Research Project – Cannon Technology
Cannon Technology is the easiest project to gain Cannons Research School XP. It takes Research Lab Scientist Duty Officer and 1 Trionium Gas. Gives 6,000 Cannons XP and lasts for 20 hours. Although it is very easy to run just this same project over and over again, it is not the fastest way to level up. Those 1 hour projects under any Item section would be better choice, provided you have enough materials for them.
