Hello fellow adventurers to the world of Verra. Since I believe that finding information about the game can be hard at times. And that I want to make sure the community is well up to date on the game I made this guide. Also please bear in mind that ashes is a game in active development and certain things may change over time.

FAQ
  • Nodes are a very big central part to Ashes of Creation. And that may make you ask what are nodes? They are explained by intrepid here.

  • In Jahlon's series they are explained in way more in depth here.
  • The game has no box price but will have a subscription fee of 15$ per month.
  • There are 40 man raids.
  • The server cap goal is currently 10,000.
  • The map size is about 480km^2 with an additional 100km^2 of Underrealm which is the underground home of the tulnar race. For reference vanilla wow is 207 km^2 and skyrim pre expacs is 37km^2

    @Xyxs
    Update to what? Are you a Kickstarter backer? The pioneer and Braver of Worlds roles were kickstarter goals on ks. If you are a backer and still don't have your role I suggest pinging. @MargaretKrohn or @LieutenantToast on the forums and/or discord or sending in a ticket.
    Also you may want to post questions here
    https://forums.ashesofcreation.com/categories/support-faq
    Did I answer your question and do you have others? :)

    Yeah for some reason there is no mention of the ninth race that we have known about for months on the website. :D
    Glad I could help. :)

    Oh if only it was so easy to make them realise the stupidity of asking again and again, well at least we are 1% closer to making them realize ;) great job c:

    I hope its used as such we need to curb the amount of people asking about raids during streams and those confused about why they cant play APOC.

    Yep until the web team grows and updates the website. I hope my guide can be helpful. Since new players should really know there's nine races(#tunlnar best race) and that there is a sub fee and raids among other things.
