Today on twitter, Ashes of Creation made an announcement that the verbal NDA on Alpha One testing has been lifted. This will allow alpha one testers to openly discuss their experiences in the current and previous versions of the Alpha Client. While the verbal NDA was lifted, the visual NDA still applies, keeping screen shots and videos of game play under games under wraps until the first non-NDA test on July 9th
During the latest Ashes of Creation Development update, the team at Intrepid Studios showcased some brand new 4k footage featuring 3 newly added raid bosses to Verra.

Recently, a few new articles have surfaced on the Ashes of Creation website, including information about the Cleric Archetype, the new Ashes of Creation Backer Pack - Harvest's Dawn, and a recap of the 2020 Extra Life Event. We cover all of this information and more on the latest episode of Ashes to Go.
The Cleric in Ashes of Creation is primarily a support role with several healing and support abilities, including buffing allies and de-buffing foes.
