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)!

    Could you explain in detail what you mean by "50% of player power" when talking about gear's influence on player power?

    Here's a caravan related one (if it isn't answered in the stream):
    Will players receive the player and guild name of the caravan owner before choosing to attack or defend, to determine friend from foe?
  • It is still the plan to have Seasons system working in the beginning of A2?

    Is the economic node blind-bid election process a gold sink, or does the gold go into the node treasury?
    The best part about mmos is the friends you make along the way.
  • DrunkninjaDrunkninja Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Can you give us an updated example of a Guild Skill that will help combat Mega Guilds?
  • ErahhErahh Member
    Will we be getting name reservation access with Alpha 2? If so how will it work?
  • How will the game handle multiple people trying to send caravans from the same place at the same time?
  • Are tattoos purely a cosmetic reward from in-game achievements/character creation, or do they have associated player power as well? (Ex. - tattoo from fishing achievement gives fishing power)
    Can you give any examples?
  • A class-skills question:

    If we explore Bard as our secondary class and change it later, can we please retain the ability to play the musical instruments we learned as a Bard?

    It feels like this would really incentivize players to poke at the class, as well being an extra little something special that our characters can do, to show off to other players.

    New Player Experience: Is there a plan to have a tutorial or quest detailing corruption, the flagging system, etc. as players enter Verra?
  • New players who can't interact and engage with core systems to accomplish simple tasks while learning the game can easily become frustrated and quit.

    What steps will you take (if any) to ensure that the caravan system does not hurt new player retention by making it virtually impossible to transport goods when targeted by higher level more "powerful" PVP players?

    When is Steven going to join us on The Ashen Forge again?

    Will there be archetype abilities that require a specific weapon type to be equipped?
    Eg. fighter "Double Slash" requires dual wield to cast.
  • How will you ensure that the node system has sufficient building upgrade distribution to service the number of professions without creating an overdependency on personal caravans or limiting profession progression?
  • What systems will be there in place to combat the concept ZERG groups of smashing though content?
  • 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?
  • Steven always talks about the good experiences he's had with past guilds in MMO’s, are there any memorable bad experiences that shaped your design for ashes of creation?
  • What will the artistic influence be for the Tulnar (architecture)?
  • Will the school of magic, transformation, be dependent on what class/classes are chosen - or does it affect your class depending on what kind of transformation is chosen?

    What is the design goal for 1vX PvP scenarios. If a skilled solo player has good gear and a few level advantage how many players with average gear should the solo player expect to be able to beat if they get ganked?
  • RoubiRoubi Member
    Can we get any clarification on how much are augments gonna affect our gameplay?
  • Outside the 5 metropolis networks there will be 20 nodes.
    Will these nodes be able to survive and reach level 5 or will these be constantly destroyed by the powerful metro nations?
  • AzheraeAzherae Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    Can the special items that are only available for the highest ranking members of a religion, then be traded or sold to other players?
    Sorry, my native language is Erlang.
  • To what degree will secondary archetype affect shaping of your class? Will every class have its own visual identity? Will you be able to recognize someone's class miles away if you catch them fighting or by buffs they are using?
  • How will mount progression work?
  • Will there be any weapons that heal or buff allies rather than deal damage?
  • How do you expect to handle many people at once in certain zones? e.g. World of Warcraft uses layering, which seems to be against the spirit of what Ashes is trying to achieve.
  • will the best stat gear in game come from open world content? Or will players need to farm dungeons and arenas?
