[edit] Upgrade and infusion slots

See also: Infusion

Ascended trinkets do not have an upgrade slot, instead each have stats comparable to having a "built in" jewel of ascended quality. Ascended weapons have a standard upgrade slot. With few exceptions, every ascended item also has an infusion slot. Infusions add small attribute bonuses, agony resistance, and/or other unique bonuses.

Infusion slots come in three varieties (offensive, defensive, or utility), which restrict the type of infusion that can be inserted. Note that adding an infusion to an item is not the same as creating the "infused" version of that item (the two are separate and cumulative).

Two-handed weapons have two infusion slots instead of one.

1One ascended Prototype Fractal Capacitor is created with a Prototype Fractal Capacitor (1,350 Fractal Relic.png) and a Gift of Ascension (500 Fractal Relic.png) in the mystic forge.

[edit] Notes

  • All ascended trinkets are unique, meaning you cannot equip two identical trinkets at the same time.
  • No additional tiers are planned after Ascended, but there are plans to enhance or gain items within the existing rarity design whose properties continue on a shallow power curve. Future progression will also be based on earning newly introduced skills.[1][2]
  • Ascended weapon boxes can drop anywhere Ascended materials or items can be found, including the Fractal Daily Chest and Champion Boxes.
