Ashes of Creation hosts a wide array of progression paths that offer augments to a character's primary skills.[1][2]

Class augments

Primary skills (class abilities) are based on a player's archetype.[5] Players can personalize their primary skills with augmentation from a secondary archetype (secondary class).[5][6]

  • Augments to primary skills will fundamentally change the way the ability works - adapting what the ability once did to incorporate the identity of the secondary class.[7]
  • Choosing the same primary and secondary archetype increases focus on that archetype.[8]
  • Each skill in the primary tree has a minimum of four augment choices from the secondary tree.[9]
  • Players receive skill points as they level. These can be used to level up skills within their skill tree.[10]
    • It will not be possible to max all skills in a skill tree.[10]
  • In terms of skill progression, players can choose to go "wide" and get a number of different abilities, or go "deep" into a few specific abilities.[11]
  • Changing the augmentations on your skills will require you to go to a NPC in a Village node or higher.[12]
  • Active skills could look totally different after an augment gets applied.[13]

You only get active skills from your primary class and that active skill could look totally different after an augment gets applied. It really depends on what the augment is.[13]Стивен Шариф

Key for the augment system is that these augments are meant to demonstrate a core identity of the secondary class type you've chosen. So if from the eight archetypes whatever you choose as your secondary, you're going to receive a choice of augments that relate to some core ideal of that class. You know like a tank is about controlling the battlefield, is about surviving. The mage is about dealing damage and elements and ability in AoEs. The rogue is going to be about stealth and critical damage. So those augments are going to to play towards those identities.[14]Стивен Шариф

The idea behind the system is that you're kind of skirting the line through these augmentations of your role, right. We have the traditional holy trinity that's present in class designs for MMOs and it's often that those either are not deviated at all or completely deviated from entirely. The augment is to kind of offer a balance between that where you still maintain the semblance of that trinity system while offering the opportunity to customize your play experience towards one of the other angles in the triangle.[15]Стивен Шариф

Расовые аугменты

Расовые аугменты are based on a character's race and are available to each class.[16]

In keeping with our theme of Consequence, and unlike other games, race won’t just be a matter of look, with relatively inconsequential abilities tacked on. Instead they integrate deeply into our class system, augmenting and changing the basic chassis provided by our eight core archetypes. Our goal here is to create a system where an elven fighter feels different, but serves the same role as a dwarven fighter.[19]

Religious augments

Strong religions provide augments that can be applied to a player's primary skills.[20]

You're going to have advancement within the religion and within the church that you're a part of. And those advancements are going to be both reflective of the community's development of that religion out in the world: Building temples, building infrastructure for that, completing certain quests for it; and then you will benefit from the community's development of that specific religion via having certain augment abilities that you'll gain access to be able to apply on top of your secondary class augments to skills; and it's going to reflect what the nature of that religion is.[21]Стивен Шариф

Social organization augments

Игрок прогрессирует в социальной организации путём выполнения заданий или квестов.[22] Будут иерархические пути содержащие специальные цепочки квестов согласно тематике организации.[22]

- Например, гильдия воров может требовать в квестах получение конкретных предметов для продвижения внутри организации.[22]

Социальные организации получат цепочки квестов в которых смогут принять участие игроки, некоторые будут содержать саботаж, шпионаж, интриги... В то время как это не обязательно PvP в смысле боев между игроками, это PvP в смысле противопоставления сообществ этих организаций друг против друга в соревновательной атмосфере, где только некоторые вещи могут быть достигнуты некоторыми сообществами; и не все смогут успешно выполнить определённые задания. Так что, я думаю, это уникальный способ привлечь значимый конфликт который не обязательно должен сводиться к PvP, потому что, очевидно, у нас много PvP систем в игре и у игрока есть много способовпринять участие в PvP сражении; но мы также хотим убедиться что с точки зрения прокачки, с точки зрения системы будут возможности следовать этим цепочкам квестов, эти задания будут стравливать организации между собой, особенно с организационной точки зрения.[23]Стивен Шариф

  • Социальные организации открывают аугменты навыков.

Вы увидите что аугменты активно используются во многих наших системах. КОгда мы говорим о системах в гильдиях, социальных организациях, религиях. Многое из этих вещей будет влиять на то, чем и каким образом вы сможете аугментировать свои навыки.[24]Джеффри Бард

Skill transfer

Players will not be able to transfer their skills to other players.[25]
