O Anais, Where Art Thou?

To find the Magister Anais in The First Descendant, you must first head to the west wing to the right of the main entrance of the Albion hub. If you prefer to fast travel within the Albion settlement, then there are two portals used for this purpose. On the map, one is located at the top of the hub itself and the other is situated at the main Albion entrance, which you can find in the bottom left corner of the in-game map.

You should travel to either one of these fast travel points to then quickly reach the west wing in Albion, after which you can easily locate the Magisters in a separate room. This room has open walls and is therefore hard not to notice. (I wish I could say the same for the other rooms in this settlement, as well as the in-game currency, but alas.)

To further help you locate the Magisters, their location will be marked in blue if you have any quests involving Anais. When looking over the Albion map in the game, you should keep an eye out for the molecules icon if you’re unable to find a Magister.

While Albion can be pretty hard to wrap your head around at first, it will all start falling into place after you spend some time exploring the area a little. The good news is that the research vendor is also sitting in the same spot as most of the game's other crafting vendors, in the center of Albion.

Once you locate and speak with Magisters Anais, you can get going on making the most of the research mechanics in The First Descendant. Aside from giving you the ability to unlock more Descendants, the research vendor opens the path to adding more weapons to your arsenal – ones that are pretty hard to get your hands on otherwise. So be sure to take advantage of this system in the game and start tracking research projects as soon as possible.

But in true looter shooter fashion, you will still need to head out and gather materials to be able to get these weapon unlocks in the first place. However, once you have enough materials the game allows you to craft any weapon you want, which is pretty refreshing to hear. The world (in The First Descendant) is your oyster.
