The Tip of the Spear

Military might. The projection of power. The Aelan Empire’s golden age saw the kingdom span the continent of Vandagar from shore to shore. Through well-organized martial armies and an unparalleled naval force, the humans of Aela forged the largest nation in Verran history. The Kaelar, the progenitor of that once great Aelan kingdom, seek to reclaim their former glory during Verra’s reconstruction.

The Tip of the Spear cosmetic add-ons will be available in the Ashes of Creation shop from August 10, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific until September 7, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific. Don’t forget that Thunder at the Gate addons will be removed on August 10, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific when the new cosmetics swap over.

    Any update on what the freehold cosmetic can go on? Any timeline of when we might hear more about what they all go on?

    Sorry @Vaknar but we are going to keep chiming about this every month until we get an answer :D I still can't see a great reason to withhold this info - you would do a service to the community to push out an answer. We aren't asking for an Alpha 2 release date here (though loads do...) - just a core principle of the game. Nothing physical, tangible that we can touch - just an answer. Make it happen!

    I will however say, like the skins. Lots of character and detail - Verra is really building great variety.

    You can read what Margaret Krohn (our Community Marketing Lead) has said on this here

    What Margaret said still remains true.

    I'll add this to Margaret's statement 😉:
    The freehold system interacts with a lot of other systems within Ashes of Creation. Many of the systems involved in such an ambitious MMORPG such as this one create a web of interactions with one another. The decisions the design team makes with the Freehold system will affect many other systems and decisions down the line, so they really want to make sure they get it right.

    We are much further along in this process than we were several months ago, and we really hope to have an answer for you soon!

    Regardless, you can rest assured that we have your back. We hear you, and if you're displeased with the design decision regarding freehold cosmetics, we will make it right ^_^

    I'd like to add clarification for the Field Marshal’s Command Accessory Cosmetic Skin:

    This cosmetic item, when applied, will affect both the shoulder and back slots ^_^

    The costume gave me some Kabuki vibes. I'm diggin' it.

    I mean I like it, but I also feel it looks kind of basic. Though when I saw the 3d render of the guise of negotiator, it made me regret not buying. So maybe this is within my interest enough to buy the pack this time.

    Stunning, as always.

    While this cat is a pet, my hope is that there will be a few Big Cat mounts along the way ;-)

    I got the cloak. I buy a lot of cloaks without hoods since the Py-Rai update. Will probably pick up the cat pet and the horse charger too. Horse charger interests me thanks to the red theme - Matches my other accessories.

    Thanks for your hard work and dedication.

    Will cosmetic necklaces be seen on top of armour? Or will the chest armour cover the cosmetic necklaces?
  • I'd love to see some weapon designs. I wonder if we'll ever get weapon cosmetics, too.

    We will/have! People who participated in APOC were able to earn weapon skins for ashes.

    I believe the kickstarter also has a backer only weapon skin.

    I'm sure we'll see weapon skins in the game and probably some added to the cash shop when we see the game go live.
