Inside this building live fanatic guards who spend all their time awake shooting arrows at every enemy in sight.

Archery towers on PvP servers will shoot arrows at enemy players. On the Freedom Isles PvE servers, they are purely decorative.

The shooting range for a Archery tower is 10-15 tiles and the range and speed will also increase based on the quality.


  • At least 40 fine carpentry is required to create, as well as to continue building an archery tower.
  • Have to be built at least 20 tiles apart (19 tiles between them) from another archery tower.
  • Needs to be built on a flat tile.
  • They can be created on the same tiles as guard towers.
  • Automatically centers on the tile it's created on.
  • Cannot be picked up.
  • Attaching of materials is done on the same tile the unfinished tower is occupying
  • When the last piece is attached, the tower will complete one tile away in the direction the builder is facing. Planning ahead is therefore recommended. (10/10/21 Just created a tower, it remained on the tile I was building it on and also standing in).
  • They will shoot based on their line of sight.
  • On PvP servers, it only functions within kingdom influence.
  • On PvP servers, they require no ammo to shoot, but the arrows can not be picked up.
  • On PvP servers, their arrows can be blocked by shields.
