Does Boosts Stack in The First Descendant?

So many boosts, so little time...

The First Descendant sells a bunch of in-game boosts that offer convenience to the players. If you have less time to play, you can get some boosts and catch up. However, do these boosts stack if you activate more than one at a time in The First Descendant? The quick answer is yes, but it depends on what you mean by stack. Let’s find out.

Does Stacking Multiple Boosts Work in The First Descendant?

The First Descendant offers four types of boosts:

  • Weapon Proficiency EXP Gain +30%
  • Descendant EXP Gain +30%
  • Kuiper Shard Gain +30%
  • Gold Gain +30%

Each of these boosts is independent of each other once activated. You can have a Descendant EXP Gain boost activated for 1 day while having a Gold Gain boost activated for 3 days. The boosts stack in a way where you can have four types of boosts activated at a time.

Now, since each boost has a 30% gain, does the boost stack multiplicative? The answer is no. If you use two of the same type of boosts, the duration will just increase. You can stack the duration of these boosts but not their multiplicative bonuses. You can buy a 30-day Descendant EXP boost, claim another 3-day boost from a compensation reward, and get another 1-day boost from the Battle Pass, but they will only increase the duration.

Where Can You Get More Boosts in The First Descendant?

There are two main ways to get boosts in The First Descendant. Both methods require you to spend Caliber, the game’s premium currency. You can get boosts from the Battle Pass or buy them directly from the in-game shop.

Both methods give you all types of boosts, but in the in-game shop, you can have up to 30 days’ worth of boosts on a single purchase. If you plan on playing consistently in the next few days or weeks, you can stack these.

The First Descendant sometimes gives out boosts as compensation or maybe through events. If Nexon ever gives free boosts, you can find them in your mailbox. You can access the mailbox from anywhere by opening your character screen and looking to the lower-left side of your screen for the inbox button.

If there are boosts here, you can claim them, but once claimed, they’ll automatically activate. If you already have a boost of the same type activated, it’ll increase the duration of that specific boost.
