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.
