Glorious Ashes Community!

Our next live stream will be Thursday, October 31 at 11AM PDT for a special spooky Halloween edition! (Click here to convert this to your local time.)

As we've been doing for our past several streams, we'd love to gather some questions from everyone to answer live! Please submit your question in the thread below, and we'll do our best to get to as many of them as we can on our live stream next Thursday (please keep in mind that with our special Halloween stream, we may not have time to get to them all!). In order to accommodate questions from more members of our community, please only post ONE question below, and the more direct/succinct the better. Submissions end Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at 11AM PDT so we can compile your questions before the stream.

We'll see you next Thursday for our development update live stream!

    Blocking is a great mechanic to make melee combat more skill based. Are there any plans to make it more responsive in APOC and if so, how would it integrate into the hybrid system in the MMORPG? Thanks in advance :)

    can you tell us about the RPG elements of the player such as being able to choose a birth sign, personalized reputation towards the world races and tribes and npcs, and questline, personal growth in the chosen role and achievements

    playable Undead race when?

    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

    When will you actually show something from the MMO (NOT THE BR) like the world map, boats, etc? I would like to see any progress on the game not only by the things you implement on the BR.

    We've seen the early iterations of the ping system in Apocalypse with the ability to place markers using the middle mouse button. Are there any plans to expand on this system to add additional functionality such as a ping wheel or raid leader pings and more?
  • When will the Archetype and Class names be discussed or reviewed by the Studio? (Alpha 1, Alpha 2, Beta 1, Beta 2) Would it most likely be brought up again in a Developer Discussion? (Hawkeye... :| )

    Will it be possible to stow your weapon ?
    And if so, does that mean you can have a bow and spear on your back at the same time ?
  • HjerimHjerim Member, Leader of Men, Alpha One
    Which camera perspective will we see in Ashes of Creation, the MMO?
    Will it be the traditional directly behind the character or like in apocalypse where we are seeing it third-person over the shoulder or perhaps even first-person?
  • PitsnowPitsnow Member, Leader of Men, Alpha One
    Will there be quests or training to lead players into crafting, trading, ship craft, etc?
  • Disregarding backend issues that still need to be fixed, systems that need to be completed and implemented, and mobs and such that have or haven't been added, to what percentage has the world map of Verra( world map referring to either the alpha one world map and/or the final world map for the complete game) been completed (terrain 0-100%, non player built structures 0-100%, etc.)
  • As a fan of gunpowder weapons, medieval and fantasy engineer class (GW2) - can we expect something similiar to this in the MMO?

    Will a dress appear in game as a dress when placed on the cosmetic paperdoll of a male character?

    i mean we already have the highly controversial potion launcher and crossbow ... and wand
    arent those enough?
    i hope we never get dragged into steam or mechanical eras ... or gunpowder

    It was mentioned before, that you plan to provide API access for game information at...Beta, Release?

    Will it be a REST API covering common public stuff like items, region infromation, auction house, etc. as well as protected to manage character and account settings?

    Further and more detailed information appreciated :)

    not a "race" of "goblins" no but you can probably pull that off with tulnar

    Are we able to upload our screenshots, videos, and pictures from our PC directly into our forums instead using http:// or Image URL?

    when the game has been up enough to have enough dead bodies XD so its a long term thing really

    no you have to upload somewhere else (like all the forums) and link it here
    lots of websites for that
  • Will we be able to control the camera in the MMO to setup screenshots and pictures (a la Assains Creed Origins)?
  • If there are to be legendary weapons and armor, but only so few are able to attain it, how much of the rare equipment that Intrepid makes are we expected to see within a years time of the mmorpg? And will it be continuous adding and taking away of the gear?
  • Will there be a system for switching weapons mid-combat, or will we be locked into one weapon as soon as combat begins?

    If so, will it be similar to the BR with multiple options or similar to Guild War 2 with two weapon sets?

    So far we have seen concept art for mounts and armors in their respective 3D renderizations, however when can we expect to start seeing ship and housing 3D models?
  • Archeage Unchained Had a difficult launch. Not enough servers to handle the player pop, or not stable enough. This caused friends to get into one server while others were stuck in que and kept having their client crash. And then they blocked character creation and we were not able to even play with each other and were required to start over with new characters on another server. This wasted a lot of time and caused much frustration. How is intrepid planning on handling this for the launch of AOC?

    What information are you currently gathering from the APOC Battle Royale mode, and how is this information helping you to develop the MMORPG?

    Will large ships be able to be modded to offer many of the amenities of guild halls, freeholds, and other services, or will they function as purely means of transportation and combat platforms.
