The Ethereal Spike Trap ("Thunder Spike Trap" in DD Awakened) is a Huntress/Ranger defense. It skewers the single enemy closest to the trap's center for high Lightning damage. This trap can 1-shot ogres on Easy/Medium difficulty.
When positioned close together, multiple of these traps will detonate in one trigger. Large enemies such as ogres can therefore be hit multiple times by a single trigger for massive damage, assuming the target is in range of each individual trap.
- Upgrading a hero defense increases its damage by 10% each level, and its health, lifespan or detonation count by 20% (a level 5 defense will deal 50% more damage and have 100% more health than a defense with no upgrades).
- On the other hand, upgrading a hero defense will mean that it acts as if the Hero has a higher Defense Area of Effect and Defense Attack Rate. A level 1 turret gets a bonus of +2 to all stats, while a level 5 turret gets +36.
- While the hero who summoned the tower is active, its damage is increased by 33% (PC).
