Weapon poison detail.png

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.

Applying weapon poison will give you a chance to poison your opponent in combat. The poison effect appears as a buff and lasts for 2.5 minutes, dealing between 12-26% of your ability damage per hit.

Poison has a 1/6 chance per hit of being applied. This deals poison damage and renews the poison duration. Poison will also hit every 10 seconds and wear off after 3 minutes.

It is dropped by ankous, warped tortoises, and shadow warriors. It also can be a reward from Observatory Quest.

Production costs[edit | edit source]

This table is based on the Grand Exchange prices of a vial of water, the kwuarm, and the dragon scale dust. It is accurate assuming all three items are bought from the Grand Exchange and the weapon poison is sold afterwards.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 3 June 2019 (Update):
    • Clicking the make option on a vial of Coconut milk will now default to make weapon poison rather than more coconut milk. Effectively, you can now put the lime in the coconut.
  • patch 16 October 2017 (Update):
    • Antifire, weapon poison, aggression potion and wilder pie effects no longer stay active on free worlds.
  • patch 23 November 2015 (Update):
    • Teleporting no longer removes weapon poison.
  • patch 8 June 2015 (Update):
    • Applying weapon poison no longer displays the message that you drank it.

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 is still obtainable from monsters as a drop, such as warped tortoises and ankous. 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."
