Siege Tower - Stronghold Legends Game Units
|Cost in Gold
|Cost in Honour
Siege Towers are available to all factions in the game, costing just 150 gold.
Though slow in movement, Siege Towers have the ability to move straight up to an enemy wall, lower the platform and allow vast amounts of troops up onto the enemy walls in a short space of time.
Note that Siege Towers can only do this on walls, and not on Gatehouses or Towers.
Siege Towers react well to missile fire by ranged units, and can sustain a fair amount of damage. However, melee troops on the ground can quickly overwhelm it if they can get close enough.
The Ice Queen can also cause damage to Siege Towers, but not actually freeze them. Good protection is therefore required when utilising this unit.
Once a Siege Tower has lowered its platform in this way against a section of wall, it remains immobile throughout the entire duration of the game and to remove it, the unit must be disbanded.
You will need 150 gold along with 1 peasant from the campfire before you can recruit a Siege Tower.
