Ascension Rewards

Jump to: navigation, search

Ascension Rewards are items or tattoos you receive after completing an ascension.

Tattoos

At the beginning of an ascension, you may unlock a new tattoo when you open the letter from King Ralph XI. Multiple tatoos can be unlocked at the same time if you fulfil the requirements for multiple at the same time.

  • If this is the first time you have ascended as a class, including special challenge path classes such as Avatar of Boris, you will receive the respective class tattoo at the start of the ascension.
  • If your previous ascension was a normal ascension of any type, you will receive a numerical tattoo, up until your twelfth completed normal ascension.
  • If your previous ascension was a hardcore ascension of any type, you will receive a hardcore numerical tattoo, up until your twelfth completed hardcore ascension.
  • If your previous ascension was the first time you completed a hardcore ascension with a particular class, including special challenge path classes such as Avatar of Boris, you will receive a sparkling version of the class tattoo, unless the ascension was Oxygenarian.
  • If your previous ascension was the first time you completed a hardcore oxygenarian ascension with a particular class, you receive a super sparkling version of the class tattoo. You will need to complete an Oxygenarian and non-Oxygenarian hardcore ascension as each of the main 6 classes to obtain all of the tattoos. You will also receive the Oxygenarian tattoo for your first completed Oxygenarian ascension with any class.
  • If your previous ascension was a hardcore Teetotaler ascension, you will receive the teetotaler tattoo.
  • If your previous ascension was a hardcore Boozetafarian ascension, you will receive the boozetafarian tattoo.

Items

You may receive items as a reward for completing an ascension, which is received upon defeating the "final boss" of the ascension, which is usually the Naughty Sorceress but this differs for some special challenge paths.

  • You will always receive an Instant Karma if you defeat the final boss at level 13, regardless of ascension type. This is checked when the fight begins, so if defeating the final boss levels you to 14, you'll still receive the karma.

Normal Ascensions

Normal Standard Ascensions

  • If the ascension is a normal Standard 2019 ascension, you will receive a chalk item from the Chalk Chostume based on your current class:

Special Challenge Paths

When you ascend into a special challenge path, you choose to undertake a run with unique and/or unusual restrictions. Completing a special challenge path rewards a Thwaitgold statuette themed to the path - for example, at the end of a Bees Hate You run, you receive a Thwaitgold bee statuette.

In hardcore, the end boss of some special challenge paths also drop stainless steel equipment. Starting with the Slow and Steady path, some challenge paths also have an in-season bonus reward, also dropped by the boss.

The One Crazy Random Summer path awards a class-specific piece of equipment, for both Normal and Hardcore runs.

If the run qualifies for a leaderboard, the character will also receive an extra Instant Karma upon breaking the prism and freeing the King. Some variants are chosen by relatively few players, and thus it's relatively easier to get on those leaderboards. This applies to all paths, even though only paths under standard restrictions have visible leaderboards in the Museum.

Note that Standard, Teetotaler, Boozetafarian, Oxygenarian, Bad Moon and special challenge paths are all mutually exclusive with each other, and Bad Moon can only be performed in Hardcore.

History

  • Prior to the conclusion of the Valhalla Invasion, equipment and consumable rewards were received at the start of your next ascension, not upon defeating the Naughty Sorceress. If that new ascension was under the Bad Moon sign, then these rewards were placed in a smoldering box. As such, it is now impossible to acquire any new smoldering boxes.
  • Furthermore, only runs following a Hardcore run received a pork elf goodies sack. You otherwise received a single pork gem.


  • In 2018 the Standard ascension rewards were gabardine (for Normal) and fiberglass (for Hardcore). Old Standard runs started in 2018 will still earn these rewards upon completion.
