Important Note (About Towers #[3,4]):
[+] SPOILER
The positions of those two (3,4) VERY SPECIAL towers is that #3 will be in the Western and #4 in the Eastern corner A small path will be leading to them that some enemies will follow these 2 paths that will lead them to shortcuts (they will be pretty high and close to the entrance too). Now the thing is that if 10 or more enemies pass through the tower's respective shortcut then the tower will be permanently destroyed and replaced with an unsellable ruin also only 1 tower slot has some reach in each of the paths. So a player will really have to invest if he wants to keep one of these towers alive and it would be really hard, but possible to keep both of them working up to the end of the level (An achievement should be given if the level is beaten with both alive) as they barely defend themselves and their upgrades are more general.
Spending money to improve the mines income rate is a bit strange. Doing it early on will get the most out of it but you will need to survive through the first waves with a low budget AND keep the tower alive long enough to pay up. If you build it relatively late it will get you a nice small bonus, a bit like betting that you can keep it alive.


5)Stone Golem's Quarters
Description:"These ancient carvens host Golems, we could hire them to aid us in battle or at least throw some rocks."

6)Warlock's Guild

Cost:250+[n(previous price)*x (the variable).]{reusable}


Similar to:...
Notes:This tower is meant to be on the center of an endless map hence the passive and the + increasing prices which means that every time after use this ability will increase in cost by multiplying it's current to the variable. You can actually spam the bombers and suppliers right after the last air unit has lifted so if you saved up for a moment but you still want the passive boost to stack. Still having trouble with the variable x though.

Precision is spelled incorrectly.

Why does the shaman throw knives, and why are they so UP? Give him something cool to use. It's hard to measure the strength of a tower if it's made for a specific level, but I get the feeling that slowing knives is incredibly OP.

The Hoplites are cool, but it isn't stated how long the stun lasts for. Then other skills are pretty simple, so I'm not quite sure why they were worth writing down and posting. At least, though, they are balanced.

Well, the Frontiers artillery upgrade for stuns doesn't say the duration either. The game doesn't give heal rate or exact spawn time for heroes and units, or exact bonus damage or range for star upgrades in general. As long as it has the same level of detail as the games themselves, I'm fine with it.

The stun is for 3 seconds. The slowing darts (changed from knives) had wrong values which have been corrected.

Do you like the idea of the secondary objective of investing in these two towers to keep them alive. Pleas tell me your opinion.

The towers' concept are very cool. While some of them are balance, namely the gnomish lab and the Hoplites, other are UP, especially the Shaman with knives of only 1-4 damage. It seems like he is one for special effects, not killing.

Actually yes, that's the point. I imagine this towers as being on a point of consecrations wearing down magical armor and slowing enemies so they gather in groups and are vanurable to artillery fire.

Also the gnomish lab (which i beefed up a lot) is supposed to be under constant strain (the most difficult to defend) so it will require the player to most likely invest more on the tower that reaches into it's path and maybe put a hero there or keep spamming reinforcments. The level is supposed to give you good bonuses but for the two towers to be standing after the end, you will need extreme skills and devotion into mastering it (achievement material)

Stone Golems are quite overpowered. Look at Sylvan Elves: they have no armor, 1/5 of the health, and most importantly, don't respawn. Mercenaries that respawn seems kind of unfair to me. Also, "You summon 1/2/3 respawnable stone golems that have the stats mentioned above and a 3%/5%/10%" makes no sense: 3/5/10% chance of what?

The Warlock's are pretty cool, I like the third ability a lot.

Chance of stunning each enemy for 1 sec (I forgot to finish the sentence lol), also I upped the cost quite a lot and it is a 30 seconds respawn timer sooo...
Anyway thank you for the feedback, what is your favourite 1-6 tower. Which of the abilities do you prefer? Is there something that seems unbalanced. ( I have edited all the towers severly so I would recommend checking the numerical values again (bold letters) if you are intrested.

The Swordman upgrade is probably mistaken for something else. Its effect has no relation to its name.
