Weapon poison detail.png

Weapon poison requires level 60 Herblore to make. It is made by mixing kwuarm potion (unf) and dragon scale dust in a vial of water, giving 137.5 Herblore experience. It can also be a reward from Observatory Quest.

Weapon poison deals 4 damage (2 damage with range) every 15 seconds. If it is not reapplied to the target, the poison deals 1 less damage with each passing minute until the target is no longer poisoned when the damage would be 0.

Weapon poison can be removed from a weapon with a cleaning cloth.

Total Poison damage[edit | edit source]

Total Poison damage is calculated by the sum of all numbers up to the max hit, times the amount of hits per number (4, per minute).



In conclusion: if you intend to kill something with only poison, it is recommended to use melee, as it provides almost four times the amount of poison damage compared to ranged poison damage and additionally has double the chance to be applied (1/4 vs 1/8).
