There may be some gear binding (BoE or BoP) but it will be an exception rather than the rule, as this doesn't facilitate the objectives for the economy.
- Very little gear will be account bound or soulbound in Ashes of Creation.
- The game economy is based around crafting and degradation of items.
- 裝備 is obtained via crafting, gathering and processing along with raid and dungeon bosses.
A lot of what we experienced in games that usually come before us is that many things are account bound and they're soulbound to your character... Instead very little here is character bound. Very very little. The vast majority of gear- yes you will get quest related gear as rewards- but it won't be let's say one set in one dungeon and you must run the dungeon over and over. Instead we want to really emphasize the reliance on the economy and crafters and gatherers and processors to support a majority of the gear structure in-game, combined with that of world raid bosses and dungeon bosses; not a repetitive quest line through a single dungeon. – Steven Sharif
The developers intend to limit power creep via item sinks, the lack of gear binding, and the absence of pay-to-win or pay-to-convenience in Ashes of Creation.
All cosmetic store items will be non-tradeable.
- 時裝 are not tradeable with other players but can be reassigned to other characters (alts) within the same account.
- This is a reversal of the earlier statement that assignment of account-bound cosmetics to a character cannot be undone.
Transferring cosmetics to alts
Repetition will not be part of progression in Ashes of Creation.
- There will be no "grindy" quests.
- There will not be repetitive quest lines through a single dungeon to obtain gear.
- The aspiration is to have more things to do in the game than a player has time to do.
