The previous version only raised the cap by 20, but this time, the level cap now goes all the way to Lv 200! If you're aiming to hit this cap quickly, make sure to check our guide on how to raise your Anomaly Research Level quickly.
With such a high level cap, a new feature to adjust the level of your held investigations will also be included. This will let you lower the quest level to make it easier to get lower tier afflicted materials.

Anomaly Investigations have a set level per quest which determines the difficulty and strength of the monsters encountered. It also affects the rewards you earn, which improve at higher levels. To increase the level, you have to clear the investigation.
During Anomaly Investigations, you may also unlock more quests by gathering afflicted points, breaking monster parts, and hunting other large monsters. Quest conditions like target monsters, possible faints, time limit, and the number of players are all random and can also affect the amount of Anomaly Research Points you earn per quest.
You'll earn Anomaly Research Points when completing Anomaly Investigations. Increasing your Anomaly Research Level unlocks new features and raises the level cap for investigations you receive. It's also used to determine the maximum level you can search using Join Requests and to check if you can join quests that are higher than your current level.
Anomaly Investigations sometimes have special conditions that affect the final number of points you receive after the quest. In general, if a modification to the quest makes it easier, you'll receive fewer points, while stricter conditions reward bonus points. These adjustments or multipliers stack with the Research Request and each other.
Try to avoid taking on quests with a less than 100% adjustment to avoid getting fewer points and finish investigations within 20 levels of your current level.
If you're farming for Afflicted Materials, try to go on Anomaly Investigations with bigger multipliers to maximize your gains.
Anomaly Investigations yield higher level afflicted materials and Amber Essences, which can be used for Qurious Crafting. Weapons can be augmented by picking a specific stat to upgrade like attack power or affinity, or a combination of these. Armor can be augmented with random improvements to stats or even additional skills or slots.
In the Anomaly Research Lab, you can check out Research Requests. Doing these requests will give you Research Points which will get you rewards like Investigation Coins. Since you only get a few coins per Anomaly Investigation, it is important to do Research Requests if you want to get more.
You can look at the Request Completion Reward at the bottom of Research Requests to see how many requests you've completed and what rewards you can get.
You can exchange the Investigation Coins you gained from Anomaly Investigations for rare monster materials like mantles, Qurious Crafting Materials, and other items like MP Accelerants and Outfit Vouchers.
