Is this yarrow in particular, or because it was rotten? --LeaChim 22:02, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
Eating 2 handful of fresh yarrow gave the same penalties 2 minutes after consumption. Poison cure cured it. --Frazyl 19:11, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
Eating 1 yarrow also takes exactly 2 minutes and gives the same penalties. Trying to cure just after eating yarrow took me 2 ounces of antidote tea while curing it after it takes effect only takes 1 ounce (1 ounce = tasting with a blackened canteen) with a brewing bonus of 312. --Frazyl 19:28, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
After eating 8 stalks of yarrow it did nothing after 2 minutes but when drinking antidote tea it said "You feel cured!" so it seems like you get poisoned but not enough to get effects. This could explain why eating things like shiny black berries only work after giving a number of them, it raises a poison counter... --Frazyl 20:05, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
After some research by eating 40 stalks of yarrow (see research) it also deals damage in intervals between 30 and 60 seconds of 10% of the hp you have left. So theoretically you can't die just from it. --Frazyl 20:05, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
- Hmmmm... well, currently the category contains things that are poison if ingested/attacked with, not poison ingredients (it has poisons that you have to make in a lab as well as poisoned apples and such). I think it's consistent to have this there too. --Ilde 21:05, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
- I moved herbs to Category:Poisonous and npcs/items to Category:Venomous, poisons will be moved to quest namespace to prevent showing up in random, default search, etc. I'm writing a poison portal page with another page in quest namespace that will list poisons and link to those pages. --Frazyl (talk) 13:35, 30 December 2016 (EST)
