Argaiv

Argaiv, Ancient of Enhancement

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 available.

Acquiring Ancients

Clicking the "Summon Ancient" button will bring up a random selection of four Ancients. Each ancient purchase will reset the ones available. Selections can also be reset at any time by clicking the "Reroll" button in the selection box. The costs of rerolls depend on the number of Ancients summoned (see table below). For beginners, it is best to get Siyalatas, Juggernaut or Libertas as Siyalatas increases your DPS by 25%, a good boost for beginners. Juggernaut is a must have if you use an auto clicker especially. The more you click, your click damage increases. Libertas gives you more gold.

Once summoned, Ancients can be leveled up to increase their effects at the cost of additional Hero Souls per level.

Hero Souls spent on Ancients can be retrieved at any point by clicking on the "Respec" button. Respecing will destroy all summoned Ancients and refund 75% of the Hero Souls spent.

*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.

The variable n in costs represents the level to which the Ancient is upgraded, e.g. leveling Bhaal from 9 to 10 costs 10 Hero Souls.

Incremental costs are costs to level a hero to n from the previous level, while cumulative costs are costs to level him from level 1 to level n.

Removed Ancients

These ancients no longer exist. They can only be obtained by importing a save from an older version.

Ancient Effect per level
Iris, Ancient of Vision +1 to starting zones available after ascending
Khrysos, Ancient of Inheritance starting gold after an ascension
Thusia, Ancient of Vaults +% health of Treasure Chests while Golden Clicks is active.
Solomon, Ancient of Wisdom +% Primal Hero Souls (starting at 5%, and scaling down to 1%)

Ancients Tier List

Here is an estimated tier list for Ancients in Clicker Heroes. This list can be used as an indication of how a player should summon their Ancients: Ancients in higher tiers are generally 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 a player is playing an Idle, Hybrid or an Active Build (e.g. Fragsworth, Bhaal, and Juggernaut), so this list should be used based on what kind of strategy is being used. Also, each tier has no specific order from best to worst, it's just placed in alphabetical order.

Notes

  • Ancients were introduced in patch 0.12, with 26 available for purchase.
  • Patch 0.14 guaranteed Ancient rerolls to give as many new Ancients as possible.
  • Patch 0.15 introduced Iris and Juggernaut.
  • Revolc was added in patch 0.18.
  • In patch 1.0, Iris, Khrysos, Pluto and Thusia were removed.
  • Since patch 1.0e6, with the addtion of Nogardnit, there are 26 Ancients available for purchase.
  • In patch 1.0e10, Solomon was removed, but Pluto was reintroduced
  • 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.
