    I honestly thought taming was the hardest skill you had to devote time too.

    If any of you have never done poisoning before and were proud of hitting 120 taming, you people have no clue.

    I've used 4 poison alaricitys after I hit 25.1 (basically free skill) and just NOW hit 50.0... And that was done using a well written recent report.

    The offer is way out of wack in your favor (in my opinion) but getting deamon bone is easy for me, it just requires time (and fighting the bordom factor). Blessed Gold Skull gives instant access to Doom Gauntlet.

    I have 5 skulls and am hoping 5 scrolls will get me too 70.

    PM me or im usually in game.

    Thank You

    you sure you're using the correct level of poison? I got mine to 70 pretty quickly when i did it (before i deleted it for more useful skills on my soulstones) just have some way to cure and it's pretty quick, just uses a lot of nightshade. If you've got a good enough stock, 50-70 shouldnt take more than 2-3 hours.

    taming takes forever because you have to do the full taming attempt, after finding a monster to do it on, and you cant use an alac fully with taming :/ (gotta get to the monster, tame attempt, get back to an inn/house, which burns alac time)

    I did 0-25.1 using level one poison and no scroll.
    I burned 4 kegs and 2 scrolls to get me to 40.0 and switched to level 2 poison as the report stated.
    I burned 7 more kegs and 2 more scrolls to get me too 49.8.
    I then burned 50 more pots to get me to 50.0.
    Level 3 poison is started at 65 poisoning, and Level 4 is used at 92.0 or 99.0 depending on your use per gain "view".

    I will take any advice for improvement, but I believe I'm doing this correctly.
    I used 2 weapons (magic game spawned crappy krysses) and switched back and forth depending on a success. (using 1000 weapons was removed via the anti-macro coding).

    Comments?

    30 - 40: Apply Lesser Poison
    40 - 70: Apply Poison
    70 - 92: Apply Greater Poison
    92 - 100: Apply Deadly Poison

    The skill ranges listed above also apply to the level of poison you may apply during the Infectious Strike/Serpent Arrow weapon skills. Using these abilities will also cause you to gain in poisoning. With each attempt to apply poison to a weapon or food item there is a chance for the player to accidentally poison themselves, so having a few Cure potions on-hand is recommended (especially when first moving on to a higher level of poison).

    For a power gaming technique to train this skill see the Satyr Trick.

    When you reach 70 in a melee skill, you have a chance of gaining in poisoning whenever you use the Infectious Strike special move; Tactics is not required. When you reach 90 in Archery and Tactics, you have a chance of gaining in poisoning when you use the Serpent Arrow special move.


    Yes the Satyr Trick does work on siege and i highly recommend it for poisoning. Ive done 4 characters with poisoning following this guide and wasnt that much trouble at all.

    I read the same report, I did the exact same thing. Still waiting on more alaricitys, still at 50.0.

    If your gains slow, move to the next level of poison up, the guide isn't definitive, it's just "ideal" for resource usage.
