Poisons you inflict during any Flask Effect have 20% chance to deal 100% more Damage
When you kill a Poisoned Enemy during any Flask Effect, nearby Enemies are Poisoned [1]

Master Toxicist is a notable Ascendancy passive skill for the Pathfinder. It grants a chance for poisons applied during any flask effect to deal more damage. It also causes you to inflict poison on enemies around enemies you kill during any flask effect.

Mechanics

When you kill a Poisoned Enemy during any Flask Effect, nearby Enemies are Poisoned: this modifier causes the player to poison enemies when killing poisoned enemies during a flask effect. It is a conditional variation of the modifier on Bino's Kitchen KnifeBino's Kitchen Knife

, and does not stack with it.

  • Poison inflicted by this effect is unaffected by your damage modifiers, and instead copies the DPS of the strongest poison debuff on the killed enemy.
  • This poison has a base 2 second duration, affected by global poison duration modifiers, but not by duration from support gems or Poisons you inflict deal Damage % faster.[1]
  • Enemies are poisoned within a 1.5 meter radius of the killed enemy.[2] This does not scale with the player's area of effect.[3]
  • Because poison always credits the player with kills, this effect will work with kills by poison from proxies or minions.
  • This effect is inconsistently prevented by enemy-destroying effects. Typical explosions such as Profane Bloom or Crusader-influenced body armour will prevent it, though exploding due to Infernal Cry's debuff or non-explosive destruction by Doppelgänger GuiseDoppelgänger Guise

Ruthless mode

Master Toxicist (Ruthless)
Ascendancy Notable Passive Skill
On Killing a Poisoned Enemy, nearby Enemies are Poisoned

Master Toxicist in Ruthless mode does not grant a chance for your poisons to deal more damage, and the ability to inflict poisons on nearby enemies on kill is unconditional instead of requiring a flask to be active.

Version history
