This article describes historical game content.

Wildwood ascendancy classes are special ascendancy classes that can be taken in addition to a character's regular ascendancy class during Affliction league. Unlike the regular ascendancies, Wildwood ascendancy classes can be chosen by any character class and can be changed by speaking to the associated Azmeri Wanderer NPC. Ascendancy points are gained by completing quests and killing minibosses and bosses in the Viridian Wildwood.


Wildwood ascendancy classes are unlocked after meeting with each Azmeri Wanderer for the first time as early as Act 2 (area level 16 or above). They can be switched between at any time by interacting with the corresponding NPC. Quest and point acquisition progress for each class is retained when you switch classes.[1] Respeccing Wildwood ascendancy points only requires one refund point per passive, and does not need to be fully refunded to switch between classes.[2] Switching ascendancies will reset any progress in the former ascendancy's quests.

Point acquisition

A total of 8 Wildwood Ascendancy Points can be obtained, but are obtained separately for each Wildwood ascendancy through their independent questlines; for example, unlocking 6 points as a Warden does not unlock 6 points for the Warlock or Primalist. The final 2 points are shared, however, and granted to all three Wildwood Ascendancies simultaneously. Quests completed out of order (e.g. via someone else's Wildwood in a party) will unlock the respective points even if the player has not reached that point in their own quest.[3] 2 points are unlocked for doing each of the following in this order:
