Disambig icon.png This article is about towers in WvW. For towers in Edge of the Mists, see Tower (Edge of the Mists).
Towers are a type of structure in World vs World. Towers are smaller versions of keeps with a single gate and entrance portal and a single wall layer with a few breakable segments. They can be upgraded to have a pot of oil, a cannon and a mortar to help with defense.

Towers can initially stockpile 100 supply, which is delivered to them by supply caravans from nearby resource camps. Upgrades increase this cap; tier 1 upgrades increase it by 25, tier 2 upgrades by 50 and tier 3 upgrades by 75, for a maximum of 700 supply once all upgrades are purchased.

Towers are worth 10 points per 15 minute tick for the holding team.
