    So I decided to train up my deathwatch beetles on one of my quirky deathwatch beetle tamers and I noticed something. The beetles will occasionally poison their foes, but they don't display a poisoning score. Any particular reason for this?

    It's not their auto attack that applies Poison, but a special "Poison Spit" ability of theirs. Like how Bane Dragons don't have any Poisoning skill, yet can still DP their foes when hit in melee, or breathe a Poison Breath that can DP when hit at range.

    Yeah, I noticed that when I finished up their training and took them out fighting. I'm still trying to figure out if their crushing blow ability actually does any additional damage.
