Verra is a world with rich and diverse cultures. Much of its important history has been dominated by the major races. Humans of the coast and plains, Orcs within the hills and the marshes, Elves in the forest and the riverlands, and the esteemed Dwarves of the mountains. The major races have held dominance through countless wars and skirmishes between the lesser races of Verra. Decades may pass between these flareups of violence. There are many minor races on Verra. Some of the minor races exist in makeshift villages or tribes if you will. Some of the major villages among the minor races are comprised primarily of the Giants, less reputable sects of Human, Gnomes, and Halflings. The Halflings are not Halflings in a traditional sense but actually half-bloods of different races.[16]Steven Sharif

Wandering the darker places in the world lie truly sinister abominations of creation. The great churches of civilization often dispatch heroes of the state to eliminate these threats to mortals. There currently exist four great nations on Verra. This is 25 years roughly before the fall: The Aelan Empire, Pyrian Kingdom, the Kaivek Protectorate, and the nation of the Dünzenkell. There was not always only four great nations. Long ago the races were more divided into many nations and city states.[17]Steven Sharif

In the 7,000 years of recorded history, wars upon wars were fought. Some for land, others for resources, many for beliefs. Royal houses stood and fell over the years. Some now long bereft of lordship. Many city states exist in Verra. Some self-governed bastions of democracy and republics alike. Others are vassal states at the behest of their benefactors.[18]Steven Sharif

Character/Racial benefits

Character benefits in Ashes of Creation are tied to that character's background rather than their race.[19][20]

We want players to have the freedom to choose the race they want to play because they're excited about it, and avoid situations where players feel forced to play a specific race because of gameplay benefits.[21]
info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.

Character backgrounds

Backgrounds in Ashes of Creation house character benefits that are traditionally tied to race in other games.[19][20]

Backgrounds are similar to "racials" in other games. Instead of the race you choose giving certain benefits, players will select a "background." We want players to have the freedom to choose the race they want to play because they're excited about it, and avoid situations where players feel forced to play a specific race because of gameplay benefits.[21]
One thing we've talked about in the past is replacing the racial abilities with more of a background style, where you get to select your background regardless of race; and so those two aren't tied intrinsically.[20]Steven Sharif

Stats in Ashes of Creation are derived from primary attributes (Constitution, Dexterity, Intelligence, Mentality, Strength, and Wisdom) via a waterfall system.[26][27]

A waterfall stat is a derivative of an attribute. So, if dexterity is your attribute stat and a waterfall from dexterity is critical rate, that would be considered a waterfall stat: the critical rate.[27]Steven Sharif
  • There will be diminishing returns on certain stats, but there won't be hard caps.[42]
info-orange.pngThis section contains potentially outdated information from Alpha-1 testing.

Primary attributes in Alpha-1:

Stat adjustment (via the Tattoo system)

Tattoos in the Alpha-2 character creator (first pass).[43]

As of right now definitively there is going to be a tattooed system which will allow certain slots for you to apply stat migration, but it's a give-and-take relationship. There will be higher quality magical tattoos that can be applied to the character in order to adjust stats.[44]Steven Sharif

Tattoos in Ashes of Creation refers to.

  • Cosmetic items that allow players to customize their character in-game.[47]
    • These might be "sleeves" applied to different parts of the body.[48]
    • It may also be possible to create whole body sleeves.[48]
  • Tattoos that can be applied to a character to adjust their stats.[44][49]
    • These will have slots to allow stats to be migrated with a give-and-take relationship.[44]
    • Higher quality magical tattoos can be applied to adjust stats.[44]
      • They may also provide stat augments or other boosts.[49]

Tattoos can be removed.[49]


Nameplate in the Alpha-2 party UI.[50]

The icon in the corner next to Steven's nameplate: that little icon is actually his secondary archetype that he hasn't unlocked.[51]Margaret Krohn

Alpha-2 nameplates, targeting plates, and raid frame UI.[52]

There have been some updates to a little bit of the nameplates that Colby and the UI team have implemented, as well as some of the targeting plates as well.[52]Steven Sharif

Nameplates are displayed above the head.[53]

You can set nameplates to always appear. You can set it to only appear on targets. You can set it to only appear on targets that have taken damage. You can set it to only appear on targets that are aggroing you or your party members. You can set it for your allies, for yourself, for whatever: There's a lot of highly customizable options that are currently in the game.[68]Steven Sharif

Nameplates in the party UI indicate the player's choice of secondary archetype.[51]

  • A padlock icon indicates that the secondary archetype is not yet unlocked.[51]

Threat assessment

You decide to gank the player, but find out that you have been ambushed![72]

Players will have a buff on their nameplate that indicates the gear set they are wearing. Other players will be able to see this buff by targeting that player at a distance.[58][59][60]

You can target a player. You're going to see what type of armor they have based on a buff they have available to them because obviously cosmetics can change appearance. You might have different silhouettes as a result of that.[73]Steven Sharif
  • The border will indicate the level and quality of the tier set.[58][59][74]
  • The developers believe that inspecting gear to obtain an exact equipment list or gear score may lead to "unwelcome behavior".[76]
When you see a player approaching you and they're wearing a transmog you don't know if that person is a high damage mitigation against physical damage or against magical damage and essentially the way we overcome that is through you being able to target a player at a distance and they will have a buff that's present on them that you will see, which indicates that essentially the piece set that they are wearing. It is important for players to be able to ascertain from a threat assessment standpoint what they're going up against if they're actively checking that, and that will be available.[60]Steven Sharif


During PvP, detailed information about your opponent's HP is obscured. This means you will not know the exact HP percentage an opponent has.[63]

Players that are not in the same party, raid, alliance, or guild will not be able to see other player's exact health bar values or percentages.[61][62][63][64][55][56] This information will instead be displayed in quarters. A player may be able to progress to see sixths or eighths.[62]

  • NPCs will always show exact health values.[61]
  • Previously it was stated that a player's name plate would deteriorate to give an indication of how much damage they have taken.[55][56][57]
If you are targeting another player specifically, another player not an NPC. If you're targeting another player and that player is not a member of your guild, alliance, raid, or party- those are the four affiliation factors. If they're not a part of those four groups you will not have specific information of their HP level. You will have quarters of information to their [HP] level and you may progress to get that a bit more granular, perhaps to sixths or eighths. You're not going to have exact information about what amount of hit points they have available to them. That level of obfuscation protects a bit of that engagement, that TTK interaction. So you might overshoot a target if you don't know exactly if they're down to their last 20% or 25%. That I think is a very healthy thing to have in PvP, but it is not a normal game design mechanic.[62]Steven Sharif


Character slots

There will be character limits during the Alpha and Beta testing phases. These are probably going to be more relaxed than for live launch.[87]

  • Allow testing of different builds as needed.[87]
  • Provide equipment needed to test various scenarios.[87]

There will be a "comfortable" number of character slots on launch.[78]


Nodes advance to the first stage quickly. This enables NPC services such as vending or banking items.[88]

Character creator

Scars in the Alpha-2 character creator (first pass).[91]

The cool thing about this character creator is that it's not just intended for your character. It has application with NPCs that you might hire.[92]Steven Sharif

We're gonna use similar tech for implementing things like Animal husbandry.[93]Zachary Mallet

Kaelar Alpha-2 character creation (first pass).[94]

This tech is 100% created in-house at Intrepid and is not metahuman.[95]Steven Sharif

We'll be adding many, many more customization options to the character creator.[96]Cody Peterson

The character creator (or character customization system) allows players to define the look of their in-game characters, hired NPCs; and potentially creatures raised by the animal husbandry profession.[92][97]

The Ashes of Creation character creator is 100% developed in-house by Intrepid Studios and is not MetaHuman.[95]

Additional character creator features include.

  • There will be unlockable features for character customization.[101]
You have that scar because you participated in this siege, or these many sieges; or you have this tattoo because of your of a cultural background, or because of a quest that was accomplished where you're able to get that.[101]Steven Sharif
  • The ability to save and potentially to share characters with other players.[91][102]
The beauty of it is that you can save your character- and we already have some of those features available- and load them; and in the future we want people to be able to share those characters amongst each other.[91]Margaret Krohn
  • The ability to undo changes (Ctrl + Z) will be supported, including undoing changes that were made several edits earlier.[103][104]
  • Choosing base idle animations of characters will be possible in future.[105]
    • Certain animations, such as blinking, will be present when they don't interfere with the customization process.[106]
  • Certain ability sound effects will adhere to character customization selections, such as race.[107]
  • Adjusting the background scene and lighting is a planned feature.[106]
There's going to be a lot of environmental controls that are offered to the character creator so that people can set it up their scene the way they want to grab screenshots or to grab recordings or whatever they want to do.[108]Steven Sharif
  • Asymmetry in terms of manipulating different components of the body or different body features such as hair, beard, and eyes.[109]
Asymmetry is going to be functionality that's possible in manipulating either different components of the body or different features like hair. The beard we saw a little bit of that blending with highlights that you can do. Margaret talked a little bit about the eye asymmetry that you can include. Obviously those are going to exist within certain parameters that we want to define on a per-race basis, but it is something that we think is cool.[109]Steven Sharif
  • Body adornments, such as piercings will be possible within cultural limits.[110]
  • The developers are considering whether to allow custom tattoos to be uploaded by users.[46]

The aim is for the character creator to be on par if not much better than that of BDO.[111][112]

Character appearance customization

Facial adjustments in the Alpha-2 character creator (first pass).[113]

There is a great variation that's going to be available from a character standpoint when creating your character, especially around the face. Whether it be the shape of the jawline, the cheeks, the ears, the nose, the lips. You know we want to provide a lot of options and an agency to the player to customize their character appearance.[114]Steven Sharif

Character appearance can be customized in the character creator (CC)[116] and via in-game salons/barbershops.[101][117]

We want there to be a lot of room for people to manifest their own identity, to role play how they want to from an appearance standpoint. There's going to be parameters within which you will be able to customize a character. We want the culture and the identity of the races to exist in a range that makes them easily identifiable from other players and other cultures. So, because of that, we have to have a spectrum you can exist on. There will be a lot of hair variants you can do, body art tattoos that you can apply. You'll be able to play with the scales of the facial structure, the bones, the height, width, the body fat percentage. You'll be able to add body hair on different parts of the body. If you want to have hair on your feet, you can dial that up.[118]Steven Sharif
  • Character models are focused on realism.[119]
  • A player will see a generic character before customization.[120]
  • Character designs will have influences from a wide range of cultures, such as European, African and Asian.[121]
  • Lolis will not be in the game.[122][123]
  • Sliders and other controls, such as color palettes, will offer flexibility in customization but there will be limits based on race, gender, and the artistic style guidelines that the developers are adhering to.[124][125][122][126][127]
There's going to be constraints to the sliders, so that was one of those big questions as work began on the character creator: How much agency do you want to allow pulling like the lower lip all the way down in this weird deformed look, or having like [an] offset cheek that's just asymmetrical to the side of the face. There's not going to be the ability or agency to create those types of weird character things. However you will have the ability to move, slide, change, grow, decrease all those components, but they'll be kept in a more reasonable and presented way in the same sense you won't be able to change the appearance of the dwarven, nor the Dünir or the Niküan races to, in my opinion, create what would be traditionally considered a Loli character.[122]Steven Sharif

Body appearance

Vaelune, Dünir and Empyrean Alpha-1 early character model 3D renders.[128]

So many options coming down the road. Our character team continues to refine our customization options![129]Steven Sharif

Head appearance

Alpha-2 character creator hair and beard customization (first pass).[139]

Every hair color uses the accent and the fill differently, but usually the fill is the root color and the accent is the tip color.[139]Zachary Mallet

Face appearance

Vek presets in the Alpha-2 character creator (first pass).[146]

Heads will be relatively proportional to the body size, with some limited variability.[147]

Appearance details

A "default player appearance" may be automatically applied during sieges or other large scale battles to improve client-side performance.[152][153][154]

Character sculpting

Sculpting in the Alpha-2 character creator (first pass).[155]

Clayton and I tag-teamed on this one. We really wanted to give players that feeling that they were grabbing and pulling and sculpting their own character; especially with more minute details. I mean, it would have been easy to give character- players 100 sliders, but it feels better to have a much more tactile response, like clicking and dragging and pulling all these points around.[156]Zachary Mallet

Sculpting micro adjustments with the Alpha-2 character creator (first pass).[100]

Zach mentioned how much variation we achieve through the customization features. A lot of that is achieved through what Steven is playing with right now: with these dots that are appearing; and the reason why those are dots instead of the little plates that you see highlighted on the character is because these are actually changing the shape of the character's features altogether. Plates are used for moving things around and it sort of maps exactly to your input; and that's why that pick map or the plates feel so nice. Then you can click on those dots and drag those around and actually change the shape of a feature altogether.[100]Clayton Stamper

Sculpting provides the ability to customize different segments of any part of the body in the character creator.[155]

  • Plates are used for moving features around.[100]
  • Dots are use to change the shape of the character's features altogether.[100]


  • Adjusting the length and proportions of limbs.[155][131]
  • Sizes of calves and thighs.[155][131]
  • Adjustments will allow a character to appear more feminine or masculine.[134]

Character blending

Blending in the Alpha-2 character creator (first pass).[99]

This is more of a large scale macro tool that you can select a couple of presets and then you can get certain features from one preset or different features from a another preset. So you place down your presets and then you can click and drag and morph between those different presets.[99]Zachary Mallet

Character blending allows the combination of two or more presets from the character creator. It allows users to click and drag to morph between the different presets to create customized characters without spending time adjusting each angle of every body part.[99]


There are female and male genders in Ashes of Creation.[158][159]


Alpha-2 work-in-progress combat animations and decals.[164]

The intensity of those weapon trailings; how they scale based on the type of weapon, the level of weapon, that you have; but not just the trailing on the weapon per-se but also the ground decals. Like for this heavy weapon, that first strike you see that decal in the ground is- I love that look- and even on the backswing when I hit the ground behind me, it's causing that decal.[164]Steven Sharif

We really wanted to build the combat system to- like i said earlier- be as physical as possible. So we have it very animation driven. Everything is handled based on a reference of animation as opposed to nebulous timings, which allows it to feel very impactful and very responsive.[165]Keenan Reimer
We're not going to be having I think unique combat animations. However we will have unique non-combat animations, such as your idle, your walk, your run cycle: things that the combat attacks do not have to blend back into.[169]Steven Sharif

Idle animations

Idle animations (non-combat idle stances) will be selectible by players in the character creator.[105]

Part of the feedback that we got from the tank demonstration when we were holding that two-handed sword was that people would like to see variants of the types of non-combat idle stances that can be had with certain weapons; and so we decided to introduce a variant of that with having the [sword] rest on the on the shoulder; and that is something that we'll be exploring further to see just how much runway we can get out of custom and/or selective idle stances.[105]Steven Sharif

Character racial appearance

Facial adjustments in the Alpha-2 character creator (first pass).[113]

There is a great variation that's going to be available from a character standpoint when creating your character, especially around the face. Whether it be the shape of the jawline, the cheeks, the ears, the nose, the lips. You know we want to provide a lot of options and an agency to the player to customize their character appearance.[114]Steven Sharif

Aelan appearance

Vaelune have Jinn influence in their lineage, which manifests as an essence-like rupture in their skin after stepping through the divine gateways.[173]

The Vaelune have an interesting lineage and there is some influence there that when the Vaelune step through the portal, some portions of their body begin to exhibit this almost essence-like rupture in the skin; and you guys are going to see some examples of that in the future; and it is a bit of some Jinn influence in their lineage as a race that sets them apart from their Kaelar counterparts.[173]Steven Sharif

Dünir dwarven appearance

Latest Dünir female character concept art.[174]

The female Dünir models have received some upgrades![174]

info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.

Pyrian appearance

Py'rai male in-game footage.[178]

From a character customization standpoint, these will be adjustable: Their length, their size, their width, their color, whether or not they'll have features like flowers that can bloom on the actual antlers, if they have buds, how do those antlers interact with climates as you move into them, do they bloom?[179]Steven Sharif

All Py'rai will have antlers, but their length, size, width, color, and other components can be adjusted via the character creator.[179][180]

  • The horns are a unique feature of the Py'Rai, but it may be possible to remove them.[181]
  • Py'rai will be capable of having brown skin.[182]

Ren'Kai Appearance

Ren'Kai are large and 'buff' in appearance.[184][185]

Vek are "goblinesque" in appearance and have a somewhat "contorted" stature.[105][185]

Tulnar appearance

Tulnar character model concept art of the three base influences.[188]

There's a number of minor races and major races that all sought refuge within the Underrealm and we talked about how this particular player character race was going to have a pretty unique approach when it comes to character customization because with that background there comes different species influence in the race itself and we want players to be able to dial up or down those influences as they see fit between the humanoid, the simian or mammalian, and the reptilian influences; and as you dial those things up, your base body- if it exceeds a certain percentage threshold- will assume the form and stance of one of three primary types of influences that exist for the Tulnar. And now what you're going to see is those three distinct influences and you can be of course a hundred percent in one if you wish and you'll be very similar to what you're going to see here from the concepts; or you can mix-and-match and you can blend between the different influences.[189]Steven Sharif

The Tulnar race does not have sub-types. Instead, players will be able to significantly customize the appearance of Tulnar characters based on three base influences; or blend between these different influences.[189][190][191][192][193][194]

Races are primarily humanoid in appearance.[195]

  • There are feline and bestial components that can be scaled up when creating a Tulnar character but Tulnar do not equal furries.[122][191]
  • Catgirl and Loli Tulnar are not able to be created.[122]
Tulnar do not equal furries, but there are definitely some bestial components that you can scale up when you're creating your Tulnar character, so you could max that setting I guess. Whether or not that would give you what you would think of as a furry, I guess it's going to be up to your interpretation of what a Furry is.[191]Steven Sharif
Q: Will character creator allow us to make Tulnar that might look somewhat like Kobolds from Pathfinder or DnD?
A: I wouldn't say exactly, but there's definitely elements of Kobolds that you could incorporate in a character creator with the Tulnar, yes.[197]Steven Sharif
info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.
  • Mammalian Tulnar may have snout features, fur and inverted knees.[198]
  • Reptilian Tulnar may have more circular eyes and head shape, and scaly skin.[198]

Character naming

Characters will have a first-name and an optional surname (last name).[199]

  • There is a minimum length of three for a character name.[201]
  • Special characters, including apostrophes and hyphens, are currently not allowed in character names.[202]
Currently we don't allow special characters in character names (including apostrophes and/or hyphens). It's possible this changes in the future.[202]Ry Schueller

Character names will appear on the character sheet and optionally on the character website page.[53]

  • In-game a character's name is displayed above their head. This can be the first or last name.[53]

Name reservations

Name reservations were rewards for backing at the Pioneer level and higher and were previously available through the Voyager plus pre-order pack.[203][204][205]

  • Accounts will have name reservation tokens, that entitle its holder to reserve a name on a specific server when the reservation time comes.[206]

Name reservation availability

info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.

Name reservations were slated to begin during Alpha-1.[207]

Guild name

Name of Guild displayed next to character name.[54]

Friends list

A character may add another character to their friends list.[208]

  • In the future there may be a web-based or launcher-based capability to add an account as a friend, but this is not definite.[208]


Families are a means to relate up to nine characters.[209][210][163]

  • There are costs associated with family creation and maintenance.[212]
    • Some costs are shared among the family members and other costs are specific to the family head.[212]
There's not going to be a ton of ton of parcels all over the world- that might not be feasible for every player to get one; but... if you can be a family member and you have a whole family owning a freehold together, it'll allow many more players to see the system and partake in it.[214]Kory Rice
  • The family system is not a core pillar of the game and will be changed based on testing and feedback.[216]

Family summon

Skill Icon Origin Description
Family summon Yes Long duration cast (30 seconds to a minute) with an approximate 30 minute cooldown that slowly summons each of your family members to your location (up to eight members).[217][218] Players cannot be summoned in the following cases:
This will be tested in Alpha-2.[221]


Alpha-2 Level 30 Mage character sheet UI.[222]

We wanted to create something that would handle a couple of different roles, with obviously your equipment slots for what we call a "paper doll", which is that display of your character. Eventually it won't just be a image of your character, we hope to have the 3D character and be able to rotate around, look at what you're wearing. And then we wanted to support a couple of different features here, with some base stats; the equipment, which will show what equipment you have available to quick swap, so you don't have to have your inventory and the screen open; detailed stats for those people who want to get into all of the details; and then of course gear sets. So this is going to be able to swap to your sets of gear quickly; and being able to save different loadouts.[223]Colby Marchi

There are multiple gear slots in Ashes of Creation.[223]

  • Previously it was stated there were 16 gear slots.[232]


Gear sets

2nd Sword Division non-cosmetic gear set 3D renders. 3D model by Keith Kovach.[244]

Not all armor sets will be the cookie cutter set. They will have the influences from the crafter available in it, if it's a crafted set.[245]Steven Sharif

Equipping the Titanbark gear set in Alpha-2.[246]

We're going relatively traditional in the gear access points by being driven by level tier that players will have access to. So as you advance in your adventuring class you will begin to unlock the ability to equip gear of a higher level.[247]Steven Sharif

Gear sets (also known as tier sets) are a part of Ashes of Creation.[248][247][249]

Q: How often will armor be part of an entire armor set with other cosmetically matching pieces versus unique armor pieces that don't match or go along with anything else in the game?
A: There is a balance of both set pieces and non-set pieces and usually you're going to see at higher grades within a tier are going to be more predominantly set driven; and the lower interstitial power levels of the gear for that tier are the potentially bespoke pieces; and obviously those pieces are catered around a number of different interactions, such as ones you get from quests, ones that you get from drops, ones that you can craft, ones that you get from legendary bosses, ones that you get from guild-oriented tasks, or in-game favor and unique currencies. So there's different types of acquisition models and each of them has a spattering of either bespoke pieces or set-oriented pieces; and there are even varying levels of set pieces as well. So you might have a full eight piece set, or a three-piece set, or a five piece set, depending on where it lives within the tier.[248]Steven Sharif
info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.
  • There are passive abilities that can be chosen to become more adept with certain set types.[249]
  • There will be viable non-set builds.[253]

Best-in-slot items

A design goal for Ashes of Creation is to not have overarching best-in-slot items (BiS) that are meta for all situations.[254]

There's still going to be customization within realms for your archetype that you will want to spec into, knowing you're going into a certain fight, or into a certain raid, or into a certain war, or whatever it may be: and you may want to spec specifically and gear specifically and have people set up in a way that makes the most sense for that.[256]Margaret Krohn

Gear appearance

Alpha-1 female plate armor 3D render.[260]

We want to be realistic with the application of particular types of armor, such as plate armor. In this regard for the different sexes there's a fine line that has to be drawn between accentuating the form of the sex as well as making it somewhat realistic and actually applicable to the environment.[260]Steven Sharif

  • Armor will not be overly sexual in appearance.[260][262]
    I'm more of the mind that it wouldn't really serve a purpose to have bikini plate armor, just in like reality, if you're going to have armor, it should be protective. I think from a fashion statement is enjoyable for some people, but it's a an immersive issue.[261]Steven Sharif
    • Some armor and costumes will be more revealing than others, but there will not be nudity in the game.[264]
    There might be sliders, but there are not gonna be naked sliders.[264]Steven Sharif
Each race is getting its custom geo pieces, which then will share thematic components such as color palette, attachments, design filigree. Those types of things will get shared across the geo but generally you're going to see unique races with unique geo.[268]Steven Sharif
  • Cosmetics can be used by all races but there may be slight variations to make them work with the body builds of each race.[273]
  • Hair will likely be masked if helmet display is toggled on.[277]

Appearance slots/Transmogs

Gear will have appearance slots (Transmutation/Transmog/cosmetic slots) that are used to copy the appearance of an item (in some cases).[280][249]

  • There are rules when applying cosmetics to specific items, unlike costumes, which don't have level restrictions.[281]
  • Cosmetic slots can be toggled on or off on their character by the player.[282]
  • A "default player appearance" may be automatically applied during sieges or other large scale battles to improve client-side performance.[152][153]
Cosmetics, whether purchased from the shop or earned in game, are an important component of MMORPGS I personally enjoy; and there's a lot of collectors out there who spend a great deal of time either in-game achieving these things or spend money purchasing them from the cosmetic only marketplace; and we don't want to demean or reduce that achievement or that expenditure. So it's going to be situational where the default appearance will be applied and can be activated.[152]Steven Sharif


Attachments are able to be unlocked as flair pieces to armor to create a customizable look.[283]

  • There will be hundreds of attachments available ranging from a small clasp to the front plate of a breast plate.[283]

Gear appearance priority

Players can set the appearance priority for the items they wish to show in their Back and Belt slots.[225][231][284]

  • Only one item can show at a time, and that is determined by player choice.[226]


Progression occurs through a variety of pathways.[285][286]

Having the ability to gain power at a sacrifice... That's a way to reach a horizontal type of progression. It may not be entirely, because there could potentially be a meta if balancing isn't done correctly; but the objective there is to make sure we have both vertical and horizontal progression in the game.[289]Steven Sharif
Multiple playstyles should be relevant and viable. Additionally, you have a spread between casual players and hard-core players; and most of us exist somewhere on that spectrum. The progression path in a society or religion is more conducive to the time we have to play. Whereas, someone else may be playing several hours a day, and they have a better opportunity for the raid/level progression that might require some more dedication. So we want to have these different progression paths available to accommodate the different times in our lives that we have to play the game. And all of those types of progressions will make us relevant in some way shape or form to the general world.[292]Steven Sharif
The way that Ashes is constructed is there are multiple paths of progression from a from a PvX perspective, a wide net perspective that players have interest in; and you're not going to be able to become the master of everything. So you're going to have to pick and choose, but even picking and choosing that gives you a place within that aspect of the world at a place that's going to be something that you can build up a reputation around.[285]Steven Sharif
  • The ratio that various progression systems influence player power will evolve over time. In the early game adventuring level may be the dominant influence on player power. Gear may become more influential on player power closer toward endgame.[293]
Q: Could you explain in detail what you mean by 50% of player power when talking about gear influence on player power?
A: That's just a general allocation of what players can expect to pursue when enhancing their player character power. Now obviously, the distribution and ratio of those types of influences, whether it be itemization, whether it be level, whether it be, augments choices, and/or skill tree choices: those influences and ratios change through the leveling curve. So, at lower levels your character level is going to be more influential over character power than itemization will be, but at endgame or higher levels, or at the end of the adventuring level progression, that's when itemization really gets an emphasis for its ratio of player power.[293]Steven Sharif
The game hosts a wide array of progression paths, and some of those paths will grant additional paths to augmenting your threat generation. This can be in the form of enchantments and stats ... and even in the form of augments granted from societies and religions. Gear and skills choice are also a big component.[295]Steven Sharif

Character level

Alpha-1 early iteration of the level-up effect by Jim Sanders.[296]

One of the cool abilities we all love seeing and gives us a major dopamine response is when our character levels up.[296]Steven Sharif

Leveling won't follow a traditional linear path, although classic mechanics for leveling exist.[288][297]

Leveling: the act of of going out and adventuring, of killing monsters, and combat in general is the most tactile and moment-to-moment type of gameplay that you're going to experience in Ashes of Creation; and I think at every step of the way in that adventure it should be fun, and it should be something that you enjoy doing, and it should be something that's rewarding, and it should be something that teaches you more about the immersive world that you're in and allows you to follow a compelling storyline.[298]Steven Sharif
  • Some levels may offer more rewards than others.[302]
I think you can emphasize some levels more than others and that's a great way to do progression. But I think ultimately that you should see a reward for your progress or effort spent.[302]Steven Sharif
As part of our ideals as a game we're not going to give boosts away. We're not going to auto-level up a character. You have to spend time acclimating yourself to what this game is, to what the world that you're part of is; and that's an investment- a time investment; and that plays towards our ideas of risk-versus-reward; and I've always said our game's not going to be for everybody and that's okay.[303]Steven Sharif
If I have a skill that does a thousand damage to a target of equal level I don't want my skill to do zero damage to a target that's five levels above me.[305]Steven Sharif
  • A player could in theory level to max level at a single node, providing that node was at a high-enough stage, but it would not be the most effective means of leveling.[306]

Level cap

The level cap at launch is expected to be level 50.[307][308]

Lower level characters will have usefulness in mass combat (such as Node sieges) that is not directly dependent on their level, such as manning siege weapons, helping repair fortifications, bringing proximity-based buffs to key positions, using stealth or scaling walls. These types of things are relevant to the tide of battle and do not require the player to be max-level or have high combat stats.[314]

The idea is not to be a game where somebody can essentially no life for a week and be max level. The idea is to incorporate some significant chunk of time but still respect the casual player, because the way we respect the casual player is not everything is driven in our game through the adventuring progression line. Not everything is driven through your class level per-se. There's a lot of different progression paths that are available and make you relevant within certain systems and mechanics within the game; and some of those paths are more casual friendly and some of those paths are more hardcore friendly. So with regards to the adventuring class, the idea is to make sure that investment needs to be pretty significant and that the reward then is respective of that investment.[309]Steven Sharif

End game

Ashes of Creation will not have a typical end-game where content is essentially static and repetitive. Instead, max-level characters will be able to engage with many different gameplay loops that open up based on how the world progresses over time.[315][316]

Endgame to me communicates static. It is static structure. Okay, you've entered this loop, now and this is your end-game loop that you will repeat over and over. Whereas instead, the approach for Ashes is you have now reached a point where all of these loops are relevant; and the loops are present to you depending on how the community engages the world. And it's up to you to identify the most promising loops because you have a finite amount of time and resources in which you can engage with them. And that's then where strategy becomes a part of the picture: How will I choose to engage with these loops to maximize my return, or to maximize the specific benefit I wish to bring in individual, group, myself, or guild.[315]Steven Sharif
Part of the whole experience with nodes is that there is no real end-game, in that the world is constantly shifting every day. Month one is going to be really different from month two; and that's for the level 50s and level 1s.[316]Jeffrey Bard

Class progression

Class progression in Ashes of Creation proceeds as follows:[317]

Artisan progression

Artisan progression.[329][330][331]
Artisan level Artisan certification Profession limit per character
1-10.[332][241] Novice.[329][333] 22.[329][330]
10-20.[334][241] Apprentice.[329] 5.[329][330]
20-30.[334] Journeyman.[329][331] 4.[329][330]
30-40.[334] Master.[329][331] 3.[329][330]
40-50.[334][335] Grandmaster.[329][331] 2.[329][336][330]

Artisan progression occurs based on experience (repetition of tasks) as well as achievements of certain benchmarks within each artisan branch (Gathering, Processing and Crafting).[338][339] Progression in each artisan profession is per-character.[340][341][342][86]

All 22 professions, the players get to be novice of; and then it starts narrowing from there. So, after that you'll only be able to be apprentice of five things. You can be a journeyman in four things. You can be a master in three things; and you can be a grandmaster in two things. So you'll need to narrow, but you can also diversify to support the professions that you want to first push further in.[330]Kory Rice
If you are grand master in that profession you can max out the entire tree. But you can only grand master 2 things.[349]Kory Rice
  • Choosing a specific path in the skill tree allows the player an opportunity to specialize in a certain area. This encourages player inter-dependency, enhancing the artisan experience.[351]
Q: In regards to character level and artisan level. We know that currently there are two separate things. That being said, what prevents a player from staying level one and partying up with a level 50 player to then gather level 50 resources in the high zones? That way, anyone who wants to take those resources will have to kill the gatherer who is level one and get a large amount of corruption for killing a level one as a level 50.
A: Gathering higher level resources requires significant advancement within a particular profession for that gatherable resource. So, if I'm a Miner and I want to access the highest possible mineral, I need to be a master miner; and in order to achieve the master minor status I am going to be gaining adventuring level experience through that process, because many of those quest lines, many of those achievements are facilitated through quest lines. Some of those quest lines interface with adventuring difficulties that are out in the wild at certain levels. So that's going to predicate me- that's going to be a predicate for me to achieve a certain level in order to complete some of these quest lines and achieve that master status. So you will you will likely not see the ability of a level one alt character having the access to high level mineral mining, or any other type of gatherable out there.[352]Steven Sharif

Religion progression

There are player progression paths within a religion.[354][355]

  • Players may follow only one religion at a time.[354][355]
  • Religious progression is based on quests that are only offered to followers of that religion.[354]
  • Religions have a ranking system based on a player's performance in these quests and the number of quests completed.[354][356]
  • Changing religion will cause loss of progress in a player's previous religion.[354][355]
It depends on their dedication to the religion itself; their performance when it comes to certain religion's religious objectives; their contribution to the development of that religion within the world. There's a lot of different markers that we use at each stage to determine how they progress within the religion.[357]Steven Sharif

Naval progression

Mariner classes (also referred to as boatsmanship classes, boatsman skills or seamanship) contain different skill trees arranged in a similar manner to Artisan classes. As a player gains experience in these different skills they become more adept at using them.[358][359]

The benefits of having Mariner expertise is not just related to activities you can do on the ships, but will also incorporate skills that become available when you're piloting ships as well. There's a few things that Mariner classes provide: interaction with attachments on the ship, driving the ship itself, utilizing the ship's components—like furling the sails or not—as well as repairing ships when damage is taken—the speed at which you can do it, the health you regenerate when you do it.[358]Steven Sharif

Guild progression

Guild perks UI. Alpha-1 screenshot. Image credit: Guild:Overlord

As you're leveling up the guild and you're getting these points to either allocate towards expanding the guilds member count or allocate towards adding certain passive abilities that your guild members can gain by being guild members. You're also going to see as you're leveling up the guild through different type of quest-based, participation-based, node-based, organization-based systems and ways that those quests hook into the world. You're also going to see perhaps some augment abilities at the upper tiers of the guild levels become unlocked for certain members that have a classification of officer or knight, will have access to those different types of augment abilities that might get unlocked should you go down the non expansive member lane; and the idea there is to offer these benefits to smaller groups.[361]Steven Sharif

Guild progression occurs through participation in different systems.[361]

Guild progression grants skill points that the guild can allocate to unlock aspects of their guild skill tree, such as passive skills, augments and membership count.[361][363][364]

When you first form a guild and you're level zero, you may have 30 guild slots available to you and that's your core guild group; and you can move people in and out of that group because when you get expansion slots they form separate groups in the guild structure that might be a Knight or Squadron group: whatever you're going to want to call it, because you can customize it based on the guild; and then those groups will have access to certain types of passives. Some of the passive types will be horizontal, some will be vertical; and it will be dependent on where you as a guild member are placed within those groups; and the placement within those groups are determined by the guild administrators. And so, guilds will then spend currency as well as skill points to invest in those passives for those particular groups; and so what we want to do is we want to maintain the strongest passives for the central groups and allow it to decrease in power going outward from there. So, even guilds that select to go expansionist still have some passive abilities that they can spec into, but the guilds that choose to stay smaller they can consert their skill points towards the more central groups leveling up those passives to higher strengths; and those passive types are things like waterfall stat augments, crit rate, regen values. And then they can get a little bit more intricate with the types of effects that they have, like negating a... spell attack against you as a target every 30 seconds, or something. It depends on what we're talking about with the abilities. They they are wide ranging, but the intent is for them to be impactful.[365]Steven Sharif
  • Guild passive skills are assigned to specific ranks within the guild, each of which has a number of slots depending on guild progression.[365]
    • These skills can increase certain waterfall stats such as (Regen and Crit rate) relating to that rank's ability to perform in combat or potentially in other aspects of the guild, such as the economy.[365][361]
    • Guild passives can have also have more intricate effects, such as negating certain attacks within a cooldown period.[365]
    • Guilds cannot respec their skill points once allocated. This is subject to testing.[370]
    • Guild members do not need to be citizens of the same node in order to benefit from passive skills and augments.[371]
It's not always going to be combat. You could have an economic focus guild. You could have a trade oriented guild; and there's all sorts of things that you can put together and give your guild its own identity.[361]Jeffrey Bard
info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.
  • Guild augments may apply at the upper tiers of guild progression.[361]
    • This applies to guilds that have opted for the non-expansive member route.[361]
    • It benefits guild members with a classification of officer or knight.[361]

Social organization progression

Social organization progression is achieved through accomplishing tasks or quests within that social organization.[372]

  • Some progression is static, but more competitive achievements will be seasonal, based on a ladder system.[373]
info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.

There are hierarchical paths pertaining to specific questlines for the organization's thematic.[372] These quests will either be cooperative with or adversarial against other nodes based on their mutual war status.[374]

- For example, a Thieves' guild may have objectives and quests toward securing a particular item to enable players to advance within the organization.[372]
Social organizations are going to have questlines that players participate in which some will include sabotage, espionage, intrigue... While it's not necessarily player versus player in the combat sense, it is player versus player in pitting communities in those organizations against each other in a competitive atmosphere, where only some things can be accomplished by certain communities; and not everybody can succeed at a particular task. So, I think that that's a unique way to involve meaningful conflict that doesn't necessarily have to relate to PvP, because obviously we have a lot of PvP systems in the game and and there are many ways for players to participate in player versus player combat; but we also want to make sure that from a progression standpoint, from a system standpoint there are going to be abilities of individuals to follow these questlines, these tasks that will pit organizations against each other, specifically from an organizational standpoint.[375]Steven Sharif

Character rewards

Characters will receive rewards on their in-game birthday.[376]

Daily login rewards are something we really have to think about in terms of what we want to offer... We want the game itself to offer enough reward to log in daily rather than trying to make it an explicit like gamified reward.[376]Jeffrey Bard


Achievements record things of note that happen in Ashes of Creation.[378]

The achievement System should record things of note so that people are able to etch their name, or their guild, in the history of the server; and mayorship would be one of those things.[378]Steven Sharif
info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.
It redefines what the players will experience in an MMORPG to come into a wilderness that is devoid of really any structure outside of what the community creates themselves; and then what can be created can be changed, if they want to experience a storyline that's been seen on another server, but you're fighting a dragon because you're near a mountain and the other server's fighting a Kraken because they're near the coast and you want to fight that Kraken because of its drop table. If you want to meta it or because you just want that under your belt: to be the server first to take out that Kraken and you have yet to develop the node there, it's incumbent upon you to manifest that in the game.[383]Steven Sharif


Titles are unlocked by achievements in aspects of the game.[384]

There's social organizations, there's religions, there's Mayor, there's Kings and Queens, there's Guild Leaders, there's Guild officers: All of those can incorporate particular types of titles that grant you access to certain things; and that's part of our risk versus reward. That's part of our not everybody gets a trophy. These are achievements that we want you to strive for and there's plenty of those types of achievements within the game because there's lots of nodes and there's lots of different pseudo factions that exist that you get to identify and say "Oh I'd like to do that particular thing very well and better than others." And you can strive to do so.[384]Steven Sharif


Ashes of Creation gathers tracking data to facilitate achievements, titles and other accolades on a server.[390]

Visibility of those types of things on the server help to promote a competitive atmosphere. If there is an attainable impression that you can work towards, so that others know your success, you have more drive to succeed.[390]Steven Sharif

Account management

Ashes of Creation web site design preview (WIP).[392]

The account management page is used to assign or reassign cosmetics to characters within an account.[83][393][84][85]

  • Cosmetics can be reassigned to other characters (alts), but can only be active on one character at a time.[83][84][85]
  • There will likely be a cooldown for reassigning cosmetics between characters.[83]

Player to player trading

There is player-to-player trading in Ashes of Creation.[394][395][396][397]

Q: Will Ashes of Creation have player-to-player trading? Will there be anything stopping me from gifting a friend that's fresh to the game a bunch of in-game money to help them get on their feet quickly?
A: There won't be anything to stop you from doing that.[396]Steven Sharif
The nature of player to player trading already introduces that in an open economy game... that is why we have measures to attempt and heat flag suspicious transactions, active gms and other honeypot systems/agents that will be active in discovering those types of cheaters.[395]Steven Sharif

Mobile/web companion app

info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.

A companion app (mobile app/web interface) allows players who are not logged into the game to have authority over certain services and mechanics.[405][406] Some functionality may come post-launch.[407]

Specific dates that you can have running as reminders in your guild UI, this will also be something that I would like to be available on the mobile companion app as well. So essentially you can receive notifications via a calendar update on guild events that the leaders or the officers have the ability to pin within the game will also give you notifications on the mobile app as well. That's my intention at least.[410]Steven Sharif
Some of it may come post-launch... but we do want people to interact with the game on their phones when they're away from the computer; and we're going to do as much as we can to make that cool.[407]Jeffrey Bard

Character page

There is no planned in-game functionality to leave personal notes regarding player characters.[411]

We don't plan to have in-game tools to provide that tracking. Instead you will be expected to track that yourselves.[411]Steven Sharif
info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap.

A character sheet will be available closer to live launch that shows the following:[412]

You will have a unique homepage for each character and that homepage will be able to be customized by the user to display unique information. It will have a small out-of-game RPG component where you can construct background and traits and stuff like that.[414]Steven Sharif

The character page will be accessible in game by opening a browser through the UI.[413]

That's part of the character sheet desire for us which hopefully will be accessible in game as well by opening a browser through our UI where you can get back history of a character that that character has input themselves into journal entries that they may choose to share with others... For role play perspective we want people to be in depth with their characters.[413]Steven Sharif

The player can manage what info is shown on the character page.[412]
