Research is a series of bonuses and procs that you can obtain if your account has the Lost Eden expansion pack.
(Note: players using the free play option do not get access to research).
There are two forms of research. The first is a set of 7 profession-specific research lines called Personal Research, that raise specific skills and give access to Procs. The second type of research is called Global Research, and grants access to mechs and turrets and upgrades for them. Global Research is raised cumulatively by your entire faction; Personal Research must be paid for by your own character.

The Research Window[edit]

To open the research window just hit shift+o or hit the research button on the GUI. In this window there are 3 tabs:

The Research Allocation Page
  • Allocate Research:
This tab allows you to change the percentage of XP or SK per gain that will be used for research and show you what you've already accomplished in research that you've started.
The Research Available Page
  • Available Research:
This tab shows all research lines you can currently put research into, and allows you to change your research goals.
The Research Finished Page
  • Finished Research:
This shows all research completed by yourself and your faction.

Personal Research[edit]

Personal Research Caps[edit]

Personal Research caps at 10% of the total research cost, so you must get 20 xp/sk rewards at minimum to level new research. If the amount of XP or SK that would be sent into research exceeds this cap, the amount not used in research will carry over into your XP/SK pool.
