The Karst Research Academy is an infrastructure structure located on the east of the Great Lakes expansion area. It was originally introduced on March 24, 2016 as part of the timed quest called Mysterious Crater.[1]

A total of 70 assets are needed to complete construction of the Karst Research Academy. This is equivalent to 70 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
