What is Ascension?
Ascension is a game mechanic to increase your servant's maximum level and unlock new skills, art and battle sprites. Having a higher maximum level allows the Servant to be leveled up even further.
Currently, you can Ascend a servant a maximum of 4 times.
When can a Servant be Ascended?
Only Servants that have reached their current maximum level can be ascended. The maximum level for each servant depends on their rarity.
This table lists maximum level based on servant rarity and number of times ascended.
|Rarity||Default MAX Level||1st Ascension||2nd Ascension||3rd Ascension||4th Ascension|
What do we need to Ascend a Servant?
All Servant Ascensions need QP and Ascension Items. Check an individual Servant's page to determine exactly what you need. When selecting a Servant on the Ascension screen, the game also lists the requirements; for each item, the top number is how many items needed while the bottom number is how many you currently own. At the bottom of the screen you can see the QP needed.
For a list of all items used for Ascension, see Ascension Items.
