Design Principle – Fortifications

To defend yourself and your friends from the random hordes and other players, you can build fortifications in AEO.  Not only can you build the typical walls players have come to expect in survival elemented games, but you can also build defenses such as automated turrets, many types of traps, and even hire NPC guards to defend your area when you are offline.

You can also expect to gain skill and experience from building defenses.  While many games only reward those on offense, in AEO, you gain rewards from building and maintaining a successful defense as well.
