      Just gonna leave it here - both gauntlets and rat crest does not seem to affect poison arrows buildup speed - still takes 9 arrows to poison imperfects.

        A lot of people are talking about the whole set of sanctum soldier armour and (correct me if im wrong) I think that the entire set is not obtainable, the reason why i think this is because having the entire set having that one buff and being able to stack would be op.

          Can these add poison to your fists when using the vanquisher's seal? I had read that the shadow gauntlets did this for bleed.

            Says that it boosts poison buildup on weapons, but by how much? I need charts and tables! In all seriousness, does anybody know the actual numbers for the buff?
