'''Towers''' are a type of '''[[:Category:Buildings|building]]''' in '''[[Artifact: The Dota Card Game]]'''. Towers are lane guardians, protecting each [[lanes|lane]] on the game [[boards|board]]. There are a total of 3 towers, defending the three lanes. If there is no card adjacent to a unit and there is no pathing card directs the attack elsewhere, they will attack the Towers. Towers can be interacted with by nearly all types of cards.

This suggests that the same game mechanics from Dota will feature in the game; accordingly, we can assume this building will also be in the card game.
 
==Effect==
 
Towers are lane guardians. Essentially, they protect each lane on the [[Boards|game board]], attracting '''[[Creeps]]''' and waylaying them from progressing. In Dota, these towers can be increased to several tiers - it is unknown whether or not this will carry over to '''Artifact'''.
