[Spell] Parasite "stacking type" data field

Level 4
May 11, 2020
The parasite ability has a peculiar data field called "stacking type" with 4 different possible values, attack rate, damage, kill unit and movement.
Does anyone know what these mean? ("kill unit" is default for this spell and is responsible for spawning a minion when affected unit dies)
Parasite seems based on the poison ability type, and you will find the same files on abilities such as Envenomed Spears and Slow Poison. They don't work for all abilities that have them, so you'll have to do your own testing.

Attack rate and movement speed is supposed to be slow. (See Slow poison). And should be accompanied by fields that determined by how mush they slow I think.

Damage is supposed to be whether or not it damages units, and "kills" is if it leaves the unit on 1 hp or kills it.
