Players will be rewarded for exploring.[2]

We want to put things in the world that are dynamic; so there are reasons to keep going out and keep exploring.[3]

It will be easy to get lost in Ashes of Creation.[4]

It'll be easy for you to get lost in AoC. That is our goal from an exploration standpoint.[4]Steven Sharif

Landmarks

200 foot tall Pyrian statues in Alpha-1.[5]

Landmarks are scattered throughout the world, allowing players to judge their position on the map.[5]

From a lore perspective these statues have been around for a long time; and they are representative of the civilizations that existed once on this world before.[5]Steven Sharif

Major visual landmarks. You can look all the way across the horizon have an idea where you're going or where to meet friends or where to meet just based on these huge landmarks in the world.[5]Mat Broome

Chasse au Trésor

Chasse au Trésor is not exactly "cartography", but it does involve maps that help to pinpoint the location of hidden treasures throughout the world.[6][7][8]

  • The more treasure a player finds the better maps they can create.[8]
  • Hints are given through rumor mills, interaction with different PNJs, and gaining access to potential dig sites.[8]
  • Treasure hunting will be a "way of life" rather than a profession.[7]

Treasures may also be obtained through fishing and by exploring naval content.[9][10]

Nœuds côtiers

Il existera des Nœuds le long de la côte et dans des archipels.[12]

  • Ces nœuds auront des compétences, services et influences maritimes, ainsi que des Quêtes, qui seront liées à la mer.[12]
  • Les nœuds côtiers changeront les tables d'apparitions du contenu maritime alentour et pourront déclencher des Evénements spécifiques.[13]
  • Les ports à l'intérieur des nœuds côtiers auront des suites de quêtes liées à l'océan et aux îles proches.[13]
  • Il sera peut-être possible d'assiéger une ville côtière par la mer.[14]

Les archipels font partie du contenu naval dans Ashes of Creation.[15][16]

Contenu adaptatif

pasted image at 2017 10 26 07 13 pm.png

Des nouveaux points d'intérêt (tel que des donjons et des Bosses d'extérieur) apparaissent à mesure que les Nœuds avancent.[3] Le contenu s'adapte au développement de la zone dans lequel il se trouve.[17]

  • Les Populations changeront.[17]
  • La difficulté du contenu changera.[17]
  • Le contenu lui-même peut être complètement différent, selon ce qui est développé et comment.[17]
  • Différents types d'adversaires avec différentes histoires.[17]
  • Certains donjons ne se déverrouilleront que si les nœuds sont développés jusqu'à certaines étapes.[18]
  • Les objectifs d'histoires pour les joueurs à l'intérieur d'un donjon dépendront des chemins narratifs choisis à travers le système de nœud.[18]
  • Les Tables de butins dans les zones et dans les donjons seront liées à la progression dans certaines zones.[18]

Certains donjons et autres points d'intérêt sur la carte vont être affectés par le développement des nœuds sur le serveur. Certains donjons ne seront déverrouillés que si les nœuds sont développés jusqu'à certaines étapes. Les objectifs d'histoires pour les joueurs à l'intérieur d'un donjon dépendront des chemins narratifs choisis à travers le système de nœud. Les Tables de butins dans les zones et dans les donjons seront liées à la progression dans certaines zones. Par exemple, admettons que les humains aient développé un nœud dans la Région A, et une histoire s'est ouverte et dirige les joueurs pour qu'ils inspectent les ruines (donjon) d'une zone proche. Et admettons que ce nœud se soit développé en tant que nœud scientifique (artisanat)… Eh bien avant que ce nœud ait été développé, ce donjon était accessible… Mais maintenant le donjon a propagé des nouveaux objets et monstres qui incluent des tables de butin qui répondront à des besoins d'artisanat grâce au développement de ce nœud scientifique. Et peut être qu'un nouveau boss apparaîtra dans différentes pièces du donjon qui inclura des différents départs de quêtes et d'aventures, comme un objet mystérieux avec une histoire propre qui ne peut être avancée que si un nœud s'est développé jusqu'au statut de métropole dans certaines régions, à travers la planète. Notre système est tellement vaste, quand il s'agit d'interconnectivité et de la manière dont le monde réagit aux joueurs.[18]

Corrupted areas

Work-in-progress Alpha-1 preview corrupted area on Alpha island by Mia DelCasino.[19]

How the world kind of reacts and changes to the nodes, you see these intrusions of corruption beginning to pervert and infest the lands; and these are obviously going to be sources by which NPC events are driven based on player progression within the world. And these sources of evil need to be addressed by the players, or else they'll grow out of hand.[20]Steven Sharif

All of our POIs and kind of just the world in general can react to the node- we don't have to but we can- and this is one of those places where as civilization grows this will grow kind of in contest with it.[19]Jeffrey Bard

Corrupted areas (zones/points of interest) can dynamically evolve with the progression of nodes.[20][19]

  • Harbingers that exist on Verra as dungeons are where The Ancients are capable of pushing into the material plane. They can continue to do so under the guise of the effects of corruption as it spreads.[21]
  • These are sources of NPC events that players need to address before they grow out of hand.[22][20]
    • Players need to participate in these events to stop the spread of corruption and hold back the intrusion on the material plane.[21]
    • If players fail to address these corrupted areas, the frequency of NPC events against their node will increase. These can lead to node buildings and services being disabled, increasing the node's vulnerability to node sieges.[23]
    It can be a very detrimental thing if corruption is not addressed; and that's the intent of corruption, is to present a challenge to the players that if not addressed it becomes exacerbated and a problem over time.[23]Steven Sharif
  • Corrupted areas do not confer corruption onto a player.[24]

There are certain things that can happen, such as the spawning of dragons or hordes of zombies that are going to come out and attack those installations, those nodes, those points of interest; and... communities that don't respond to those in an effective way might see the disabling of certain services, the reduction of certain quest lines for particular organizations. The idea is to keep this as part of a believable living response from world, so those can get pretty significant the bad effects that can happen for the community.[22]Steven Sharif

Player driven narrative

The world of Verra will be the same on each server, but Nœuds will develop differently. Different servers will have different narratives. Things that happen on one server may not happen on another.[25]

We want as many people as possible to experience the main server Narrative. These will branch at different scales, but largely at the personal level. Where things change is at the Node level – different parts of the story will be unlocked based on where and when Nodes grow. Unlocking a part of the story in a certain way locks out progression of the story in a different way. You’ll see different antagonists, different NPCs, and different calls to action depending on what’s happening with the server at that time.[27]

It kind of redefines what the players will experience in an MMORPG to come into a wilderness that is devoid of really any structure outside of what the community creates themselves; and then what can be created can be changed, if they want to experience a storyline that's been seen on another server, but you know you're fighting a dragon because you're near a mountain and the other server's fighting a Kraken because they're near the coast and you want to fight that Kraken because of its drop table. If you want to meta it or because you just want that under your belt: to be the server first to take out that Kraken and you have yet to develop the node there, you know it's incumbent upon you to manifest that in the game.[28]Steven Sharif

Server history

L'histoire de chaque serveur sera suivie et visible par les joueurs.[29]

Nous allons garder la trace de l'histoire du monde afin de pouvoir raconter aux gens le récit jusqu'à ce jour. Un tout nouveau joueur, qui arrive après six mois, peut jeter un œil à chaque serveur, ce que chaque serveur a réalisé, comment le serveur a abordé l'intrigue ; et ils peuvent décider par eux-mêmes quelle communauté ils veulent rejoindre, à quelle version du monde ils veulent prendre part.[29]Jeffrey Bard

Libraries

At Village (organiser 3) the scientific node's unique building is the Bibliothèque. Players can use the Library to access information, including (but not limited to) the following:[30]

Reports of information to the library may expire after a period of time (say one week). After which new reports will be required to update the existing information.[31]

You'll get that shroud of war functionality for the week after a report but if it doesn't receive a follow-up report after that expiration period then it will not be updating real time.[31]Steven Sharif

Legendary items

There is a small RNG chance of looting rare and legendary items or crafting materials from mobs based on the level, status and type of mob. This also applies to harvesting resources with a gathering profession.[32]

At each stage from Gatherer to Processor to Crafter you are required to have certain prerequisites before those elite types of materials can be essentially gathered, processed, or crafted.[34]Steven Sharif

The amount of effort needed and interdependencies across the different types of players – between raiders and PvPers and crafters and even role players and the taverns and businesses: the processors and gatherers – all of those systems will likely have a component that lends toward creating or crafting that legendary item... We want to stay away from the highly RNGd system, and instead take our multiple progression paths that we are offering the players and put the construction components for achieving these legendary items within them so it encourages communities to work together because it's going to be difficult for just one person by themselves to gather everything. Not to say that they couldn't in an economic sense, by buying those components, that's possible. But achieving them from a time investment standpoint we want it to be considerably less RNG focussed.[35]Steven Sharif

Certain legendary items may be limited to one per server at any given time.[38][39]

  • If the player character leaves the server then the item will become available for acquisition through whatever means it was acquired previously.[38]

There are absolutely legendary items and they're not items that are attained easily nor are they granted out in a volume. There might even be items that are single items that will exist on the server at any given time.[39]

A legendary weapon is easily distinguished by its visual appearance.[35]

It will be a very ornate and detailed weapon, more so than any other weapon or piece of equipment in the game. It will also include some awesome looking effects that won't too gaudy, you know they won't be too bright and shiny so that it doesn't look good, but they will be subtle and people will notice it and know wow that guy has this weapon.[35]Steven Sharif

Legendary items are not intended to be temporary.[40]

The fact there is only one of them... or very very few of them depending on what it is. I think that in and of itself is a balance component right and you need to make sure that the players who are striving for those legendary things and who are devoting the time energy, resources in order to achieve them are accurately rewarded... We do not intend on having legendary items that are temporary.[40]Steven Sharif

Discovery of legendary items will unlock further chapters of the Histoire et traditions.[42]

Easter eggs

Alpha-1 easter eggs

Alpha-0 easter eggs

Il pourrait peut-être exister une paire de sandales; une fois trouvées elle vous offrait un bonus ou un bénéfice majeur... Vous pourriez avoir besoin d'une compétence utilitaire pour les trouver.[47][48]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse easter eggs

There is a sandal out there. We will also have prizes and achievements for finding the sandal.[49]Steven Sharif
