Harvest's Dawn, Cleric, Extra Life Recap & Episode 12 of Ashes to Go



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.

We took a deep dive on all of this information and more on Episode 12 of Ashes to Go

Intrepid End Partnership with My.Games, Self-Publish Ashes of Creation in Europe

Intrepid have ended their partnership with MY.GAMES, who where previously responsible for publishing Ashes of Creation in Europe, as well as customer and operational support.

Instead Intrepid is self-publishing Ashes of Creation in all regions and expanding with a new office in Amsterdam, where EU operations for the game will be handled. As part of this expansion, Intrepid is hiring several community management positions.

When we first launched our partnership with MY.GAMES (previously My.Com and Mail.Ru) in 2018, our aim was to provide the best customer and operational support for our European and Russian players. The logistics and operational components surrounding EU/CIS publishing is complex and a significant responsibility. At the time, it made the most sense to partner with an established publisher for these regions. As we have grown as a company and have expanded our capabilities it made sense to reevaluate our strategies and ultimately expand the responsibilities of Intrepid Studios to become a global publisher, leading that initiative with bringing excellent service for our playerbase and community management that focuses on respecting our fans.

We have learned a lot from our partnership with MY.GAMES, and we wish our friends there all the best as we have mutually decided to part ways. Looking ahead, we’re excited to announce that Intrepid Studios will be opening European offices in Amsterdam to help support our publishing operations in the EU/CIS regions. We have recently posted open positions for our new EU offices, and look forward to hiring the best and brightest in true Intrepid fashion.

We know many MY.GAMES players will have questions regarding the future of their Ashes of Creation accounts, and we have answered these below in our FAQ. If you have any further questions, please feel free to message our Support team, and they will get back to you in a timely manner. The planned transition process is already underway, and both MY.GAMES and Intrepid Studios are committed to ensuring the process is as seamless as possible. More information will be provided in the coming weeks on the migration process.

Thank you so much for your continued support. Our success is owed in no small part to the glorious community of players who have shared their love for Ashes. We know new adventures await us, and we hope you’ll continue to lend your voice in helping us create Ashes of Creation.

Sincerely,

Steven Sharif
