Poison Stone


An altered state of titanite. Use to imbue weapons with poison, or to provide poison resistance to shields.
Sorcerers at the Melfian Magic Academy once attempted to imbue titanite with various elements, but are said to have failed. Someone must have succeeded though; what else would explain this stone?

Poison Stone is a type of upgrade material in Dark Souls 2.




  • Can only be used at Blacksmith Steady Hand Mc Duff
  • Used to imbue equipment with poison. This reduces the Strength and Dexterity scaling, but adds poison build up. (Different weapons add different tiers of scaling). Increases poison resistance on shields.
  • Recommended to infuse it onto weapons which heavy attack is equal to hitting the target three times, such as Channeler's Trident and Pickaxe.

      For anyone wondering, YES, this is a useful item for PVP. Be you a Sorcerer, Pyromancer, Cleric, or Hexer, Poison is an amazing addition to your build. I am a Sorcerer/Hexer mix, and I use the Moon Butterfly Wings and a Poison Spear. Conclusion: God's gift to Dark Souls II. I poison my foes, and if they run from it I just use Dark Hail.

        Confirmed drop from basilisks (tested in Things Betwixt), as well as the enemies crawling in the poison fog at Harvest Valley.
