Ascension is the act of resetting your rank in order to receive greater DPS bonuses for each rank. The Ascension Spell can be acquired for the first time at rank 500 and costs Infinity Tokens to activate.
Ascension only resets your rank - your level, Guardian powers, Infinity Tokens and so on will not change. After ascending, you will temporarily lose your Spells until you have regained the rank necessary to unlock each one, but you will not lose any Spell upgrades you have previously bought. Your Spells will be ready to use as soon as you have unlocked them again.
There is currently no limit to the number of times you can ascend. Each time you ascend, the rank needed to ascend again increases by 100, up to the rank cap of 3000.
It is not possible to 'skip' ascensions or start on a higher rank after ascension by going to a higher rank than necessary. Even if you ascend for the first time at rank 3000, you would still be at A1 rank 1 immediately after doing so.
Ascension Costs & BonusesEdit
|No.||Rank Needed||Token Cost||DPS Bonus per Rank||Rank for DPS Recovery*|
Rank for DPS Recovery: This is the rank required at the new A# to match the rank DPS multiplier you had before ascending. For example, for A0 at rank 500 you have a 11x multiplier; upon ascending to A1 you need to get to rank 250 to get back to the 11x multiplier that you lost by ascending. Note this assumes all other DPS modifiers are the same ( i.e. you have the same number of active Tokens and Guardian powers such as Train Heroes/Conquest/etc.) The first time you reach the DPS Recovery rank after ascending, you won't have the exact same DPS as before because you lost the DPS bonus from the Tokens you spent on ascending.
Further costs and bonuses can be calculated with the formulae below.
Token Cost FormulaEdit
From A1-A6, the token costs are fixed. From A7, token costs increase linearly by 3 million tokens each time, and so can be calculated with the following formula:
(current ascensions - 5) * 3,000,000
DPS Bonus FormulaEdit
DPS bonuses for A1+ can be calculated with the following formula by substituting a for the number of ascensions:
2 + 2^a
