| +20% research cost reduction for Era I technologies on Empire.
An Era I technology exclusive to the Broken Lords which reduces the research cost of Era I technologies by 20%. It is unlocked by completing Chapter 1 of the Broken Lords faction quest.
Considering that Chapter 2 of the Broken Lords faction quest requires having a total of 12 technologies from Era I researched to complete, it is recommended to acquire the Archaeologist technology as soon as possible to reduce the amount of time Chapter 2 will take to complete.
It is of great value to study the artifacts and history of Auriga - particularly with an eye to predicting its future.
