How to research Ultimate Descendants

You can research and unlock Ultimate Descendants by visiting Magister Anais in Albion and bringing the required materials you need for each component.

When you speak with her, you can select ‘Descendants’ on the left side menu and choose the Ultimate Descendant you want to research. Each component will take Gold and time to research, so be sure when you choose the one you want.

It’s important to note that even if you complete the different activities that drop Blueprints, for example, the chance of them dropping is still low and you may need to run them again to get the part you need.

Make sure you know everything you need to about Intercept Battles before taking them on, as they are challenging activities. If you’re wondering where to find Amorphous Material, then you can check out our guide here. Otherwise, you can also have a look at our best builds for Bunny and Lepic.
