Naval combat involves different types of Ships with varying capabilities, armaments and roles to play out on the high seas. There will be a balance and counterbalance between ships from PvP and PvE perspectives.[1]

Battles at sea will be epic. They will have some supreme rewards and/or losses if the battle succeeds or fails.[2]Steven Sharif

Naval schedule

Ship assets will likely be released leading in to Alpha-2.[3]

Guns and gunpowder

Gunpowder (black powder) weapons will not be present in Ashes of Creation.[4]

Weaponry such as Potion launchers, Siege weapons and weapons used in Naval combat are based on the arcane arts.[5]

As we said in the past, were not really about that black powder life. Instead it's really going to be focused on the arcane arts: The elements; the use of radiance and darkness; and then those being employed in larger weaponry, such as the type of siege weaponry between ship battles as well as those and sieges. A potion launcher is an example of the arcane energies that can be mastered in order to facilitate these highly destructive alchemical blends that can be created.[5]Steven Sharif

Ships

Sailing will be pretty in-depth and it's going to be based on the size of the ship that you're using. So there will be components for seamanship that other players you will need to have on board if you want to operate a vessel to the best of it's abilities: Let's say in combat or traversing just the world.[7]Steven Sharif

Summoning ships

Ships (excluding Naval caravans) can only be summoned from a port or harbor.[8][9]

  • Ships may be able to be summoned in rivers (or other bodies of water) depending on the depth of the water.[10]
  • Naval caravans are initiated when a land-based caravan intersects with an ocean.[8]

You can summon your ships up but you'll need to summon them from land, which means that if something happens to your armada out at sea you won't have backups to just summon immediately in the middle of the fight... They'll have to do so from shore somewhere from some port or harbor.[9]Steven Sharif

Ship building

Ship building is a crafting profession that is able to construct ship components based on blueprints that unlock capabilities that scale with their progression within the ship building profession.[11][12][13]

  • Movement, Durability, Speed, Turn rate, Hit points, Defensive and Damage abilities.[11][12][13]
  • Aesthetic customization.[13]
  • Ship components can be sold to other players.[11]

A player does not need to be a ship builder to construct ships. Players utilize the ship components that are crafted by ship builders to upgrade their ships.[11][14]

  • Anyone with the right schematics, materials and an advanced enough node may construct a ship.[15]

You will not need to be a ship builder profession to construct ships. The shipbuilder profession particularly they have the ability to craft components of the ships which increases the ship's capabilities, defenses, speeds, turn rate, offense and defense, you know all those types of things and then they can sell those to other players.[11]Steven Sharif

Players can choose which "joints" get populated with either utility or weaponry spots on a ship.[17]

Ship destructibility

Dynamic destructibility of ships is under consideration.[18]

I mean traditionally if we did not use dynamic destruction, that what we would use is decals to simulate damage on the ship based on an overall hit point value. At certain hit point values we would swap out the mesh to show a more destructive state potentially; and that and you know at that point for a user in regards to immersion you know both are very similar from the immersion factor right?[18]Steven Sharif
