  • How close are we to being able to play with the Character Creator?

    Will there be gear score or some metric to qualitatively quantitatively measure overall item/player power? (Please say no.)
  • ZahieZahie Member
    Will all classes handle the same type of weapon in the same way? For example, would a bard use a hammer in the same way as a tank would or would a tank use a knife in the same way as an assasin would?
  • NagoNago Member
    Would a guild composed solely of summoners be viable in PVE ?
  • With mount skins being available to buy, would that not negatively affect Animal Husbandry, considering one of the main draws to the profession is the ability to create unique looking mounts?
  • Are there going to be 8 different types of tanks, corresponding to the 8 secondary classes?
  • kannakanna Member
    General Inquiry- how many characters can I create on one account? I want to have a character for each and every class and subclass which makes it 64 characters.
  • GaullGaull Member
    When a player approaches a player caravan will they be given the character and/or guild name of the caravan owner before deciding whether to attack or defend?
  • The name chosen for the archetype "Tank" is debated. For some people, including myself, the term "Tank" lacks fantasy and is even ridiculous.

    Have you thought of reconsidering the vocabulary used to designate this archetype in order to make it more appropriate and integrated into the history of AOC?
  • Will there be a character name generator to match race and culture and story line? Games without a name generator end up with names like: "Number2 Pencil" or "Four Que" or "dk38UgWcj".

    Could the Tank archetype be renamed as Guardian and the double Guardian be called Bulwark?

    Guardian makes more sense, in a lore sense, since the other role types are named differently from their role.

    *Bulwark is a suggestion by Atakgonist from Discord.
  • In terms of the artisan classes, will one player be able to utilize all three to see a resource to its completion (i.e. gather the resources for a potion, process those via alchemy, and utilize the created potion to enchant gear)? I know that the wiki mentions that you'll only be able to master one of the three classes, so I wasn't certain how this works.
  • Will we start the game from Sanctus?
  • AkaimeAkaime Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    What other classes are ready to showcase?

    Greetings everyone - thank you so much again for sharing your questions with us, and for tuning in for today's livestream! In case you didn't hear us cover your question on the stream, it may be because we've shared an answer previously - check out more on that below!

    @TheWolfofGar (question), @WellwornTraveler (question), @Botagar (question), @Arenir (question), @Nuub (question 1, 2), @LastCrystal (question), @Sherkus (question 1, 2), @ForlornFjord (question 1, 2), @WHIT3ROS3 (question), @Steak777 (question) - Please only post one question next time as requested, and 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!

    @Lithion (question), @Sometimessmiles (question) - Please stay tuned for more information regarding cosmetics as we progress further in development!

    @Vyril (question) - This will depend entirely on the dungeon!

    @-T0Mb- (question) - Currently, the plan so for any class to have the possibility of dual wielding, thought it might not always be the most effective choice. You can hear Steven discuss this more here!

    @Hutchy1989 (question) - When a player dies they disintegrate into ash. The ashes contain any items lost by the player due to applicable death penalties.

    @Acij (question) - Currently, the plan is for Up to eight players of the same primary archetype can band together to create monumental effects during a siege. However, Summoners can collaborate to summon larger summons, such as Golems. You can read more about Siege Summons here, on the wiki!

    @Ozijak (question) - If eight Tank archetypes each use one of their summon wall abilities it might construct a larger wall that can divide two raids in a moment; and would require damage and block skills and abilities for a momentary lapse of battle between those two raids. You can read more about this here, on the wiki!

    @Neurath (question), @Hoozierpopz (question) - Please stay tuned for more information regarding character creation as we progress further in development! <3

    @Balmora (question) - There is a feature called Bulletin Boards which, among a variety of uses, will allow for players to find others for dungeons! You can learn more about them here, on the wiki!

    @Strevi (question) - Currently, the plan is that corrupted players can be attacked regardless of other affiliations. This is something that will be tested during Alpha-2 :) You can read more about this system here, on the wiki!

    @Azalamir (question) - Please stay tuned for more information regarding weapon and casting animations as we progress further in development!

    @Jazerious (question) - We should have news to share regarding this very soon! ^_^

    @Hazerduhs (question) - Please stay tuned for more information regarding freeholds as we progress further in development! ^_^

    @Castai (question) - Mariner classes (also referred to as boatsmanship classes, boatsman skills, or seamanship) contain different skill trees arranged in a similar manner to Artisan classes.

    @Nago (question) - I imagine that a guild of any single archetype will experience shortcomings in some areas of content! :)

    @Aniion (question) - The animal husbandry system has much to offer outside! This system will be used to create the perfect animal for the perfect situation! Creating cool and unique looks for each mount through the system is just one aspect :)

    @Krazee12 (question) - Yes! They will be called Argent, Guardian, Keeper, Knight, Nightshield, Paladin, Spellshield, and Warden. You can read more about this and all other information that has been said on the game here, on the wiki!

    @kanna (question) - There will be a comfortable amount of character slots per account. You can read more about that here, on the wiki!

    @Gaull (question) - There may be UI elements that indicate important information upon approaching a caravan

    @ThatOtherGuy (question) - There will be limitations on what players can do when creating a character name. We'd love to be able to provide players assistance when creating their character names!

    I'm afraid this answer does not address my original question. I am specifically asking about "naval PvP progression". Analogous to bandit and defender progression in caravan PvP on land, will there be some specific PvP progressions for attacking and defending other players on the open seas? Or, I guess in other words: Do mariner classes measure naval PvP progression in a unique way?
