Glorious Ashes community - it's time for another Dev Discussion! Dev Discussion topics are kind of like a "reverse Q&A" - rather than you asking us questions about Ashes of Creation, we want to ask YOU what your thoughts are.
Our design team has compiled a list of burning questions we'd love to get your feedback on regarding gameplay, your past MMO experiences, and more. Join in on the Dev Discussion and share what makes gaming special to you!Dev Discussion #22 - Immersion
What were some moments in an MMO that broke your immersion? How much did those moments affect your perception of the game? How important is immersion to you, generally?Keep an eye out for our next Dev Discussion topic regarding housing and decor tools!

Just read a thread where somebody said they don't like it when a raid boss is standing in their lair.... doing nothing. It makes it feel gamey, and I think I have to agree. Idle animations for enemies, at least the important ones, add a lot to immersion.
What if the dragon you and your guildmates are heading to kill isn't just standing there, but instead snoozing away in the warmth of its lair? Or perhaps it knew you guys were coming, so it hides in the shadows of its lair, jumping out and ambushing the players to start the encounter.
The leader of a bandit group and his two henchmen could be sitting around, playing cards and drinking, instead of standing there, swords out waiting to fight.
It's something to consider.
