    What skills must you have to hit "lethal" poison with a warrior? And with the new "darkglow poison" and that, wat skills are needed to hit that as well? Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thx!

    More a question for the thief forum. As far as poisoning right now for a dexxer, it's a waste of skill points in my book conversely to what anyone else might say.

    In other games I've played they have set a cooldown cap on the timer for curing poisons. It is quite effective in that the spell is ready to be used again before the potion is ready for use. That said it is not a defect. For a player who would only use poisoning as a choice, it is poor tactics anyways. A veteran player will already know what to do and counter if say I see you and know that is really the only offense you have up your sleeve.

    As far as what else you wanted to know, you have to have the alchemy skill to make said skill. From what I recall it is about 65 or 70 skill to even attempt. I have no clue what the success rate is though. It will improve depending on what % talisman you have.

    I think 80 Poisoning grants you the highest level poison, like 80% of the time or something like that.

    Pick up a 30 SSI kryss. Drop your dex as far as you can go while still swinging at max speed. Get as much mana as you can, and as much strength. Get LMC.

    Go out and spam DP on people mixed in with Armor ignores. Carry a fast warfork to disarm everybody. Mages will be your pancake.

    These templates are formidable, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    PS. you don't need alchemy if you can get someone to supply you with poisons of every strength.

    Also, If you didn't know, you can gain every time you use Infectious Strike. Really helps on saving poison potions.

    Poison can be quit effective in a long fight if i remeber the numbers 1 dp pot gives 12 poison attempts. so 5 dp pots is 60 poison attempts that sure out wieghs the number most pvpers carry in cures. It is a bit under powered in group combat becouse you cant ever get there life down anofe before there guildies move in but if you spam pioson non stop the player will run out of cures and die or RUN period.

    For the mages that are skilled anofe to pull in arch cures when outa pots or not carring them a bleed weapon will make up that diffrance.
