FirstAscend

After the first ascension.

The ascension screen is accessed by the Legacy button, which is under the Info button. If you reach a certain number of cookies (about 100 in that particular ascension), you can ascend and reset the same way as a Soft Reset.

Depending on how many cookies you have baked, you will earn Heavenly Chips and Prestige Levels upon ascending (at a 1:1 ratio). The total number of Prestige Levels you will have after ascending is the cube root of the total number of trillions of cookies you have baked, all time. Heavenly Chips are used in the Ascension screen to purchase Heavenly Upgrades, which are permanent throughout ascensions and provide various benefits. Each Prestige Level provides a permanent +1% CpS, although the power of your Prestige must first be unlocked in each playthrough by purchasing certain upgrades.
LegacyButton

Press the "Legacy" button to ascend.

The number beside the 'Legacy' button shows how many Heavenly Chips and Prestige Levels you will earn upon ascending. There are many Achievements associated with ascension. See below for a full list. Also, the Ascension screen allows you to access Challenge Mode.

Upgrade TreeEdit

These are the heavenly upgrades you can buy. The upgrades you buy here will never be deleted (unless you wipe your save or use Cheating).

  • The full Ascension Tree in-game.

Angel and Demon UpgradesEdit

Note: During offline cookie production, wrinklers are dormant, thus the CpS is not withered. However, this also means that wrinklers do not build up additional cookies.

For Synergies Vol. I you need at least 8,127 Heavenly chips.
For Synergies Vol. II you need at least 529,564 Heavenly chips.
For Chimera you need at least 7,941,451 Heavenly chips.

NotesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 This requires your total prestige level to be exact (current prestige level + ascension prestige). Remember to turn off "Short Numbers" in the options to see the last few digits of the prestige level.
  2. The only upgrades (as of v2.0041 beta) which affect Residual Luck are:
    • Lucky Digit
    • Lucky Number
    • Lucky Payout
    • Heavenly Luck
    • Lasting Fortune
    • Decisive Fate
    • Get Lucky (non-heavenly)
    • Lucky Day (non-heavenly)
    • Serendipity (non-heavenly)
  3. Specifically, this means that two separate Golden/Wrath Cookies or Reindeer (during Christmas Season) will spawn at the same time. Note that this can happen during a Cookie Chain, and that missing either will break the chain.
  4. The game calculates this somewhat incorrectly as a discount of 100*(1-0.99Cnum/100)%, which is slightly less than the promised (Cnum/100)%. For example, with 300 cursors, rather than having a 3% discount, you get a 2.9701% discount.
  5. 5.0 5.1 5.2 5.3 You need to gain at least +1 prestige level to make an ascension count towards achievements.
  6. According to the source code, "this achievement is shadow because it is only achievable through blind luck or reading external guides; this may change in the future".

StrategyEdit

  • People often get to 263 heavenly chips and unlock Dragon, Heavenly cookies, Starter Kit and Permanent upgrade slot 1 and insert the highest Cursor upgrade into the Permanent upgrade slot. As soon as they purchase 1 grandma, they will get a great boost in CPS, making the progress after ascension much easier and faster.
  • For mid-game, ascending at 1,708,777 total prestige would allow the purchase of the Angel/Demon upgrade tree up to Beelzebub, Seraphim, and Synergies 2, The cookie production upgrade tree up to Unholy Bait,  Permanant Upgrade slot 4, Heavenly Luck, Lasting Fortune, Lucky Digit, Lucky Number, Decisive Fate, Divine Discount, Divine Sales, and all the miscellaneous heavenly upgrades except for Fanciful Dairy Selection.

TriviaEdit

  • Purchasing all heavenly upgrades needs a total of 2,810,419,826 heavenly chips, which requires 22.19 duodecillion cookies baked.
  • Golden Switch is calculated using current CPS, so purchasing it during a "Clot" would halve the price. Likewise, purchasing it during an "Elder Frenzy" would multiply the price by 666, however, wrinklers do NOT have any effect on the price.
  • Synergy (or Holism as it is often known as) is the belief that two things put together (a whole) is more than the sum of its parts. This quote was first said by Aristotle, "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts", the meaning of Chimera's flavor text.
  • In Ancient Greek mythology the Chimera is a monster that is often depicted as being a lion with a goat's head arising from its back and a snake head at the end of its tail. It also breathed fire.
  • The italicized text for the Lasting Fortune upgrade is a reference to the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Rock bottom". The original quote from SpongeBob was: "This isn't your average everyday darkness. This is... advanced darkness."
  • "Resistance is futile, albeit entertaining," (Obliterate) is a reference to Star Trek.
  • The flavor text for the Classic Dairy Selection, "don't have a cow" is the catchphrase for Bart Simpson in the TV show, "The Simpsons".
  • "How to bake your dragon" is a reference to Cressida Cowell's book and/or subsequent animated movie, "How to Train Your Dragon".
  • Persistent memory is an upgrade from v. 1.0466 but was made into a prestige upgrade after Orteil had decided it was too overpowered (it was unlocked after only one research).
  • "Five-Fingered Discount" is American slang for the act of Shoplifting. (stealing stuff from shops).
  • Beelzebub is the modern day name for the devil. In some older Christian dictionaries, it is called the "Lord of the Flies," hence the strange icon that looks like the eyes of a fly. (Not to be confused with William Golding's book.)
  • "Elder Spice" is a reference to the product "Old Spice", and its description "The cookie your cookie could smell like", is a reference to a line spoken in one of their commercials.
  • "To crumbs you say?" is a reference to a popular line from Futurama, where Professor Farnsworth says "To shreds you say?"
  • "Nihilism" means the rejection of all religious and moral principles, often resulting in the belief that life is meaningless.
  • The flavor text of "Kitten Angels" ("All cats go to heaven.") is a reference to the animated series "All Dogs Go To Heaven".
  • The flavor text of "Golden switch" ("Less clicking. More idling.") is a reference to Spirit Airlines' slogan ("Less money. More go.") Spirit Airlines is an American "ultra-low cost" carrier based in Fort Lauderdale.
  • The achievement, "He who controls the cookies controls the universe," is a reference to the famous line, "He who controls the spice controls the universe," in the book Dune.  The achievement's description is a reference to the line, "The spice must flow."
  • The achievement, "The dreams in which I'm baking are the best I've ever had." is a reference to the song Mad World's line "The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had" which was as a breakthrough hit for the British band Tears for Fears back in 1982.
  • The achievement "In the Mouth of Madness"  is also the title of the psychological Lovecraftian horror film from 1994 written by Michael De Luca, the achievement's description is also indirectly referencing the famous line "A reality is just what we tell each other it is." uttered by one of the movie's main characters.
  • The achievement "The land of milk and cookies" is a reference to the country Israel, which is often referenced to as "The land of milk and honey", which is based on Exodus 3:8; When God spoke to Moses at the burning bush, He informed him that He would redeem the Israelites and bring them to a "good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey (...)"
