Unless you don’t like otters, a new Ashes of Creation trailer shows off a cute otter-like Tidebreaker creature, along with a new video showcasing the animal.The blog goes into lore of the new creature, explaining their behavior and and inquisitiveness:
The Tidebreaker in Ashes of Creation are meant for messengers and can traverse treacherous terrain. Additionally, they can be used as cavalry, so imagine an otter cavalry charge for a moment.
“Kaelar expeditionaries that first discovered these animals took note of their docility, even when openly approached. Preliminary efforts to capture them proved quite futile, as their relatively large size did not rob them of any agility, and a single swipe of their tail could fracture the bones of a grown man. A different approach was required, and luckily for the expeditionary team, the Tidebreakers turned out to be quite inquisitive creatures. It was found that gaining their trust through play proved to be safer and more effective; games of catch involving brightly painted balls of leather and cloth tended to be the most prevalent.”
