Personal inventory limits[2][3] are tied to a backpack.[4] Material and gatherable items are subject to quantity rather than weight limits. Caravans and Mules are intended to be the primary mode of transportation of goods beyond these limits.[5][6]

  • Mules can carry roughly 10 times more than backpacks. Caravans can carry roughly 10 times more than mules.[7]
  • Caravans will have carrying capacity limits and customizable stats, such as defensive points, speed and number of hired NPC guards.[8]
    • In addition to expanded inventory capacity, caravans also provide ancillary benefits relating to successfully completing trade routes and other quests.[9]

Inventory capacity will be relatively limited for new characters.[9]

  • Inventory expansion and weight management training certificates are available in the Galleria at City stage economic nodes.[9][10]
  • A player's inventory has sections for different types of items. Quest items for example will not fill a player's regular inventory capacity.[9]

Item stacks will in general have quantity limits based on the type of item.[5]

  • The stacking limit of potions might be one hundred. The stacking limit of food items might be 999 or 1000.[5]

A backpack is an item crafted by artisans that provides personal inventory space.[4]

In order to roleplay 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 backpack that you know can plug in certain types of props or items that are created by the character team.[11]Steven Sharif

Storage

Storage points exist at warehouses within nodes and in chests (storage containers) that can be placed in freeholds and static in-node housing.[13][14]

Player housing storage

Chests are a type of furniture that provides localized storage within a specific house.[16][14][17]

Banking

Nodes advance to the first stage quickly. This enables NPC services such as vending or banking items.[25]

Account management

Ashes of Creation web site design preview (WIP).[27]

Cosmetics can be reassigned to other characters (alts) within an account but can only be active on one character at a time.[28][29][30]

  • There will likely be a cooldown for reassigning cosmetics between characters.[28]

Mules

Mules are mounts that assist in the transport of goods, resources, and gatherables to increase a player's carrying capacity.[32] Mules transport goods on a much smaller scale than the caravan system.[33]

Caravans

Caravans facilitate the transfer of goods for players wishing to turn a profit.[35]

The caravan system is an open world PvP system that revolves around opportunity and risk. Caravans facilitate the transfer of goods for players wishing to turn a profit.[35]

  • Caravans can transport goods for more than one player.[39]

Death penalties do not apply to objective-based events (such as caravans, guild wars, and node sieges).[41]

Personal caravan initiation

Personal caravans can be launched from any point of storage.[23]

Mailing items

Social messages sent via mail will be received instantly.[44]

From an item standpoint obviously we can't allow mailing to include any type of resource material or raw gatherable because those are central to the gameplay and transiting through the caravan system and economic regions. But it may be possible to send completed crafted items like you know gear, equipment, stuff like that. But it's something we're still discussing.[44]Steven Sharif

Purchases of anything other than materials and gatherables from integrated auction houses will be mailed to the purchaser.[47]
