You can easily check your overall construction or research speed bonuses at your palace (statistics -> economic -> general info).

But if you do your calculation with this value, you will not get the right results. That is why some of the bonuses act as a construction/research acceleration, others shorten the construction or research time and the third category which can reduce your

construction or research time is not even listed there.

Category A: These speed up bonuses accelerates, as the name implies, the construction or the research.

The following bonuses belong to category A: hero skills (Building I+II, Research I+II), hero equipment bonuses,

knowledge (Building I+II), shaman skills/powers and the oracle bonus.

Table 1: Effect of category A bonuses (example: construction time of 100 h)

special fact: The effect weakens with each additional percent.

(saved time for the first 100 %: 50 h; saved time for the second 100%: 16,6 h; saved time for the third 100%: 8,4 h)

Category B: These bonuses work as a time reduction.

The following bonuses belong to category B: town skin (up to 10%), daily bonus (10%), bonus for winning kvk or kvk revenge (10%),

building/research booster (up to 35%)

Table 2: Effect of category B bonuses (example: construction time of 100 h)

special fact: No weakening. Each additional percent has the same impact as the first. That is why you want to get as much as

possible of the category B bonuses.

It works like category B, but will be calculated afterwards. Otherwise it would be possible to reduce the construction

or research time to 0 with this additional boost.

The maximum amount of "help" you can get for each construction or research depends on your palace level (palace level +4).

Example 1: Construction time without bonuses: 100 h

Category A: knowledge, hero skills and hero equipment: 300% building speed bonus -> factor: 0,25

Categroy B: kvk bonus and town skin: 20% -> factor: 0,8

Category C: palace level 21 (up to 25% additional building speed bonus) -> factor: 0,75

100 h x 0,25 x 0,8 x 0,75 = 15 h

Example 2: Construction time without bonuses: 100 h

Maybe you can not afford any legendary equipment right now. But by raising the category B bonus you can compensate for that.

(equipment now just unusual, 2 Victors Bracelet)

Category A: knowledge, hero skills and hero equipment: 220,8% building speed bonus -> factor: 0,312

Category B: kvk bonus, town skin and building speed boost 30%: 50% building speed bonus -> factor: 0,5

Category C: palace level 21 (up to 25% additional building speed bonus) -> factor: 0,75

100 h x 0,312 x 0,5 x 0,75 = 11,7 h

I recommend to use the category C bonus completely, for very long construction and research times.

In order to take advantage of the category b boost, you can build buildings with a shorter construction time, which do not depend on

the category c bonus, first and start the building with the longest construction time just before the end of the category b boost.
