Tyranny Wiki

Mysterious device is a Spire upgrade in Tyranny.


The ancient device, perched atop the Mountain Spire in Vendrien's Well, is the product of a forgotten age. It is unclear what function it once had, or if it can be used again. Resting in any Spire grants a bonus to all skills.


The orb in the center of the resonator spins with the push of some unseen force. Where the structure once exuded warmth, now it gives off a ferocious heat that singes your face the longer you stare into it. A sound like music swarms in the air around the structure, but it's painful and disharmonious to your ears.

The umbilical between you and the resonator conducts the energy like a white-hot chain. It's feeding you something you hardly understand, and doubt you could contain. The pain is severe, like a ball of hot iron forming in your chest, and you know that it has to be released before it threatens to consume you.
