Wit beyond measure!
The Arcanist Dais is the level 2 Mage Tower in Kingdom Rush: Origins. It replaces the Adept Tower from the previous games.


"Arcanist mages cast highly concentrated magic bolts with a longer spell reach."

The tower consists of an old arcane mage, seemingly a woman, at the center of the top of a floating rock that shoots purple bolts. Her bolts more than 2 times stronger than the Mystic Dais mage.



  • Flying enemies like Gloomy is very easy to defeat using Arcanist Dais.
  • Helps ignores armor, making other towers kill them easily thanks to mages.
  • Again, same as its previous level, will target at two enemies, but the damage is halved from separation.
