The tower's fortifications consist of Level 3 walls, a gate and 5 mounted crossbows on the walls. Defenders can number up to 20+ Dust Bandits and a handful of Dust Bosses, presumably lieutenants of the King. Unique Recruit Cat is imprisoned on the third floor of the tower, on the prison level.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The best way to unlock the front gate is from the side of the staircase, rather than going directly in front of the gate itself. From this position, you're less likely to be seen (you're behind the main wall, not the transparent gate), and are less open to crossbow fire from the turrets. You can even open the gate from here without drawing any alarm, allowing your entire group to enter the base without resistance.
  • Upon entering the gate, you will most likely be swarmed. With low level characters, you will no doubt be wiped, and once downed the Dust Bandits will pick you up and imprison you inside of cages on the third floor. The Dust King will either be outside, and can easily be lured to a safer place away from the tower, or he will be inside and will be one of the last bandits to come after you. In the case of the former, you can get him to chase you far away from the aggro range of the others. Otherwise, you will have to fight through the rest of the bandits, which can easily result in a wipe and party deaths.
  • It is possible to claim the Dust King's bounty very early in the game if one hires a team or two of Mercenaries to storm the tower for them. Simply unlock and open the gate and enter with your hired blades, and wait for him to go down to collect the bounty. The disadvantages of this are that a single character is unlikely to be able to collect all of the loot from the tower, and missing out on the experience from both Dust Bandit raids, and the fight itself.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If you become allied to the Dust Bandits faction through either FCS or the slavery trick, you can enter and use the camp beds inside of the tower, as well as man the Mounted Crossbows on the wall. Despite the fact that the bandits inside will say you're trespassing, they will never become hostile or raise an alarm, and you're free to remain inside as long as you want.
