    I know the changes to poisoning now require you to have the skill on your template to poison with shuriken/fukiya, but can anyone point me to information about bumping to lethal w/o Infectious Strike?
    I've looked and can't find anything one way or the other. I'm guessing since magery can't bump above Deadly that Ninjitsu can't either, but I would love to be wrong about that ^^

    You cannot dose someone with lethal using shurikens or fukiya. The only other method of lethal poison, aside from perhaps tinkering, is serpent arrow... which I think works the same as infectious strike.

    Correct, but having just recently tested Serpent arrow again, I can confirm that the poison strength delivered is quite random. Lethal is certainly possible, but far from guaranteed like Infectious strike is. Technically you could also lethal poison someone using ninjitsu if you combined the shuriken/darts with a Necromancer's Evil Omen spell, but this requires a large amount of set up, and skills obviously.

    Ahh well, it was a long shot. I want it more for deterrence and denial strategy than actually killing anyone anyway ^^
    Thanks for the info!
