We're taking a look at how the Transcend system from Heir of Light works, and in what ways you can use your duplicate servants.
With so much going on in Heir of Light, it’s hard to make good decisions as a new player. There are a ton of characters (called servants), and each one has a different version for each element. So when you start summoning duplicates, it’s natural to wonder “what to do with duplicate characters?”.
In Patch 2.0 Re:Start, Gamevil introduced the “Servant Transcend” system, which allows you to use duplicate servants in order to Transcend the original, raising their level cap by 2 levels, and also providing a huge boost to the main stats.
In order to transcend a Servant, you need to go to Servant > Upgrade > Transcend, and make sure you meet the following requirements:
Keep in mind however, that the 4.0 version is planning to revamp the Transcendence system, and you will no longer require Servant duplicates.
The 4.0 Transcend changes:
This update will make it easier to transcend your most rare servants, that you only had to rely on luck & events so far.
So, you may be wondering how much Transcending is worth it?
Well, the stat boosts you gain are huge, not to mention the extra power you get from the max level cap raising:
And here’s the hard part, how are you supposed to find the duplicates you need?
You simply need to choose the Servant from your list, and you will notice an icon just below the “Dismiss” button, that will show you all the Stages you can grind for the shard drop.
Once you have enough shards, you can craft the servant.
These are the various ways you can gain servants:
Another option you have for duplicate Servants, or the ones you don’t really need, is the “Dismiss” action.
However, you should never dismiss a Servant in any scenario.
The only thing you get is 400 Gold for 4-star servants and 800 Gold for 5-star servants, which is a big joke!
I’m not sure why this is even an option, maybe so that some players can do it by mistake and lose their characters?!
It’s far better to use a Servant as Upgrade material of any kind, than to simply dismiss him / her.
