- Warlock level DOES affect research rate on the Live Severs
- Refer to the Library article for a list of what will and will not increase the research rate of warlocks
A warlock is a researcher and ranged unit in Dungeon Overlord. Warlocks record their research in books, scrolls and globes, which are then picked up from Library tiles. The warlock is the most important creature in Dungeon Overlord, as it is the only creature who can accumulate research, which is critical to advancing quickly in the game.
A creature slot not used by a warlock should be seen as wasted research unless you cannot spare the tiles for a bigger library, so non-warlock creatures should generally only be used if they provide benefits that justify this opportunity cost, such as effective raiding, stealth detection, or critical dungeon defense. There is an exception to this for obsessive min-maxing players: you could theoretically shock your warlocks on a rotating pattern to have a constant increase the effective number of warlocks in your Dungeon. You would need to plan out the exact numbers, then you would need to sign in the minute that the efficiency starts to drop and shock the next set of warlocks, and you would need to do this perfectly multiple times a day, including when you should be sleeping.

Researching with Warlocks Edit
Many players fill their first two expansion Dungeons with just warlocks in order to gain as much research/hour as possible, and place large numbers of bookcases in one and eventually both libraries to maximize the research yield per warlock.
Each upgrade to the Library will allow for more warlocks to accumulate research at a time. In addition, an extra warlock can research for every 4 library tiles placed. This can be seen in the room bonus labeled "Maximum Worker Bonus:". The number there denotes the maximum number of warlocks that can research in that Dungeon. More information on Libraries and research can be found in their respective pages on the Wiki.
