    Poison weps are useless unless you have the poison skill yourself. As everyone is after the lethal poison. Which you cant craft. But im gonna get another stone and put poison on my crafter just to have it complete. And yes stars and darts will sell well.

    People sell shurikens for like... 350gp each if DPed....


    I guarantee if you stocked 100 stars a day @ 500gp per, they'd sell out every day.

    Aye...what he said!

    I would suggest putting the poison skill on your alt character, if you have one, the PvM / PvP char, not the crafter for the reasons above. Crafter makes them, then your fighter poisons them and can also benefit from using them.

    Since there are no timers on soul stones anymore, you can easily swap the skill back onto stones once you make a bag full of stars and darts, if you're not currently running the skill as a part of your offense.

    If you don't have a second account... shame on you! This is Siege! :p

    Yes, many still use the Poisoning skill.
    If crafter only, you just poison the weapon for sale.
    If PvM, you must know your monsters. Some are easy to poison others
    just ignore it.
    If PvP, well it helps to know how quickly the victum is going to recover.
    I am sure you can make use of the Poisoning skill.

    If you don't have a second account... shame on you! This is Siege! :p

    Nothing wrong with Soulstone use on Siege Perilous... many have dozens
    of full and fragmented Soulstones carrying their skills points.
    I do not use a second account... I do not want to confuse players with second
    character. So, I have accepted the shame.

    People sell shurikens for like... 350gp each if DPed....

    How much Ninjitsu skill helps this extra attack...I place it highly useful...
    remember you can not do everything with one character. But, Poisoning on
    the character helps the attack by shurikens... also, helps Poisoning by spell.
    Many, do shuriken attack plus poisoned arrow special attack followed by smoke
    bomb and stealthing away. Repeat if risk worth it.

    Make your weapons and then stone unnecessary skills to free up skill space.

    I assume you going to do pvping... good luck...you may want Tracking...
