Poison is a Status Effect in Elden Ring. Status Effects are various buffs or ailments that apply either a beneficial or detrimental effect to the target. Status Effects can be applied on both enemies and players alike. Status Effects are triggered after a buildup meter is filled by repeated application of attacks that cause the effect. Both players and enemies can have varying resistances to a given Status Effect.
Elden Ring Poison Guide
Poison is a status effect that builds up through repeated application of the effect. Poison is inflicted via various means including Weapons, Skills, Spells and Consumables. Once the Poison meter is filled, the effect is triggered and the target is dealt damage slowly over a long period.
Note that the higher is your immunity to Poison, the longer it takes for its gauge to fill.
Poison Effects in Elden Ring
Poison causes small amounts of damage every second and lasts for a very long time or until removed.
- There are two main categories of Poison; regular Poison and Deadly Poison. Generally speaking, the latter will do a concentrated, slightly higher DPS but for a shorter duration (and overall less damage in total).
- Poison inflicts differing levels of damage depending on the weapon used. For most weapons, it inflicts (Max HP * 0.0007) + 7 per second for 90 seconds.
- For the Serpentbone Blade and Venomous Fang, deadly poison inflicts (Max HP * 0.0014) + 14 per second for 30 seconds.
- If a Venomous Fang with the Poison affinity is used to proc poison, the target will suffer from deadly poison for the normal 90 second duration.
- For the Fetid Pot and Roped Fetid Pot, deadly poison inflicts (Max HP * 0.0014) + 12 per second for 30 seconds.
- Some enemies that cause poison build-up inflict it for (Max HP * 0.0042) + 18 per second for 30 seconds.
- Some spells (like the Poison Spraymist) may inflict poison at different rates.
- Some Arcane-scaling poison weapons may be more effective at poisoning an enemy. For example the Serpent Bow will cause poison to build up more rapidly with a higher Arcane stat. But the resulting damage is the same.
- Poison effects can be mitigated by raising the Immunity stat. Immunity can be raised by adding points into Vigor. It can also be boosted temporarily by using Consumables such as Cured Immunizing Meat.
