Disambig icon.png This article is about the skill type. For other uses, see Venom (disambiguation).

Venom is a skill type that adds effects like conditions to the next few attacks made. Once used, the venom will last for a moderately long time on the player, until the stated amount of attacks have been made. During this time venom skills will recharge normally. Venoms are also applied to trap hits and area of effect skills. Area of effect attacks will reduce the count by one per target hit, and only hit as many targets as could be hit.

Venoms are shared in a radius around the player to nearby players and NPCs. Venoms that apply damaging conditions will use the condition damage and duration of the character who applied the venom.
