Creating the best build in Towerlands is not an easy task, because you have a ton of units to choose from and only a very limited number of slots that you can use. Combine that with limited resources as well and you know that you have to be really picky when choosing your options.
Today we’re here to help you make those perfect choices: we’ll share with you the best Towerlands units to add to your tower, and basically the best Towerlands build – so that you can easily beat all waves.
We have already shared some basics about this (and much more) in our Towerlands guide, so make sure to check it out as well for additional advice. But now, let’s focus on today’s important topic!
Towerlands: Best Units
I am generally calling these “units” but we’re actually talking about all the things that you can use to make your in-game tower better: the units themselves, but also the Modules and Turrets that you can use to upgrade your tower.
Before deciding which are the best units to use on your tower, we have to discuss another important thing:
How to unlock all units in Towerlands
The main way to do this is by leveling up and going through the campaign battles. You will also unlock special units by defeating specific targets on the map.
One extremely important thing to note is that you will be able to unlock some units early by spending diamonds. I really recommend not to do this if you are a free to play player, since you will be allowed to unlock them with regular coins later on in the game.
There is no need to purchase all units and even less so to upgrade them all. Focus on the ones that you want to use the most, having in mind that some units are useless for the long term, while most of the ones that you will unlock later on in the game will replace the early units.
Towerlands: Unique Units
From the game shop you can buy up to 5 unique units. You can see them below:
These are extremely powerful units which can’t be obtained for free. Therefore, I will not include them on my list of the best units in Towerlands, but if you want to buy them, they will indeed offer you a massive advantage.
Based on the details that I can check, I would say that the Pharaoh is extremely useful, followed by one of the two summoners (but since we don’t have details about the actual units they summon, it’s difficult to say).
Which are the best units in Towerlands?
I would divide the units available in three categories: mages, archers and unit spawners. While they can all prove to be useful in combat, I would rank them like this: mages as the strongest, unit spawners second and archers third.
The other types of units – like the looter or the worker and eventually the Veteran are useless. Focus on having units that deal damage and take out the enemy.
Your stage in the game also matters when deciding which are the best units to use. The starting Archer will be good throughout the game, while the Veteran will be good to have early on as it helps you level up much faster.
But once you reach level 30 and get Zeus, I would say that things start to shape up and you can focus on the main heroes to use in battle. These are:
– Earth Mage
– Fire Mage
– Ice Mage
– Old Paladin
In my opinion, the Earth Mage + Ice Mage is one of the most powerful combos in the game: stunning enemies and slowing them down is exactly what you need to keep your enemies away from the tower and safely take them out.
When it comes to modules, you want things that deal damage, ideally to all types of enemies: you don’t want to focus on defeating ground enemies and let a few flying units destroy your tower because you don’t have any defence against it!
For the central spot, I would say that I really like the starting Ballista as it does solid damage and is useful for a long while. Later on, the Magic Sphere becomes useful as it deals area damage.
For the bottom spot, I like the Hammer as it does solid damage to enemies that reach the tower, but also pushes them back and stuns them. Really useful!
Mixing them together is actually the key to victory, but we’re going to talk about this and more tower build options below.
Towerlands: Best Build
Based on your level, you will have more or fewer slots available inside your tower and your build will be influenced by that mostly.
Before going into more depth, I am sharing below three different builds for three different in-game stages, from a pretty basic one (around level 30), to a more advanced build (level 60) and an end game one (level 120).
Early game Towerlands Build:
Mid game Towerlands Build:
Late game Towerlands Build:
In my opinion, it is key for you to find the right balance between the types of troops you bring into your tower: you can’t go full spec with just mages or just summoners, you need a bit of each.
Mages are the most important though – Earth, Fire and Ice Mages are the obvious choice here, followed by the Commander and Old Paladin. But it all depends on the stage that you’re in and how many unit slots you have unlocked.
If you have other builds to recommend – or if you think that other units should be listed here as “best units” in the game, don’t hesitate to let us know by commenting below.
