Players have a “Research Level” that increases by gathering traces of monsters, etc. As your Research Level increases, so does your Scoutflies’ abilities, such as guiding you to the next trace with fewer traces. A bestiary is also being prepared, which will fill out as your Research Level increases. The bestiary contains rewarding information such as fleshiness, weak spots, resistances, and what comes out when you destroy body parts.
