- When ready, play a Vanilla faction (Good Faction for Dwarf, Evil for Drow). Choose one that will be able to afford the Secrets of the Underworld. Do not buy the Vanilla faction's Unique building upgrade until you have bought the prestige Trade Treaty.
- Once affiliated with the prestige faction, buy their Unique building quest, Unique Building upgrade, and then the Secrets of the Underworld. With the latter, the research button and prestige research will show up.
After you have unlocked Prestige research, the Vanilla unique building and Vanilla researches can be acquired before purchasing the prestige trade treaty. Plan in advance to not use up all your RUS on Vanilla researches, as prestige researches only show up after you affiliate with a prestige faction.
