An Expansion available to all factions once an empire reaches Era III. The Institute can only be built once in the world, meaning that once it is built by one empire it cannot be built by any other empire, and cannot be rebuilt by anyone if the city it was built in is razed. If the Institute is completed by another empire before you, you will be refunded the strategic resources spent to build it and given an amount of Dust based on how far construction had progressed.
Completing the Alchemic Institute also completes the Legendary Deed "Pragmatic Scientist".
Built of the most modern materials to the most rigorous standards, this unequaled center of study and science permits researchers to delve into the nature of Auriga's magical resources.
Although the Forgotten can build the Alchemic Institute, it is generally not recommended, since the only benefit will be a reduced cost to purchase technologies from past eras; the resources and industry used to build the Institute would be better spent elsewhere.
