Costumes

Vestments of the Runecarvers pre-order pack cosmetic costume.[1]

The costume cosmetics that are included in each month's pre-order set are indeed a full piece, and when you put it on it will cover your entire appearance. You will not be able to mix and match/toggle those pieces individually (other than your helmet) when you're wearing the entire costume. This is partially why there is a separate category for accessories - those are able to be worn/equipped on a more individualized basis, so you can mix and match to your liking![2]Sarah Flanagan

Costumes are available for purchase from the cosmetic store.

  • Costumes don't have a level restriction.[3]
  • Costumes are not gender locked.[4]
  • Costumes are one piece outfits that cover an entire (gear) set.[2][5][6][7]

Full costumes do not mix and match pieces.[7]Steven Sharif

The costume cosmetic does not come in pieces. It will cover your entire set.[6]Margaret Krohn

Dyeable items

Dyes only affect tagged portions of dyeable armor or cosmetic items.[15]

  • The dyeability of costumes depends on the specific costume.[15]

Outside of wanting to keep maybe some identity from a lore perspective; for example if you have like a white lion's suit of armor, you may not want that white lion suit of armor to be black or blue. So, it's possible. It depends on the costume itself.[15]Steven Sharif

Skins

Cinderhorn Steer pre-order pack cosmetic mount skin.[16]

Providing these limited options that collectors out there like when it comes to achieving and/or purchasing cosmetics. It means something I think when players make that decision to purchase or they go through the rigorous portion of achieving those things in game that it is not just everywhere around them and becomes meaningless at that point.[17]Steven Sharif

Pets, Mounts, Costumes, Armor, Buildings and Accessories sold in the cosmetic store are skins.[18]

The best skins will be in-game achievable (obviously “best” is subjective, so I’d say the most ornate and detailed/unique).[24]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic store

Косметический магазин позволяет игрокам приобретать косметические предметы для использования в Ashes of Creation.[26]

Мы планируем запустить магазин с микротранзакциями. Магазин будет содержать только косметические предметы. Ничего в этом магазине никогда не будет pay to win так как мы верим что подобная практика сильно вредит жанру MMORPG.[28]

Все предметы из косметического магазина будут недоступны для торговли.[29] Для косметических предметов не будет предусмотрено механизма передачи в дар.[30]

Я не хочу чтобы купленные косметические предметы можно было передавать... Потому что это в какой-то мере передача реальных денег за потенциально что-то внутри игры.[30]Steven Sharif

Сравнимые косметические предметы, как по качеству, так и по количеству, можно будет получить внутри игры.[31]

Я хочу поощрить покупки в косметическом магазине для поддерживаемости дополнений которые мы задумали, так как мы не берём единоразовую плату за игру. Я хочу поощрить это предлагая ограниченные предметы: ограниченные по времени и количеству, так чтобы при их покупке вы были уверены, что они не появятся позже в каком-либо другом качестве. Однако, я хочу убедиться что сравнимые косметические предметы, как по качеству, так и по количеству будут доступны посредством выполнения внутриигровых достижений. Потраченные время и усилия должны радовать результатами.[32]Steven Sharif

Cosmetics

Rime and Regal‎ pre-order pack cosmetics.[19]

We are very transparent in the business model of subscription with cosmetic only marketplace... I respect and understand the opinion of rather having a box price in-place of cosmetics, but that is not the direction I’ve decided to take. After weighing the benefits to the game and its population, I believe a lower barrier to entry is healthier in the long run, and the steady content release and quality of the product will sustain the retention for subscription and in-turn provide a healthier content release strategy for Ashes.[33]Steven Sharif

Cosmetics provide a wide array of customization in Ashes of Creation.[34]

All skin cosmetic items are cosmetic items only and do not grant the user any other benefit. The lore text is flavor text, and background of the creatures and items in the world of Verra.[19]
  • Equitable cosmetics, both from a quantity and quality standpoint, are achievable through in-game means.[32] Cosmetics achievable in-game will be on-par, and in the case of legendary skins, even more elaborate than shop items.[35][36][33]
I want to make sure that equitable cosmetics both from a quantity and quality standpoint are achievable through in-game achievements. Time, effort should let you be happy with what you can accomplish.[32]Steven Sharif
In my opinion quality of cash shop cosmetics should be equal to in game achievable cosmetics, but offer a diverse selection of unique looks.[37]Steven Sharif
The most grand looking cosmetics will be from in-game achievment only.[38]Steven Sharif
From an armor standpoint, we cut armor sets up into many different pieces. These pieces can sometimes be used as part of other sets, that may include helmets, wrists, gloves etc. So while you will not see an achievable white version of the corvid castigator set in the game for example, you may see its shoulder piece used in another set, or its leggings, or wrist piece used in another set (not every piece as to form the whole set, but perhaps a couple pieces). This would be difficult to notice at first glance, due to the material, texture and color variation used, but this modular approach to content creation makes achieving a wide variety of looks achievable for an MMORPG of our size.[35]Steven Sharif
  • Different variants of store purchased cosmetic creatures (Pets and Mounts) may exist in the wild.[40][41]
While the exact same skin will not be available again in the future once it's gone from the Shop, these skins are all variants of creatures that you can expect to see across Verra - so perhaps you will find one with a similar style in-game![40]Sarah Flanagan
  • Cosmetics can be used by all races but there may be slight variations to make them work with the body builds of each race.[11][12]
  • There will not be mascot looking/furry cosmetics.[42]
It's important to remember, Ashes is a NO-BOX COST subscription only game, with an optional cosmetic marketplace. This achieves a few things from a monetization model. Having a lower barrier to entry for players to try the game when they don't have to fork out $60 for the box price is good, our box price is 0$. This also places an emphasis on the game's retention and our continual updates and content creation to keep players playing and staying subscribed (a put your money where your mouth is sort of philosophy for us as a company). It also means players don't have to spend $60 everytime there is an expansion.[35]Steven Sharif
Is there an answer that satisfies everyone? Nope. And that's ok. We are open and transparent with our philosophies and business model. You know what you are getting with Ashes and to me, given my experiences in other games, it is a nice breath of fresh air.[35]Steven Sharif
