The Cloud Piercer is one of the three essential structures for the Foehn that grants access to more advanced technologies. It also allows the deployment of Spinblades to boost the speed of certain Foehn units.
The Cloud Piercers are where the Foehn's prime and innovative wind manipulation technologies are being developed. The Revolt's staff within these towers monitor the behavior of winds nearby and perform complicated calculations which allow their army to make the best use of its flow and employ the forces of nature in battle. The Piercer's data makes it possible to assess the best locations for the deployment of Spinblades, which will boost the speeds of units equipped with windspin engines.
Besides playing as one of three prerequisites before unlocking Tier 3, the Cloud Piercer provides the following support power:
|A Spinblade can be deployed in strategic areas across the battlefield, to significantly increase the speed of Foehn units with windspin engines, like the Minermite. Deploying a Spinblade costs $500 and takes 4:00 to recharge.|
The Cloud Piercer is also a notable target for infiltrators to acquire Stolen Tech units that are able to match the might of even the most advanced of Foehn units. Therefore, a Foehn commander should always place walls around the Cloud Piercer to prevent such situations.
