Engineering Quarter is one of the game's most important buildings. You can upgrade Towers here as well as research new towers and give them new skills and talents.

Improving Towers Edit

Your Towers can be improved in three ways:

  • Fortify: Makes your towers stronger. It requires gold and resources (first Rainbow Ore, then Fairy Wood, and later Black Gold). These are won from world levels and Level Taxes. Plus there is a cooldown between tower upgrades, which means you cannot improve many levels at once. You have to do it little by little. Each upgrade adds some minutes based on the current level (for example 15 minutes when upgrading from level 19 to 20, or 30 minutes when upgrading from level 20 to 21), and when the timer passes 1 hour you need to wait. In practice this means that you can make a limited number of consecutive upgrades before you have to wait. As with all timers you can use diamonds to speed things up
  • Research: Unlocks new towers. Requires gold (specific items in Facebook), Dark Soul Crystal and Notch Rock
  • Talents: Unlocked at Kingdom Level 30, require Stars and Tear of Shiva

NOTE: The game terminology treats the starting towers as tier 0, the first upgrade as tier 1, and the maximum upgrade tier 3 towers. These towers can each gain up to two special skills, but this does not change the tier.

Fortify Edit

Every upgrade increases Tower damage (and HP for Barracks) and gives it 1 star. 4 stars raises Tower to the next level.

For Arrow, Mage and Cannoner Towers each upgrade increases damage by 4% (most of the time) or 5%. For example, upgrading Cannon towers from level 14-2 stars to level 14-3 stars changes the bonus from 249% to 254%.

For Barracks - damage by 3% and 16HP most of the time, with an occasional 4% and 17HP. For example, upgrading Barracks from level 16-3 stars to Level 17-no stars changes the bonuses from 196% to 200% and from 1023 to 1040.

Research Edit

Research unlocks the higher tiers and skills of the towers

Note: Tier 3 Towers do not have any special effects beyond the normal damage and range increase until those effects are researched at the Smith and then enabled in battle at the cost of some goods. For example, an oiler will not actually cause a slow effect on mobs until its Jumbo Vat ability is activated.

Talents Edit

Tower Talent Access

Unlock at Kingdom level 30

Each tower has 5 talents and all talents are limited to level 10 as maximum.

To upgrade all talents, you need 600 Stars and 24000 Tear of Shiva. Strategy: Tears of Shiva are more useful here than on Soldier upgrades, since they don't only increase battle power but also improve the tower defense part of the game.

Item map star Star Yellow stars earned from world map battles
Item Tear of ShivaTear of Shiva Purchase from the Jewel Crafter, 50% chance to get from ransom in the Prison, can be obtained from the Crown Port when exploring a Mining Area, Woodlands or an Animal Herd (2 at a time, and must win a fight against a particular monster)

Arrow Tower Edit

Although not equipped with great damage, arrow towers have a wide attack radius. Can attack flying enemies.

(use arrow towers on paths with lots of low-armor enemies)

Arrow Tower Tiers Edit

  1. Arrow Tower - cost to build: 70, base dmg 150 - 200, attack speed 650ms, range 140
    Although not equipped with great damage, arrow towers have a wide attack radius.
  2. Marksman Tower, cost to upgrade: 100, base dmg 250 - 350, attack speed 600ms, range 150
    With better equipped archers, these towers have better range and damage.
  3. Hands of God Tower, cost to upgrade: 160, base dmg 350 - 510, attack speed 550ms, range 160

  4. Jungle Warfare, cost to upgrade: 245, base dmg 365 - 600, attack attack speed 500ms, range 170
    Rangers that choose the path of jungle warfare, they shoot armor-penetrating arrows from the shadows at amazing speeds.
    • Torque Bow : Made from the wood of ancient forest, these bows have much better range.(passive skill: increase range of the tower by 80 at level 3)
    • Focus : Each additional arrow taken by an enemy from the same tower deals more damage.(passive skill: very ineffective due to almost unnoticeable amount of damage increase during battle.)
  5. Sniper Lookout, cost to upgrade 260, base dmg 830 - 1500, attack speed 1200ms, range 210
    Rangers that choose the path of the sniper, they shoot from distances dealing heavy damage to single targets.
    • .50 Cal : Rifleman has a chance to take out an enemy in one head shot.(active skill: work similarly to punisher of geo tower)(enemies appear with a crosshair icon). Initial purchase costs 250 and offers a 20% chance to one shot kill or deal 3-5 times damage. Second and third purchase each cost 200 more with 60% chance to one shot kill or deal 5-7 or 7-9 times damage respectively.
    • Tranquilizer : An ungraded tranquilizer to deal with bigger, badder monsters.(active skill: stun an enemy for a short time)
  6. Assassin Syndicate, cost to upgrade 250, base dmg 600 - 935, attack speed 800ms, range 170
    Assassins are rangers trained in the arts of the shadows and use deadly daggers to attack enemies.
    • Fly Cutter : Refined, magic imbued steel. These blades bounce to one additional enemy when thrown.(passive skill: Actually bounces to two additional enemies, not one)
      Fly cutter - The King of Towers00:08

      Fly cutter - The King of Towers

    • Explosive Shot : Designed to explode on impact, these bullets leave their traget burning.(active skill: One of the assassins throws a bomb that creates a large burning area on the ground. Anything standing in the flames will continue to receive damage. Seems to be a relatively short cooldown, and the two assassins in the tower each have their own bombs. Multiple flaming grounds stack on the damage, so an enemy standing in the middle of five fires dies very quickly)(burning damage increased per upgrades)

BarracksEdit

Basic barracks used to house new recruits. Do not confuse with barracks, the building used to recruit soldiers for the PVP part of the game.

Cannot attack fliers, except Coliseum update Gladiators if they have the Pike upgrade, and Clergymen from the Hall of Divinity.

(Works best to stall fast but weak enemies so other towers have time to kill them before they speed past the tower. Or to stall some enemies until others arrive so they're all bunched up for area-of-effect towers and blizzards to hit. On bosses who kill even Sir Lance Alotte in one hit, a cheap Tier 1 Guard Barrack stalls them just as well as an expensive Tier 4 Cavalry Quarters or Coliseum)

Try to hold enemies in place with militia, barracks, and stuns to bunch them up for the cannon blasts to hit all of them at once. Can not target fliers (splash damage will still hit fliers if there a cannon tower hits a ground unit under the flier), except for the Bombadier's Tracker Shot.

Untitled picture3

Cannoner Tiers Edit

1.  Cannoner Cost to build : 100, base dmg 300 - 450, attack speed 2700ms, range 150

2.  Artilliar, cost to upgrade: 150, base dmg 550 - 900, attack speed 2600ms, range 160

3.  Mortarer, cost to upgrade: 240, base dmg 950 - 1350, attack speed 2600ms, range 170

4a.  Bombadier (Slow attack speed), base dmg 1315 - 1970, attack speed 2400ms, range 190

  • Shrapnel Shot : to help deal with hordes of monsters, the shrapnel shot deal damage in a range. (damage = (initial damage x multiplier) / number of enemies)
  • Tracker Shot : Equipped with most advanced technology, these bullets automatically seek enemies. These missiles can hit flying enemies.

4b.  Dragooner (Very fast attack speed) (Can hit 1-3 enemies at once) Cost to upgrade: 320, base dmg 250 - 350, attack speed 250ms, range 190

  • Broiling Flames : A super heated bullet dealing 3000~5000 damage in an area when enemies dies. Upgrades to 9000-15000 damage. Unfortunately this is a fixed number, so its percentage increase in tower damage will decrease with tower levels.
  • (passive skill: The enemy hit directly by the dragon receives a debuff with a flame icon above its head. On death, that enemy deals some damage around it to other enemies. Note that only the direct target of the dragon hit by it, not the splash damage on any other enemies near it, receives this debuff).
  • Dragon's Anger : Refined with dragon essence, unleash 2.5 fire damage upon your enemies, cool-down: 8 seconds. Will upgrade to 3 times damage with 5 second cool down, although the actual attack rate of this ability seems to be more random and sometimes faster. Of note, dragon's anger will attack flying enemies.
  • (Active skill. Makes a ring of fire on the ground, enemies inside of the ring take damage. But sadly not that much.)

4c.  Oiler (Average attack speed), base dmg 530 - 1200, attack speed 1200ms, range 190

  • Ignition Oil : Stepping in this oil, causes enemies to be more easily ignited.
  • (Enemies will get a black aura debuff. Affected enemies received 3x or more damage from Dragooners. It doesn't seem to interact with assassin burning bombs)
  • Jumbo Vat : This oil designed to be thick and goopy is very effective in slowing down enemies
  • (active skill: Fires a blob of oil which creates a big oil puddle on the ground which lasts about 5 seconds. Enemies move very slowly while on the puddle. Rather long cool-down.)
