  • The Ascension has an animation that leaves a tiny blast on both hands when drawing a weapon for the first time (This can be noticed while running and drawing the weapon)
  • The same weapon drawing blast animation is replaced with a single blast animation when swapping weapons (perform at least one auto attack before swapping, for this animation to trigger)
  • Purple and orange flame particles flow from the bottom of the wings, the effect and colours of these are more pronounced when weapons are drawn.
  • There are small glowing dust particles that emanate from the wings, these are more prominent in darker places or at night.
