Research Expertise is a research option found under the Basic Information tab that is inherently unlocked for research. The research itself affects the research minigame, helping to better research in the future. Firstly, it allows a 25% chance of retrieving any aspect placed into a hex. Secondly, it allows one to see what aspects make up an aspect that is hovered over, such as, for example, hovering over Lux, which would show it consisting of Ignis and Aer aspects. Thirdly, if one is having difficulty researching something, it is now possible to, if Knowledge Fragments are present in the player's inventory, to consume these Knowledge Fragments and add, to that singular Research Theory, a single point to each Primal, allowing one to continue their research.
