Purified Resources[edit]

Research requires gold and purified resources. Purified resources are held across all cities, like gold, but cannot be plundered.

Purified resources can also be gained as a combat reward.

Creating purified resources requires a Moonglow Tower Level 10. A single purified resource can be created by converting 1,000 standard resources.

Research[edit]

Gold and purified resources are used in research, which increase the abilities of units. For each level of research, the purified resources you need triples (i.e., Infantry: Travel Speed level 1 costs 500 Trueseed; level 2 costs 1,500 Trueseed). The maximum benefit of research (except title advancement) is a 100% bonus.
