Rime and Regal‎ pre-order pack cosmetics.[1]

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.[2]Steven Sharif

Cosmetics provide a wide array of customization in Ashes of Creation.[3]

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.[1]
  • Equitable cosmetics, both from a quantity and quality standpoint, are achievable through in-game means.[5] Cosmetics achievable in-game will be on-par, and in the case of legendary skins, even more elaborate than shop items.[6][7][2]
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.[5]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.[8]Steven Sharif
The most grand looking cosmetics will be from in-game achievment only.[9]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.[6]Steven Sharif
  • Different variants of store purchased cosmetic creatures (Pets and Mounts) may exist in the wild.[11][12]
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![11]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.[13][14]
  • There will not be mascot looking/furry cosmetics.[15]
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 every time there is an expansion.[6]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.[6]Steven Sharif
I know there have been quite a few questions regarding cosmetics over the years. As we get further along in development, we'll be providing more specific information regarding what specific buildings, items, etc., you can place each cosmetic on. We'll update this for all past items.[18]Margaret Krohn

Artistic style

Ashes of Creation will have a higher graphical fidelity than most western games. It will not be too stylized or "cartoony".[21]

We can push the limits a little bit on the graphical fidelity, especially using Unreal Engine 4... My desire was not to see very cartoony games. I'm not a big fan of highly stylized art.[21]Steven Sharif
It's not to say that people can't do steampunk well. I've enjoyed some steampunk stuff. I'm a very high fantasy oriented type of storyteller; and the inspiration for Ashes obviously comes from my pathfinder campaigns that I ran long ago; and those are always set in a high fantasy world. So it just compromises what I believe is the perspective of the storytelling in the environment.[22]Steven Sharif

NPC variants

There will be variants of the monthly cosmetics for NPCs and Mobs.[6][10]

We've mentioned this before about what the cosmetics do, but all of those pre-order pack items allow us to create the world. They're the NPCs in the world. They help us make NPC variants. The clothing and costumes are costumes that we'll be putting on NPCs. You're actually helping us create the world.[24]Margaret Krohn

Obtaining cosmetics

Some cosmetics can be obtained in-game:[25]

Achievements may unlock some cosmetics.[25]

Not all cosmetics are obtainable through in-game means. These will be purchasable through the cosmetic store.[25]

Cash shop cosmetics will be limited in quantity, limited in time for purchase. They will be unique, but you will also have extremely difficult to gain cosmetics in game as well as unique cosmetics that look great and better... There will be a lot of cosmetics that are achievable in the game because that is a very fun aspect of MMO play.[26]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic store

Ashes of Creation cosmetic store.[27]

There is going to be legendary cosmetics that can be earned and achieved in the game through the game systems, but that's going to take a significant amount of effort and work; and those cosmetics are going to be on-par with the cosmetics offered in the marketplace... What that does is it provides additional revenue to the company so that we can continue to fund the development of content as well and bridge the divide that not having a box cost would have and not having any pay-to-win mechanics whatsoever.[7]Steven Sharif

The Cosmetic store enables players to purchase Cosmetics for use in Ashes of Creation.[25] The cosmetic store offers limited time, limited quantity items to help sustain game development.[5]

  • Equitable cosmetics, both from a quantity and quality standpoint, are achievable through in-game means.[5]
  • Nothing in the cosmetic store will be pay to win.[4]

Nothing in our shop will ever be pay to win as we believe this practice greatly hurts the MMORPG genre.[4]

  • Cash shop cosmetics will offer a diverse selection of unique looks.[8]

I want to incentivize purchase in the cosmetic shop for sustainability of what expansions we have intended, since we are not a box cost. I want to incentivize purchase by offering limited items: limited time, limited quantity, so you have confidence that when you purchase them, they won't be offered later on in some other way.[5]Steven Sharif

  • All cosmetic store items will be non-tradeable.[20] There will be no gifting mechanism for cosmetic items.[28]

I don't want cosmetic items that can be purchased from the market to be transferable... because it is in a way a transfer of money for potentially something in-game.[28]Steven Sharif

Pre-order packs

Pre-order packs are available from the Cosmetic store.[27]

We offer cosmetics for players who wish to support the project early. The exclusive nature of the limited availability is something I think collectors value. If you buy cosmetics as an MMO player, I know I enjoyed if the cosmetic is rare and not every girl at the party is wearing the same dress. In addition, these cosmetics are used to populate the world through NPC variants and color/texture changes so their offering aligns with our production schedule. The good thing about these packs is they contain no P2W advantages and there is no box cost, so from a mechanics standpoint you do not need to buy them to excel in the game on launch. And also, there are comparable and subjectively more grand cosmetics achievable in game as well.[10]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic binding

All cosmetic store items will be non-tradeable.[20]

Pay to win

Ashes of Creation will not be pay to win.[30][7][31]

Ashes of Creation will not be pay to win, that is our pledge to the community. One of the core principles we set forth with Ashes of Creation is a very strong desire to maintain the game's even playing field.[31]

A lot of developers and companies have come along in the past- and I've been hit by this too- and they've said we're not going to have pay-to-win and then boom they roll out some pay-to-win. We have consistently said we won't be pay-to-win and in the pre-orders that we provide and even in the Kickstarter there were absolutely zero pay-to-win components whatsoever. So not only will we talk the talk but we will walk the walk as well.[7]Steven Sharif

Because we are a non-box purchase game, meaning there is no box price to play Ashes of Creation, it is only a subscription; and that's beneficial because it reduces the barrier of entry and we want a high population obviously; but at the same time one of the ways we augment the revenue flows to sustain constant updates and new chapter releases and additional content within the game is through a cosmetic-only marketplace; and that means absolutely no pay-to-win whatsoever; and that will be adhered to forever.[30]Steven Sharif

Inventory slots, RNG loot boxes and XP potions are considered pay-to-win.[32][33][34][35]

We will not use a loot box system for cosmetics either. We currently have a cosmetic store that offers limited time, limited quantity items to help sustain game development. These items are purely decorative and do not offer any in-game benefits.[32]

My definition of pay-to-win is really anything that affects the in-game economy, the in-game action pool, your abilities and/or skills... In my opinion the inventory slots and the XP potions would be considered pay-to-win.[34]Steven Sharif

Q: Will there be RNG boxes?
A: I dislike RNG. Archeage made me loath rng monetization gimmicks.[35]Steven Sharif

Transferring cosmetics between alts

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

The account management page is used to assign or reassign cosmetics to characters within an account.[19][40][41][42]

  • Cosmetics can be reassigned to other characters (alts), but can only be active on one character at a time.[19][41][42]
  • There will likely be a cooldown for reassigning cosmetics between characters.[19]


Cinderhorn Steer pre-order pack cosmetic mount skin.[43]

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.[30]Steven Sharif

Pets, Mounts, Armor, Buildings and Accessories sold in the cosmetic store are skins.[44]

  • The flavor text next to store items relates to the lore and background of creatures and items in the world of Verra.[1]
  • Caravan skins change the appearance of an in-game mount and in-game caravan that are hooked up to each other.[47][48]
    • The caravan and mount skin components are not able to be utilized separately.[47][48]
  • The best skins will be in-game achievable.[49]

The best skins will be in-game achievable (obviously “best” is subjective, so I’d say the most ornate and detailed/unique).[49]Steven Sharif

Racial skins

Racial skins enable a player to change their character's racial appearance.[50][51]

  • Racial skins transform the race of the character to that skin. The original racial appearance of the character is entirely replaced.[52]
  • Racial skins can be toggled on and off.[51]

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.[52]Steven Sharif

Racial skins are not costumes. This means that armor and character customization is possible on these.[53]

  • Skin color customization.[54]
  • Racial skins appear along with any costume appearances.[55]

There are plans to create other racial skins.[56]

  • Some potential future ideas include undead and werewolf (lycan) skins.[57]

Freehold building skins

Freehold building skins were offered as Kickstarter and Summer crowdfunding rewards and are currently available in pre-order packs.[58][59][60][61]

In Alpha-2 we will have our freeholds available to test; and while we have the designs in place for how processing interacts for gathering and how processing feeds the crafting stations, some of that stuff might change: The allotment of buildings that can be placed on the freehold, the way that the buildings get placed on the freehold, whether or not we even scrapped the idea of dedicating a portion of the Freehold towards the house. And because of that, because of the design limbo that's still pending our testing environment in Alpha 2, we've not wanted to give definitive definition around how those cosmetics will be applied to the freehold buildings in the event that that might change based on iteration. But to give you perspective there, it's mainly going to be focused around the freehold house and then also having the ability to apply the skins to some of the workstations as well.[63]Steven Sharif

Caravan skins

Caravan skins ("Pimp my caravan") are available in the cash shop (cosmetic store).[65]

  • The skin changes the appearance of an in-game mount and in-game caravan that are hooked up to each other.[47][48]
  • The caravan and mount components of the skin are not able to be utilized separately.[47][48]
  • Building, ship, caravan and mount cosmetics require an in-game item to be obtained first to apply the cosmetic.[16][17]

You'll need your own creature and caravan hooked up to each other, and then the caravan cosmetic skin goes over all of them to make it look like what's pictured. you're not able to split out separately that caravan mount skin, hence why you'd want the separate mount skin if you wanted to ride it independently.[47]Sarah Flanagan

Ship skins

Ship skins apply to certain ship types.[66]

Mount skins

Mount skins can be applied to the appearance of mounts that were earned in-game.[16][17][42][68] These are applicable to specific classes (tiers) of mounts.[45]

Pet skins

Cosmetic pets are available for purchase from the cosmetic store.[44]

  • Cosmetic pets can be summoned from level 1.[16]

Cosmetic pets, since non-functional from a gameplay perspective, can be summoned at lvl 1.[16]Steven Sharif

Guild hall skins

Accessory skins

Accessories in Ashes of Creation refers to:

Mount barding skins

Mount barding cosmetic reward for backing at the Leader of Men level.[73]

Mount barding (also referred to as Saddles) is armor for mounts in Ashes of Creation. Mount barding is similar in concept to player armor.[74]

  • The higher the level of barding, the better looking it will be.[74]
  • Barding will have multiple components that can be equipped. Each component will increase the stats of the mount, such as hit points and speed.[75][74]
  • Barding cosmetics can only be applied to mounts with barding cosmetic slots.[76]
  • Cosmetic skins may only be applied to barding/saddle items that are earned in-game.[77]
    • Barding skins can not be applied over a mount skin.[71]
    The mount skins are applied to the mount, and barding (think of it like an accessory appearance) can not be applied over the mount skin.[71]Cody Peterson
    • Barding skins' appearance may differ depending on the type of mount.[76]

Housing decorations

Housing decorations are available for purchase from the cosmetic store.

Backer only armor skin

All Kickstarter backers receive a unique armor skin set.[78]


Vestments of the Runecarvers pre-order pack cosmetic costume.[79]

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![80]Sarah Flanagan

Costumes are available for purchase from the cosmetic store.[59]

Full costumes do not mix and match pieces.[84]Steven Sharif

Armor appearance

Alpha-1 female plate armor 3D render.[89]

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.[89]Steven Sharif

Gear is intended to be realistic in appearance.[90][91]

  • There will not be "oversized" weapons.[92]
  • Armor will not be overly sexual in appearance.[91]
    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.[90]Steven Sharif
    • Some armor and costumes will be more revealing than others, but there will not be nudity in the game.[93]
    There might be sliders, but there are not gonna be naked sliders.[93]Steven Sharif

Armor will take on a racial appearance.[94] Weapons will scale in size based on race.[95]

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.[96]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.[13]

Players can change gear colors using dyes.[97][98]

Helmet display can be toggled on and off.[99]

  • Hair will likely be masked if helmet display is toggled on.[100]

Particle effects are used to denote the importance and rarity of some weapons.[101]

Crafters are able to influence what their crafted items will look like.[102][103]

Weapons are able to be sheathed.[104][105]

Appearance slots/Transmogs

Gear will have appearance slots (Transmutation/Transmog/cosmetic slots) that are used to copy the appearance of an item (in some cases).[106][107]

  • There are rules when applying cosmetics to specific items, unlike costumes, which don't have level restrictions.[17]
  • Cosmetic slots can be toggled on or off on their character by the player.[108]
  • A "default player appearance" may be automatically applied during sieges or other large scale battles to improve client-side performance.[109][110]
Cosmetics, whether purchased from the shop or earned in game, are an important component of MMORPGS I personally enjoy; and there's a lot of collectors out there who spend a great deal of time either in-game achieving these things or spend money purchasing them from the cosmetic only marketplace; and we don't want to demean or reduce that achievement or that expenditure. So it's going to be situational where the default appearance will be applied and can be activated.[109]Steven Sharif

Gear attachments

Attachments are able to be unlocked as flair pieces to armor to create a customizable look.[111]

  • There will be hundreds of attachments available ranging from a small clasp to the front plate of a breast plate.[111]

Items on back and belt

Backpack sockets (slots).[112]

The idea is to kind of move away from the mundane kind of application of belts in previous MMOs where they don't really have a lot of character so to speak. But in reality you know as an adventurer you come with a lot of tools and things that you have to use out in the wild in order to achieve what you're trying to achieve. So we wanted to kind of represent that on your character and give you something that can actually be tangible for your character and see there. I think it adds a lot of character and flavor to your identity.[113]Steven Sharif

Mage character with material components for spell casting attached to its belt.[114]

A big component of the MMORPG that - half of that you know acronym is RPG role-playing game. And in order to role-play you need to be able to represent kind of what your character is doing in that world and you know part of what animation is doing is creating these sockets on the let's say the belt or the back that you know can plug in certain types of props or items that are created by the character team, like Carson, you know might be a scroll tube, it might be a potion, it might be whatever: Those players will have the ability as we've discussed in the past will have the ability to select what they want to be represented in those sockets and then animation will make sure that jibe well in movement.[112]Steven Sharif

Back slots include.[104]

Belt slots (hip slots) include.[116][104]

Players can set the appearance priority for the items they wish to show.[116][117][118] Only one item can show at a time, and that is determined by player choice.[104]

There'll be a priority system behind that that'll determine... do I show the Bow if the Greatsword is unequipped or do I show the Polearm if the Greatsword is unequipped.[118]Jeffrey Bard

Some ranged or melee abilities require a specific weapon to be equipped. Weapons that are equipped in the character's ranged or offhand slots will automatically swap in and out as required by the skill.[119][120][121]

Character appearance

Facial adjustments in the Alpha-2 character creator (first pass).[123]

There is a great variation that's going to be available from a character standpoint when creating your character, especially around the face. Whether it be the shape of the jawline, the cheeks, the ears, the nose, the lips. You know we want to provide a lot of options and an agency to the player to customize their character appearance.[124]Steven Sharif

Character appearance can be customized in the character creator (CC)[126] and via in-game salons/barbershops.[127][128]

We want there to be a lot of room for people to manifest their own identity, to role play how they want to from an appearance standpoint. There's going to be parameters within which you will be able to customize a character. We want the culture and the identity of the races to exist in a range that makes them easily identifiable from other players and other cultures. So, because of that, we have to have a spectrum you can exist on. There will be a lot of hair variants you can do, body art tattoos that you can apply. You'll be able to play with the scales of the facial structure, the bones, the height, width, the body fat percentage. You'll be able to add body hair on different parts of the body. If you want to have hair on your feet, you can dial that up.[129]Steven Sharif
  • Character models are focused on realism.[130]
  • A player will see a generic character before customization.[131]
  • Character designs will have influences from a wide range of cultures, such as European, African and Asian.[132]
  • Lolis will not be in the game.[133][134]
  • Sliders and other controls, such as color palettes, will offer flexibility in customization but there will be limits based on race, gender, and the artistic style guidelines that the developers are adhering to.[135][136][133][137][138]
There's going to be constraints to the sliders, so that was one of those big questions as work began on the character creator: How much agency do you want to allow pulling like the lower lip all the way down in this weird deformed look, or having like [an] offset cheek that's just asymmetrical to the side of the face. There's not going to be the ability or agency to create those types of weird character things. However you will have the ability to move, slide, change, grow, decrease all those components, but they'll be kept in a more reasonable and presented way in the same sense you won't be able to change the appearance of the dwarven, nor the Dünir or the Niküan races to, in my opinion, create what would be traditionally considered a Loli character.[133]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic items

Cosmetic items allow players to customize their character in-game.[139]

  • Eye color.
  • Skin color.
  • Hair color.
  • Hairstyles.
  • Tattoos.
  • Scars.

Cosmetic items that produce in-game cosmetic effects will also be available.[140]


Modular Cleric armor concept by Jeff Delierre and Keith Kovach.[98]

Dyes in Ashes of Creation may refer to:

Dyes are craftable.[142]

Dye usage

Dyes are one-time use items that apply a cosmetic color change across all dyeable items that are equipped on a player's character (paper-doll).[143][144][145]

  • Two dye channels are provided per character that together influence up to 50% of the gear that is equipped by that character.[143]
    • The first dye channel is for lower grade dyes that influence 10 to 20% of armor appearance on that character.[143]
    • The second dye channel is for higher tier dyes that influence up to 30% of armor appearance on that character.[143]
  • The original design allowed individual items to be dyed with different dyes.[144]
One of the things that we want to do- again talking about player agency- is we want to give them the ability to kind of change the appearance of their armor sets that they're wearing; and the way we've approached the dye solution is through a channeled system. We have a two channel dye system where the first channel is a lower grade dye that it has influence over between 10 to 20 percent of your overall armor appearance; and then the second channel dye is a higher tier dye that you have to acquire; and by doing so you can influence the remaining thirty percent- up to thirty percent of that armor appearance: So up to a total of fifty percent influence that can occur across all the pieces that you wear. Now one unique approach to the way we're doing this dye system is we're not allowing individual dyes to be applied on individual items, but instead we keep a cohesion across the set by applying that dye channel to your character; and when you equip a piece with your overall character it will assume that dye channel from your paper doll. So you apply the dyes to your character and when you equip a piece of item it will take that dye and it will influence the channel over that particular piece so that it comes into alignment. And what the reason that we're doing that is there's a lot of options with regards to customization for your character appearance, whether it be through transmog, through costumes, through mixing and matching sets and pieces that you can wear; and what we want to avoid is the rainbow effect where these pieces do not look good together and it creates the clown that's walking down the street.[143]

The Kickstarter dyes are sets of unique colors that are not obtainable by players who did not participate in Crowdfunding. These dyes are not usable as normal dyes are. Instead they are used to override the color of another dye obtained in game.[146]

  • They are assigned to a character from a user's account management page.[146]
  • They do not expire, so they may be used to continually override dye colors.[146]
  • Once a dye has been overridden it becomes a bound dye to that character, so the colors cannot be sold for in-game benefit.[146]
  • When an item is sold or transferred, color changes are reverted.[146]

Dyeable items

Dyes only affect tagged portions of dyeable armor or cosmetic items.[147]

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.[147]Steven Sharif

Seasonal cosmetics

There are seasonal cosmetics in Ashes of Creation.[25][149]

  • Seasonal cosmetics can be obtained in-game.[25]


Emoji adds additional flare either for chat or character representation (social animations).[150][151][139]

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.[153]

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.[154][155]

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.[154]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.[159]

  • 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.[45]
  • Skins earned in Apocalypse will be available to apply at certain tiers, levels and/or access points within the MMORPG.[45]

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.[45]Steven Sharif

These cosmetics reflect the lore of Ashes of Creation Apocalypse, which is set before the fall.[155]

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.[155]Steven Sharif

It would be like your ancestors kept these curios for you.[155]Jeffrey Bard

Examples of some Kickstarter rewards will be included in Ashes of Creation Apocalypse.[160]
