The Academy is used to learn and upgrade technologies, which is needed to increase your overall strength. The level of the Academy affects how high you may upgrade certain technologies. Kyanite is required in upgrading technologies, which can be obtained from plundering surrounding cities, completing dungeons, and farming.
The Kyanite which is used to upgrade these technologies is a lot harder to get than the Wartune Gold.
-> Ways to get Kyanite:
1) Plundering someone’s city [Usually gives 1500 – 1700 Kyranite]
2) Planting Kyranite yielding crops in the Farm.
3) Harvesting Tree of Ancient.
4) Doing quests which yield Kyranite, which include:
• Guild Blessing
• Completing One Multiplayer Dungeon
5) Doing Campaigns [Random Treasure Drops]
As you upgrade the Wartune Academy building, you will be able to unlock additional research items. In addition, the limit on the Wartune Academy research is limited by the upgrade level of your Academy. Below is the list of initial unlocks based on the Academy level.

Wartune Research Cost and Cooldown :
The formula to figure out the cost of research is as followed:
(Level x (Level – 1) x 5 + 50).
So the cost goes up almost exponentially as you research higher level techs.
The research cooldown for Wartune Academy is as followed:
The cooldown increases by 30 seconds a level for levels 1-10, by 5 minutes a level for levels 11-15, and by 10 minutes a level for levels 16+. At higher levels, it is essential to start research and count in the time.
Note: At first…These small upgrades may not seem to be worth the time and effort ..But after you upgrade them many times they make a really big difference.
Have a look at this:
I do not get to make enough Kyranites so this development may not be that good..but it really makes a difference in a battle
