Poisoning

I wanted to see if anyone had any suggested PVM builds that use poisoning. Could be a caster, could be a warrior. I have 100 Poisoning on a stone for several accounts and wanted to see if I could make use of one. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    You could, I don’t know how viable it would be, but the poison mastery debuffs poison resistance. So technically if you used a 100% poison wep or ran an 80 chiv build with consecrate. You could play some sort of funky necro/chiv warrior and corpse, injected, double strike for some serious damage.

    I ran a Nox mage for awhile about a year ago. It was actually pretty fun, and made a pretty good support character. Don't remember the exact build but it had Poisoning, Magery, Eval, and Med. I concentrated mostly on dropping Energy Fields to control the landscape, then Poison Fields where ever possible. Worked well in a 2-3 person group. The Poison Fields can really mess with Mob AI, and the E-fields can keep the Mobs locked in the poison fields. Have to be good timing the fields though.

    Once in awhile I'd try to cast Poison directly, but you have to basically be on top of the target for the high end effect. I wasn't good at it. Might work better with smoke bombs or invisi potions or something.

    Eventually I switched from Poison mage to Poison fighter running a Level III Poison Mastery. That build is Poison, Fencing, Anat, Tac, Parry, Healing. I think the Mastery bonus is based off poisoning and anatomy skills. Looks like it might have some potential, but haven't really had a chance to try it out.

    I appreciate the feedback and will post some results after I tinker around with one of my templates.
