Condensed some of the questions/answers.
I've ascended to the new level of restarting every level without the power-ups reinstated but getting the AP as if I've never played them. Doesn't make that much of a difference. I haven't blown any AP on level 4 stuff I don't really want.
Good! Sorry. Smart move.
Is that the only way to SUPER ASCEND?
Do I need to spend the coins to re-do everything to reach SUPER ASCENSION?
No. Many ppl got to first SA without coins, and after the SA you will have 2+ good artifacts and/or 25% AP buff.
Will I have the AP and everything back afterward?
Do I keep the Supercamp?
Do I really only get to keep one artifact?
No. You can keep 2 or 3 artifacts.
Can I upgrade it to GOD mode? There better be a GOD mode.
GOD mode? Maybe.
