|The most basic defense tower. It shoots arrows at monsters automatically.|
|Price per Unit||15|
|Tech Needed||Expert Construction|
It can be upgraded into a heavy shooting tower.
Placing and Removing[edit | edit source]
The tower can be placed on top of any supporting surface. Foreground blocks placed right on top of it may disturb the tower's shots.
If the tower is deconstructed by dwarfs, all components of the tower can be recovered, allowing it to be rebuilt in time. When the tower is destroyed by enemies however, all the components will be lost.
Damage and Vulnerability[edit | edit source]
Wooden towers deal relatively low damage, apparently on par with the wooden bow used in its construction. Small numbers of them are best used indoors as a defense against ghosts. In larger numbers they can provide long range supporting fire against monster waves, but care must be taken as they can be easily overwhelmed if left unattended. Placing these towers on elevated bridges and blocking the path of monsters with spikes will greatly improve their survivability.
Range and Firing Arc[edit | edit source]
Wooden towers have a long range but also a limited firing arc. It has a range of 8 squares, firing in a restricted arc within ±45° of the horizontal. The tower cannot attack enemies along the diagonal. Arrows fired from the tower will be obstructed by solid blocks, but they can otherwise pass through bridges, ladders, other towers and dwarfs.
