Ground Combat: Poison

Poison is a status effect which causes damage over time to organic entities such as Characters, NPCs, and Creatures. Things experiencing the effects of poison will suffer from damage until they are cured or until the effect wears off.

You can be poisoned several ways: by being attacked by a weapon which is by its nature poisonous, such as certain creature weapons and certain Non-Projectile Weapons; by being attacked with a weapon which has had poison applied to it; or by being healed with a counterfeit medical item.

Once poisoned, the effect lasts for a maximum of 24 hours. Every hour, you will take damage equal to 5% of your maximum HP.

Note
No entity can die solely from the effects of poison. Poison will always leave you with at least 1 HP.
Equations

Chance to be Poisoned = ((SkillA / 6) + 1) * (30 - ((SkillT + 1)/2))


SkillA = Attacker weapon skill
SkillT = Target Strength skill

Critical hits with poison weapons will always apply the poison effect. Critical hits will also refresh the poison timer to its maximum length. Non-critical hits will not refresh the poison timer.

Certain weapons, including creatures, are by their very nature poisonous. These weapons do not require poison to be applied to them, and they will always have a chance to poison any organic entity they hit.

It is possible to apply poison to a weapon, giving it a chance to poison any organic target it hits. Applying poison is instantaneous, and the poison lasts for 4 hours. Poison can only be applied to items the Character has equipped. The following items can be used to apply poison to a weapon:

Corellian Sand Panther Claw

Using counterfeit medicine items on a patient has a chance to poison them.

Equations

Poison Chance = (30 - (SkillP / 2)) * (1 - (SkillM)/6)


SkillP = Patient's Strength skill
SkillM = Doctor's Medical Treatment skill

Poisoned entities can be cured by use of an Antidote. The following items can be used to cure poison:

Antidote
Antidote

Use of a counterfeit Antidote has a chance to re-apply the poison effect to the target.

Equations
XP Earned from Antidote = ((Doctor Medical Treatment + 1) * 10) / 2)

If you are poisoned, you cannot be poisoned again until the poison timer has ended. However, the following situations will cause the poison timer to be reset:

  • A critical hit with a poisoned weapon
  • Using a counterfeit medical item
