I am currently working poisoning up to 80 for the chance for lethal poisoning. Is it worth the time for a PvP character and is there any benefit of working it to GM?

Higher chance of raising the poison level and it's a skill to think about depending on your game and pvp style.

I really do not have much of a style since i am new to PvP...right now my style is dying and feeding the coffers of other people w/ my insurance money...lol... Just thought it went hand in hand. Also, does poisoning skill effect dark glow or parasitic poison?

those poisons are equal to dp, so they will work at that level. I am in the process also of working up poisoning, it has gone slow and is very pricey. Luckily all I've had to buy was the nightshade, and a buddy made the kegs. I had tons of kegs to use. I would reccomend only doing 80 poisoning if youre gonna have 120 weapon skill, or 120 magery, other than that you will want to raise it higher.

Thx for the info. How does poisoning effect a mage or a necro when they poison someone?

It also bumps effectiveness of the Poison spell.

Does damage depending on the formula ((Magery + Poisoning) / 2):
Less than 65.1 : Level 1 poison
65.1 to 85 : Level 2 poison
85.1 to 99.9 : Level 3 poison
100 and higher : Level 4 poisoning


Id assume this holds true for the Poison Strike necro spell too, but I didnt see anyhting factual on that...

THX for the info. Aprreciate it. Is is even good in PvP anymore. I talk to some they say no and some say yes. It seems really split although theyhate the fact that mages seem to cure being poioned easily as well as a GM healer or above.

"Arch-Cure" will always cure poison regardless of its level. I forgot what publish brought that change around.

Well, to me poisoning is just another way to interrupt someone from healing themselves. If you do get it strong enough to do lvl 4, which would mean you have to have 80 poison then either 120 mage/weapon skill, cause the total skill points invovled has to be 200+ in order to achieve that level of poisoning, then it is worth getting. You hit someone enough with poison, it does get effective.

Yep, interrupting is important when you are fighting someone who may end up OoOOoooOOing you..Now harm spamming in a duel is crap, but on the field, interrupting is key. Poisoning, bleeding, mortaling, Holy Lighting/Withering. Those are things you want to be able to do.

any way to keep opponent from healing is key...poison is simply one of those ways...
also there are some nice weapons that have infect and disarm (butcher knife!( and disarm is also key vs evade gimps.

it also helps when you can disarm a 4/6 chiv and screw up their timing...that will make em change their tactics up a bit

K guys thx. So, if I have 120 w/ wep and 80 poison I wil lethal poison every time I assume. Also wondering, someguys use a low level poisoning so they have more hits since they are doing just what you said using it to interrupt heals. Does anyone else do this? I think I should hit w/ the high level even if it does only a little more damage since that could mean the difference in lfe or death.

yah, some may use a lower level poison to get more uses on a weapon. Like my swdsman doesnt use DP on his cleavers or kryss's cause he doesnt have poisoining, but its on there for the special to be able to be used. My nox/macer will be using DP cause of the 200 total points, and for serious disruption.

at 120 weap/80 poison you should (according to stratics) do level 5 (lethal) 4 times out of time...or 80%.
its not quite every time, but i have 120/80 on my guy and its plenty effective.
maybee at gm it would be every time, dont know...but I do fine w/ 80

I worked it pretty agressively for about 2 weeks, but was going through kegs left and right. Then I slowed down to close to 2 or 3 times a day since I only had about 400 points on the char, I was still gaining every few hours
