An NPC thief, called Gindlin Toxfodder, will make poison for you.

He askes for a Giant Spider's Venom Sac, 20gp, and Crow's Special Brew (available from Crow at Crow's bar in Qeynos).

I have been told you may have to go through a side quest involving Rat the bum who hangs out under the Qeynos docks to get Crow's Brew.

Give him 5g and he gives you faction hits and a tattered bag, which you can give to Crow and thus get the brew. Gindlin is located in West Karana at (-2994, -13393) in a shack between a house and a barn.

For those who have tried to complete the quest using snake venom sacs, Gindlin will return them with a whatever comment. However if you give him 2 spider venom sacs as requested, along with Crow's Special Brew (I purchased mine from Crow in NQ) and 20 gold, you do indeed get a vial of spider venom.

[Mon Jan 11 19:16:21 2016] You say, 'Hail, Gindlin Toxfodder'
[Mon Jan 11 19:16:21 2016] Gindlin Toxfodder says 'Enough with the formalities. I don't make it to these parts often and I only plan on being here a couple days. My time is precious. You must be a rogue in search of the [death juice].'
[Mon Jan 11 19:16:23 2016] You say, 'death juice'
[Mon Jan 11 19:16:24 2016] Gindlin Toxfodder says 'Spider venom. You can't mix it yourself. If you want, I can do it. I'll need two spider venom sacs from the giant spiders. There should be some around these plains. I also demand a fee of 20 gold pieces, oh yeah!... I have been banished from Qeynos... I also want a bottle of my favorite brew, Crow's special brew, purchased from Crow himself in North Qeynos.'
[Mon Jan 11 19:16:47 2016] You say, 'Spider Venom Sac x 2'
[Mon Jan 11 19:17:00 2016] Gindlin Toxfodder says 'You did hear me, didn't you? I want two spider venom sacs, a bottle of Crow's special brew and 20 gold pieces.'
[Mon Jan 11 19:17:00 2016] Gindlin Toxfodder says 'You did hear me, didn't you? I want two spider venom sacs, a bottle of Crow's special brew and 20 gold pieces.'
[Mon Jan 11 19:17:00 2016] Gindlin Toxfodder says 'You did hear me, didn't you? I want two spider venom sacs, a bottle of Crow's special brew and 20 gold pieces.'
[Mon Jan 11 19:17:00 2016] Gindlin Toxfodder says 'Here. I could care less what you do with this. Hopefully you'll lay some on the Circle of Unseen Hands.'
[Mon Jan 11 19:17:00 2016] You gain party experience!!
[Mon Jan 11 19:17:00 2016] You gain party experience!!

[Mon Jan 11 19:22:51 2016] Gindlin Toxfodder regards you indifferently -- what would you like your tombstone to say?

Did this quest today but it is bugged on the Quellious server. The only brew that works is the Crow's special brew purchased from the pottery vendor in Abysmal Sea. The one from the under dock beggar quest does not work. Also only Spider venom sacs work. Crow was not selling any special brew when I was there. It takes two spider venom sacs, 20 gold, and the abysmal sea brew.

This is a great quest for an 18 or 19 level rogue. It gives you poison that you can apply yourself (and thus raise your skill) before you can actually make it. Once you can make this poison at level 20, I would recommend you make it yourself, since it will cost about the same and raise your skill.

As to the type of poison, this guy gives you tier I spider poison, which will weaken (reduce the strength of) your opponent. I like this poison a lot. Weakening your opponent means less hits and damage to you, but still a good length of fight to work your other combat skills. Despite the cost, I was using this poison often to take on even cons at this level.

Toxdil in West Freeport gives you tier I snake poison, which is a damage based poison. Either a one shot bit of direct damage (DD) or damage over time (DoT), can't remember which. That poison is nice too, since it makes for a shorter fight (and less damage to you).

Raise Apply Skill
# Jan 11 2002 at 5:22 PM Rating: Default
Is you use this quest to get poison, can you apply it while not being able to train for it? My Rogue is lvl 11, could he use this poison and apply it to his blade? Or do i have to wait a few more levels?
#Anonymous, Posted: May 24 2002 at 10:20 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) rogues get make poison at lvl 20 and apply poison at lvl 21, not 18.

Rogues get Apply Poison at 18, and Make Poison at 20.

So, this quest can be used to get poison to practice your Apply skill before you can make your own poisons.

BUG in this quest
# Aug 16 2001 at 1:29 PM Rating: Default
tried to do this quest and I took the 2 spider poison sacs (unstacked), 20gp, and the crow's special brew, and gave then to that glindl toxfodder (whatever his name is) in west karana. he's in a shed at one of the farms. he took all the items, but then simply said "Whatever." perhaps only rogues can receive the poison. Something is seriouly wrong with this picture


AND I am a Rogue 18th lvl.

Go to Toxdil in west freeport (Usualy in the entrance to the sewers behind the fake part of wall to the left of the gate(while facing gate coming from east commonlands), Give him 2 snake poison and 20gold and you will get snake poison and no faction adjustments that I can see and a bit of exp. From what I hear the snake poison is better as well, but im not sure I havnt tried both
only rogues?

I did this quest today.
First, Crow no longer was selling his Crow's Special Brew. I know he Used to...
To get his crow's special brew, give 3gp to Riz the Rat Misk or whatever his name is, in South Qeynos, you get bad faction, and can ask him about his "favor." he'll tell you that you can give him 5gp and he'll give you a bag. do that and get more bad faction. then bring that bag (it's a 2slot bag, but leave it empty) to Crow.
give the bag to Crow and receive a crow's special brew.
I took the 2 spider poison sacs (unstacked), 20gp, and the crow's special brew, and gave then to that glindl toxfodder (whatever his name is) in west karana. he's in a shed at one of the farms. he took all the items, but then simply said "Whatever." perhaps only rogues can receive the poison.
Crow's Brew for Toxfodder

Please note that he states that he want's a Crow's brew "from Crow himself". I tried it with both Crow's brews and it is definately the one you -buy- from Crow.

Welcome to my town, is there something I can acquire for you?
Only useful for levels 18 and 19

Only use this quest when you can apply poisons but can't make them yourself yet. It is cheaper and you don't have to run 2 extra zones (not to mention almost the entire width of WK)
