[edit] Lair

Image:beast_building_lair.jpg General: The main building for the Beast side. Protect it or the game is lost. You can see its hp in the top-right corner. It is a spawn point. It also serves as a drop off point for resources. If it is under attack you get warning signals.

Enables:The production of workers (50 redstone each), Spires (250 redstone 1500 gold), Sub Lairs (1000 redstone 1000 gold) and nexuses (500 redstone).

Researches:It has the very important Lair upgrades, which are needed to have access to the next tier. Lair level 2 upgrade (for Tier 2, 750 redstone) and Lair level 3 upgrade (for Tier 3, 1500 redstone). It allows researching of the Tier 2 main unit (Stalker, 600 redstone) and the the Tier 3 main unit (Predator, 1200 redstone) when they're upgraded to their respective Tiers

When destroyed: Your team loses.

[edit] Sub lair

Image:beast_building_sublair.jpg General: You can spawn here. Is also a drop off point for resources. Important building for advancing and securing more resources. Gives warning signals when under attack. Costs 1000 redstone and 1000 gold. Most commanders do not spend their last 1000 redstone so they still build a sub lair. For example when someone sneaks past the enemy outer defenses, you can make a sub and siege their base from it. Or when the team has conquered a redstone mine, their commander builds a Sub Lair next to it and then the team can then "powermine" so the team has more redstone for researching and building things. Most good commanders like to take all the redstone on the map so that in case of a turn of the battle, in the case the enemy suddenly reclaims some terrain, the enemy still cant rebuild anything cause there simply is no redstone anymore. If your team has all the redstone then they will sooner or later run outt of it. Redstone is vital to success.

Enables: Spawning.

Researches: Worker. (50 redstone)

when destroyed: You cant spawn there anymore.

[edit] Sanctuary

Image:beast_building_sanctuary.jpg General: Healers. Usually only build if there is plenty redstone. Is not required for team victory. Can make it harder to win, if too many ppl spawn as shaman. If used well, it helps.

when destroyed: Nothing is disabled, but if base defenses are gone, the base usually quickly follows. Keep the healing spires alive. Note that spires are destroyed easily by enemy siege units such as ballista's, so coms generally dont place much of them.

[edit] Gateway

Image:portal.jpg General: The Beast Commander can open two portals through which his team can travel. The portals remain open until destroyed. This power requires 300 entropy energy from the Entropy Shrine power pool.
