Magikill (mAH-jEYE-kiL), known as Mages in the Armory, are spellcasters of the Order that appeared during

the later events of Stick War, before later reappearing in the series for it's following media. Near the end of the war, the Magikill tended to replace the Swordwrath with their summoning ability, creating minions that were near as powerful as their rivals without any Gold or Population costs.

Due to their appearance later in the game, the units never received much attention. Only three stages later Giants were introduced, defeating the novelty of having an expensive unit. However, due to their drastically different play-styles, experienced Players still found use in their summoning and spellcasting abilities.

While their most notable inclusion was in that of the Order Empire, the Magikill was originally devised by the Magikill Empire. After multiple failed attempts at redemption, the Magikill Empire fell and left the Order with their unit.

They are followers and believers of "Magikill", the Way of the Mage.

Stick War ll :Order Empire/Stick Empires

Blast causes Burn and has very High damage but with short range, it no longer causes stun.

More info on minions here.

Poison spray

Electric Wall

Strategies

Uses (Stick War/ Stick War: Legacy)

  • Magikill's Blast would cause stun, which is useful in countering Swordwrath/Spearton
  • The main use of the Magikill is its minion summoning ability. The minion summoning ability can often hold an enemy army while your real army is building, you can then ambush them.
  • The minions strength is in its numbers, so be sure to invest some points in the Magikill hat is you are going to rely on them as a army force.
  • Because minions cost population in Stick War, it is best to only begin building Magikill when you are almost at the population cap. Minions can be summoned even if you are at maximum population, so this can swell your army above 20 units. This is no longer the case in Stick War: Legacy, where minions have 0 population cost.
  • Magikill are best used in groups. The more of them you have, the more quickly you can build up a minion army and replace slain minions.
  • As Magikill tend to get dangerously close to the action and move slowly, manually controlling them and pulling them back can be useful to protect your investment. As a bonus, user-controlled Magikill in Stick War: Legacy can deal huge damage with their Blast spell.

Countering (Stick War/ Stick War: Legacy)

  • Magikill often excel at close combat, so it is recommended to counter them with Archidons.
  • The Magikill has a straight line range, so by controlling a Swordwrath and going to the extreme bottom of the field would fool the Magikill into stunning in empty space
  • Magikill minions are very weak and can be one-shotted by a maxed-out, user controlled Swordwrath (It shares this disadvantage with the Swordwrath).

Uses (Stick War II: Order Empire/ Stick Empires)

  • The Magikill can be used offensively and defensively.
  • They can drive archers away with Poison Spray.
  • They can devastate armored units with a combination of Poison Spray and Electric Wall.
  • using a Magikill with a simple "Spearcher" (combo of Speartons and Archidons) can turn the tide of battle.

Countering (Stick War II: Order Empire/ Stick Empires)

  • The Magikill can be targeted by Shadowrath or Medusa.
  • V can simply possess your Magikill.
  • When trying to face an electric wall, try to get the Enemy to cast their spell then run and wait until the wall dissipates before re-engaging as the Spell has a long cooldown time and they have wasted their spell.

Etiology

Notes

  • In the Stick Empires Game Guide, Magikill are described as "Leader of Order, powerful mage able to cast explosions, poison, and electric walls."
  • Magikill Minions have the same headpiece in Stick War: Legacy as the Final Boss.
  • A Magikill is seen in a cutscene in the Stick War: Legacy stage, Endless Deads, where it died while it was attacked by zombies.
    • While playing the game, the player can see the Magikill's corpse in the first wave, while in the second wave, his body decomposes. The third and all waves after that will have a grave of the said Magikill, with his staff and hat on it.
  • The name is a portmanteau of magic kills.
  • Magikill used to cost 500 Mana, until they were buffed by reducing their cost to 400 Mana.
  • Poison Spray used to be cast at whatever range the player said. This was changed so it was always cast at max range, making it easier for new players.
  • If multiple Magikill are selected and are told to use a spell, only the closest Magikill will actually cast a spell.
  • Thus, if you select multiple Magikill and you want most/all of them to use a spell, you must click rapidly whilst moving your cursor up and down around the target.
  • In Patch 1.89, Poison Spray was nerfed to do less damage, because it was the most effective way to poison, with the other being Deads. Blast also had its damage reduced, but gained the ability to burn.
