    With all the advancements in AI is Intrepid planning to incorporate some into any of their gaming systems? Thinking perhaps a town cryer with the happenings of the server who gives witty responses off the cuff which hint to how its done. Many possibilities.

    And F, I just saw the cut off post. Till next month!

    In addition to changing skills with augments when using the secondary archetype, why not add a couple of unique skills for each of the 64 classes so that each feels more unique and complete? For example, for the Bladecaller class, you could add a skill that summons blades flying at the target.

    will RP-racism be allowed? like a dwarf guild that really hates another race

    Racism is allowed, as long as it's towards dwarfs and tulnar.

    I mainly consume small-scale open-world PvP content in MMOs. Although flagging for PvP and running caravans fill this type of content, what if, let’s say, no one’s around me that is PvP flagged or running any caravans? I know everyone will be flagged for PvP in the sea, but will this be the go-to destination for small-scale open-world PvP content? And if so, what are the incentives for players to want to go out into the sea and fight others (high tier loot, exclusive loot, etc.)?

    You can attack anybody wherever you are.
    They have the choice to fight back, or to not fight back.

    If they fight back, they flag purple, and you've got your fight. You won't gain Corruption if you kill them, and you'll get the normal loot.
    If they don't fight back, and you carry on and kill them, you will gain Corruption, and you'll get extra loot.

    You're forgetting Nikuan!

    What will be the stance on add-ons? No doubt AOC's UI will (hopefully) have a good customization, but sometimes things can be missed and ideally a 3rd party add-on can fix that.

    I believe a lot of community members would like to know more information about curly, wavy, and thick hairstyles. So, will Ashes of Creation races/creatures feature hairstyles with short/long curly or wavy hair? Such as hairstyles influenced by Pacific Islanders, African American, Hispanic, or Multi-racial cultures. And, are we able to see some examples?

    PvP & war: will there be consequence from participating in a war against a city? Exampel cant visit that city/auto flaged for pvp in its zone.

    Will others be able to interact with our pets or mounts, or pets and mounts be able to interact with the world in hilarious or silly ways? (That may or may not get us in trouble with locals?) I mean... it does not make much sense for a beast to just sit there while their master is taking FOREVER with sorting their pack... that beastie needs to get into some mischief due to the owner's lack of attention! I mean, what if I want to go pet the cool drake's nose? It should either love the attention or toast my hand a bit, don't you think?

    Greetings everyone - thank you so much again for sharing your questions with us, and for tuning in for today's livestream! In case you didn't hear us cover your question on the stream, it may be because we've shared an answer previously - check out more on that below!

    @PsychedelicPerv (question), @Jambokong (question), @ashone (question), @Gig (question), @OuroborosNZL (question), @Roxi (question 1, 2), @Vavv (question) - Please only post one question next time as requested, and if you only posted one question, please make sure to keep it as direct/concise as possible - that way it's more likely to be picked!

    @xillin (question) - Yes, this is still the case! An example of an augment completely changing an ability, could be a ranged ability becoming a melee one, or vice versa, via an augment. You can hear Steven explain more of that here :)

    @Saiytama (question) - Much of what has been shown on stream is subject to change :) The streams are currently showcasing pre-Alpha 2 gameplay, which is not yet complete :)

    @Dolyem (question) - It's imperative to Steven and the team that decisions mean something and matter. We want the possibility of changing your class to exist, but we don't want this to be something players look to do regularly. We'll share more details regarding specific costs as we progress further in Alpha Two ^_^

    @Liniker (question) - There are currently no plans to offer guild/server name reservations prior to launch at this time. Please stay tuned to our socials in case this changes prior to launch!

    @Frosty_Thundertrod (question) - We love to see feedback on our UI! Be sure to share your feedback regarding UI on the official threads. Here's one, for example!

    @katsuenya (question), @Lithion (question) - Please stay tuned for more information regarding cosmetics as we progress further towards Alpha Two :)

    @Erahh (question) - You can read more regarding name reservation here, on the wiki! You can also stay tuned to our socials for more information in the future regarding name reservations :)

    @Rock3000 (question) - Players will find many important gathering materials all across Verra :)

    @George_Black (question) - It's likely safe to say that most things seen in the pre-alpha 2 showcases are not the final version. Everything shown during the current showcases is subject to change, further iteration, and design :)

    @Hjerim (question) - Those seem like examples of what the event system may be capable of producing ;)

    @Kesthely (question) - There will be leader boards :) You can learn more about that here, on the wiki!

    @DoctorRogue (question) - We're doing our best to look at our goals for Alpha 2, Beta 2, Beta 1 and release. We will start to think about post-release content once we have progressed further in development :)

    @Driften (question) - Our goal is to have all primary archetypes playable in Alpha Two. You can read more about our plans for Alpha Two here, on the wiki!

    @ShadowVen (question), @GrandSerpent (question) - Please stay tuned for more information regarding augments as we progress further in development! :)

    @Solmyr (question) - The UI in Ashes of Creation will be very customizable, allowing players to customize it more to their preferences :)

    @MainQuestt (question) - There are many challenges with making Alpha Two! For a better look at what is going into Alpha Two, check out here, on the wiki!

    @ForlornFjord (question) - The team has done a great job of meeting their milestone goals for 2022!

    @LastCrystal (question) - Currently, there are no plans to have character movement increase on a per-level basis. Some archetypes or classes may acquire abilities that affect movement as they level up, but this wouldn't change the base/constant stat of movement, so to speak.

    @Sweatycup (question) - Ashes of Creation will not feature addons. Instead, we plan on providing a robust UI full of customization options for our players :)

    @Logan Snow (question) - Ashes of Creation will feature a robust UI, with many options and customization capabilities :)

    @OneEyedTiddy (question) - Ashes of Creation may certainly feature easter eggs of varying intrigue and difficult to find :)

    @Hazerduhs (question) - We certainly want freeholds to be acquirable to those who want them :)

    @TyranthraxusEQ (question) - Both the PvE and PvP elements will provide players with challengers during raids ^_^

    @Tyranthraxus (question), @DougBug27 (question) - Bards may be able to play musical instruments, such as flutes and bagpipes. Other archetypes may also be able to play certain musical instruments at some future time. You can read more about this here, on the wiki!

    @KingBeastly (question) - Guild leaders will have a robust set of tools for customizing their guild :) You can read more about guild leadership tools here, on the wiki!

    @Gimlog (question) - We want to spoil as little lore as possible before the release of the beta phases of development ;) Stay tuned for more information as we progress further in development!

    @Leviojima (question) - If you're looking for an Alpha Two date, we don't have one to share at this time. If you're interested in learning more about what the game will feature, or what features will be present in Alpha two, I recommend the wiki, which can be found here!

    @Shiromakoshi (question) - The plan is for weather and seasons to affect many aspects of gameplay, from spell and ability interactions to gatherables and more. The current plan does not account for players needing different gear for different climates, at this time. You can read more about our plans for climate gameplay here, on the wiki!

    @Blizzbub (question) - We know that having an extensive set of tools and information is important to our players. We aim to have the UI clearly and concisely provide important information to players. As we demonstrate more of our UI through development, we encourage players to provide their feedback so we can improve and iterate further where necessary :)

    @Sjeldon (question) - Mana is a universal energy and keeps corresponding stats for mana pool, consumption, and regeneration relevant. All archetypes will use mana, some more intense than others. Even pure melee players will use mana to manipulate The Essence for their extraordinary abilities. You can find a ton of information, including more on mana here, on the wiki!

    @Trenker (question) - There will likely be instructions and tutorials for Ashes of Creation! :)

    @Echuta (question) - Please stay tuned for more detailed information regarding archetypes as we progress further in development! :)

    @SnowFlakeZ (question) - Alpha-2 is known as the persistent alpha. Persistent means that the Alpha-2 servers will be kept up all day and night until launch. There will be downtime for patches. There may still be character and testing wipes. Alpha-2 servers will become the public test servers (PTS) post-launch that are used to test patches and updates. You can read more about this here, on the wiki!

    @lemulet (question) - We'd love to explore more areas of development similar to the stream you're referring to in the future! :)

    @otterlysilly (question) - Players will be given the means to alter many aspects of their characters through the character creator. There will be limits, as to avoid ridiculous or unrealistic proportions, but players may likely except to alter the height and size of their character's bodies. :) You can read more on the character creator here, on the wiki!

    @Saltycarrots (question) - There may be some tensions between some races in the lore, but we will have to wait to find out more. ^_^

    @Sexy_Fufu (question) - Players will be able to customize much of their character through the secondary archetype (class) and augment systems! You can read more about those here and here, on the wiki! :)

    @Roofian (question), @DigitalDayDream (question), @Effluvikoff (question), @Rushzies (question), @HalcyonDays (question), @Armoredcell (question), @Drunkninja (question), @NiKr (question), @ThePepper (question), @Azherae (question) - Congratulations! Your questions were answered by Steven and Margaret on the livestream! Be sure to check out the VoD on YouTube in case you missed it live! :)

    @Sometimessmiles (question), @LueW (question), @Hjerim (question), @Deba (question), @poisonz (question), @RowniSciponi (question), @Ace1234 (question), @liam01 (question), @Freemeta (question), @RazThemun (question), @Korvis (question), @JustVine (question), @SnowElf (question), @Meletrius (question), @RayKing (question), @oneuproad (question) - Your questions were ones we hoped to have gotten to on stream but didn't quite have time. We'd love it if you come by next month for the next development update livestream to ask them again! ^_^
