Gear binding

Jump to navigation Jump to search

There may be some gear binding (BoE or BoP) but it will be an exception rather than the rule, as this doesn't facilitate the objectives for the economy.[1]

A lot of what we experienced in games that usually come before us is that many things are account bound and they're soulbound to your character... Instead very little here is character bound. Very very little. The vast majority of gear- yes you will get quest related gear as rewards- but it won't be let's say one set in one dungeon and you must run the dungeon over and over. Instead we want to really emphasize the reliance on the economy and crafters and gatherers and processors to support a majority of the gear structure in-game, combined with that of world raid bosses and dungeon bosses; not a repetitive quest line through a single dungeon.[3]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic items

All cosmetic store items will be non-tradeable.[4]

Transferring cosmetics to alts

Ashes of Creation web site design preview (WIP).[7]

Cosmetics can be reassigned to other characters (alts) within an account but can only be active on one character at a time.[5][8][9]

  • There will likely be a cooldown for reassigning cosmetics between characters.[5]


Repetition will not be part of progression in Ashes of Creation.[11]

  • There will be no "grindy" quests.[11]
  • There will not be repetitive quest lines through a single dungeon to obtain gear.[3]
  • The aspiration is to have more things to do in the game than a player has time to do.[11]
