  • Fire Mage 'summons' a ring of fire around her, killing enemies affected in range. She also gets the Ruby Cripple ability at later levels.
  • Because of Fire Mage's short range, it is recommended to place her on turns, where you can use most of her range.
  • Multiple Level 4 Fire Mages can be really good for mid game, however, you should still work on getting atleast 2 Level 5 Fire Mages before wave 70, as her Ruby Cripple is very useful to slowdown the hordes of enemies that come in that wave giving your towers more time to attack them.
  • This tower has a wiki staff exclusive skin.


  • Fire Mage is the first tower that uses fire as her main defense tactic the second being Pyro.
    • Even though Gunner's Level 3 upgrade name is "Incendiary Ammunition", he uses bullets and guns as its main defense, not fire.
  • Since she has the ability to damage multiple enemies, a Level 2 Fire Mage can attack Ghost Voids indirectly if there is a detectable enemy on her range, however you should not rely on this so much as Ghosts usually come first than other enemies. You should get a Level 3 Fire Mage instead.
