Ascended equipment refers to equipment of ascended rarity, which consists of level 80 requirement trinkets that are classified as unique.
 Upgrade and infusion slots

All ascended trinkets include an infusion slot instead of the standard upgrade slot found on other equipment; to compensate for the lack of a standard upgrade slot, they have attribute bonuses comparable to a "built in" jewel. The infusion slot allows players to increase a character's agony resistance. However, agony is exclusive to higher levels in Fractals of the Mists, so many players use the slots to increase other stats or to add Magic or Gold Find.

- All ascended trinkets are unique, meaning you cannot equip two identical trinkets at the same time.
