Questing

From Ashes of Creation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Questing in our world combines the best elements of traditional MMO’s as well as the introduction of our unique player driven experiences. Ashes of Creation offers area quests, public quests, and quest chains that change dynamically and in real time based on the player’s experiences and choices.

Players will have the ability to directly alter world events and change the landscape through their actions, as an individual and as a community. Server quests will allow political rivals to compete for the fate of the world.

There are mounts you will be able to unlock via questing aswell.

Questing is planning to be the main way to level.
