Through the Lens

It’s unwise, in a land that seems determined to keep its secrets, to rely solely upon the naked eye to seek your truths. To that end, the returning denizens of Verra have blended both ancient tradition and modern techniques to find new ways to peel back the pall of mystery that enshrouds their new home. What they see beyond can unlock and inspire possibilities that are, as of yet, unimaginable.

The Through the Lens cosmetic add-ons will be available in the Ashes of Creation shop from January 12, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific until February 9, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific. Don’t forget that Frozen Festivities addons will be removed on January 12, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific. when the new cosmetics swap over.


Featherwatcher

monthly cosmetics january1920---Accessory

Accessory Cosmetic Skin *

Glass made from the crystalized essence found in volcanic sands can be attuned to enhance the visibility of other essence-infused objects or beings. Scouts often carry spyglasses like this one to help them spot things of interest, and to protect themselves from magical dangers hidden in plain sight.


Glitterling

monthly cosmetics january1920---Pet---Background

Pet Cosmetic Skin *

Arcanists and botanists have had many a heated argument as to whether glitterlings are creatures or golems, but the nature of their existence suggests the possibility of a third as of yet unnamed thing: possessed minerals. When the essence of a creature leaves its body in death, it appears possible that its energy and memories are trapped in the lattice of nearby crystals, bearing forth a new form. Whether that is a good thing depends largely on the mind of the expired creature in question.


Fateborne Nightwing

monthly cosmetics january1920---Mount

Mount Cosmetic Skin *

Fateborne Nightwing are curiously quiet birds that, in legends, owe their flightlessness to a sacrifice made by the eldest among them to save the Py’rai peoples of old. While increasingly rare, their enormity saw them used as mounts in ancient times, though texts recovered from ages old treat their roles more as watchful travelling companions than as pets or beasts of burden.


Crystalgazer’s Raiment

monthly cosmetics january1920---Costume

Costume Cosmetic Skin *

Crystalgazers are notorious and often villainous characters in Py’rai histories, known for their duplicity and selfishness in the wielding of magics that allow them to foresee futures in the flows of essence. While scholars debate whether or not essence itself passes backwards and forwards through the perceived linear march of time, the gazers’ traditional raiments seem designed to dissuade logical thinking, instead inspiring bewitchment and awe.


Prismatic Icebreaker

monthly cosmetics january1920---Transport Naval Cosmetic Skin *

While braving the northern reaches of Verran oceans, bold navigators have discovered frostbound essence, which leaves icefields capable of shredding even the thickest wooden hulls. To further these exploratory journeys, shipwrights have blended carpentry and arcane techniques to bend and shape crystalwood, which can repel the essence in the ice in concert with the hardened metals of the ship’s bow. A byproduct of this process is the aurora-like wake left in the vessel’s path.


Leyline Orrery

monthly cosmetics january1920---Building

Freehold Building Cosmetic Skin *

In some environments, one needs only to seek out bizarre and flourishing biodiversity to discover a leyline nexus. Out among the sand dunes, which may seem lifeless at first, Vaelune scholars have turned to more scientific processes. With the proper arrangement of adequately attuned crystals inside a complex, clockwork machination, these bright scholars are able to map the flows of essence across entire regions.
