The abbreviation CC in Ashes of Creation may refer to:

Character creator

Scars in the Alpha-2 character creator (first pass).[6]

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.[1]Steven Sharif

We're gonna use similar tech for implementing things like Animal husbandry.[7]Zachary Mallet

Kaelar Alpha-2 character creation (first pass).[8]

This tech is 100% created in-house at Intrepid and is not metahuman.[9]Steven Sharif

We'll be adding many, many more customization options to the character creator.[10]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.[1][2]

The Ashes of Creation character creator is 100% developed in-house by Intrepid Studios and is not MetaHuman.[9]

Additional character creator features include.

  • There will be unlockable features for character customization.[14]
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.[14]Steven Sharif
  • The ability to save and potentially to share characters with other players.[6][15]
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.[6]Margaret Krohn
  • The ability to undo changes (Ctrl + Z) will be supported, including undoing changes that were made several edits earlier.[16][17]
  • Choosing base idle animations of characters will be possible in future.[18]
    • Certain animations, such as blinking, will be present when they don't interfere with the customization process.[19]
  • Adjusting the background scene and lighting is a planned feature.[19]
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.[20]Steven Sharif
  • Asymmetry in terms of manipulating different components of the body or different body features such as hair, beard, and eyes.[21]
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.[21]Steven Sharif
  • Body adornments, such as piercings will be possible within cultural limits.[22]
  • The developers are considering whether to allow custom tattoos to be uploaded by users.[23]

The aim is for the character creator to be on par if not much better than that of BDO.[24][25]

Crowd control

Crowd control (CC/mezzing) abilities include root, snare, stun, sleep and slow.[3][4]

  • CC effects do not apply to Non-combatant (green) players. The target of a CC ability must be flagged in order to suffer the CC effects. This prevents players from opening attacks that stun non-combatant players during a pull for example.[27]
  • Some crowd-control abilities can dismount a mounted player. In that case the mount would persist with its own health pool and other stats.[30]
    • In current Alpha-1 testing mounts are not separate from the player.[30]
There's also going to be effects that just stun the mount or stun you on the mount.[30]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.
Diminishing returns in regards to crowd control and conditions like stun and sleep and slows and that thing: Yes we will have absolutely diminishing returns. I think it's a necessary component to balance out classes that have high control ability.[4]Steven Sharif
We're trying to stay away from hard locks as much as we possibly can. We want to have the system be very play, counter-play, counter-counter-play feel.[4]Jeffrey Bard
  • Soft CC's are in the tab-targeted abilities.[37]
info-orange.pngThis section contains information from early testing phases. It will be updated as soon as new information is made available.
Skill Icon Base skill
Air Strike Air Strike New.png Leap a great distance forward and into the air while firing three projectiles in a line along the path, each dealing area damage and rooting targets hit for 3 seconds. Rotation control is enabled during cast.[38] The root effect is nature based.[39]
Ancestral Bolas Ancestral Bolas.png Throws a magical web of bolas at the target location. All enemies within are snared and build additional hate towards the tank every second. Enemies entering or exiting the radius will be tripped.[40]
Chain Lightning Chain Lightning Icon clean.png Release a powerful streak of lightning that hits your primary target and then chains outward to all nearby enemies from that target, dealing lightning damage and applying 3 stacks of Electrified to each target hit.[41][42][43]
Chains of Restraint Chains of Restraint Icon2.png Call forth spectral chains in a target area that stagger enemies within or stun enemies already under the staggered effect, then leave behind an area that deals radiant damage each second over 8 seconds.[44][45]
Condemn Condemn.png Stun target enemy for 3 seconds.[46][47]
Fissure Mage Spell 7.png Call forth a line of jagged earth spikes in front of the[sic] you, dealing earth damage and applying 10 stacks of Stagger to each enemy hit along its path while launching them upwards.[48]
Grapple Grapple Icon.png Takes aim for a moment before hurling a hooked chain in a line, damaging the first target it contacts and immediately pulling them to the caster. The target suffers a tapering snare for 3 seconds.[49][50]
Imbue Ammo: Weighted Imbue Ammo-Weighted.png Imbues your ammunition with weight. Enemies hit by your bow attacks suffer the Snared status effect, reducing their movement speed by 50%. Each application applies 3 seconds of duration to the target, up to a maximum of 12 seconds. 10 charges.[51]
Quake Quake.png Held ability: Cast a powerful earthquake that deals more damage the longer it was charged and applies 10 stacks of Staggered to all enemies around the caster. If the spell was fully charged, this applies Tripped instead of Staggered.[52]
Slam Slam.png Slam your target with immense force, knocking them back. Applies 10 stagger. Deals 500% additional threat.[53]
Slumber Slumber (Active).png Applies the sleeping condition to targets affected within a small area around the primary target, rendering them unable to move or take any action. Any damage dealt to a sleeping target will break the effect. Duration is reduced by 20% for each additional target hit, to a minimum of 40% of base duration.[54][55][56]
Tremoring Bellow TremoringBellowIcon.png Releases a thundering shout in a forward cone, applying the staggered condition on enemy targets. Also stomps the ground dealing damage around the caster and tripping enemies affected by the snared condition.[57]
