    Default Ascend: Hand of Kul - Coming to PC

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/233630/
    http://ascendgame.com/



    Ascend, which initially released on Xbox Live in late September of last year, was one of the first XLBA free to play titles. Built on the Toy Soldiers engine, the game is an action RPG where players battle for one of three gods.

    Players create their character and pledge their allegiance to one of three gods as a member of a race of giants known as Caos. "Crush your enemies and spread your deity’s influence," Signal Studios writes on its Steam page. "Other players will kneel before your rule."

    "When you hit level cap, you have the ability to 'Transcend' (which is like Prestige), where you have to 100% start over but with your Souls and Emblems still"

    Oooh this game where you crush your enemies..and have your minions ride your body. I remember seeing this a while back. Will the graphics be better on PC?

    I'm guessing it has Open World PVP? If so, I won't touch it. Sorry Seya.

    Only plays Magic DPS Classes, Healers and Machinist/Engineers.

    People can invade your world at any moments notice. according to the last demo I watched. The guy saw some sort of dark portal and he got attacked by a "shadow"

    Comes out in 7 hours. From what I seen on youtube, its a fairly interesting concept. Better gameplay then Dark Souls imho. The combat alone already looked more fluid. That being said....it seems to be a free game???? This is confusing. I also wonder how the pvp will work exactly.

    Why this if there's Dark Souls? Watched some YT vids, looks pretty bad regarding combat.

    not quite.... ascend can be done every 5lvls. When using ascend, you can keep some equipment pieces (the number depends on how many pedestals you have bought with souls) Ascending will delete all other equipment, lets you change how you look and what you wear like at character creation and sends you back where you left (so you keep your progress)

    for now there doesnt seem to be a downside to ascending with minimum lvl requirement (for example you can ascend at lvl 10 but the max at that point is 25)

    welp, guess I'll give this a try. been a sucker for action RPGs lately.

    Edit:
    Found this little nugget on the FAQ:

    Q. How do you challenge another player, or invade an altar/shrine?
    A. At present your Ascended Champions will automatically invade other player's contention points and tribute their victories to you. If this happens while you are playing Ascend you will see a popup-notification that tells you whose game they are invading, and whether or not it was a success. We have improvements and extensions of this system in the works.

    Sounds like a hilariously awesome version of the Dragon's Dogma pawn system.

    I'd say it kind of is in a way but it's nothing detrimental just yet since you don't fight actual people just yet. Once they add actual PvP I'll probably end up quitting because you can just buy souls with real money.

    It's a really weird system but it seems like it works for the moment.

    You can buy souls for money to speed things up. But seriously.....there is a very easy method to get souls. Since this game already been out on the x-box for a year or so. People already made farming methods on youtube and such. You need to get very high combo's, like 500+, this way your soul multiplier is like x15. You can do this by using a very low attack weapon and only use normal attack(LMB )

    Then finish them off with black hole spell or a stronger weapon. Pretty cheesy, but apparantly you get like 200k souls in a few hours with this method in Ring of Bones. You need to farm anyways. Since the soul repair costs are INSANE once you aquired full purple/gold gear at high level.....

    You already were low on my scale, because on how you judged other people views and bashed games you did not enjoy purely because of it.

    But now, lel


    Ontopic-

    So far i can't really feel the difference, on, how the Gods really matter, because the damn Void ( what i expected to be a mage ) is kinda meh lol.
    Combat is quite plain, because you only got few attack animations and you just bash trough waves, i guess i will play it a bit more and see how it goes.

    Yes, I like this more then Dark Souls 2. Should I be sorry? Also I love how you say I "judge" people, then do the exact same thing. Atleast I judge and bash games with arguments unlike you. No need to get mad though, we can like different games. Dont you think? ;x

    first real boss i faced (some giant ogre) made me waste 10k souls on repairs on lvl 10, so yea....repair costs can be insane. Apparently you can ascend every 5 lvls and it is advised to ascend as soon as possible to gain as many passive glyphs as possible, all of the 3 gods have different bonuses for ascending (fire - dmg, armor, detonate and fire DoT; light - run speed,attack speed, stun and critical chance; void - freeze, magic resist, and dont remember the rest right now)

    oh and each time you ascend it leaves behind a template that will be a random enemy in some dungeons and invasions so do equip them well before you ascend

    Yeah, I ascended 2 time yesterday. Today I log back in with a message saying I aquired 2800 souls. So your "clones" fight non-stop for you it seems. Imagine if you ascend like 50 times, which is max in this game. You get craploads of souls while sleeping.
