    Poison in PVP and PVE
    Even though Wynncraft is not balanced around pvp it is still something that should at least be acknowledged. Poison in pvp is absolutely devastating a small hit is turned into huge guaranteed damage making small and spammy spells extremely lethal especially when players have a much more limited heathpool than mobs. Combine this will reflection and thorns and you have a nearly unbeatable monster. However, it is also important to acknowledge that poison is fairly mediocre in pve so nerfing it would make it even more weak in pve where it already is balanced. The main question is how to balance poison in pvp without hurting its ability pve wise.

    Solution
    Poison should be curable by potion healing or by mage heals. Part of the reason why poison is so deadly in pvp is that it is unavoidable even if you can dodge all attacks you still will get poisoned if they have reflection, unless you are a mage then it is certain death. If potions were able to cure the poison status effect than its lethality against players would be reduced to a more reasonable level. Potions won't make the player immune to poison but just cure the effect when they first drink the potion. The intent for this is to not make poison completely useless in pvp. Right after a player drinks a potion they still can be hit by poison again right after healing and the potion cool down is still there making a time where they will take damage before they can cure themselves again. Adding this to mage may be too strong since there is no heal cooldown but it does make sense considering mages already cure other negative status effects.

    I do like this comment! It's a nice remark and does add another level to PvP where you have to pay attention to poison too, without taking its PvP powers away. Nice solution in my opinion. I like the idea that Mage can stop poison (also for nearby players), but this might be a little bit too overpowered, so maybe heal takes away 50% of the poison damage (maybe more or less, I don't know exactly). :D

    It's not a bad suggestion. It's actually pretty good. I have little to no Reflection/Thorns but my secondary has 1080/3 poison. It is pretty broken in PvP, especially as an Archer, because I can hit them with poison and they can't do anything about it (unless they're a mage). Any melee class is almost guaranteed to die from it. I think that it's a little unbalanced that you can hit someone with a poison weapon, and then switch back to a real weapon while keeping the poison damage.

    +1 for this suggestion

    As usual, you know when Ice Bear isn't in third person there's some major issues.
    Anyway, about the actual suggestion- I personally think fixing thorns/reflection with poison is a better idea, however if that is not possible or extremely hard to do for some reason, I think the potion/mage (although mage only I dunno, may be a bit too good) fix would definitely be a considerable replacement. Something needs to be done about toxo in pvp, and this is one definite option.

    I think strength or defense skills should counter poison

    I would agree but PvP has never been balanced in the first place, and doing it would set a precedent for balancing PvP.

    Not a good time for it.
