How to Upgrade Modules in The First Descendant

Modules in The First Descendant can be upgraded by players visiting Silion in the right-hand area of Albion. He is located in a little tunnel near where players can research new Descendants.

Silion allows players to upgrade both Weapon Modules and Descendant Modules with Kupier Shards and Gold. The cost of each upgrade will significantly rise and each Module can only be upgraded a specific amount of times.

Some Modules can be upgraded up to five times, while others can be upgraded up to 10 times. You can see how many upgrades there are by the little notches next to the Module’s picture and the enhancement level in the mod’s details.

You can also dismantle unwanted Modules to gain Kupier Shards and combine Modules together. However, players will have to reach Mastery Rank 9 before they can start combing Modules together.

Players can upgrade their Modules by selecting any of the items from their inventory or those currently equipped with a weapon or Descendant. Upgrading modules will enhance their power while also increasing capacity costs.

Every Descendant and weapon has a limit to how many mods can be installed by the number of mods and the cost of each one. The maximum capacity of either can be increased by upgrading your Mastery Rank or installing an Energy Activator.

While it might be tempting to start upgrading mods right away, players should wait until receiving higher rarity Modules to get the most benefit. There are Normal (blue), Rare (purple), Ultimate (yellow), and Transcendent (red) rarities of Modules. Be sure to come back once you have leveled up and need to boost your stats further.
