Poison damage is a special, decaying form of passive damage that can result from the use of certain combat items, familiars, spells and weapons. Some items do poison damage on their own, while others give a chance to inflict poison damage with weapon attacks.

Poison damage recurs in subsequent rounds of combat, decreasing in each round by 50% rounded down until there is no inflicted damage. Poison damage is treated as physical damage and can be decreased by the enemy's physical resistance.

Most poisons do not stack, and only the last poison to take effect will be used for poison damage. (Thus if you cast Stringozzi Serpent, a Mutant Cactus Bud attacked from a Buddy Bjorn, and a Mutant Gila Monster attacked as your familiar, only the Gila Monster's poison would have an effect.)

Chance to Poison

Specific weapons and effects have a weapon poison enchantment, which grants a chance to deal poison damage to your opponent each time you strike with your weapon.

Poison damage will be W/6 to W/4, where W is the total amount of physical damage caused, not including percentage-based bonus weapon damage. Elemental damage is also not included.

Other

Pufferfish spines and candycaine powder also describe themselves as poisoning one's opponent, but damage is listed separately, and increases rather than decreases.

Poison that affects the player are negative status effects and use an entirely different mechanic. See Poison for list of other poison effects.
