Ashes of Creation

Paragon's Vigil

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

Gleaming plate and amethyst banners meet beneath the cloudless sky, pride and honor made manifest. Great victories, whether diplomatic or on the battlefield, call for equally great celebrations - thus do the guard don their ceremonial armor. Riding out, they are met with a chorus of cheers, but this spectacle is more than mere fanfare. These ceremonies are instrumental in maintaining the morale of the citizenry. To know that stalwart heroes watch over them instills great hope, and helps to secure the happiness of those within the nation, as well as future victories without.

The Paragon’s Vigil cosmetic addons will be available in the Ashes of Creation shop from January 13, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific until February 10, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific. Don’t forget that the Under the Frost addons will be removed on January 13, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific when the new cosmetics swap over.


Vanguard's Hammer

accessory (4) Accessory Cosmetic Skin *

For those entrusted with the critical task of charging across enemy lines on beastback, riders are granted use of this specialized barding. The frame is constructed of the selfsame alloy that composes the armor of the royal guard. As such, it is supremely tough, yet striking to the eye. Few sights are as glorious as a maul of purity and purpose smashing through the flank of a dumbstruck enemy force. In peacetime, it is even more resplendent, its silken drapes billowing proudly in the wind.


Puirgel

pet Pet Cosmetic Skin *

Uneventful and seemingly ceaseless guard duty can take its toll, as boredom is as dangerous as any blade - thus did the guard come upon a solution through the diminutive puirgel. A deceptively intelligent and empathetic creature, the puirgel is trained to accompany and even entertain those of the guard who begin to feel their sanity slowly erode from monotony. Their favorite activity is to watch the royal ceremonies unfold, where they have the best view perched on a pauldron.


Amethyst Boughbite

mount Mount Cosmetic Skin *

A hearty creature possessed of a shimmering purple coat, this herbivore is the prime choice for the cavalry of many a royal guard. With its regal aspect and lofty limbs, it can easily be spotted whether on parade or in battle. Their reassuring presence has been the source of many rallies. Though many would claim its height makes the mount and rider easier targets, its hard beak, crest, and chitinous carapace afford it a great deal of natural protection.


Ward of the Implacable

costume Costume Cosmetic Skin *

The titular attire of the guard donned for ceremony, it is fashioned in the image of the armor worn by a valiant hero who lived in ages past. Intricate engravings dot its many facets, marking ancient deeds of bravery. Being of remarkable quality, this suit is not merely for show, as it is composed of a light but hardy alloy. The more heavily-damaged suits are painstakingly restored, with new engravings bestowed upon them to mark their new conquests.


The Gilded Galleon

Caravan Naval Cosmetic Skin *

For the Gilded Galleon to enter port is indeed a matter of great significance. High-ranking dignitaries and diplomats are ferried across the seas within the dauntless ivory hull of this vessel. With the royal guard present, and a heavily-armed escort of several other ships in attendance, few would even dare dream of attempting an attack. Nothing short of a small armada would be required to secure a chance at boarding the gleaming craft.


Royal Garrison

Building Freehold Building Cosmetic Skin *

The quarters within which the royal guard reside are distinctly marked by the same unmistakable violet hues that accent their gear. A solemn and noble air surrounds the stronghold, and it acts as a beacon to everyone in the city. Bright as their presentation may be, the vast majority of the guard prefer to live humble but fulfilling lives outside their primary vocation.
