What To Do After Reaching Level 40 In The First Descendant?

Still so much to explore!


  • After reaching this maximum level, players can unlock other new characters and weapons, and also work on leveling up the Mastery Rank.
  • Players will also have the option to reset the descendant level to 1 and start fresh gameplay.
  • Once reaching the max level, players can also customize modules, collect crafting materials and run character specific missions.

The First Descendant offers 14 standard and 5 ultimate playable characters, each with unique sets of skills.

Bunny, Freyna, and Ajax are some playable characters that players can explore in The First Descendant.

Each character has a maximum level of 40, while the max cap for mastery level in The First Descendant is 30.

Work On New Characters And Mastery Rank After Reaching The Max Level

Once players have reached level 40 in The First Descendant, they will hit the maximum character level.

At this point, any additional experience points (EXP) that you earn will not contribute to your descendant progression.

Therefore, there are several things that you can consider doing after reaching the maximum descendant level.

Reset Descendant Level

Resetting your descendant level will drop down your character level to 1, leading you to upgrade it by performing the missions again.

To reset their descendant level, players will need an item called Crystallization Catalyst, which they can obtain by researching with Anais.

Moreover, players will need 5 different materials, including 8 Murky Energy Residue and the respective blueprint, to get the Crystallization Catalyst.

Once you have obtained the Catalyst, visit the mastery level increase room. Below the mastery level increase button, you will see a Descendant reset button.

Further, you must initiate the reset process by combining the Crystallization Crystal with the reset action. After this, you will obtain Arche Crystal.

Unlock New Descendants And Weapons

There are 14 playable descendants that you can unlock in The First Descendant. So, if you have reached the max level for one, you can work on others.

To unlock each descendant, players must collect four materials and conduct research with Anais.

Level Up Mastery Rank

To level up Mastery in The First Descendant, you need to head towards the main city of the Albion.

Once you are in the city, you should make your way to the left, where you will see two giant heads.

These giants are called the Prime Heads. Players should interact with them and complete the necessary requirements, like running missions to level up their Mastery.

In addition to these, players can also customize modules, run missions with different descendants, and explore different locations.
