Currency

In-game currency is referred to as "gold".[2] This may be a placeholder name.

  • Game currency does not have weight.[3]

Embers

Embers are in-game marketplace credits in Ashes of Creation.[4]

Referral program

Players who refer and invite new players can receive 15% of their account purchases back as Intrepid Bucks. Intrepid Bucks can then be used to reduce subscription fees, obtain unique virtual items or receive cash rewards.[5]

Looting

Ashes of Creation intends to use traditional loot rules, selected by the party leader.[6]

Lootmaster
A master looter (or lootmaster) is a player designated by the party leader to decide how loot is distributed in a dungeon or raid party.
Round-robin
With round-robin looting, party members take turns looting.
Need before greed
This is a traditional need before greed system based on dice rolls.
Bidding system
Intrepid are investigating a potential bidding system, which allows players to bid on items instead of rolling for them.[6]
  • The highest bidder wins the item.
  • The gold then goes into a pool that is split among the rest of the party members.

Subscription payment

In-game currency will not be able to be used to purchase subscription time. This may change in the future.[7]

We want to make sure that there's no "interactability" between any type of pay-to-win scenario where our players can exchange those in-game types of currencies to pay for subscriptions.[7]Steven Sharif

Item rendering

In-game rendering of dropped items (such as Gear and Currency) is not a planned feature.[8]

Security systems

Security systems will be in place to combat cheating, exploiting, botting, gold selling, item duplication and other things that affect the economy starting from Alpha-0.[9][10][11]

  • These systems collect user data and flag abnormal activities for inspection. This combined with player reporting functions generates a live "heat map" that draws attention to unusual behavior.[11]
  • Players caught cheating will be banned.[11]
