Châteaux de guilde

De Ashes of Creation Wiki
Aller à la navigation Aller à la recherche

Avec cinq châteaux dans le monde, et chacun ayant été possédé par différentes civilisations dans le lointain passé de Verra, vous pouvez vous attendre à ce que chaque Château ait sa propre identité. Des terrains et des configurations différents feront que chaque Château aura ses propres avantages et désavantages. Le simple fait d'avoir réussi à capturer un Château ne signifiera pas que vos stratégies fonctionneront pour le suivant. Les commandants devront connaître le terrain, prendre en compte le moment du jour, les conditions météorologiques et même les saisons lorsqu'ils établieront leurs plans de bataille.'[1]

Ces Châteaux sont occupés lorsque les joueurs arrivent sur Verra, et leurs habitants actuels devront être délogés avant que n'importe quel joueur puisse le revendiquer. Les châteaux seront des zones de raid dangereuses et de haut niveau jusqu'à ce qu'elles soient dégagées, et le premier group de joueurs à le faire remportera le Château comme récompense.[1]

Cinq châteaux de guilde existent dans Ashes of Creation.[1][2] Ces châteaux seront initialement occupés par un adversaire PNJ. Ce sont les principaux antagonistes dans l'histoire.[3]

  • Les guildes ont une période de temps pour monter de niveau afin d'assiéger ces châteaux.
  • Ces châteaux seront très difficiles à prendre aux PNJs.
  • Les nœuds de château seront absents autour de châteaux de PNJs.

Castle regions


Châteaux de guilde influence a castle region around them.[4]

Castle taxes

Castles have direct power over the Nodes that belong to it, but also have soft power across the entire region it belongs to. All Nodes belonging to that region pay fealty to the Castle in the form of taxes paid directly to the Castle. The Monarch sets the rate, and can use those proceeds to upgrade defenses, maintain the Castle’s direct Nodes, or provide buffs and benefits to the citizens of that region, as the magnanimous ruler that you are.[1]

Châteaux de guilde impose a tax on all revenue for the nodes within its region.[9][10]

Castles have the ability to allocate taxes collected from nodes under them toward certain benefits that go back to the node. Or they can be more selfishly governed that treasury more towards the guild that owns it and that obviously is going to have some political implications, because it could- if you're not using it for the benefit of the people in the region they might rise up and help take you out from that that position of owning that castle.[9]Steven Sharif

Benefits of guild castles

Guild castle concept art.[1]

It's a reciprocal relationship between the castle and its nodes essentially. There are benefits granted to citizens of the castle; and the longer that the castle remains in the hands of its incumbent guild, the stronger the benefits become overall. But at the same time that represents a greater incentive to attack the castle because the rewards will get greater over time also.[11]Steven Sharif

Châteaux de guilde provide benefits and trophies for guilds that capture and control them.[11][17]

  • These benefits increase the longer a guild holds its castle.[11]

There are levers and dials that are present to both the owners of Castles as well as the elected officials of Nodes that during their administration they have the ability to impact and influence the region around them.[18]Steven Sharif

Guild castles exert a King or Queen's presence over nodes within their region.[11][18][19]

Castle nodes

One of the 5 guild castles is located on an island, depicted with its 3 adjacent castle nodes.[20][21]

Should you be deft enough to take a Castle, you’ll now be responsible for managing it. Castles will have their own Nodes associated with them, and developing and defending those Nodes will determine the state of your Castle during the next siege. If you’ve done a good job managing your kingdom, then you’ll have more and better options available for deployment during the next siege. If you let your populace fall to ruin, you may have to rely solely on your own devices.[1]

Châteaux de guilde have three adjacent castle nodes in close proximity.[2][22] The guild must develop those nodes to enhance the defenses of the castle.[2] It will be possible, but very difficult for a single guild to fully develop these nodes. They will likely need assistance from the broader community.[23]

Once the castle is owned by a guild that's when the supporting castle nodes start to come online and spawn each week prior to the fourth week castle siege. They'll have to form alliances, they'll have to get support, they'll have to get resources, they'll be able to allocate funds that have been collected through taxation in order to strengthen the defenses as well as hiring additional NPC mercenaries.[25]Steven Sharif

Castle nodes are leveled through questing by the owning guild or alliance guilds.[22]

  • Levelling castle nodes is a hastened process compared to regular nodes.[3]
  • At the end of each week leading up to a castle siege there is a period of time in the weekend where NPC generated caravans start moving toward one of the castle nodes carrying castle taxes from the nodes that fall under the castle's purview.[11][26]
    • During this time it is incumbent upon the owning guild, its allies, and citizens of the nodes to escort these caravans to the castle node.[11]
    • The enemies of the guild have incentive to attack these caravans to reap the rewards from the caravan and to sabotage the tax collection, which will reduce the defensive capability of the castle nodes and hence the castle itself.[11][22]
    • Citizens of nodes that fall under the purview of the castle are automatically registered as defenders of these caravans and may not participate in attacks against them.[11]
  • Completing these quests unlocks services and functions that are useful to the occupying guild and its allies as well as boosting the defenses the castle.[22]

If they fail to to level up those nodes or complete those quests within the three prior weeks before the declaration week, then the castle will be at a disadvantage.[22]Steven Sharif

Being a member of the occupying guild automatically makes you a garrison of the castle nodes and castle itself.[2]

  • Only members of the occupying guild are citizens of these nodes.[27]
  • This citizenship is different to normal node citizenship. Castle nodes don't operate like normal nodes.[27][24]

Siège de Château

Alpha-1 castle siege gameplay.[28]

Throughout Ashes of Creation, the player has an opportunity to participate in massively multiplayer siege warfare. Since castles are likely the world’s most limited resource, it will be a task to secure and hold them. Involving hundreds of players on a single battlefield, our sieges will employ many moving parts and intricate design features. Because of the difficult nature of taking and keeping a castle there are great rewards available to the players for their efforts. Castles will allow players to exert control over nearby lands and allow for the development of unique buildings in the nearby towns.[29]

Guildes participate in Siège de Château in an effort to capture and occupy one of the five guild castles in Ashes of Creation.[2]

  • The minimum goal is for 250x250 players to be on a single battlefield. It is hoped that this can be increased to 500x500 over time.[33][34][35][36]
  • There will be systems that mimic some of the mechanics of sieges, but there won't be practice sieges.[37]
  • There may be instanced locations within otherwise open-world castle and node sieges, where specific groups can participate in small, short duration objective-based battles that will affect the overall outcome of the siege.[38]
I love castle-based gameplay. I love trophies. I like rewarding risk a lot; and for me it's very difficult to imagine a MMO that I would want to play where there is not competition of strategic prowess that determines the outcome of these types of events and there is not a meaningful reward both mechanically and from just a bragging rights perspective that players can aim for and try to achieve. I think that it brings a lot to the game when it comes to motivations, to excel, to level, to gain power, to engage those different progression loops when there is an ultimate goal or trophy that is not static and doesn't exist forever once you achieve it, but that you must constantly perform in order to maintain; and that's really the purpose of these castles.[43]Steven Sharif

A guild that captures a castle will own that castle for a month before it is sieged again.[44][3]

Each week leading up to the siege week... is a week that's dedicated to one of the three castle dedicated nodes. So around the castle there are three nodes. They represent week, one, two, and three; and then the fourth week is the siege against the castle. Those can only be elevated up to stage three. We've discussed this in the past and there's definitely information out there on the community ran wiki.[44]Steven Sharif
  • In the first three weeks that a guild occupies a castle they will need to level up each of their castle nodes to Village stage through questing.[44][3]
    • Each of the three castle nodes have a siege against it at the end of each of these three weeks.[3][27]
  • The fourth week is declaration week, where other guilds have the opportunity to lay down their declaration flag or to sign up as a defender of the castle.[44][3]
  • Depending on how well the guild defends their castle nodes results in better defenses for the castle.[3][27]
  • Different siege weaponry will grant the attackers the ability to destroy walls, doors and sections of the castle in order to gain access to the inner keep area.[22]
  • When castles change hands (following a siege), some taxes stay with the castle and some stay with the guild.[16]
There will be benefits to attracting people... even if they're not in your guild or alliance – a feudal like system, where you can attract other players who are just independent of this whole politic. They will have things to do there - benefits to receive - and there will be a reciprocal relationship between who you can attract, what they do for you; and how that benefits you and them.[3]Steven Sharif


Rois et Reines

Leaders of guilds that occupy guild castles are referred to as Rois et Reines.[46]

Ecuries Royale

info-orange.pngCertaines des informations suivantes n'ont pas été récemment confirmées par les développeurs et peuvent ne pas figurer sur la feuille de route de développement actuelle.

Ecuries Royale are a type of building in Ashes of Creation.[48]

  • Castles come with a royal stables.[48]
  • Maires can choose to build royal stables within their node. Once chosen, the community will need to build the stables through quests.[48]
  • Royal mounts must be mounted in a royal stables in order to fly.[48]

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.[48]Steven Sharif

Guild housing

The term "guild housing" refers to guild buildings and not guild owned player housing.[49]

Salles de guilde

Summer guildhall appearance cosmetic concept art.[50]

Guildhalls are the ultimate expression of a guild's power! In Ashes these structures will serve as focal points for a guild, offering any guilds who construct them a whole host of benefits as well as customization options.[51]

Salles de guilde serve as a focal point for a guild, offering a host of benefits and customization options.[51]

  • When a guild reaches a certain level, its guild master is granted a certificate to enable placement of a guild hall.[52]
  • Guild halls may be placed within Baronies within the ZI of a node.[53]
    • A barony can only have a single guild hall.[53]
    • The number of baronies that can have an active guild hall is determined by the node's stage.[54][55]
Only a limited subset of the guild halls available around the node are available concurrently... So you might only have two that might be available at fifth level and then three at sixth level of a node; and the guilds have an opportunity to select from the six available which three are going to be active.[54]Steven Sharif
  • Guildes mécènes may also place their guild hall within (the footprint of) their patron node. These guild halls have different perks and benefits to halls placed within Baronies.[56][52][57][56]
    • Patron guild halls placed within Baronies may have the ability to confer benefits to surrounding estates within that node by speccing into passives in their guild skill tree and carrying out a lengthy quest line.[58]
  • The design of guild-halls is currently subject to active iteration by the developers.[59]

Forteresses de guilde

info-orange.pngCertaines des informations suivantes n'ont pas été récemment confirmées par les développeurs et peuvent ne pas figurer sur la feuille de route de développement actuelle.

Forteresses de guilde are siegable guild halls within Ashes of Creation. These are different from nodes and castles.[61]

  • Guild fortresses are objectives in guild wars.[60] These are contested on a regular basis.[52]
  • The developers will decide if guild fortresses will be implemented in the game or shelved.[52]
The fortress design is also something that might be on the shelf. We haven't decided yet. We're going to look into it, but the idea behind the fortress is that this is a competitive guild hall so to speak where you have to contend for it on a regular basis so to speak; or can be taken from you necessarily. Whereas the guild hall is a structure similar to freehold structure can only be taken through successful sieges against a node per-se are not taken but destroyed.[52]Steven Sharif
