Tips

-The Knowledge Vault tends to be a high priority target for base raiding by the enemy because if a Masari player loses this building, much of their technology is also lost.

-The loss of all Knowledge Vaults means any units, structures, and upgrades enabled by the Vaults may no longer be produced. Any Flight Machinae already built may still produce Inquisitors, as only the structure itself is enabled by the Vault.

-Because of the importance of this structure, experienced Masari players tend to build and upgrade more than one of these structures to avoid losing all their technology if a Knowledge Vault is destroyed.
