Storage points exist at warehouses within nodes and in chests (storage containers) that can be placed in freeholds and static in-node housing.[2][3]

  • Players must obtain and place storage containers in their player-owned housing.[3]
  • Different grades of storage containers have different inventory capacities.[3]
    • There are restrictions on the grades of storage containers available in different types of houses.[3]
  • Access permissions can be set to allow others to access a player's personal storage devices.[4][5]
    • Personal storage chests may be set to permit access by family or guild members.[4][6]
  • Warehouses may enable a player to transfer non-material goods between alts. This excludes resources, materials or anything that relies on the caravan system.[7]

Economy

Currency concept art.[8]

The economy is usually something that happens in the background of other games. From day one we knew that the economy was going to be something really important to us.[9]Jeffrey Bard

Markets in Ashes of Creation are regional, which means that each market has its own character. Because resources will shift locations as they’re exhausted, this will keep people moving about the world, seeking out the best resources for their crafting builds, and the best markets for their goods.[10]

One major feature in our economy that differs from most fantasy style MMOs is that we're not approaching it from a global scale. Rather, we're trying to carve the world up into regions and make each one focus independently, while of course at the same time working together.[15]Peter Pilone

Player inventory

Personal inventory limits[17][18] are tied to a backpack.[19] 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.[20][21]

  • Mules can carry roughly 10 times more than backpacks. Caravans can carry roughly 10 times more than mules.[22]
  • Caravans will have carrying capacity limits and customizable stats, such as defensive points, speed and number of hired NPC guards.[23]

Item stacks will in general have quantity limits based on the type of item.[20]

  • The stacking limit of potions might be one hundred. The stacking limit of food items might be 999 or 1000.[20]

Backpacks

A backpack is an item crafted by artisans that provides personal inventory space.[19]

  • The higher level the backpack, the greater the inventory space.
  • Different backpack types cater to different activities. For example:

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.[25]Steven Sharif

Player housing storage

Player housing provides an amount of storage.[26]

  • Access permissions can be set to allow others to access a player's personal storage devices.[5]
  • Personal storage chests may be set to permit access by family or guild members.[6]

Banking

Nodes advance to the first stage quickly. This enables NPC services such as vending or banking items.[27]

Account management

The account management page is used to assign or reassign crowdfunding items to specific characters:[28]

Mules

Mules are mounts that assist in the transport of goods, resources, and gatherables to increase a player's carrying capacity.[31] Mules transport goods on a much smaller scale than the caravan system.[32]

Caravans

Caravans facilitate the transfer of goods for players wishing to turn a profit.[34]

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.[34]

  • Caravans can transport goods for more than one player.[38]

Mailing items

Items and resources are not able to be mailed.[40][41]
