Ancients are accessories that provide various bonuses throughout the game. Acquiring Ancients requires Hero Souls, which are obtained through Ascensions. There are currently 26 Ancients for new and transcended players, but veteran players who have not yet transcended may have up to 4 additional Ancients in their possession.
Clicking the "Summon Ancient" button will bring up a random selection of four Ancients. Each ancient purchase will reset the ones available. Selections can be also be reset at any time by clicking the "Reroll" button in the selection box. Cost of rerolls depend on the number of Ancients summoned (see table below).
Once summoned, Ancients can be leveled up to increase their effects at the cost of additional Hero Souls per level.
|Ancient||Summon cost ( Hero Souls)||Reroll cost ( Hero Souls)|
|Total cost to summon all: 183161|
*At this point, there will be only 4 Ancients left, making Rerolls useless. Because of this, the Reroll button doesn't actually work, despite the fact that a reroll price is shown.

Ancients Tier List
Here is what is agreed to be the most accurate tier list for Ancients in Clicker Heroes. This list indicates how player should summon their Ancients: Ancients in higher tiers are worthier to summon than those in lower tiers. Bottom Tier contains Ancients that are not recommended to summon at all. Some Ancients are placed differently based on whether you are playing an Idle, Hybrid or an Active Build (e.g. Fragsworth, Bhaal, and Juggernaut), so use this list based on what kind of strategy you are using. Also, each tier has no specific order from best to worst, it's just placed in alphabetical order.
|Note: This is Work in Progress||Please help if you can! (Remove this when needed)
|Playstyle||Top Tier||High Tier||Middle Tier||Low Tier||Bottom Tier|
- Ancients were introduced in patch 0.12.
- Patch 0.14 guaranteed Ancient rerolls to give as many new Ancients as possible.
- Since patch 1.0e6, there are 26 Ancients available for purchase.
- After summoning all the ancients, the reroll button is still present, costing 23334 hero souls, but clicking will obviously not affect anything. The text above the button says, Choose one ancient to summon for 70000 Hero Souls., even there are none left.
