And you have selected all the listed Phylarch bonuses before clicking "Activate"?


If so, could you make screenshots before and after activating (and include one for the above view as well. Especially checking agreement and skill upgrade speeds should definitely show a difference,

Those bonuses apply only when the plylarch boosts are activated. So they are applied for 3 hours. After that they return to their original times just so you know.

Yes, but the activation only lasts for three hours, therefore can be repeated at will and the process documented. IMO you might just have skipped or misconstrued one small step along the way. Let's do an example and a walk-through:

Since you listed the "Construction Speed Boost" as one of the skills you have developed, let us try going through the steps for this bonus:

  1. Wait until the last activation has run out.
  2. Go to a current construction or building upgrade and jot down the time remaining for this task.
  3. Go to "Select Bonuses" and make sure the "Construction Speed Boost" is checked.
  4. Check the list of selected Phylarch bonuses on the "Phylarch" tab to make sure the selected bonus is indeed listed.
  5. Click "Activate" on the Phylarch tab.
  6. Return to the current construction or building upgrade and jot down the time remaining for this task.

The two recorded construction values should now differ by the percentage equal to the bonus for "Construction Speed Boost". All this can be documented per screenshots along the way, just to make sure there's no small mistake.

Also, remember that this bonus will only be active for three hours (unless you reactivate), therefore the time remaining value will again increase when the activation has run out.

If you are confident that you have …


  1. … selected a skill, say the "Agreement Signing Speed" (or "Skill Discover Speed" or "Construction Speed Boost"), into an empty Phylarch slot, and …
  2. … activated the 3-hour Phylarch bonuses …


… then I'd suggest you send this to customer support, ideally, as I pointed out earlier, including screenshots such as …

Before activating Phylarch bonuses:


After activating Phylarch bonuses:


After Phylarch activation runs out 3 hours later:


My above screenshots obviously show a difference matching my agreement signing speed boost, your's presumably will not and the data you noted should reflect this, such as …

If you like, let us know how this turned out, as I haven't seen this error before.

It depends on which number you are looking at:

  1. The "update time" will, of course, reset to the original value since it indicates the duration of an upgrade including all current boosts and bonuses ...

  2. and the "time remaining" value within the progress bar will jump back to a value indicating the remaining duration without the Phylarch boost.

AFAIK this has never changed and is handled similarly for all other timed bonuses. A 25% speed increase in a 3-hour period for example will net you 45 min. = 180 min (3h) x 25%. I'm afraid you are simply looking at the wrong values and drawing the wrong conclusions.

First of all calm down Archon we are here to help you not fight with you. 

What I meant is that if you are upgrading a level 22 forge that needs more than 7 days to be upgraded to level 23, when you activate the phylarch for 3 hours the building time will be reduced for many hours.

But that reduction won't be real since the bonus only applies while the phylarch boost is activated.

Once the bonus from the phylarch stops the time will have been reduced by 3 hours (the time that has passed already) plus a couple of hours at the max (that is the bonus you get from that particular phylarch skill applied).

Maybe the bonus you get from the skill applied is less than 2 hours though.

Can't be sure since I haven't really looked into it.

This has been the case from the minute the phylarch appeared. 

All phylarch bonuses are temporary. They are applied only while the phylarch is active.

After 3 hours they are not effective.

You can use the construction boost bonuses from the general's abilities when they are added to your server.

They are permanent once chosen and they will be more helpful than the phylarch in my opinion.
