Glorious Ashes of Creation Community!

Our next livestream will be Friday, May 27, 2022 at 11AM Pacific! (Click here to convert this to your local time.)

Similar to our past streams, we'd love to gather some questions from you to answer live! Please submit your question for our development team in the thread below, and we'll select 10 of them at random to answer at the end of our livestream. In order to accommodate a variety of questions from our community, please only post ONE question below, and the more direct and succinct the better (think one to two sentences)! Submissions end Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at 11AM Pacific, so we can select your questions before the broadcast.

We'll see you soon for our development update livestream!

👀 Check out our May Development Update to catch up on the latest news!


  • A question about religion:

    Will each Node be limited to only one free temple slot and if so, can the temple be converted to another religion?

  • LithionLithion Member
    Will gear for Artisans be strong enough for a player to defend against an equal level player who is in combat gear?
  • LashingLashing Member
    Will pvp activities with dealth penalties turned off give you any EXP.
  • SomeRandomNameSomeRandomName Member, Braver of Worlds, Kickstarter, Alpha One
    Are any systems completed and ready for A2 that we haven't seen yet?
  • GoalidGoalid Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Many players are worried that without instancing, the majority of the difficulty from open world dungeons will be from having to PvP with other groups. How will raid bosses in Ashes of Creation be difficult in their own right if players have to simultaneously do complex mechanics and PvP?

  • will melee dps be taken into consideration when designing boss fights? most of the time, the aoe's are around the boss etc
  • GruntagGruntag Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Many of us would really like to know which freehold skins can be applied to which types of freehold buildings, or can any of the freehold skins be applied to any freehold building type?

    Per our awesome Ashes of Creation Wiki, we know there are planned several types of freehold buildings:
    Freehold farms
    Guild halls
    Lumber yards

    Thank you

    What changes are you discussing/implementing internally with regards to combat that will make the combat in Alpha 2 different than the combat in Alpha 1?

    Will I be able to apply any cosmetic skin to any ship I want, and if not, how do I know which cosmetics go to which types of ship?
  • NiKrNiKr Member
    What is the link between artisan professions and enchanting gear? We know that this service can be provided at a player stall, but we haven't heard if it's a separate profession or just a way to use rare items by paying money to other players.
  • TheyssTheyss Member, Braver of Worlds, Kickstarter
    Will you have specific servers for Roleplayers aka RP Servers so the Roleplaying community can gather in one or two?
  • SarevokSarevok Member
    Could you please explain in a little more detail how enchanting is going to work?

    This relates to the recent discussion posted on the forums regarding enchanting. The jargon used has some people confused on item decay and what destroyed actually means. The wiki makes it sound like the item is dropped to 0 durability but when a normal player thinks destroyed we think gone.

    Thank you

    For those of us PvE raiders who aren't really into the idea of open world PvEvP raids, will there be instanced raids or mechanics in the open world that lock a boss to 1 group at a time and that will still drop near BiS loot (since BiS is reserved for open world)?
  • DrunkninjaDrunkninja Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    When it comes to your system for Ship Hijacking how can we take control of another players ship and do we get to keep that ship?

    Should we expect Alpha 2 to drop sometime this year or would that be planned for 2023?

  • Question about religion :
    Are you expected to pick a god, and follow a single questline/join an organization tied to it (any impact on religious nodes?)? Or do you intend to have multiple quests/questlines that will each give you opportunities to do tasks for specific gods, sometimes good, sometimes evil, a bit like you do for the daedra princes in elder scrolls games..

    Did the Toren undergo divergent evolution when they split into Aelan and Pyrian, leading to Aelan and Pyrian then experiencing divergent evolution again (in Sanctus??) to resolve to Kaelar, Vaelune, Empyrean, and Py'Rai?
  • How are you going to control an ability, class or any other meta from being absolute "Best In Slot" that makes playing other classes or using other sub-optimal skills considered a meme?

    Example: In WoW Vanilla/Classic, going Retribution Paladin or Feral Druid was considered a meme so everyone laughed at people who went those classes.
  • AdestraAdestra Member, Founder, Kickstarter
    Will the enchanter profession be able to craft socket items for the horizontal progression of enchanting?
  • VlhadusVlhadus Member
    Are you guys almost finished updating the Empyrean Elf models with the new skin textures??
  • I represent a large international Facebook fan group. One of our most common questions from members is: does Intrepid Studios plan or has considered providing localization for Portuguese?
  • SnowElfSnowElf Member
    Can we expect the reveal of more crowd control abilities with the release of Alpha 2?
  • Will there be any races that can have bright colored hair like pink and green?
  • arsnnarsnn Member, Intrepid Pack, Alpha One
    Does intrepid consider a combat spot test before A2?
  • GragisGragis Member
    Will guilds have the ability to make custom ranks? IE; Knight. And then give them special permissions?
  • RyveRyve Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Will there be reduced rewards for Zerging Group PVE content?

  • RialinRialin Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Mount cosmetics -
    If you purchase mounts from the monthly releases before launch, are those independent mounts or only skins for other obtainable mounts. Aka can you use them day 1 or will you need to aquire the base mount first. Also, have you thought about tying numbers to them to show the owners how rare they are since they are limited to the month. For example there is 500 of X mount you own
  • VarcanVarcan Member
    Will there be a similar system to Lineage 2's Olympiad in AoC?
  • ThatGuyPowersThatGuyPowers Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    will certain ships have a customizable area we can fill with furniture like a captains quarters
  • At this point in the game's development, how much of the remaining work is 'innovation,' how much is 'implementation?'
