Academy Tips & Gameplay in Rise of Kingdoms

In Rise of Kingdoms, Academy plays an important role in researching technologies that increases your troops‘ attack, defense, health and march speed value. They are also the lifeline that further enhances the production of your resources like farms, lumber mills, quarries and gold mines.

Without Academy, you can’t advance your City Hall and you will struggle to expand in power. When you are starting the game, research only in basic military technologies as you get free basic economic technologies from the tribe villages to save you resources and time.
