    Are there plans to incorporate back attacks, side attacks, side strafing increasing evasion, and moving backwards increase block and parry?

    When you are in the open world or in dungeons, will the entire map be visible for you to see, or do you need to uncover it before it is shown?

    Would love to hear more about Sub-classes and how they would be effecting the main abilities Via Augments.

    For Example:
    Will Classes like Fighter/Mage (Spellsword) be able to Augment a Element such as Fire/Ice/Electricity onto their melee attacks?

    And would a class like Rogue/Cleric (Cultist) Would the Augments Amplify the Damage of the class by dealing some sort of Dark damage or would it be more of a Self-sustaining/healing Augments?

    How are custom images in houses going to be moderated? Will it be a matter of you having to submit an image for approval before you can use it, or will you be able to use an image straight away?

    Can we cancel/interrupt skills* in use with crowd control or stuns, or the skill is maintained and the target takes the CC. If canceled, does the cooldown reset or keep going ?

    *both physical skill and mage's spells for exemple...
  • Will crafting only characters be an option or is it necessary to level up through combat?

    Will there be Leaderboards for PvE and PvPand Server Records?

    For example, fastest clear for per Dungeon, highest Damage/healing in a Dungeon/Raid/Castle Siege ect...

    And will there possibly be Leaderboard Rewards on a timely (Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly) basis? For ex. a flying mount for the top 10 PvP Players/PvE Parties until the next ranking time

    Looking at the official world map that has been released, is the geography going to act as a boundary to cause the world to have choke points? For example, will the mountains be non-traversable.

    Will end game dungeon and bosses stay relevant for as long as possible in terms of end game progression like old school runescape or will they basically be forgotten as soon as the next expansion/DLC come out.

    We've seen lots of concept art and modeling for a great number of things, however other than some monthly cosmetics we have not seen much in the sailing department. Is ship modeling in the back burner until the systems are in a good spot or are there some different ship types already concepted and modeled?
  • jointjoint Member, Intrepid Pack
    Will there be special animations for parrying/blocking/evading?
  • BCGBCG Member, Intrepid Pack
    In regards to and account transfers, is there any news on that front?
  • Cosmetic question - will there be lots of diverse hair options in character creation? I just really want my elf to have spiky hair haha

    ((Thanks for all your hard work, Intrepid! <3))

    when placing a freehold within the zoi of a node, will that area of land be flattened, trees removed, stones removed, hills flattened etc. if so, will the land be restored to the default appearance when that node is destroyed by siege?
  • Will there be objects in the world that allow players to experience all three dimensions of Verra rather than just the ground, e.g. plants/mushrooms that make us jump high when stepped on (like Wildstar mushrooms - RIP), some objects that players can climb on like ladders on particular tall 'tree houses', perhaps the use of grapple hooks which were mentioned before to swing from one tree to the other etc.

    We've seen the Tank, Mage, and Cleric. In what order do you think the additional classes will be added?
  • About subscription methods, there are going to be hourly based subscriptions besides the periodic ones?
  • MayhemMayhem Member, Intrepid Pack, Alpha One
    Will the NDA be lifted when Braver of Worlds backers are invited, or will it be up until fall?

    How are custom images in houses going to be moderated? Will it be a matter of you having to submit an image for approval before you can use it, or will you be able to use an image straight away?

    I recall Steven saying that they were leaning toward letting people submit custom images without an approval process (they wouldn't have the manpower to do that anyway), and rely on reports for images that break ToS. The fact that it's a subscription based game with tons of account progress to lose means most people aren't going to risk it just to be edgy.

    Do members of a Guild need to be citizens of the same node in order to benefit from passive skills and augments gained through the Guild Progression system?
  • DerAquiliferDerAquilifer Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Do we get a nice realistic riding Simulation like in Red Dead Redemption for our mounts or a classic MMORPG (WoW/GW2) system like press w and let go when you want to stop immediately?
  • sunfrogsunfrog Member, Founder, Kickstarter
    Which attributes will we be able to put points into?

  • Question referring to all of the cosmetics that we're buying into in the pre-purchase packs. Are they going to look different on each race or are they going to be exactly as pictured? I ask for the Underrealm race that has the option of tails and such. How will that work with the cloak I purchased in the pack?
  • What are your thoughts on using Blockchain to further increase the "uniqness" of each players adventure ?

    Will power levels increase with expansions? Will there continue to be higher levels, and better gear/abilities which are introduced over-time? From the opposite perspective, will old gear become obsolete every expansion?

  • JamationJamation Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Freeholds can't be placed near dungeons or other points of interest, but will this include POI's for the node at higher levels? (Example: Build your freehold in a safe place at node level 3, but at node level 6 there is a dungeon in your backyard)
  • Will the News page start getting used again? The last actual article was March 3rd about the creation of the Scalerunner. Even the Creative Director's Letter was almost 3 months ago.
    The articles from Mar 27, Apr 30, May 29, May 31 all just showed up this week and were just links to videos.
