Weapon poison requires level 60 Herblore to make. It is made by mixing clean kwuarm and dragon scale dust in a vial of water, giving 137.5 Herblore experience. It is the weakest variant of weapon poison.
Previous to the addition of Evolution of Combat, Weapon poison was applied directly to specific weapons. It is now a buff on the player that applies a poison effect to enemies no matter what weapon or style of combat is used.
Applying weapon poison will give you a 12.5% chance per hit to poison your opponent(s) in combat. The poison effect appears as a buff and lasts for 2.5 minutes, dealing between 13-26% of your ability damage per hit. This deals poison damage on the first application and renews the poison duration. Poison will hit every 10 seconds and wear off after 3 minutes.
A three dose weapon poison is required to restore a Yurkolgokh stink grenade (damaged).

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- After the Evolution of Combat update, existing weapon poison potions were replaced with 3 dose poisons. However, the old weapon poison version was still obtainable from monsters as a drop, such as warped tortoises and ankous until Patch Notes 29 July 2013 . This version does not have the ability to let the player to poison others, nor apply the poison to any weapons (the original function). In order to solve this problem, drop the potion and it will automatically change to weapon poison (3). This has yet to be fixed. These unconverted potions retain the examine text of "For use on daggers and projectiles."
- The default click option is to 'Apply Weapon poison', even if no weapon is wielded or in your inventory. Instead it applies a temporary buff to any melee weapon wielded, rather than converting the weapon with a permanent chance of applying the poison.
