Version 0.30: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
Fires a magical arrow coated with the most vile and noxious toxin. Even those resistant to poison will be poisoned by it, and a small portion of its direct damage bypasses poison resistance.

Poison Arrow is a monster-only spell which damages and poisons a target. On impact, Poison Arrow does (70% poison, 30% physical) damage. This means that Poison Arrow deals a total of 53% damage to those with poison resistance, and 30% damage to those with poison immunity.

In addition to the impact damage, creatures damaged by this spell will always be poisoned (unless immune). Unlike most poison effects, resistance does not reduce the odds, nor does it reduce the amount of poison taken.
