With Chaos Descending all four Ascension classes increase in maximum level to 20 and give a mixture of three upgraded abilities from the first 10 Ascension levels, as well as three new abilities. To make testing easier, Finch the beta merchant will provide you with an Ascension draught that will set your ascension class and level to 20. Finch can be located at the Ulteran Spire Network in Myrist, the Great Library.

Please provide all feedback to new and upgraded Chaos Descending Ascension abilities here. Please remember to be specific, including the name of the ability, the tier (apprentice, adept, etc), as well as any relevant constructive feedback.

While looking at elementalist spells we only get 5 new ( or upgraded ) while others other gets 6
Also the dmg increases from ancient wildfire vs ancient wildfire 2 seems to be non existant?

Additionally on the Elementalist new spell Domain of Fire, did you forget to put a 0 on the end of those damage numbers? At 5min40 second reuse the damage numbers look way low compared to other ascensions at much lower reuse. For example Implosion at Journeyman is reading 6,823,918 - 26,756,128 at my current stat level on beta with a 3 minute 24 second reuse. Journeyman domain of earth is 5,599,963-7,385,994. Obviously low end is similar but high end is pitiful on the new spell and reuse time is 5min40sec. The tick damage is equally low on the high end of this new ascension. At 5 minute reuse I'd definitely expect numbers to be more on par with implosion. Or reuse needs to be drastically reduced on this

How are you accessing the numbers on upgraded tiers of the new abilities, did i miss a bauble somewhere to level these?

For the third expansion now, elemental amalgamation is still bugged for pet players and does no extra damage. Can just remove that spell please if you don't intend to fix it?

Elemental Amalgamation is not bugged for all pet players. I've never had a problem getting its damage to show up on my conji. Although I've heard the reports that its doing 0 damage for some its not all.

What does Blistering Waste do exactly? it appears in advanced Sage 2 book but all versions have no detail for it. Im assuming its an ascension...is it the missing 118 elementalist spell?

Thaumaturgist:
I'm noticing that Blood Contract I, even only at journeyman, is better then Blood Contract II at apprentice. Is it intended that the 'upgraded' version be so small an upgrade?

My main toon is bugged and i have a friend's toon that is bugged. if an ability works for 98% players it doesn't mean it doesn't needed to be fixed.

Asc lv 10 Buff (eg. Elementalist Elemental Avatar):
I dont think that the spell level get the correct output in fervor now:
Journeyman: 2 Fervor
Adept 2.2 Fervor
Grandmaster 3 Fervor
Ancient 3,6 + 3,6 = 7,2 Fervor

but I'm sure it's allready on your todo list Wink

i think its intenden cuz the normal ascension pot buff gives 18% pot and extra 3,6 fervor. so the second fervor is a nice update.

Dominion of Fire & Elemental Overlord are very underwhelming so far. I didn't expect the world, though I did expect that it would be viable to cast at apprentice. It was not true however, It provided damage less than anguish and some of the other proc damage.

Dominion of Fire agree completely, and given the cast time / downtime of it, its not really worth casting. In any reasonable group, the trash would be close to death by the time you'd cast it.

Elemental overlord. Mmm. Another DoT. The class needs at least ne decent ST. Wildfire isn't decent, its ascension filler lol

How do we level the new ascensions? Are we able to get more guided ascensions or am I missing something?

"Ethereal Conduit" and "Ethereal Conduit II" are still bugged.
Still the way we both Caith worked on it 2 years ago.


If you press a pool conversion ability, the ability aborts, which is okay.
This also applies to the "Relentless Conviction" rune, which also counts as a pool conversion.


But the problem with the whole thing is that you have to relogg in order for the Ethereal Conduit or Ethereal Conduit 2 ability to work again.
Because this ability is then completely blocked until you start the game again.
And that's the bug, you can not restart the game each time, just because you used a pool conversion ability because it just needed the situation and "Ethereal Conduit" was running at this moment.

Would it be possible to change Pact of the Fire tyrant to remove the non ward effect seeing as we get so much fervor with this expansion?

The increase from Frozen Heavens I to Frozen Heavens II is non existant. it's a 0.05% (one half of 1 percent increase) when comparing identical tier spells.

Thaumaturgis: Necrotic Consumption 20 lvl.
And why with the spell level, only fervor grows, and the damage remains the same. Should it be?

ascension animation - VFX

could we get new FX ? Frozen heaven and dominion fo fire share exactly the same VFX.

also shared with elemental channeling, frost pyre and elemental overlord.

could we get new spell effects ?
