  • Adds a small amount of threat.
  • Scorpid poison is affected by the pets spell damage (increased by the hunter's Ranged Attack Power) which increases damage dealt.
  • Any damage increasing effects active when the first scorpid poison afflicts the target will continue to affect each tick of the poison for as long as it stacks making very high damage over time possible.
  • Poison-dispelling abilities remove only one application of Scorpid Poison, not the entire stack.
