I am R30, research opinions/my optimal build
So far i am R30, and i can confidently say every faction sucks for research except for elves. With elves I have made exponentially more than any other faction. Proof i am R30 http://puu.sh/lbBwm.png. Proof i unlocked every research node http://puu.sh/lfLUq/e312bab972.jpg. My gem count http://puu.sh/lfKQW/c71f2d1200.png
If anyone has any questions feel free to ask me, I am open to help. Some people wanted a full screenshot so here http://puu.sh/lfMRm/bf50185bbe.jpg
This build was not poorly designed, it took me many hours to carefully plan it, I chose everything for a reason. I squeezed as much production as I could, using many assistant nodes to help out nodes that required and were bolstered by assistant count. As time goes on, spamming tax collection for a while, you will see your production have a great boost from all of the FC you found. With all of those FC, you can buy a lot of Royal Exchanges which in turn help out the Titan Bloodline. Furthermore, as mana is produced and spent, your production goes up higher and higher both Explosives (A150) and Aeromancy (S250). If you do this for a long time you will see a noticeable improvement in your production. Commerce (E25) is another example of squeezing assistants into this build. So far i have 97 from just that node alone and it will only grow higher as i buy more Royal Exchanges. Now I will go over EVERYTHING one at a time to leave no stone untouched. Alright lets begin.
Mysticism: Awesome mana regen that only gets better as you make more research.
Augmentation: The more mana you get, the higher your production bonus.
Empowered Luck: what can I say about this one? Multiplying your production of all buildings by 120x, that is insane, not to mention the huge 4% increase chance up from 1% to 5%, I am sold.
Projection: For every active spell cast, Holy Light, CtA, Moon Blessing, increases Spirit Surge’s production by a huge 150% each. Combined with a later node I will talk about when I get there, its insane.
Aeromancy: The more mana you produce, the better it becomes. It boosts your unique building production and it keeps on increasing.
Dummy Targets: Well lets get an amazing node out of the way, this one increases production of your elven training grounds by a GROUND BREAKING amount.
Reinforcing: If you keep clicking this will up your production of all buildings, but of course elven training grounds is the main one. I for one do not have an auto clicker, but if you have one, then definitely choose this.
Tinkering: So, this one has diminishing returns due to the fact that research points are finite, R30 has a total of 465 points per branch. But at my current 365 per branch I have a 2817% increase. Its a really nice node.
Automatons: man oh man this thing, I just cant. It made my CtA go from 98k% to freaking 243123% production. This node is amazing. Case closed.
Magnetism: Now you probably are looking at this, looking at me, looking at it again, looking at me, and asking… WHY? Well before you grab the pitch forks, let me explain. There is a simple reason why: FC, FC, FC!!! My TC makes 68.87 FC a pop and that synergizes so damn well with this build. You will get tons of Royal Exchanges, and FC themselves alone help with everything. As I am typing this guide i have my TC on auto cast so when I get back to my game, my production will have gone up a lot.
Hallowing: I really like this one, not just for the FC chance, but elves double that anyway, making you find more FC from TC. That is the real reason why I like this one, the increased FC you get from TC with this node makes it great.
Illumination: The mana regen is great for many reasons, like spamming TC a lot more. Self explanatory really.
Transcendence: Ahhh transcendence, you beautiful bastard you. Making our actives last longer and all spells costs 20% less, allowing to spam EVEN MORE TC.
Soulrending: This thing literally doubles your SS production, and in conjunction with projection I have over 1M% production bonus from SS alone ENOUGH SAID.
Demonology: More assistants.
Commerce: More assistants.
Common Business: This helps with all of your good buildings, but of course the main one I focus on is the Elven Training Grounds.
Investment: I am not 100% certain on how this one works, but I think the more gold you have the more it increases. I am not sure if it decreases when you spend gold, I dont think it does. It gives me a 1977% boost so i took it.
Acquisition: Based on how many trophies you have, this can be a great pick up for you, it increases my production, so I took it.
Trade Routes: I love this node, the more Royal Exchanges I make, the more mana regen I get. Get this node for that TC spam.
Fusion: With all of the FC nodes I have picked, this was a no brainer
Vivication: HOLY MOTHER TERESA HOPPING ON A POGO STICK LOOK AT THOSE 87 ASSISTANTS
Decay: Yet another great node that increases production
Explosives: Hot damn this is truly going to blow something up: your production, and your mind. This nifty node has one hell of a kick in the rear to your production, forcing it to keep on marching up and up as your mana produced in the current game increases
Philosopher’s Stone: FMAB, anyone? On a serious note, it gives me a 40% bonus to how much my gems help, and that is just amazing
RAMPAGE: queue Dota Narrator. Anyway, so this node increases mana, which bolsters Augmentation, which bolsters your Elven Training grounds, which… ok I will stop, just take the damn node.
Invasion: This is why we have gotten so many assistant nodes, this right here helps out with a whopping 2878% production boost to ALL buildings, mostly Elven training grounds.
Formation: So basically, this will just skyrocket your CtA already, but in conjunction with Automatons, which will now count 215 times, I just could not not take this node.
Crusade: More assistants
Swarming: this is another amazing assistant booster
