Glorious Ashes of Creation Community!

Our next Development Update Livestream preview of the Alpha Two Event System with a wave-based combat world event will be Friday, September 29, 2023 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 during the end of our livestream. In order to accommodate a variety of questions from our community, please only post ONE question below - the more direct, and succinct the better (think one to two sentences)! Submissions end Wednesday, September 27, 2023 at 11am Pacific, so we can select your questions before the broadcast.

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

⚔️ #IYCMI, we showed what an Event through the Event System can look like via wave-based combat, made some Alpha Two clarifications, and more!

🙌 Are you excited to see other Events?


  • Games like Destiny have rare equipment (exotics) that offers unique abilities, skills, or effects that change, either somewhat or completely, how a class is played. Will there be equipment, either singular pieces or set gear bonuses, that offers unique abilities that change how a class is played? If so, are there current examples you can give?

    Does experience debt at max level interact with rested experience.

    When can we expect to see the update for Ranger showing the whole kit reveal?
  • When will we be getting a PvP update on any related systems such as arenas, caravans, corruption, bounty hunting, sieges and wars?
  • DrunkninjaDrunkninja Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Can you give us an example of a Guild Skill that will help small guilds compete versus large guilds?
  • What will the artistic influence be for the Tulnar (architecture)?
  • Are there any plans to have a stream discussing your, more detailed, plans for pve? Having an AI dev on would be great.

    For freeholds, will giving permissions to guild members count towards the previously stated 9 person cap associated with families or is it a separate number?
  • Can Fighters specialize with bows (like in Pathfinder) or are they really just the 'melee physical' archetype. Being able to equip a bow isn't the same if your skills don't work with them. Likewise with rangers and two-weapon fighting.

    Will nodes have a way to see who used to be mayor at that node in the past? Would be nice so we know who to blame for building 5 smithies
  • How much do you expect augments to change the way we play our classes? And whats is roughly the % of abilities that will be affected by those changes?
  • Do nodes provide to their citizens some kind of clothes or ornaments (capes, tabards or something else) which can be used by players to represent their nodes or is this clothing thing left to the guilds only?

    What exactly can be purchased from the "node currency" players obtain from gathering resources for buy orders?

    What is the current list of planned weapons?
  • Will repairing an item take it back to full durability, or will it always incur some loss and slowly loose its max amount of durability meaning you'll eventually have to replace the item?
  • When will the "Know your Node" series cover the military and divine node type?
  • Would you consider adding more healing classes, maybe something like a shaman?
  • Who will do the music score for the game?

    What melee weapons would the fighter specialize in?
  • Will we be able to turn off certain particle effects? (For example, blood and gore)
  • This month's Mount skin mentions "Demontide":
    "On the 31st of Oleidus, the traditional Verran holiday known as Demontide"

    Is this just cosmetic-skin flavour text, or a sneaky leak of your Halloween Event?
    This link may help you:
  • What is your design goal with the summoner class? I understand that it won't be available at the launch of Alpha 2; however, how would you like it to function in combat once you work out the programming? I played a summoner in Everquest and enjoyed it? What percentage of the damage will come from the summoner and what percentage from the pet? Will we summon the summoned creature and then it will smart attack what we are attacking or will we manually control the summoned creature?

    Since tulnar returning to verra are considered indifferent amongst themselves towards this decision how might this affect gameplay? Will the surface folk of verra share indifferences as well towards this re-emerging?

    Play ranger. Why waste fighter skills?

    Will there be a system in place where a player who wants to hire other players to escort their caravan would be able to ask players or guilds who will guard the caravan for collateral which will be repaid upon completion of the escort in addition to payment for the escort service?

    Do multiple Nodes have to trigger an event or can a single node's level and player activity trigger these major events?
  • Will progression in Social Organizations be permanent, or need to be maintained like PVP?
  • Will players be able to view their server's current vassal networks on a world map filter or perhaps they need to go to an Academy for that information?
