Gathering lumber in Alpha-2.[2]

The first major reveal is that in Ashes of Creation we have now expanded the resource gathering system to include a great many of what the world is showing you of these resources. So when you see a tree, you can chop a tree. If you see a rock, you can mine a rock.[2]Steven Sharif

Lumberjacking (Logging) is a gathering artisan class in Ashes of Creation.[3][4]

Lumber (wood) is a gatherable resource in Ashes of Creation.[3]

Artisan tools

Gathering requires the creation and use of harvesting tools that enable the gathering of resources.[6][7][8]

  • Tools will have durability and tool lifespans.[12][13]
    • The amount of usages of a gathering tool increases as the gatherer becomes more proficient in the gathering artisan tree.[12]
    • Tools may become non-repairable, requiring re crafting.[13]
  • Artisans will not need to rely on other trees in order to make their tools.[7]
Tools do advance within the artisan tree, so your ability to either gather, process or craft will require the equivalent tools necessary at that stage of crafting in order to accomplish the task at hand. So, you could not mine copper and mithril with the same tool.[8]Steven Sharif
  • The developers are considering the introduction gathering tools that require two players, such as two-person saws that can fell larger trees.[9]
Your progression within the profession will take account what tools you can use. There might even be some opportunity to do some gathering with other players that you know. Typically in other games that I play you usually do the gathering alone. You're venturing around alone; and we wanted to take a look at maybe having a friend to help you with a two person saw on a larger tree. Maybe there's some panning that you could do as opposed to just hitting with the pickaxe. So, we'll have other tools that are part of that progression path and other activities that players can do if they would like to gather together.[8]Kory Rice
