In Crusader Kings 3, the following learning perks give players huge advantages.
Even though Learning isn’t the most popular Lifestyle in Crusader Kings 3, that doesn’t mean that the Learning Perks are bad. There are three Learning themes and three Perk Trees. The three Perk Trees are Whole of Body, Scholar, and Theologian.
As with any Lifestyle in Crusader Kings 3, players will usually want to focus on one Perk tree so they can get a good Lifestyle Trait as soon as possible. But players still need to know which Learning Perks are the best, because that will change the order in which they unlock them, and some are good enough to make it worth going to a different tree.
If the character’s faith has a Theocratic clergy, the Faithful Perk will give +10 clergy opinion. This is great for making the realm priest pay more taxes and for impressing the head of faith, like the Pope. The Pope, for example, can help in many ways. He can give out Piety and cash, as well as divorces and excommunications that are good for people.
In Crusader Kings 3, though, other faiths will have Lay clergy instead of clergy. In this case, the buff of +5 same faith opinion reaches a much larger number of people. Often, everyone in a realm and the realms around it follow the same religion. This means that players have an extra +5 opinion with everyone in the realm.
When playing CK3, one of the first things players will want to do is hire a Court Physician. If their character or a member of their character’s family gets sick or hurt, a good doctor can mean the difference between life and death.
The studies of anatomy The first perk in the Whole of Body tree makes getting a Court Physician cheaper and also improves the results of the treatments they do. This should help people avoid bad surgeries and treatments that don’t work.
In CK3, the Whole of Body Trait and its tree are all about staying healthy and living longer, and the last Perk you can get before the Trait is a great summary of this way of life. The Healthy Perk just gives the player’s character a constant medium health boost. For example, this could make a character go from feeling sick to feeling fine. For now, this would mean that they would not die of natural causes.
Healthy is a very good Perk, but since it’s at the end of its tree, it wouldn’t make sense to try to get it without also trying to get the Whole of Body Trait. This whole tree can help counter some of Crusader Kings 3’s worst Traits, especially those that are born with health problems.
Crusader Kings 3 and other big strategy games don’t have to be about war all the time. Instead, players can try to advance their culture through the Middle Ages. The first perk you can get in the Scholar tree is the Scientific Perk, which gives cultural interest a big boost.
Cultural fascination is a game feature that lets players become interested in a new technology or idea and study it until it can be used. With this Perk, players will have a huge technological edge over other cultures and lands.
Taking care of stress in Crusader Kings 3 is hard, especially when players have to take care of their character’s mental health as well as an entire country. The Carefree Perk, which you can get second in the Whole of Body tree, helps a lot with stress management because any bad choice or bad event causes 20% less stress.
Carefree can be learned early on, so players can make their characters less stressed for almost their whole adult lives. This can keep the character from having a mental breakdown, which could lead to bad ways of living or even death.
Learn On The Job
Learn on the Job is one of the last Perks you can get in the Scholar tree, but the time it takes to get there is well worth it because it is so powerful. The player’s character will get 20% of the main skills of their Councillors. If the player managed their council well in CK3, this can be a pretty good deal.
Players can get +3 or +4 in any or all of these stats, for example, if they get lucky with powerful vassals who have great stats in Diplomacy, Stewardship, Martial Arts, or Intrigue. If a player’s realm is stable and they don’t need to give powerful vassals, they can bring lowborn prodigies onto the council. This makes the Learn on the Job Perk even more overpowered.
Know Thyself is not only the best Learning Perk in Crusader Kings 3, but it may also be one of the best Perks in the whole game. It’s the third skill in the Whole of Body tree, and it lets the player know when they will die of natural causes in one year.
Accidents and killings can happen, but if everything goes well, the player will have a whole Spacebar Clicker year to organize their realm and lay the groundwork for a smooth transfer of power. During this time, players can try to end any wars that aren’t necessary, save gold, and make sure that their current wealth matches what they want.
