Stick Wars Wiki

Poison is a game mechanic in Stick War II: Order Empire, Stick Empires, and Stick War: Legacy. Usually inflicted through ranged attacks, a unit with Poison will slowly lose health every few seconds, gradually making the unit weaker and weaker until it is killed. In the midst of battle or with low health beforehand, that unit could certainly perish if it is not treated immediately. Poison is very similar to another status infliction, Burn. Poison is also one of the most annoying effects.
