Ascension Material Farming

  • The Valentine's Event rerun Free Quests show decent drop rates for several Ascension Materials, notably for Heart of the Foreign GodCursed Beast GallstonePhoenix Feather.
  • As Shinjuku will be released after Valentine's, the material drop rates for the best nodes in Shinjuku are also listed.
  • *Please note that drop data for most Royale Difficulty materials is limited. Only the rates for Heart of the Foreign God + Cursed Beast Gallstones are somewhat accurate, while the rest are estimates.
  • The Ascension Material drop rates listed for Royale difficulty are with the understanding that Chocolate Molds are used to force a monster's appearance.
