The Academy allows a player to Research Technology to increase their Turf 's Might. Research allows players to unlock advanced military troops, traps, and other defenses. Research can also help reduce construction time and can allow more resources to be gathered at a faster pace.

The Academy is a permanent building, meaning that once it has been built in a player's Turf, it cannot be demolished.

Upgrade the Academy to reduce research time. Some researches also require a higher Academy level.

See the Research page to view all available Research trees in the Academy.

Tips.png Tips[edit | edit source]

While only Castle, Castle Wall, Watchtower, Vault, Battle Hall, Altar, Trading Post and Infirmary are listed as requirements for upgrading Academy Lv.25, the player is actually required to upgrade one of every building in the game (excluding Treasure Trove and Familiar buildings) because they require unlisted buildings:

  • Castle Wall: Lv.25 requires Workshop Lv.25.
  • Workshop: Lv.25 requires Mines: Lv. 25.
  • Watchtower: Lv. 25 and Infirmary: Lv. 25 requires Barracks: Lv. 25.
  • Battle Hall: Lv.25 requires a total of 20,000 War Tomes, as well as Embassy: Lv.25.
  • Barracks: Lv. 25 and Embassy:r Lv.25 requires Quarry: Lv. 25.
  • Altar: Lv.25 requires a total of 20,000 Soul Crystals, as well as Prison: Lv.25.
  • Prison: Lv.25 requires a total of 20,000 Steel Cuffs, as well as Manor: Lv.25.
  • Manor: Lv.25 requires Farm: Lv. 25 and Lumber Mill: Lv. 25
  • Additionally, upgrading each building to Lv. 25 requires one Gold Hammer, so at least 18 Golden Hammers is required to get Academy: Lv. 25.
