  • A more potent antivenom potion requires the drinker to imbibe less in order to cure poisons.
  • Drinking a sufficient quantity of antivenom tea will cure the drinker of all poisons they are suffering from, including:
    • Assassin manufactured poison that do not work instantanously, for instance Bloat and Achorion Purple.
    • Poisoned apples.
    • Giant spider venom.
    • Scorpion sting.
    • Spoiled or otherwise unhealthy foodstuff.
  • The poisons that can be cured with antivenom usually cause stat damage, health points drain or both.
  • The cure is instantaneous on drinking, the poison's effects cease to apply.
  • It does not provide any protection against future poisoning - this is a cure, not a vaccine.
  • A sufficient quantity must be drank in one go in order to get the effect - if it takes 3/100 of a bottle to cure, then drinking 2/100 twice will not work.

Ethel Applebaum says:

The order you put the ingredients in the vessel matters!
Ethel Applebaum exclaims: You know, if you take a spider, grind it up well, and make a tea of it with basil and another herb - oh, dang I forget the name - it makes a powerful poison antidote!


If it doesn't work add ingredients in a different order.

1. grind basil (ground basil)
2. grind fennel (ground fennel)
3. grind spider (ground arachnid)
4. mix ground basil with water (green-blue tea)
6. add ground arachnid (brown tea)
5. add ground fennel (octarine elixir)
7. brew (brewed elixir)
