Drain, or drain strength, is one of the ability effects in Stormbound: Kingdom Wars.
It is currently exclusive to the toads and ravens of the Tribes of Shadowfen.
Draining strength from a unit deals damage to it and gives equivalent strength to the draining unit. This damage works identically to all other forms of damage and will trigger elder abilities.
Dealing overkill damage with drain will not give more strength than the drained unit already had.
Visually, drain is represented with a red and green link from the drained unit to the draining unit. There is no representation of drain in card art.
Drain gives you double value by dealing damage to enemy units while giving strength to your own units. You can also drain friendly units when necessary.
- Target high-strength enemies with high-strength drains and low-strength enemies with low-strength drains.
- Redistribute your units' strength using drain.
- Deal damage to enemies while also making your own units more durable.
There are no quests that reference drain currently.
