Variants[edit]

Cannons[edit]

Regular Cannons are located inside towers, keeps and Stonemist Castle. For castles and keeps cannons are a Tier 1 structural upgrade; for towers they are a Tier 2 upgrade.

Master Cannons[edit]

Master Cannon are located at the five Ruins of Power. They do twice as much damage as regular cannons. It requires exactly 10 supply to build, so it can be built by one player. Others are able to help build it.
