  • Gotta say love the work so far, looking to be a beautiful game. Along with the 2 tier class system any chance of elemental affinities tweaking the class to a suited play style such as druids, shamans, frost mages, unholy warriors etc.. also curious with the PVX construct what measures will there be to prevent high level players resource gating areas from low level players. do you have to engage in open world pvp?

  • A question about the max-size of the Zones of Influence:

    Once a Metropolis's Zone of Influence reaches it's max size and covers 20% of the world's Nodes, are there reasons built into the game-design asides from possession of the Node Relics for the Zones of Influence to fight each other?



  • Will you be able to fill the role of your second archetype. For example will an Apostle or Spellstone be able to tank or will it just be a melee healer/dps? Or can an Acolyte or Paladin fill the healer role?

    Will the music from Bear McCreary for Ashes be available for purchase?

    Even when I am in the boring real world, I want to be surrounded by the ambience of Ashes.

    My understanding is that you're working with the agile methodology. One of the point of this method is to be able to "easily" change what features goes into which release.

    Do you have a plan to move some features out of the initial release to integrate it in later updates ?

    If feels like some features are linked (i.e they have interactions), but not all of them.

    Here are some examples to explain my point:
    • Combat pets
    • Arenas
    • Half of the races
    • Underrealm

    Another related question, what kind of content can we expect in future updates ? It seems unlikely to see new zones since it would probably unbalance the node system

    Node and Castle Sieges are expected to be a major part of end game PvP content in Ashes of Creation. Given this, it is imperative that leaders of both the attacking and defending sides in this content should be able to have a wide range of flexibility when creating and managing their player rosters. What tools do you plan to give leaders in this content to manage who are in these rosters and how these rosters are organized.

  • how soon after alpha 2 would you anticipate beta 1 launch? multiple years or a year?

    The recent update videos about freehold ownership, nodes, and mayoral powers seem like they all tend to benefit large guilds who can consolidate resources to a few individual quickly. Will there be any sort of systems in place to allow smaller guilds to compete on even footing outside of the guild specialization perks already discussed?
  • So since you are having internal PVP tests is there any chance there's any Info on how CC breaks will work in PVP, maybe we will see it in a demonstration on PVP combat soon?

    What kinds of daily resets will exist? Like for boss or resource spawns, or daily objectives. And what time will daily resets occur?

    Has the team considered grapples/guard breaks to go along with the potential Active blocking?

    Beta 1's are usually closed and happen about 1-2 months before launch. Beta 2's usually happen 2 weeks before launch.
    This is a broad generalization but it's how most video game stages seem to function, I don't think this is a question they will answer because it could be descriptive of an approximate launch date. That being said, probably multiple years.

    -Have maybe a bounty board where players can sign up to be a criminal or bounty hunter and then we can go hunt and evade eahother around the world for extra rewards
    -Have open world pvp, risk vs reward, and the ability to play as a pvp criminal or a pvp bounty hunter for world pvp rewards or pvp currency or something.
    -get xx number of player kills or # of bounty kills or evading the bounty etc. I want to do world pvp to progress my pvp build or slowly unlock pvp items, gear, special stuff etc.

    i loved how in archeage there was rotating pvp zones based on activity so it was always fresh hour by hour world pvping and running packs or pirating packs. I quit diablo 4 because there is only 2 small pvp zones that never change. helltides rotates but pvp zones dont. it got boring.

    i loved how warcraft had pve gear and pvp gear. and there were different stats and bonuses for each type that helped for what style you like to play

    i always wished an mmorpg had the ability like you toggle character titles above the head, but toggle how many players you have killed. seeing someone like <Nina> "216" instead of <Nina> "The Alchemist". But it only counts once per unique character you kill. so you cant kill a friend over and over to gain higher number. This way sometimes you come across a player with tons of kills and its like OMG there goes a serial killer villain type be careful around them be on alert, also more satisfying when being a pirate or bounty hunter seeing these stats under the name.

    I really loved the pvp system in archeage and the court/prison system was hilarious 10/10. reporting the blood, leaving a comment, going through the character wrap sheet and seeing all their kills and comments as they argue they are innocent. lmao

    Are there plans for official, game supported Node positions other than Mayor, such as Stablemaster or Procurement Officer?

    In what ways are you making sure that every server exerpience the same main story telling while at the same time every server undergo their own development?
  • Cities in mmorpgs tend to have iconic music to match the aesthetic of the location. How do you expect Ashes and Bear specifically to create music to fit Nodes when they will be changing all the time?

    What equipment slot does a Bard's Instrument take up?
  • Will there be level appropriate content around each node for both low & high level players, or is it likely that a player may need to relocate to another node to get the most efficient gameplay experience with equivalent level mobs & resources?
  • CastaiCastai Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Will players be able to raise flags, banners, and/or bunting on their personal freehold lots and buildings? or is that something limited only to guild halls and ships?

    How grand could in game earned cosmetics get?

    Assuming that there will be items that are incredibly challenging/rare to acquire, will they have an intense impact on your appearance?

    For example: an aura that a player obtained that changes the appearance of the skybox wherever they walk.

  • since taxes are set by the mayor, is there going to be a way to see the tax rates in different towns and cities from the world map? similar to how in new world, when you click on a city, it tells you the tax rates which are set by the ruling company
  • Other MMOs have implemented many different types of repeatable PVE content. Whether its Dailies, World Quests, Corrupted Portals, or other types of events, these are all initially fun the first few times you complete them, but they usually start to feel like a mandatory chore rather than something fun after a few weeks/months. How will AoC try to address this problem?

    Are the hunting certificates price variations going to be significant enough to encourage players to go farm a variety of monsters over farming the same area over and over again because it has better spawns?
