I wanted to make a list of methods for acquiring unfarmable ascension materials via playing (doesn’t include purchase options). I thought I would share with all.

Thanks to the following people for helping me with this, any mistakes or bad assumptions are mine alone and not theirs: EvilSmoothie, Aquaginera, Kikyo, Witch, Jendon

We make the following assumptions, which may or may not be true for any specific player:

- You have a team strong enough to finish the quest/event mentioned (challenge events on legendary, Seasonal on advanced mode), but aren’t spending the battle items needed to do more than complete them (as opposed to placing in the top ranks).
- You fill two monster chests and one hero chest daily.
- You fill a titan chest every 7 days ( 2 escapes a week)
- You are getting loot tier 9 – 13 (three rolls for ascension items) for kills and 5 for escapes
- You fill a war chest every 4.5 weeks (slightly better than 50% win rate)
- You watch Mystic Vision every day
- You clear each section of S2 as it opens

**Ways to get mats:**

**Rare Quests:** Approx every 1.5 weeks. One 3* and one 4* guaranteed

**Challenge events:** Once a month typically three 3* guaranteed for legendary and two 3* guaranteed for epic

**Seasonal Events:** Once a quarter typically a 3* and 4* guaranteed

**Hero and Monster chest:** Three a day (2 Monster, 1 Hero). x% (small) chance of 3* or 4*

**Elemental (rare) chests:** Approx every two week. Two chances of x% (good) of 3* or 4*

**Titan Loot:** 5 days a week killed. If killed: 3 shots and if escaped: 2 shots at x% (small) chance of 3* or 4*

**Titan Chest:** Once a week. x% (small) chance of 3* or 4*

**Alliance Wars:** Once a week. If a win: x% (small) chance for 3* or 4*, if loss %x chance (very small) for 3* and 4*

**Alliance War chest:** Once every 4.5 weeks. Two chances at x% (good) of 3* or 4*

**Atlantis (ascension) Chests:** Once every 3 months. Guaranteed 3* or 4*

**Mystic Vision:** Every Day. x% (very small) chance for 3 or 4 star

I believe this hypothetical player maybe seeing slightly lower chances than the average player who has been active for at least 6 months – I’m trying to understate rather than overstate the opportunities. Here is what it would look like over 1 year:

**Guaranteed mats:** total (38) 4 star and (98) 3 star mats + 4 chances of 3* or 4*

- Rare quests: (34) 3* and (34) 4* mats (just one blade or tomb shy of a 5 star rainbow at 4th)
- Challenge events: (60) 3* mats
- Seasonal events: (4) 3* and (4) 4* mats
- Atlantis (ascension) Chests: (4) with a guaranteed 3* or 4* mats

**Chances at Mats with “good” probability:** total: (48) chances of 3* or 4*

- Elemental (rare) chests: (26) chances at 3* or 4* mats
- Alliance War chest: (22) chances at 3* or 4* mats

**Chances at Mats with “small” probability:** total: (1,433) chances of 3* or 4* mats

- Hero and Monster chest: (1,069) chances of 3* or 4* mats
- Titan Loot (kills): (260) chances of 3* or 4* mats
- Titan Chest: (52) chances of 3* or 4* mats
- Alliance wars (wins): (52) chances of 3* or 4* mats

**Chances with “very small” probability:** total: (521) chances of 3* or 4* mats

- Titan Loot (escapes): (104) chances of 3* or 4* mats
- Alliance wars (losses) (52) chances of 3* or 4* mats
- Mystic Vision: (365) chances of 3* or 4* mats

**Estimates** (emphasis on estimates, these could be way off, we need more data) for drop rates:

• very small = 1% or under

• small = 1.5% to 5%

• good = better than 50%
