Don't get a full inventory of them...you only need 4-5 to make someone want to change their gear, which would help you. Also, if they decide not to change gear, that is basically free damage :)

In PvM, its pretty useless. In PvP, its BM and they could just drink an antidote. + It does minimal damage against anyone with max resists.

Not everyone will have maxed poison res. If they don't change their gear to add poison res you are basically getting free damage....like I said above

I don't care about "bm" anymore after someone told me my wind druid was bm because hurricane lags him.

Never ever underestimate poison in pvp, I have a lvl 76 plague/guided zon. And truthfully the only thing she can't take are chargers with the grief runeword. (For some reason if a char has any other wep she always dodges or blocks the attack therefore is not hit) yes you can take an antidote and easily get rid of the poison but most ppl don't think of this. As for the rumor about poison sc's negating critical strike and all thats is untrue.

Point is, with maxed out 290s you would reach 14k poison. It would still do bad damage do anyone with max resists. You would lose physical damage, life and frw.
