      The poison triggered by this thing is special. It lasts 180 seconds, decreasing hp by 0.07*maxhp+3 each second. The effects of other poison sources except the staff one last 90 seconds, hp-=0.07*maxhp+7 per sec.

        if you manage to apply poison with these the poison tick will only do 3 damage vs 7 damage if applied with a weapon or pine resin

          After shooting more than 20 arrows into the Champion's Gravetender I have come to the conclusion that these are troll items sold by patches to people too lazy to use a proper poisoning method.

            Unfortunately, these didn't get the poison build up buff that most other weapons got... not very useful for building poison, even when using the rapid fire from the shortbow/composite bow. Better to just use rotten pine resin on a weapon and poison things that way.

              Tried using these against the Hawkwood fight. Dude looked like a pin-cushion but still didn't get poisoned.

                So far these haven't poisoned ANYTHING successfully. I've shot 3-6 times in quick succession, depending on the mob, and poison effect never occurs. Does anyone know where in the game Poison Arrows are actually useful?I'm about to kill the final boss.
