Today we are going to talk about the unique and endless character possibilities in Ashes of Creation. However, everything is still subject to change because it is still an unfinished product. Without further ado, let’s start.
Before exploring the Ashes of Creation world, you first have to select a race that you will use. There are essentially four races with two subtypes each and a wild card race.
These are humans that are conceptually similar to a medieval European country or like the empire fantasy. Kaelars will be more effective in terms of mid-maxing.
These are humans that are similar to a middle eastern civilization. These types mainly value trade law and hardship playstyles.
These are the mountain-dwelling dwarves that favor stoic, tradition, and forge playstyles, making them effective in physical classes for min-maxing.
These are island dwellers similar to simoans who favor family and freedom and courage playstyles, making them most useful in magical classes for min-maxing. They will probably be a good choice for water-based gameplay.
These are your well-known orc faction that favors honor, power, and tranquility, making them the best suited as physical classes for min-maxing.
These are conceptually similar to trolls. WoW, which values celestial, purpose, and fate playstyles, making them the best suited for magical classes for min-maxing. They also have the racial benefit of navigating open seas.
These are similar to high elves from Warhammer fantasy which favors imperial pride and culture play styles, making them the best suited for min-maxing physical classes.
They are conceptually similar to the Night Elves in WoW, where they prefer nature, balance, and fury playstyle, making them best suited to the magical classes in mid maxing.
These are wild card races because they combine different ethnicities that can significantly adjust their racial appearance. You get dials and sliders to change your character’s look as a Tolnar from a mix of other races.
After selecting the Race of your character, you need to select a class based on the role you want to play. After leveling up, you can choose a second class that can start your chosen character’s journey.
Remember to choose wisely because every character and class you choose will be your character and class forever
