How to Get Tower Upgrades in Necrosmith

Tower Upgrades are obtained in Necrosmith by destroying lairs that spawn enemy units. Lairs are located all over the map and spawn increasingly difficult units in areas further from the Black Tower. Players can get better Tower Upgrades, also called Blueprints, by spending Gold on upgrading the Blueprints at the main menu.

Every time you create a tower upgrade in-game, your Black Tower gets stronger, and its HP increases. Upgrades cost Ore, which can be picked up around the map in the wheelbarrows or generated daily by claiming Ore Mines.
