In times of skins following the current pop culture, it's always refreshing to see a game keep to its own theme and enrich itself through its skins, rather than making it more garish.
Once a small band of heretical shamans driven from their home settlement after a spate of kidnappings, the Seers of the Blackroot have since been continuing their bloody practice among the gnarled trunks and groves of the deep forests.
Living in relative secrecy, they have slowly regained their strength and shall one day pour forth from the woods like ravenous rodents, seeking to sacrifice any and all to sate the dark forces they worship.
The Seers of the Blackroot cosmetic add-ons are available in the Ashes of Creation shop from August 4, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific until September 1, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific. Don’t forget that the Zenith's Advent addons will be removed on August 4, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific when the new cosmetics swap over.
The skins include accessories, pets, costume cosmetics, and caravan skins, all of them in the theme of the rotting side of nature.
It's a refreshing change of pace seeing nature be represented in this way in fantasy. Usually, nature in fantasy is always seen as a force of good, fighting against one corruption or the other. These skins show that nature just is, and knows neither good nor evil. There are always two sides to a coin.
This is especially true for Ashes of Creation. As a game that leans towards high fantasy, it would be a shame if it fell into the same trap others have fallen into before, when they have already made so many creative changes to the MMO genre.
