"The King’s Tower", once the beacon of mankind was an illustrious gleaming tower from whence the old king ruled over his kingdom. It wasn’t until the old king was betrayed by his younger brother, Prince Edwin, that the tower began its descent into darkness. The tower in which so many cruel deeds took place now stands enshrouded by darkness as if it were a monument to evil."'
Towers of Esperia
The four basic Towers of Esperia, The Tower of Light, The Brutal Citadel, The World Tree, and The Forsaken Necropolis, are unlocked after completing stage 14-40 in the Campaign. Both Celestial Sanctum and Infernal Fortress are unlocked after completing stage 29-60.
There are currently only 6 other Towers themed after their respective factions, each with 570 floors. Players may only use Heroes from the faction that the tower is themed after. Players can only complete 20 floors per day and the different towers are rotated out on a daily basis.
Towers of Esperia Rewards
There are campaign quests you can complete by finishing floors in all Faction Towers. A detailed list of rewards can be found here.
Tower of Light - Lightbearer Heroes
Opens every: Monday/Friday/Sunday
This shining edifice was erected millennia ago by King Arvon in memory of his grandfather, King Luther, the first king of men and the first bearer of the light. Many champions of men have attempted to reach the zenith of this inspiring monument, seeking to pay homage to the old king, yet have failed in surmounting the challenges that face them along the way. The path to the old king’s sky tomb is treacherous and full of hidden dangers. Only the most resilient and resourceful are capable of summiting this cloud-capped trial of stone to pay their respects to King Luther.
The Brutal Citadel - Mauler Heroes
Opens every: Tuesday/Friday/Sunday
This towering spectacle, cut into the cliffs, is a perfect embodiment of the will of the Maulers, shaped like a beautiful but beastly towering razor, jagged-edged and dangerously sharp. For the Maulers, this is where they make their name as warriors and they take pride in coming here to test themselves. The steep, craggy staircases test the mettle of those undertaking the trial, and the elite Maulers stationed in the tower stand ready to face challengers. With every ascent, they can feel the biting, murderous intent.
The World Tree - Wilder Heroes
Opens every: Wednesday/Saturday/Sunday
This gargantuan tree draws Wilders of all stripes to its impossibly wide trunk. Inside, it is criss-crossed with meandering corridors, not carved but integrated into its growth pattern through ancient magics. The interior surfaces are covered with ropes of branch and vine that support the wondrous tree like a woody musculature. Those with an affinity for the forest find themselves inexplicably drawn to this behemoth, as to ascend to the canopy is to find oneself communing with the heart of the natural world itself.
The Forsaken Necropolis - Graveborn Heroes
Opens every: Thursday/Saturday/Sunday
Once a place of final rest for the dearly departed, the necropolis now houses a new ominous tenant. Long gone are the days where the dead could rest and the living honor their memory. The evil that walks these halls has warped the natural order into a twisted perversion of itself. Dread energies enshroud this accursed place, where the once peaceful silence has been supplanted by the skittering sounds of bones against cold stone.
Celestial Sanctum - Celestial Heroes
Opens every: Wednesday/Friday/Sunday
Since the outbreak of the Infernal Surge, the gods have walked the land, but they have never stopped searching for a way to restore their godhood. At the place where Honas first created the world, the gods used their divine powers to erect a white tower that rose high into the clouds, where they had once resided, to allow them to gaze down from the heavens once more. The only way for the Celestials to hold on to their divinity is to burn their way through the illusions of the tower and reach the peak, so they can once again feel the glory of a true god.
Infernal Fortress - Hypogean Heroes
Opens every: Thursday/Saturday/Sunday
Shrouded in a mask of cloud, it menaces in the form of a Hypogean; sinister, mysterious, and deadly. Twisted thorns curl around and stretch beyond one's gaze into the infinite darkness beyond, tempting all life to sink forever into misery and torment. Only Hypogeans can step foot in the tower. Once a mortal steps inside, he is doomed to corruption by the evil that fills every nook, to become mere morsels for new born Hypogeans.
Don't expect to be able to use Faction Bonuses to your advantage. While you are restricted to using 1 type of Faction for each tower, your enemies will not have that restriction.
Because of this, it's recommended that you should approach each stage with a higher team Attack Rating than that of each stage.
If you are having difficulty completing a stage you can try re-arranging your hero formation or checking out team compositions that others have used. Sometimes even just swapping your two frontline heroes can make all the difference. You can also use the help of some mercenary heroes.
