this is great stacked with Bio II, Frost and Drown when in XP PT's... that's 4xDoT at once, whilst yu may not see the results instantly, it definately does help. Hurray for Poison II... Now if only they had Paralyze/Slow II >n>

DoT-wise, this is the most effective one in the game for an RDM. RDM's have been known to wear down mobs solo using Poison II/zoning tricks. For a long fight, it's not a bad use for one's MP.
Alas, poor FFXIClopedia. It's end was writ in greed and lulz, and ended with a /.

It all depends on your Enfeebling/Dark Magic skill. Have not really compared the damage done by each of them. I want to actually test this out but I don't have anyone that is willing to test this out with me in Ballista.

Only enfeebling. dark has nothing to do with it according to my knowledge.

I think he meant Dark Skill for Bio and Enfeebling skill for Poison II.

Enfeebling skill only helps it proc, not dmg/tick (I'm pretty sure)

Where'd you get that idea? Of course it doesn't, it's just poison. Whether or not you can have Poison I and Poison II going at the same time I'm unsure of, but I would assume not.

It, like Poison I, is enfeebling. It will not cancel out Shock, Burn, Chock, ect. because they are two different types of spells. It will however cancel out Poison I.
worth it for drk?

is it worth it for a drk for soloing or bncms?

If what these ppl say is true, then it seems worthwhile for BCNMs (Assuming they dont resist it) but not for soloing (DRK kill fast, not worth it, better save your mp for drain to save downtime). Thast just my view tho.
Poison II

I've been testing this spell out. As near as I can tell, it does around 5 damage every 3 seconds, for roughly 2 minutes. Kinda like regeneration, only in reverse. Thats about 200 damage for only 38 mp, assuming it lasts the entire duration. I dunno if this generates 200pts worth of hate either.

this is just speculation, regarding DoT and hate

I read on a post- and I will edit and throw it in here when I find it again -this info regarding hate.

Direct damage (hitting with weapon, ws, direct damage spells) gives a medium low to high hate, depending directly on the damage dealt. This hate does not dissipate very quickly, but it will, slowly.

Cures do the same thing as direct damage, with regards to hate. It won't go away very quickly, and the bigger the amount of HP recovered, the larger the amount of hate.

Regen will add hate, but it'll be almost negligable because the hate from HP gained every second nearly wears off before the next tic of hp.

I'd assume, that since poison and poison 2 are so similar to regen and regen 2 with regard to hp over time changes, the hate would also be nil.

keep in mind though, there's still a moderate amount of hate delt out anyway, just from casting the spell. Cast poison 3 or 4 times when it doesn't stick at the beginning of a battle and you'll find yourself getting beat on.

if that wasn't clear, forgive me... its rather late. I'll have that link up shortly, i hope XD

Well here's the answer 3rd hand. It does 8mp per tick. Not bad if it stays on for a while.
Worth it?

Where can you buy it for 12k?!? I bought it for a little under 23k from the vendor in Selbina with max ,or at least high, fame.

I feel it is worth it. As a Rdm, I rarely nuke for damage outside of Magic Bursts. My direct damage to the mob comes from DOT (Damage Over Time) spells.
