Has anyone tried the Poison Master advanced Rogue skill? On which level? What are your thoughts?

Honestly, I don't even notice the Poison effect. I'm assuming it's a damage-over-time type of thing, but most enemies with level <10 don't live for more than a few seconds. The Toxic resistance is cool, but the skill seems considerably underpowered compared to Assassinate or any of the critical skills from the Warrior's guild.

It is direct damage. You have to apply a poison, of the two available, which will be enhanced by the skill.

Certainly, will get much better once you can brew your own poisons.

Do you mean you have to use a poisoned sword for the skill to have an effect?
If I use a sword without a poison effect will the toxic skill will have any use?

Can you elaborate a little about the future possibility of poison brewing?

Thanks

Yes, you have to use one of the poisons available for sale there on your weapon. They add a little extra damage. That damage is modified by the Poison Master skill, so it's very situational right now. Crafting is going to come a bit later, and brewing poisons is probably going to be a part of that. Since he dedicated a whole advanced skill to this, he's probably going to make a handful of poisons available to be bought and/or brewed.
