What are the requirements to ascend any weapon to 1 star rank in Tower of Fantasy?

Ascending weapons will require you to pull duplicate weapons from the various gacha systems Tower of Fantasy contains. Pulling a duplicate weapon will grant you a Fusion core for that weapon. These fusion cores will be necessary to ascend that weapon. Rare weapons can’t be ascended; only weapons earned from the Simulacrum can perform these steps.
