This contraption, made from a coil and a rod, is buzzing with electricity and can shoot it far, zapping anyone who comes into range.

Useful Info

Lightning spires are uncommon defensive structures whose purpose is simple: to shoot bolts of electricity at any hero who stumbles into their range. They are fairly fragile, but nearly immune to most elemental spells. Outside of Summon Lightning Spire, they are extremely rare, but can be found defending certain vaults, including one rune vault in the Abyss.


Spell set I
Slot1 Electrical Bolt (3d6) Natural flag

Tips & Tricks

  • Their attacks are weak enough that most characters can survive charging in and smashing a single one, but electricity resistance wouldn't hurt (and is very highly recommended if you intend to charge a pack of them).
  • Ranged fighters can handle them easily by shooting them to death from outside their range. Fire as soon as they enter your line of sight.
