Tower Name Ideas Needed

Level 4
Apr 16, 2008
For the Advanced Elemental Towers, they all have various skills and such, but I haven't been able to come up with some creative or good names for them and their upgrades. So as a result, I have stuff like:

Meteor Tower
Meteor Tower 2
Meteor Tower 3

With the 2 and 3 representing Meteor Tower's upgrades.

I will describe below each of the towers that are currently assigned to the various elemental branches, and if people have some good ideas for names, please post them here! In most cases, I don't mind the level 1 name for the tower, but what I'm looking for more are names for their upgrades (rather than just having 2 and 3 as suffixes).

Advanced Earth Towers

Fissure Tower - Creates a fissure every few seconds in a random direction, blocking the path of ground enemies and builder alike.

Boulder Tower - Attacks with giant rocks, with a chance to launch a rolling boulder that will knockback ground creeps in a line.

Lurker Tower - Shoots out a line of subterranian spikes that damage ground units.

Artillery - Fires a powerful shell at a random location within the area, dealing heavy splash damage and knockbacking any enemies that are caught in the blast. Cannot be controlled.

Tree of Life - The tree drains HP from all enemies within range. Everytime a total of X amount of HP has been drained, a small faerie is created that hovers around the tree. If the builder is damage and comes within range of the faerie, it will rush and sacrifice itself to heal the builder for a certain amount of HP.

Advanced Fire Towers

Meteor Tower - Summons meteors to come down and damage creeps with splash damage.

Scorching Wall Tower - Creates a firewall that damages any unit that walks through it.

Shrapnade Tower - Launches grenades that split into shrapnel pieces that are grenades themselves, dealing damage wherever they land.

Fireblast Tower - Launches a fireball that knocksback creeps caught by it.

Incinerator Tower - Rapidly fires buring arrows at enemies, causing them to heat up and eventually explode, dealing damage to all units nearby.

Advanced Air Towers

Vacuum Tower - This tower sucks up all units within range and pulls them in towards the tower.

Generator Tower - Allows creation of a Link Tower, after which a link is established between the Generator and the Link Towers. This link is high intensity electricity, which damages all units that pass through it.

Splitting Lightning Tower - Fires lightning at an enemy that then splits and hits all other enemies within range.

Beamos Tower - Fires a powerful beam along the ground that damages all ground units caught within it.

Energy Blade Tower - This tower can create a giant spinning blade of pure energy, damaging all units caught within the blades.

Advanced Water Towers

Chilling Wind Tower - Fires a chain frost that can bounce between enemies and even your builder. If it hits enemies, they are slowed, and if it hits your builder, frost armor is cast on him.

Glacial Storm Tower - Summons ice to fall down on units around the tower.

Fountain of Destruction - This fountain spews out water in a circle around it, damaging all units that come in the way.

Frostbite Tower - Slows all units within range, depending on how many units are within range. The more units, the less each unit is slowed.

Geyser Tower - Creates a geyser on the ground that causes water to blast up, damaging any unit caught in the blast.

Currently we only have 5 towers per element, hoping to have more in the future. I'm considering moving Artillery to a different tech tree if I can get another nice earth spell.

Thanks for any help with names! :)

I hope you don't mind if I don't give the explanations with the names because I don't have them. Just some names.

For fire towers:
>>Big Blaster
>>Sparker of Apocalypse
>>Nova exploder

Also if you don't get enough ideas & have time you can browse through idea factory. It can help.
