Eidolon's Poison evolution


Round 2: Summoner and Witch


Forgive me if this has been asked already:

If an eidolon has multiple Sting attacks, do they all become poisonous if the eidolon takes the Poison evolution once? It would appear so, since it says "whenenver the eidolon makes a successful attack of the selected type". But on the other hand, it says "pick a bite or sting attack" (suggesting only one attack benefits).

i would say just one, because all the other things work the same way, if you buy a extra set of hands you have to buy claws for each set.

Well, "Grab" definitely works on all attacks of the selected type, for instance.

I want to think it only applies to one attack. Since you can't have multiple bite attacks (for now), it seems only fair. However:

I think that's the key language in this instance. If you make two sting attacks they are attacks of that type, therefor poison.
