Mount skins can be applied to the appearance of mounts that were earned in-game.[2][3][4][5] These are applicable to specific classes (tiers) of mounts.[6]

Acquiring achievements like t3 mounts or t2 mounts to use cosmetics on will require varying degrees of effort, skill and strategy. Once achieved players can use those cosmetics.[9]Steven Sharif

Caravan skins

Caravan skins ("Pimp my caravan") were available in the cash shop (cosmetic store).[11]

  • The skin changes the appearance of an in-game mount and in-game caravan that are hooked up to each other.[12][13]
  • The caravan and mount components of the skin are not able to be utilized separately.[12][13]
  • Building, ship, caravan and mount cosmetics require an in-game item to be obtained first to apply the cosmetic.[2][3]

You'll need your own creature and caravan hooked up to each other, and then the caravan cosmetic skin goes over all of them to make it look like what's pictured. you're not able to split out separately that caravan mount skin, hence why you'd want the separate mount skin if you wanted to ride it independently.[12]Sarah Flanagan

Mount barding

Mount barding (also referred to as Saddles) is armor for mounts in Ashes of Creation. Mount barding is similar in concept to player armor.[15]

  • The higher the level of barding, the better looking it will be.[15]
  • Barding will have multiple components that can be equipped. Each component will increase the stats of the mount, such as hit points and speed.[16][15]
  • Barding cosmetics can only be applied to mounts with barding cosmetic slots.[17]
  • Cosmetic skins may only be applied to barding/saddle items that are earned in-game.[18]
    • Barding skins can not be applied over a mount skin.[19]
    The mount skins are applied to the mount, and barding (think of it like an accessory appearance) can not be applied over the mount skin.[19]Cody Peterson
    • Barding skins' appearance may differ depending on the type of mount.[17]

Providing these limited options that collectors out there like when it comes to achieving and/or purchasing cosmetics. It means something I think when players make that decision to purchase or they go through the rigorous portion of achieving those things in game that it is not just everywhere around them and becomes meaningless at that point.[21]Steven Sharif

Accessories/armor, Buildings, Caravans, Mounts, Pets, and Ships sold in the cosmetic store are skins.[22][23][11]

  • Skins are only be able to be applied to things that have already been earned, crafted or found within Ashes of Creation.[25][6]
    • Certain skins require specific items or item tiers have been achieved in-game before they can be used.[26][3][25][27][2]
Owning cosmetics does not guarantee the acquisition of the item the cosmetic can be used on. Players must still achieve the corresponding item/building.[25]Steven Sharif
  • The lore on store cosmetics is flavor text.[24]
  • The best skins will be in-game achievable.[28]
The best skins will be in-game achievable (obviously “best” is subjective, so I’d say the most ornate and detailed/unique).[28]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic store

Ashes of Creation cosmetic store.[29]

There is going to be legendary cosmetics that can be earned and achieved in the game through the game systems, but that's going to take a significant amount of effort and work; and those cosmetics are going to be on-par with the cosmetics offered in the marketplace... What that does is it provides additional revenue to the company so that we can continue to fund the development of content as well and bridge the divide that not having a box cost would have and not having any pay-to-win mechanics whatsoever.[30]Steven Sharif

The Cosmetic store enables players to purchase Cosmetics for use in Ashes of Creation.[31] The cosmetic store offers limited time, limited quantity items to help sustain game development.[32]

  • Equitable cosmetics, both from a quantity and quality standpoint, are achievable through in-game means.[32]
  • Nothing in the cosmetic store will be pay to win.[33]

Nothing in our shop will ever be pay to win as we believe this practice greatly hurts the MMORPG genre.[33]

  • Cash shop cosmetics will offer a diverse selection of unique looks.[34]

I want to incentivize purchase in the cosmetic shop for sustainability of what expansions we have intended, since we are not a box cost. I want to incentivize purchase by offering limited items: limited time, limited quantity, so you have confidence that when you purchase them, they won't be offered later on in some other way.[32]Steven Sharif

  • All cosmetic store items will be non-tradeable.[35] There will be no gifting mechanism for cosmetic items.[36]

I don't want cosmetic items that can be purchased from the market to be transferable... because it is in a way a transfer of money for potentially something in-game.[36]Steven Sharif
