BladesingerHall.png Honor to serve!


The Bladesinger Hall is an advanced Melee Tower that appears in Kingdom Rush: Origins. It is first made available in the level Royal Gardens. They regenerate 25 hit points per second when idle.

Description[edit | edit source]

"Warrior monks that take combat as an art form where perfection is just the beginning."

By combining good defense, good damage, and agility, you get the Bladesingers. Their combat method makes for impressive and highly lethal attacks, allowing them to quickly vanquish scores of lesser and elite enemies.

Edge Mastery nearly doubles their DPS and Perfect Parry allows them to hold out longer against constant assault. Lastly there is Blade Dance, surely one of the best special unit attacks when facing armored enemy groups due to its rapid attacks and true damage.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Bladesinger Hall does not have any ranged attacks, unlike its previous levels, the Warden Barrack and the Ranger Barrack. As a result, the player has to make sure they have towers capable of attacking flying or ranged enemies to provide cover for the Bladesingers.
  • While Perfect Parry allows the Bladesingers to soak up damage while it is active, the Bladesingers are still not exceptionally durable. Thus, it is recommended to avoid overwhelming them with too many strong enemies, and support them with towers, as well as Forest Keepers to heal the Bladesingers while they fight.
  • If the Bladesingers are going to face waves of small foes, it is advised to upgrade Blade Dance first, as it allows the Bladesingers to kill off lesser foes before they reach melee range, to thin out the horde pressuring the player's choke points. Bladesingers do not perform Blade Dance when facing a single enemy. If especially low on G and facing weak enemies flowing in constantly, Perfect Parry may also suffice, as each Bladesinger will be inflicting AOE damage in a small nearby radius.
  • With Blade Dance, 3 Bladesingers can deal 120-210 / 315-423 / 480-672 True Damage.

  • "A Song of Death"
    • A musical composition, usually an existing pop culture song, used throughout each film of the Final Destination series to foreshadow Death.

    • Likely a reference to the catchphrase of Jetstream Sam from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. This is supported by the fact that the character was known for his excellent swordsmanship and extremely aggressive nature in combat.
