Overview

"Overdrive!"

Beacon is a Support tower that boosts the Firerate and Range of Towers within it's range, but does not attack at all, like the Farm tower. It can give Hidden Detection to Towers at Level 3, and boosts Firerate of all nearby Towers at Level 4 by 50% for 15 seconds. At max Level, beacon boosts the Firerate of all Towers by 50% and increases range by 50%. The Firerate boost caps at 65%. It belongs to the Amethyst Tribe.

"A helpful beacon built by the Amethysts. It does not deal any damage, but buffs towers in its radius. Its pretty lights make it a nice sight to see for the Amethysts, same with Rubies, but they don't want to admit it."
