    Will there be specific stats on gear outside of set bonuses that modify or interact with stamina. Such as increased maximum stamina, stamina regeneration, gain stamina on basic attack hit.

    Hello Steven,
    A few months ago, you mentioned your desire to integrate artificial intelligence into Ashes of Creation, particularly for NPCs, so that their interactions evolve based on players' behavior in the world. I find this idea extremely interesting. Could you tell us more about it and let us know if this project is progressing?
    Thank you very much.

    How difficult do you intend the PvE to be? For example, will everyone be able to complete raids or do you intend players to maximize a classes potential to clear certain bosses?

    Is it very difficult to achieve grandmaster level in crafting? How long does it generally take to go from the lowest to the highest level? For example, if playing 4 hours a day, how long would it take to reach the grandmaster level?

    A quick and direct way to get feedback is via a poll. Can Intrepid implement a platform that testers/community members have the ability to share their thoughts in polls on mechanics, visual effects, etc. similar to what RuneScape does?

    Earlier you said you were designing both solo and group content. Gathering and questing both look to be more successful in groups due to open world PvP. What solo content are you designing that wouldn't be better with a party?

    For secondary archetype progression, will we be able to choose augments from all four schools of augmentation at the same time, or will we be locked into one school?

    Do you have anything in common with Star Citizen? Except Server Meshing? :)

    Will we be seeing utility skills in alpha 2 at some point? And if not will we be seeing them at the launch of the game or has the idea been phased out in favor of something else entirely?

    One of my friends brought up a very good question during our discussion yesterday.
    When it comes to the design of the corruption system for punishing red players, what stops them from having a friend who is not in their guild, alliance, raid or group, who can kill them to remove their corruption and safeguard their stolen loot, effectively circumventing most of the punishment?

    Wouldn't being able to do this to minimize the penalties, be counter productive to the design?

    Are server merges a possibility in AoC? If so, how do you plan to merge two vastly unique instances (node progression, quest/story progression, etc.) to minimize loss of progression?

    Approximately what is the number you think the team can hit for battle sizes (250v250, 500v500) with acceptable performance at the A2 launch? What about player hubs like towns, is there a limit of players in the same location a player can see and interact with?

    You said that the sieges are planned to have 1200 active players. Could you tell me how you are going to realise this? So far, in most MMOs, 200+ players fighting in one location is a huge problem.

    I was wondering if aoc will have some mobs that will deteriorate your gear or will give lasting curses that cant be cleansed. I really hope we will have more unique mobs like the mimic we saw a few livestreams ago and that u guys wont stop there.

    With leveling being designed to be a lengthy process, how will low level players fare when participating in group PVP such as sieges and wars, especially when its possible for kills to count toward the win condition? Or are these events intended to be only for max level players?

    What will happen to the siege attacker side if the owner guild has 250 members and one of the attacker guilds successfully cast the Seal to move ownership of the castle to themselves?
  • Options
    You had mentioned in the past that Player-Held Castles would be attacked monthly.

    Does this mean that if a Castle is not attacked monthly - by players - will the NPC Monsters which originally held the Castle, attempt to retake their Castle from these Players? If so, will this be a Monster Coin event that Players can join to assist the NPC Monsters in reclaiming their Castle? (please do this)

    Thank you!

    Howdy! For the roleplay community, can we look forward to any QOL additions that are catered to them specifically? For example, things like a toggled flag beside your name that denotes you as an RPer, or the ability to have inspect-able character bios.

    just answering this for you, nothing is stopping them from doing that but you get 4x more penalties than a green would, and that goes up im pretty sure with your level of corruption. you then still have to work off that xp debt so it is a case of was it really worth killing that person and getting corruption or did you just waste your time.

    Is constant player jumping considered aesthetically acceptable or should there be some delay between jumps in the form of a sense of weight or stamina consumption?

    Are there systems in place to aid in balancing class abilities and augments such as pick rate or success rate?
