The First Descendant – Research Requests Guide

Greetings, Descendants! In this guide, we’ll cover Research Requests, which are used to obtain new Descendants and craft various advanced equipment and enhancement materials.

What Are Research Requests?

Research Requests let you obtain Descendants other than the Descendant that you chose at the start of The First Descendant.

It is also a function that allows you to craft materials that are required to enhance the stats of Ultimate Weapons, Modules, Equipment, and more.

Being a big gaming fan, I believe that I have a lot to share with other gamers. I got my first official job in the game industry in 2005 and continue to develop there. It's a true blessing when your passion, hobby, and job combine into something one. My favorite console is the Nintendo Switch. I think you can all guess why. Because I just bought a Steam Deck. I love playing on PC, but my main love for me will always be Xbox. Anyway, it's complicated and simple at the same time. After all, I'm back in the days of the ZX Spectrum (1994)…
