    QUESTION:

    Since some games come out more optimized for Nvidia over AMD (or visa-versa), I'm curious which video card you guys run in your office during development.  :)

    They're using Ryzen 1700X CPU and Nvidia 1080 Ti GPU.


  • Question: "Can we expect to see Tulnar related concept art this year?"

    Current designs aim for 10k

    No gender lock, and no race lock, but there race augmentation might make certain classes a bit more meta. (also no there is no weapon lock you can make your char equip any style of weapon, but again some items will be more meta then others).

    Dragon appearances are based off the region of origin, that applies to castles and nodes.

    Will there be any special events for holidays? If so will you be trying to earn different items/prizes? What other things, if anything, can we look forward to during the holidays? Thanks!

    Q&A 5/3/2017: "But the cash shop will have unique cosmetics...holiday cosmetics. 

    Q&A 5/10/207: "There will be events with seasons in the real world and season in game world"

  • Can you get into a little about the Naval Aspect of the game, are we going to be able to craft our own war ships or transport ships for trade. are you going to be able to customize the ships, i.e what type cannons, sails?

    So today it's time to talk about something considered P2W in many games, that is included in the founder packs: the Headstart
    We already know that during the headstart period nodes will be unable to earn experience from activity in their ZOI. However, what prevents me from earning XP from killing monsters, or gathering resources, and later use those resources for processing, to reach a higher level and be able to progress faster once they are unlocked?
    If nothing of that is available in a relevant manner, then how is the headstart more than 2 days time of traveling to the desired node and character creation?

    The game will have both Head-start and non-Head-start servers.

    We had this long discussion last night regarding raiding system, and taxing. 

    1) Will there be modular raiding system (easy, normal, hard, legendary, ect...) 
    2) Will nodes be able to set a tax system (I.E flat tax vs floating (progressive) tax rate (dependent on players profits/income)).

    Two-Part Question
    1. Besides Fire, Water, Earth Wind, Light and Dark magic ... what other kinds of Magic will we see ?  How versed is Magic & what is your vision on Magic ?
    2. Can Bards cast Hallucinations ? If so, how would that be depicted ?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    In reference to the first this Thread ( below ) ... and the Title (  :)  )
  • At what point during the development of Ashes of Creation will be able to see a full sized Raid or a Metro Siege.

  • How will you balance the threat of super clans taking over servers and dominating in terms of controlling nodes?

    I've seen this take place in other games, but this seems to be the biggest threat to this game's social atmosphere. Cant wait to watch the stream!
