Sacrifice everything to appease the Outsiders, and gain previously unheard of levels of power.
Transcendence is roughly a super-Ascension: in addition to sacrificing your Gold and Hero levels, you also sacrifice Ancients, Hero Souls, Relics, and Gilds (not gilds purchased with Rubies as you'll gradually earn them back). In exchange, you receive Ancient Souls and Transcendent Power. Transcendence becomes available after defeating Woodchip, the Rodent (boss of zone 300).
You can choose to respec when you transcend: simply tick the "Respec on Transcension" when you transcend. Unlike Hero Souls, all Ancient Souls are earned back when respeccing.
Mercenaries will be locked immediately post-transcendence, but will be kept in store "as-is" and unlock at the normal time (level 139 or after one Ascension) and remain just as they were when you left them. Purchased gilds are only temporarily lost; you regain 5% of them every time you earn a gild normally. But, on mobile, Mercenaries will still be available post-trancendance.
Transcendence does not replace Ascension: each Transcendence cycle is worth and will require several Ascension cycles, increasing as your Transcendence rewards do.

Every point in Transcendent Power gives a bonus to the number of Hero Souls dropped, beginning with level 105, for which the boss gives 20 (times Solomon multiplier) extra Hero Souls if it is Primal. For every subsequent boss, this value is multiplied by TP. This gives the formula:
While Hero Souls count is reset — and with it the player's Hero Souls reward cap from defeating an Immortal — Immortal damage isn't reset. Therefore the player's value to its clan isn't diminished by transcending. The sole thing that happens regarding clans is the fact that the "Highest Zone Ever" value does freeze for a while, the time for said player to reach it back.
Primal Souls Cap
The new "Max Transcendent Primal Reward" is the most Hero Souls that any primal boss will ever give until the next transcendence. Once hit, all primal bosses from then on will continue to give the same Hero Souls reward. It's equal to 5% of the total souls sacrificed, but this number can be increased by Borb.

- Transcendence was introduced in patch 1.0.
- During the same patch, the formula for the HP of the monsters changed. Past level 500, the HP of monsters is so high that players are encouraged to transcend, although they should have done that 200 zones ago.
