Is there a guide to towers? I would love to know the answers to the following questions...

1) How much damage mitigation does a tower have?
2) Does a tower have an actual armor value that can be reduced?
3) Is it affected by Aura items like Starks, or just single target items like Last Whisper?
4) What kind of damage does a tower do?
5) What is the vision radius of a Tower?
6) Why do towers randomly change from being able to see invisible units to not being able to see invisible units from one patch to the next?

Nope but ill answer your questions.

Towers have armor and Magic Resist just like champions. Click the tower and check its mitigation by mousing over its mitigation stats. Same as you would a champion.

Yes but only by FLAT penetration.

Neither Starks (armor REDUCTION) or Last Whisper (% Penetration) work against towers. Only flat penetration works. Runes, Brutalizer, ghostblade and some flat penetration skills.

Physical.

5) What is the vision radius of a Tower?


50 more then its shooting Range. So, 800.

I have never noticed this. Towers have ALWAYS been able to see invis units dating back to closed beta when I started.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions! That absolutely helps, though I've got two more questions that I forgot to ask earlier.

7) Does Bloodrazor proc against a Tower?
8) Can a Tower be critically hit?
