Locations and mini-games have ranks that increase as you progress.
Each successful exploration increases the rank's progress percentage. When the progress reaches 100%, the rank of the location or mini-game increases.
There are eight ranks in total:
I - Newbie,
II - Discoverer,
III - Pathfinder,
IV - Intuitive,
V - Collector,
VI - Master,
VII - Legend,
The rank number you need to reach is shown in the Location Entrance Window.
As your rank increases, the following things increase:
- energy cost and the number of items required to enter the location,
- the number of items you need to find in the location,
- rewards for successful exploration.
The list of assemblers and collection items you may receive for winning changes with every rank.
