Mounts are obtained through an early quest that is available to players in starting areas.[1]

We kind of want mounts to be ubiquitous for people.[8]Peter Pilone

There are going to be classes of mounts; and you will be able to achieve skins in the game or you will be able to achieve different types of those classes and summon them.[5]Steven Sharif

We won't have mounted combat, but we will have mounted abilities.[7]

Mount abilities and stats

Mounts will have different core attributes and stats.[9]

Mounted combat

Certain mounts will have combat abilities.[12]

  • Players can't use their class skills while mounted.[12]
  • Mounts can be killed by players, but can be resurrected.[13]

Dragon abilities

Dragons are epic flying mounts with strong battle abilities, such as AoE breath attacks, swooping flyby attacks, and others.[14][5]

The dragon will have a lot of capability in PvP. It's primarily its purpose, because as it relates to Castles and the sieges they're in, or Nodes and the sieges they're in. We want dragons to have large scale ramifications against player raids.[5]Steven Sharif

Summoning mounts

Mounts are items that players carry then activate to summon the mount nearby.[7]Steven Sharif

Mounts are going to be items that you will be able to carry on your character and activate to summon the mount in front of you or near you; where you can then ride the mount.'[7]Steven Sharif

Land mounts

Land mounts (Ground mounts) are tier 1[4] mounts that are obtained through an early quest that is available to players in starting areas.[1]

Flying mounts (Royal mounts)

Royal mounts are a tier 3[4] class of mounts available to Mayors of metropolis nodes and Kings and Queens of Guild castles. Royal mounts can also be dropped from legendary world bosses.[5]

Generally flying is not something that we're going to be doing in this game and there's a lot of reasons for that: Some of it is economic, some of it is ... you create this really great looking world and we don't want you flying over all the time.[20]Jeffrey Bard

There are different types of royal mounts.[5]

Dragons are a class of these royal mounts. You can get different types of royal mounts. They don't have to be dragons. They could be some other type of legendary mythical creature... It will be an epic looking large-scale creature and people will notice you and it while you are approaching.[5]Steven Sharif


The guild leader of a castle can grant the use of flying undermounts (such as wyrmlings) to guild officers during a castle siege.[22][23][24]

  • These may only be granted if the castle nodes are successfully established prior to the siege.[24]
    • Node A grants 1 undermount, Node B grants 2 undermounts, and Node C grants 2 undermounts.[25]
  • This system is subject to change during testing.[25]

Little wyrmlings that you can grant to officers if you're a castle owner, and they can fly around too.[22]Steven Sharif

Gliding mounts

Gliding mounts are tier 2[4] winged mounts that jump/glide/hover close to the ground.[26] Unlike royal (tier 3) mounts, gliding mounts are not capable of true flight.[20]

  • Certain tier 2 mount skins can be upgraded to tier 3 skins if they also apply to royal mounts.[4]

Aquatic mounts

Aquatic mounts are able to be obtained from taming underwater creatures.[28]

Crowdfunding mounts

Kickstarter/Summer crowdfunding mount beloningen worden op deze manieren uitgegeven en gebruikt door backers die hier recht op hebben:[1]

  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.[1]

Mount barding

Mount barding cosmetic reward for backing at the Leader of Men level.[29]

Mount barding is a cosmetic for mounts in Ashes of Creation.[30]

Racial mounts

Each race has a unique mount.[2]

Group mounts

Multi-passenger group mounts were unlocked during the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.[31][32]

Mount drops

Mounts and pets are dropped by world bosses on a very rare basis.[33]

Temporary mounts

Temporary mounts that drop from bosses will age and eventually die.[34]

Naming mounts

Mounts and pets are able to be named by players.[35]

Animal husbandry

AshesOfCreation ProductionArt 029.jpg

Animal husbandry is a profession within the processing artisan class.[36]

Many animals that can be tamed and bred through the animal husbandry profession can be found in herds across the lands of Verra. These herds represent a gatherable resource, of sorts, that masters of the animal husbandry profession may then use to discover lesser-known species variants with untold powers and abilities. Mounts play a large role in Ashes of Creation, and animals like the horse are an early gateway into the unlimited possibilities that await those skilled in the arts of husbandry.[37]

Breeding mechanics

Gryphon concept art.[39]

These are some concept iterations of exactly how the animal husbandry profession's going to work as you create the offspring of different combinations of animals and you find and discover types of mounts. For example this Gryphon: You will have the ability to open up an in-game character customization screen for the animals; and you'll be able to use certain dials to touch different aesthetic aspects of the actual animal's features: On its wings, on its head, its beak, its armor that's going to be present; the claws and talons. You will be able to actually make a unique representation of this mount, so you're just not a cookie cutter like everybody else.[40]Steven Sharif

Animal husbandry will have discoverable blends of breeding.[41]

  • Rare creatures can be captured and tamed to breed animals with specific traits.[42]
  • Special mounts such as Dragons are not breedable.[43]
  • Breeding will change the stats of the mount that is being bred.[44]
  • There is a form of genetics, but it won't be complex.[45] Genetic lines react to the type of mount or creature that has been captured or tamed.[38]

Animal husbandry and taming create unique mounts with unique abilities and stats.[7]

Animal husbandry involves a tree of its own that players get to discover via what pairings they choose... That's going to be a pretty fun aspect of creating rare mounts that haven't been seen in the world.[45]Steven Sharif

There are stages of development within breeding.[46]

  • Youngling stage: For mammals this relates to baby animals. For lizards (reptiles) this is an egg stage.[46]

A modified character creation system allows customization of Summoner pets and Animal husbandry.[40][46]

  • Changes at the Youngling stage affect the appearance of the animal at adulthood.[46]
  • During the Youngling stage there may also be quests for specific types of cosmetic features.[46]

There is a compendium of acceptable parameters for breeding, which isn't going to be known until players discover it.[47]

  • This discovery may be different for different players.[47]
  • Trial and error and exploration and discovery of certain breeding habits and different quests may grant access to slots in the compendium.[47]
    • This may grant access to specific types of mounts.[47]

There's definitely going to be odd combinations, whether it's a butterflyger, giraffealope I don't know, but there will be definitely caps that are present.[47]Steven Sharif


Stables in Ashes of Creation refer to:

Royal stables

Royal stables are a type of building in Ashes of Creation.[5]

  • Castles come with a royal stables.[5]
  • Mayors can choose to build royal stables within their node. Once chosen, the community will need to build the stables through quests.[5]
  • Royal mounts must be mounted in a royal stables in order to fly.[5]

The royal mounts will be the only class of mounts that can fully fly in the world; and they are will be needed to be mounted while in a royal stables. Royal stables are a building that can be built in a node if elected to be built by the mayor and supported by the community building it up through the quests to do so; and castles come with a royal stable as well. So once you have a royal stable and you become that Mayor or King or Queen, you may then mount the creature there and then take it wherever you wish.[5]Steven Sharif

Faster travel

Faster travel in Ashes of Creation refers to.[50]

Even though there's not fast travel, there is faster travel. So you know mount ridden. There will be connection points between certain nodes via the use of like flying automated creatures that you can use. Stuff like that.[50]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic store

The Cosmetic store enables players to purchase Cosmetics for use in Ashes of Creation.[53]

We plan to include a shop for micro transactions. The shop will only include cosmetic items. Nothing in our shop will ever be pay to win as we believe this practice greatly hurts the MMORPG genre.[55]

All cosmetic store items will be non-tradeable.[57] There will be no gifting mechanism for cosmetic items.[58]

I don't want cosmetic items that can be purchased from the marketplace to be transferable... because it is in a way a transfer of money for potentially something in-game.[58]Steven Sharif

The cosmetic store will offer limited time, limited quantity items to help sustain game development.[59]

  • Equitable cosmetics, both from a quantity and quality standpoint, are achievable through in-game means.[59]

I want to incentivize purchase in the cosmetic shop for sustainability of what expansions we have intended, since we are not a box cost. I want to incentivize purchase by offering limited items: limited time, limited quantity, so you have confidence that when you purchase them, they won't be offered later on in some other way.[59]Steven Sharif
