Mark can apply Venoms from Range

Turns out another useful thing about mark is you can use it to apply venoms from range without swapping to a ranged weapon. In any instance that you deal power damage, all venoms that are currently in effect on you are actually applied immediately. This applies to basilisk venom and skelk venom.

    Yes, this because there a damage component. You can add one per app so the best thing to do is have IMPROV. that way you get two strikes on a mark, reset with mercy and get two more. if using spider you can then use cantrip to get another trigger via one in the chamber.

    There were those that were claiming DE had nothing to offer Condition builds. They were Dead(eye) wrong :)

    Yeah, no kidding. Regardless of weapon type, you can always apply poisons at a range of 1500.
