Overview[]

This is an ability applied on contact with an enemy. Meaning that when an entity from a poisonous unit hits a single enemy from a unit, they receive this debuff. This makes poisonous units useful for the front line as they can poison what they are fighting against and may also affect enemies they are next to if the fighting is close and intermingled with other enemy units.
