    Default Poison Mastery and Poison Potency

    Poison Mastery:
    Increases the Attack Power bonus of your Poison-coated weapons by 75% and the chance to apply Poison to your enemy by 20%.

    Increases the Attack Power bonus of your Poison-coated weapons by 75%, <---- Which Attack Power bonus does it refer too?

    Poison Potency:
    Increases the damage your Poison abilities deal by 5%. <------ Which abilities is it referring too? Bleed? Elemental dmg? Or simply the wep enchants?

    What are guardians?

    An instrument of faith!

    Poison Mastery - Your poison enchants (Lethal Poison, Virulent, Leeching, etc.) can now gain extra damage based on your Attack Power. Poison Mastery enhances this bonus a lot.

    Poison Potency - every rank gives a 5% damage increase to the damage from your poison weapon enchants (same as above).

    Neither of these benefit other soul weapon enchants, like Nightblade or MM.

    Should be noted that Poison Potency also increases the damage of Sab's Charges, because they count as poison.

    would be nice if the sabo-charges, which count as poison, would also be influenced by poison mastery to give them some ap-scaling which is found on a lot skills in other trees.

    Good point on effect of Poison Potency on Sab charges.

    Do we really want people to have to go 25 Sin to get scaling on Sab core abilities?

    poison mastery = amazing, get it, makes ur poisons scale with gear

    poison potency = only useful for sab, does nothing noticeable to poisons that stem from the sin tree, big wasted set of talents. great for sab charges though since they are poisons.
    Useful Rogue guides since I don't want to answer 50 billion questions anymore:
    Marksman, Ranger, Nightblade, Blink'Blade, Asstalker, Assdancer, and finally The Hoko Spec™

    Not complaining, since Sab needs all the help it can get, but that makes absolutely no sense.

    Mastery is definitely worth it for a Sin build though, Poisons end up being a LOT of your damage, mine hit for around 220 a pop with a 40% proc rate. Granted that's on a target dummy, but still, nothing to scoff at

    It was done for pvp reasons. Making them act as poisons allowed them to be cleansable. As partial compensation, Trion blessed Poison Potency buffing their output.
