Hero Research

Hero Research.

Research allows the user to upgrade specific areas of their empire, troops or hero through the use of the academy building. Hero research grants the ability to attack specific monsters on the map, similar to the prior event monsters that granted gold, and was a rather big addition to the game in July 2014. 

In order to attack a monster, the user must have researched the Monster Mastery Level 1, which grants them the ability to attack level one monsters. When this content was added to the game, there were many variant levelled monsters spawned throughout the kingdoms, however as everyone had only just researched the Monster Mastery Level 1, most of the level one monsters, at the time Minotaur's, had become rather extinct. As player progress, more of the lower levelled monsters are becoming harder to find, and the higher levelled monsters, over level 4, are quite commonly found. For more information on Monsters, see Mythical Beasts.

This page includes a lot of tables and information, it is recommended to use the contents guide to find what you are looking for. Not all the requirements have been updated, please feel free to add the requirements for your next upgrade.

Research Categories

There are 5 main categories for research in the Hero category of the academy. Upgrades can increase the energy recovery, march speed, hero critical hit, attack streak damage, energy cost and additional march slots. There are some additional research options for higher levels that further help within the empire such as trap stats and training speed.


Energy Recovery

Energy Recovery helps the hero regenerate energy faster, allowing the player to attack more monsters more frequently. Energy Recovery I grants a 1% initial speed boost, followed by an additional 0.25% per upgrade, granting a total 21.25% recovery rate at level 10.

Energy Recovery II isn't much different from the first set of research, and also grants a 1% speed boost on the initial research. However, rewards the player with an additional 0.30% recovery rate per research level, having ending with a 23.5% faster energy recovery rate.

Energy Cost Reduction

Attacking a monster required the use of Hero energy, which recharges over time. The Energy Cost Reduction research simply reduces the cost of your Hero's Energy required to attack a monster. The first set of 10 research decrease the energy price by a total of 13.75% when the research is maxed for Energy Cost Reduction I which requires an academy level of 3.

Further down the line with an academy level 16, the player has the option to research Energy Cost Reduction II, which grants an additional 0.5% reduced cost per research, having a grand total of 27.5% energy reduction at level 10.
