Ascended equipment refers to equipment of GAscended quality, with a level 80 requirement and stats higher than FExotic quality equipment. All ascended equipment is account bound on acquire and will stay account bound if transmuted. If Ascended armor is transmuted with a racial skin, it will still be account bound, but only usable by characters of the armor's race.

Upgrade and infusion slots[edit]

See also: Infusion

Ascended armor and weapons have the usual upgrade slot, one slot for armor and one-handed weapons and two slots for two-handed weapons.

Ascended trinkets and back items, however, do not have an upgrade slot; instead, the equivalent bonuses of an ascended jewel are added to the inherent attribute bonuses. In most cases the built-in jewel matches the prefix of the base item, but in some cases they differ. For example, the Jade Wind Orb has Dire base stats (Condition Damage, Toughness, Vitality), but the built-in jewel has Rabid stats (Condition Damage, Precision, Toughness).

Ascended items also have an infusion slot, or two infusion slots for two-handed weapons. Each infusion slot has an assigned infusion type — defensive, offensive, or utility — and only an infusion of the same type or an omni-type infusion can be inserted in that slot.

Ascended rings and back items can be infused, which adds a second infusion slot specifically for Agony Infusions.

Stat Changing[edit]

You can change the stats on Ascended weapons and armor by combining an Anthology of Heroes, the equipment you want to change, five globs of ectoplasm, and an exotic insignia (for armor) or inscription (for weapons). This process destroys all upgrades.[1][2][3]


  • 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.[4][5]
  • Ascended weapon and armor boxes can drop anywhere Ascended materials or items can be found, including the Fractal Daily Chest and Champion Boxes.
