Intrepid Studios released another extensive gameplay video of its upcoming sandbox MMORPG Ashes of Creation, focusing on showcasing the Cleric archetype.
The video starts with a look at one of the many mounts of the game, the Noble Warhorn, which (as Director Steven Sharif aptly mention) is certainly a big fella. We then move on to a detailed description of the abilities the Cleric can use in battle.
Of course, since Ashes of Creation takes a rather classic approach to fantasy, the Cleric is pretty much the quintessential warrior healer as you would expect from RPG systems like D&D. It also has useful buffs, debuffs, and crowd control abilities.
We see these in action in the second part of the video, whioch showcases an incursion into a base of monsters, with the inevitable mayhem you may expect. We also get to see that (once again, as you expect from classic MMORPGs) healing generates a lot of threat, so managing that is important.
You can watch the video below.
Ashes of Creation has been in development for several years after it was funded via a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2017, gathering nearly $3.3 million from almost 20,000 users.
It's Alpha 2 test is supposed to have most of the game's systems and features available to enjoy, but it doesn't have a firm release date yet. You can see more in a video showcasing a freehold and housing, another focusing on tanks, another showcasing the Story Arc System and the Tower of Carphin, one showing off the Mage archetype, and another showcasing a roaming boss battle against a massive cyclops.
