Pets are available in game from level 1.[2]

There is going to be cool, cute, interesting pets that are available; and some may feel very fae-like.[3]Steven Sharif

Pet types

There are two types of pets in Ashes of Creation.[4]

The intention is to make each pet slot unique, so having 1 cosmetic slot, 1 item pet and 1 class skill pet.[5]Steven Sharif

Cosmetic pets

Cosmetic pets are available for purchase from the cosmetic store.[6]

Combat pets

Combat pets may be tamed from certain creatures in the world.[7]

  • Combat pets will not increase a player's power and will require a sacrifice from the player.[8]
  • Combat pets will have a horizontal progression, not a vertical one.[8]

It will participate in combat. It will allow you different options sometimes, but it won't necessarily increase your power and... you'll be sacrificing something for it.[8]Jeffrey Bard

Pet progression

Some pets will be levelable and will have gear available to them.[9]

Pet drops

Mounts and pets are dropped by world bosses on a very rare basis.[10]

Naming pets

Mounts and pets are able to be named by players.[11]

Cosmetic store

The Cosmetic store enables players to purchase Cosmetics for use in Ashes of Creation.[13]

We plan to include a shop for micro transactions. The shop will only include cosmetic items. Nothing in our shop will ever be pay to win as we believe this practice greatly hurts the MMORPG genre.[15]

All cosmetic store items will be non-tradeable.[17] There will be no gifting mechanism for cosmetic items.[18]

I don't want cosmetic items that can be purchased from the marketplace to be transferable... because it is in a way a transfer of money for potentially something in-game.[18]Steven Sharif

The cosmetic store will offer limited time, limited quantity items to help sustain game development.[19]

  • Equitable cosmetics, both from a quantity and quality standpoint, are achievable through in-game means.[19]

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.[19]Steven Sharif
