Ashes of Creation is an open-world MMORPG game by Intrepid Studios, currently officially in the Alpha stage of development. There have been bits and pieces of information trickling in, and some prospective players have been planning their first characters. It is a good idea to know how that works in any game, and doubly so in an MMO. In Ashes of Creation, players can pick one of the eight archetypes, which can then be mixed with another later, resulting in 64 possible class combinations. That’s why we have prepared this article explaining the archetype and class combinations in Ashes of Creation.

All Class Archetypes in Ashes of Creation

As mentioned, there are eight distinct Archetypes in Ashes of Creation. You pick your first one at the start of the game. This will be considered your primary Archetype and it cannot be changed later on. Then at level 25, you will be able to choose your secondary Archetype. This can be any one of the eight once again, including the same one as your primary. The difference is that you will be able to change your secondary Archetype as needed, though not on the fly. 

The combination of these two Archetypes is what will be referred to as your Class. Before we delve into specific Class combinations, these are the eight available Archetypes in Ashes of Creation:

  • Bard — The tactical buff-oriented arcane support Archetype.
  • Cleric — The healing and utility-focused arcane support Archetype.
  • Fighter — The maneuverable martial damage-dealer Archetype.
  • Mage — The ubiquitous arcane damage-dealer Archetype.
  • Ranger — The ranged and dual-wielding martial damage-dealer Archetype. 
  • Rogue — The utility-based, thieving martial damage-dealer Archetype.
  • Summoner — The role-versatile arcane summoner Archetype.
  • Tank — The tough and sturdy martial tank Archetype.
