Rogue Tower: Patch 1.0.5 Improves Tesla and Flame Thrower; Adds Quality of Life Changes

Rogue Tower Steam

Rogue Tower is a tower defense game with rogue-lite elements. What makes this game unique is that height matters when dispatching enemies quickly. That’s because your towers gain a damage bonus based on their elevation. You can also buff them up using cards, which can give them better damage, longer range, or new abilities.

The game received Patch 1.0.5 not too long ago, improving some towers including the Tesla Tower and the Flame Thrower. It adds some quality of life changes as well.

Tower Adjustments

The Tesla Tower is quite effective against enemies with huge amounts of Shield, though it is mediocre against the rest. This is likely the reason why the developers are cranking up its base damage to 10, its Health damage to six, and Armor damage to three. However, it did receive some slight nerfs. For instance, its RPM has decreased to 30, and mana consumption has increased to 50% of its base damage.

Meanwhile, the Flame Thrower is already a good all-rounder but it still received some buffs. Its base damage is increased to five, Health damage to six, and Armor damage to nine. Just like the Tesla Tower, the Flame Thrower has its RPM reduced as well.
