A wise poison master never licks his fingers.

Subtler than an impaling sword, poisoned food and drink has long been a method of choice for the discerning assassin. For those with a flair for the dramatic, poison can be applied to the blade of a weapon to swiftly bring an enemy to defeat in battle.

Along with the ability to poison weapons and food, higher levels of this skill improve the effectiveness of the Poison and Poison Field spells.

Using Poisoning

To use the Poison skill to poison a bladed weapon, food, or drink:
  • Click the blue gem next to the poisoning skill on your skill list
  • Target the poison you wish to use.
  • Once prompted, target the item you wish to poison. (It must be in your backpack or on the ground.)

When poisoning items or food you will get a 'You have lost some Karma' message, unless you are already very low on the Karma scale of course. Furthermore there are a two different messages that you may receive while poisoning these items:

1. "You fail to apply the poison to the object."
2. "You apply the poison to the object."

Message 1 is the message the poisoner receives if he fails. The poison potion may be lost in the process. The higher the poisoning skill the more chance the poison potion will not be lost however. Also if the poisoner fails to apply the poison he may poison himself instead.It is advisable to always have some cure potions at hand to cure yourself if needed.

Messages 2 is the success message. The success message indicates that you've applied a dose of poison to the object that will behave according to the poison type of the poison that you used.

Only weapon types those that have Infectious Strike as an available special move will be able to be poisoned. The weapon will only poison its victim if Infectious Strike is used. See the Special Moves page for more details. Note that bows with Serpent Arrow special move don't have to be poisoned.
