Oil Platform (WC2 Human)
- For lore about oil platforms, see Oil platform.
|Build time||200 seconds|
The Oil Platform needs to be built on oil patches in order for oil to be harvested and refined. Alliance tankers are used to build these Oil Platforms as well as ferry the oil back to a Shipyard or Oil Refinery where it can be processed and put to use.
The vast amounts of oil beneath the sea must be used for the construction of ships and various war machines. Because the oceans are rich with this substance, Tankers need to construct platforms where the oil is thick. Only then can the Tankers collect their dark cargo. As the Horde drew near Lordaeron and the seas became increasingly treacherous, the Platforms built by Human drillers before the Great War were destroyed.
