I am currently overflowing with money as the Ottomans through trade and tax income from my many provinces, but to keep up with the large European nations I have a constant need for more monarch power (administrative, diplomatic and military points).

As far as I know the best way to actively increase my monarch point income is by hiring better advisors.

As money is not an issue, I could easily hire lvl 3 advisors in all categories, but unfortunately the candidates I get often are only lvl 1 or lvl 2.

Is there a way to influence the candidates for advisor slots to become better? (i.e. expensive level 3 advisors) I know this is random to a large degree and that you can get an additional advisor slot through ideas, but I am looking for any way to boost the quality of the candidates.

Don't think this would actually work, but will a new advisor spawn every time you hire one? If so, and money is no issue, you could keep hiring/firing lvl 1 advisors, untill a lvl 3 advisor appeared. –  Nix Jun 22 at 11:35

If I'm not wrong, you can get more available advisors through idea paths.

For example, the economic path opens one advisor slot :

Centralization

So does the administrative one.

Administrative

With the centralization bonus (from the economic path), I can choose from 4 different advisors :

And this for each type of advisor.

That should help you to get better advisors.

Other ways to get additional advisors include becoming emperor or papal controller. –  Lawton Aug 22 '13 at 16:32

Yes, you're right, I missed that one. –  Pierrick Bignet Aug 26 '13 at 19:33
