    i got a beetle with 115.3 poison skill i was wondering what determines whether or not a beetle can use level 5 poison and whether or not my beetle will be able to use it.

    I can find no hard data on this but I believe it works just like a player your beetle will always do level 4 and at 115 I THINK its 11.5% chance for level 5 to be honest I cant find the formula right now but its close to this !!

    Infectious Strike
    Effect: Infectious Strike requires a weapon with poison charges on it (see Poisioning for more info.) Only weapon types those that have Infectious Strike as an available special move will be able to be poisoned. While no skill in Poisoning is directly required to use this ability, being knowledgeable in the application and use of toxins will allow a character to inflict more deadly poison on his victim. A successful use of Infectious Strike will lower your karma slightly. This move is exempt from the Tactics skill requirement.
    Mana Cost: 15
    Primary On: Butcher's Knife, Dagger, Assassin Spike
    Secondary On: Cleaver, Kryss, Pike, Double Bladed Staff
    Secondary Skills: The Poisoning skill has a direct chance to increase the level of the poison by 1, up to a max of level 5 poison. If your skill in Poisoning is at 100, the poison level will always be increased by 1.
    Note: The blade must have poison applied to it.
    at 115 I think this may mean it will always do level 5 but not sure what beetle starts with as I just tamed one monday
