you could refer to him simply as Wolf or think of some title/nickname/whatever the correct word is. 
    (Was going to write example but I cringed half to death writing it.)

    every post from me is struggle of lurker trying to post

    Leeroy Jenkins is a great example of players becoming in-game lore

    The dead do not squabble as this land’s rulers do. The dead do not fight one another. The dead have no desires, no petty jealousies or ambitions. A world of the dead is a world at peace

    I met a girl named Allanfa Dân once, which in my native language means fire exit. Great suggestion though @Ravudha.

    An example I thought of would be like Sword Art Online 2: the first group/guild to clear that floor has their names etched at the exit.

    Then I imagine a hardcore guild boasting about being the first ones to kill a boss only to see the names of some unknown guild got there first.  :smirk:

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Since the game is truely player driven, we get to determine who is worth remembering.

    I can't wait to see guilds rise and fall.
