Cinderhorn Steer pre-order pack cosmetic mount skin.[1]

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.[2]Steven Sharif

Pets, Mounts, Costumes, Armor, Buildings and Accessories sold in the cosmetic store are skins.[3]

The best skins will be in-game achievable (obviously “best” is subjective, so I’d say the most ornate and detailed/unique).[10]Steven Sharif


Rime and Regal‎ pre-order pack cosmetics.[4]

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.[11]Steven Sharif

Cosmetics provide a wide array of customization in Ashes of Creation.[12]

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.[4]
  • Equitable cosmetics, both from a quantity and quality standpoint, are achievable through in-game means.[14] Cosmetics achievable in-game will be on-par, and in the case of legendary skins, even more elaborate than shop items.[15][16][11]
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.[14]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.[17]Steven Sharif
The most grand looking cosmetics will be from in-game achievment only.[18]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.[15]Steven Sharif
  • Different variants of store purchased cosmetic creatures (Pets and Mounts) may exist in the wild.[20][21]
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![20]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.[22][23]
  • There will not be mascot looking/furry cosmetics.[24]
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.[15]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.[15]Steven Sharif

Artistic style

В Ashes of Creation реалистичность графики будет выше, чем в большей части западных игр. Графика не будет чересчур стилизованной или "мультяшной".[28]

Мы можем сделать графику ещё реалистичнее, особенно используя движок Unreal Engine 4... Я не хочу видеть слишком уж мультяшную игру. Я не большой поклонник стилизованной графики.[28]Стивен Шариф

Obtaining cosmetics

Некоторые косметические предметы могут быть получены в игре:[30]

Достижения могут предоставлять косметические предметы.[30]

Не все косметические предметы будут доступны внутриигровыми средствами. Такие предметы можно будет приобрести в косметическом магазине.[30]

Предметы из косметического магазина могут быть ограниченными в количестве или во времени отведенном на покупку. Они будут уникальными, но в игре всё равно будут косметические предметы которые очень трудно получить, а также косметические предметы которые выглядят отлично и даже лучше чем косметическом магазине... В игре будет доступно множество косметических предметов так как это очень увлекательный аспект игры в MMO.[31]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic store

Косметический магазин позволяет игрокам приобретать косметические предметы для использования в Ashes of Creation.[30]

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.[13]

Все предметы из косметического магазина будут недоступны для торговли.[27] Для косметических предметов не будет предусмотрено механизма передачи в дар.[34]

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.[34]Steven Sharif

Сравнимые косметические предметы, как по качеству, так и по количеству, можно будет получить внутри игры.[35]

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.[14]Steven Sharif

Pre-order packs

Наборы предзаказа доступны в косметическом магазине.[32]

Cosmetic binding

Все предметы из косметического магазина не будут доступны для продажи.[27]

Pay to win

Ashes of Creation не будет pay to win.[36]

"Ashes of Creation не будет pay to win, это наше обещание сообществу. Один из ключевых принципов установленных нами для Ashes of Creation это очень сильное желание сохранить равные возможности игроков."

Вопрос: Будут ли пристутствовать коробки с рандомными предметами?
Ответ: Мне не нравится RNG. Archeage засавил меня ненавидеть трюки монетизации через RNG.[37]Steven Sharif

Место в инвентаре и зелья опыта считаются pay to win.[38]

Я определяю pay to win как всё что влияет на внутриигровую экономику, набор внутриигровых действий, навыки или способности игрока... Мне кажется, место в инвентаре и зелья опыта считаются pay to win.[38]Steven Sharif

Transferring cosmetics between alts

Ashes of Creation web site design preview (WIP).[39]

Cosmetics can be reassigned to other characters (alts) within an account but can only be active on one character at a time.[26][40][41]

  • There will likely be a cooldown for reassigning cosmetics between characters.[26]

Racial skins

Racial skins enable a player to change their character's racial appearance.[43][44]

  • Racial skins transform the race of the character to that skin. The original racial appearance of the character is entirely replaced.[45]
  • Racial skins can be toggled on and off.[44]

You're changing your race over to that, which means that you won't look uniquely different if you were a Vek angel or a Human angel.[45]Steven Sharif

Racial skins are not costumes. This means that armor and character customization is possible on these.[46]

  • Skin color customization.[47]
  • Racial skins appear along with any costume appearances.[48]

There are plans to create other racial skins.[49]

  • Some potential future ideas include undead and werewolf (lycan) skins.[50]

Freehold building skins

Themed freehold skins were offered as Kickstarter and Summer crowdfunding rewards and are sold through the cosmetic store.[51][52]

Caravan skins

Скины караванов ("Прокачай мой караван") доступны в косметическом магазине.[53]

Ship skins

Ship skins apply to certain ship types.[54]

Mount skins

Rare mount that can only be obtained via breeding two tamable creatures through the animal husbandry profession.[55]

Similar in looks to his scalerunning counterpart, this rare animal husbandry mount is only possible to achieve through breading two tameable creatures elusive in the lands of Verra.[55]Steven Sharif

Mounts are obtained through an early quest that is available to players in starting areas.[41]

We kind of want mounts to be ubiquitous for people.[65]Peter Pilone

There are going to be classes of mounts; and you will be able to achieve skins in the game or you will be able to achieve different types of those classes and summon them.[63]Steven Sharif

Mounts will have rarities that they are either bred or acquired. These rarities may influence mount skills and visual effects, such as seasonal variations.[66]

Land mounts

Gliding mounts

Flying mounts


Aquatic mounts

Crowdfunding mounts

Cosmetic pets

Cosmetic pets are available for purchase from the cosmetic store.[3]

Guild hall skins

Guild halls serve as a focal point for a guild, offering a host of benefits and customization options.[68]

  • Guild halls may be placed on guild freeholds or within nodes.[69][70][71]
    • In-node guild halls may only be claimed by patron guilds of that node. These have different perks and benefits to halls placed on freehold plots.[71]
    • When a guild reaches a certain level, its guild master is granted a guild freehold certificate to enable placement of a guild hall.[69]
  • A guild hall only houses a single guild.[74]

Guildhalls are the ultimate expression of a guild's power! In Ashes these structures will serve as focal points for a guild, offering any guilds who construct them a whole host of benefits as well as customization options.[68]


Vestments of the Runecarvers pre-order pack cosmetic costume.[75]

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![76]Sarah Flanagan

Costumes are available for purchase from the cosmetic store.

Full costumes do not mix and match pieces.[80]Steven Sharif

The costume cosmetic does not come in pieces. It will cover your entire set.[79]Margaret Krohn

Accessory skins

Accessories are cosmetic skins purchasable from the cosmetic store.[3]

  • Accessories only cover a specific slot.[79]

Mount barding skins

Mount barding cosmetic reward for backing at the Leader of Men level.[83]

Mount barding (also referred to as Saddles) is armor for mounts in Ashes of Creation. Mount barding is similar in concept to player armor.[84]

  • The higher the level of barding, the better looking it will be.[84]
  • Barding will have multiple components that can be equipped. Each component will increase the stats of the mount, such as hit points and speed.[85][84]
  • Barding cosmetics can only be applied to mounts with barding cosmetic slots.[86]
  • Cosmetic skins may only be applied to barding/saddle items that are earned in-game.[87]
    • Barding skins' appearance may differ depending on the type of mount.[86]

Housing decorations

Housing decorations are available for purchase from the cosmetic store.

Внешний вид снаряжения

Alpha-1 female plate armor 3D render.[88]

We want to be realistic with the application of particular types of armor, such as plate armor. In this regard for the different sexes there's a fine line that has to be drawn between accentuating the form of the sex as well as making it somewhat realistic and actually applicable to the environment.[88]Steven Sharif

Gear is intended to be realistic in appearance.[89][90]

  • There will not be "oversized" weapons.[91]
  • Armor will not be overly sexual in appearance.[90]

We're going for kind of a more realistic look; not necessarily realistic setting, but we want our characters to have weight and kind of feel like they're there.[89]Джеффри Бард

I'm more of the mind that it wouldn't really serve a purpose to have bikini plate armor, just in like reality, if you're going to have armor, it should be protective. I think from a fashion statement is enjoyable for some people, but it's a kind of an immersive issue.[89]Steven Sharif

Armor will take on a racial appearance.[92]

Each race is getting its custom geo pieces, which then will share thematic components such as color palette, attachments, design filigree. Those types of things will get shared across the geo but generally you're going to see unique races with unique geo.[93]Steven Sharif

  • Cosmetics can be used by all races but there may be slight variations to make them work with the body builds of each race.[22]

Players can change gear colors using dyes.[94][95]

Helmet display can be toggled on and off.[96]

  • Hair will likely be masked if helmet display is toggled on.[97]

Particle effects are used to denote the importance and rarity of some weapons.[98]

Weapons are able to be sheathed.[99]

Crafters are able to influence what their crafted items will look like.[100][101]

Appearance slots/Transmogs

Снаряжение will have appearance slots (Transmutation/Transmog/cosmetic slots) that are used to copy the appearance of an item (in some cases).[102][103]

  • There are rules when applying cosmetics to specific items, unlike costumes, which don't have level restrictions.[25]
  • Cosmetic slots can be toggled on or off by the player.[104]
  • A "default player appearance" may be automatically applied during sieges or other large scale battles to improve client-side performance.[105][106]

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse cosmetics

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse cosmetic rewards

All of the skins attained in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse will be usable in the Ashes of Creation MMORPG.[107]

Progression and experience tracking for participation in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse testing entitled players to earn unique cosmetic rewards. These earned rewards will carry over in player's accounts to live launch of the MMORPG.[108][109]

One of the ways we want to give back to the Community in participating in this testing is allowing for progress, quests, achievements rewards to be gained in Apocalypse... You will have rewards and quests and achievements that you and your participation and your performance in that game, whether it be the Castle Siege, the Horde Mode or the Battle Royale will earn you cosmetics. There will be costumes. There will be mounts to earn. There will be housing and furniture. There will be emotes. There will be weapon variants. A lot of these are what we have in production for our project Ashes of Creation, we apply some variants and skins for and make them only available through participating in helping us test these different game modes. And they will carry over to your account on the MMORPG.[108]Steven Sharif

The account used for Apocalypse is the same account used for the MMORPG. Unique skins earned in Apocalypse will be added to the MMORPG as rewards for helping to prepare for the Alpha and Beta stages of Ashes of Creation.[113]

  • Cosmetic skins are only be able to be applied to things that have already been earned, crafted or found within the Ashes of Creation MMORPG.[5]
  • Skins earned in Apocalypse will be available to apply at certain tiers, levels and/or access points within the MMORPG.[5]

So it's not that you'll be able to equip necessarily an item at level one. These are all cosmetic skins. Again we are not about the pay-to-win or pay-to-convenience life. What we want to do instead is as you earn, craft, or find equipment in the MMORPG, these skins that you've earned in Apocalypse will be available at certain tiers, levels and/or access points. So for example, we have different grades of mounts right. We have the base one land mounts. We have the the Royal mounts. We have the flying mounts if you're a mayor or King or Queen. We have legendary mounts. These classes of mounts will have available skins associated with those particular classes... If you have the Ramstider skin that you've earned from Apocalypse, you'll be able to apply that to your first land mount, which will probably be earned within the first five levels you'll earn a land mount. However if you have let's say for example the Gryphon, which will be a glideable mount. I'm sorry what's the name of the what's the name of the night one. The midnight- is the midnight bird or something like? The Nighthunter Gryphon. I think that's it. If you have that skin you'll only be able to apply that skin to a Royal mount so you'll still have to earn these things. Remember our position is that of: You need to earn these things in Ashes first. They're not purchasable or earned outside in Apocalypse and you're granted that immediately. These are skins that you apply to the things you earn in Ashes.[5]Steven Sharif

These cosmetics reflect the lore of Ashes of Creation Apocalypse, which is set before the fall.[109]

One thing that we announced to our alpha one backers that I know they love clarity on is that we'll also be including progression and experience tracking for participation and testing that will entitle them to some unique cosmetics as well that reflect on the lore of this setting, which is before the fall. So you'll be able to acquire some armors that reflect some of the ancient cultures of Verra that you will earn and hold for live launch.[109]Steven Sharif

It would be like your ancestors kept these curios for you.[109]Джеффри Бард

Examples of some Kickstarter rewards will be included in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse.[114]
