Version 0.12: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Type Potion
Name Potion of Strong poison
Icon Potion of strong poison.png
A terribly venomous potion.

Quaffing a potion of strong poison poisons you for 3 to 15 (more) levels (with a strong probability for 9). Poison levels over 5 are very nasty, and this potion can put you anywhere from yellow poison status to pink and even to red (where it can do 100+ damage before running its course).

It is not entirely useless, however. Characters with rPois may drink it for a small amount of nutrition.

"That liquid tasted extremely nasty..."
"You feel quite nauseous." (with poison resistance)


In 0.13 it will ignore poison resistance.

Prior to 0.12 this potion could be thrown with Evaporate to create clouds of poison gas.
