A very helpful item to draw enemy's attention from your teammates in PVE, with an aux effect of poison to add up.
Highly recommended to have it in your slot when you're doing coop mutiplayer.
The greatest advantage of this weapon is accessibility. Easy to use on any build, fast throwing speed and craftable means you have a low effort means to access poison on any character. It can proc just fine on enemies you can spam darts on. It's not how powerful it is, it's simply having an easy means to apply a answer to a situation where you may need it (poison a tough boss from far to kite, used as a projectile to attract attention, clearing land squirts, trying to finish proccing poison when the enemy backs off).
So you need about 30 of them to poison malenia.... I'll try something else
There's 5 darts at the top of the first ramp leading down into the Fringefolk Hero's Grave
It took me 6 darts to poison the Draconic Tree Sentinel outside of Leyndell. My relevant stats are 15 Str, 15 Dex, 10 Arc. If the Draconic Tree Sentinel has 154 poison resistance like the wiki says, that means the Poisonbone Darts do between 26 and 30 poison damage (closed interval, aka 26 <= damage <= 230, aka [26, 30]). If the poison status dissipates at all in the time it takes to throw 6 darts (seems likely), then the actual value might be between 27 and 31 (or even more) poison damage. So, to be safe, it can be said that the dart does between 26 and 31 poison damage.
anyone know the poison buildup on this vs other poison consumables?
Also scales with arcane
