Dyes are a cosmetic item in Ashes of Creation.[2]

Tintengebruik

Tinten zijn normaliter items voor eenmalig gebruik die een cosmetische kleur veranderen op bepaalde items/gear.[4]

De Kickstarter- en summer crowdfundingtinten zijn sets van unieke kleuren die niet verkrijgbaar zijn voor spelers die niet hebben geparticipeerd in de crowdfunding. Deze tinten zijn niet op dezelfde manier bruikbaar als normale tinten. Ze worden gebruikt als een override op een andere in het spel verkregen tint.[5]

  • Ze worden vanuit een speler zijn accountmanagementpagina toegewezen aan een character.
  • Ze vergaan niet. Dat betekent dat ze oneindig gebruikt kunnen worden als een override voor bestaande tinten.
  • Als een tint overschreven wordt, wordt het een spelersgebonden tint. Zo kunnen de tinten niet verkocht worden voor in-game winst.
  • Wanneer een getint item verkocht of overdragen wordt, worden de kleuren teruggesteld naar het origineel.

Dyeable items

Dyes only affect tagged portions of armor or cosmetic items.[6]

  • The dyeability of costumes depends on the specific costume.

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.[6]Steven Sharif

Armor appearance

Gear will have appearance slots (Transmutation/Transmog/cosmetic slots) that are used to copy the appearance of an item (in some cases).[7][8]

  • Cosmetic slots can be toggled on or off.[10]
    • This may happen automatically during battles to increase performance.[11]

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.[12]Steven Sharif

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.[12]Jeffrey Bard

Attachments

Attachments are able to be unlocked as flair pieces to armor to create a customizable look.[19]

  • There will be hundreds of attachments available ranging from a small clasp to the front plate of a breast plate.[19]

Obtaining cosmetics

Some cosmetics can be obtained in-game:[2]

Achievements may unlock some cosmetics.[2]

Not all cosmetics are obtainable through in-game means. These will be purchasable through the cosmetic store.[2]

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.[20]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic store

The Cosmetic store enables players to purchase Cosmetics for use in Ashes of Creation.[2] The cosmetic store offers limited time, limited quantity items to help sustain game development.[22]

  • Equitable cosmetics, both from a quantity and quality standpoint, are achievable through in-game means.[22]
  • Nothing in the cosmetic store will be pay to win.[23]

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.[22]Steven Sharif

Pets, Mounts, Costumes, Armor, Buildings and Accessories sold in the cosmetic store are skins.[24]

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.[23]

All cosmetic store items will be non-tradeable.[28] There will be no gifting mechanism for cosmetic items.[29]

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.[29]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic items

Cosmetic items allow players to customize their character in-game.[30]

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

Cosmetic items that produce in-game cosmetic effects will also be available.[31]
