Additional Information

Forage to survive on the battlefield.

Tangos are popular in the early game because of their ability to restore a small amount of health at very little cost and with low risk. Despite healing slower than the Healing Salve, it makes up for it in cost-effectiveness and charges. The regeneration from Eating a Tree is also not broken when damage is taken, making this excellent for retreats. It can also be shared with allies, one charge at a time.

Stacks with itself in inventory.

As a target tree is removed on cast, it is useful for providing alternate pathways to escape from or chase an enemy.


  • Successive uses with the same unit do not stack, but refresh the duration instead.
  • Restores health in form of health regeneration, so it heals for 0.071875 health in 0.01 second intervals, which is 7.1875 health per second.
  • The targeted tree is instantly destroyed upon cast.
  • Creates a Tango (Shared) in the targeted ally's inventory.
  • If the targeted ally's inventory is full, the item is dropped on the ground.
  • Can not be cast on Lone Druid's Summon Spirit Bear, but it is possible to directly put a Tango (Shared) in its inventory.
