Mabinogi: Spirit Ascension Guide

The new Spirit Ascension System. How to get a spirit weapon and other basic information.

 

Basic Information

Spirit Weapons are utilized by casting a spirit onto a weapon in order to awaken one’s true strength. Spirit Ascension allows for a weapon to become even more powerful than it normally would.

Once a weapon is contracted with a spirit you can no longer trade said item. Not even if you use a Trade Unlock Potion. It cannot be dropped or stored in pets, banks. It can be stored in your special inventory.

Unlike before you can now use NPC’s to repair your Spirit Weapon.

You can also choose your spirit’s avatar instead of it being set to a specific type of weapon. (For example: Sword Spirit with a Bow Spirit avatar.)

Spirit level colors are still similar to the Classic Spirit Weapons.

Spirit Weapons can now be contracted to weapons with Special Upgrades, Reforges, and Erg levels. You can also build those up even after making the contract.


Now you can interact with your spirit even when it isn’t equipped by using the Spirit Info button on the game’s menu bar or by pressing the / key.

You can now have up to 3 spirit weapons contracted to one character, but cannot have 2 of the same kind. (Ex: You can have a bow and crossbow but not two bow spirits or you can have a blunt and sword but not two swords.)

Weapons Available to Contract:

  • Swords
  • Axes
  • Blunts
  • Lances
  • Crossbows
  • Atlatls
  • Wands
  • Staffs
  • Cylinders
  • Knuckles
  • Control Bars
  • Dual Guns
  • Shurikens
  • Chain Blades

Requirements

In order to use the spirit ascension service for a spirit contract you need to:

  • Be at least cumulative level 500
  • Must complete the quest Meeting the Ancient Spirit

After completing the quest you can talk to Berched in order to Convert, Transfer, or Destroy your Classic Spirit Weapon.

[You can find Berched in Taillteann using the Druid’s Moongate near the Taillteann Shadow Mission Stonehenge. Go north on the Taillteann map if coming from town.]

Quest Info: Meeting the Ancient Spirit
How to obtain the quest:

  • Reach cumulative level 500

Objectives:

  • Talk to Berched
  • Hear about the materials needed for a spirit contract
  • Receive a Barri Spirit Dungeon pass from Gilmore*
  • Ask Edern to refine the Ancient Spirit Fossils
  • Ask Berched to enhance the Spirit Stone
  • Talk to Berched after collecting all the Spirit Contract materials**
  • Form a Contract with a Spirit
  • Hear about the growth of Spirits
  • Talk to Berched

Reward:

  • Regular Gem Powder x10

*Gilmore now has a section in his Shop that sells this pass instead of needing a Keyword like before.
**One of the material is Elemental Removers || which can be acquired by:

  • NPC Purchase: Price (Check Traveler’s Guide to see where he is located), Galvin in Emainn Macha, and Lassar in Tir Chonaill. Lassar only sells 1 which is 1k each, Galvin and Price sell both 1 and 5 stacks(5k).
  • Monster Drop: Most Advanced dungeon monsters as well as Venomous Sand and Rock Scorpions in Connous
  • Fishing in Port Cobh.

**Spirit Liqueur is also needed for many of them. They can be bought on Auction House or in Player Shops. As well as made through the Potion Making skill with 1 White Herb, 1 Piece of an Ancient Spirit Fossil, and 2 Elemental Removers.

Spirit Conversion

Conversion takes your Classic Spirit Weapon and converts it into the Ascension system.
Note: You can’t reverse the change after the conversion so make sure you’re ready!

You will need:

  • Classic Spirit Weapon
  • 5 Elemental Removers
  • 1 Magical Spirit Stone
  • 1 Spirit Liqueur

Conversion uses the Classic Spirit Weapon’s stat with the highest level for conversion bonus purposes. (Ex: A Classic Spirit Weapon with a Luck Level of 50 and other levels at 45 will convert into a Level 90 Spirit Weapon.)

Spirit Transfer

Transfer is just as it says, transfer a spirit from one weapon to another.

You will need:

  • 5 Elemental Removers
  • 1 Spirit Liqueur

Note:

  • If the new weapon is different from the previous (ex chainblade to cylinder) all Ego Points must be reset in order to transfer. Resets cost Gold. The price scales by the spirit level, highest reset cost at level 100, being 5M.
  • The original weapon is not lost in the process and retains all special upgrades, ergs, etc.
  • Any Spirit Transformation Liqueurs applied to the original weapon will also transfer over.
  • You will not lose any current exp on the Spirit Weapon during the transfer.

Destroy Contract

If you want to just start from scratch or maybe decide one is enough for you then you can destroy your current contract.

You will need:
5 Elemental Removers
1 Memory Spirit Liqueur
1 Empty Spirit Stone


Memory Spirit Liqueur is sold by Berched for 100k.

Empty Spirit Stones can be acquired during the refining process of the Ancient Spirit Fossils.

Once destroying the contract you will receive a Remembering Spirit Stone if the Spirit was level 5 or more. Only 50% of the spirits’s level will remain.

Transformation

You can change the effect of your Spirit Weapon from the floating ball of light to many different types of effects.

You will need:

  • 1 Spirit Transformation Liqueur*

Once the effect is used it will replace the default glowing ball.
Unlike the default glow each liqueur has a different glow based on the Spirit’s level.

*Flame, Flare, Feather, and Basic are always obtainable by giving Dorren Spirit Transformation Stones mined from Blackstone Beach. Others are obtainable from Player Shops, Auction House, and sometimes Events, Gacha, and Cash Shop.

Feeding

Just like Classic Spirit Weapon’s feeding the spirit certain items, gems, and powders will increase it’s Experience Points.

Only 30 items/gems/powders can be fed at a time.
**Be careful of the Auto select button so as not to feed them an unintentional item!**

Just as before the amount of exp is determined by the type of item/powder and the size of the gem given.

Each Spirit Weapon type will have a preferred gem that will give them a bonus when fed.

There is also a chance to get a Great Success that will give double Exp than what would normally be received. Thus it is recommended that you only give HALF of what is needed to level up the Spirit just in case the Great Success activates during feeding.

It is also recommended to feed the Spirit when it’s Bond Meter is at max.

There are 2 ways to raise the Bond meter:
1. Remain in combat with the Spirit. 5 minutes will increase the bond by 5%.
2. Chat with the Spirit.
You can chat with the Spirit 3 times a day in game(every 36 mins). Using any keyword will increase the bar by 10%. (30 = 30%)

Note: There is a weekly amount limit of 400k Exp that can be given to each spirit. This resets every Saturday.

Ego Points

Ego Points (EP) are used to Enhance the Spirit Weapon. It will give various bonuses to the weapon such as max damage increase, critical damage increase, or even ones that inflict Bleed on enemies.

Receiving EP:

  • 1 EP is received when the Spirit levels up.
  • Additional EP is also received from Spirit Calling Quests that are given for every 5 levels raised.
  • If the Spirit is leveled while having a full Bond meter addition EP is awarded started at level 55. Once you reach level 54 the quest Spirit of the World will be given that will explain the bonus EP.
