    10/31/18 Halloween Stream
     
    Hello, community. Today at 1pm PDT 3pm CST there will be a live stream from intrepid studios twitch account. They have also been having a contest for Halloween which ends at the time of this stream. The prize was a 500 USD Intrepid copy of the game. Which is no longer available in the store. (we will be writing up a summery of the stream as it comes out).
    Weather Mechanics
    They spent time in the video stream today displaying what the Alpha 1 Phase 2 would have. They showed the weather mechanics for the game, and the weather effects results on the world around you. In the example they showed during the stream they had a spider Demon that was pulled out due to the rain.    Combat: Active/Passive for Phase 2   They also showed combat with the tab targeting / action combat combination coming into the Alpha 1 phase 2.    They also showed a village sage node, and combat with monsters which had moved into a nearby graveyard and combat with them.   Cosmetics   They showed a sneak peak of the new round of cosmetics for the Halloween season.    Alpha 1 Phase 1 no longer Phase 1 APOC   Alpha 1 phase one will now be "APOC" apocalypse. They will expose the BR, Castle Siege, etc of Phase 1 will be exposed to all parties over time. These are side game modes separate from the MMORPG. Apocalypse will be f2p mode. Progress, quests, achievements will give you earn you cosmetics, cosmetics, mounts to earn, housing furniture, emotes, weapon variants/skins through.   Q&A   Pets for artisan class? some classes like summoner will have the ability   Is parkour still in ashes of creation? time consuming, but we will approach this as much as we are able to within time consumption. Obviously they would like to have a full parkour system but the games already got a large scope.   When will they be stepping up blog post? They will be implementing new blogs with the updating website. They will also be posting Nodes videos. "Soon"   Will the Apocalypse system take away from the MMORPG? No, they will provide testing for active combat system of the MMORPG. APOC will always funnel and fuel what we can do in the MMORPG.   What will be some of the buildings for the specific nodes? As nodes develop in stages they will get different buildings. Militaristic will have barracks at stage three that will provide missions and training. This will be delved into further in the nodes videos in the future blog posts.   Will there be viability in using only a single one handed weapon vs duel wielding / sword and board? The benefit of duel wielding will have different skills available if you do point allocation. It depends on what you want to accomplish (not always a weapon but usually there will be something in that second slot).   Is the release before 2020 still likely? Yes. The betas we intend to have will be "short" the game should be pretty much done at beta stage ("short and sweet").     ****This Saturday at 9AM PDT Intrepid Studios will be participating with second life fundraising

    8/31/18 Leaks

    8/31/18 Steven Leaks
    Leaks
    A: Steven said, "that there is a weapon in the arena phase that is a shield"

    Q: When asked how blocking would work within the game with the item
    A: Steven said, "It has its own hit box with hp"

    Q: How will summoner secondary class choices work? Will there be summoned weapons?
    A: Steven Said, "Summoner secondaries will grant a variety of primary classes the ability to augment skills to create "summoned" weapons to attack an enemy. However, the ability to "equip" these summoned weapons is not possible at the moment"

     
    ****Below are some images leaked today for Ashes of Creation




    Alpha One Environment Preview(In Game)

    In the video up above we get a sneak peak preview to what the environment will look like for Alpha 1 which is set to be released Q4 of 2018. This video showcases a lot of the eye candy and power behind Unreal Engine 4.
    :07-:14 The video opens up to a beautiful sunset in the distance with a river flowing through what appears to be a small town.
    :15-:18 Up next we have what appears to be a swamp showing off some spiked tree's, fog and a look at some of the foilage in the game.
    :19-:24 This next landscape showcases a campsite with a forest theme including huts and primitive buildings. Looks to be Aela Human related in terms of race.
    :25-:39 This seems to be showing a much closer look at the town from the beginning of the video.
    :40-:47 In this part of the video we see some rock formations(ore mining?) and a close look at housing for players(plot of land) complete with a farm.
    :48-:50 This seems to be a religious temple/church. I feel like this might be part of the divine node type. Not much is known on that node type yet though.
    :52-:54 Small look at a Tower and a large castle with a forest/mountain landscape in the background.
    :55-1:18 Shows some more in-depth footage from up above.
    1:18-1:24 Waterfall flowing down into a river(UE4 makes water look amazing). Followed by a strange wooden statue of Groot?
    1:26-1:29 Massive tower showing off different biomes in the game.
    1:30-1:33 Lush landscape featuring giant Mushrooms!
    1:37-1:40 Bigger look at a massive castle.
    1:42-1:48 This is in the video where they announce that this city is called Verra. I imagine this will be a hub for beginners before they venture further out into the world.
    1:49-1:52 First look at a cave system possibly Under realm?
    1:54-1:58 More outside shots of Verra.
    1:59-2:00 Closer look at a wooden statue around a campfire that looks like Groot 🙂
    2:00-2:02 Stonehenge type situation with a stone head in the center. Secret cow level vibes anyone?
    2:03-2:13 More camera angles of Verra featuring a very prominent tower that I assume we will know where we are at judging by the size of it!
    The Intrepid Studios team has mentioned that the first week of August will be the showcase for the combat system that they have been working on the past few months. We are getting closer and closer to seeing Alpha 1 become reality. I cannot wait to play it!
