    • Players may choose to show or hide items in their back slot.[6]
  • There will be capes (cloaks) with hoods.[7]
    • All hoods, whether part of a complete costume or individual gear, will have the option to be shown or hidden on the character by the player.[8]

Items on back and belt

Backpack sockets (slots).[9]

The idea is to kind of move away from the mundane kind of application of belts in previous MMOs where they don't really have a lot of character so to speak. But in reality you know as an adventurer you come with a lot of tools and things that you have to use out in the wild in order to achieve what you're trying to achieve. So we wanted to kind of represent that on your character and give you something that can actually be tangible for your character and see there. I think it adds a lot of character and flavor to your identity.[10]Steven Sharif

This belt has like my material components for spell casting so I definitely feel like I'm a witch right now.[11]Steven Sharif

Items attached to a character's back or belt represent items they are in possession of. Players can set the appearance priority for the items they wish to show.[12][13][14] Only one item can show at a time, and that is determined by player choice.[15]

A big component of the MMORPG that - half of that you know acronym is RPG role-playing game. And in order to role-play you need to be able to represent kind of what your character is doing in that world and you know part of what animation is doing is creating these sockets on the let's say the belt or the back that you know can plug in certain types of props or items that are created by the character team, like Carson, you know might be a scroll tube, it might be a potion, it might be whatever: Those players will have the ability as we've discussed in the past will have the ability to select what they want to be represented in those sockets and then animation will make sure that jibe well in movement.[9]Steven Sharif

Back slots include.[15]

Belt (hip) slots include.[12][15]

There'll be a priority system behind that that'll determine... do I show the Bow if the Greatsword is unequipped or do I show the Polearm if the Greatsword is unequipped.[14]Jeffrey Bard

Gear slots

There are 16 gear slots in Ashes of Creation:[17]


Import of user-created image content (UCC) is being considered.[19] This was previously not under consideration.[20]

  • An active GM staff will be monitoring user-created content. Users who upload inappropriate content will place their accounts in jeopardy.[21]

I know previously we had spoken about not allowing custom user images in the game, however I think we're leaning more now in the direction of allowing for custom user images. Absolutely well what it will be is the fact that we're a subscription game and if you want to jeopardize your account by doing the wrong thing with regards to custom users [images] then by all means you may do so and we'll have stringent practices in place to prevent that from actually being an issue.[19]Steven Sharif

With regards to this UCC question, I think when you have an active an active GM team that you know you are you have directed to care take the product you're going to mitigate a lot of that functionality you don't want to see out of this custom image system. People who look to let's say meme the system are going to be met with the type of enforcement that they don't want to have on their account; and being a subscription-based product and being a risk versus reward and maybe a more old-school approach to character development and progression I think they're gonna take a significant risk in doing things that we don't want them to do, which will result in the jeopardy of their account. So I think that is not going to deter a hundred percent of things- I don't think you ever can deter a hundred percent of things unless we go away from custom images- but I think that we can achieve some parity of essentially enforcement versus infraction ratio that's going to be liveable for everybody.[21]Steven Sharif

The user interface will allow emblems, logos and symbols to be designed in-game.[20][22][23]

Emblem editor functionality is tentatively planned for Alpha-2.[23]

Crowdfunding guild rewards

Guild themed character cloaks were cosmetic rewards for backing at the Leader of Men level or higher in the Kickstarter and Summer crowdfunding campaigns.[25]

Kickstarter/Summer crowdfunding guild rewards[26] are assigned to a guild by the owner of the reward.[27]

  • Once assigned, the reward becomes an asset of that guild.
  • Guild members that leave the guild no longer have access to the unique items of that guild.
