Where to find

  • Obtainable from various merchants, enemies, and locations throughout the game.
  • Can be crafted via Alchemy by combining Vitriol of Bonecap (procured from Bonecap) and any Ashes. (see notes)


  • It is recommended to buy the poison itself for 10 gp when possible, rather than buy the ingredients needed to craft it yourself. The three Bonecaps required to craft it cost 5 gp each, meaning that unless you only need a single Bonecap it will be cheaper to simply buy the poison.
