Cannon

Every 2 seconds, tower launches a cannon ball that deals 140 / 145 / 160 / 167 damage to enemies in a 8m radius around its target, up to 210 / 220 / 240 / 250 in total. Knocks back small units. Affects ground targets only.


Cannon is a powerful ability that delivers a damage burst that also disrupts small units. Because of this, the Cannon Tower can reliably contact most incoming assaults even when facing medium creatures due to its reliable damage output.

That said, it cannot shoot flying creatures. Make certain to defend it from an airborne assault.

Tips & Strategies

Cannon Towers are powerful stationary fortifications that boast an incredible amount of life points. Because of this, the tower can hold its own against many attacks.

When paired with support from Skyelf Templar Card Icon Skyelf Templar, Kobold Trick Card Icon Kobold Trick, Glacier Shell Card Icon Glacier Shell, and Shield Building Card Icon Shield Building, the Cannon Tower can become a very difficult force to destroy.

Campaign PvE

Cannon Towers are incredibly solid for maps that are defensive, such as Siege of Hope and Defending Hope. However, they must be protected from airborne assaults.

Pairing them with Defense Tower Card Icon Defense Tower can offer some anti-air capability. However you can also support the Cannon Tower with archers and your own airborne units.

Random PvE

Cannon Towers can serve as a warning system for attacks on your later orbs and wells, especially in higher level difficulties where multiple paths are present.

However, towers typically have little use.

PvP

Typically, building towers in PvP is seldom reliable due to their stationary nature and the multitude of siege units. Nevertheless, Cannon Tower has its perks.

Strengths

  • Cannon Towers have a significant pool of HP.

With 2000 life points, the Cannon Tower has equivalent durability to a Power Well, which is innately a resilient target. This makes the tower difficult to destroy without significant firepower.

  • Cannon Towers deal adequate damage to be threatening.
While it lacks the capacity to hit airborne targets, Cannon Towers remain a solid damage source in combat, capable of defeating most combatants and still remain standing.

Weaknesses

  • Tower Vulnerabilities.

Cannon Towers like other towers, are immobile and extremely vulnerable to long-range siege units.

  • Vulnerable to Airborne Units
As it is unable to fire upon them, airborne units like Skyfire Drake Card Icon Skyfire Drake are a death sentence to this tower unless it is supported by units or other towers who can fight off a flying target.
