Card Info

Frost Bolt
Card Icon Autocast.png Autocast: Every 2 seconds, tower hurls a frostly bolt that deals 60 / 65 / 70 / 78 damage to enemies in a 5m radius around its target, up to 90 / 95 / 105 / 117 in total.

  • The shot travels slow enough that swift creatures at a longer distance can dodge it.
  • The shots radius-based damage means that squads are more dangerous to the tower, since at point-blank projectiles will hit less of the squad and thus have reduced firepower.

Notes & Strategies

Cheap, but reliable. Defense Towers are versatile and applicable to most situations and maps, be it to protect an important location or pull enemy forces into its range to aid in a push. There is nothing the Defense Tower is bad at, but it is optimized for nothing as well.

Campaign PvE

Defense Towers suit Defending Hope very well, and can be used in the third section of Encounters with Twilight if you opt to defend. They can engage ground and airborne threats, so having some of them built can never do you wrong.

Random PvE

Building a Defense Tower near the first camp can let you pull in its units and aid in dispatching them to advance. Outside of this use, there is little reason to bring it into rPvE.
