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 7-24% of your ability damage per hit.

Poison has a 1/6 chance per hit of being applied. 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.

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

A three dose weapon poison is required to restore a Yurkolgokh stink grenade (damaged).

Flask[edit | edit source]

This potion can be made into a weapon poison flask by using at least six doses of it with a potion flask. Players do not need a specific level to turn potions into flasks.

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.

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 weilded or in your inventory. Instead it applies a temporary buff to any melee weapon weilded, rather than a converting the weapong with a permanent chance of applying the poison.
