This is a guide for all of the Ascension quests in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. It’ll show you how and when you can undertake each Ascenion quest to release the Rank cap on all classes for Noah and the party.
What Are Ascension Quests?
In the main menu, you’ll find the Quests menu which is further sorted by four categories: Story, Hero, Standard, and Collectopaedia Cards. As expected, you’ll find Hero Quests in the yellow Hero tab but additionally, you’ll also find Ascension Quests and Side Stories in this tab too.
Ascension Quests are fully voiced Quests that directly impact the main plot of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 along with each one releasing the cap on that Hero’s Class along with raising the Hero themselves to Rank 20. This is important, as Rank 15 will unlock another of the Hero’s Skills to be used on other Classes while Rank 20 will unlock their Talent Art for use with other Classes. Additionally, the Arts available to that Class will get a boost in damage and effectiveness.
The list below will show you how to unlock every Ascension Quest as soon as they’re available. Click the Quest name for a walkthrough and we’ve split the list into Ascension Quests for the main party and your Heroes.
