There are not many who appreciate the knowledge accumulated by those obscure, unseen investigators who, in lifetimes of intensive study, may never see any practical use for their findings, but who go on nevertheless, seeking answers to the unknown. They, however, do no more than lay the foundation. Only We of the High Council are wise enough to see how Research may be applied to further the glory of the Empire
~ Tha'Roon Prime Minister of Death

Units perform Research so that the clan may acquire the ability to advance units into certain rankings, acquire bio-upgrades, and learn spells. Research is done in War Colleges, Arcaneries, and Technical Facilities. Any unit which received its training in a particular type of building can perform Research in that type of building. The results of Research are up to chance. A unit does not Research for a particular spel or ability, but performs "Research" in general. The results of the Research are then made available to the clan.

Research costs 4000 Influence plus an amount of Resources unique to each race, but ranging between 1000 and 2000 Resources.
