    We have been told that there will be seamless transitions from area to area. How does Ashes plan to deal with an event perhaps organized on social media of "Rush Node 51 at a specific date and time!" and a majority of a specific server try to put thousands of people in a node and the problems that would create?

    Will the sandal be in the August 20th test instance, if so, will it be in the same location as it was in the previous tests?

    I beg thee Sandal Lord to share his wisdom upon me, for I am the leader of the Sandal Crusade. We must find it.

    Will there be action camera like in ESO? I personally prefer to move sideways by moving my mouse and interacting with NPCs\mobs etc by turning towards them. As a follow up question; will I be able to use the action camera even if most of my chosen abilities are tab? Thanks in advance.

    How important to the endgame will PvE raids be?
  • Regarding cosmetics in the MMO, will we have a wardrobe system similar to Guild Wars 2 where we can freely apply equipment skins our account has unlocked? Or will they be one-time use (or be similarly limited)?
  • Will we experience different tidal patterns in the ocean? High tide, low tide, slack tide, falling, rising? Will there be moon cycles that effect these tides? If yes then will the tides cause certain area to only be available during certain time and restrict access. Will tides effect fishing?

    any news on the other classes?

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

    Will the world map be global? Meaning if I walk west will I eventually get back to where I was? Or will there be invisible walls or unscaleable mountains at the edges of the map?

    Hello, and thanks for your amazing work!

    You mentioned long ago that there would be "truly" unique weapons and gear, in a sense that the player that found it first will be the only one to get it. Do you have a plan in mind to avoid a few select people hoarding these unique items? Or will the player that got the weapon first have its ownership until he decides to sell or give it away?

    The hybrid combat described sounds something like ESO so I was wondering which game would you say combat will feel most similar to?
  • Other than taxes, will the only way nodes get resources from players be by their own prerogative? Or will there be something else that forces that? People, by nature, are hoarders, so I can't see a willingness to give up hard-earned resources for a tiny bar to advance another fraction.

    Will we be able to place Mayor Campaign banners on our Caravans, thank you.

    Will dynamic destruction also affect ships or is it limited to stuctures?

    Will there be a sneak mechanic usable for all classes or will stealth be limited to rogues? If it will be limited to just rogues, how will non rogues (not just rangers) counter it?

    I am aware of the rogue's stealth ability countered by ranger's utility. I am asking if any other class will have a different mechanic (not ability) to hide and how other classes can counter. Like in ESO, nightblades get the ability dark cloak that is an instant hide while being seen. This is countered by certain abilities and DoT effects. Everyone has a sneak mechanic utilized by breaking line of sight and crouching for a short time; this is maintained by moving slow, by not getting hit by AoE, and by keeping a certain minimum distance.

    Since we have the Tulnar race, will there be large areas, nodes, dungeons or fortresses found underground (similar to the Underdark in D&D)? If there is, will we be be able to see underground cavern routes reaching to other nearby nodes or the possible chance to create them?

  • If the combat system is really Gucci, and the game gets really popular, will it turn into an eSport?
  • mcstackersonmcstackerson Member, Phoenix Initiative, Royalty, Alpha One
    What are the different mount types and what are there use cases?
  • CambiguousCambiguous Member, Leader of Men, Alpha One
    Will secondary classes immediately give you access to all augments for skills, or will there be a form of progression necessary for each Primary/Secondary class combination?
    Someone you otter know.
  • You said that the highest skilled players in each artisan class wont be masters of all.
    my question: Will there be decision to be made in the way as an artisan? Decision that funnel me into plated armor crafting instead of leather armor crafting or even into a specific material that i mastered in use.

    How deep is this specialization? will it be exclusive to "armor smithing" or exclusive to "plated armor smithing" or even exclusive to "steel plated armor smithing"?

    Keep up the good work! sorry no native englando

EU lul

    Are you planning on having a game related app for phone or/and tablet?
  • Krim LKrim L Member, Phoenix Initiative, Royalty
    Is there still a chance we will get some form of the character creator during Apocalypse? Or will we need to wait for Alpha 1?

    I've been told about the marriage system and me and my wife are excited. But with most games marriage is nothing special and just gives you a title. Will there be actual special things that a married couple can do? Like perhaps live in the same house and co-own said house?

    When is the earliest kickstarter backers will be able to play the MMO?
  • CaelronCaelron Member, Braver of Worlds, Alpha One
    Will there be a typed-chat system in APOC this time? The voice-over IP seemed to work great, but lots of people just never responded, or even knew about it.

    Also - Is it possible to have an "exploration mode" during APOC testing? (Or maybe just an un-timed version?)
    Basically just a version where we can log in and admire the terrain and its beauty and facets without worrying about the corruption wall killing us.

    What will the talent trees look like? For example will they be similar to Vanilla WOW, Current WOW, POE style or something entirely different?

    Will there be giant serpents to go with the monolithic beasts?

    Modern MMOs have lost the sense of mystery with everything being known and discovered on PTRs before new patches and data mining being a huge way for websites like MMO champion to make money via ad revenue... can you talk in depth about how you will bring back that sense of mystery and wonder in Ashes with future updates and prevent people data mining upcoming content?

    Will there be a PTR or Test Server post launch for upcoming content? if so how do you stop players from feeling like they've already "experienced all the new stuff" during testing before content is fully released.
