Guide: Bound on account Artifact Research items

The information below is based on what I got from the PTR and my own thoughts.   
This page will be updated during time when more information is out.

 
In patch 7.1.5 you can buy Artifact Research items that are bound on account.

How does it work

There are 4 different volumes you can upgrade your artifact research on other characters.

Volume 1 – Level 5 Artifact Research
Volume 2 – Level 10 Artifact Research
Volume 3 – Level 15 Artifact Research
Volume 4 – Level 20 Artifact Research

But they are called in a certain way:

Volume 1
Volume 1 & 2
Volume 1-3
Volume 1-4

Which seems to be the same as above, since you will be able to buy one of these (since it’s a compendium) depending on how far you are in your Artifact Knowledge on your “main character”.

When can I buy the next volume?

My guess is:

Volume 1 requires that you have at least level 10 Artifact Knowledge level.
Volume 2 requires that you have at least level 15 Artifact Knowledge level.
Volume 3 requires that you have at least level 20 Artifact Knowledge level.
Volume 4 requires that you have at least level 25 Artifact Knowledge level.

Where do I buy Bound on account artifact research Compendium?

You buy it from your Artifact researcher at your class order hall.

How much do they cost?

You buy the Artifact Research Compendiums with Order Resources.
I have Artifact Knowledge 17 on my character in the PTR so I could only check the price for volume 2. If you have the price on the other volumes, please share in chat. My guess is that each volume costs 500 Order Resources.

Volume 1
Will allow you to research Artifact Knowledge level 5 when used in conjunction with all unused Artifact Research Documents.
Costs: 500 Order Resources?

Volume 1&2
Will allow you to research Artifact Knowledge level 10 when used in conjunction with all unused Artifact Research Documents.
Costs: 1000 Order Resources (in PTR)

Volume 1-3
Will allow you to research Artifact Knowledge level 5 when used in conjunction with all unused Artifact Research Documents.
Costs: 1500 Order Resources?

Volume 1-4
Will allow you to research Artifact Knowledge level 5 when used in conjunction with all unused Artifact Research Documents.
Costs: 2000 Order Resources?
