Ascendancy

"When the time comes, make yours one to remember." —Petra Venj

Petra Venj was hunched over her workbench, reassembling a rocket launcher, when an odor prompted her to raise her head. The acrid smell lurked just beneath the gun oil and textured rubber. It was familiar but forbidding, like an uninvited memory.

She followed her nose into the hallways of the Dreaming City. As the scent grew stronger, she strode with increasing urgency.

She rounded a corner and spotted wisps of bitter smoke issuing from under the door to a long-disused workshop. Fearing yet another calamity, Petra burst into the room. There, she discovered Sjari, seated cross-legged on the floor, amidst a sprawling antique chemistry set.

The new Techeun turned to face her unexpected visitor. "I'm sorry," she said. "Was I being too loud?"

Petra coughed and waved her hands frantically in front of her face. With the door open, the room began to clear.

"Are you joking?" Petra fired back. "You're smoking out the whole city. What is that stink?"

"Oh," the Techeun replied distractedly, "I forgot. Apologies."

Petra leaned forward to examine Sjari's face. The new Techeun's pupils were shimmery and dilated, as if a tiny nebula swirled inside her eyeballs. Suddenly, Petra realized what the smell was.

"Are you trying to brew queensfoil?" Petra laughed.

"I was," Sjari replied, "but I… got lost."

"You're lucky I came," Petra chided. "Too much of that stuff, and you'll leave your mind in the Ascendant Plane."

"We need to find the Ley Lines," Sjari said, as if suddenly recalling her original purpose. "We need to find Queen Mara."

"You're right." Petra was suddenly somber. "We do. Queensfoil is a good idea. Keep at it."

"But next time," she cautioned, wrinkling her nose, "take it to the courtyard."

Precision frame with a small instant damage bump from explosive light makes this rocket unique, although for some reason explosive light feels similar to Vorpal damage instead of the 50ish percent like Wendigo
4
The explosive light buff going from 15% -> 25% makes this compete with some godrolls of other rockets like Royal Entry or Hezen Vengeance. I'm not sure exactly it stacks up to them but this is a near godroll for free so overall a pretty great rocket to have.
3
Stick to your Royal Entry or Hezen Vengeance. Explosive light DOES NOT stack with Argent Ordinance. EL is effectively vorpal with an activation requirement. Unless Explosive Light nerf is reverted (or buffed), it's an arguably worse vorpal for single target damage. It’s outclassed by similar rarity rockets and certainly outclassed by most exotic rocket launchers. At the very least, the lock-on sound is very satisfying.
2
This is a pretty solid rocket launcher. However, there are definitely better options, for example, Hezens or Hothead. In PvP, this rocket is okay, however machine guns are just simply better for PvP.
1
Very strong post-buff, highest rocket launcher damage buff in the game with very fast reload and intrinsic tracking. Best in class legendary rocket now.
1
This rocket launcher has the highest DPS when combined with its perk Explosive light, just barely beating out a vorpal rocket launcher. Perfect choice if you haven’t farmed a Corolla rocket launcher, and Explosive light stacks are quite easy to save on. In PVP the blast radius for max damage is fairly large and allows consistent one shots if you place your shots at least semi-close to the target.

Nice Rocket Launcher. This is the only rocket launcher that has a damage perk, can reliably have 2 rockets chambered (through Ambitious Assassin and the massive blast radius of Explosive Light picking up collateral kills) AND Tracking at the same time. Also good in PvP as well having massive velocity and blast radius due to Explosive Light and Impulse Amplifier and intrinsic Tracking from the Precision Frame.
0
for some reason explosive light got nerfed to be vorpal weapon levels of damage. as a result this is strictly inferior to your Hezen Vengeances or Royal Entrys. if you dont have either i guess this is a passable alternative, but as soon as you get one with lasting or vorpal this will be directly worse. PvP this has innate tracking and impulse amplifier so its a great legendary rocket to use there.

Love that thang. Worth the grind

I think once this season is over unless there is another meta-defining artifact mod, then rockets will be the DPS kings, and ascendancy after the explosive light change is the best one out there.
-1
Painfully average as far as rocket launchers go, good if for some reason you don't have a Code D with lasting impression as they do similar dmg. But truth be told their are way better legendary and exotic heavies that blow this rocket launcher out of the water, especially in season 15. Could be good if its perks get a buff or we go into a season with some weird god tier rocket artefact mod that doesn't work with Code D.
-1
its vorpal but takes orbs. its literal only plus side is its tracking
-2
huge disappointment. explosive light is a fraction of what it was, essentially it's vorpal but it takes work to activate. just use a good hezen/royal entry
-2
rocket goes brrrrrrrrrrrr, absurdly dmg and B E E G explosion
-3
Explosive light is so underwhelming right now that you better off with a vorpal rocket. (both 15% damage buff, but you need to collect light bulbs for explosive light) And will you use any rocket other than wardcliff in pvp?
-24
its pretty alright i guess, it's a rocket launcher
