Poisoning is a very dishonest skill in Ultima Online, mainly used by assassins to kill people slow and painfully. Essentially, a weapon is coated with poison (mostly from the highly poisonous Nightshade), and then even a light scratch can bring the end. It also enables mages to improves the spells Poison and Poison Field. There are numerous weapons that can be combined with poison and have special moves, 70 skill for the first, 90 for the second.

Sadly, against human players, the skill is mostly useless, as they can cure themselves at once. However, against monsters it is very effective. To actually produce the poisons used, the Alchemy skill is essential.

Here a list of weapons that can be poisoned:

Fencing

Assassin Spike
Dagger
Kryss
Double Bladed Staff
Pike

Swordsmanship

Butcher Knife
Cleaver

Archery

Elven Composite Longbows
