Elden Ring: How to Cure & Avoid Poison

Elden Ring is a big game with a lot of mechanics. There are a lot of status effects that can be applied to both players and enemies. Let’s take a closer look at one of them and learn how to cure and avoid poison.

Status effects in Elden Ring can be positive or negative. Poison is definitely one of the most negative ones in the entire game.

If you happened to get poisoned, you will start to lose your HP (Health Points). In such a hard game as Elden Ring, that direct debuff is like a death sentence.

And if you’re tired of getting afflicted by Poison, why not return fire? Get the Rotten Breath Incantation to inflict Scarlot Rot on your enemies!

Make sure you also use the best equipment for your build.

How Does Poison Work in Elden Ring?

Poison is applied to the target by various means. The most common are just attacks from certain enemies like spells, skills, or poison arrows. You can also get poisoned by walking in poison areas, but you probably guessed as much.

Poisonous areas tend to be green and when you stand in it, you will see a poison bar gradually filling on your screen. If it reaches the end, you will get poisoned.

Knowing how to heal poison will help you beat one of the most frustrating boss fights in Elden Ring!

How to Avoid Getting Poisoned?

When it comes to terrain, the best way is to just ride on it with Torrent. This way you cannot get poisoned from your terrain.

If Torrent is not available at this location, just run through it as soon as possible. Do not roll, because it means that you get even more covered in poison.

To improve your resistance against poison, you can upgrade your Vigor attribute or wear appropriate gear, including talismans, that give you poison immunity or boost Vigor.

If you didn’t know that Vigor also contributed to poison resistance, why not check out all the secret Attribute effects in Elden Ring?

You can get rid of poisoned status by consuming Neutralizing Boluses that are a consumable item in Elden Ring. It can be purchased from a Nomadic Merchant for 600 runes in the South-East of Coastal Cove.

You can also purchase Armorer’s Cookbook [2] at the same person and learn how to craft Neutralizing Boluses on your own with Herba, cave Moss, and a Great Dragonfly Head.

Another method is to use a Cure Poison Incantation. You can learn it from Brother Corhyn who is located at Roundtable Hold. It costs 1000 Runes.

The third way is always to just rest at the State of Grace, but all your enemies will respawn, so make sure it is worth it.

You can also gain immunity to poison for a certain amount of time by consuming Immunizing Cured Meat. It boosts your immunity. It can be found in the world or purchased from a Nomadic Merchant in Liurnia of the Lakes.

You now know how to cure and avoid poison, but do you know how to beat one of the strongest bosses in the game?
