Ambiguous wording: what does this mean? Can it be improved? "Can be negated with a source of poison resistance, but it's impossible to be resistant to poison." --Chikinn (talk) 00:10, 20 August 2016 (CEST)

That's easy enough: the current DCSS concept of poison resistance is that Rpois is not covering 100% but reducing the shelter to only ~2/3. So "it's impossible to be resistant to poison" absolutely. But it's indeed crucial to survival to obtain a source of Rpois if not being generically immune to poison. -- Bwijn (talk) 22:08, 20 August 2016 (CEST)
All of that's true, but in regards to Spider Form specifically, it means that the vulnerability to poison you get from being an arthropod can be negated with a ring of poison resistance or potion of resistance or the like. However, neither of those stack with each other, meaning it is impossible to have poison resistance while in Spider Form. I'll try to rewrite it so it's clearer. --spudwalt (talk) 05:59, 23 August 2016 (CEST)
