    Can we get a more up to date number on the total amount of backers, or more specifically Alpha 2?

    Will death penalties in PvE be normalized between green and purple flagging states to mitigate gimmicks to stay flagged to reduce penalty.
  • In the ranged weapon livestream in 2022, you mentioned the idea of character disguises and how they can change how nameplates function, but that the ideas were not ready to be expanded on then. Do you have new information you can provide about character disguises and how they'll function in Ashes of Creation?

    With the PvP showcase, can we get updated list of weapon types that will be available at the beginning of A2, or is that still not finalised?
  • Do we have a better or more accurate date than a range yet for Alpha 2? Looking forward to finally jumping into this game!!!

    In PvE if the tank has aggroed a few mobs and the mob in target dies. How will the game decide which mob the tank will get into target next (closest mob, mob that deals most dmg aka most dangerous, mob with lowest hp, something else) or does a tank have to actively target the next mob himself?
  • Do we have more specific info on which playable areas will be live at the launch of A2?

    In many games healers are way out of tune, being able to withstand multiple people beating on them and staying alive. Who would you say will be a hard counter to a Cleric in Ashes and will 1 class alone be able to kill him? Also will casters have some form of spell regression when hit?

    In the most recent tank and cleric showcases, there was no mention of many of the abilities we had during A1 for those archetypes. Are they just gone now? Being reworked? Just moved to higher level abilities? If it is the case that they are just gone now, can we get a moment of silence, or maybe a few words from Steven for Castigation, the clear cut best ability in A1?

    Once the initial systems testing for Alpha 2 has been completed, do you plan to change the direction of the development team to move more horizontally in terms of creating and filling new biomes with content based on those proven systems?

    What will see in the way of classes needing/wanting to use multiple weapons? i.e. Ranger melee abilities? Is the plan still for classes to have abilities that REQUIRE different weapon types and auto-swap on ability usage?
  • How many animals will we be able to manage at the same time in Animals husbandry?

    When will we see Character creation????
  • TalentsTalents Member, Intrepid Pack
    As it stands, the same armour set looks different depending on the race it's equipped on. How do you plan to have large varieties of in-game achievable gear for each race if you have to make 9 different looks for a single set?
  • After release, how will you balance the class-kits along the years so that players don't have to drastically change their gameplay?
    In some other MMOs some class-kit rework include a complete change of style (ex: adding cast time to a class that used to be very mobile, reducing range from classes that used to be good at kitting, ect...).
  • What are the current plans and approach to make this summoner archetype different to what we’ve seen in previous MMOs?

    (This hasn’t been discussed much since December 2022 stream)

    What lessons have you learned from other games like BDO that had no fast travel, exp loss on death large Castle sieges result in a rich-get-richer dynamic around extremely large guilds?
  • For dual wielding weapons(axes, swords and rapiers, etc) will there be specific skill tree for them with all new sets of skill. Or will there be only a couple of new additions to it?

    Since we are heading into Alpha 2 and the last known PC Specs are from 2021 (Alpha 1) and the tech has changed, has the minimum required pc build changed as well?

    Would Intrepid ever take actions on a guild as a whole if there was a pervasive amount of rule breakers in it, even if that guild didn't explicitly exist to break the rules.

    How many boats can a player own at one time?
  • G3n_Zer0G3n_Zer0 Member, Braver of Worlds, Kickstarter, Alpha One
    Random Lore/RP Nerd question, for those that passed through the gates from Sanctus to Verra, is it a one way trip? Is there a way to pass word back through the gate to Sanctus for any that may have been left behind?

    Would you consider adding a movement speed debuff for raids of more than 20 people, as part of a set of measures to counter zerging playstyle, and favour smaller groups?
    Large armies move slower, special units are faster kinda thing.
  • What light can you shed on your design philosophy in terms of build diversity and in particular to hybrid playstyles that deal both physical and magic damages? Prime examples being Spellsword, warrior mage or Scion, ranger mage.

    Named pronounced Virtual Dynasty or Dynasty thx!!
  • What races will be available to play at the start of Alpha 2?
  • How do you balance Risk/Reward versus Fear Of Better Option?
    sorry for my bad english, my native langage is french.

    Will classes that have the summoner as the secondary archetype have access to any kind of active summons? Or will summoned creatures be exclusive to the summoner archetype? (e.g. mage/summoner is a warlock- possible summons?)
  • LinikerLiniker Member, Alpha One, Adventurer
    is the intended TTK (time-to-kill) for PvP still planned to be on the longer side, around 30s to 60s as mentioned before?

    This is dual wielding question: When will we see a proper demonstration of dual wielding? I don't mean peasant weapons like daggers or punching weapons, i mean a real Sword or axe in each hand
