The Ceneri della creazione user interface (UI) is built with customization in mind.[3]

The UI will be very adaptable for many play styles.[4]Steven Sharif

Character sheet

Character stats and attributes.[5][6]

UI settings

UI settings are able to be saved locally.[11]

  • User interface scale adjustments should be possible in Alpha-1.[12]
  • Adjusting or disabling screen shake may be possible.[13]

Various display elements can be toggled on or off:

Action bar

Alpha-0 Ranger ability icons.
Alpha-0 Mage ability icons.

Players can build their characters with the active skills they want on their action bar.[16][17]

  • The number of skills on the action bar will be contained (fewer than 30).[18]
  • There will be an option to include multiple hotbars (action bars).[17]
  • For example: One Fighter will be different from another based on what active skills they have chosen.[18]
  • Through skill choice, players can customize their combat experience to focus on tab targeted skills, action targeted skills, or a mix of both.[19]
  • Players are not given skills as they level up, they must choose what skills they take.[20]
  • There is no spellbook requiring memorization.[21]

Combat targeting

Tab targeting during the Alpha-0 Timeless protector boss fight in the Dünheim dungeon.[22]

Hybrid combat refers to the choice between tab targeted skills, action targeted skills, or a mix of both in the Ashes of Creation MMORPG.[19] This is achieved through choice of skills/abilities.[24][25]

  • A tab-targeted ability requires a target in order to utilize that skill.[26]
  • An action skill is anything that can be utilized through placement of the player, such as a reticle, a ground template or a directional placement.[26]
  • It may not be possible to be able to fully spec into just action or tab targeted skills. There might be a 75% cap on choosing skills from any one type.[25]

Skill progressions, skill point allocation is determined by the player. The player will be able to choose either more tab-target oriented skills or more action-based skills and customize their playable experience to what accommodates their preference. From a balancing standpoint for us developers, we need to make sure that certain abilities house certain functions so that there's a balance between skill shots and tab-target abilities.[25]Steven Sharif

A toggle button allows the player to switch between action and tab targeted combat modes.[27]

Action oriented and tab oriented versions of skills will have different characteristics. Variables will change based on which version is chosen.[29]

  • Damage.[29]
  • Charge up time.[29]
  • CC effects.[29]
  • Cooldown.[30]
  • Energy consumption.[30]
  • Cost to spec.[30]
  • Attack range will likely remain the same; as it is driven by the weapon or skill itself.[31]

As an example: Let's say you're playing a ranged class. You could have an action-oriented power shot in your skill tree or you could have a single target power shot that ramps up and does more damage. [29]Steven Sharif

For the purposes of balance, certain skill types will be either tab or action oriented skills. For example:[30]

  • Hard CCs may be housed in action oriented skills because they are skill shots that are more difficult to land.[30][25]
  • Softer CC's would be housed in tab-targeted abilities.[30]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse combat targeting

Action combat in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse utilizes a targeting reticle.[84]

  • A hot key can be used to toggle reticle mode on and off.[84]
  • Left mouse click is used for basic weapon attacks.[85]
  • Right mouse click is used as a "focus" button. It can also be used to activate root motion attacks for melee.[85]
  • Combat targeting uses hitbox registration in three separate regions: Upper body, lower body and head.[86]
  • Certain weapons and skills have ADS (Aim Down Sights) functionality.[87][88]

There will be aim down sights. You may have seen it that you can aim down sights on weapons; and there will be scopes on like crossbows and stuff that - arcane scopes - that you can use.[87]Steven Sharif

Some spells do have ADS. There's a long-range meteor blast that can be used from one of the spell books; and that has an arcane zoom in. It lets you zoom into a target.[88]Steven Sharif

Alpha-1 will test hybrid action/tab combat.[24][89]

Headshot mechanics

Headshot mechanics will be implemented in Ceneri della creazione based on testing.[90]

  • If headshots are implemented, they will be along the lines of a higher critical chance.[90]

The idea behind headshot in the MMORPG is that, if we do implement headshots - part of this testing is to determine if we will - but if we were to implement headshots it will be along the lines of a higher critical chance. So basically hitting a skillshot on the head will increase significantly the opportunity for that damage to be critical. Will they one-shot? Absolutely not.[90]Steven Sharif

Headshots in action combat are equivalent to a critical hit in tab targeted combat.[91]

  • Players relying on tab skills will have a fixed critical hit chance every time they use an ability or weapon.[91]
  • Players using action-based skills are going to rely on getting a head shot or hitting a critical spot on the opponent.[91]

So if you take a look at like kind of what a head shot represents: A head shot is basically a critical hit; and players who are relying on tab skills will have that critical hit chance baked into their character. They will have that fixed chance every time they use an ability or use a spell or swing a weapon; and then somebody who is kind of preferring you know action based, in order to get that crit, they're not gonna be relying necessarily on their stats they're gonna be relying on whether they get a headshot or not, or are able to hit that critical spot on that character. So that's kind of the direction that we're going in that way. Again, it's gonna be hybridized so there's gonna be a little bit of both happening in both places.[91]Jeffrey Bard

Control settings

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse gameplay settings.

Players are able to customize their keyboard control scheme.[93]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse battle royale gryphon redeployment.[95]

Press B to redeploy your gryphon when you're high enough in the air![95]


The issue with macros is that from an anti cheat metric perspective it's difficult to define what a macro is against a script. And in order to catch all scripts sometimes you have to prevent the macro usage. So really that's a that's a data issue. If we allow for macros then we lose our ability to precisely ban script users, botters.[96]Steven Sharif

Controller support

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse may have controller support.[98]

Controller support will likely be something we work on closer to launch.[100]Steven Sharif

Camera settings

The aim is to provide a variety of camera options in Ceneri della creazione.[101]

Q: What kind of camera distance is Intrepid using for fights? (WoW vs FF14)
A: Closer to FF14. We want people to have a wide range of view, especially since our battles will be very large. We want people to be able to visually access their surroundings.[104]Margaret Krohn

We don't have the first-person zoom in because when you get into first-person there's a different animation set required for the holding of the weapon: The hands that you see in front of you; and we don't have those animations. So we're really focusing on third-person.[87]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse camera settings

The Ashes of Creation Apocalypse camera is a tied third-person view, over the shoulder, for the purposes of reticle specific zoom options and aim-down-sights. This is solely intended for the current action combat.[105]

The idea behind our hybrid system is going to obviously be customizable from a traditional higher up third-person view that is seen in MMORPGs; and then to have that customizable so that more action-oriented players might be able to come in closer to the character and have more feasibility there.[105]Steven Sharif

Mappa del mondo

Ceneri della creazione map.[106] The circles on the map are divine gateways that are located in the ruined cities of the four great races of Verra. The diamonds are the starting settlements for the returning races.[107]

If you have tuned into our live streams and update videos, you may have caught glimpses of Verra. The world is very large and meant to hold around 10,000 concurrent players. With elaborate trade routes and sea-play, the Verran landscapes must provide complex obstacles and intricate passages between its regions. Alpha One will be the first test phase in the actual world map of Verra. For the first time ever, our community will step foot on the world we hope you'll call home.[106]Steven Sharif

The original Ashes map from my pathfinder world of Ashes made 10 years ago. Obviously some adjustments had to be made for the mmorpg. But the main two continents and their points of interest have a lot of the same.[108]Steven Sharif

The world of Verra features an in-game viewable world map. This map is not randomly generated, and begins covered in a fog of war.[109] Players will not be able to see the world until they have explored it or gathered information about it. The world is also full of imperfect information, which will require the player to act on it for verification.[110]

For example, you may hear a rumor in a tavern that tells you the location of a cave full of weak Kobolds, but this was not accurate as the rumor was started by well-equipped bandits in order to waylay overconfident adventurers.[110]

When information is gathered, or the player has successfully explored an area, points of interest are marked on the map.[111]

  • These points of interest are determined by Node progression; and not every server will share the same map, as player decisions will vary server to server.[111]

In addition to node progression being a factor on map generation, zones in Ceneri della creazione will cater to all levels.[112]

Mini map

There is an in-game mini map and compass user interface in Alpha-1.[113][114]

Creatore del carattere

Il character creator (o schermata di modifica del personaggio) permette ai giocatori di definire l'aspetto del loro character in Ceneri della creazione.[116]

Avremo una vasta gamma di modifiche già dall'uscita.[117]

Se dovessi fare un'analogia, userei BDO come esempio di quello che cercherà di fare la nostra Creazione Personaggio.[118]

Sarà possibile selezionare la voce del personaggio da opzioni predefinite.[119]

Character appearance

Vogliamo che ci sia molta libertà per permettere alle persone di esprimere la loro identità, per giocare di ruolo come vogliono per quanto riguarda l'aspetto. Ci saranno dei parametri con i quali potrete modificare un personaggio. Vogliamo che la cultura e l'identità delle razze esista in modo da renderle facilmente identificabili rispetto ad altre culture ed altri giocatori. Per questo motivo dobbiamo avere uno spettro sul quale possano esistere. Ci saranno un sacco di pettinature e tatuaggi da provare . Sarete in grado di gestire le proporzioni del viso, delle ossa, dell'altezza, larghezza e percentuale di massa grassa. Potrete aggiungere peli corporei in diverse parti del corpo. Se vorrete avere dei peli sui piedi, potrete farlo.[122]Steven Sharif

La Character appearance può essere modificata nel character creator (CC)[123] ed attraverso saloni/barbieri all'interno del gioco.[124]

  • I modelli dei Character sono realistici.[125]
  • Il giocatore vedrà un personaggio generico primad delle modifiche.[126]
  • I giocatori potranno rendere il loro personaggio sovrappeso, magro, muscoloso.[127]
  • I design dei personaggi avranno influenze di diverse culture, come quelle Europee, Africane e Asiatiche.[128]
  • Le Lolis non saranno nel gioco.[129]

Gli slider offrirannp flessibilità nelle modifiche.[130]

  • Pettinature.[122]
    • Si potrà aggiungere del pelo in diverse parti del corpo.
  • Tatuaggi.[122]
  • Viso.[122]
  • Struttura ossea.[122]
  • Altezza.[122]
    • Non potrete fare personaggi alti due centimetri.[131]
  • Larghezza.[122]
  • Percentuale di massa grassa.[122]

Le modifiche permetteranno al character di apparire più femminile o mascolino.[132]

  • Altezza delle sopracciglia.[132]
  • Mento.[132]
  • Capelli.[132]
  • Barba.[133]
    • Le barbe delle Dwarven femmine non saranno uguali a quelle dei maschi. Saranno un tipo più intrecciato che non sia così voluminoso.[122]
    • I peli sul viso sono caratteristici dei Dünir, non dei Niküa.[122]
  • Tipi di corporatura.[132]
  • Ci saranno "slider per tette".[131]
    • Questi saranno relativi alla razza del personaggio.
    • Le proporzioni non saranno ridicole.

La Character appearance potrà essere salvata sull'hard disc.[134]

Character naming

Characters will have a first-name and an optional surname.[135]

  • There is a minimum length of three for a character name.[136]

Character names will appear on the character sheet and optionally on the character website page.[137]

  • In-game a character's name is displayed above their head. This can be the first or last name.[137]

Early access

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse may include an early access character creator.[138][139][140]

As we develop our character creation screen we'll implement that into arena mode. So can create characters there, save those characters. When you make a character in Ashes you can port over that save.[140]Steven Sharif

I would like to have the option for players to go in spend time, create characters save that character and then have it available in their suite their character creation suite as an option to preload at launch that they can take that's those settings and launch the character. I would love for there to be community rewards and competitions for the best made characters that we could do like a monthly kind of thing around and/or additionally I'd like for there to be implementation of housing and a housing suite that you can save your furniture load out as well for building out the interior of housing. I don't know if we'll be able to get to that. It is a cherry on top of the icing. And we'll see how the schedule looks with that regard.[141]Steven Sharif

Gear slots

There are 16 gear slots in Ceneri della creazione:[142]

Accessibility settings

There will be settings to aid colorblind players.[143]

ESRB rating

Cadaveri in un Pre-alpha raid encounter.[144]

L'obiettivo è avere un rating T for Teen per Ceneri della creazione, ma potrebbe avere un rating M for Mature.[145]

  • Potrà esserci un'opzione per disabilitare sangue e splatter.[146]
  • Probabilmente non ci saranno imprecazioni nelle quests.[147]

Gli antagonisti in questo gioco sono certamente dark... Non stiamo andando verso il "grimdark", ma ci sono alcune parti che potrebbero sembrarlo.[147]Jeffrey Bard


Gli addons non saranno permessi, in generale.[3]

  • Gli sviluppatori non vogliono che addons/mods siano necessari per godersi il gioco.[148]
  • Gli sviluppatori credono che i "parsers" (misuratori del DPS) possano avere effetti negativi.[3]
  • Il design dell'API del gioco è ancora in fase di considerazione.[150]
    • Ci saranno integrazoni disponibili per servizi di streaming come Twitch ed altri, ma non è un qualcosa che verrà già mostrato tramite un'API.[151]

Avremo un sacco di customizzazione presente nel gioco sia per quanto riguarda l'UI che per altri diversi punti che saranno naturalmente nel gioco, ma non vogliamo ancora aprire il gioco alle mods. Questa è una decisone che potrebbe cambiare in futuro, ma non è pianificata per l'uscita.[151]Steven Sharif

L'idea è quella di fare un collegamento diretto dalla compagnia per quanto riguarda i sistemi all'interno del gioco... Non vogliamo avere addons secondo me.[148]Steven Sharif

In-game chat

In-game text chat channels include:[152][153]

In-game voice (VOIP) channels include:[155]

Voice chat is not proximity based.[155]

  • Has fully functional mute/chat preferences.

Voice controls

Raid leaders are able to control Voice chat.[156]

  • Toggle (global) mute on the entire raid.[156]
  • Assign speaker roles allowing party members to globally mute other members.[156]

Raid members will be able to (locally) mute other members.[156]

If you are joined in raid where you have multiple squads that have connected into a raid for the castle sieges, the leaders of those squads will be able to communicate across all members of squad. So let's say you have five teams of four, for a total of twenty people within a particular raid... there are five that have global speech capacity; and then in those individual parties they'll also have their own inter-voice communication. So party leader will be able to hear their party members and the party members will hear each other, but they'll also be able to hear other party leaders speak as well.[157]Steven Sharif


Ceneri della creazione will be initially available in English, French, German, and Russian.[158][159]

  • Italian, Polish and Spanish localization will then be added.[159]
  • Other languages are being considered.[158]

Servers won't be language locked.[160]

  • There may be separate servers in the EU region based on language type.[159]

There's localization that will be present in the German and French Russian languages to start; and then we intend to also localize in Italian, Polish and Spanish. So servers will be allocated within the region as being one of those language type servers. So it's not going to be per country per se as it might be per language.[159]Steven Sharif

Efforts will be made to translate Ceneri della creazione into multiple languages.[160][161]

Emblem, logo and symbol editor

The user interface will allow emblems, logos and symbols to be designed in-game.[164][165][166]

The developers are now considering including image import functionality.[168] This was previously not under consideration.[164]

I know previously we had spoken about not allowing custom user images in the game, however I think we're leaning more now in the direction of allowing for custom user images. Absolutely well what it will be is the fact that we're a subscription game and if you want to jeopardize your account by doing the wrong thing with regards to custom users [images] then by all means you may do so and we'll have stringent practices in place to prevent that from actually being an issue.[168]Steven Sharif

Emblem editor functionality is tentatively planned for Alpha-2.[166]

Logging out

There will be a logout delay to prevent players from immediately logging out of combat.[169]


Multi-boxing/multi client polices haven't been finalized. In general, if a user has a legitimate account and is not botting then multi-boxing will be permitted.[170]

Mobile/web application

A mobile application and web interface allows players who are not logged into the game to have authority over certain services and mechanics.[171][172] Some functionality may come post-launch.[173]

Some of it may come post-launch... but we do want people to interact with the game on their phones when they're away from the computer; and we're going to do as much as we can to make that cool.[173]Jeffrey Bard

Farmhands and NPC assistance

Based on node type and progression, players will be able to hire NPCs to work as farmhands on their freehold farms. Players will be able to command these farmhands online in-game as well as offline via an application (mobile app) or web interface.[174][172]

  • Crop rotation management.
  • Plant or harvest specific crops.
  • Sell food or crops.

City hall

City hall is a government building within a node.[177]

We want the City Hall to be the place where big decisions are made for each Node. It should be where the “ruling class” comes together and decides what to do (these decisions can quickly make them the “old ruling class” too).

Mayors and node governments use City hall to visualize and control activities within their node. These capabilities will also be available via mobile/web inteface.[175]

Character page

A character web page (character sheet) will be available closer to live launch that shows the following:[178]

You will have a unique homepage for each character and that homepage will be able to be customized by the user to display unique information. It will have a small out-of-game RPG component where you can construct background and traits and stuff like that.[180]Steven Sharif

The character page will be accessible in game by opening a browser through the UI.[179]

That's part of the character sheet desire for us which hopefully will be accessible in game as well by opening a browser through our UI where you can get back history of a character that that character has input themselves into journal entries that they may choose to share with others... For role play perspective we want people to be in depth with their characters.[179]Steven Sharif

The player can manage what info is shown on the character page.[178]

Bulletin boards
