The Watchtower is an Occidental Defense building in the same style as the Gatehouse. It connects to City walls, placing archers along the wall upon being placed. It is significantly weaker than the Harbour defence tower, with only 2 Attack power instead of the Harbour defence tower's 8 Attack power, but has slightly more health and a slightly larger range. The Attack power does not increase with the number of archers it places on the wall. These are purely aesthetical.

After unlocking Noblemen, the Watchtower can be replaced by the more powerful version; The Fortified tower.
