Obtaining/Changing the Ascension classesEdit

For level 0 to 10Edit

You need to have completed Kunark Ascending: A Nightmare Realized or used the The Essential Kunark Guide to be able to speak to the following Ascension masters:

When you speak to them the first time you will unlock the Ascension class. To change your Ascension class, talk to them again.

For level 10 to 15Edit

The trainers in Obulus Frontier can't raise your level beyond 10, but the new trainer Sunspear will. She can be found in the Coliseum of Valor. Sunspear can change your ascension class or increase your level, but does not give out Guided Ascension scrolls.

You can also use a Celestial Ascension scroll to instantly increase any ascension class by 1 level at any time without visiting a trainer. They are awarded from completing quests for the 3 factions in the Plane of Magic.

The Planes of Prophecy Overloaded Ascension Potion can also be used to level ascension classes. Using the potion increases your current Guided Ascension points to the cap (currently 21 million) and keeps it there for the 30 minute duration. Your level will go up automatically while it is running as you earn the required experience; no need to visit a trainer. When the potion expires your Guided Ascension experience will be full at 21 million and will start to decrease normally from that point as you earn experience. These potions are available from claim in game if you own the Premium or Collector's Edition of the expansion.

The Classes Edit

All 26 Classes can get all 4 Ascension Classes once they are level 100.

Ascension classes are the apotheosis of a facet of energy, and are the gateway to ascended power.

  • Elementalist: Wielders of the opposing forces of fire and ice, Elementalists have the power to rain down destruction or degrade the defenses of an opponent. Initiates of this class convert ability damage to cold.
  • Etherealist: Masters of arcane and planar energies. Etherealists deal with the manipulation of ambient or latent magical power. Etherealists convert ability damage to magic.
  • Geomancer: Sometimes the most effective form of persuasion is the application of brute power. Geomancers are able to bring literally staggering force down on an opponent. These juggernauts convert ability damage into crushing.
  • Thaumaturgist: Most things have some form of life energy, and Thaumaturgists are able to manipulate and control that energy, twisting or bolstering it to meet their needs. Blood Mages convert ability damage to disease.

Ascension FormsEdit

Each Ascension class grants the character the ability to shift into an avatar of that Ascension, converting all damage done from any ability that does not deal damage based on your weapon's damage type. This conversion will also convert most pet and dumbfire pet damage.

  • If a Combat Art says it deals Melee Damage then it is affected by your weapon damage and will not change its damage type while in Ascension form.

The Ability is found on the "Ascension" tab in your Knowledge book.

  • Note: if you don't see the tab use the Default UI

LevelingEdit

Leveling Overview:

  • From level 0 up to 10
    • you need kill monsters or finish quests to convert "Guided Ascension XP" into actual "Ascension XP". Once you got all XP you need for the level, you have to talk to a master to actually level up.
  • From level 10 to 15
    • you can use Celestial Ascension which is rewarded by several quests. That item levels you up by 1 ascension level.
    • alternately, you can convert "Guided Ascension XP" into actual "Ascension XP" and when it is time to level up, the new trainer is Sunspear the Ascension Trainer at ( 165, 0, -59 ) /waypoint 164.50, 0.00, -59.27 in the Coliseum of Valor. She can change your ascension class or increase your level, but does not give out Guided Ascension scrolls.

Leveling from 0 up to 10Edit

Note:The leveling of Ascension XP changed with the update of December 6, 2016 and with the release of Planes of Prophecy

Note: The leveling system is to be revamped into a normal leveling uncap experience system to that of adventure leveling for 1-20 ascensions upon CD xpac release

Ascension XP can only be gained when you have Guided Ascension XP left to gain. You gain some Guided Ascension XP every hour or when you use a scroll (Guided Ascension). To earn Ascension XP from Guided Ascension XP you can either kill monsters or finish quests.

You will be able to gain Ascension XP once you unlocked an Ascension class by speaking to one of the masters.

  • You gain available ascension experience similar to how vitality is gained, about 20.000 per hour online or offline.
  • Additionally, you can acquire Guided Ascension that further increase that amount instantly.
  • the maximum of Guided Ascension XP is 21,000,000.
  • Members get a 20% bonus to all guided ascension experience earned
  • the Guild Buff for level 200+ guilds grants a 10% bonus
  • you get a 100% bonus for each ascension class of level 10.
  • Note:You can get only 1 scroll a day, does not matter if you switch Ascension form or used the scroll before you talk to a other Master
  • Guided ascension scrolls only stack to 50

When you use a Guided Ascension it will add 500,000 (or 600,000 if member) of Guided Ascension experience. You can use as many scrolls as you like, just keep in mind that the maximum of Guided Ascension XP is 21,000,000. The Ascension masters will only grant you a single guidance scroll every 18 hours, after you picked up the last one, but these scrolls may be collected and studied at your convenience. The most efficient path is to level only 1 Ascension class to 10 before you level another one.

The half the time of leveling of Ascension classes once a class reaches level 10 works as follows:

  • Once you reached level 10 on one Ascension class
    • a scroll will give you 1,100,000 (the double amount) of Guided Ascension experience
    • the hourly gained Ascension XP get's doubled to 40k/hour => 960k per day * 7 days = 6,720,000
    • the Cap of 7.000.000 Guided Ascension XP remains
  • Once you reached level 10 on two Ascension classes
    • a scroll will give you 1,600,000 (the tripple amount) of Guided Ascension experience
    • the hourly gained Ascension XP get's doubled to 80k/hour => 1,920k per day * 4 days = 7,680,000 (Over the 7mil cap by 680k)
    • the Cap of 7.000.000 Guided Ascension XP remains
  • Once you reached level 10 on three Ascension classes
    • a scroll will give you 2,100,000 (the quad amount) of Guided Ascension experience
    • the hourly gained Ascension XP get's doubled to 160k/hour => 3,840k per day * 2 days = 7,680,000 (Over the 7mil cap by 680k)
    • the Cap of 7.000.000 Guided Ascension XP remains

Weekly Ascension MissionEdit

A new Kunark Ascending weekly mission is now available that rewards at least 5 Ascension Scrolls!

  • Speak with Katorz ((527, 252, 1292)) in Obulus Frontier within Crusaders' Cave and accept any of his available weekly missions and the Ascension weekly mission, "For More Than a Bit of Coin" will be automatically added to your quest journal if your character has unlocked an Ascension level.

XP needed Edit

  1. for the first ascension class
    1. Level 1 to 2: 3 million XP - 3 scrolls/days
      • to advance Level, one MUST speak with the original trainer, or all additional experience gained will be not be converted from adventure XP to Ascended XP.
    2. Level 2 to 3: 5 million XP needed to a 8 million XP total - 5 scrolls/days
    3. Level 3 to 4: 8.2 million XP needed to a 16.2 million XP total - 7 scrolls/days
    4. Level 4 to 5: 13 million XP needed to a 29.2 million XP total - 13 scrolls/days
    5. Level 5 to 6: 13.2 million XP needed to a 42.4 million XP total - 12 scrolls/days
    6. Level 6 to 7: 13.4 million XP needed to a 55.8 million XP total - 12 scrolls/days
    7. Level 7 to 8: 13.6 million XP needed to a 69.4 million XP total - 13 scrolls/days
    8. Level 8 to 9: 13.8 million XP needed to a 83.2 million XP total - 13 scrolls/days
    9. Level 9 to 10: 14 million XP needed to a 97.2 million XP total - 12 scrolls/days
  2. for the second ascension class (gain double the amount of guided ascension xp the previous class)
    1. Level 9 to 10: 7 million XP needed to a 97.2 million XP total - 45 scrolls/days total from 1 to 10
  3. for the third ascension class (gain double the amount of guided ascension xp the previous class)
    1. Level 9 to 10: 3.5 million XP needed to a 97.2 million XP total - 23 scrolls/days total from 1 to 10
  4. for the last ascension class (gain double the amount of guided ascension xp the previous class)
    1. Level 9 to 10: 1.75 million XP needed to a 97.2 million XP total - 12 scrolls/days total from 1 to 10

The numbers given means you need at least 90 days from 1 to 10 for the first ascension class, if you pickup a scroll every day.
to get all 4 classes you need to spend 90 + 44 + 23 + 12 =170 days minimum

Leveling from 10 to 15Edit

Sunspear the Ascension Trainer at ( 165, 0, -59 ) /waypoint 164.50, 0.00, -59.27 in the Coliseum of Valor allows you to change your Ascension class, and can also be used to level your Ascension classes prior to level 10 or after. If you are working on the expansion for the first time (cannot access Sunspear yet), you can still use the old Ascension masters to level up from 10-11, etc... or to switch to a different class.

To level up past level 10 in the Planes of Prophecy you may use:

Each Faction of the 3 Factions in Plane of Magic gives 3 Celestial Ascension scrolls.

That means:

  • you don't have to burn through the old scrolls to reach the next Ascension level.
  • you just need to use 1 Celestial Ascension (CA) to level from 10 to 11 or 11 to 12 and so on.
    • When consumed this potion increases the active Ascension class of the caster by 1 to a maximum of 15.
  • You don't need to wait until your experience bar is full, you can level before it is full.
  • If you run out of CA while working on the first faction, do NOT switch, the factions are mutually exclusive and the achievement for completing them all is easier to achieve if you do them each in turn. Instead, go to Nye'Caelona and buy a Tear of Ascension.

Changing Ascension ClassesEdit

Changing Ascension Classes is as simple as going to the appropriate Ascension master and picking up the class. All of the progress made on your current Ascension class is saved, and you will pick up right where you left off when you return to that class. Any Ascension abilities you have earned will remain in the Ascension tab in your spell book, though you will not be able to access those abilities until you return to the matching Ascension class.

Ascension Synergies (Combos)Edit

Every Ascension ability has a synergy Ascension ability of another class. If both of these abilities are applied within a short duration to the same target, an extra effect will be applied based off of the ability that finished the combo.
For more information please see Ascension Combos

Ascension SpellsEdit

The Ascension Spells are not granted automatically.
The Apprentice Version of the spells is given by the masters when you speak to them to gain the next level.

Upgrades of the spells can be purchased [NPC name needed if there is one], get them crafted or researched. The following tradeskill classes can craft Ascension spells:

Recipes can be purchased from Scribbleclaw in Obulus Frontier at ( 77, -165, -722 ) /waypoint 77, -165, -722 in Twark

They are able to craft the following tiers of Ascension Spells:

  • Journeyman
  • Adept
  • Expert
  • Master
  • Grandmaster
  • Ancient
  • Celestial

The Ascension Spells are in the "Ascension" Tab of the Knowledge book.

Ascension Spell TiersEdit

Scribing an ascension spell will require you to possess the previous tier of knowledge! For example to scribe an "Adept" you will need to already possess the "Journeyman" spell knowledge. Some tiers of ascension spells may only be learned via research.

  • Note:Yes that means you can't scribe master when you don't have the Expert Version in your Knowledge book
  • As of 11/13/18 it is believed that now adept and master spells crafted only require 1 page and it has been seen that the illegible pages are no longer no trade and are sellable on broker but is yet to be 100% confirmed until xpac release as it is only seen and doable on beta atm

All Tiers of spells:

  1. Apprentice: Given by the master when you speak to them once the XP is full
  2. Journeyman: Crafted or researched or [buying not possible?]
  3. Adept: researched or you need 10 "Illegible Scroll Page" of the spell to combine it to a "Incomplete scroll" to craft the spell once
  4. Expert: Crafted or researched
  5. Master: researched or you need 10 "Illegible Scroll Page" of the spell to combine it to a "Incomplete scroll" to craft the spell once
  6. Grandmaster: need another drop of the master to get it Crafted or researched
  7. Ancient: Crafted, but requires [information needed]
  8. Celestial: Crafted

AdornmentsEdit

There are some "special" Adorns out there that can benefit Ascension classes:

At the completion of the Time Is Short subquest for the Kunark Ascending Crafting Timeline, the crafter will receive two purple adornment recipes. One of these recipes will be only craftable by their crafting class, the other is a recipe that is shared with their entire subclass (Craftsman, Outfitter, Scholar).

The recipes need to be crafted on the Forge of Brell (or the house item version of it), and requires

  • a Blank Luclinite Rune
  • 3 thalumbral root
  • 3 umbrite
  • 3 bornite nodule
  • 5 fuel (Thaumic Coal or thaumic incense and so on)

The runes and the purple adorns are fully tradeable, and the recipe can be commissioned.
