The Ashes of Creation Dungeon

Ashes of Creation: Apocalypse development clarification
  • 1,345

Steven shared some development insight on Discord today, explaining the reasoning behind creating the Apocalypse side-project and the choice of battle royale game mode.

I think this statement sums it up pretty well:

Steven:
"It only had to do with three things (Regarding APOC): Testing the systems we wanted to test, spending as little time as possible creating something to achieve the previous point, and getting it done in a timeline that allowed us to fix/change what needed to be changed before alpha/beta of the MMORPG."

And here is the rest of his message, where he explains more in detail:

Steven:
"So, to recap the reasoning we developed APOC (or originally what we intended Alpha One Phase 1 to be), was to address concerns about combat, and specifically how we would integrate action combat into a hybrid combat system for Ashes. When we planned how to best accommodate this intent, we desired massive design date from skill usage, reticle accuracy, camera POV, high frequency player populations etc (long list)...

I am very happy to announce that the The AoC Dungeon and EU PvX Hand of Unity guild, have now entered a partnership!*

Such a partnership is an exciting opportunity to pool our resources and ensure that the Ashes of Creation community have a lively and inclusive fan site which provides users with the very latest news and articles on both Apocalypse and the MMO. Particularly when it comes to a forum based platform to share ideas, hype, builds and other information, while we wait for Alpha 1.

As a content creator, our Dungeon Squad provides an opportunity for you to grow your following as well as being featured prominently to other members of the community. We are keen to hear from you if you have any interest in the joining the initiative, particularly as our monthly site hits have increased dramatically over the last several months.

As a guild leader, we want to hear from you! Despite the affiliation with Hand of Unity we are still looking to represent all...

In the last few days Steven has been kind enough to answer quite a few questions from the community!

Q&A:

Zephirius:
Having made that official, do you still hold true to the "Before 2020?"
Steven: As I said, I’m waiting on a few answers.

Ruby: Who gets the taxes from guild castles, the castle or the guild?
Steven: Both

Ruby: So the guild can freely use this for whatever they want?
Steven: Some of the funds yes

Dygz: And, when the Castle changes hands some taxes stay with the Castle and some taxes stay with the guild?
Steven: Correct

MagicMan LA of Dphantom: That mage levitation ability was so cool..would it be possible to have a similar mobility ability for mage in the MMO?
Steven: That was a bit OP, it may not show up in the MMO, we shall see

Galecto: Are the shop costumes modular or one piece?

Today Steven dropped some big confirmations about guild castles!

From Discord:

Jahlon: Do Castles influence the region around them? Or just the 3 nodes attached to the castle?

Steven: The region around them.

Ruby: Castle nodes exist outside of the traditional node system. Which parts are they excluded from?
Steven: Many systems, citizenship, zones of influence, freehold system, govt, societies.

Ruby: Caravans?
Steven: They can receive and launch caravans.

Ruby: Quests and tasks?
Steven: There are quests that are available in the castle nodes.

Jahlon: No freeholds on the 3 nodes attached to the castle?
Steven:
Correct.

About taxes and its influence range:
Steven: Node taxes apply to the node itself and their freeholds. Castles impose a tax on all revenue for the nodes within its region...
New website style for The AoC Dungeon!

Welcome! The new website style is now live!

Everyone should now have a new style enabled by default, the "dungeon style". It has been custom ported for my Xenforo 2 website, and should fit a lot more into the Ashes of Creation game\dungeon theme! 😀

Logo/other adjustments
One major part is still not done, and that is the new logo. Will be finalized this week.
There will also be continuous adjustments throughout the week to fine-tune everything.

Feedback is important, so please tell me what you think!

Old style
"What about the old style? I kind of preferred that one.."

Fear not, you can still use the old one if you wish. Switching to the "alternative black style" is easy, just press the button with the light-bulb, labeled "Change style". It is located right above the footer. -->

The AoC Dungeon 1 year anniversary!



At this day in 2018, I made my first post on the website, thus marking the official launch. I am very proud of the progress so far! We have made detailed stream recaps of all streams in 2018, awesome feature articles (example) and more. The AoC Dungeon has become a official content creator for the game, and we’ve expanded the website with all sorts of cool new features and improvements, such as the guild list.
I’ve made lots of new friends, recruited some amazing staff members, and can’t wait to see how the site and its community evolves in 2019.

For 2019 we will...
