Petrify is an assassination spell for Medusa which does not require researching.

Petrify Icon


Petrified Miner

A poor Miner has been Petrified by Medusa cruelly. All units (except Giants) have a special statue form of death by petrify.

Players can select a unit they want to turn into stone, via a targeting selection within a range and Medusa casts a vision of her face upon them, killing them where they stand (Giants and Enslaved Giants are exempt from the instant kill, as are most tier 2 elemental units, however, they lose a huge amount of health). The ability can take out an expensive unit in seconds, making Petrify a great asset to Medusa. Normally petrify is used to prevent the opponent approaching with speartons (keep in mind Petrify does not auto kill a spearton in shield mode) or to remove Magikill and Merics.

  • Only Medusa could hold the power of Petrify, a merciless (and default) ability of hers. In Stick War 2 - Order Empire, she uses this spell to kill many of Order's helpless units.
  • By gazing into the eyes of a terrified enemy unit, Medusa can turn the stick figure into a motionless statue just by her hideous face (inspired by the Greek Myth).
  • Speartons in Shield Wall will not die instantly from Petrify. However, if they are killed by some other cause afterwards, they still turn to stone as if they died from being petrified.
