|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
Universities grant some Knowledge by themselves as a completion bonus, and generate some more while still standing, as with most gathering buildings. However, a University has to be fitted with Scholars to generate any significant amount of this resource, making them absolutely vital for research and age advancement, specially in the late stages of the game.
Scholars are "bought" at the University for Wealth, where they begin actively collecting it from the moment of their creation. Each Scholar in the University adds +5 to the amount of Knowledge gathered per 30 seconds. This rate can be increased through the University upgrades.
- The Greeks Power of Philosophy: Can gather Knowledge from the the beginning of the game, thus Universities, along with Scholars, can be built from the the Ancient Age.
- Due to a bug, the Scholar's icon for the Gunpowder Age and the Enlightenment Age may never show up in some cases, such as playing a scenario.
