Looking for help with Divinities? Check out our Divinity Tier List.

This page attempts to categorize all the Ascension Upgrades as a general guide to what is worth buying when.

I assume a mix of active and idle play here. If you never turn off your game or only seldomly open it to check in you may want to skip some of my recommendations. Read descriptions before you buy something to avoid wasting SP. You cannot really screw up your purchasing order though and everything is useful in its own way. Experiment!

Last updated: v2.8.1


Tier 0

Don't ascend until you can afford all 3 of them. You should probably wait until ~50 SP though.

Tier 10

A new world is opening up! It is Ultra Ascension Time! The optimal time to UA the first time is at around 5 Ultra Slayer Points. Buying up Tiers 0-9 before Ultra Ascension will have you end up just about 23,020 total SP short of your 5th USP. All Upgrades beyond that will come slowly over following runs. I didn't rank the post-UA Upgrades. They are all good and cheap and you should prioritize them when they're in reach.
