Shawl of Astral Balance was a cosmetic accessory in a pre-order pack.[1]

This trailing cloak is the de facto symbol of the diviner's station, and with it comes an air of silent reverence. The ensemble harbors the darkness of the umbra, the radiance of the stars, and the penumbra that lies in between. The diviner knows that even the heavenly bodies themselves adhere to a cycle of balance, thus the Vek must also find their own, lest they tempt ruin.[1]

Cosmetic store

The Cosmetic store enables players to purchase Cosmetics for use in Ashes of Creation.[3]

We plan to include a shop for micro transactions. The shop will only include cosmetic items. Nothing in our shop will ever be pay to win as we believe this practice greatly hurts the MMORPG genre.[6]

All cosmetic store items will be non-tradeable.[8] There will be no gifting mechanism for cosmetic items.[9]

I don't want cosmetic items that can be purchased from the marketplace to be transferable... because it is in a way a transfer of money for potentially something in-game.[9]Steven Sharif

The cosmetic store will offer limited time, limited quantity items to help sustain game development.[10]

  • Equitable cosmetics, both from a quantity and quality standpoint, are achievable through in-game means.[10]

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.[10]Steven Sharif
