The Engineering perk tree has no mutually exclusive perks, allowing you to take advantage of all that is on offer. For the most part, this means improvements to build speeds of castles and walls initially, but eventually for all buildings. You can also increase the strength of fortifications and armor, decrease army morale loss while under siege, and enhance the effectiveness and damage of siege weapons.

Engineering Perks:

Skill Level 25:

  • Construction Expert: +30% building speed for castles and walls

Skill Level 50:

  • Ballistics: Catapults are 30% more effective

Skill Level 75:

  • Imperial Fire: Grants ability to build fire siege engines

Skill Level 100:

  • Improved Masonry: Fortifications are much stronger

Skill Level 125:

  • Armorcraft: +10% armor effectiveness

Skill Level 150:

  • Good Materials: +20% hit points for siege engines

Skill Level 175:

  • Heavier Siege Engines: +20% bombardment damage against other siege engines

Skill Level 200:

  • Wall Breaker: Increased damage to walls during sieges

Skill Level 225:

  • Resolute: Decreased morale loss during sieges

Skill Level 250:

  • Builder: x1.5 building development speed

Skill Level 275:

  • Everyday Engineer: Default town projects are 50% more effective

Tip: The only way to level the Engineering skill is by building a variety of siege equipment and using it. This can only be done viably at the mid-late stage of the game, when you have enough strength to lay siege to settlements. An ideal scenario, when a faction has only one settlement remaining, will allow you to build as many siege weapons as you want for as long as you want, maximising the build time. You can also choose to operate siege equipment in battles to earn more XP.
