Powers

Poison Alkaloid.png Alkaloid

When used correctly, poisons can be used to heal, as well as harm. Alkaloid consists of just the right amount of amino acids to safely heal a single targeted ally. The healed target is also left with some resistance to Toxic Damage (This Toxic Damage Resistance cannot be Enhanced). You cannot use this power to heal yourself.

Poison Antidote.png Antidote

This Antidote can free an ally from any Disorient, Hold, Sleep, Slow, Confuse, Fear and Immobilize effects and leaves them resistant to such effects for a good while. The Antidote also grants the target some resistance to Cold and Toxic damage. Some of the effects of this power will improve with Multiple applications and as you advance in level.

Poison ElixirOfLife.png Elixir of Life

With this Elixir, you can revive a fallen ally and turn him into a killing machine. The revived target has increased damage, chance to hit, Endurance recovery, and attack speed, and gains a resistance to Toxic damage. A brew of this sort is not without its side effects. The revived target will soon become very sick and severely weak after about 90 seconds. All effects of the Elixir will eventually wear off. Elixir of Life can only be used on Players and cannot be used on your Henchmen.

Poison EnvenomAoE.png Envenom

You Envenom your foe with a nasty poison, the poison then spreads to nearby foes. The toxin directly attacks the immune system, reducing the affected target's Defense, Damage Resistance and Hit Point Regeneration rate. The poison is so potent, that the target actually responds less to Healing while affected by the poison. Secondary foes struck by this power will have a lesser effect placed on them while the primary target receives the full effectiveness of the power.

Poison NoxiousGas.png Noxious Gas

You can infect one of your Henchmen, surrounding him with a Noxious Gas. All foes near the infected Henchman will be overcome with the Noxious Gas. Their Defense, chance to hit, Damage, and Damage resistance will all be reduced. Additionally, there is a chance that any affected humanoid enemy will become violently ill. Even the mightiest foe will stop dead in their tracks, and left helpless as they empty the contents of their stomach.

EdLetter.png Editor's Note:

The vomiting Hold effect is rare (less than a 1% chance of occurring per half-second), unaffected by Enhancements and buffs, and applies only to human critters and to other players in PvP, but it has enough magnitude to surpass any protection in the game and is unaffected by status resistances and PvP mez suppression.

The debuff values vary depending on the tier of henchmen the power is used on; the debuffs seem to be at 75% strength on a tier 1 pet, 100% strength on a tier 2 pet, and 125% strength on a tier 3 pet.

Poison Poison Trap.png Poison Trap

You can build a Poison Trap on the ground. Any foes that pass near the Poison Trap will cause it to detonate and release its toxic vapors. The poison is a highly toxic nerve gas, and any foes in the affected area may be drained of much of their Endurance and quickly Held or begin choking while suffering a minor amount of Toxic damage over time. The trap is almost impossible to detect, but it is fragile and may be set off by an enemy's explosion. Even if destroyed, the Trap will detonate.

EdLetter.png Editor's Note:

The Sleep effect only applies when the Trap is set off. The gas cloud it releases will infrequently drain Endurance from enemies within it, or Hold them as they retch and vomit, for as long as the cloud exists. Contrary to the power's description, the Endurance drain effect is weak as well as infrequent. The vomiting effect is not unusually strong like the one in Noxious Gas.
