The deadly trade of assassination
To kill ones foes, some turn to the vocation of poisoning. Able to poison food, or the tips of bladed weapons for use in combat, poisoners can apply a wide range of poisons available from alchemists.
To poison something click the skill use gem, target the poison potion you wish to consume, and then target the food or weapon you wish to apply your poison to. Poisoning is dangerous work and failure can cause you to poison yourself. When poisoned weapons are used in combat, the warrior wielding this weapon would be smart to carry an oil cloth with him. Poison is corrosive and once the poison charges on a weapon are consumed, the weapon should be wiped clean to avoid damage to the weapon.
Poisoning is delicate work, and in training this skill to GM you will consume a lot of poison potions. It is ill advised to macro this skill as poisoning yourself cannot be predicted, but many do try. To train poisoning, you will have to start with a low level poison, and work your way up to deadly poison.
