Abilities and UpgradesEdit

Battle Upgrades can be improved after being placed on the battle field. Upgrading abilities during a battle costs mana. As your tower increases in level, your abilities and upgrades can also increase in power, but at a higher mana cost. Not all abilities change or upgrade with level. 

Poison Arrows upgrade is unlocked at card level 2 and Bigger Bows is unlocked at level 3.

Defensive StrategyEdit

Archer tower is a versatile turret which is one of the best choices throughout the game's process. A well-placed archer tower can guard many lanes at the same time, due to it's long range and fast-shooting speed. Archer tower can be excellent on birds because of its poison arrow upgrade, also with a very cheap buying price (50 mana) and high number of towers allowed (5), archer tower is a wise choice in every player's strategy.

Archer tower can be placed at the start, middle, or end of the lane, they are effective in any role. After putting your key towers (Volcano, Poison, Slowdown) to their positions, fill all empty slots with archer towers.

It's generally a good idea to upgrade the first level of Poison Arrow early in a match because it is inexpensive and provides a considerable damage bonus in addition to the poison modifier (which is excellent against birds).

In Avian Tower, where the roads to your flags are usually designed with complexity, archer tower would form the cornerstone for your defensive lay-out, however, it is advisable to utilize Bolas first, as it's high DPS against bird can be your key to victory.
