Glorious Greetings Ashes Community! Since this is my first article on the AoC Dungeon I borrowed Steven’s salutations for the first and last time. For those that are not aware (probably most of you), the Ashes of Creation Wiki site is collaborating with the AoC Dungeon to bring the community expanded content that we don’t feel would be appropriate for the wiki. The wiki is fully sourced, and not based on opinion, speculation, or off hand unofficial comments. That said, sometimes you just want to tell people what you think, whether that be to discuss, demerit, or celebrate a topic. Therefore, we felt like the AoC Dungeon was a great place to host all our various ramblings. Our newly added guest editor team consists of BraneGames, Chaoser, Deus, Tiberius, Ziltch, and everyone’s favorite vampire hunter. I hope you find our content...

Hello there, Ziltch here and today I will be talking about crafting/artisanship, but first, let’s go over the basics.

In Ashes of Creation, Artisans are divided into three different categories.

Gathering is the Professions that involve gathering of resources.

Rejoice dear ashlings, Ashes of Creation has now officially entered Alpha 1 Phase 1, and with that the NDA has been completely lifted. This also means that all Alpha 1 backers have been invited to test the battle royale combat mode (~ 10 000). In addition, all Alpha 2 backers have been invited for this weekend test as well. In the coming weeks they will also be inviting beta backers, all Alpha 0 backers, and eventually all registered users on the Ashes of Creation website.

Steven Sharif said:
We are happy to announce the testing is going very well and we are collecting a lot of useful data. Everyone at Intrepid cannot thank our Glorious community enough for their help in making mmos great... once more."
Everyone who is eligible should have received their mail yesterday/today with access code and download link.

Yesterday Steven decided to drop the NDA temporarily for official content creators, which resulted in lots of streamers providing live gameplay footage from the battle royale squad testing. The test lasted for about 3 hours, providing Intrepid with tons of useful information.

Steven also shared on Twitter that next week, also those who are not official content creators, will be able to stream and share their content from the Alpha 1 Arena test.

Alpha 1 Stress Test Thoughts: Updated 9/23/18
  • 4,298

I was one of the lucky 250 to gain access to alpha 1 stress test on Sept. 7. Here's a few thoughts on the game's battle royale mode and visuals...

The game mode was a standard battle royale last Man standing. We were only allowed to queue for solo. If you've played fortnite or are just familiar with the genre, you know how the game mode goes. Special abilities like high jumps or explosion arrows were locked to the weapons. Some armor dropped with camouflage specials which did seem like a major cheat mode.

The visuals on the other hand were out of this world. My game defaulted to epic settings causing a minor stutter, which was corrected by dropping shadows down. Playing on lowest graphic setting didn't hurt the visuals much at all, even looking better than other AAA games on max settings. Every element of the game looked beautiful. Plants to trees to water. The weapon effects...
