TL;DR Summary

  • Ascension Seals allow you to ascend a Guardian to a Radiant Guardian (NFT).

What are Ascension Seals?

Ascension Seals are an in-game resource exclusive to Guild of Guardians. Unlike other resources, they cannot be traded with other players. However, their role is crucial: Ascension Seals fuel the process of transforming regular Guardians into Radiant Guardians (NFTs). This process is known as Guardian Ascension.

This Ascension process grants several benefits to players:

  • Realise full digital ownership benefits: Ascend your Guardians, and they becomeNFTs! Make your in-game grinding even more worthwhile by not only enjoying the in-game utility benefits, but having the ability to sell them on the marketplace!
  • Increased Stats: Radiant Guardians often possess enhanced stats compared to their non-NFT counterparts.


Maximizing the Value of Ascension Seals

While Ascension Seals can be purchased directly with in-game currency, buying Ascension Seals through Eri’s Store can offer greater value for savvy players:

  • Buy with $GOG: Guild of Guardians rewards players with $GOG tokens for stellar performance in leaderboards. These tokens now have added utility as they can be used to purchase Ascension Seals.
  • Price Discount: Buying on the Eri’s Store gives you a discount compared to buying the same resources using the in-game store.
  • Bulk Purchase Benefits: Planning to ascend a large portion of your Guardian collection? Guild of Guardians incentivizes this strategic approach by offering significant discounts for bulk purchases of Ascension Seals using $GOG tokens in Eri’s Store. The supply of Ascension Seals is unlimited, so you can purchase them at your own pace when you need them.
    Note: The $GOG cost of Ascension Seals is based on the exchange rate of $GOG and will be periodically repriced at Guild of Guardians’ discretion. 

Ascension Seals bundles come in three tiers:

Bundle Name # of Ascension Seals Cost in $GOG at launch Approximate Discount to in-game Purchase Additional Bundle Discount Total Savings ($USD equivalent)
Handful of Seals 40 ~$GOG 20 30% 0% $1.50
