In-game description:
"The Reincarnation process will reset all your stats, your excavations and remove all your gems. You will however keep your trophies and gain a new free upgrade, Reincarnation Power, unlocked immediately upon starting a new run. This upgrade will grant different bonuses based on the amount of times you have reincarnated and will persist through subsequent abdications. Certain reincarnations will also unlock new unique and very powerful features."

Reincarnation was introduced in the Underworld Expansion (v1.2). In terms of game-play, it's a second kind of soft reset where players can trade in all of their gems and have most of their stats reset for other bonuses.

Requirement, Cost, and User Interface Edit

Reincarnation can only be performed for the first time when the user reaches 1 Oc (1E27) gems (not coins). Each subsequent reincarnation costs 1,000 times more gems.

When reincarnation becomes available, the "???" button on the Upgrades panel (to the right of the Abdication button) changes to a "Reincarnation" button.

Reincarnation Power Edit

Reincarnation power upgrade

When you reincarnate the first time, you will automatically be awarded the Reincarnation Power upgrade. It is this upgrade that enables all the powerful reincarnation perks. Hovering over it will reveal all the details about your reincarnation perks.

Guidelines Edit

There are many paths you can take to progress, there is no "one correct path". Each player finds his/her own path, adapted to his/her play-style and personal progress. Trying to find your own path is the best way to learn and understand each faction.

The below is an example guideline but it is encourage to step out and try all the factions, note down which factions work best at which gem amounts and create your own progress path.

R0 - R16 Guidelines
R# Range Suggestion
R1-3 0 gems
  • Try Elf for at least the first run, for their high Faction Coin Find chance.
~1 T (1E12) gems
~100 Qi (1E20) gems
  • Try Fairy into Dwarf (Dwairies). Angel / Dwarf (Dwangels) also work well for those wishing to cast lots of spells fast and stack bonuses from them.
R3-12 1 No (1E30) gems
R13-15 1 Vg (1E63) gems
  • At this point, progress using Mercenary builds will start to slow down. The fastest choice is still Lightning Forge, requiring constant activity. A bit slower, but can almost entirely be idled, are the Innkeeper and Diamond Forge builds. Even longer, but solid, is the IGOT build which can go from 1 Uvg (1E66) to 1 Tvg (1E72) in one run.
  • Optimize your runs by doing build-ups using special builds. (eg: Run "Foreplay" or "Everything is Awesome" merc builds to optimize your click total or your Faceless Heritage.)
  • Once you reach R14 and have 6k+ mana, you can start to include Spiritual Surge in your combo casts. Note that there is not much benefit in solo-casting it or using it below 6k mana.
  • If progress is really painfully slow, it may be time to consider getting those more challenging trophy and challenge perks you had put off until now.
R16+ 1 Tvg (1E72) gems
  • At minimum 1 Tvg (1E72) gems, you may finally start Research! Out of all of the factions, Elf is well recommended for gaining Research points thanks to their Faction Coin generation.
  • See also Research Builds.

  1. Approaching R40, quantities in the game may behave strangely if any of the used values exceed the number 179.7 Uc (1.797E308) because the computer can no longer store their values. This may not break your game in a noticeable way, but in general, values that overflow will get set to 0. If this happens, it will not prevent you from ascending, as gems cannot overflow before the gold does, but an overflow of gold will prevent you from any further gem gain.
