Billboards are a panel of information visible above the spawn points of a map during a build phase. Basic information is visible by default and a more detailed view can be seen when a player holds the 'SHIFT' button (by default).

The number of Physical Resist and Magic Resist Lanes per map is constant (Ie: Gates of Dragonfall will always have 2 Magic Resist lanes and 1 Physical Resist Lane), but their placement is randomly generated every time the map is started.

The number of each Threat Color a wave has is constant for each map on each difficulty, but is random in their placement each wave.

Basic View

File:Basic green billboard.png

The Basic View of the Billboard appears over each spawn point during the Build Phase of each wave. On the Basic View a player can see the name of the lane, the type of resistance the lane will focus on, the number of enemies spawning from the spawn point, and a color to show the relative intensity of the spawn point.

Threat Colors

The color that appears under the name of the lane shows a relative intensity of Enemies that will spawn in that lane for the wave. The color of a lane can change every wave. There are 6 different colors:

Detailed View

The Detailed View of the Billboard can be seen when a player holds the "SHIFT" key (by default). The detailed view extends the Basic View downwards and shows specific information about what enemies will spawn.
