This article is about skills researched at the university. For the Growth task, see Skills (task).

Skills are upgrades for the different aspects of the game, and is researchable at the university. Skills are only unlocked at when the university is built, and to upgrade each skill, the university level must match the skill level.

For every level a skill is upgraded, it raises a particular feature by 2% (with the exception of the Logistics skill which raises the warehouse capacity by 4% at every level, and the Magic skill which reduces the mana consumption by 2% at every level). For example, at level 3 Cultivation, the output of food is increased by 6%. The maximum boost at level 20 would be 40%. The boost can go up to 60% at level 30, however, a player would either need to aquire a Famous city or gain the position of Civic Custodian to raise the skills to level 30.
