The surface is dangerous, what if they built tunnels linking the spires? How would such a network be different in scale then construction of the spires themselves.

Literally speaking?  Two miles versus Hundreds or Thousands....  :P

Personally I think there is something more specifically hazardous about the Surface than just the critters, something akin to how being outdoors without Goggles opens you up to ether-born mental damage and blindness.  Otherwise underground bunker systems make more sense (from a structural standpoint) in all categories.

All we have heard is that there are spires and jungles, are there any seas or mountains? Differing ecosystems might allow different approaches.

I think it's likely, but all we know of the surface is near Albion.  Mountains are guaranteed by the nature of a geologic planet*, and Oceans are all but guaranteed barring a non-earth location or a planetary level event that caused ether and Mist and whatnot.


*Before the actual release I had a theory based on nothing that the world would be a Gas Giant planet and the "Spires" would prove to be spikes from a planetary sized crystal that was floating in it's center (picture some of the spiky kryptonian crystals from the Superan movies).  The existence of a Surface disproves this completely, tragically.

I wonder if there might be secret settlements in the safer regions of the surface. They could be very I portant in the future.
