Gear slots

Alpha-2 Level 30 Mage character sheet UI.[50]

We wanted to create something that would handle a couple of different roles, with obviously your equipment slots for what we call a "paper doll", which is that display of your character. Eventually it won't just be a image of your character, we hope to have the 3D character and be able to rotate around, look at what you're wearing. And then we wanted to support a couple of different features here, with some base stats; the equipment, which will show what equipment you have available to quick swap, so you don't have to have your inventory and the screen open; detailed stats for those people who want to get into all of the details; and then of course gear sets. So this is going to be able to swap to your sets of gear quickly; and being able to save different loadouts.[51]Colby Marchi

There are multiple gear slots in Ashes of Creation.[51]

  • Previously it was stated there were 16 gear slots.[58]

Gear appearance priority

Players can set the appearance priority for the items they wish to show in their Back and Belt slots.[54][57][71]

  • Only one item can show at a time, and that is determined by player choice.[4]
