The Battle Tower is the only purely defensive structure available on normal build plots. Its arrows can be upgraded, and archers can enter it and shoot out from its windows.

The Battle Tower can be built by all factions except Lothlorien, which has archers in their castle/camp buildings by default.

For more information about defensive capabilities besides the Battle Tower, see Defensive Build Plots.

Function Edit

The Battle Tower serves to attack nearby enemies. It can also be garrisoned with archers to increase its effectiveness.

Strategy Edit

As a defensive structure, the Battle Tower is best placed close to the entrance of your base (factions with walls). On the build plot on the other side of the entrance, it is suggested that you build a unit-boosting structure such as a Well or Heroic Statue to aid your troops as they fight to defend the more important buildings within. With this combination, the enemy will be hard-pressed to gain ground (especially if you upgrade the Battle Tower with its arrow damage and/or garrison it with archers). It can also be useful to give extra protection to normal outpost expansions.
