Gruppendynamik aim to bring players together.[1]

One of the main philosophical pillars behind our design was that PvE must be impactful and inclusive. We want solo players, small groups and large groups to all have a home within our system.[2]

Ashes of Creation is in development. These systems could change through playtesting and player feedback.[1]


We're not creating a solo game, but it doesn't mean that we don't offer gameplay that is solo centric as well: It lives in addition to the social aspect of What MMOs provide; and so part of what we do in order to to give that element of gameplay is we have quest lines that are devoted towards solo players. We have hunting grounds. Obviously one of the benefits of being a solo player is you get to keep everything that drops. You don't have to share loot with a party or with friends; that's one benefit of being a solo player. But it's going to be more difficult to overcome challenges; and those individuals who are up to taking that additional level of of difficulty are going to excel perhaps in their character progression a bit faster than those who are more group-centric. It's going to be a little bit of a roll of the dice there because there are loot tables, there are reward tables that accompany that, but it's important to note that from a content perspective Ashes of Creation is looking to fulfill both that solo-oriented mind in gameplay as well as the group and social experience; and a lot of times those paths diverge: They move apart, they come back together; and that process is going to be seen throughout the leveling in Ashes of Creation where you'll have more opportunities for solo gameplay and some opportunities for group gameplay.[3]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation is designed for solo players as well as large and small groups.[3][4][5]

The idea behind an 8-person group is to allow us to really amplify party roles, and to create a need for each of the archetypes in every party.[1]
  • Schlachtzüge will have 40 man groups.[6]
  • Content will be tailored for 40, 16 and 8 person group sizes.[7]
  • Arenen will have 1 man, 3 man, 5 man and possibly 20 man Free-For-All (Deathmatch) group sizes.[8]
    • There won't specifically be guild vs guild arenas but team-based matchmaking allows teams to face other teams.[9]
  • Burgbelagerungen are expected to have at minimum 250x250 players to be on a single battlefield, with the possibility of increasing this to 500x500 over time.[10][11][12][13]
The minimum goal is 500 players on a single battlefield. I think we will be able to hit 500vs500 but we shall see.[13]Steven Sharif

Solo players

Ashes of Creation provides gameplay options for solo oriented players.[3]

For those solo players who don't really care about finding a community to play with but they want to have one when they need it, there's going to be a lot of opportunities from a dialogue perspective, in-game chat options; you can join as part of citizenships: there's a lot of pseudo factions there- social organizations that give you an in to other players without the strong bonds that typically come with guild-oriented organizations; and I think that that's a comfortable medium between the two.[3]Steven Sharif


Die 64 Klassen sind in acht primäre Archetypen unterteilt. Das Balancing der aktiven Skills bezieht sich nur auf diese acht primären Archetypen.[17][18]

  • Jedem Archetypen sind vier Gruppen von Erweiterungen zugewiesen. Das Balancing der Erweiterungen bezieht sich auf die vier Erweiterungs-Gruppen von jedem der acht Archetypen.[18]

Even though augments do radically change the way your active skills provide you abilities, there's still a primary focus on the base archetype itself and not the 64 whole classes.[17]Steven Sharif

We're not really talking about 64 true classes, we're talking about eight classes with 64 variants... There isn't as much variance between the 64 classes as you might expect. It's not like there are 64 different versions of... radically different classes.[17]Jeffrey Bard

Balancing in Ashes of Creation wird auf Gruppen ausgerichtet sein und nicht auf 1v1 Kämpfe.[17][19]

There will be match ups in 1v1s where one class will be superior to another; and that application should be a rock-paper-scissors dynamic. We want there to be counter-play between the different classes... Instead it's going to be a group focused balance, where as long as you have the diversity of classes present, that's going to be an equal level playing field. It's going to be very dependent on skill and strategy.[19]Steven Sharif

Bestimmte sekundäre Archetypen können die Lücke zu ihrem Konter schließen.[20]

Certain archetypes are capable of moving the gap between their counterpart per-se. If I am a Tank archetype and a Mage is my counter, I can take a Mage secondary and bridge the divide slightly; and then move my identity that direction ever so slightly.[20]Steven Sharif

Der Alpha 1 Test ist primär auf die Kernfunktionalität fokussiert, anstatt auf das Balancing des Kampfsystems .[21]


Es wird keine allgemeine Gruppensuche in Ashes of Creation geben. Stattdessen gibt es Anschlagbretter, um lokale Gruppenbildung zu fördern.[22]


Anschlagbretter are available within nodes[22] and player taverns.[24]


Beute-Tabellen (drop tables) of world bosses or dungeon bosses have a small RNG chance of dropping gear (completed items).[31][7]


Looting rights (also known as Loot tagging) is based on a blended tag and damage done system.[50][51]

  • The first party to obtain a tag (on a mob or boss) will gain an approximately 5-10% edge over competing parties in terms of the total damage done when determining looting rights.[50][51]
    • These numbers will be balanced based on testing.[50]
  • At the end of the fight, the party with the highest damage done, including first tagging bonus, will be granted looting rights.[50][51]
We have a blended approach of damage done and a tag benefit. So if you tag the boss first, or you tag the loot- whatever the loot target is first- you're gonna get a benefit in the damage overall determination. So if you need to have 51% of damage done in order to qualify your raid, or the plurality of damage done if there's even three or four raids, then tagging first might give you a five or ten percent edge. We'll play with that number- balance it based on testing, but generally that's our approach in competing loot rights[50]Steven Sharif
Q: If looting rights are based on a blended tag and damage done system, will there be any mechanics in place to ensure roles like tanks and healers have an equal shot even when they haven't dealt as much damage?
A: That's the reason for the blended approach. The reason that we're doing a hybrid system between tag and damage done is for the purposes of those classes who may not be as DPS oriented as other classes. The tag system- all classes are going to have a sprinkling of immediate effects- of instantaneous casts and they can use that to tag a target, and that'll give them a modifier on the looting rights: So plus 10 or plus 15 will balance that, but it'll give them plus 10 to 15 on overall damage done if they tag the target and then their damage will make up the remainder of that percentage completion. So if I do 50 damage to a target but someone else has the tag I'm not going to be able to claim that looting right. They'll have done the other 50 plus 10 or 15.[52]Steven Sharif

Master gatherers may have the ability to "spoil" a boss' loot.[53]

If you want to be able to get those mats from the boss, they're just not going to drop for anybody. They will only drop for a master gatherer who is capable of extracting those resources from the creature itself... The reason why we say there's a lot of interdependencies between the crafters of the world and the raiders of the world and our PvPers of the world is because we don't want to house the capability to attain these things all within the adventuring class. We want there to be an influence necessary from the craftsmen's guild to come in to either come and participate and spoil the boss and gather the goods or something along those lines.[53]Steven Sharif

Loot rules

Alpha-2 looting UI preview.[30]

In the group loot obviously there's a lot of functionality here that parties have the ability to customize. There can be loot master, there can be round-robin, there can be need/greed/pass that's applied on a per rarity basis depending on the party's choices.[30]Steven Sharif

Alpha-2 vote to change loot allocation method UI.[54]

Ashes of Creation intends to use traditional loot rules, selected by the party or raid leader.[55][51][1]

  • Group loot rules are defined on a per-rarity basis.[30]
  • A majority of party members must vote to approve any changes to group loot allocation changes.[54]
  • The developers are considering using a double-tap interaction to loot all containers within a close proximity radius.[56]
  • There won't be auto-looting pets.[57]
  • It will be possible to kick a player from a party prior to them acquiring loot.[58]
Yes, technically it would be possible for you to kick a player prior to acquiring loot. However, again because we are a game that relies on social interactions, there are reputations to be had; and if you acquire a reputation as a raid leader, or as a party leader, of doing something dirty like that, then it's unlikely you'll be able to Garner the support of future party members and/or raids to lead efforts against these raid bosses.[58]Steven Sharif
  • Whoever is first to loot gets the loot.[55]
  • A master looter (or lootmaster) is a player designated by the party leader to decide how loot is distributed in a dungeon or raid party.[1]
Need or greed.[30][1]

Bidding system.[1]
  • Intrepid are investigating a potential bidding system, which allows players to bid on items instead of rolling for them.[1]
    • The highest bidder wins the item.[1]
    • The gold then goes into a pool that is split among the rest of the party members.[1]

Party roles

In Ashes of Creation wird es das traditionelle Trippel aus den Rollen Tank, DD und Support/Heiler geben.[1][60]

  • Obwohl traditionelle Rollen vorhanden sind, sollten sich die Spieler nicht durch ihren primären Archetypen geprägt fühlen.
  • Die im Klassensystem verfügbaren Fähigkeitserweiterungen ermöglichen es, Charaktere außerhalb ihrer Hauptrolle zu personalisieren.
  • Spieler können auch ihre Wahl des Archetyps verdeutlichen, um ihre Hauptrolle zu stärken.

Target markers

The UI will potentially incorporate target marker symbols above player's heads that are visible by other party members.[61]


Ashes of Creation bietet diverse Inhalte, die sich um Allianzen drehen.[62]

Content that revolves around alliances specifically and progression within the development of that alliance; and the ability to share some common services between guilds that are part of that alliance. I think that additionally allowing alliances to toggle certain relationships with nodes as an interaction is beneficial. That's going to provide an interesting dynamic for players who are either members of the particular node that has the relationship established or members of the Alliance. So I think that obviously building systems is is about creating the channels by which these players can form bonds and the more layers you have around those channels of bonding between the different guilds or players, the more sustainable that relationship.[62]Steven Sharif


Gildenanführer können ab einer bestimmten Stufe Allianzen gründen, in dem sie ein Abenteuer abschliessen.[63]

  • Sobald eine Allianz erstellt ist, kann der Gildenanführer bis zu drei weitere Gilden der Allianz hinzufügen.[63]
  • Es gibt keine Mitgliederbeschränkung innerhalb von Allianzen, lediglich maximal vier Gilden dürfen in einer Allianz sein.[63]
  • Gildenanführer können Ressourcen in eine Gildenallianz Bank umverteilen.[64]
  • Es gibt allianzspezifische Abenteuerreihen.[64][65]
  • Mitglieder einer Allianz haben einen geteilten Chat Kanal.[64][65]
  • Allianzen haben Verbindungen und Ausrüstungsgegenstände die erworben werden können.[64]
  • Gilden können auch Handelsabkommen gründen.[65]

You can only invite a number of guilds to the alliance before you must form a new alliance; and then those alliance can have a de facto friendship but they won't have any game component of connection. What the alliance system would allow is pooling of resources into by guild leaders into an alliance guild alliance bank. Will allow certain participation in different quest lines. It will allow common area chat for members and it will allow affiliations and gear that can be attained as well.[64]Steven Sharif

We have a specific system that relates to being able to invite another guild into an alliance that sets a flag on those characters with regards to being able to combat them, being able to share a chat system with them, being able to participate in specific types of quests and/or alliance warehouses and guild homes; with regards to the relationship of castle sieges and participating in node warfare and node activities. If you're not in an alliance with someone, you're in a neutral state so to speak. You can have trade agreements between different guilds and then you can also have Guild Wars which shows a state of war between you guys. I think that's the baseline of how we're going to develop interaction between guilds.[65]Steven Sharif

Da Schnellreisen sehr limitiert ist, müssen Gilden gut vorausplanen, damit sich die richtigen Mitglieder zur richtigen Zeit am richtigen Ort befinden. Allianzen mit anderen Gilden werden dies vereinfachen.[66]

There's going to be some mechanics at play that could have even Alliance Wars so to speak: A war between guilds and a war between alliances maybe. When we delve into the blog about Guild Wars we're going to talk about alliances.[67]Steven Sharif

Siege alliances

When a siege begins, temporary alliances are formed among attackers and defenders.[68]

  • For node sieges, citizens of the node or provincial nodes being attacked are automatically registered as defenders.[69]
  • There are many reasons to participate as an ally in the attack or defence of other nodes.[70]
    • Titles.
    • Items.
    • Materials.
    • Money.
    • Social bonds.

Many incentives exist that can benefit your node and yourself personally by participating in the attack or defense of cities. These range from titles, to items, to materials, to money. Additionally, aiding others may help you strengthen bonds when your assets are threatened.[70]Steven Sharif


Ein Zugehörigkeiten-Baum wird entwickelt, welcher bestimmt, welche Einheiten an Attacken gegen andere Einheiten in der Hierarchie teilnehmen könnnen.[71]

There is guild affiliation, there's party affiliation, there's a raid affiliation, alliance affiliation, there's a citizenship affiliation, there's society affiliation, there's religious affiliation. All of these things have some hierarchy; and within that hierarchy there's the ability to participate within certain systems. So for example, if you have a node that has fallen under your vassal state and you're a citizen of the parent node, then you could participate in a siege against the vassal node but if you're a citizen of the vassal node you could not participate as an attacker against the parent node; so there's a hierarchy, unless you were to renounce your citizenship.[71]Steven Sharif

Intuitive grouping

There are systems such as quests, events and monster coins that lend themselves toward intuitive grouping, but no specific decision has been made to include this functionality.[72]
