    title kinda says it all. Anyone know how much parasitic leeches? Seems the darkglow was made for poison archers. Stratics says the base poison is as strong as Deadly, but how to the special effects fare? cant find any detailed info.

    When wearing poison skill, I can be awarded, oh, was it 40-50 healing? It was very much. When not wearing poison skill, not so much; maybe 20ish or so. It is very nice to use, but expensive to obtain.
    I found it more useful for pvm actually, when training fencing and ninja skills. Players seldom stand close enough to you to allow for the healing.

    That is very true. However, I believe that the miner plays a thief, and may be using poison to assist him in his thieving.
    In that case, the poison question does indeed relate to thieving, and so has merit.
    I would believe that any question, whether about fencing, stealthing, hiding, even magery, as it pertains to making a player a better thief, would then indeed be about thieving.

    I believe the gm poisoner retains the "rogue" title

    *shrugs* as stratics got rid of the assassin forum and moved their FAQs here, it appears this person is part of the minority that can work out the appropriate board to ask questions on

    Through my experience...Parasitic was given an accurate assesment in the second post.

    As a thief you mite be best with Darkglow for the simple fact, it is designed to be used from a distance and unless im mistaken you want to use this to heal on the run???

    If so once you hit, i think its 5tiles, you will be gettin the benefit of the leech (thus healing on the run), also not sure if you can but have you tried applying darkglow to shurikens?
