Player Methods of inflicting Toxic
If you intend to wield a weapon that inflicts poison, it's important to be aware of your Poison ATK Bonus stat.
Your Poison ATK Bonus does NOT affect the total amount of damage the poison will do; it only increases the amount of poison buildup you will inflict per hit.
Increasing Poison bonus
- Weapons with innate Poison get 50 points of extra damage.
- Weapons infused with Poison get 25 points of extra damage.
- Weapons with innate Poison AND infused with Poison get 60 points of extra damage.
- These items stack, so wearing both of them and using a Poison-infused weapon grants 2(60) = 120 points of extra damage.
Recovering from Poison
- Consume a Poison Moss.
- Consume a Divine Blessing.
- Consume a Monastery Charm.
- Consume a Dragon Charm.
- Cast Caressing Prayer.
- Rest at a Bonfire.
- Stand in the mist emitted by the Corrosive Ant Queen.
