Poisons are crafted consumables from Alchemy in Elder Scrolls Online. They were introduced with the Dark Brotherhood.
How do Poisons Work?
- You must apply the poison to your weapon, consuming the item. Any light attack, heavy attack, or weapon ability has a 20% chance to apply poison effectss
- When a poison is equipped, the weapon enchant and charge will be suppressed and replaced by the poison description and count.
- Most poisons have a maximum duration of 6-10 seconds.
- Poison effects dillute if many effects are added.
How to create Poisons
- Poison reagents are gathered by killing enemies
- Poisons are created by combining reagents with oil-based Solvents. Each combination yields batches of 16.
- Higher level Solvents create stronger and longer-lasting poisons.
