As of March 29, 2015 I am not seeing the Dust of Decay on the poison merchants cited. I made sure to have the "use" block unblocked.

Are you a rogue? Poison vendor inventories may only be visible to rogues.

Confirmed on the test server. It is no longer sold by,

Plane of Knowledge
Loran Thu`Leth [Poison Supplies] - 3pp 3gp 7cp
Toxicologist Huey [Poison Merchant] - 3pp 3gp 7cp

Removed the item from these merchants. This may have been caught up in the merchant shuffle in PoK about a year ago. Perhaps someone can bug it so devs can get it readded.

To Shop or To Farm? That is the Question

If you are a poison making Rougue and would, or would have liked to, buy this item at the bazaar… What price would you be willing to pay for the convenience of buying all you need in one shot? What would you pay so you wouldn’t have to farm them? Would you consider checking the bazaar for this item at all or would you go right to farming them yourself? Have you ever bought them at full stacks of 100, or do you only buy them in smaller amounts, and like, how many at a time?

Thanks in advance for any helpful replies,

I would say 2 or 3pp. the dust of decay is almost always avail in small amount on my server but almost always have to farm the plague mites, which oddly enough frop from the same mobs in some casses so you would think there would be more

Thanks for the reply.

They aren’t so common at any price on my server right now. It’s hard to figure out how to price them or if I should carry them at all. If someone started offering them in full stacks would you buy them regularly? How many might you buy at a time? How often do you need them? Which other ingredients besides the mites are you looking for at the bazaar to make your poisons?

Was doing Carprin cycle thing in crypt of decay last night and picked up a bunch of these dusts off some of the repop trash between named on the way to Ultor. Was slumming in Najena today on an alt and found some drops of mercury and the smashed grubs from Drunder gets you pretty much all you need for the poison. Anyway 2cp.
dont see many

I dont see many of these around. I usually just get them in the Bazaar for 2pp a piece, 40pp a stack. LDoN split cash pays for my poison reagents, unless i go farming crap.. like Heartsting venom sacks..*mumbles* What ? You think thats a lot? Pssh... Just take the money you donate for Virtue, and get some reagents. Besides, if you can make this, you can make a Remiss poison.. if you can make, you shouldnt be getting hit anyways,and shouldnt even need virtue. Even if you do get hit.. chances are your toaster leave'uns anyways.. Youra rogue,, not a tank..let the clerics save the dot, hahaha o(^_^)b

Anyone know what this stuff is FOR?

We've been getting alot of these drops in PoN lately. Is it just vendor fodder or perhaps used for quest and/or tradeskill items?

Looks like someone mentioned it might be for new Rogue poisons below. Anyone ever verify?
