Research in Lords Mobile can be daunting. When starting out, you have many to choose from. So, where should you start?
In this guide I hope to answer that question by examining what’s working for me.
Let me give you a quick guide first and if you need to continue reading for more detail you can. Otherwise, see you next time!
Before starting any research be sure you’ve maximized your speed.
Research Speed Boosts
You can boost your speed with hero Trickster. At Legendary level you gain 20% research speed boost. You won’t need to assign Trickster as your leader. You gain economic boosts from heroes all the time, even when they aren’t assigned.
Obviously your talent tree boosts speed. At maximum level you gain 105% speed. So, hero level increase improves speed in the way of more talent points.
Items that boost speed include:
- Tome of Saints -Offhand – 2%
- Vice Grips – Offhand – 5%
- Lunar Flute – Accessory -26%
- Gryphon Walkers – Feet – 17.5%
- Elder Garb – Armor – 5.5%
- Cavalry Mail – Armor – 7%
Lastly, your Academy level boosts speed up to 30% at level 25.
What to Focus First?
First, research what helps you obtain resources to keep going. In other words economy-based research is your first target. Secondly, Military Command contains several options to increase your storage of resources. This way you can produce more resources before reaching maximum capacity.
Other trees provide easy improvements to your castle because because they are cheap. Once you get deep down a tree it becomes costly. So take the low-hanging fruit when possible before tying up your timers and resources in level 8 or 9’s. It is probably easier and faster to take the easier researches for events completion.
I also consider monster hitting research to be economy-based as you get great rewards from hitting monsters. It also helps grow your guild’s gift level!
Obtain and level up hero Trickster for 20% research boost at legendary!
Academy – Research Trees in Lords Mobile
The Academy contains your trees. Within this building you can research a number of trees:
- Monster Hunt
- Upgrade Defense
- Upgrade Military
- Army Leadership
- Military Command
- Wonder Battles
This will be your main point of entry in Lord’s Mobile. Economy tree holds your basic needs to get started.
Construction Speed and your various resources are boosted here. When you are starting out, construction speed is very important.
In addition to lowering your speedup cost you also improve how long you can get upgrades for free, depending on your VIP level.
Please note that Weight Training increases troop load when gathering. It does not improve your training speed.
They call this Army Capacity. It is your army’s capacity to hold resources when gathering.
The final two of Resource Harvesting and Gem Harvesting improve the speed at which you gather or harvest these respective resources.
This is an example of what you’re facing in these trees. Remember to level up Trickster by obtaining him in the Heroes Stages, equip your gear and work on that Hero and Academy level.
