Unique pyromancy crafted by Eingyi, a heretic inhabiting the Great Swamp long ago. Creates a poison mist.

Eingyi was driven from the Great Swamp, however his pyromancy continues to succeed him.

Perhaps dwellers of the Great Swamp were reminded that their very existence is one rooted in heresy.

        Not affected by luck, and not worth the Sage Ring if you are not a caster BUT you could use this and then back up with Obscuring Ring to mess up with your enemies. Specially fun at open places like Undead Settlement and Farron forest.

          Around the time quarantine began, I had a bunch of invasions back to back with people just spamming poison and toxic mist while not wearing any form of headwear. Y'all have quite the sense of humor

            Used to kill large/slow bosses/minibosses, I used it to kill old deamon king and when he collapsed I sat and disrespected him whilst he slowly died

              I think everyone agrees that Poison Mist isn't all that great, or even good, maybe okay depending.
              But let's face it, it also only requires 1 POINT of stat investment as a knight, and none as some others.

              ...I'm gonna use this when invading people just for the laughs of filling their bonfire room/safe space with so much poison that their lungs collapse. Not because I might be a d i c k or anything...
              It's because I totally am.

                Really good against crystal sages if tou don't have int for storytellers staff. Havent tried on the Crystal sage boss, but takes 5 shots on the grand archives sage, he doesn't teleport and it makes the area so much easier..
