Hi!

Can't understand what benefit player get from astral watchtower?

The text is "Place an Atlantean on this cart. At the start of the next Production phase, you may place that Atlantean on any tile".

But players already can place their Atlanteans on any tile.

If it's for saving Atlantean from misfortune, than better to place him on the center of the Atlantis.

Why to place an Atlantean on this cart while you can place him somewhere useful right now?

Thank you very much for answers and for your time!

You normally place Atlanteans during the Placement phase; then the Misfortune phase occurs, followed by the Production phase. The Watchtower allows you to place one of your Atlanteans at the start of the Production phase, after misfortunes have already occurred (so that Atlantean can be placed risk-free, after you know which tiles have flooded).

Does that make sense?
