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

      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..
