Stash Gameplay

In Stash, the players can create and customize a character choosing from four races and four unique classes. Every player gets their bedroll, which is the base of operations, but you can upgrade it to any of available buildings, such as tents, houses and castles. The players can decorate and design a unique interior and exterior. The base also serves as a "stash" where players collect their valuables and show off various trophies. They may also build usable tools to craft or entertain themselves and their friends.

Stash features a vast tile-based world, which looks like a game board in tabletop or miniature gaming. That allows the players to travel the world more accessible, faster and more straightforward. Points of Interest represent dungeons, mines, towers, caves, camps and others. All the players can interact with such places freely to explore them more or to ignore them. Some dungeons are procedurally generated; however, some of them are hand-made by the developers and contain unique valuables and bosses. This aspect of the game is the primary way to acquire the best loot. The treasures can include weapons, armour, jewellery, magical artefacts, clothing, crafting materials, pets, mounts, collectables and works of art.

Crafting in Stash requires the players to gather materials in the world or create them by breaking down items. The players can interact with various tools and buildings on their bases to craft multiple items and acquire multiple types of valuable resources. The players can use crafted items for themselves, trade it with others and sell it on the global market. Some players can improve their base even further to mine additional resources and generate more in-game currency and craft more expensive items. The game allows such players to focus purely on this gameplay aspect.

Clans are a political and a social feature of Stash. The players can form a Clan, establish visual themes of their choice and compete with others for global dominance. Clans can gain levels, abilities, powers and fame through its members' actions. Most major zones have outposts that serve as hubs for adventuring in the area. You can find vendors there, as well as various transportation methods and other standard services, and clans and individuals can conquer an outpost and rule it as they wish. The rulers can set policies, maintain vendors and services and is responsible for the defence. They can also change various visual features, and their purpose is to attract more adventures to the area. That way, the outpost can earn more resources and in-game currency.

Player-versus-player combat is one of the core features in Stash, and the players can challenge others to a duel, or queue up in a matchmaking solo or as a group. The game features a unique snapshot system, and each time the players enter a PvP battle, they use a snapshot of their character from the very beginning of the event. That way, you can preserve the original state of your characters without risking valuable items and gear pieces.

Stash fits both casual and hardcore players due to diversity of the in-game features in the massive persistent world. The players can explore various challenges as a group or alone, and a wide range of the in-game customization features allow them to develop their unique playstyles.
