Pre-order packs

Heat and Harmony pre-order packs.[1]

Ever present in the world, flame is a sight to behold - both a purveyor of ill omens and a beacon of hope in equal measure. Through learning, however, those who wish to bend the will of fire to their own may do so. Only those who revere it are worthy, lest they be consumed by their own hubris.[1]

Pre-order packs are available from the Cosmetic store.[3]

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.[4]Steven Sharif

Pre-order pack information

Pre-order pack cosmetic skins cycle monthly and are never available again for purchase. Apart from the cosmetic skins, the packages can also include subscription time, embers (virtual currency for future cosmetics when the game is live), access to alphas and betas, and other perks such as name reservation.[5]

  • There are no pay-to-win gameplay benefits from any purchasable items.[5]

These packs are completely optional and provide no vital components for succeeding in Ashes.[5]Steven Sharif

  • Cosmetics achievable in-game will be on-par, and in the case of legendary skins, even more elaborate than shop items.[5]
  • Pre-order pack cosmetics will look similar across differing races.[6]

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.[5]Steven Sharif

Pre-order pack addons

Purchasers of pre-order packs have the ability to purchase future individual pre-order pack cosmetics (at the same or lower level as their pack purchase) as add-ons in the month that they are on sale.[5][7]

  • Kickstarter and Summer crowdfunding backers can also purchase pre-order pack cosmetics as add-ons.[8] This only applies to the current month's cosmetics and beyond.[9]
  • In the month a pack is purchased, only the upgrade tiers will be shown on the shop. Individual items will be visible in future months.[10]

Pre-order pack upgrades

Cosmetics owned prior to upgrading a pre-order pack are retained.[11]

  • Cosmetics in the new package tiers in the month of the upgrade are gained.[11]
