    As Christmas is coming up, I would like to purchase a cosmetic for someone who already has an account.

    Can (and if so can you let us know exactly how) I do this?

    What do you have planned for the release patch when it comes to "end game" activities?

    The reason I ask is you know normally games release with so little todo once we have grinded to cap.

    I under that we will still want to level nodes but what can we expect to be doing daily and weekly?
  • When will players that bought the game through my.com also be invited to alpha/beta tests, since the my.com account isn't yet linked to ashes of creation account?
  • Please can you explain why player names are restricted to minimum 3 characters and not minimum 2 characters like Archeage and other MMO's.

    Could it be changed to minimum 2 characters thanks    3

    As a fan of hidden areas and puzzles I was happy to hear when you confirmed jumping puzzles to be in the game. I am wondering which scale these will have: 

    Will there be a big variation where some will take you to large secret dedicated areas like in gw2 or will it be something smaller? Are there going to be other kind of puzzles like logical thinking, hidden entrances in mountains etc?  <3  <3 <3
  • Are you planning on adding a music creation system in game, similar to Lord of the Rings Online? This could be a cool function, letting bards make a custom melody and attaching it to their spells. 
  • for the 12th time any more in-depth news on the summoner?
  • Can you please specify AoC: Apocalypse release TIME for EU (and shutdown time)? Where can I download a luncher?
  • Can there be a reward system for people who spend time submitting bugs and/or helping people resolve and work-around theirs?

    I think this would help incentivize more people to help find bugs, help others resolve them, and ultimately helps the developers out!
    It also would put a little less focus on grinding out in-game rewards for testing.

    I a few short questions. Thanks.

    1. Is there any plan to rename some of the class names? And if so could that be a community event?

    2. How does the name reservation work? Is it account based, server based, do I have to choose the server I want my reserved name on? how will two people who want the same name and play on different servers work? And will the naming convention allow accent letters like, á, é, í, ó, ú, ü?

    3. Are you worried about over saturation of cosmetics coming from Apocalypse and testing leaving the MMORPG short on visual gear progression?




  • About what percentage of total land can actually be useable for Freeholds?

    Assuming there is a SA server. Will the subscription price be converted to local currency like WoW? Dollar is a strong currency here.
  • Are you planing on implementing a kind of point system into the mmorpg to limit the amount of crafting/gathering one person can do?

    Would it be possible for you to you kindly be a tad more constructive by possibly showing us evidence to support your response, after all, we're asking the question because we haven't been able to locate the information ourselves.

    That way we can remove answered questions so that other unanswered ones get addressed.

    In the siege testing, as well as the full game, will there abilities to help the shot callers. Such as being able to draw pathways on a map (like how planetside 2 has), or pings to direct teammates on where to be positioned.

    I'm concerned that debuffs for corrupt players could hinder the possibility for role play and some seriously epic player interaction. Don't you think the increased death penalty could be enough to deter over ganking? 
  • Why do you answer questions from third party software and not from your own forums?

    Will Ashes of Creation support  SLI  (utilize both graphic cards vs only one) ?

    What are the end user graphic solutions Intrepid Studio's investigating?

     Any plans to optimize graphics for the APOC series of games?  (I noticed my 880M's only one card utilized versus both and was only receiving 16 fps under load at lowest settings as a result.)

    I have played many MMO's and the skin palates some prefer were missing, namely the dark skin palates's.  Will there be dark skin options for people to play, a variety,  or what?   (people should be able to play with a skin palate they are comfortable with! )
