Skills

Primary skills (class abilities) are based on a player's archetype.[3] Players can personalize their primary skills with augmentation from a secondary archetype (secondary class).[3][4]

  • Choosing the same primary and secondary archetype increases focus on that archetype.[5]
  • Each skill in the primary tree has a minimum of four augment choices from the secondary tree.[6]
  • In terms of skill progression, players can choose to go "wide" and get a number of different abilities, or go "deep" into a few specific abilities.[7]
  • Changing the augmentations on your skills will require you to go to a NPC in a Village node or higher.[8]
  • Active skills could look totally different after an augment gets applied.[9]

You only get active skills from your primary class and that active skill could look totally different after an augment gets applied. It really depends on what the augment is.[9]Steven Sharif

Key for the augment system is that these augments are meant to demonstrate a core identity of the secondary class type you've chosen. So if from the eight archetypes whatever you choose as your secondary, you're going to receive a choice of augments that relate to some core ideal of that class. You know like a tank is about controlling the battlefield, is about surviving. The mage is about dealing damage and elements and ability in AoEs. The rogue is going to be about stealth and critical damage. So those augments are going to to play towards those identities.[10]Steven Sharif

The idea behind the system is that you're kind of skirting the line through these augmentations of your role, right. We have the traditional holy trinity that's present in class designs for MMOs and it's often that those either are not deviated at all or completely deviated from entirely. The augment is to kind of offer a balance between that where you still maintain the semblance of that trinity system while offering the opportunity to customize your play experience towards one of the other angles in the triangle.[11]Steven Sharif

Active skills

Players can build their characters with the active skills they want.[12]

  • Players are not given skills as they level up, they must choose what skills they take.[7]
  • The number of skills on the action bar will be contained (fewer than 30).[13]
  • For example: One Fighter will be different from another based on what active skills they have chosen.[13]
  • Through skill choice, players can customize their combat experience to focus on tab targeted skills, action targeted skills, or a mix of both.[14]
  • There is no spellbook requiring memorization.[15]

Skills and stats on gear

Crafters will be able to assign different skills/abilities and stats on armor.[16]

Not all armor sets will be the cookie cutter kind of set. They will have the influences from the crafter available in it, if it's a crafted set.[16]Steven Sharif

Weapon use ability

Example of keystroke time-frame, activated by using a weapon within the red area.

A weapon's most important feature is its weapon use ability (also referred to as quicktime bar, combo system or keystroke timeframe).[44]

  • Each weapon use ability has a unique keystroke time-frame that initiates upon weapon use.[44]
  • The precision system (hitting within the red area) activates the skill.[44]
  • The skill can then combo into other weapon use abilities.[44]
  • Hitting within the red area focuses energy into a player's ultimate skill.[44]

The weapon held in the main hand slot determines the active weapon ability.[45]

What we're implementing now are many different features to represent the system. Something that doesn't draw your attention away from the world or the center of your screen necessarily. Something that can work on a more of a visual cue and/or auditory cue. It's important to note what the objective of the combo system was. The objective was a vehicle to take weapon progression to implement skills that can be demonstrated to fuel a secondary energy type that's focused that players can spec into focus oriented skills and to provide a non mindless skill-based interaction with combat from a weapons standpoint. So with that being the focus you know we're going to implement ways to make that better received I think by players; and if it's not, if it is something that we are unable to achieve we're not going to ram it down our players throats. We're going to take it back to the drawing board.[46]Steven Sharif

Status

For Alpha-0, the weapon use ability that was shown at PAX West 2017 has been reduced to a basic form.[52]

It's got a little bit of a cadence to it: you can tap, you can generate focus; and so from here we'll look at ways in the future to take that and make it more interesting and more fun and more engaging.[52]Akil Hooper

A revised weapon use combo system may be present in phase 1 of Alpha-1.[53]

Combat abilities

The aspiration for combat is for abilities to have corresponding counter-play abilities.[54]

Crowd control

Crowd control (CC/mezzing) abilities include root, snare, stun, sleep and slow.[55][54]

Diminishing returns in regards to crowd control and conditions like stun and sleep and slows and that kind of thing: Yes we will have absolutely diminishing returns. I think it's a necessary component to balance out classes that have high control ability.[54]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 kind of feel.[54]Jeffrey Bard

Mobility

Very few abilities will require a player to remain stationary during combat.[67] Prone and crouch will likely not be in the game.[68]

Mobility is very important especially when it comes to ... seeing how the opposing player is doing something and then reacting to that fast enough so that you can get out of the way of it.[69]Jeffrey Bard

Combat targeting

Through skill choice, players can customize their combat experience to focus on tab targeted skills, action targeted skills, or a mix of both.[14]

  • It may not be possible to be able to fully spec into just action or tab targeted skills. There might be a 75% cap on choosing skills from any one type.[57]

Skill progressions, skill point allocation is determined by the player. The player will be able to choose either more tab-target oriented skills or more action-based skills and customize their playable experience to what accommodates their preference. From a balancing standpoint for us developers, we need to make sure that certain abilities house certain functions so that there's a balance between skill shots and tab-target abilities.[57]Steven Sharif

Action oriented and tab oriented versions of skills will have different characteristics. Variables will change based on which version is chosen.[77]

As an example: Let's say you're playing a ranged class. You could have an action-oriented power shot in your skill tree or you could have a single target power shot that ramps up and does more damage. [77]Steven Sharif

For the purposes of balance, certain skill types will be either tab or action oriented skills. For example:[78]

  • Hard Crowd control (CC)s may be housed in action oriented skills because they are skill shots that are more difficult to land.[78][57]
  • Softer CC's would be housed in tab-targeted abilities.[78]

Alpha-1 combat targeting

Alpha-1 development will focus on merging action targeted with tab targeted combat.[95]

There is a targeting reticle for action combat.[97]

  • There may be a hot key to toggle reticle mode on and off.[97]
  • Left mouse click is used for basic weapon attacks.[98]
  • Right mouse click is used as a "focus" button. It can also be used to activate root motion attacks for melee.[98]
  • Combat targeting uses hitbox registration in three separate regions: Upper body, lower body and head.[99]
  • Certain weapons and skills have ADS (Aim Down Sights) functionality.[100][21]

There will be aim down sights. You may have seen it that you can aim down sights on weapons; and there will be scopes on like crossbows and stuff that - arcane scopes - that you can use.[100]Steven Sharif

Some spells do have ADS. There's a long-range meteor blast that can be used from one of the spell books; and that has an arcane zoom in. It lets you zoom into a target.[21]Steven Sharif

Headshot mechanics

A headshot in action combat is equivalent to a critical hit in tab targeted combat.[101]

  • Players relying on tab skills will have a fixed critical hit chance every time they use an ability or weapon.[101]
  • Players using action-based skills are going to rely on getting a head shot or hitting a critical spot on the opponent.[101]

So if you take a look at like kind of what a head shot represents: A head shot is basically a critical hit; and players who are relying on tab skills will have that critical hit chance baked into their character. They will have that fixed chance every time they use an ability or use a spell or swing a weapon; and then somebody who is kind of preferring you know action based, in order to get that crit, they're not gonna be relying necessarily on their stats they're gonna be relying on whether they get a headshot or not, or are able to hit that critical spot on that character. So that's kind of the direction that we're going in that way. Again, it's gonna be hybridized so there's gonna be a little bit of both happening in both places.[101]Jeffrey Bard

Skills by archetype

Bard skills

Bards have engaging combat abilities, not just buffs.[106]

In other games, Bards tend to be a relatively passive kind of way of playing and that's really not the direction that we want to go with it. We want every class to be fun to play. We want every class to be viable. We want you to feel like you are doing something: That your moment-to-moment gameplay is fun; so a lot of that kind of stuff is going to be based on combos, on reactive interactions between your party members and the mob that you're fighting, or the player character that you're fighting. There's going to be a lot of movement from the front lines to the back lines to kind of help out and make sure that everybody is supported in the way that they're doing it; and that you are also being active in what you're doing. You're not just sitting in the back passively playing a lute and not having any fun.[108]Jeffrey Bard

Bard buffs are related to how they perform in combat.[109]

  • If a bard lands a skill shot against a target, allies within a certain range will be granted a temporary buff that relates to the skill that the bard used.[109]

Let's say the Bard is using a weapon, has a sword out and... does some gladiatorial looking performance attack and it looks so great. It inspires his friends around him to increase their multiplier on critical damage, and now they deal additional damage against targets for the next 10 seconds or 8 seconds. So, you're going to need to be active. You're going to worry about your position, the relation of the position of your party members to you in order to accentuate really what you offer the party.[109]Steven Sharif

Skill Rank 1 Rank 2 Rank 3
Stealth This does not render a player completely invisible. Instead, there will be indicators that can help players "feel out" where stealthed individuals may be.[130] - -

Summoner skills

The summoner uses many abilities that channel through their summon. The summoner is essentially playing through their summon.[131]

  • Abilities from the summon appear on the summoner's hotbar.[131]
  • Summoner has control over their summon.[131]
  • Summoners will likely not be able to fuse with their summons (eidolons).[132]
  • Summons can be leveled through the application of skill points to their active skill.[11]

You gain your summons from your summoner class as an active skill and then skills can be further developed with points.[11]Steven Sharif

Summoners summon different summons, depending on the class they choose.[133]

  • Animals.[133]
  • Spirits.[133]
  • Corpses (potentially).[133]
  • Some summoners may summon multiple things.[133]
  • Other summoners may only summon one powerful thing.[133]
  • Certain summoners may only be able to summon effects and/or temporary energies.[133]

Augments from a secondary archetype can be applied to a summons.[134]

For example: If your summon had a sweeping attack with a claw, or had the ability to bite an opponent, or rush an opponent; and you took teleportation, you could rush them similar to how I've given an example with the tank: Teleporting to a target instead. Or, its claws could combust on impact on a target dealing some burn damage that persists. Or... let's say your summon traditionally was some type of bear or bear cat, you could apply an elemental augment and now it could be a transparent flaming bioluminescent cat; and its damage would be fire based. So, that's how we want to influence the active skills with how augments apply; and that's how it would apply with Summoners.[134]Steven Sharif

Tank skills

Tanks will not be forced to have a shield but it will definitely be a viable option.[135]Jeffrey Bard

Ultimate defense skill Ultimate ability: Uses focus to increase your physical and magical defenses as well as immobilizing you.[105] Receive increased healing from outside sources while active.[105] Breaks crowd control on cast and grants invulnerability to crowd control.[105]

Elemental skills

The idea behind magic is you're manipulating the elements. They don't just have to be fire, ice, water and air. They can be darkness, they can be light, they can be planar; a lot of different types of "elemental influences". But, say for instance, I am a Ranger that has a Charge bolt ability as my primary active skill and I've chosen Mage as my secondary and applied the elemental to it. I now have a Frost charge bolt, and if I fire that frostbolt and hit a target, they may be freezing for a period of time as a debuff and that might slow their speed. If a wizard applies a nuke on a target and that nuke is a frost-based nuke, those two stacking elements might then either further snare (slow the target) or paralyze and freeze the target. So, there are combination out effects that build up: A primary, secondary and some ancillary effect occurs when those are combined.[139]Steven Sharif

Siege abilities

Eight players of the same primary archetype can band together to create monumental effects during a siege.[140]

These are the types of systems that we want to put in place where groups of a single primary archetype can come together to summon these types of effects that play off of what the identity of that archetype is.[140]Steven Sharif

Summoner

Summoners can collaborate to summon larger summons, such as Golems.[131]

  • A siege summon will have an incremental size based on the number of summoners participating in that summon activity, with a maximum of eight.[141]
  • The number of summoners participating in the summon will determine its overall size.[141]
  • All summoners must be in the same party and the party leader must be a summoner.[142]
    • The party leader initiates the summon and then takes control of it.
    • Once summoned, the party leader cannot be changed.
    • If the party disbands, the summon ends. There will be a grace period to handle disconnects.
    • The party may also contain non-Summoners.

It doesn't have to be just summoners, but it has to be a party led by a summoner with other summoners in it.[142]Steven Sharif

Tank

If eight Tank archetypes each use one of their summon wall abilities it might construct a larger wall that can divide two raids in a moment; and would require damage and block skills and abilities for a momentary lapse of battle between those two raids.[140]Steven Sharif

Guns and gunpowder

Gunpowder (black powder) weapons will not be present in Ashes of Creation.[144]

Weaponry such as Potion launchers, Siege weapons and weapons used in Naval combat are based on the arcane arts.[145]

As we said in the past, were not really about that black powder life. Instead it's really going to be focused on the arcane arts: The elements; the use of radiance and darkness; and then those being employed in larger weaponry, such as the type of siege weaponry between ship battles as well as those and sieges. A potion launcher is an example of the arcane energies that can be mastered in order to facilitate these highly destructive alchemical blends that can be created.[145]Steven Sharif

Utility skills

A utility skill is a non-combat skill that interacts with the environment.[147] Utility skills lend themselves toward how classes navigate and deal with hazards in the world.[148]

  • Different classes excel at different skills.[148]
  • All classes will have maneuverability/traversal utility abilities.[149]
    • There will be a grappling hook utility skill or item.[150]
  • Classes will have utility abilities, such as detecting traps and other hazards. For example: The Mage's detection spell casts light and reveals magical explosive hazards.[124]
  • Certain classes are able to climb/parkour in certain areas.[151][152]
    • Climbing ability is not free-form.[153]
  • Certain classes (such as Rogues) will have stealth abilities.[154]
    • Rouges may also have a spyglass utility skill.[148]

We don't just have the approach of your class being reflected in your combat abilities but also there are utility abilities that certain classes have that other classes don't have.[155]Steven Sharif

Skill transfer

Players will not be able to transfer their skills to other players.[156]

All Kickstarter backers will receive a skill effects (FX) set.[157]

  • Includes unique colors and additional effects for certain skills. For example: A mage with her fireball skill may fire off a ball of searing white flames as opposed to the traditional colors of that skill.

Mentor program

There will be a mentorship program where upper-level players are able to benefit from partying and/or helping lower level players; and getting them situated in the game.[158]

There will be activities that are present for higher level players to mentor lower level players. Let's say you have a friend who joins later on and you still want to do things with them, there will be things to do. Will you he be able to enter a dungeon of your level and participate? No, because we don't want to inflate or deflate characters and manipulate that type of skill or power. We want that to be something that makes sense for them in a progression standpoint.[159]Steven Sharif
