    10/31/18 Stream

    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. So we haven't had any news out because as everyone may or may not know the Alpha 1 is currently under NDA. All photos, and video of the current version of the Alpha 1 is under NDA. This said I wanted to give a little update for the situation of the game for people within / outside of the community. At this point the Alpha 1 is just a Battle Royal. As Steven has said the reason for the NDA at this point is they want to make sure server stability is at a point. The servers the first week were "unstable". However, progressively they've kept the servers up with more and more people. The first week only starting with a 450 player-base, and then subsequently adding 750, and now speculating on adding up to 3000 more players for this next week. It is rare for an open Alpha 1 to exist without NDA. So while we wait for NDA to lift this is the update we can bring you.

Environmental Michael "Bacon" Human, Elves, and Tribal "set" of areas progressions tech level human will be more western, and then progress to castles, and at the metro level the nodes for humans will look more Gothic in nature. Three castle sets, promo-freeholds. The modularity of every place will be able to be customized and allows assets to be breakable.

  15. Action Combat Weapons Bow We get to see in this video that the bow will zoom in form of the standard sniper view when the arrow is pulled back. Its fast response time and ability to be used while in movement is confirmed. Crossbow Again much like bow we have the regular zoomed in effect the speed seems faster for reload but the accuracy doesn't seem to line up 100% with the route of the crossbow you can see as it progresses from the wielder the arrow starts to shift to the left. Staff Long striding attacks with the staff seems to be what this shows us. seemingly slower based on the size of the weapon vs the speed of the wands basic attacks, bow, or crossbow on a similar speed variant for melee as the lance shown later. Lance Whats neat about this weapon is the range at which it allows you to attack your enemy obviously its not as fast as a smaller weapon but its ability to get at a target sooner and the range at which it seems to attack all targets within really makes this a beautiful weapon to behold. Wand fast flicks of the wand seem to allow for multiple attacks in a small span. We can see in this 3 second video clip the wand fires 4 shots in about a span of 2 seconds so really allowing 1 attack every 0.5 seconds approx. Two-handed Sword This was interesting particularly because of the speed of the two handed sword. It feels like little time is lost for using such a huge weapon in combat. the character on the receiving side you can see is using the staff, and is considerably slower in wielding it. Abilities Crowd Control The nice thing here is it looks to not be cast on an area click and cast but go directly a distance in-front of the player area of effect. Meteor Teleport Line of sight obviously effects movement abilities and spells based on this visual. Stealth
