Transcendence

From Elwiki
For the Demonio skill by the same name, see Transcendence (Lu/Ciel).

At level 70 and 2nd job, players are able to bring out their abilities beyond their limits to unlock new skills and enhancements to existing abilities. Transcendence is not considered a new job, but functions as an enhanced version of your 2nd job class.

Trans.png General Information

Characters can only advance to their transcendent state if they are over level 70 and completed their second Job Change. To advance, the character must complete the transcendence quest available at the Town Board or use the Item Mall item Book of Transcendence: God's Will. If the character has already reached transcendence, they can change their class with the Transcendence Job Change Ticket.

Upon advancing to this new transcendent state, the skill tree will be expanded to include the new Transcendent skills. Two of these skills will be locked and can only be obtained by completing the corresponding Skill Quest or by purchasing the Forbidden Secret Manual from the Item Mall.

Additionally, you will be able to use two new Transcendent Skill Slots.

Trans.png Benefits of Transcendence

The new Awakening animation, with a new character Cut-in.

Awakening Animation

Upon advancing to the transcendent state, the awakening animation will be modified. The animation will receive new visuals and will be accompanied with a voice-over and a special Transcendence Awakening Skill Cut-in.

Awakening Buff

While in Awakening, players will receive a 30% damage increase instead of 20%. For Ain, he receives a 5.7% damage increase per Awakening stage rather than 5%, for a 17.1% damage increase by Stage 3 instead of 15%.

Transcendence Buff

During Awakening, every 20 seconds, the Transcendence buff will be triggered (the Buff trigger timer resets when leaving Awakening (Add excluded), entering a dungeon, or entering a field). Skills that were placed in the Transcendent Skill Slots will flash in yellow color to signify that the buff has activated. This buff lasts for 10 seconds and will decrease the cooldown of both skills in the Transcendent Skill Slots by 14 seconds (7 seconds in PvP) when it is triggered, as well as cause those skills to deal 20% more damage than usual upon activation, in turn removing the buff. While the Wedding Skill can be placed into these slots, the Transcendence buff will not have any effect on it.

Additional Weapon Stats

Upon completing Transcendence, all weapons with a level requirement of 70 or higher will receive additional Physical Defense and Magical Defense stats.

Trans.png Tips and Details

  • For the quest Sealed Power 3/5, Grand Cavern: Chasm of the Divided Land is recommended due to the dungeon having 4 minibosses.
  • The Transcendence buff will be consumed for the skill in that slot even if it was chained into by another skill, such as Ara's Secret Art skills.
    • Skills chained by Aether Sage's Double Casting passive do not actually count as using the respective skill's skill slot, so they will not consume the buff nor receive the Damage Increase.
    • Skills that chain into themselves or have manual trigger conditions, such as Dual Buster or G-18C Freezing Grenade, will only benefit from the Transcendence buff if they were initially cast while the buff was active, and they will retain that buff for however long you hold on to the extra casts. Likewise, the extra casts will entirely ignore the buff if it were to trigger after you have already cast the initial skill.
  • The Transcendence slot buff is additive to Awakening multiplier.
