  • In a lot of MMO's you have that top guild that dominates everything. When it comes to PvP and PvE (world bosses etc), Is that a possibility in AoC? Locking other's from doing content? And what is your plan on it.
  • PoradaPorada Member
    A question regarding PvP Arena: Have you decided on a specific team size? I think saw 4v4 in the videos. Or will there be several constellations of team size?

    I was 48 years old when I purchased the Braver of Worlds package on Kickstarter. I'm almost in my mid 50's now. I visit the site every 8 or 12 months and this is my yearly visit. Are you concerned that your player base will all be dead long before you actually launch the game? ;)

    Will the location of Divine Gateways and nodes change location on release, or is the map layout we'll see throughout testing going to be the final layout of Verra?

  • Can you please have Steven touch on his plans for the Graphics for Weapon enchantments. One of my favorite features of MMO's that I've played, are the ability to make your weapons Glow, and shine, and drip blood based on what enchantments you have. Too many MMO's drop the ball when it comes to these graphical effects. Thank you so much.
  • ElviorElvior Member
    I really like the UI. The buttons are a comfortable size und the visuals are clean. I hope this trend keeps going.
  • A friend posed this question to me as I was trying to induct another into the Ashes cult and it was a pretty good one. How are you going to make it so that crafters are important or at least viable compared to gatherers and processors in the early game? (for example: an over saturation of iron swords in the market)

    This was actually answered in one of the previous streams. The lower tier items will also be material components for higher tier items. Like to make a high tier sword you'd require a basic iron sword as part of the construction.

    @RE40RGED (question) - Steven and the team can't speak on behalf of other developers. As for us, developing on console and PC is different in many ways. Including market, development and coding. We've chosen PC/Windows but may consider developing for consoles in the future! :)

    @BurningEmbers1 (question) - There are no such plans ;)

    @Vertus (question) - We plan to make adjustments to the weighting on capes and cloth in the future. This is something that is still under development. 😊

    @Logan Snow (question) - Stay tuned for more information on UI, including raid UI, as we progress further in development :)

    @Obamba (question) - We would love to have the character creator in the hands of our players as soon as it is complete and ready :)

    @JayGeL44 (question) - There will be Underrealm nodes, which like any other nodes can change according to play influence :) You can read more about underrealm nodes here, on the wiki!

    @Arthianne (question) - A few of us here at Intrepid played and enjoyed Lost Ark. Personally, I love that Lost Ark has a passionate playerbase and community that love playing the game. That's what I also love about Ashes of Creation and I hope it continues after we've launched the game!

    @RazThemun (question) - Make sure to watch our upcoming development update livestream on Thursday March 31 at 11AM Pacific to find out! You can also watch our previous development update livestreams here, on our YouTube channel!

    @Caez (question) - We will have systems in place for new players to help them understand the game. In fact, we did a Dev Discussion to collect feedback on this topic. If you'd like to read what other players wanted out of a new player experience, you can do so here!

    @Ozijak (question), @Maouii (question) - No immediate update on merch, but I can tell you that the team is hard at work on merch :)

    @Szaas (question), @SpaceWolf (question) - Stay tuned for more information regarding augments as we progress further in development :)

    @Justvine (question) - In the past, Steven mentioned that some seasonal changes will have a direct affect on some artisan classes. Such as farming in winter. Other profressions will have less direct affects from seasonal changes, such as different paths around a nodes ZOI opening up, or water freezing and locking behind it different resources, for example! You can learn more about this here :)

    @Frosty_Thundertrod (question) - There will be many different types of cosmetics and gear appearances in the final game! ^_^

    @Hjalmberi (question) - The game mechanics are designed to prevent this from happening :) For example, players are incentivezed to work with other nodes/players within other regions for resources that limiting themselves to one node would prevent them from otherwise obtaining.

    Hi @insomnia :)

    What I had said to you was, "... If you only posted one question, please make sure to keep it as direct/succinct as possible - that way it's more likely to be picked!"

    Going back and looking at your question, your explanation for the question is a bit lengthy. I wasn't able to effectively break it down for you. For the next Q&A, I'd love to see this wrapped into one or two succinct sentences/one question. Thank you! ^_^

    Ashes of Creation will be a subscription-based model with an in-game, NO P2W cosmetics store :)

  • Are you considering any plans for AoC and the blockchain in any way? Are you open-minded to anything with the blockchain or is it a no-go space?
  • CrimsonScarsCrimsonScars Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Hello, I wanted to know if summoner/ranger will be able to collect rare summons/companions, whether that be in the form of a raid boss like summon or a unique elite animal companion that you would need to tame in the wild.
