The Aela is the Human Race in Ashes of Creation. The Aela is split into 2 different Races, The Kaelar and the Vaelune.
The Kaelar were founded on 3 basic principles, Build, Order, & Civilization. Their empire in the old world was the largest of all, and they have plans to the same in this world. The Kaelar are very loyal to their roots and do not back down from any challenge that's thrown their way.
The Vaelune are much different than the Kaelar. The Vaelune race was founded on Trade, Law, & Hardship. They are a desert dwelling race, and through the ages have became the blade that bend, but does not break. They are veyr savvy negotiators, and have grown into one of the wealthiest empires in Sanctus. Quite impressive as they have very few natural resources to exploit in the desert. Living in such a harsh environment has taught the Vaelune what it means to kill or be killed, so they have adapted to both combat and the deception in the market place.
The Aelan empire is by far the largest nation in all of Verra. There's over eight million Aelan inhabitants, and their borders touch upon every other nation. They have a desire to expand on the seas of Verra, and have the capability to deploy their widely feared armies onto any shore.
This Week, Ashes of Creation announced that there would be a delay in the previously announced alpha test schedule. They stated that the decision was made based off the data they collected in the December and February testing events. Steven stated "As we have been addressing these challenges, my team has determined that additional polish is needed in order to guarantee a smoother Alpha One testing phase, and yesterday I approved this NDA extension." The image below depicts the new Alpha scheduled. For more information on the delay, check out the full article here - An Update on Alpha One Schedule (ashesofcreation.com)
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. However, the cleric is also capable of dishing out damage if you choose to go down that path. Below is a quick recap of the abilities that will be available for the Cleric Archetype for levels 1-10 for the upcoming December Alpha Test.
Also recently showcased was the Harvest's Dawns Backer pack. The Harvest’s Dawn cosmetic addons will be available in the Ashes of Creation shop from November 4, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific until December 2, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific. Don’t forget that the Woe Within the Woodlands addons will be removed on November 4, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific when the new cosmetics swap over.
The Ashes of Creation Team also recently had their 24 live stream charity event for Extralife on the Ashes of Creation Twitch Channel. The amazing Ashes of Creation Community crushed the $20,000 goal and raised $88,546 during the 2020 event that will all be used to benefit Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, CA.
We also received some more insight in the Ashes of Creation lore during the event, as well as leaned that Steven can sing! The team also had several fun events during the stream including a Minecraft build that was very fun to watch. If you missed the event, don't worry, you can check out the recap.
