The Ascension system is yet another new leveling system that has been introduced in Outriders with the new Worldslayer expansion.
It works in tandem with the new PAX Tree system to allow players to further customize their characters and builds to endure the new endgame content.
The following guide will explain what the new Ascension system is and all of its new Ascension Passives in Outriders Worldslayer.
What Is Ascension Leveling System
The Ascension system is a new endgame leveling system that becomes available after you reach level 30 in the new Outriders Worldslayer expansion.
Any XP that you gain after hitting level 30 goes into leveling up your Ascension Rank. You gain an Ascension Point every time you level up which can then be invested into the following four attributes:
Each of these attributes has five different Ascension Passives that can be leveled up a maximum of 10 times. Hence, in order to max out all four attributes, you will require a total of 200 Ascension Points.
How To Earn Ascension Points
Ascension Points can be earned by completing different Challenges, Quests, and Activities after reaching level 30. Defeating enemies also grants you XP which will level up your Ascension Rank.
The Ascension system works just like the Paragon system of the recent Diablo games. You just have to invest your time into the new endgame activities so as to earn the maximum amount of XP possible.
However, as your Ascension Rank increases, the required XP to reach the next Rank also increases. The last remaining Ascension Points will require you to be prepared for a long and frustrating grind.
How To Respec Ascension Points
Similar to the PAX Tree system, you can respec and reset your Ascension Points on the fly.
To respec your Ascension Points, head to the Class menu and open the Ascension system menu. Choose the skill you want to reset and you will have the option to reset the skill.
Respecing will give you back the Ascension Point you invested and you will then be free to invest it into another skill of your choice instantly.
All Ascension Passives
All of the Ascension Passives give small bonuses in the first few levels, which get scaled really highly in the last few levels. Also, many of the Ascension Passives use the same scaling system, so you won’t lose out on the bonuses you gain no matter which Passive skill you invest in.
