The Fire Tower is quite similar in its function and abilities to the Gargoyle Trap.These pyramid shaped devices shoot fireballs from their turrets. However, one can avoid being burned by moving as soon as the turret points to their direction. Fire Towers possess immense amounts of durability. Life or Mana cannot be stolen from them, and they do not drop any items upon their destruction.
Originally created by wary caravan traders to act as unmanned sentries, these devices soon found favor amongst anyone who was interested in safeguarding their domicile. Although they were designed to emit fireballs whenever a magical field was crossed, these fields do not seem to activate when crossed by demons. Unfortunately, this makes a Fire Tower totally ineffective as a defensive measure against the minions of Hell.
On Hell difficulty, Fire Towers are immune to Poison.
