I am rather new to Ultima Online (played way back in the day) and I have a couple questions regarding Poison Mastery:
1) Is there much benefit to using injecting strike alongside infectious strike? My thinking is I'd use infectious strike to get the lethal level poison active from the bump from the skill, then use infecting strike to apply the poison debuff, is this worth it though?
2) Is it better to just use injecting strike with a weapon that normally can't poison enemies as the poison debuff is long enough, and sufficient enough, that the lack of being able to bump the poison isn't noticeable?
I'm trying to figure out if it's better for me to just combo infectious strike with injecting strike, or am I better off just with injecting strike being combo'd with other weapon abilities normally not possible with the standard infectious weapons?
Thanks for any help anyone can provide on this! One thing I find extremely frustrating about this game is the lack of transparency on the math within the game. It isn't new-player friendly in the least.
