  • Magic

  • Attempts to cure 1 poison every 3 seconds.
  • Duration: 12 seconds

Abolish Poison is a dispel-over-time of poison, available at level 26.

Notes

  • Has the same mana cost as [Cure Poison].
  • Does not require Cure Poison to learn. Although functionally better in every way, Abolish Poison does not remove Cure Poison from the spellbook.

Tips and tactics

  • Can be useful for getting rid of poisons that stack in higher level areas.
  • Try to keep up Abolish Poison constantly versus Rogues, and as much as possible versus Hunters. It is always the last-applied poison that is dispelled, so advanced PvPers try to cover a dangerous venom like [Viper Sting] with a minor venom like [Snake Trap].
