      Definitely an ash designed for PvE. If for whatever reason you feel compelled to use it in PvP, you'll get more mileage out of it at a lower level like 20 or 30

      • Anonymous

        Does this deal more damage if I poison the enemy with 90sec Deadly Poison with the Venemous Fang or is it the same no matter the level or duration of poison?

        • Anonymous

          Deals standard Deadly Poison, 12 + 0.14% HP per tick for 30 seconds.

          "Pop" duration equivalents, compared to the active Poison the Skill would remove, shown as flat / %HP
          Normal Poison: 36/72 out of 90, 40/80% improvement
          Huge increase in total damage dealt if you wait until it ends
          Poison Spraymist deals the same damage in 30 seconds, making it better for use with this Skill if you are comfortable timing it
          Deadly Poison: 21/36, out of 30 - 70/120% improvement
          Popping Deadly Poison almost always increases the damage it would deal, but waiting is generally preferred.
          The Long Deadly Poison the Poison-infused Venomous Fang inflicts deals the same damage per second, for 90 seconds, dealing the most damage of any Poison, almost as much as ordinary Scarlet Rot.

          For the highest Damage per Poison, use the Poison Venomous Fang, or normal Poison.
          For the highest Damage per Second (including full poison duration), use the Spraymist Aromatic, or Deadly Poison.
          For the highest relative increase from the damage of the active Poison, use Deadly Poison.

          If you really want to make every poisoning count, use this alongside the Poison Venomous Fang or any normal Poison.
          If you're trying to kill things as fast as possible (with poison), use this with the Spraymist Aromatic, or at least Deadly Poison.
          If you are already using Deadly Poison, this can make it much better.

          • Excellent ash for PvE, especially when you want to substitute bleed. For best performance, keep your weapon at a physical enchantment, like keen or heavy, stock up on some poison grease and throwables, then throw this attack out when target is poisoned. Pretty fun.

              Received a buff in Patch 1.07

                Do we have any more info on how this thing scales? I've done a little bit of testing with a poison focused build and can at least debunk some of the speculation I've seen on it. For one, it doesn't seem to do a flat % damage, as it's steadily gotten stronger as my character has. I've also learned it doesn't seem to change damage based on regular poison vs deadly poison. I've tested this with poison spraymist, venomous fang, serpent bow, and serpentbone blade. The poison from each of these cause poison moth flight to do the same damage as poison infusion and poison grease.

                I still would like to know how poison moth flight scales though. Does the damage have stat scaling like some other AoWs do? Maybe dex or arc? If not, does the weapon upgrade improve it? Hopefully some others can work on it, because it's a pretty powerful move, despite some of the comments here, and allows you to reliably refresh your kindred of rot's exultation proc and mushroom crown proc with ease.

                  So I did a little personal testing and I might be wrong, but it feels like the poison burst is about 5% of the enemy's max HP and is not effected by the poison duration so you could throw it in last few seconds poison to throw in an extra burst of damage before it expires

                    The buffed attack speed makes this feel more like a strong attack.
                    Might be worthwhile to try now, been using it in a status build that relies on Kindred of Rot and Lord of Blood Exultation. This allows a more controlled refresh on the Kindred of Rot Exultation, basically acting like it's fix. Pretty damn useful now.

                    • Very underwhelming. The goal is to use this against a poisoned foe, which removes the poison and causes a burst of damage. However, the attack itself has a very long windup, low range, mediocre damage when properly used, and can be very difficult to land against mobile targets. In short, you'd be better off just spamming L1's rather than trying to set this scenario up in the first place.

                        Just went AFK at the Caelid Catacombs Site of Grace for several hours with the grace menu left open...came back and exited the menu and was given this AoW. Haven't ever spawned the Night's Cavalry.

                          This weapon art is terrible. It's got huge start-up, short range, low damage, and even removes the poison effect from the foe once it finally connects. I can't imagine any build making use of this one, even a dedicated poison build. Am I missing something here?

                            I got this by running away from the calvary after activating one of the weird crows. Made it to the grace at Dragon Communion Church, and it killed him giving me the item.
                            It was also turning morning. Weird stuff
