A very valuable spell that transforms enemy units into pigs. One of the best spells in the game as a result.


Lore

N/A

Abilities

Oink! Transforms up to 5 / 7 / 10 / 10 enemy units into pigs for 15 seconds. Affected units may neither move nor attack. After 5 seconds they will be retransformed if being attacked. Reusable every 20 seconds.


Oink is a powerful affliction that can render an entire army piggafied. However it has an obvious weakness in that the affected creatures have 10 seconds of the spells duration where receiving any damage re-transforms them.

Tips & Strategies

Curse of Oink can be one of the most powerful spells, not only in natures arsenal, but the entire game. At U-3 it can porkify a whole army!

The first five seconds of this spell are fair-game to attack with impunity. The remaining ten seconds will force a creature out of its pig stasis if they receive damage.

The best way to utilize Curse of Oink is to abuse the first five seconds as much as possible. Then single out targets among the group while leaving the rest still oinked.

AoE or attacks that damage multiple opponents do not go well with Oink, often reactivating an oinked army.

Campaign PvE

Curse of Oink can be a lifesaver on many PvE maps. The instant stasis effect can give you plenty of breathing room and regroup for a counterattack, and can also be used to provide a buffer when attacking.

Random PvE

Oink provides similar benefits in RPvE, where the stasising of an attacking enemy force or enemy camp can sometimes be the difference between success and failure

PvP

Curse of Oink is a staple in PvP for anyone considering a Nature orb. And its not hard to see why.

Strengths

  • Has the capacity to Oink an entire army.

With an upgraded capacity of 10 targets, this spell is extremely effective at shutting down whole armies of units with the push of a button.

  • Offers 5 seconds of free, inconsequential damage.
Any target that is Oinked has 5 seconds where any damage taken does not re-transform them. This effectively gives a brief window to wack your foe with impunity.

Weaknesses

  • Reverts targets that take damage for 10 seconds of the spells duration.
While this may not be entirely a downside, 10 seconds where attacking is discouraged can allow your foe an opportunity to cast spells or call reinforcements without retaliation.
