An Ancient Soul

Ancient Souls are the highest obtainable currency used in Clicker Heroes, obtained by Transcending.

Obtaining Ancient Souls

Ruby (1)
After level 300, you will unlock the Transcension tab, marked by levitating eyeball. In it, are the Outsiders as well as the 'Transcend' button. By pressing the button, you will sacrifice your Gold, Heroes, Ancients, Hero Souls, Relics, Forge Cores and Gilds (except for Gilds purchased with Ruby Rubies) in order to receive Transcendent Power and a certain amount of Ancient Souls.

The sum of the unspent and spent (on Ancients) HeroSoul Hero Souls defines the number of Ancient Souls that will be earned this way. This follows the logarithmic equation:

AS = floor(5 × log(total HeroSoul Hero Souls sacrificed))

In other words, every 5 levels, the cost multiplies with 10.

The table below shows some of the HeroSoul Hero Souls costs between your 1st and 100th Ancient Soul.

Spending Ancient Souls

Ancient Souls can be spent on the Outsiders to help speed up gameplay. In contrast to HeroSoul Hero Souls, unspent Ancient Souls don't provide any bonuses, so you should always make sure to spend every Ancient Soul you have available. Below is a table with a summarized explanation for each Outsider:

Name Effect
Xyliqil + (level × 100)% effectiveness of all idle bonuses.
Chor'gorloth - ((1 - 0.95level)× 100)% Ancient cost.
Phandoryss + 50(1-e-level/1000)% Transcendent Power (Additive).
Borb + (level × 10)% maximum transcendent primal soul reward.
Ponyboy + (level × 100)% effectiveness of Solomon Solomon

Transcendent power increases the number of Primal HeroSoul Hero Souls dropped, with a higher bonus at higher zones. This is capped at 5% of your total sacrificed HeroSoul Hero Souls initially, but can be upgraded to allow for bigger bonuses.
