The Ashen Foundry Knowledge Compendium

Hi friends, I'm excited to share a new feature on Ashen Foundry, The Compendium. This section of the site will serve as a repository of game knowledge both during development and after launch. Building this feature will be a considerable endeavor, but now that Intrepid is releasing details about gameplay mechanics in Ashes of Creation we can start defining the underlying database structure needed to describe the archetypes, classes, abilities, and active effects which will be present in game. 

Loads more information will be coming in the near future, but we have started by populating some of the base archetypes in game with the ability information announced for Alpha Zero.

    Compendium Feature - Active Effects

    New feature added to the Compendium. Look up the active skills which apply a certain known effect.

    For example: Stun (https://ashenfoundry.com/compendium/effect/stun/)

    Ability Embed Support

    We have a neat new feature which allows you to embed active abilities into articles and forum posts. Hopefully this feature will be helpful when creating build guides or discussing game mechanics.

    To use the feature, write a line of text containing tag [Ability=Name], replacing "Name" with the full capitalized name of the linked ability. For example typing  the following (without the hash #) will render as:

    #[Ability=Mage's Escape]

    Mage's Escape
    Mage 1
    Step into another dimension momentarily and Dash to emerge ahead of your original position.
    • Rank 1 - Reduce Hate from your current target and force them to Lose Target.
    • Rank 2 - Break Free to escape any active control effects.

    This is a "full-size" embed, note the upper-case A in Ability. A full-size embed will only work on its own line with no other accompanying text. Alternatively, you can do an "inline embeds", where an inline ability is typed as [ability=], note the lower-case a.

    For example, #[ability=Mage's Escape] (without the hash #) would render as Mage's Escape. Pretty cool, right?
