The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! The day when Building Blueprints and Research Scrolls flow freely and upgrading your Citadel past 30 is almost as easy as it was pre-30… Almost being the keyword here.
Previously, the only way players could obtain Blueprints and Research Scrolls was either as drops from attacking level 4, 5, and 6 Garulas and Flans, or by purchasing a gold pack. Even in the best pack the maximum amount of Building Blueprints you could buy in a pack was 100, then 200 in the follow-up “Thank You” pack.
During the holidays, when all of the Garulas and Flans were replaced by special holiday monsters, it was literally impossible to obtain any Blueprints or Scrolls without buying a pack.
Now, that dismal era of getting 5 Building Blueprints from attacking a level 5 Garula seems so far away. With the latest update, we have seen up to 480 Research Scrolls or Blueprints in a single pack, in addition to 100 of the new Royal Research and Builders chests. Opening 100 of these chests at a time can yield anywhere from 1500 to 3000 Royal Research Scrolls or Building Blueprints.
That means that players who have already reached level 40 before the latest update had to buy 20-30 packs to get the same amount of Scrolls and Blueprints that are now available in just one. So the next time you see one of the OG’s in your realm, you should definitely let them know how much you respect and appreciate their struggle.
While Garulas and Flans are still nowhere to be found, there are many new ways to obtain both Royal Scrolls and Blueprints and Exalted Tomes, for free.

After you upgrade your Citadel from 39 to 40, you will start seeing packs for Exalted Tomes and Blueprints. If you already upgraded your Citadel to 40 and still need Royal Scrolls and Blueprints, you can still purchase the 100 Royal Research Scroll Chest or Builders Blueprint Chest pack. For level 40+ players, you can access this secret pack by going to the upgrade requirements screen of any building or research and clicking on the Scrolls or Blueprints icon. This will bring you to the pack that is normally displayed to Citadel 30-39 players and allow you to buy 100 Royal Chests.
