- This weapon has an off-hand variant: off-hand Ascension crossbow
The crossbow is made by taking one each of the six ascension signets dropped by the legiones (Ascension signet I, Ascension signet II, Ascension signet III, Ascension signet IV, Ascension signet V, Ascension signet VI), along with a dragon crossbow and 100 ascension shards to Ocellus outside the monastery. It can be converted to the off-hand ascension crossbow for another 100 shards.
Assuming one obtained each signet on the 64th kill, it would cost, on average, 207,029,129 coins to create an ascension crossbow. If you do a co-op slayer tasks only one key is needed for entry for both party members. A pop-up confirmation will appear for the second party member before entering the lair. When the ascension boss is killed the party member who dealt the most damage will receive the drop regardless of who opened the door with a keystone. A signet, if dropped, will only be given to the party member who has received drop. The other party member will be left with no loot, therefore it is recommended to solo the ascension bosses for signets.
Only the mainhand dragon crossbow will work; neither the off-hand nor the 2-handed bow are accepted by Ocellus.
The crossbow and its off-hand counterpart both provide full protection against the four main factions in the God Wars Dungeon, in the same manner as the Zaryte bow, Nex armour, and Shard of Zaros. However, they do not protect against Zaros followers in the Ancient Prison.

- The God Wars protection perk will remain in the game, but may not have been intentional, as per Mod Dean.
