You'll learn how to ascend your heroes via the Temple of Ascension in this guide to AFK Arena Ascension. By sacrificing some Heroes here, you will be able to upgrade your Heroes to the next tier. To progress further in the game, you must ascend your Heroes.

What is Ascension?

Ascension is the process of upgrading your Heroes' tier, stats, and level cap. To ascend a Hero in your account, you must sacrifice some of your Heroes.

Each faction has faction-specific costs. Also, the higher the ascension tier, the more resources are required. Upon ascending, all resources and gears spent on the sacrificed heroes will be transferred to your bag.

In the Ascension menu, the first hero you choose is the hero you ascend. Next, you will sacrifice one of the Heroes you choose.

How to ascend AFK Arena heroes

AFK Arena's hero ascension is dependent on the hero's faction. There are three different ascension groups, each with different rules, requirements, and restrictions:

  • Basic ascension for Lightbearers, Maulers, Wilders, Graveborn.
    • There is another difference here between legendary and ascended heroes. Legendary heroes can only be ascended to the Legendary+ tier. Ascended heroes can be ascended up to 5-star Ascended tiers.
  • Special ascension for Celestials and Hypogeans.
  • Soul fusion for Dimensional heroes.

These are general factions. They have the same ascension costs for each upgrade.

Celestials and Hypogeans ascension guide

AFK Arena has two special factions: Celestials and Hypogeans Hypogeans. Ascending Heroes in these two Factions requires a lot more work as it requires more copies of the same Hero. As a result, these special factions require fewer sacrifices and have a more straightforward process. But it's a much slower and expensive one as you will have to use Stargazing to get your hands on Celestials and Hypogeans.

Dimensionals ascension guide (Soul Fusion)

Dimensional heroes are an entirely different story. To ascend a Dimensional Hero, you must soul-fuse them with a non-Dimensional hero. The two heroes will then share the same Ascension Tier, but you can use only one of them in the same formation or the same team of formations. The challenge with Soul Fusion is picking the right combination of heroes that you don't intend to use together.

To be able to use both heroes, you will have to use a dimensional key on their soul fusion link.
