ESO Best Poisons

Welcome to my Best Poisons Guide for ESO! Poisons are powerful consumables in ESO that can debuff enemies and make it easier to kill them! Players can create Poisons with the help of the Alchemy profession, as long as they have the appropriate skill! Alchemy is an important Crafting profession that can help you create various Potions and Poisons for personal use or to sell for profit! Selling Potions and Poisons you create with Alchemy is one of the most lucrative ways to Make Gold in ESO.

Poisons are mostly useful in PVP gameplay in ESO. With their help you can debuff enemy players, weaken them and kill them faster. Some Poisons are helpful in PVE as well but they are not essential for that type of gameplay. This Best Poisons Guide will focus on the best Poisons you can create in ESO with Alchemy. For the Best Potions you can check my ESO Best Potions Guide.

How to Make Poisons in ESO

In order to make poisons in ESO, you first need to allocate points to the Alchemy Crafting Profession. The higher your Alchemy skills, the more complex poisons you can make. The best Poisons combine a Poison Solvent with three Reagents. Reagents are Alchemy crafting materials that you can harvest around Tamriel from plants. You can harvest Poison Solvents from defeated enemies(NPC). Alchemy Reagents have four Traits. Combining them with other reagents with similar Traits will give you the Poison you desire. To combine a Solvent with Reagents you can use any Alchemy crafting station in Towns around Tamriel.
