Description[edit]

Requiring a Lair to build, this building contains access to all Flyer units and Upgrades listed below. The Spire is needed for the construction of Zerg aerial units Mutalisk, faster harasser and the Corruptor, for air-to-air.

Once a Hive has finished, the Spire may be further upgraded to a Greater Spire for Broodlord end-game. Flyer Carapace gives all Spire units, which all have a large health bar and cost, will give the most effect right away but Broodlords also need Evolution Chamber's Ground Attack and Carapace upgrades for Broodlings and Ultralisk-tech switches to be more effective.

Contains upgrades for Zerg air units.
Enables Brood Lords from Corruptors.

Important to note is the Spire and Greater Spire's long building time, making this a high level target for enemy drops, it is recommended to have two Spires and protect both from Drops and Run Bys from the enemy army.
