I think that the right time to ascend is when you have been playing consistently for one year to 400 days.
No just do it when you have about 1k legacy points
One year is a bit much I'd say, but 1k heavenly chips is practically nothing later on. I usually ascend after getting a few hundred billion heavenly chips.
I've gotten 10 sexdecillion baked all time, and about 50 tredicillion per second, after only playing for 40 days. I ascended at exactly 1,500, so I think that's optimal.
By that time you'd be way too attached to your current ascension, and your progress will be way too slow.
@Jeramywolfe69 how do you only have 1,500 heavenly chips if you are making 50 tredecillion cookies per second.
@NateBob I had 1,500 when I first ascended
Do it at 440
What do you think?
