    I have been looking through the post and have not noticed anyone saying whether or not the new poisons, parasitic and darkglow are any better or worse then dp to apply on assasins weapons or ninja items..Has anyone messed with those poisons yet?? and are they worth using instead of Dp?:stir:

    What are you trying to accomplish with the poisoning? Trying to kill your marks or simply scare them away?

    Typically, I only kill bots. I find that attacking pimped-out PvPers with my fencer/thief is a health hazard. When I do use poison on a mark, this is just to shake them up a bit and make them run - the idea isn't to kill them ('cause I probably won't).

    I will mention that while I normally use deadly, I will carry parasitic upon occasion. It hits the same as deadly, and will be bumped also if you have sufficient poisoning skill. It isn't any harder to cure, but I frequently get 1 good heal from it, and if I am on my thief and am swinging a dagger anyway I will probably need it. It is a good poison to keep on hand, whether you normally run with it or not.
