  • Cosmetic skins.[2]
  • Het verplaatsen van items tussen characters, waar ze alleen toe te passen zijn op een character per keer.[3]

Account transfers

Intrepid Studios will announce the migration steps for moving a My.games account to Intrepid Studios over the coming weeks. All purchases and achievements will be preserved.[4]

Server reservations

Server reservations allow guild members as well as unaffiliated players to reserve character slots on a server starting in the Beta testing stages of the game.[5]

This would likely be utilized more so by guilds than that would be solo or unaffiliated players; and I believe that the solo player they may have friends that they want to play with. That's fine, they can also still with those friends do the reservation system, but the player who is just joining the game fresh and doesn't have a community that they're part of, I don't think they really mind in that regard and will not utilize that system.[5]Steven Sharif

Server transfers

Server transfers will not be possible initially. The developers intend to assess the impact on housing and other systems closer to launch.[6]

Name reservation

Name reservations were rewards for backing at the Pioneer level and higher and are currently available through the Voyager plus pre-order pack.[7][8]

  • Accounts will have name reservation tokens, that entitle its holder to reserve a name on a specific server when the reservation time comes.[6]

Name reservation priority

Name reservations will be allocated from the highest backer tier to the lowest backer tier.[9]

  1. Kickstarter backer tiers, highest to lowest.[10]
  2. Summer crowdfunding backer tiers, highest to lowest.[10]
  3. Pre-order packs purchased from the web store.[10]

Within each tier, the name reservations are on a first-come-first-served basis.[10]

Name reservation availability

Name reservations will begin during Alpha-1.[11]

Multi-boxing

The current policy on multi-boxing (multi client) is that players are allowed to own multiple accounts, but may not launch multiple game clients from the same computer. Players may not use any software to automate character actions or mimic keystrokes.[12][13]

  • This was previously stated to be: If a user has a legitimate account and is not botting or using complex scripting then multi-boxing will be permitted.[14][15][16][17]

Multiple accounts and multi-boxing, that's a little bit difficult for me because it could be conceived as pay-to-win, because you can progress on a second character and you can then gift that progression to your primary character. In that scenario yes I can see the argument. However if the character progresses with the same amount of effort and time needed by the person who's playing and they maintain that progression on that character, then I don't consider it pay-to-win. I consider it a second account. So initially what I'm going to say is having multi-boxing capability will be allowed within Ashes of Creation. There are a few safety nets that I put in place that kind of restrict the ability for abuses that we've seen in other games.[16]Steven Sharif

Crowdfunding mounts

Kickstarter/Summer crowdfunding mount beloningen worden op deze manieren uitgegeven en gebruikt door backers die hier recht op hebben:[2]

  1. Basismounts worden verkregen na een beginner quest die beschikbaar is voor alle spelers in de startgebieden.
  2. In de account management pagina wijzen spelers cosmetic skins toe aan een character in hun account.
  3. Deze skins kunnen vervolgens worden aangebracht om het uiterlijk van de in het spel verkregen mount te wijzigen.
    • Dit verwijderd de skin niet. Het kan alsnog in de toekomst toegepast worden op een andere passende mount.
    • Spelers kunnen de skin van het ene character verwijderen en aan een andere character toewijzen.
    • Skins kunnen alleen actief zijn op een character en een mount.

De Dawnbreaker mount skin wordt in eenzelfde manier gebruikt, maar is alleen toewijsbaar aan een bepaalde klasse mount. Aquatische mount skins, zoals de Tidesnapper, worden ook op eenzelfde manier gebruikt, maar zijn alleen toewijsbaar aan de aquatische mountklasse.[2]

Gear binding

There may be some gear binding (BoE or BoP) but it will be an exception rather than the rule, as this doesn't facilitate the objectives for the economy.[18]

A lot of what we experienced in games that usually come before us is that many things are account bound and they're soulbound to your character... Instead very little here is character bound. Very very little. The vast majority of gear- yes you will get quest related gear as rewards- but it won't be let's say one set in one dungeon and you must run the dungeon over and over. Instead we want to really emphasize the reliance on the economy and crafters and gatherers and processors to support a majority of the gear structure in-game, combined with that of world raid bosses and dungeon bosses; not a repetitive quest line through a single dungeon.[20]Steven Sharif
