After clearing Stage 1-12, you can ascend heroes at the Command Center.
Ascending a hero is a way to raise your hero's max level and increase their rank.
Each hero has a max rank to which they can be ascended: Rare heroes can ascend up to Unique Plus, and Epic heroes can ascend up to Mythic+5. When you view the hero Index, the heroes are organized by potential ranks rather than starting or current ranks. Common heroes cannot be ascended.
Ascending a hero will require other heroes to volunteer. To start, you will select the hero you want to ascend.
The hero you choose will appear in the left slot at the bottom. Next, you will fill in the right slot with a volunteer hero who will be removed from your team after the ascension. For lower ranks, volunteer heroes must be the same as the hero you want to ascend, and both must be at the same rank. You will not be able to fill the volunteer slot if you do not have any heroes that meet the requirements.
An easy way to see if a volunteer is at the same rank as the hero you are ascending is to look at the border of the hero's icon. Learn more about hero ranks in Undead World: Hero Survival.
|Two Rare (blue border) make a Rare Plus (blue border with brackets)|
|Two Rare Plus (blue border with brackets) make an Epic (purple border)|
|Two Epic (purple border) make an Epic Plus (purple with brackets)|
When you are ascending a hero from Epic Plus to Unique or Unique Plus to Legendary, two volunteers are required to complete the ascension. However, you will be able to use any heroes from the same faction who are at the same rank as the hero you are ascending. Learn more about factions in Undead World: Hero Survival.
|To ascend this Epic Plus Conor, two Epic Plus heroes from the Collegium are required.|
|Laura and Barry are both from the Collegium and are both currently ranked at Epic Plus. They can be used as volunteers.|
|Ascending Conor with two Collegium Epic Plus volunteers ranks him up from Epic Plus to Unique.|
Ascending a hero from Unique to Unique Plus requires the volunteer to be the same hero, but instead of matching in rank, the volunteer only needs to be at Epic Plus.
Similarly, when you are ascending a hero from Legendary to Legendary Plus, one volunteer will need to be the same as the hero you are ascending but at Epic Plus rank. Two additional volunteers will need to be from the same faction and at Unique Plus rank.
If you have more than one hero who can be ascended, you can press Quick Ascend to ascend them all at once. Heroes that require more than one volunteer to complete the ascension are not eligible for quick ascensions.
When a hero reaches their max rank and cannot be ascended further, they will appear with a MAX on their icon.
If there is a hero you would like to volunteer but have already spent resources leveling that hero up, you can reset a hero at the Harbor. Resetting a hero will return all the resources you used while leveling them up. Learn about resetting a hero.
If you ascend a hero to Legendary or higher rank and would like to revert them back to Epic, you can do so at the Harbor. Learn how to revert heroes.
