Overlord Wiki

Dark Tower Objects are objects that you acquire from different places in The World and are seen in the Dark Tower's Throne Room in Overlord.

The Spell Stones are also to be found there, but only the first eight for some reason.

The Overlord: Raising Hell-only moulds are to be found in the Forge.


Pillars grant you an extra boost in Health/Mana, or a Minion Horde size increase. Additionally Spell Stones will make new Spells available to the Overlord. For the most part these 18 pillars plus the up to 12 spell stones can be acquired in any order.
