  • Hello Ashes community! Huge artisan fan here. I've been reading forum chats for a few months discussing fun ideas and some concerns for how the artisan trees and levels will be balanced once the game moves out of the initial alpha.

    Is there any new information you can share about the artisan system (new or revised artisan classes, how new/old artisan characters will stay relevant after launch, incentives to not just use an alt, etc.)?

    Thanks!
  • So, are there gonna be cutscenes while questing/following the main storyline? Like in other games where you have a small "film sequence" of your character fighting for example or talking and so on?
    actually I want to play a cleric but I know that I end up playing mage again..

    Can you clarify the lore a little. The charity stream suggests there are three groups of people. The Seven Gods, the Ancients, and the Others. I though the Ancients were the gods.

    The Ancients were the race created by all ten gods of the Pantheon. Three of those gods taught the race about the Essence, and were then banished by the other seven gods. Those three are known as The Others.
  • Is there a nature magic class akin to DnD druid?

    Underwater cities as well. The could be sieged by something similar to depth charges, magical bombs perhaps?
  • Can you please elaborate on the philosophy behind why cosmetic skins and costumes can only be applied to one character at a time? If we are allowed to move them around, then we can theoretically use the same cosmetic on all of our characters with a bit of effort. Enforcing the unequip first rule seems like it's just adding extra friction for the user. Why not allow more than 1 character to have a skin applied at the same time, like in Guild Wars 2 for example, since a player is only using 1 character at a time anyways?
  • Will pure Gatherers have any "safe" option of storing their gathered goods or is there always a danger of losing all your stuff through node sieges, player kills etc.?
  • NixalNixal Member, Braver of Worlds
    Will there be a limit / softcap for stats or could you achieve something like 100% crit rate, 100% spell immunity, etc.?
  • Will every Class have a Manapool or there some classes with different kinds like Rage or Energy pools?
  • As in game economy will play a big role in how the game will go, what will be done to ensure 'fair' trades? in that sentence that people will not tranfer in game cash for real life money, and/ or with the usage of bots (both bots that play the game as well as selling cash bots (like we all know in MMO's)). this could ruin the qoals of being proficient in your artisan skill as well as being major of an economic node.

    Recently I was wrongly banned from World of Warcraft for using third party programs (I was not using any program) and am attempting to get it repealed. What safeguards will you all have in place to decrease the chance of false positives on third party program detection?
  • Could we build a Overlord anime typish setting. Since we have nodes that create civilizations and villages and that manifest themselves in respect to our chosen races. Could we have a faction like sort of thing. For instance, say we have a group of undead races/classes that will hopefully be in the game later on. Is it possible for us to have hostile nodes, like the living or normal races can not venture into the undead nodes that are filled with undead players unless they want to fight hostile enemies npcs and other players alike. It would be fun to play the villain and have a rewarding system unlike the penalties we have now that will most likely kill the game, and it will be even more rewarding to bring said undead or bad players to justice.
  • A back up question will be is it would be kind of cool if you were given options or a RG type of opportunity that was given at random where if you killed enough players your penalty would either be you would become an outlaw with the same penalties minus or in addition to a few other aspects with rewards as well, or you would become an undead ghoulish type of creature. For the undead you would be granted a boon in the night and a nerf in the day, and it would be even more world building and lore filling if we didn't get to choose what undead creatures we would become but the game would at random as if our chances really did hold water.

    Can you tell us more about the ranged weapon slot?
    Can we /hide it like helmets?
    Can we avoid using it as melee characters?
  • Are you ready to share yet whether secondary archetypes will be able to fulfill their role function ?

    ie can X/Cleric heal a group, or X/Tank tank for a group for easy content ?

    Will building skins be customizable, like changing color/material of walls/floors?
    Depends on your exact question. Building can have various skins/cosmetics applied to them. If you are asking if you can modify the skin applied to the building itself (e.g., change colors) then yes if the skin has dye sections. We don't know if all skins have dye sections and how many though.

    For crafting of items we will have control and your standing in various social organizations and level of unlocked crafting benches will determine what option dials are available to you during crafting.

    For dropped items we don't know, but probably it will be random and based on level of mob gear dropped from. It is possible some stats will be thematic (e.g., +fire dmg from fire elemental mobs having higher chance as a stat).

    Invalid questions. 1 Questions ONLY please. These are good, but just pick one. I would stick with the first one.

    Since you plan on increasing the level cap with expansions, can you please go a little bit more into the details of how you plan on keeping previous content from becoming obsolete?.
    They previously discussed how they plan on keeping all content relevant (starter areas and farthest to reach areas) due to the node advancement system and how surrounding nodes influence their neighbors. The same answer would apply here. I would suggest we get to release of the base game first before we worry about impacts of Expansions.

    Can you give us some more details on the intricacies of how Taming works?
    Just for example, Will i as a player lower a mob HP and then throw a special crate at the mob for taming, or will I use a lasso? Perhaps do i need to feed it food?
    Honest answer is "we don't know". From some older videos it seems like you will "attempt to tame" a full HP creature if you have that artisan profession and depending if check is passed you succeed, and if you fail it attacks you; however, that's not "official" anywhere.

    Will culling (the process of not rendering nearby enemies on screen during heavy server load to improve game stability) be utilized and how will you ensure it won't adversely affect large scale pvp?
    (Culling has been mentioned in a previous content creator interview. Just looking for a little more clarification.)
    It will be used and they have hired EVE / Planetside devs to help with this. Testing needs to occur before the tail end of this question can be answered and in a way is the answer.

    In the future, at some point, will the concept of dual wielding 2 handers be a thing?
    Previously they said "maybe" but in reality it won't happen. Stat balance would become out-of-whack if this was enabled as 2H weapons will have larger stats than 1H and if you can dual wield 2H you would get too much stat gain to make 1H an attractive option.

    You said that PvP is more focused on large scale battles and such, but I had a question regarding small groups of, for example, 5 -7 in open-world PvP. Will These small groups be viable against larger groups (Say twice their size or less) in open-world PvP if they're unified and working well together? For example, if I had a group in comms with a leader calling out when to kite, when to drop cooldowns on the other group, etc, to try and kill the opposing group, would it be possible?
    I hear what you are asking but this is not a good question b/c there are too many variables to be able to answer this. Sure.. you could solo kill 100 people if they are all AFK and not paying attention and never fight back (assuming you aren't gaining corruption).

    I suggest your rephrase this as “What power level influence % would you estimate group coordination could provide?”. We know it’s between 40-50% for itemization. This is a similar question although about a more subjective topic.

    Will the game offer players an option to manually flag themselves as combatants should they choose?
    Read https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Player_flagging

    For heals and AOE, Players will be able to opt-in (via a checkbox) to allow their beneficial or non-beneficial AoEs to hit flagged players. If this is checked then AoE heals or damage will affect flagged players. If it is not checked then the AoE will not damage or heal any flagged players, and as such will not cause the caster to be flagged themselves (if they are not already).

    This seems like a request that the above opt-in checkbox be changed to an opt-in drop down that has “always Combatant”, “AOE and Heal triggered Combatabt” or “Direct Attack triggered Combatant” options. I can get behind this.

    Can Castle Siege Declaration Flags be destroyed, to force attackers to respawn farther away?
    The Declaration Flags exist in the Attacking Guild's HQ which spawns on a successful 5-min Siege Scroll cast. It's the HQ that's attacked which houses the declaration flags, not the flags themselves. Successfully sieging the HQ increases the respawn timers of the attackers; it does not make them respawn farther away. Read up here: https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Castle_sieges#Castle_siege_objectives. In "Node Sieges" the Attacking HQ can be destroyed and end the Node Siege early. We do not know if the Guild's HQ in Castle Sieges can be destroyed, I would say yes, but no official quote.

    Will picking a certain race give bonuses to your character? And what type of bonuses? I dont think anybody wants situations where you cannot get into any guild because 50 levels ago when you just started the game you didnt pick the "right" race for your class
    This is your second question. You had Question on Page 1, Question 10. Only one question allowed. The answer is YES but it isn't significant enough to make a "HUGE" difference. If a guild kicks you b/c you haven't 100% min/max'ed then find another guild.

    In regards to Artisan Mastery, Why is my character only allowed to master within one of the parent trees rather than choosing one or two professions to master from different paths? Why is my character able to be a master fisher and master miner, but a master fisher and a master alchemist is not allowed?
    The answer is: because that's what Intrepid decided as part of AoC design. It's the same answer as if you were asking "Q: why is my character allowed to die in this game? A: because that's part of the game design." Steven previously mentioned that they want you to have to make choices; they want you to have to interact with others. They designed the game to encourage this.

    Will trade caravans operate like a escort mission and how long will they take to complete?
    That's up to you. You don't have to escort it if you don't want to. But it can be attacked. You can hire mercenaries or other guilds to escort it for you. How long it will take depends on where it is going and what Caravan Components were used making the Caravan (https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Caravans#Caravan_components).
  • Would you consider a Single Sign-On option? I.E. an option in-game that would allow other players who have you on their Friends list to know that you have logged in - even if you're not on a specfic character?

    Can we get more information on the types of buffs that can be obtained from guilds? For example will there be buffs for specific types of gathering, crafting, weapon types, etc.?
  • Will the SEA servers be removed/not opened if you guys don't get enough players from that region?
  • I know Steven has said there will not be crit or head hit boxes in PVP, and I understand why, but will this exist in PVE? I think it would make playing a hunter or any physical ranged class much more fun if it at least it existed in PVE.
  • Main question:
    When it comes to leveling, you have stated in the past that it will take 45 days to reach cap. You have also stated that "Grinding" repeated content will not be a part of the leveling experience. In this dynamic world are we going to be grinding out our own goals from the wealth of in game activities, or will the game be generating random quests based on node progression?

    A variation of the question would be:
    How many quests would I expect the game to give me per level, and how much experience am I expected to get per level from grinding on my own per level?

    Will there be a begging mechanic for people that want to role-play as a beggar? (imo a fantasy world without beggars is not an immersing one). e.g. people passing by would press the 'interact' key (perhaps E, as shown in the livestream) or just click on the begging person (or the bubble begging icon over his/her head) and would automatically give them 1 silver coin..This might make them less respected among the town but still xd...that kind of thing c:
    You can RP a beggar as much as you want, but even though we don't have an official quote on this, you will not see hotkey-based "beggar" interaction, b/c if they did that, they would also have to do "town crier", "drunk", "fanatic", "whore", "peddler", etc. interactions based on demand. Just RP a beggar and people can Trade with you if they want.. but it will be using the trade interface and not with a specific UI hotkey. NOTE: This is my opinion.

    I was curious how much of the world will be useful to you once you hit max level and gear up. Are resources/enemies from all over gonna be useful or will the scaled up content from nodes be the only effective method of getting meaningful rewards.
    Intrepid previously mentioned that low-level processed goods will be needed for high-level crafting as partial components. Ashes 101 does a decent job explaining this here.

    Much love to the intrepid staff. My question is on Itemization and class synergy. Will there be weapons and gear that will be potentially useful by two different archetypes/classes, such as a magical bow or magical sword, giving players the chance to make unique builds that help blur the lines between roles and different damage outputs.
    They previously gave examples of this with Rogue Archetype and how Daggers could have a chance to cause "bleed" effects and Rogues would have bonus damage for some of their abilities (say "backstab") if the target is bleeding. So yes, there will be weapon/archetype/class synergies.

    Mayor's will be able to incentivize certain existing quests (via gold rewards for completion) and potentially trigger certain quests from a list of pre-populated quests or from building choices they chose to build. They will not be, outside of any RolePlaying they want to engage in, be able to create quests of their own imagination. With respect to events, certain events they can trigger (like Caravans), but it's limited in scope to a pre-populated list.

    Can you place a freehold on the border of a node so that it could potentially be within 2 or more nodes?
    Freeholds can only be placed on freehold plots within a node's ZOI. You don't have complete control of the placement but pick from available placements determined by the game system. The game system ensures that what you are describing cannot happen when you claim a freehold space. See here for more details: https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Freeholds

    Can you lose items like gatherables or other non weapon/armour/tool items (when not corrupted)?
    Do you respawn at the closest spawn point or can you walk to your body like in WoW?

    Extremely excited for the game. Your ideas are amazing and now whats important is the gameplay. If you can make the gameplay, especially the combat, fun and enjoyable while also keeping this player driven world I think it could be one of if not the best mmorpg out there

    On behalf of Holski77:
    It almost seems like a challenge to make lore for a game where all the servers will be so different. WOW definitely got stuck in a bad place where they had to advance the lore every patch. How do you advance the lore across so many servers that are completely different without spoiling the story for players on various servers?
    The lore is the same across all servers. You simply unlock various story arcs of the lore as you progress certain nodes in certain ecosystems (mountains, coast, jungles, etc.) differently across the servers in certain layouts and advancements which in turn opens up new quests/dungeons which when progressed unlock (or unblock) certain segments of the lore. For example: being able to open a gateway to another plane through the Essence might require that a certain top-level dungeon located in a mountain region and bordering a Scientific Metro be completed. When done it unlocks a new Story Arc on that server. On other servers, that same Story Arc is available to be unlocked when the trigger condition is met. This is conjecture on my part but illustrates how the lore could be the same while allowing each server to approach it differently and perhaps unlock different Story Arcs (which could also have rules that if Story Arc "A" is unlocked/unblocked then Story Arc "B" is no longer available on said server).

    When it comes to raid/dungeon difficulty (normal, heroic, etc) does changing the difficulty change the dungeon itself, or does it just increase the difficulty of the dungeon?
    There are several factors that account for difficulty of the dungeon. You don't "select" a difficulty, it dynamically changes for you based on your performance. https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Dungeons#PvE_difficulty
    a) The Main One - "The difficulty of PvE content, such as raids and dungeons will adapt based on the performance of the raid or group against previous bosses in that encounter."
    b) Secondary One - "Variables are manifested based on node progression." Meaning, dungeons can change from session to session based on neighboring node progression changes.

    When a siege is declared on a node, citizen of the defending node are automaticaly placed as defenders, will there be a way to refuse or give our place as a defender for a non citizen or allie to take our place?
    There is no reason to do this. There is no concept of "take our place". Node Sieges do NOT have a participation cap (max size). Castle Sieges are limited to 250 vs 250, but not Node Sieges.

    They CANNOT add a new CLASS. They could add a new ARCHETYPE as classes are a combination of a primary and secondary archetypes. However.... if they did that it would mean adding 17 more classes as we would go form 8x8 = 64 classes to 9x9 = 81 classes. As a result, it's a large undertaking and unlikely.

    Unlikely in my opinion as that would add the need for new cosmetics in much architecture (as remember racial influence affect node architecture styles if that race accounts for the most XP to that node during an advancement). Also, secondly unlikely b/c no Nodes exist in the water (only coastal). So your questions is to create lots of "underwater" architectures cosmetics which could apply to above-water or underground nodes while no actual in-the-water nodes exists.

    Will the summoner have a subclass that can transform into animals (such as a druid)? It would be great if it was an additional ability, like reading ranger tracks.
    https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Classes - the class names are know. The exact details are not and summoners (and bards) will be the last 2 archetypes to be developed. Unlikely the summoner will "transform" at as a "class" ability (maybe a skill ability). We also know that "Summoners will likely not be able to fuse with their summons (eidolons)" which makes me think this is unlikely even more.

    The Ancients are the original creations of the Gods (a single race) that were trained by the 10 gods to eventually have stewardship over all creation. At one point however, 3 of the 10 gods decided to teach too much Essence control to the Ancients thus granting them immortality and border-line similar capabilities to that of the Gods, but not quite equal. This angered the other 7 Gods and created a battle. The Seven eventually won and the 3 gods (called The Others) were banished with The Ancients to the Void. The Seven then tried again to create new beings, but this time rather than just one race they split them into 4. These became the 4 Parent Races of Verra we know today. https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Lore#The_Ancients

    As per my previous answer to your quoted question - no "nodes" exist in the water or underwater. No nodes are planned in the water or underwater. This means no underwater cities to live in. There will be underwater dungeons which might be designed to look like cities though.

    To answer your question, good on your Alternate Characters which are logged out are safe. I understand this is not exactly what you were hoping to hear though, but there is a "safe" option, just not a convenient one. Not sure if goods actively listed on the Auction House are safe or not (people could exploit this by just listing them at very high prices to keep them on AH until they need them if this is allowed).

    Could we build a Overlord anime typish setting. Since we have nodes that create civilizations and villages and that manifest themselves in respect to our chosen races. Could we have a faction like sort of thing. For instance, say we have a group of undead races/classes that will hopefully be in the game later on. Is it possible for us to have hostile nodes, like the living or normal races can not venture into the undead nodes that are filled with undead players unless they want to fight hostile enemies npcs and other players alike. It would be fun to play the villain and have a rewarding system unlike the penalties we have now that will most likely kill the game, and it will be even more rewarding to bring said undead or bad players to justice.
    You are NOT ALLOWED to ask multiple questions (you also have one just below it - Page 4, Question 14). Please delete one.
    To answer this one, the closest you can achieve is to leverage the Node Wars system as a Mayor and declare approaching players as Enemy of the State. Read "Leadership Powers" here: https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Node_wars
    Note - there is no "factions" in AoC.

    Can you tell us more about the ranged weapon slot?
    Can we /hide it like helmets?
    Can we avoid using it as melee characters?
    One question only please.

    What happens when you die?
    Can you lose items like gatherables or other non weapon/armour/tool items (when not corrupted)?
    Do you respawn at the closest spawn point or can you walk to your body like in WoW?
    Also: is there a respawn cooldown?
    Only one question please.
    Please read here: https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Player_death
    It answers most of your questions except if there is a respawn cooldown. From videos where Steven has died though.. repeatedly, we saw a 60 second auto-respawn timer.

    Can we get more info on the possible buffs and effects from tattoos if the idea of having them provide augments is still relevant. https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Tattoos
