Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card gives Rogue decks that run weapons a way to heal themselves, something the class lacks. Even if you end up using the weapon to trade with enemy minions, the Lifesteal helps make up for the health loss. This card gives more returns on weapons with higher attack.

On most weapons, Leeching Poison is too insubstantial on most weapons to heal effectively. The one exception where Leeching Poison's healing can be significant is on a marginally buffed Kingsbane, which can reach large amounts of Attack reasonably.

If comboed with Doomerang, the hero can get healed a lot more.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Leeching Poison is an Assassination Rogue talent that coats the user's weapon in poison, granting them Leech for its duration.
