Ashes of Creation

Pilgrimage of the Diviner

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

Through scalding sun or biting winter, the Vek diviners persevere in the pursuit of astral knowledge as they have for hundreds of cycles. To the diviner, the stars contain the weave of all future histories; the threads only need be touched and followed to understand. Thus, they roam the land in search of the outer realm's most ancient secrets.

The Pilgrimage of the Diviner cosmetics will be available as addons in the Ashes of Creation shop from June 5, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific, until July 3, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific. Reminder that the Beastmasters of Nik√ľa bundles will be removed on June 5, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific during the swap over.


Shawl of Astral Balance

Monthly Cosmetics - 2019 - 4 - Accessory (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.


Burrow Hawk

Monthly Cosmetics - 2019 - 4 - Pet (1) Burrow hawks are winged forest creatures well-suited to hunting in the air, or swiftly catching prey on the ground. For the Vek, they serve the role of a companion, as the nomadic journey of diviners is often a solitary one. They are attentive but curious creatures, a fitting personality for their masters. Many Vek also take to rearing burrow hawks as would-be guardians or scouts, as their innate nature makes them highly adaptable. It is not uncommon to come across a Vek hunter or scholar, seemingly alone, only to find a large burrow hawk patiently watching from afar.


Bearded Balemane

Monthly Cosmetics - 2019 - 4 - Mount (1) The bearded balemane has been an indispensable aspect of Vek society, whether for travel, construction, or war. Paint is used to differentiate a chosen balemane's purpose. Few beastmasters outside the Vek willfully go out to tame a wild balemane, for they have a fierce temperament to match their foreboding stature. If trampled underfoot by its hooves, adversaries should take great caution to avoid being impaled. A tamed balemane, however, is a hardy beast that will fight tooth and hoof for its rider.


Scryer of Ebon Skies

Monthly Cosmetics - 2019 - 4 - Costume (1) The shamanistic seers of the Vek are the spiritual leaders of their society, and their wisdom is held in high regard. These oracles view day and night as a vast, unceasing scripture, and dedicate themselves to its studies. Generations of sages have contemplated the origins of the stars, whether created by forgotten gods or living on as divine beings all their own. Regardless, the seers maintain a watchful eye as the pages of the sky turn.


Nomadic Reliquary

Monthly Cosmetics - 2019 - 4 - Caravan (1) Diviners require a place to store their accumulated writings and supplies as they make their travels, and this reliquary serves that purpose. It plods along, slowly but surely, driven by a single Vek steed. Additionally, the caravan is equipped with an astrolabe, enabling the scholar to find his way while also allowing for accurate reading of the stars.


Altar of Silence

Monthly Cosmetics - 2019 - 4 - Building (1) Those seeking to join the ranks of the seers must show they possess a latent affinity for divining. Though analog tools are indispensable, a spiritual connection is also necessary. Thus, novices enter this altar, where they sit amid the quiet and attempt to bring themselves closer to the heavens. Promising aspirants have claimed to have glimpsed the night sky clearly and more keenly within their mind than with their own eyes, even if only for moments. Only then will a novice be ascend into their ranks.
