Learn Make Poison

Make Poison is a trade skill that can only be mastered by Rogues.

Once you have reached level 20, you may begin your Make Poison journey.

Getting Started

The first thing you need to do is acquire a mortar and pestle, the container in which this tradeskill is practiced. There are several types of Mortar and Pestles that are portable and kept in your inventory. There are also stationary containers that can be used to make combines.

Once you have a Mortar and Pestle, make your way over to Crescent Reach and seek out Poisoner Kamuzu on the second floor in the main building. He is on find. Complete the Freebie Tasks he offers. If you prefer, there are also Freebie Quest versions offered in Abysmal Sea.

Skill Modifiers

If you're new to tradeskilling and aren't familiar with Tradeskill Modifiers, you can find many questions answered in this FAQ:

Now head over to West Freeport and pay a visit to Event Coordinator Baublie Diggs and get the Beginner Toxicologist task. This will give you the Beginner Toxicologist Trophy, a skill modifier that will evolve to higher modifications as your skill increases.


  • Always get your trophy once your skill is 54. It will have the easiest items to make/ingredients to find.
  • You must equip your trophy to evolve it.
  • Your trophy will not evolve if you're attempting/making recipes that are more than 100 points away from your current skill level until you reach 250.
  • Your trophy will "catch up" quickly if you reach the next level before your trophy evolves.
  • Only successful combines will evolve your trophy.
  • General Information on Prophecy of Ro Trophy Quests

Alternatively you can acquire a Geerlok Automated Pestle from a tinkerer. That will add 5% to your base skill to help with successes. You must equip it in order to apply the boost to your base skill. The modifiers from the Trophy and the Geerlok do not stack. You will get the highest benefit between the two equipped items. Once you have evolved your trophy to Journeyman level, you no longer need the Geerlok.

Alternate Advancement Points

AAs for Make Poison are straight forward and other than having one additional rank that reduces your failure chances to a full 75%, they follow the pattern of other Trade skill AAs.

You do not need to purchase a level of New Tanaan Crafting Mastery to raise your Make Poison skill over 200.
